萬物之本

 

  「祂在萬有之先,萬有也靠祂而立。」(西117
   
在蘇聯共產當權的時代裏,流行著一個農夫的笑話。有一次一位督察下鄉去巡視農夫耕作的狀況。他遇到一位老農夫,就問他今年地瓜收成的情況。農夫回答﹕「簡直太棒了。」督察說﹕「真好,那麼地瓜平均有多大呢?」農夫說﹕「大的簡直難以相信,每個地瓜大的能碰到上帝的腳跟哩?」督察頓時臉上笑容收起來,板著臉說﹕「同志,你不要忘記我們是相信共產主義,世界上根本沒有上帝。」農夫回答﹕「報告長官,你說的對,我正是這個意思,既然沒有上帝那來的地瓜呢?」

沒有上帝許多東西從那裏來呢?宇宙從那裏來?大爆炸之前是什麼?時間從那裏來?誰定規時間的次序?生命從那裏來?如果無生命是從生命變出來的,為什麼幾十億年了,還沒有看到第二個無生命變成生命?沒有上帝我們怎麼知道什麼是善惡?如果弱肉強食,生存競爭,今天世界應當充滿強者,像野獸的世界,剩下的不都是暴徒?沒有上帝,人何必苦哈哈的工作?為什麼不去偷去搶?罪也不稱為罪,惡也無以為惡,這惡到底從何而來?

人的思想和理性都有限;如果把有限的東西說成無限的,豈不是自欺欺人?任何東西都有其根本,拾本逐末豈不是自亂其性?上帝是萬物之本,是永恆無限的主宰;萬有都靠祂而生,因祂而立。要否定上帝豈不是等於否定自己的存在?所以問題不在有沒有上帝?而是在為什麼我們不能與上帝溝通?

聖經告訴我們,因為人有罪性,就是背逆神的本質,乃是從始祖犯罪而來,使我們無法與全然聖潔的神往來。唯有藉著上帝的獨生子耶穌基督的代贖,我們的罪得以洗淨,才有資格回到祂面前。不侍父母謂不孝,不信上帝謂不義。不義的人只有接受基督的義,才能為上帝所稱許,成為祂的兒女。今天上帝藉著人事物向你發出呼喚,有什麼更真確的理由,使你拒絕祂的邀請呢?

 

The First Cause

 

   “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Col.1: 17)

   During the regime of Communist Party in Russia, there was a joke going around.  One day, a party supervisor went to countryside to inspect the farm.  He saw an old farmer and asked: “How is the harvest this year?”  The old man replied: “Wonderful!”  The official said: “Then how big is the potato?”  The farmer answered: “It’s unbelievable, every potato is big enough to touch God’s feet.”  The official changed face and said: “ Comrade, don’t forget we are Communists.  There is no God.”  The farmer said: “ That what I mean.  There is no God so neither is there potato.”

    If there is no God, where do things come from?  Where did the universe came from?  What was before the Big Bang?  How did time start?  Who decided the order of time?  Where did life come from?  If life evolved from non-life, how come billion years later, we don’t see another evolution of non-life to life?  Without God who decided right or wrong?  If the world is based on natural selection and fittest survived, then the world shall be full of mobsters like animal jungle.  Without God why do we need to work hard?  Why don’t we steal or rob?  If sin does not mean sin, evil is not evil, where did evil come from?

    Men’s thought and rationality are limited.  If we treat limited matter as unlimited, we cheat ourselves.  Everything has its root.  If we ignore its root and seek after the superficial result, it is in vain.  God is the root of everything and the Master of eternity.  All things depend on Him.  If we deny God, we deny existence of ourselves.  Therefore, the question is not God’s existence, but how can we communicate with Him.

    The Bible tells us that because of the rebellion of the first ancestor, all sinful nature makes us impossible to unit with a totally holy God.  Only through God’s begotten Son Jesus Christ and his redemption that our sins can be cleaned, that we become qualified to be children of God.  One who does not obey his parent is called dishonor.  One who does not obey God is called unjust.  Unjust can only through accepting Christ’s righteousness become justified before God to be His children.  Today, God gives you an invitation.  Do you have any reason to reject Him?
