一件共知的记号 A remarkable sign

Acts 4:15-17

15于是吩咐他们到公议会外面去,彼此商议,16说:对这些人我们应该怎么办呢?因为有一件人所共知的神迹,藉着他们行了出来,所有住在耶路撒冷的人都知道,我们也无法否认。17为了避免这件事在民间越传越广,我们应该警告他们,不许再奉这名向任何人谈道。

15 So they ordered them to withdraw from the Sanhedrin and then conferred together. 16 “What are we going to do with these men?” they asked. “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a notable sign, and we cannot deny it. 17 But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name.”

 

 

重点学习

我们应当注意,不让恶人掌管教会。所有被召去管理教会的人都应该带着虔诚的心行事,以免他们伤害了别人。如果他们滥用这荣誉,那么圣灵会宣告他们所命令和宣称的一切都是无效的。牧师的权威是有限的。如果他们超越自己的本分,我们可以合法地拒绝服从他们。如果我们服从他们,只会导致大恶,就如我们现在所看到的。

We must note that the wicked must not be commended to the government of the church. Those who are called to this office must behave reverently, in case they have the power to wound. If they do abuse this honor, the Spirit declares, whatever they order and decree ought to be null and void. Pastors’ authority is limited. If they go beyond their limits, we may lawfully refuse to obey them. If we did obey them, great wickedness would follow, as we now see.
