不待弟兄姐妹如仇人 [Do Not Count Brethren as Enemy]

书卷:帖撒罗尼迦后书(新约)
作者:保罗

帖撒罗尼迦后书3章15节:“但不要以他为仇人,要劝他如弟兄。”

今日默想:教会中的纪律行动,应当满有弟兄相爱之情,而不应该过分严厉苛刻。信徒待人的原则,不要以恶报恶,乃要以善胜恶。弟兄犯错了,仍是弟兄,顶多看他像外邦人一样,总不至于因此变成仇人。今天基督教界,往往对真理见解相异的人非常敌视,甚至比对待罪人还恶劣。他们所敌视的弟兄,很可能在基本真理上都相同,例如上帝的独一性、耶稣基督的神性、救赎的要义等。只是在无关宏旨的道理上看法不同,便如此对待,实在不是真信徒所该有的情形。

Book: 2 Thessalonians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Thessalonians 3:15 :“Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.”

Today’s Meditation: The disciplinary actions in church should be filled with brotherly love but not too harsh. We should treat one another with no one evil for evil while overcoming evil with good. If one committed sins, he still is our brethren. We only treat him as Gentiles at most but do not count him as an enemy. Today’s Christianity world has many people against one another whose knowledge towards truth differ. Sometimes such against is even worse than the way they treat sinners. The brethren we are against with may have the same Christianity foundation such as acknowledging the oneness of God, Jesus as God and the redemption. It is not good to treat brethren differently just because we have different opinions on irrelevant truth.
