审判外人 [Judging People Outside God]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书5章12节:“因为审判教外的人与我何干?教内的人岂不是你们的审判的吗?”
哥林多前书5章13节:“至于外人,有上帝审判他们。你们应当把那恶人从你们中间赶出去。”

今日默想:基督徒对于教会内外的事和责任应当分辨清楚。今天有许多传道人和基督徒,不看顾自己家里的人,不照顾教会里的弟兄姊妹,却跑到外面去参加各种政治和社会福利活动。“外人”在这里指犯罪作恶的世人。对于这些人,自有上帝安排的权柄来审判他们。赶这种人出教会是为着维护教会的见证和为着他本人和众圣徒的好处。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 5:12 :“For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?”
1 Corinthians 5:13 :“But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”

Today’s Meditation: Christians should distinguish in between matters outside church and responsibilities. Many Christians nowadays including preachers often being active in political or welfare events without even looking after their family and brethren in church. “those who are outside” refers to sinful people. God has His own arrangements to judge them. Expelling this kind of people from church is to protect the testimony of church and for his own relationship with brethren.
