Ruling Biblically

          In May 2014, I had the opportunity to visit the largest Franciscan church in the world—Basilica di Santa Croce in Florence, Italy, and I saw the tomb of Niccolo Machiavelli (1469–1527), and those of Michelangelo, Galileo and Rossini as well, in this 722-year-old Gothic cathedral . Machiavelli is not an unfamiliar person to most of us. He was an Italian historian, writer, and especially known to us for his role as a politician in the Republic of Florence during the Renaissance. The Italian politician, in his political article 「Be Powerful,」 繼續閱讀 »

【AP 101】護教學導論:Keller Discussion Response

課程:【AP 101】Introduction to Apologetics 護教學導論
教授:Dr. William Edgar
學期:2016 Fall
成績:Good

Keller Discussion Response I

        In part I, Tim Keller discusses some objections to the truth of Christianity, saying that the truth of Christianity is reasonable and existential. He says that Christian truth is reasonable because he thinks Christian argument and truth is overall strong, and that Christian truth is existential which because of this strong experience of God』s existence. In my opinion, even though Christian truth can be supported by abundant external evidence and we Christians can experience the existence of God, Christian truth is only based on the internal evidence which is rooted in Scripture, the word of the triune God. In addition, the existence of God can only be proved by God himself. 繼續閱讀 »

【AP 101】護教學導論:Chang Lecture Response

課程:【AP 101】Introduction to Apologetics 護教學導論
教授:Dr. William Edgar
學期:2016 Fall
成績:Thoughtful

Chang Lecture Response I

         In the lecture, Joanny Chang focuses on the topic of Confucian ethics, and she discusses the development of Confucianism in ancient China chronologically. I will demonstrate that strictly speaking, Confucianism is not a religion, and then I will critique the worldview of Confucianists. To begin with, as for me, even though the system of Confucianism seems religious (and superficially speaking of Confucianism, it even has some notions in common with Christianity, such as the notion and the consciousness of heaven as believed by kings of the Zhou dynasty), 繼續閱讀 »

課程:【ST 101】Prolegomena 神學導論
教授:Dr. David Garner
學期:2016 Fall
成績:99% (A)

E. J. Young, Thy Word is Truth (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1957), Chapters 3, 5 (pp. 65–82, 113–138)
           In chapter 3, Young demonstrates that the Bible is also written by human authors. At the very beginning, Young refutes the false understanding of the doctrine of inspiration. Then, Young says that according to the Bible, the human authors are the instruments of God who speaks his word through the authors. Then, he states, human authors are both holy men and sinful men, and according to the New Testament, the authors are real men. However, Young points out that God also prepares the human authors in their daily lives so that they can complete the writing tasks, and that this is the providential work of God. 繼續閱讀 »

Comparison and Contrast on Canon

        When it comes to the topic of canon, the perspective of the Kruger passage from 「Canon Revisited」1 is the opposite of that of the McDonald passage2 

        Kruger』s reasons are to support the thesis that the authority of the canon only depends on the canon itself. First, Kruger refutes the claim that the canon is determined by the community. As Kruger has mentioned, human involvement does not eliminate the possibility that God acts (internal evidence) in the development of the canon, and the development of the canon is not based on the human construction, but only based on the ultimate authority of 繼續閱讀 »

成績:99% (A)

Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics (ed. by John Bolt; transl. by John Vriend; Grand Rapids: Baker, 2003), 1:353–85.
         In this passage, Bavinck refutes naturalism (rationalism) and Roman Catholic supernaturalism, which are two ways that wrongly interpret the meaning of the doctrine of revelation. In the first place, Bavinck uses the reformational view to prove Roman Catholic supernaturalism to be erroneous. In the second place, Bavinck points out the scriptural interpretation of revelation as a contrast to rationalistic naturalism.
         To begin with, Bavinck argues that Roman Catholic supernaturalism misinterprets the difference between the natural and the supernatural. Then Bavinck gives nuances to the two terms, saying that nature tends to be a more broad meaning that it encompasses the range of all the visible and invisible world, which draws a distinction between the natural and the supernatural. 繼續閱讀 »

【CH 221】早期教會史:Online Lectures Summary

課程:【CH 221】Ancient Church 早期教會史
教授:Dr. Carl Trueman
學期:2016 Fall
成績:Pass/Fail 計算

         In the first lecture, Dr. Trueman focuses on the topic of the doctrine of inerrancy of the Bible. He points out three notions. The first notion is inscripturation. Inscripturation is the idea that God』s revelation can itself be expressed adequately in a verbal form, and Scripture itself points to the phenomenon that nothing is more fundamental to God』s identity than the fact that he speaks. There are three elements to this point: church government, or the structure of the church; the rule of faith; and Scripture, which is the standard and the foundation.Second, the notion of inspiration refers to Scripture as inspired and spoken by the Spirit. As Dr. Trueman stated, the Apostolic Fathers believed the dictation theory of inerrancy. They put the Scripture in relation to the existence of God. 繼續閱讀 »

成績:97% (A)

Geerhardus Vos, Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1994), 3–26.
          In chapter one, Vos discusses what Biblical Theology is and how he does Biblical Theology. Vos defines Biblical Theology as 「the process of the self-revelation of God deposited in the Bible」 (Vos, 5). First, Vos discusses the relationship between the revelation-process and the redemptive process, saying that they co-exist, yet the revelation-process ceases earlier than the redemptive process. By distinguishing the 「objective and central」 (Vos, 6) aspect and the 「subjective and individual」 (Vos, 6) aspect of redemption, Vos thinks that now revelation is only in relation to the 「objective and central」 (Vos, 6) redemptive process because the revelation in Scripture has ceased, yet the revelation in Scripture also largely affects the 「subjective and individual」 (Vos, 6) redemption. Second, Vos connects act revelation and word revelation. 繼續閱讀 »
