June 26 of 2015, was a historical day for USA as well as ministries like PLUC. We lost another nation to same sex marriage in the name of human rights. In fact this did not come as a surprise for us as we have been praying for Lord’s mercy upon USA many years ago. That night I browsed through my facebook and was overwhelmed with 2 emotions.

Firstly was anger. I was so angry with how some Christians responded so judgmentally though we do not agree with same sex marriage. Yet what right do we have to be so judgmental till cursing them to death. Then at other end, I was so sad when I saw many Christians began to change their facebook profile photo into the “Rainbow” color. They were celebrating “Love wins” especially the post-modernism generation. Either they were plain naïve or are liberal in their stand.

Have you counted the number of colors in rainbow? There are 7 and not 6. The “Rainbow” color that adorned your facebook profile photo has 6 only and it represent LGBTIQ pride symbol. The meaning of red carries a message that sexual right indeed is human right (http://taiwanfamily.com/). The churches in Malaysia have rooms to educate and build a generation that pursue holiness and not embrace lies that have become truth. How can this be accomplished? It can be accomplished by creating awareness of this crisis that we are facing and not be in denial. Churches can at least start with “What is biblical sexuality?

3 September 2016 marks PLUC 15 years in journeying with those who struggle with their gender. We will continue to raise the bar in creating awareness for churches and believers who still hold on to His standard of marriage and family. He made us in His image, male and female He created us (Genesis 1:27). God did not make a mistake in creating us to be more like Him. Ultimately that is our goal: To be more like Him. In conjunction with our 15 years of thanksgiving, we will be organizing talks on helping churches and believers of Christ to understand what gender identity confusion is all about. Please come and celebrate together with us on 3 September 2016.

The Lord is merciful and gracious and His desire is to see the hurting and marginalized return to the Father’s heart. He is waiting for all the prodigals …. He loves them and we should too. I am praying for more workers in this harvest field. Each time I meet them, my heart cries for workers as the harvest is plentiful. If the Lord has place in your heart a burden for this group of people, drop by for a cuppa and let us chat.

Blessed New Year and may the Lord minister to your needs.

2015年6月26日,对美国和与“基督里得自由”(PLUC)相同性质的事工机构来说,是历史性的一天,因为世界又多了一个以维护人权之名而认同“同性婚姻”的国家。面对这项重大改变,我们一
点都不感到意外。过去几年来,我们一直都求神怜悯美国这片土地。当晚,当我在游览面子书时,有两种情绪涌上心头。

一是愤怒,我看见一些基督徒批判式的回应而令我感到生气,究竟我们有什么资格去定一个人的罪,甚至诅咒他们致死呢?另一方面,我也因着一些基督徒把面子书上的个人图像改为“彩虹”的背景而感到难过。他们打着欢庆“真爱无敌”的旗号,尤其是后现代主义思维的青年。或许他们不了解“彩虹”背后的意义,抑或他们只是在表明他们的立场。

你是否曾数算过彩虹的颜色种类?实际上,彩虹有7种颜色而非6种。面子书图像上的“彩虹”却只有6种,而这6种颜色即是同志的符号象征。当中的红色所要带出来的信息是性权,也就是人权。(http://taiwanfamily.com/) 马来西亚的教会尚有许多的空间来教导和建立信徒们追求圣洁的世代,而非包容和接受一些被扭曲的真理。教会要如何实现呢?就是唤起信徒对这个敏感议题的醒觉与认识,而非否定它的存在。教会可以从“什么是合乎圣经的性?”来着手处理。

2016年9月3日将见证“基督里得自由”(PLUC)陪伴性别困扰挣扎者的旅程已走过15年。我们会继续并积极地推广这方面的醒觉,尤其是持守上帝对婚姻与家庭准则的教会和众弟兄姐妹。上帝按着自己的形象造人,乃是照着祂的形象造男造女(创1:27)。上帝按祂的形象造人绝对无差错,最终目的乃是要我们更像祂。

在迈入这感恩的15周年,我们将举办一场讲座会,协助教会和弟兄姐妹更加了解有关性别困扰的议题。欢迎前来与我们一同欢庆!

上帝是满有怜悯与恩典的,祂渴望看见那些受伤和被边缘化的群体回到祂的怀抱,祂正等待着所有的浪子。祂爱他们,我们也应该要爱他们。我祷告禾场上兴起更多的工人,每一次的面谈都让我看见工人的需要,因为要收割的庄稼很多。如果上帝让您对这些群体有负担,欢迎您前来和我喝杯茶聊聊。

新年蒙恩,愿上帝祝福您所需的。
