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 »

可愛的 Ocean 正在準備期末考試,一大堆東西背的想吐血,想找點兒別的事情做做。我過去的學校生活一直豐富多彩,腦洞大開,有一大堆東西可以寫。所以我現在就來寫個微型回憶錄,說說我是怎麼在上高中、大學的時候,逃了幾乎所有中國學生都逃不掉的軍訓。

我是在 2006 年上高中,這時候我 14 歲。軍訓一共 7 天,我漸漸發現這差事不好玩,所以就挖空心思琢磨怎麼能逃掉它。於是,有一次中間休息的時候,我就去廁所了,偷著用手指頭摳嗓子眼。玩過這東西的人都知道,只要摳到噁心的時候,自然就會吐出來一大堆八寶粥似的東西,不僅如此,還會伴隨著 「念天地之悠悠,獨愴然而涕下」 附加紅彤彤、泛著淚花的眼眶。我在完成了以上任務之後,叫一起跟我上廁所的同學去告訴班主任,說我身體嚴重不舒服。班主任看到我這德性,就直接讓我回家了。後來我又把自己摳吐了一次,在家又呆了一天,第二天也沒去(就說在家打吊瓶)。

我是在 2009 年上大學,軍訓是 2010 年,一共 11 天。因為是大學,對軍訓的要求比高中嚴格,軍訓還算學分,所以這時候就得玩點兒高級的了。 繼續閱讀 »

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 »

我在西敏神學院 2017 年春季學期選了什麼課?

學校規定全職學生每學期修 12 個學分以上, 但是冬季和春季學期的學分只要加在一起滿足 12 個就可以了。不過,雖然規定國際學生必須全職讀書,但你如果是 3 年的 M.A.R. 和 4 年的 M.Div.,你每學期可以修 12 個以下,跟 Jesse 申請一下就可以了。只不過修不到 12 個學分享受不了 50 美元的優惠(如果沒有延遲交學費,學校會少收 50 塊錢)。不過我在這裡只是說一個政策,並不是說我想修 12 個以下。但是我也不想修的那麼鞠躬盡瘁。所以我冬季就不上課,我冬季也不用上課,因為冬季我如果上課的話,我在那個時候的必修課只有 Hebrew 2 ,而 2 在春天也一樣開設,並且讓我最擔心的 NT 123 Hermeneutics(釋經學)這門課的 prerequisite(意思是你可以修完 Hebrew 2 再來上 Hermeneutics,也可以 Hebrew 2 和 Hermeneutics 一起上。) 要求的 Hebrew 是 2 而不是 3,所以我這麼急著把 2 上完也沒有價值。我就把春季學期的課程斟酌再斟酌,明年春季學期的課,對於我來說真的有太多銜接的選擇了,比如我現在有 Hebrew I ,我就可以銜接 Intro to the Old Testament。我現在有 Prolegomena,我就可以銜接 Doctrine of God 。我現在有 Intro to Apologetics ,我就可以銜接 Principles of Christian Apologetics。很明顯我當然不可能把這些課都選上,所以我只能挑對於我來說最重要的那些先選。我選了 15 個學分,其中有 11 個學分是我必須要儘早解決掉的必修課,我沒得選擇:

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 »

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 »
