聖經教義 – 有關的重要信仰
                  作者: 馬可. 坎布朗 ,神學博士   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.

我為世界各地的基礎神道院與聖經機構向主感恩,有很多年輕人在裡面受教`學習神所賜的寶貴教義,按著正意分解神的道!田納西Temple聖經學校是這些聖經學院裡的其中一所教育學院。格外的蒙恩又有馬可. 坎布朗 博士 (Dr. Mark G Cambron) 擔任教務長。  坎布朗博士的大著作,聖經教義,顯示出他在神的話語-聖經裡花了如此多的功夫深耕鉆研,並且能夠以精準清楚的方式,表達這些榮耀的教義,呈現這榮耀真理的作者-在基督裡顯現的神,解說這些重要信仰與末世的終了結局。

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, throughly furnished unto all good works” (II Tim. 3:16,17).

“感謝神,因為你們從前雖然作罪的奴仆,現今卻從心裏順服了所傳給你們道理的模範”(羅馬書6:17) 。 “ 整本聖經都是神所默示的,於教訓,督責,使人歸正,教導人學義,都是有益的。叫屬神的人得以完全,預備行各樣的善事 ” (提摩太後書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).

當今教會所迫切需要的是神的話語-聖經的知識。教會冷漠`對於神留下教會在地上這裡的這一個目的漠不關心 – 那目的就是去為主基督贏回失喪的靈魂。然而,似乎神所揀選的一些教會領袖們正跌向當今各種不同的主義裡去;其原因:對神的話語-聖經教義知識的缺乏。同時,神的兒女們正仰跌滑跤陷入罪裡;那原因:也是缺乏神的話語-聖經教義的知識缺乏。基督徒必須在神的話語上得餵養,因而得以成長。這樣,神的真理就會在基督徒的生命上`在基督徒的為人處世上施行出來。人們不聽從純正的聖經教義這事實是一個時候的征兆 – 基督不久就要來的兆頭。(提摩太後書4:1) “聖靈明說,在後來的時候,必有人離棄真道,聽從那引誘人的邪靈,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.
