牧師浏覽境外疫情新聞 被控“煽顛罪”面臨坐牢

湖南省慈利縣一家庭教會主任牧師趙懷國,因在轉發境外關于武漢肺炎的新聞及視頻,一個月前被當局以涉嫌“煽動顛覆國家政權罪”刑事拘留,本月初被正式批捕。據當地信徒透露,趙懷國牧師被捕的真實原因與其拒絕加入官方三自教會有關。




張家界慈利縣伯特利家庭教會全體同工,本月中旬發出一份緊急代禱信,向外界披露教會牧師趙懷國,3月14日被張家界市國家安全局以“煽動顛覆國家政權罪”刑事拘留,4月2日被檢察院批捕。趙懷國的妻子張興紅告訴自由亞洲電台記者,她丈夫被刑事拘留後,警察還來抄家:“國安局的人,3月14日早晨七點多,不到七點半就來了,把趙牧師直接帶走了。然後就以煽動顛覆國家政權罪拘留。他(趙牧師被抓)的大概原因就說他在疫情期間,轉播了一些有關疫情或是國外的信息,他們說是什麽翻牆軟件,包括武漢疫情,可能包括政治方面的話題。” 









趙懷國是東北人,2007年到慈利縣宣教,並創立伯特利家庭教會。在此期間,官方曾多次要求趙懷國帶領的教會並入有官方背景的三自教會,但趙沒有同意。張興紅說,上周三,國安局六名警察帶著搜查令,上門查抄教會用品:“4月15日又過來了,帶了一份搜查令,把我們家書房內480本我們教會內部的,我的工具書,學習資料和一些翻印的,他們說是非法的,沒有書刊號的拿走了。

官方抓人 要被捕者家屬勿受訪



據關注基督徒權益的對華援助網站報道,張家界國安局人員多次找張興紅,要求她委托張家界本地律師代理趙懷國案,還要她簽署保證書,保證不向記者透露案情,不公開趙懷國的刑事拘留通知書和逮捕通知書。對此,張興紅感到無奈和不滿。



張興紅對本台說,當局強烈要求她在當地請律師:“上周那天,國安隊長要我去請張家界的律師,我們快速的把這個案子結案,我們爲趙懷國的案子不眠不休的,都是官話,都是什麽爲趙懷國好啊,這個、那個的。我心想你爲他好,把他抓進去了,你爲他好,爲什麽還到我家來搜這些書籍幹什麽。”



張興紅再次強調,她不會接受官派律師,她一定要自行委托辯護律師:“我說我堅決不接受,這就是我的態度,他說你請哪裏的律師都可以,這是你的權益,但是趙懷國已經委托律師了。我說開庭的時候,我有沒有權利更換律師或要求延期開庭,他說你有權利,我說那就可以。”

去年曾遭官方人員抄家及取締



張興紅還說,國安人員指趙懷國是行爲犯罪:“他們說,這個不是結果犯罪,是行爲犯罪。就說只要有這樣動作就是行爲犯罪,屬于政治性質。我知道我和趙牧師2007年來這裏宣教,他們一直在找趙牧師的把柄。去年3月16日到4月1日,把我們教會的桌子,教會的東西全部拉走了。”



伯特利教會位于慈利縣零陽鎮南街社區環城南路84號基督教慈利福音堂。據該教會不願披露姓名的信徒說,去年3月下旬,慈利縣民族宗教事務局、公安局等四十多人闖入伯特利教會,強行撬開教會大門,指教會非法聚會,還毀壞教會的用品,帶走《聖經》、詩歌本及鋼琴等教會用品。還要求講道人簽署《承諾書》,承諾不再舉辦宗教活動。4月,慈利縣民族宗教事務局向伯特利家庭教會發出取締該教會的決定書。

《灾难为何来?灾难几时结束?》(基督生命堂4月19日主日信息)2020-04-19 15:05:45

(一)主日敬拜:【基督徒的身世奧秘】(信友堂洪予健牧師,约翰福音17:6-9) 

《约翰福音》第十七章6~9节:祢从世上赐给我的人,我已将祢的名显明与他们。他们本是祢的,祢将他们赐给我,他们也遵守了祢的道。如今他们知道,凡祢所赐给我的,都是从祢那里来的;因为祢所赐给我的道,我已经赐给他们,他们也领受了,又确实知道,我是从祢出来的,并且信祢差了我来。我为他们祈求,不为世人祈求,却为祢所赐给我的人祈求,因他们本是祢的。


(二)新加坡基督生命堂4月19日主日专题信息:《灾难为何来?灾难几时结束?》(朱志山牧师)

在人遇到苦难时,他一定会问两个问题,就是 

① 苦难的起因何在?

② 苦难几时结束?

特别当全球性的灾难临到时,这两个疑问都在人的心中。

当新冠病毒蔓延,越来越多人因这病毒伤亡,国家的医疗设施也陷入危机中,经济大大的下滑,人一直问的问题就是这病毒到底是从哪里原生的?那是人延发的吗?还是从蝙蝠传到人而来?人都在此作出各种推测。

此外,当人已经渐渐认命,且接受这病毒的事实,人问的问题就是这病毒要几时才能结束呢?

确实,我们人的被造与动物不一样。动物无论在怎样的痛苦中都不会寻找开始与末了。但我们人的被造是有始有终的,因此看事情也是寻求开始,也寻求终结。不但是这病毒,在我们人生里头无论遇到怎样的苦难,我们也一样寻求起因,也同时盼望问题的结束。例如:经过婚姻破裂的人,一定不断的会问自己为什么婚姻会走到这一步?是谁的错?是因什么事情造成的?

另外人在这境况也不断的会问自己要到几时才能走出这样的痛苦。因此,“问题从何来?问题几时完?”是我们人在苦难中都会寻求的答案。但我们离开神的人其中一个最大的问题也就是无法完全知道问题的起因与结束。除了神以外,没有一个人能完全掌握万有与时间。我们只能猜测那起因或是预测那结束的时刻。在这新冠病毒的实情中,我们看见人几乎什么都能知道 – 每天死几个人、病毒的危害力、病毒怎么伤害人体、不同国家的应对决策等。但人唯有不能完全解答起因和终结的问题。倘若能,那就已经不是问题了。但事实是我们人只能知道问题中间的过程和那问题所产生的许多后果。

特别,当我们看到越来越多负面的后果,却不能领悟出问题的缘由和解答的方法时,我们就陷入更多的惧怕与无助。甚至我们可能会因为惧怕与无助而做出错误的见解,或是传达不真实的情报。

其实,神没有将真正的起因与结局向人隐藏。神自己就是开始与末了的解答。在人离开神之后,神在祂的公义里向世人施行审判,因此世界有各种的苦难。但神也同时在祂的慈爱里向世人施展祂的救恩。因此人类历史在犯罪堕落之后有各种的灾难临到,如:洪水、战争、瘟疫、饥荒等继续发生,但神并没有许可这些灾难毁灭人类,反倒一直存留人类,给他们悔改的机会。

但在每一次灾难临到与结束的中间,我们一定会看见几个很重要的事实:

① 即便世人有再强的力量,也不能解决罪所引发的问题。不管是埃及、亚述、巴比伦、希腊、罗马等,一个个都败落了。世界最厉害的政权,最高明的医生,最聪明的哲学家,最虔诚的宗教家都不能解除罪的问题和其后果;

② 属于主的人快速来到神面前,教会也越来越纯净。圣经历史告诉我们神的子民转向神、教会复兴,都不是在世界繁荣的日子,乃是在苦难的日子。不管是在埃及里为奴的以色列人,被掳掠的犹大,或是因司提反殉道的初代教会信徒都是在患难时复兴的;

③ 在患难中不信的人越来越刚硬。《启9:20-21》说:其余未曾被这些灾所杀的人仍旧不悔改自己手所做的,还是去拜鬼魔和那些不能看、不能听、不能走,金、银、铜、木、石的偶像,又不悔改他们那些凶杀、邪术、奸淫、偷窃的事。因此,我们不要稀奇。每当这世界经过一些苦难,而那些不靠神而暂时脱颖而出的人会更加的刚硬。他们会更有魄力地引诱这世界。

但属神的子民却是越来越谦卑,且将盼望放在主荣耀的显现。因此,我们可以说神许可灾难时必有三个功用:

第一,是证明的功用(证明世人不能解决世界的问题);

第二,是快速拯救的功用(拯救神余剩的子民);

第三,是快速审判的功用(让不信的世人罪恶满盈,而最后遭受终极的审判)。


When a person encounters suffering, he will definitely ask two questions:

(1) What is the cause of suffering? 

(2) When will the suffering end? 

In particular, when a global calamity strikes, these two questions will be in the minds of people.  

As the novel coronavirus spreads, more and more people get infected and die from the virus, the medical facilities of various countries are in crisis, the economy continues to greatly decline, the question people continue to ask is where exactly did the virus originate from? Is it from man? Or from bat to man?  Everyone makes various speculations here. 

However, as people gradually accept their fate as well as the fact of the virus, the question people ask is how long will it take for the pandemic to end? 

Indeed, humans are created differently from animals. Regardless of the suffering animals are in, they do not look for the cause and the end. But the creation of humans has a beginning and an end, so people also seek to know the cause and the end when looking at things. Not only with this virus, no matter what kind of suffering we encounter in our lives, we also seek the cause, and at the same time anticipate the end of the problem. For example, those who have gone through broken marriages would have constantly asked themselves why the marriage reached that stage. Whose fault was it? What caused it? 

In addition, those in this situation would constantly ask themselves how long it would take to get out of such pain. Therefore, “Where does the problem come from? When does the problem end?” are answers we all seek in our suffering. But one of the biggest problems when we are separated from God is that we cannot fully know the cause of the problem and when it will end. 

Apart from God, no one can fully grasp all things and time. We can only guess the cause or predict when it may end. In this situation of the novel coronavirus, we see that people can know almost everything - how many people die each day, how harmful the virus is, how the virus harms the human body, and the decision-making of different countries, etc. 

But the only thing humans cannot unravel fully is the cause of the problem and when it will end. If humans can do so, it is no longer a problem. But the fact is, we can only know the process within the problem and the many consequences of that problem. In particular, when we see more and more negative consequences, but cannot understand the cause of the problem and the way to solve it, we will fall into greater fear and helplessness. We may even make wrong explanations because of fear and helplessness, or convey fake news and information. 

In fact, God does not hide the real cause and conclusion from man. God Himself is the answer to the beginning and the end. After man is separated from God, God in His righteousness, executes judgment on the world, hence the world has various sufferings. But at the same time, God in His loving kindness, also extends His salvation to the world. Therefore, in the history of mankind, various calamities came about after the fall of man, calamities such as floods, wars, plagues, famine, etc., continue to happen but God did not allow these calamities to destroy humans. On the contrary, He continues to preserve mankind, giving them the opportunity to repent. 

But in the midst of the start and end to every calamity, we must see a few very important truths:

 (1) Even if the people of this world have great power, they cannot solve the problems stemmed from sin. Whether it is Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Greece, Rome, etc., all of them were defeated and failed. The most powerful regime in the world, the most renowned doctor, the most intelligent philosopher, the most devout religious man cannot resolve the problem of sin and its consequences; 

(2) those who belong to the Lord come quickly before God, and the church becomes more and more purified. Biblical history tells us that God's people turning toward God and church revival did not happen in days of prosperity in the world, but in days of suffering. Whether it was the Israelites who were slaves in Egypt, Judah who was in captivity, or the martyrdom of Stephen among the early church believers, they were all revived during suffering; 

(3) non-believers in suffering become more and more hardened in heart. 《Rev 9:20-21》says, “The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood---idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.” Therefore, we should not be surprised. Whenever the world goes through some suffering, those who do not rely on God yet temporarily stand out among the crowd will become more hardened. They will have greater daring resolution to entice the world. 

But the people of God become more and more humble, and put their hope in the Lord’s glorious appearance. Therefore, we can say that God allows calamities to serve three functions.:

The first is the function to prove (to prove that people of this world cannot solve the problems of the world); 

The second is the function to save quickly (to save the remaining people of God); 

The third is the function to judge swiftly (to eventually give the ultimate judgement to the unbelieving world when they have reached the fullness of their sins).
