圣经教义 – 有关的重要信仰
作者： 马可. 坎布朗 神学博士 Mark G. Cambron, D.D.
Paul distinguished between the simplicities of the Word and its more profound truths. When writing to the Corinthians he said, “I have fed you with milk, and not with meat” (I Cor. 3:2).Certainly, newborn babes in Christ thrive on the sincere milk of the Word. With spiritual development, however, the meat of Scripture is masticated.
One wonders whether the prevalent carnality among religious people would have been prevented if only they had consistently listened to doctrinal preaching in their churches. We fear that much of the present-day preaching is not only simple but superficial. The surface of the Bible is skimmed, but its depths are ignored.
How grateful to the Lord we are for fundamental seminaries and Bible institutes all over the land, in which young people are taught to handle the great doctrines of the Word! The Tennessee Temple Bible School is one of the outstanding training schools of this kind in the land, and is fortunate in having a gifted teacher like Dr. Mark G. Cambron as its Dean. Dr. Cambron’s monumental work, Bible Doctrines, reveals how he has launched out into the deep of God’s Word, and is able to present, in a clear and concise manner, those glorious doctrines of which God in Christ is Author, Matter and End.
我为世界各地的基础神道院与圣经机构向主感恩，有很多年轻人在裡面受教`学习神所赐的宝贵教义，按着正意分解神的道！田纳西Temple圣经学校是这些圣经学院裡的其中一所教育学院。格外的蒙恩又有 马可. 坎布朗 博士 （Dr. Mark G Cambron） 担任教务长。 坎布朗博士的巨作，圣经教义，显示出他在神的话语-圣经裡花了如此多的功夫深耕钻研，并且能够以精准清楚的方式，表达这些榮耀的教义，呈现这荣耀真理的作者-在基督裡显现的神，解说这些重要信仰与末世的终了结局。
We bespeak for Bible Doctrines a wide circulation among pastors, students and Christian workers in this and other lands!

“God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you” (Rom. 6:17). “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (II Tim. 3:16,17).
“感谢神，因为你们从前虽然作罪的奴仆，现今却从心里顺服了所传给你们道理的模范”。(罗马书6:17)。 “ 整本圣经都是神所默示的，于教训，督责，使人归正，教导人学义，都是有益的。叫属神的人得以完全，预备行各样的善事。 ” (提摩太后书3:16-17)
The crying need of the Church today is the knowledge of the Word of God. The Church is cold, indifferent to the one purpose for which God has left it here — and that purpose is to win the lost to Christ. But it seems that some of God’s choicest leaders are falling into the different isms of today; the cause: the lack of the knowledge of the doctrines of God’s Word. God’s children are backsliding into sin; the cause: the lack of the knowledge of the doctrines of the Word of God. Christians must feed upon the Word of God to grow thereby. Thus, the Truth of God will act upon Christian lives and conduct. The fact that man will not heed sound doctrine is a sign of the times — a sign that Christ is soon coming. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (I Tim. 4:1).
当今教会所迫切需要的是神的话语-圣经的知识。教会冷漠`对于神留下教会在地上这裡的这一个目的漠不关心 – 那目的就是去为主基督赢回失丧的灵魂。然而，似乎神所拣选的一些教会领袖们正跌向当今各种不同的主义裡去;其原因：对神的话语-圣经教义知识的缺乏。同时，神的儿女们正仰跌滑跤陷入罪裡;那原因：也是缺乏神的话语-圣经教义的知识缺乏。基督徒必须在神的话语上得喂养，因而得以成长。这样，神的真理就会在基督徒的生命上`在基督徒的为人处世上施行出来。人们不听从纯正的圣经教义这事实是一个时候的征兆 – 基督不久就要来的兆头。（提摩太后书4:1） “圣灵明说，在后来的时候，必有人离弃真道，听从那引诱人的邪灵，和鬼魔的道理。”。
There is not a field of service anywhere but which demands of its pastors and ministers the right dividing of the Word of Truth. Souls are saved, yet these souls depend upon the Word for growth. The Truth will shape them, and error will misshape them. There is a vast difference between a person holding the Truth, and the Truth holding the person. Therefore, in the study of the doctrines of the Scripture, may the student pray that not only shall he know the doctrines, but that they shall become a reality to his soul and spirit.
