川普弟兄白宮開始內閣查經班 

重現百年敬虔風範

在十位內閣成員的支持下、白宮重新開始了每週一次的基督教查經班。每週的星期三舉行、一般是60-90分鐘、主要由副總統彭斯主持。這是美國白宮百年歷史的首次。

而國會山莊巳經持續多年了,目前已經增長到50位國會議員了。

由牧師帶領總統及部長等的禱告和查經,驅使代表美國政府的敬虔基督徒閣員、他們的良心必須真實的面對上帝

台灣旅行法創下多重的巧合(在上帝手上沒有偶然)

1. 眾議院無異議全票通過;參議院採用眾議院版本一樣的無異議全票通過。兩院全票通過的意義是:1)本案是美國的國家利益、2)本案是台灣人天賦人權的恢復案、美國必須要補償的議案!

天恩客翻譯台灣旅行法

法案還原漢文如下:

第一章 法案名稱:台灣旅行法

第二章 已發掘事因

2-1. 台灣關係法1979年生效以來、提供西太平洋域的安全與和平巳達37年矣;

2-2. 台灣關係法巳宣誓了美國在西太平洋域針對政治、安全、及經濟利益的立場,亦是國際社會所關切的事項;

2-3. 美國認為用和平以外的方式試圖改變台灣的未來命運,包含杯葛、及禁運得視為對西太平洋域和平與安全的威脅,會使美國進入「生死之博」的考慮;

2-4. 台灣的民主在一九八十年代末巳開始轉型、至今成為許多亞洲國家及人民「耳目一新」的烽火台及典範(暗示獨立自主的國格已成形);

2-5. 鑒於美國的內閣及高級官員如何訪問一個國家、可視為兩國關係的廣度和深度「的表徵」;

2-6. 並基於台灣關係法中、早巳虧缺於美國自我設限雙方高官交往及互訪「的事實」;

第三章 眾議之案旨及政策要義

a) 眾議院之本案要旨 - 美國政府應鼓勵美國及台灣雙方各級官員的互訪。

b) 政策要義 - 美國國家應有以下政策:

3-1) 允許美國政府所有層級官員含內閣國安官員、領導官員、及分部執行官員訪問台灣並會見對等的台灣官員;

3-2) 允許台灣高級官員在有尊榮條件下訪問美國的官員們、含國務院、國防部、和內閣部會;

3-3) 鼓勵台北經濟文化代表處及其所設之單位、在美國開展業務。業務活動所需配合的、「含」美國國會議員、聯邦政府、地方政府、以及台灣高級官員均得參與。

+

特別注意:

37年前的臺灣關係法美國早已不再提出「中華民國政府」和「臺灣政府」這一名詞了「中華民國」就已經算是永久消失了「中華民國」能代表中國

美國只提到「臺灣的官員」、所以中共無計可施!

2. 參議院又刻意選在2月28日通過、代表了以基督教立國的美國、以第三方參與了台灣人額外的救贖!

3. 川普總統刻意在3月16日、簽署了法案使其生效。聖經約翰福音3章16節正提到上帝的救恩:「神愛世人、甚至𧶽祂的獨生子⋯⋯不致滅亡反得永生!

4. 飄揚在中華民國臺灣的青天白日旗、正巧於1895年的3月16日被以基督徒為主的興中會革命志士所批准使用的


5. 今年的復活節4月1日、基督徒仍循例使用聖經以賽亞書53章5節來慶祝:「上帝的聖子祂為我們受害⋯因祂的鞭傷⋯我們得醫治、因祂的刑罰⋯我們得平安」、輝映已通過的法案535號了!

6. 就在美國於4月1日也慶祝「愚人節」之時,不知「敬天愛民」的中共獨裁政權、一枚與天爭峰的「天宮」衛星、因「意外」正式「墮入」南海的「軍事強佔海域中」、上帝不也已經透過萬象定了是非了!

7. 美國新國務卿龐彼歐弟兄、由川普弟兄選在台灣烈士鄭南榕就義紀念日、也是國家言論自由日的4月7日白宮上任、更是絕無巧合。

其它詳細內容請參考英文報導!

Inside the White House Bible Study group

 

By Owen Amos BBC News, Washington DC      8 April 2018

hare

For the first time in at least 100 years, the US Cabinet has a bible study group. What do they learn? What does Donald Trump make of it? And why aren't women allowed to teach?

Every Wednesday, some of the world's most powerful people meet in a conference room in Washington DC to learn about God.

The location can't be revealed - the Secret Service won't allow it - but the members can.

Vice-President Mike Pence. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Energy Secretary Rick Perry. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The list goes on.

In total, 10 cabinet members are "sponsors" of the group. Not everyone attends every meeting - they are busy people - but they go if they can.

Meetings last between 60 and 90 minutes, and members are free to contact the teacher after-hours. So who is the man leading the United States' most-influential bible study?

Step forward Ralph Drollinger, a seven-foot tall basketball pro turned pastor. Or, as the 63-year-old describes himself: "Just a jock with some bad knees."

 

Drollinger grew up in La Mesa, a suburb of San Diego, California. As a child, he rarely went to church - "Probably half a dozen times," he says - and didn't get far with the Bible.

"I always promised myself I'd read it," he says. "But every time I tried, it didn't make a whole lot of sense to me."

In his last year of high school, after a basketball game, some cheerleaders invited him to bible study. He went, and his world changed.

"It was the first time I really heard the gospel," he says. "So I went home, read through the whole gospel of Matthew that night, and asked Jesus into my heart."

In 1972, Drollinger went to the University of California in Los Angeles on a basketball scholarship. He attended a bible-teaching church and, over the next four years, "fell in love with the scriptures".

After college, he could have played pro basketball - he was picked in the NBA draft three times - but, each time, turned it down.

"I sensed such a passion for ministry that everything paled in comparison," he says.

Instead, he signed for a Christian team called Athletes in Action. They played basketball around the world - 35 countries, he reckons - and preached the gospel at half-time.

"That was kind of perfect for me," he says. "Because I really didn't like basketball - but I liked to preach."

Drollinger did eventually turn pro, signing for the Dallas Mavericks in 1980, but only because he wanted to attend the seminary there. He played six games in the NBA and left after one season.

After retiring from basketball he worked in sports ministries, before turning to politics in 1996. The road to the White House started with failing Christians in California.

In 1996, Drollinger's wife, Danielle, was executive director of a political action committee in California trying to unseat liberals from the state legislature and get Christians elected.

"But she was frustrated," he says. "They would send guys to California's capitol - and she was great at getting them elected - but they would soon lose their Christian moorings."

So they took over the existing ministry in Sacramento, changed the name, and offered weekly bible studies, support, prayer, and one-on-one ministry.

It proved "wildly successful", so they expanded. Capitol Ministries is now in 43 US state capitols, and more than 20 legislatures abroad.

Each class is led by a local pastor, but none is led by a woman. Why not?

"There's no [Biblical] prohibition of female leadership in commerce, there's no prohibition of female leadership in the state, and there's no prohibition of female leadership over children," says Drollinger.

"But there is a prohibition of female leadership in marriage, and female leadership in the church. And those are clear in scripture… it doesn't mean, in an egalitarian sense, that a woman is of lesser importance. It's just that they have different roles."

In 2010, Capitol Ministries arrived in Washington. There was already a ministry called The Fellowship, which runs the National Prayer Breakfast, but Drollinger felt it had "lost its marbles, Biblically".

It was, he says, candy floss Christianity - big, sweet, unsubstantial. By contrast, he wants to offer a "high-protein diet", teaching the bible book-by-book, one verse at a time. In Drollinger's studies, it can take a year to finish one book.

"If you don't have a spiritual coach that's really driving you in the word of God - and driving you toward holiness rather than your own sinful, latent nature, and your own depravity - then you're not going to grow into Christ's likeness," he says.

The Fellowship, he says, believes legislators can do bible study among themselves.

"I say no, technical foul. 'How will they hear without a preacher?' Romans 10:15."

Capitol Ministries began a bible study for representatives in 2010, which now has almost 50 members.

When four of the group were elected to the Senate, they asked for a senators' class, which began in 2015. Last March - two months after Donald Trump took office - the same process led to a group for cabinet members.

"Trump started appointing to his cabinet all the guys that were in our House and Senate bible study," says Drollinger, a trend he attributes to Vice-President Mike Pence, who "knew who those strong believers were".

"Unlike our secular media," Drollinger says, he and others saw the appointees had something in common - they "were strong in Christ".

"So Jeff Sessions, [former health secretary] Tom Price, others, said let's start a ministry, a Cabinet bible study."

Capitol Ministries believes it is the first Cabinet-level bible study for "at least 100 years". There was a group during George W Bush's presidency, but it was for lower-ranking staff members.

President Trump is not a member of Drollinger's group - but he is a Christian, and does get Drollinger's eight-page print-outs most weeks.

"He writes me back notes on my bible studies," says Drollinger.

"He's got this leaky Sharpie felt-tip pen that he writes all capital letters with. 'Way to go Ralph, really like this study, keep it up.' Stuff like that."

 

Drollinger's weekly bible studies are not private, or secret. Anyone can read them online.

 

On same-sex marriage, he writes: "Homosexuality and same-sex ceremonies are illegitimate in God's eyes. His word is repetitive, perspicuous [clearly expressed], and staid on the subject."

 

On capitalism, he writes: "The right to personal property, also known as free enterprise or capitalism, is the governmental economic system supported by scripture. Scripture does not support communism."

 

And on debt, he writes: "It is bad stewardship and downright foolishness for an individual, family, or country to borrow in order to cover expenses that far, far exceed income!"

 

So if politicians should learn from the Bible, should - for example - gay people be put to death? No, says Drollinger - some civil laws from the Old Testament should not apply.

"I think that was for [ancient] Israel, but it's not for the church," he says, adding he doesn't import "the whole kit and caboodle of Old Testament law" like "the clumsy theonomist would".

Drollinger likens himself to a waiter in a restaurant. These lessons aren't his - he is merely serving the word of God, as revealed in the Bible, to self-professed Christians.

"If God is the chef, then I'm just the servant, and I hope the guys like the meal," he says. "But on the way out of the kitchen, I'm not going to alter what's on the plate. So my job is just to be a servant."

And if people don't like the message - or, to put it his way, the meal?

"You have to go talk to the chef [God]. Unless I've altered what's on the plate - which, hopefully in my discipline, I don't."

Drollinger believes the Bible teaches the separation of church and state.

"We have to differentiate," he says. "And unfortunately, a lot of our evangelical religious right advocates have not made this differentiation."

In January, when a New York Times opinion piece described Drollinger and others as "Christian nationalists", he wrote a 1400-word letter to complain. What was his objection?

"It has the idea of tyranny when you take it to its extreme," he says.

"It means that I'm meeting with the Cabinet members clandestinely in order to overthrow the government - in the form that we presently have - for a theocracy. I mean, at the end of the day, that's the accusation, and I have to be strong on that."

But is a bible study for Cabinet members, with political themes, not a merging of church and state?

"I believe in institutional separation, but not influential separation," he says

"No matter what the institution is - the family, commerce, education - it needs the bulwark precepts of the word of God in order to function correctly…

"But the minute I start to amalgamate the church and the state institutionally, then I'm into theocracy."

Drollinger never tells his members how to vote, or which policies to pursue. But he hopes it becomes obvious by teaching them the Bible.

"I will put the blueprint on the engineer's seat on the train," he says. "And it will show you the right tracks to the station.

"But I'm not going to tell you what tracks to take. But you've got to be pretty stupid not to follow the blueprint, because it's there."

Do his students ever disappoint him?

"Oh yeah, I get disappointed a lot when I see immaturity," he says. "I was just talking to one member... his wife hates him. He's been overspending his capital in his marriage by working 14 hours a day on politics.

"That's disappointed me, because if he is divorced, then what kind of credibility does he really have long-term in the House [of Representatives] to make moral judgments?"

And what about their policies?

"When a person obviously knows the Biblical thing to do and votes against what he or she knows what's Biblical."

One Democrat, struggling with her party's support for same-sex marriage, contacted Drollinger for advice. He explained the Bible's teaching, as he saw it.

"The next bible study, she said 'that was really good'. Now she can't necessarily stand publicly on what I just taught her, but it's going on in her heart."

He says he won't tell her how to vote on the issue - voicing opposition to marriage might cost her an election.

"But at the same time, she's going to have to think, what's different between that and a prostitute? A prostitute sells her soul to maintain a salary. Are you as a Christian legislator, growing in Christ, selling your convictions in order to stay making a salary, or have influence?

"I'll never say it that graphically to a member. But you get my idea."

記得很久以前,市長談過這個人,可惜後來又刪掉了(還是我找不到?)

 Isaac Newton發明了微積分(Calculus),成為現代理工學院的必修。也注定了英國引領工業革命與引領世界達二百年的基礎。

跟所有的學術與智慧一樣,牛頓前面有萊布尼茲(Leibniz)與巴斯卡(Pascal)等為其奠基。但上帝待中國人不薄,李善蘭的基礎卻直接來自於神!

他的基礎微分知識來自於西方傳教士!

李善蘭完成了指數對數的微積分,與環積與場積的重大學術成就,並率先完成了李善蘭不等式!

唉.....年輕時當時我就想;上帝待中國人不薄啊!李的成就過三十年歐洲才追上!但是甚麼制度與文化讓李善蘭飄零一生? 而中國沒有得到像 後Isaac Newton英國的蓬勃發展?


我浩歎了



看了天恩客的大作,啟發良多

現代文明中國缺席 獨裁禍根種下劣變 (三論)

什麼是現代文明、落後者如中國、肯定避此議題、另外包裝!所以答案在中國及中國文化圈肯定找不到。

日本、在秦朝仍是部落無文字民族、故在漢唐派出使者學子來長安(西安)學習中國文明!日本的皇帝皇族只有一個想法、虛心學習爾!

反觀中國皇帝呢?天下第一上國、天下第一天子!朕即天下!

一個有權無責的皇帝、一個靠皇帝提拔的科擧「太監文官」制度、歷史只能書皇帝的美化史、能成嗎?

一個搞笑的中國歷史?皇帝大到能封神、並留下封神榜?難怪印度已滅亡拜拜的佛教、中國大興!世界已滅亡的共產主義、中共仍大尊!

西元1517年、德國神父馬丁路德隻身對抗歐洲神權天主教及教皇、一生寫了八千篇文章、駡教皇是娼妓等、開始政教分離運動!

1600年英國人牛頓發導微積分(Calculus)。1620年五月花航向蠻荒美洲、1776年美洲獨立、其獨立宣言發展成、現代文明中不可或缺的「公義平等憲法」、影響之後的法國大革命,進而締造全球的現代文明!

對人權的無條件尊重、帶出西方人源源不絕的創造力:

現代文明:馬桶、空調、汽車、發動機、鐵売船、地鉄、高鉄、高速公路、電氣、電網、通訊、手機、無線網路,大學教育、運動賽例籃球棒球、公眾公司、証券市場、期貨市場、聯合國、WTO;中國皇帝全無貢獻。

老天仍有好生之德、漢人最早進入「熟食文化」、飲食健康死亡率較低、進帶出世界最大族群。GDP隨便加總、都有個樣子!這肯定不是中國皇帝的功勞!

有檢查了一下、北韓的軍服、全用暗色的皮帶、皮扣露兩齒。

再看一下也明白、美國是用聯合國旗及美國國旗、迎接陣亡將士返國的。並由軍牧完成召魂安息禱告的。

美國白宮2018年7月26日晚間說,美國空軍一架C-17運輸機在取回一批韓戰美軍官兵遺體後,已飛離北韓。英國廣播公司(BBC)網站報導,那架飛機已前往南韓烏山美軍基地。

27日正是朝鮮停戰協定簽署65周年紀念日,韓戰曾造成美軍數萬人死亡,另外中國及南北韓各有60萬官兵及逾100萬平民喪生。

白宮聲明中說,美軍C-17運輸機今天早上從南韓烏山空軍基地起飛,降落在北韓東岸的元山市。一名美國官員告訴美國有線電視新聞網(CNN),北韓交出的是第一批裝有55具美軍遺體的容器。美方未來可能需要數月時間,進行詳細DNA分析,才能決定那些官兵的確切身份。

CNN記者說,在C-17運輸機離開北韓前,每個裝遺體的容器都被打開拍照。這架運輸機抵達南韓烏山空軍基地後,將有鑑識專家進行遺體評估,且將檢視軍服、身分標識或文件,這項工作可能費時5天。

CNN說,北韓預定在未來兩周到三周內,將北韓保管的約200具韓戰美軍遺體交還美方,但此時程也可能變動,因為過去北韓對此事多次拖延。

CNN指出,北韓交還韓戰美軍遺體,是美國總統川普與北韓領導人金正恩新加坡峰會的協議事項之一,對履行協議而言至關重要。
