* 成為東正教徒 Becoming Orthodox

成為東正教徒是珍貴的

我很驚訝地知道有些人設法讓他人皈依基督教。他們說得很容易,他們不是真的在乎上帝,只是設法讓入加入他們的小組。他們讓人恐懼,以地獄恐嚇非信徒,或以得救來吸引,但卻從沒加以解釋,更重要的是得救之後的下一個步驟是什麼他們也無法說明。好吧,就算你已經得救了。然後呢?
東正教會的教導,加入神愛的家庭。神愛一切不論是好與惡。如果你是壞人,在上帝身體中已先為你邪惡行為受苦,祂可以帶來生命的景況,所以你可以依賴及改變或受到懲罰。但最重要的是上帝的愛,不僅是情感上的而是真實,在聖餐禮中。
現在人們談戀愛時彼此不交談不思考。他們不知道什麼是愛情。他們關心錢,要有保障,權力。但是如果失去愛,只關心這些就是真正的活在地獄。
以吸引的方式對東正教來說實在不容易。我們不希望勸誘人改變宗教,我們尊重非信徒。我們不曾說如果對方非東正教徒就會下地獄,神將會審判每一個人,我們為世上一切祈求。
我們不會設計各種活動來吸引人入教,再逐步地控制他們,引導他們加入小組,這將違背正教的教導。
唯有不斷地為你們所有人祈求,我們舉行聖禮儀,讓耶穌的聖體臨在台灣這片土地上,他的愛及至所有的人,我們誠實的對你們述說我們所做的及教導的。我們雖然成長地非常緩慢,卻是長長久久的。
我們希望您理解並看到我們虔誠和尊敬的態度,而我們祈求與你有更多的對話。歡迎提問,亦可表達你的反對意見或相關問題。

It is precious to be orthodox
I was surprised to know how some people try to convert others to Christianity. They speak so simplistically, they do not really care about God but they call them to join to a group. They use the fear -threatening by hell to unbelievers, – or salvation but without explain from what, and most important they do not say what is the next step after salvation. OK, you are saved. then what?
The orthodox church says, join to the loving family of god. God loves all no matter good or bad. If you are bad, god is suffering first your evil acts in his body, and he can bring the life situation so you can depend and change or be punished. But The most important thing is the love of God, not only emotional but real, in the holy communion.
People nowadays do not speak or think of love. They do not know what it is. they care for money, security, power. But without love all those are the real hell.
It is not easy for the orthodox church to attract people. We do not want to proselytize people, we respect them. We do not say that they will go to hell if they are not Orthodox, God will judge everyone, we pray for all.
We cannot organize activities to attract the people in order gradually to control them, and to guide them to our group, it would be against our teachings.
Only we pray for everyone of you, we do the liturgy, to bring the body of Jesus in the land of Taiwan, and his love to all people, and honestly we say to you what we do and teach. We grow very slow but in the long term.
We hope you understand and see our humble and respectable way, and we pray to be in more dialogue with you. Feel free to ask, to express your objections or questions.
