• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride

    基督與召會
    生命與建造
    那靈與新婦



    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Absolutely Not!

Shall the Jews’ unbelief annul the faithfulness of God? (Jew)

3:1-4 这样,犹太人有什么长处?割礼有什么益处?各方面都很多。第一,是神的谕言信托了他们。即便有不信的,这有何妨?难道他们的不信,就废掉神的信么?绝对不能!神总是真实的,人都是虚谎的,如经上所记:“好叫你说话的时候,显为公义;被人审判的时候,可以得胜。”
What then is the advantage of the Jew? Or what is the profit of circumcision? Much in every way. First, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God. For what if some disbelieved? Shall their unbelief annul the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! But let God be true and every man a liar, as it is written, “That You may be declared righteous in Your words and may overcome when You are judged.”

Is the God who inflicts wrath unrighteous?

3:5-6 我且照着人的常话说,我们的不义若显出神的义来,我们要说什么?神降怒,难道是祂不义么?绝对不是!若是这样,神怎能审判世界?
But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is the God who inflicts wrath unrighteous? I speak according to man. Absolutely not! Otherwise how shall God judge the world?

Do we make the law of no effect through faith?

3:30-31 神既是一位,祂就要本于信称那受割礼的为义,也要藉着信称那未受割礼的为义。这样,我们藉着信使律法失效么?绝对不是!反而坚固了律法。
If indeed God is one, who will justify the circumcision out of faith and the uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make the law of no effect through faith? Absolutely not! Rather, we establish the law.

Should we continue in sin that grace may abound?

6:1-2 这样,我们可说什么?我们可以仍留在罪中,叫恩典增多么?绝对不可!我们这向罪死了的人,岂可仍在罪中活着?
What then shall we say? Should we continue in sin that grace may abound? Absolutely not! We who have died to sin, how shall we still live in it?

Should we sin because we are not under the law but under grace?

6:14-15 罪必不能作主管辖你们,因你们不在律法之下,乃在恩典之下。这却怎么样?因我们不在律法之下,乃在恩典之下,就可以犯罪么?绝对不可!
For sin will not lord it over you, for you are not under the law but under grace. What then? Should we sin, because we are not under the law but under grace? Absolutely not!

Is the law sin?

7:6-7 但我们既然在捆我们的律法上死了,现今就脱离了律法,叫我们在灵的新样里服事,不在字句的旧样里。这样,我们可说什么?律法是罪么?绝对不是!只是非藉律法,我就不知何为罪;非律法说,“不可起贪心,”我就不知何为贪心。
But now we have been discharged from the law, having died to that in which we were held, so that we serve in newness of spirit and not in oldness of letter. What then shall we say? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! But I did not know sin except through the law; for neither did I know coveting, except the law had said, “You shall not covet.

Did that which is good become death to me?

7:12-13 这样看来,律法是圣的,诫命也是圣的、义的并善的。这样,那善的是叫我死么?绝对不是!然而罪为要显出真是罪,就藉着那善的叫我死,使罪藉着诫命成为极其罪恶的。
So then the law is holy, and the commandment holy and righteous and good. Did then that which is good become death to me? Absolutely not! But sin did, that it might be shown to be sin by working out death in me through that which is good, that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.

Is there unrighteousness with God?

9:13-14 正如经上所记:“雅各是我所爱的,以扫是我所恨的。” 这样,我们可说什么?难道在神有不义么?绝对没有!
As it is written, “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” What then shall we say? Is there unrighteousness with God? Absolutely not!

Has God cast away His people? (Jew)

11:1    这样,我说,神弃绝了祂的百姓么?绝对没有!因为我也是以色列人,出于亚伯拉罕的后裔,属便雅悯支派的。
I say then, Has God cast away His people? Absolutely not! For I also am an Israelite, out of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

Have they stumbled so as to fall?

11:11    这样,我说,他们失脚是要他们跌倒么?绝对不是!反倒因他们的过失,救恩便临到外邦人,好惹动他们妒忌。
I say then, Have they stumbled so as to fall? Absolutely not! But by their misstep salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.
