神圣洁, 教会也必须圣洁: 第二部分 - 附录I

附录I: 我给周爱玲牧师在2014年11月26日的电邮

Hello Sister Jocelyn,

 

I am writing to you to confirm several items that we have reached agreement and some others that still need to work through. I wish we could have dealt with some of these matters in a more peaceful circumstance. We will do the best we can for now, and pray one day Lord will bless us with true reconciliation for the sake of the Unity of His Church.

 

The areas that we have agreed:

 

·      Sister Jocelyn will resign from the Board of All Girls Allowed, as of Nov. 14th 2014;

·      Sister Jocelyn will look into refinancing the $250,000 loan back to Jenzabar foundation. You said you would get back to us. May we suggest a deadline of your decision by Dec 5th, 2014?

·      Sister Jocelyn will look into giving back Ling’s personal donation to ROLCCIB church on Oct 7, 2012 to build a 7 by 24 house of prayer to be given back to All Girls Allowed to help the women and children in China. May we also suggest a deadline of your decision by Dec 5th, 2014?

·      Ling will no longer worship at ROLCCIB, and Sister Jocelyn cease to be Ling’s pastor.

·      “Don’t touch my anointed one, or you will be cursed” can’t be applied falsely to and among Jesus believers. For God commanded us through Romans 12:14, “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” All Christians are anointed http://www.gotquestions.org/anointed.html,

 

The areas that we need to work through, many of them were statements made by you against us, it would be good to reach resolutions on them. Any wrongful statement, if you agree with our belief, you can simply apologize to us and clear the false statements with whoever brought forth against us. As the Lord commanded us to love each other, as he has loved us. He calls us not speak evil against each other in James 4:11 in James 4:17 “11 [My] brethren, do not speak evil about or accuse one another. He that maligns a brother or judges his brother is maligning and criticizing the Law and judging the Law. But if you judge the Law, you are not a practicer of the Law but a censor and judge [of it].” James 4: 1717 So any person who knows what is right to do but does not do it, to him it is sin.”

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “Bob and Ling did all this (on Nov 7th) just tried to promote themselves”

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: the statement is false. After waiting for a whole year for SOP and Jocelyn to agree to put mercy and justice work in the worship concert that Bob helped secure the venue at Harvard church, yet receive no co-operation from SOP and Jocelyn, Bob tried to reach out to Pastor J to understand whether the statement made by Jocelyn “no needing of Bob’s help on securing the venue” was true or not. On the morning of Nov. 7th, Bob finally was able to meet J in person. J confirmed that it was indeed that sponsorship still are required to be able to book the space. And he may became the default sponsor. Upon Bob’s question for advice whether we should compromise on justice and mercy message when worship, J said, “We can compromise on other things, but we can’t compromise on justice and mercy, because justice and mercy are love. And our love is the foundation that our faith is built upon…” since that was the message that SOP and Jocelyn were not willing to mention, J as the official sponsor for the event would speak for 5 mins to welcome the guests and to share the message from the Lord. He was going to talk about what it means to have true worship in the current context of China, including mentioning about the work of All Girls Allowed;

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: Jocelyn correct the false statement through apology with all involved, and understand, practice and disciple true worship as stated in Isaiah 58.

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “You use money to control people”

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: this statement is false. We have been very blessed by the Lord and we have been trying to be a good servant to steward His resourcing according to His teachings:

§  To give to the poor, orphan and widows and the oppressed; Jenzabar foundation, All Girls allowed. Glamour magazine Women of the year fund, etc.

§  To support His churches, prayer centers

§  To give to God’s servants for fellowship and encouragement to them and their work

§  But we have a duty to make sure the fund are used for God’s purpose, i.e. when the person stole money for women and mothers to buy a car, or fund that was not used as it was designated, actions must be taken.

o  Bob and Ling’s hope:  Jocelyn correct the false statement through apology with all involved, and come with godly decisions on the above two financial maters

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “Ling is not doing anything for China, she left China, has not been back to China, she does not know China, she married an American husband and goes to an American church…”

 

o  Ling’s response: the conclusion that “Ling is not doing anything for China” is false.  Ling has been working tirelessly for China. Quitting her financial job, working on voluntary basis more than full time through All Girls Allowed to end One Child policy, to end gendercide, to help fund and build a team here in Boston and in China to help rescue the poor and the women and children. In 2014 alone, All Girls Allowed helps and supports 480 families, and 10+ orphan like children, Jocelyn visited some of these families in March and said she wept with them and gave them her own money;

 

o  Ling’s response: the statement “She left China, has not been back to China” is correct and painful, because what she did at Tiananmen, she could not even go back to bury her own mom and grandma. And she refused to sign a letter of apology like others so she could go back to China to make money to profit or simply to visit friends and families. This is a high price to pay for China’s freedom. And we believe God honors it. But statement to ridicule Ling on these sacrifices is cruel.

 

o  Ling’s response: the statement “she married an America husband”. She is blessed to marry the husband the Lord has prepared for her. Even Jocelyn prayed in 2012 the Lord has told Jocelyn Bob was Ling’s Boaz. Any issue with God’s plans for our lives?

 

o  Ling’s hope:  Jocelyn corrects the false statement through apology with all involved.

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “she goes to an American Church…” “She comes to the my church when she needs to use me, she does not come when she no longer needs to use me,”

 

o   Ling’s response: the statement “she goes to an American Church…” is true now and the 2nd statement was completely false. Ling loved Jocelyn’s passion for Christians to experience the true power and anointing of what was promised in the Bible, the message of PHD, preaching, healing and deliverance, and has diligently came to worship, attended many teachings on weekends, at the expense of leaving her own children behind. But Jocelyn’s handing of Ling’s rape case broke the shepherd/sheep trust for Ling. For advocating for Ling, to allowing and tolerating senior Pastor Liu Tong’s rejection for Ling’s plea for an investigation; to not standing with Ling fully in her difficult confrontation against the skillful perpetrator, to persuading Tom and Bryan not supporting Ling, to adopting Liu Tong’s line of “he said, she said” to admitting no longer believe in Ling, that was very hurtful and unfitting as a shepherd. Ezekiel 34: 4: “but you do not feed the sheep.The diseased and weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the hurt and crippled you have not bandaged, those gone astray you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought to find,” Ezekiel 34: 18-19: “18 Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture; and to drink of clear water, that you must muddy the rest of the water with your feet? 19 And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have muddied with your feet?” Ling does not use people because the desire to use people comes from the enemy.

 

o   Ling’s hope:  Jocelyn corrects the false statement through apology with all involved. And Jocelyn truly changes to become a real shepherd for God’s sheep. Ling hope for true reconciliation with Jocelyn that day. Did Jocelyn did out jealousy or to control Ling when she took her actions on betray her duty as a shepherd? With the new evidence of Ling’s polygraph test Jocelyn has a chance to become a true shepherd to ling to do the right thing

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn for Bob and Ling to apologize for coming to Harvard event last minute

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: Bob has desired to connect with Jocelyn sooner all year. We feel Jocelyn did wrong here based on Matthew 5:23-24: “23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: Jocelyn change heart according to God’s words so we can have true reconciliation according to God’s truth

 

·      Jocelyn withheld truth about SOP’s application to perform in China

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: Bob and Ling felt deceived, abused and deeply dishonored by Jocelyn and SOP. In 2013, when Jocelyn was desperate with one month to go to host SOP concert without a venue, Ling, in trust and in good faith, connected Bob to open door for Jocelyn and SOP in Harvard, Bob took and paid the whole SOP team for lunch, and Ling gave privately to bless and support SOP, thinking this is honor God through blessing true worshiping. Now found out Jocelyn gave false information about sponsorship, SOP’s trying to cozy up to Chinese government, but still wanting to use Bob and Ling’s connection, and even bad mouth Bob and Ling about their motive to share the message of true worship, and characterize their generosity as controlling, yet neither Jocelyn nor SOP has realized the giving of money and hearts from bob and Ling, this is deeply disappointing. But I now understand why the Lord allowed the confrontation so all parties can reveal their hearts.

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: SOP to honor Bob and Ling by acknowledge their wrong of trying to use Bob and Ling’s connection at Harvard, to give back the $1000 to All Girls Allowed to do true worshiping according to Isaiah 58, to apologize for their defaming statements against Bob and Ling with all involved; for Jocelyn to honor Bob and Ling by apologizing to hiding the truth of SOP’s action while Ling made generous offering to honor their desire to not wanting to partner. Be fair with Ling. Stop abuse Ling’s heart and kindness. It is dishonoring to God, and God sees all and knows all.   

 

·      Jocelyn and SOP’s decision regarding China

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: it is a free world. God knows the real motives and will judge each person accordingly. 1 Corinthians 12:26 “25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” As of Bob and I, we have made the decision to never stop speaking out against human rights abuses, justice and mercy. Whether we are in China or in here, there are still price to pay for doing the right thing. But we trust that it is God who protects us and we have our peace.

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: SOP and Jocelyn will do the right thing according to God’s words in the future

 

·      Concern over discovery that Jocelyn does not have an elder board and only supervisor is Liu tong in west coast

 

o   Bob and Ling’s response: this is very dangerous for Jocelyn and for the church. God said, It is not good for man to be alone. He intends for us to live in true community that we can hold each other accountable and support each other through this journey on earth. 1 Peter 5:8 “Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

 

o   Bob and Ling’s hope: Jocelyn prayerfully establish a true accountability group and Board for her church

 

 

With all these differences, we hope sister Jocelyn and brother Jeff will prayerfully consider each points and we can hope to come to some agreement. I desire to have a Godly, healthy, and real relationship with you, for the Unity of the Church. We love to hear back from you on or before Dec 5th, 2014.

 

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

 

Ling

爸爸去哪兒 女孩兒去哪兒
《爸爸去哪兒》在全國的熱播,讓我們看到了孩子的可愛、親子的溫馨; 尤其是王詩齡和Cindy更是讓人喜歡得不得了!
 
 
 
城市裡流傳的“兒子窮著養,女兒富著養”,使女兒“千金”之軀更加寶貝,重男輕女的現像也越來越不被在乎了。
 
可是在農村,由於中國幾千年來的重男輕女文化和“一胎化”政策的施壓,家庭要極力確保他們唯一的孩子是男孩。否則一個女孩的出生不但對於家庭來說是噩耗,更是家族的恥辱!
 
許多家庭在懷孕時發現是女孩後會選擇將其流產掉;或者在出生後殺掉、拋棄。
 
在中國,每六個女孩中,就有一個永遠地消失了。

人大代表建議開放二胎

 

 

羊城晚報訊(特派北京記者張林)報導:“前年提了,去年提了,今年還要提!”3月3日,在首都大酒店一樓大堂,全國人大代表、廣東省中山紀念中學校長賀優琳憤憤不平地說,他連續兩年向國家計生委提出了放寬二胎的建議,但始終沒有得到答复。 “所以這次我要藉著'兩會'的機會,向全國人大反映這個問題。首先是態度問題,問題能不能解決是另外一回事。必須正確對待代表提的意見和建議。”
 
建議“放開第二胎,刻不容緩”
 
賀優琳的建議是“完全放開生二胎”。
 
“很簡單,農村基本上都生有二胎。那些民營企業家基本上很少獨子,有錢人可以承受罰款。真正受控制的就是工薪階層。”賀優琳解釋。如果放開生二胎,得益者是哪些群體?賀優琳說:“實際上得益者是很少層面的,就是我們現在所說的公務員、和事業編制的人。但這個層面的人比例很少,就算全面放開也不一定個個都會生...
