聖經中的士師(Judges) vs. 今日的法官

士師英文釋本為 Judge,跟今天的一般理解的法官的角色是審理及裁定一些事端有很大的分別。

士師是拯救者 (deliverer),耶和華興起士師去幫助以色列民去抵抗外敵。 (士師記 3:9-10)

這幾天香港發生了兩宗重要的判決,叫人對香港的法治起了極大的質疑。

律政司對一群參與社運的年青人的刑期提出上訴,上訴庭的三位法官推翻原審的裁決,重判他們入獄六至十三個月。

法治之所以被受尊崇,不就是因為能保障人嗎?

法官若不行正道,貪圖財利、收受賄賂、屈枉正直,不是跟最後的士師,撒母耳的兩個兒子一樣,早晚會被人唾棄嗎?

參考經文:

士師記 3:9-10

  1. 以色列人呼求耶和華的時候、耶和華就為他們興起一位拯救者救他們、就是迦勒兄弟、基納斯的兒子俄陀聶。
  2. 耶和華的靈降在他身上、他就作了以色列的士師、出去爭戰.耶和華將米所波大米王古珊利薩田交在他手中、他便勝了古珊利薩田。

Paulist Fathers Statement on Charlottesville, and a Magnificat Reflection

My religious community, the Paulist Fathers, released a statement yesterday on events last weekend in Charlottesville. I know I am not alone in being grateful that this is not a statement on “events,” read as something like “the regrettable violence between two parties in conflict.” The Paulists address racism and white supremacy specifically. 485 more words
