It is well (the story behind the famous hymn) performed by Colin Battersby



1. When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

o Refrain:

It is well, with my soul,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

The Gospel Herald 基督日報 - 同性戀主義能以「不得已」當擋箭牌嗎?


全威 / 基督日報記者 
201309231245 (PST)

同性戀主義有時拿「身不由已」的理由強化自己的性價值觀。他們主張,「不得已」的事無對錯可言,同性戀是不得已的,所以同性戀主義不該被批判。但基督徒學者柯志明指其似是而非之論。

St. Francis’ Love of Nature: The Secret which Cannot be Understood by Modern Atheistic Ecoists

St. Francis’ Love of Nature
The Secret which Cannot be Understood by 
Modern Atheistic Ecoists


Dr. Immanuel Chih-Ming Ke
柯志明

St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) was a man of mystery. He was a fanatical follower of Jesus Christ, so he couldn’t be easily understood by modern ecoists. Perhaps, modern people can slightly conjecture what the spiritual intentions of St. Francis might have been only by humming the song, “The prayer of St. Francis”[1]. It was written by later generations, but this is quite insufficient to achieve an understanding of Francis’ fanatical enthusiasm, which is beyond our simple understanding, of his will to follow Jesus Christ. Many modern ecoists choose to like him and then to praise him highly. They also choose to separate him from the Christian faith (or orthodox Christian faith); on the one hand, he is exalted to be the patron saint of the environment and of animals, and on the other hand, through him, Christian faith may be criticized because it turns out to be an extremely anthropocentric religion that tramples on nature. However, and unfortunately, Francis would inversely criticize these modern ecoists for their misunderstanding of him, and for their whole misunderstanding of the tenets of Christian faith; most likely, he would declare that they are actually extreme anthropocentricists on their own account and that the root of ecological crisis is hidden in these atheistic modernists’ way of thought and deed.

The Gospel Herald 基督日報 - 基督徒學者柯志明:如何看待同性戀除病化?

201309121131

同性戀主義者以心理學將同性戀去病化為理由,主張同性戀不是疾病,而是正常的。但基督徒學者柯志明反駁此說欠嚴謹,充滿著政治色彩。

1973年,美國精神醫學會將同性戀自《心理異常之診療與統計手冊》中刪除;1992年,聯合國世界衛生組織(WHO)編定之《國際疾病分類》刪除同性戀。

The Gospel Herald 基督日報 - 性與手類比? 學者駁同性戀主義左撇子論


田偉 / 基督日報記者
201309060938 (PST)

同性戀主義者善拿「左撇子論證」為自己撐腰,鼓吹「同性戀不過是異性戀之外另一種戀情的表現,好比有人慣用右手,有人慣用左手,兩者都合乎自然,只是方式不同。」這種類比恰當嗎?有基督徒學者撰文反駁。

台灣大學哲學系副教授柯志明曾發表文章分析同性戀主義的「左撇子論證」之謬誤,抨其完全說不通,拿手與性相提並論更是荒唐。
