「道成了肉身,住在我們中間,充充滿滿的有恩典(Charis)有真理(Alethia)。我們也見過他的榮光,正是父獨生子的榮光。」(約翰福音1:14)

非是黑白

論到一間財務公司的廣告,將「買名牌、轆爆咭、用財務公司清咭數、再繼續轆咭買名牌」的習慣描繪得像正常不過的生活模式,文雅言評論這樣的荒謬如此說

這些財務公司顯然沒有社會責任
把扭曲的理財觀念演示得冠冕堂皇
雖然各人有借錢的自由
但把「先駛未來錢」包裝得如此理直氣壯
不覺得有點問題嗎

另外,在 1998 年香港電影金像獎頒獎禮裡面,許冠文也論到現今世代賣「老翻」的賣得,買「老翻」的也買得光明正大,沒有半點兒羞恥之心的可悲光景。


(H/T: Eric Cheng)

所以,這世代最大的問題,不再是誰是誰非,

而是「非」「是」、「黑」「白」。

當整個社會都是以果效利益、娛樂享受行頭的時候,你我有勇氣逆勢而行嗎?

背十架和分別為聖正是這樣的呼召。

    In Economic terms, the revenue is merely transferred to a different party, ie. the self. The only “solution” to this is if everyone stop trying to satisfy our own desires. Imagine that!

      Yeah Leo, you’re right. Desire is the root problem. In 1 John 2:16, it says the three things that come from the world are: “the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does.”

      Sometimes desire does not come merely in economical terms, but also in convenience and instant gratification. Sometimes it’s not as if we cannot afford paying, but we can’t wait for the real thing, and end up be tempted to buy or download a counterfeit pre-released copy of something….. (remember last time that Japanese movie we watched together? I should have waited for the official release, and then the disc won’t be skipping….)

      Hmm….. it seems like I’m describing the issues of pre-marital sex and cohabitation too. We can’t wait for the real deal, and end up having the experience of its original beauty and joy ruined. True love waits.

        That’s very true. Most problems of humanity share the same ultimate root – the self-centeredness of mankind. But since we’re the problem ourselves, then surely no human is capable of resolving ourselves. That’s why we need God’s help.
