I. What’s Really Wrong with Us?


The wrong diagnosis leads to the wrong prescription.


Our self-help culture says: The problem is outside of you, it’s not your fault, but you can change it through self-help; you’re the solution.

我們以自助為本的文化說: 問題不在你, 是外在因素造成的, 但你可以經由自己的努力改變外在環境; 你自己就是問題的答案.

The Bible says, your biggest problem is completely your fault but you can’t possibly change on your own.  The problem is not out there to be overcome but inside to be surrendered to Christ.

聖經說, 你最大的問題都是己的問題, 並且你沒有辦法靠自己來改變.  問題不是靠著外面試圖去克服的, 而是藉由裡面向著基督的降服才得以解決.

Tempted (attraction) -> Lured (deception) -> Enticed (preoccupation) -> Death (subjection)

試探 (吸引)-> 引誘 (欺騙) -> 迷惑 (著迷) -> 死亡 (奴役)
