从圣母院的大火说说教堂的作用

(2021-10-13 19:03:14) 下一个

作为文化上的瑰宝,艺术里的珍品,巴黎圣母院被大火烧坏了,谓之惋惜。据维基百科,失火点位于教堂阁楼处,大火导致其尖顶坍塌,中后部的木质屋顶完全被烧毁,而其石制的拱顶大部分得以保存。作为 “法国和欧洲文化的一个象征”, 在得以修复之前,据说不再对游客们开放,因此这会让未来的很多游客不禁失望。

对于基督徒而言,由于神不住人手所造的殿,所以从主的福音角度上说,巴黎圣母院与普通的教堂一样: 作用就是传扬耶稣基督的福音,主的信徒们通过在教堂听道,聚会和赞美而巩固福音。其实凡具备这些功能的地方都可称之为教堂,比如家庭教会。圣经里说,神不住在教会的建筑物里,因为他不住人手所造的殿,而是住在他自己亲手所造的殿。人的身体就是神亲手所造的,因此,我们的身体才是神真正的殿,因为神的圣灵住在我们的心上。无论教堂多么华丽,无非是悦人的眼目和展示人的建筑能力(即人的荣耀)而已。

说到敬拜,基督徒需要用圣灵和真理来敬拜,而非必须用教堂来敬拜。圣灵住在我们心里,而真理是耶稣。因此,耶稣曾说,拜父既不在这山上,也不在耶路撒冷(耶路撒冷有豪华的圣殿)。敬拜用圣灵和耶稣足以,不论是在教堂还是不在教堂!

下面是相关经文。
徒7:48 其实至高者并不住人手所造的,就如先知所言。
However, the Most High doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, as the prophet says,

徒17:24 创造宇宙和其中万物的神、既是天地的主、就不住人手所造的殿.
The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands,

林前3:16 岂不知你们是神的殿、神的灵住在你们里头么?
Don't you know that you are a temple of God, and that God's Spirit lives in you?

林前3:17 若有人毁坏神的殿、神必要毁坏那人.因为神的殿是圣的、这殿就是你们。
If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for God's temple is holy, which you are.


林前6:19 岂不知你们的身子就是圣灵的殿么.这圣灵是从神而来、住在你们里头的.并且你们不是自己的人.
Or don't you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own,

弗2:22 你们也靠他同被建造成为神借着圣灵居住的所在。
in whom you also are built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

约4:21 耶稣说、妇人、你当信我、时候将到、你们拜父、也不在这山上、也不在耶路撒冷。
Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, will you worship the Father.
约4:23 时候将到、如今就是了、那真正拜父的、要用心灵和诚实拜他、因为父要这样的人拜他。
But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.
约4:24 神是个灵.〔或无个字〕所以拜他的、必须用心灵和诚实拜他。
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

罗8:9 如果神的灵住在你们心里、你们就不属肉体、乃属圣灵了.人若没有基督的灵、就不是属基督的。
But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.

约14:6 耶稣说、我就是道路、真理、生命.若不借着我、没有人能到父那里去。
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.
