前言Introduction:
最近中日两国的关系因钓鱼岛争端而达到二战以来最紧张程度。中国各地出现大规模反日游行,甚至打砸抢烧日本商品、车辆、店铺的行为。但有人也对这些仇恨和极端行为提出反对,包括引用塞缪尔约翰逊的名言“爱国主义是恶棍的最后避难所”。作为基督徒我们有必要思想圣经是如何看爱国主义的。~
Recently,
the relation between China and Japan is of highest tension since WWII
due to Diaoyu Island. There were many anti-Japan protests. Some
people were robbing and destroying Japan related shops, vehicles,
etc. Some others criticized such hatred and extreme behaviors,
quoting the famous saying of Samuel Johnson
,
Patriotism
is the last refuge of a scoundrel
.”
As Christians, we need to learn what does the Bible teach about
Patriotism.

I.
正确的爱国符合圣经
Loving
One’s Country the Right Way is Biblical


热爱本国人民


保卫本国领土


抵挡本国敌人


承认本国罪恶

II.
错误的爱国不合圣经
Patriotism
the Wrong Way is Unbiblical


国家的定义,爱国主义的定义


爱国主义与民族主义。


爱国、爱人民、爱政府与爱政党。


先知尼希米是爱国还是卖国?

III.
基督徒的身份与责任
Christians’
Status and Responsibility


地上的国民:保家卫国


天上的国民:
拯救灵魂


恨罪恶,爱罪人;反击凶暴,宽恕仇敌

結論与应用
Conclusion
and Application:

1.
基督徒为何可以参军、上战场、消灭敌人?什么情况下、那些事是不可以爱国名义做的?

2.
基督徒的“双重国籍”之间在什么情况下可能出现张力?如何面对?

3.
默想并背诵腓立比书3:20我们却是天上的国民。并且等候救主,就是主耶稣基督,从天上降临~
Meditate on and Memorize Philippians 3:20:

 
But
our citizenship
 is
in heaven.
 And
we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ
