再思神的公義 Rethinking God’s Justice

沒有選擇權的人人平等是真的公平公義嗎? 神的公義是在尊重人自由意志之下,神不會干涉我們所作的決定,但神卻讓我們在過程中能認識祂的公義,神的公義不是為審判乃是為拯救,作為神的兒女,當我們實行公義的時候,我們也是為神的慈愛與拯救。

Is there true justice and fairness when there is no freedom of choice? This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reminds us that God will not interfere with the decisions we make for He has given us free will. Instead, God allows us to learn about His justice in the process. As God’s children, it is for God’s love and salvation that we pursue justice.

Read Today’s Scripture Passage

Job 8, 18, 25
