王国式的文化、性、生命的神圣性与慈悲

敬拜、工作与话语——基督第一的文化

推荐全球最大网赌正规平台欢迎您(PBA), 我们相信所有的人都是按照神的形象造的(创世记1:26-27)。. This reality gives every human being intrinsic value and also compels us to treat each person with dignity, respect, kindness, understanding, love, 并且渴望看见他们认识神,成就神所赐给他们的旨意. 我们的校训是“启迪思想、丰富灵魂、伸出双手”。. This is beautifully lived out through the combined practices of Worship—the practice of honoring God with who we are and everything that we do, Workship—a distinctive community service program that responds to human needs with Christ‐like action in the community and the world, 语言——培养我们明智地使用语言来启迪他人的实践, 包括那些我们可能不同意的人, 作为一种崇拜形式. 上帝的形象也巩固了我们对伦理和道德的看法. That we are made in the image of God makes us eager to obey God and to live our lives according to His commands.

我们对人类性行为的看法

推荐全球最大网赌正规平台欢迎您肯定了圣经对人格的理解, sexuality, gender, 和基督教婚姻. 我们相信基督教的婚姻是一男一女之间的婚姻. 性是美妙的, God‐given gift explicitly intended for the marital relationship between a biological male and female (1 Corinthians 7:2-5) and gender follows biology. The physical and emotional intimacy of sex is designed beautifully and specifically to unite a couple living in a loving marital, lifelong commitment to each other (Genesis 2:24‐25; Matthew 19:5‐6). In Scripture, we learn God’s creational design and intent for marriage involves three chief goods: (1) a permanent bond and covenant learned by a lifelong commitment (Genesis 2:24-35; Matthew 19:5-6), (2) procreation and the gift of children (Genesis 1:28; Psalm 127:3), (3)和婚姻作为福音的活标记-基督对他的新娘的爱, the Church (Ephesians 5:22-33; Revelation 19:7-9). The covenant of marriage between a man and woman is a blessing from God and uniquely expresses these gifts. Sexual relations outside of marriage are strictly forbidden (Exodus 20:14; Matthew 5:27‐28; 1 Corinthians 7:6-11, 25-35).

Likewise, the vocation of celibacy is a gift which truly expresses male and female identities in a unique and complementary way. Celibacy is not mere inactivity, rather it is active faithfulness to God (1 Corinthians 7:6-35). 婚姻和独身都是上帝的安排.

淫乱, 包括通奸, adultery, 同性恋行为, is prohibited in Scripture (Romans 1:26‐28; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8; Matthew 5:28) because our bodies are “a temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:13‐20). In addition, 任何使用或涉及色情材料的行为都是有罪的,在PBA是被禁止的, 就像所有形式的性虐待一样, exploitation, and harassment (1 Corinthians 6:9‐10; 1 Thessalonians 4:6; 1 Timothy 1:9‐10). PBA期望他们的学生, faculty, and staff will neither engage in nor promote views of sexuality or gender expression that contradicts biblical standards (Romans 1:21‐27; 1 Corinthians 6:9‐10; Genesis 2:24; Ephesians 5:31). PBA也期望我们的学生, faculty, and staff will extend compassion and sensitivity to all since all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). 我们知道所有的罪都可以得到救赎和宽恕(以弗所书1:7)。. 我们承诺在恩典和真理中互相支持和学习, 尊重彼此,同时也尊重上帝对性和婚姻的设计. (提摩太前书1:9).

我们对生命神圣性的看法

PBA’s devotion to the sanctity of human life is informed by the same distinctives that shape all of its other commitments: love for God, 彼此相爱, 耶稣的榜样, 以及对圣经真理的热爱. This leads us to the understanding that life begins at conception and is precious to God from the moment of conception (Psalm 71:6; 139:13‐15; Luke 1:15) to our last breath on earth. 所有的人都是照着神的形象造的,是可畏而奇妙的(诗篇139:14). 未出生的孩子, 就像我们社会中最脆弱的人一样, 值得我们尽最大努力保护他们从受孕到出生. We support those who sacrifice much to carry their unborn baby to term and seek to be an encouragement to them.
