Communists Put Christians To Shame (Chinese/English)

Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers,[by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

罗马书 12: 1-2 因此,弟兄们,我恳求你们,借着上帝的怜悯,把你们的身体献上,作为活祭,圣洁,为上帝所悦纳,这就是你们的属灵崇拜。〔b〕 2 不要效法这个世界,〔c〕要因心意的更新而改变,使你们通过试炼,辨别什么是上帝的旨意,什么是良善的、可悦纳的、完美的。[四]

We had a lady who came to church quite infrequently. She moved out of Nanjing, and her son “E” came with her to church, and I shared with him.

我们中有位女士极少去教堂,她搬出了南京,于是她的儿子和她去教堂,我与他一起交流。

He is now a member of CCP “Young Pioneers…”

他现在是共产党“青年先锋队员“。

This is what he wrote on one of his WeChat groups:

以下是他在他的一个微信群里所写的:

I am a member of the Chinese YP I swear under the banner of the team. I love the CCP, love the Motherland, love the people, study hard, exercise well, prepare, contribute to the cause of the CCP.

我是中国青年先锋队员,我在队旗下宣誓,热爱党,热爱祖国,爱人民,努力学习,好好锻炼,时刻准备着为党奉献。

This has had a profound effect on me, as there are millions of young pioneers… millions of CCP members trapped in this.

这件事对我有着深刻影响,因为这里有数以百万的青年团员,以及众多共产党员。

We have heard of many thousands of Muslim leaders who have come to Christ, but who prays for these young people? Please pray for the millions of CCP members and the young pioneers.

我们曾听说成千上万的穆斯林领袖来到基督面前,但有谁为这些年轻人祈祷吗?请为这众多党员和青年团员祈祷吧。

This is a special appeal to pray for them.

为他们祈祷有特别的吸引力。

How is God going to work? He speaks sometimes through supernatural means such as dreams and visions, but He tells us to preach the Gospel and pray. Please pray earnestly and fervently.

神是如何工作的?他有时通过超自然方式讲话,诸如梦和异象,但他要我们传扬福音并祈祷。请诚恳而热烈地祷告吧。

Finally, why can’t we show as Christians the same commitment to the cause of Christ?

最后,我们为何不能展示作为基督徒,因基督的原因而做出相同承诺呢?

Let me re-write this for you:

让我为你重新讲述一遍:

I am a member of the Body of Christ  – Scripture

我是基督身体的一部分-经文

I will serve my fellow brothers and sisters in selfless and humbles service – JOHN 13:1-17

我将以无私谦卑服务于我的弟兄姐妹们。约翰福音13:1-17

I love my fellow brothers and sisters- 1 JOHN 4:19-21

我爱我的弟兄姐妹们-约翰一书4:19-21

I love my heavenly home – Scripture

我爱我天上的家-经文

I love the world with the compassion of christ – Scripture

我用基督的怜悯爱这世界-经文

I will study and search the scriptures to be a workman approved of God – 2 TIMOTHY 2:15 AND 3:16-4:2

我将学习研究圣经,成为神认可的事工-提摩太后书2:15和3:16 4:2

I will keep my body my body under subjection- 1 COR 9:24-27

我将使我的身体顺服-哥林多前书9:24-27

I will prepare well by spending much time with God – Scripture

我将准备好与神更多时间相处-经文

I will seek every day to make a unique contribution to the Kingdom of God – Scripture

我将寻求每一天为神的国度做独特的贡献-经文

My question is: If people who are trapped in an ideology that is false and a false religion that gives them no hope, and show such devotion it, then why can’t I/we as Christians show true devotion to the One who bought us be His own precious blood and saved us from sin, death and hell?

我的问题是:如果人们陷入错误的意识形态以及毫无希望的错误宗教,并为此敬拜,那么我/我们作为基督徒,为何不能向那以珍贵宝血买了我们,并救赎我们脱离罪,死亡和地狱的那位表达真实的敬拜呢?

They spend every penny on spreading their false religion, every hour seeking new converts, and every breath telling people a lie!

他们花每一分钱传扬他们的错误宗教,每个小时寻求新的转变,每次呼吸都在讲述谎言!

I remember years ago; I visited my brother in Canada. He took me to see my favorite ice hockey team, the Ottawa Senators, play their big rivals the Toronto Maple Leaf’s. I sat next to a guy, a leaf’s fan, who had travelled many miles to be there; he had sacrificed his time and money just to see his team play. But will we sacrifice anything; Wednesday nights if it’s raining, will we go to prayer meetings or if it’s raining on a Sunday morning, will we skip church?

我记得多年前拜访加拿大的兄长,他带我看最喜欢的冰球队,渥太华参议员队,对阵他们的主要竞争对手,多伦多枫叶队。我坐在一个伙计旁边,他是枫叶队球迷,旅行许多英里来到那里;他牺牲了时间和金钱只为看他的球队比赛。我们也会牺牲任何事吗?周四晚间如果下雨我们会参加祷告聚会吗?或周日早晨下雨,我们会不去教堂吗?

We sit there and do nothing; maybe we do a little. If we showed half of the commitment of the Mormons, Muslims and even this young man, then maybe the Gospel would have reached many more than it has.

我们坐在那里无所事事;也许我们做了那么一丁点事,如果我们表现出有摩门教徒,穆斯林们甚至这个年轻人一半的承诺,福音也许就会比目前传给更多人。

We need a subtle kick in the pants. Me included! We do just enough to get by.

我们需要不露声色的下点狠功夫,包括我,需要做足够多…来获得。

Some Christians can’t read 4 verses; we feed on scraps and expect to be fed by our pastors. We are not infants! We are adults. Adults feed themselves. Some of you reading this, have:

一些基督徒不能读4节经文,我们吃着残羹剩饭,期待着被牧师牧养,我们不是婴儿!我们是成年人,成年人自给自足。你们中一些人读过这个:

Never read through the Bible in a year.

从不曾在一年内通读圣经。

Never spent any more than two minutes in prayer.

从不曾在祷告中花费超过2分钟

Never shared the Gospel one to one.

从不曾一对一分享福音。

Never stayed still and listened to God for any more than 2 minutes.

从不曾安静待着聆听神超过2分钟。

This young man will do everything to extend the role of the CCP. He will go to any lengths; he will give all his money, all his time, and all his effort!

这个年轻人会做任何事来扩展共产党的职能。他会不择手段,他会奉献所有金钱,时间和他的努力!

What do we give?

我们奉献了什么?

Sunday morning or if pushed, Wednesday nights.

周日早晨或者如果有人催的话,周四晚间…

Hit a nerve yet?  Good!

触到痛处了吗…好!

Why then aren’t the pastors screaming a warning to their people?

为什么牧师们不对他们的人大声警告?

WAKE UP!!

醒来吧!

Every prophet in the OT sought to tell the people of Israel what?

旧约里的每个先知都在试图告诉以色列人民什么呢?

WAKE UP!!

醒来吧!

The Christian life is a battle zone. It is filled with daily battles, persecution, and fighting our own flesh.

基督徒生活是一个奋斗领域。它每天都充满斗争,迫害,以及与肉体的争斗。

The Christian doesn’t belong here on Earth; we are strangers and pilgrims. We have a home, and we belong there. When we identify with our Saviour, the world will hate us. it hated Him and will hate us. He made that clear.

基督徒不属于这个地球,我们是互不相识者和朝圣者。我们有家,我们属于那里。当我们确认了我们的救主,世界都会恨我们。世界恨他,也会恨我们。因他使一切清晰可知。

Life is all about Him! Jesus is our life, Jesus is our love, Jesus is our Lord!

生命关乎他!耶稣是我们的生命,耶稣是我们的爱,耶稣是我们的主!

It’s time to show the world that Jesus lives in us.

是时候向世界展示耶稣活在我们之中了。

Penn Gillete is an atheist who said:

Penn Gillete是一个无神论者,他说道:

“If you truly believe that people are going to hell and you don’t tell them, how much do you have to hate them not to tell them?”

如果你真的相信人会下地狱,并且不告诉他们,你有多恨他们才不会告诉他们?

Let me say:

而我说:

If you won’t sacrifice for Christ, if you won’t obey Christ’s commands, if you won’t read His Word, if you won’t spend time with God in prayer,

如果你不为基督牺牲,如果你不遵守基督的诫命,如果你不读他的话语,如果你不在祷告中花时间与神一起,

Then you have a serious problem my friend!

那么你有严重问题了我的朋友!

The book of 1 John has a series of questions; look at that book and test yourself to see if you are in the faith – 2 Cor 13:5.

约翰一书有一系列问题;看看那页书检验你自己是否在信心中-哥林多后书13:5

Keith Green, my dear brother, once said this in one of his songs:

吉思格林,我亲爱的哥哥,在他的一首歌中曾经写道:

“Jesus rose from the dead, and you won’t get out of bed.”

“耶稣从死中复活了,而你却没起床”

I go back to what that young man said at the start. If you can’t or won’t match his devotion, don’t waste God’s time. If he is so devoted to his ideology, why can’t we be as devoted to Christ?

返回到那个年轻人起初所说。如果你不能或不会和他的奉献相比,不要浪费神的时间。如果他奉献给他的意识形态,我们为何不能奉献给基督?

It doesn’t matter how long you have gone to church, what matters is:

不管你多久去一次教堂都没关系,重要的是:

Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”

耶稣说,“如果你爱我,你就会遵守我的诫命”
