彼此接纳 [Receive One Another]

书卷:罗马书(新约)
作者:保罗

罗马书14章1节:“信心软弱的,你们要接纳,但不要辩论所疑惑的事。”

今日默想:基督徒彼此相交的根基乃是耶稣基督的救赎生命之道,并不是对所有的真理都有一致的看法;若果如此,则从来没有两个基督徒的看法是完全一致的,也就是说,谁都不能接纳另一个基督徒而彼此相交了。若要能接纳那些与我们的见解不同的基督徒,便需超越过道理知识,而从灵和生命的层次来对待别人。真实主的教会,应当能包容各种不同真理见解的信徒。凡不能容纳各种真基督徒的,不能视为是主所要的教会。在教会中要把人和事分清楚,我们所该接纳的是人,并不是接纳所有的事。辩论是无益的,不但于事无补,解决不了问题,反而挑启更多的争端和误解,损害彼此的感情,亦不能使信心坚固。疑惑和辩论,只能给教会带来难处;若要教会多得建造,便不要注意是非、对错,乃要注意接纳人。基督徒应能分辨什么是重要的,什么是不重要的;什么是必须坚持的,什么是可以容忍的。除了异端以外,我们应当学习包容各种不同道理看法的信徒,而不与之争辩。

Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 14:1 :“Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things.”

Today’s Meditation: The foundation of Christians to have fellowship with one another is the salvation of Jesus Christ and the way of life, instead of having same opinion towards teachings. There is no two Christians with exact same opinions. Thus, one cannot have fellowship with another if our foundation is entirely built on teachings. We need to treat one another with spirit and life by surpassing the level of truth and knowledge in order to accept the Christians that we are having different opinions with. A church of Lord must be able to tolerate Christians with different understandings towards truth. A church that failed to do so cannot be acknowledged as the church Lord wants. We need to separate things up clearly between people and matters in church, for we should be accepting people instead of the matters. Disputes are not benefiting any party for they do not help and cannot solve problems. Disputes will only bring more quarrels and misunderstandings. Disputes will only bring difficulties to church. Hurting one another’s feelings cannot strengthen our faith. We should be taking care of people instead of matters in order to build a better church. We should be able to identify things that are important, unimportant, things that we should be uphold to, and things we should tolerate with. We need to learn to tolerate with Christians that have different opinions with us and avoid any dispute, except towards heresies.
