清教徒教会对作父亲的要求

——Paul Washer, The Christian Life 2
“你要知道,在某些清教徒教会中,父亲若不愿意教导孩子要理问答,你就会被教会公开开除。我记得好像是约翰欧文的教会,每个父亲都要写自己的要理问答,让牧师检查他要教导的题材。你看到我们是何等的堕落吗?”

“Believing God” vs. “Believing in God”

I agree that “believing God” means trusting God, and “believing in God” means believing there is God or believing that God is real. The point is, if one truly believes that God exists or God is real, he or she will believe everything God says. Therefore, believing in God implies believing God, and vice versa. Actually, those two phrases are both used in the Bible. For example:

John 5:24 = “believes Him who sent Me”
John 6:29 = “believe in Him whom He has sent”

John 3:16 = “… everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”

Hebrews 11:6 = “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.”

The hardest thing 最困難的事

“The hardest thing in the world for the Christians is to live by faith, rather than by sight.

“It’s difficult because we never see God. We have not been eyewitnesses of the Resurrection like the first century apostles were. We live on the basis of the testimony of those who went before us, and we are to walk by faith. Living Faith is trusting the promises of God. It’s one thing to believe in God, but it’s quite another thing to believe God.”

— R. C. Sproul
