About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Why I Didn't Go to Westminster Theological Seminary
      (Michael Oh)

      Monday, April 28, 2008

      I found this sermon earlier tonight. It's only 20 minutes long, but it's very well said. It's very convicting to hear how the faithful outside of America view what is passing itself off as "Christianity" these days here in this land. It's 20 minutes well spent.

      (I didn't post this as a knock against Westminster. I'm not familiar enough with how the school operates to give an adequate evaluation of it. I posted it because of his criticism of "Americanity" as a whole. Even Oh says that he's appreciative for Westminster during this lecture so I don't think it was his intention to dismiss the seminary, either.)



      Here's some info on Dr. Oh:

      Michael is president and founder of Christ Bible Seminary in Nagoya, Japan ( www.shingakkou.net). Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Michael attended the University of Pennsylvania as an undergraduate where he also received his Master's degree in Education and his PhD in Leadership and Cultural Anthropology from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Michael received his seminary training at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School where he earned a Master of Divinity degree. After serving short-term in Japan in 1998-1999 and planting Chita Zion Church, Michael completed a Master's degree in East Asian Studies on a Regional Studies scholarship at Harvard University with a concentration in Japanese anthropology and sociology.

      Michael and Pearl moved back to Japan in January of 2004 with their daughters Hannah and Mikaela. Since then two more daughters Eowyn and Elliot were born in Nagoya. Michael is a PCA Teaching Elder in the Philadelphia Presbytery and is actively involved in the executive leadership of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization. Michael recently gave the keynote address for the Lausanne Younger Leaders Gathering in Malaysia before 550 young Christian leaders from over 110 nations. You can learn more about this ministry at http://cbijapan.org/fonts and at Michael's blog ( http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/ohfamily).

      Amen. After leaving charismania, I joined the conservative churches, only to be puzzled over their lack of zeal for the Gospel, evangelism, discipleship etc. Why this parochialism? Why is it that those who are supposedly the "most pure" are the most selfish with what they claim to believe in?

      「大師們。」她輕聲說:「他們告訴我的。他們說我活過86次。」

      「帶著對任何有關輪迴轉世的科學論文的強烈渴望,我翻遍了醫學圖書
      館。讀得越多,就越意識到,儘管曾認為自己頭腦的每方面都受過良好的
      教育,但我的知識還是很有限的。有許多這方面的研究和出版物,都是由
      知名的臨床醫生和科學家們實施、驗證並重複的,但是很少人知道。他們
      有可能都錯了或者都被欺騙了嗎?證據是如此的確鑿,而我還是懷疑。不
      管確鑿與否,我覺得難以相信。」

      「這經驗再加上隨後其他病人的經驗,我的價值觀開始轉變,從物質轉入
      精神,而且更關心人我關係,不再汲汲於名利,我也開始理解甚麼是可以
      帶走而甚麼帶不走。確實,在這之前我一定也不相信肉體死亡後我們的某
      一部份還有生命。」

      「那幾週,我重溫了在哥倫比亞大學念一年級時所學的比較宗教課的課
      本。在《聖經》舊約和新約全書中確實提到輪迴轉世。公元325年,羅馬康
      斯坦丁大帝和他的母親海倫娜,將新約中關於輪迴轉世的內容刪去了。」

      在《前世今生》一書中也提到,大師們通過凱瑟琳共示現了10餘次,談話涉
      及到人類的不朽及生命的真正意義:「我們的任務是學習,豐富知識成為
      神那樣的生命。直到我們可以解脫了,然後我們會回來教誨和幫助其他
      人。」

      请问您是否有证据证明您的话语?羅馬康斯坦丁大帝从圣经册出关于轮回转世的客观博学证据何在?为什么我们要相信人本主义所推荐的比较宗教课的谎言?
      (Why should we believe your assertions? Where is your objective and scholarly proof that Constantine was the one who removed the teaching of reincarnation from the Bible? Why should we believe the lies of the humanistic theories derived from the study of comparative religion?)
