从敬拜的历史谈我们所面对的世界观 (1)
敬拜者今天所面临的难题

不像基督教的真理是永远不变, 从人的小聪明而发展出来的人类价值体系是随着时代潮流,一代代的改变的. 也就是说,每一代都有每一代的价值观. 今天, 我们这一代的价值观, 就是我们所谓的新的世界潮流, 不管你接不接受都已经充斥着我们今天的社会, 以及我每天的生活. 出门看到听到的各种不同的消息, 世界的价值观一步步接踵而来, 涌到我们的生活上, 心里面, 好像不迎合这个趋势就是落伍了. 但是我们一不小心, 错误的价值观竟渐渐的挑战着我们原本所持守的道德体系. 我们该如何是好?

世界上的价值观,是随着时代而改变的, 好像我们的衣服, 我们的发型, 在每个时代都有不同的打扮装饰. 每次价值观的改变就会带动潮流, 潮流大的话就带动流行, 这不但影响持守真理, 以基督的心为心, 一贯不变的基督教信仰, 并且顺势的将一些自古以来, 沉寂多时的奥秘主义,超自然运动, 各种灵界万物, 超人类的神学, 又给他重新包装,贴上新的标签, 好像从箱子底下挖出来, 而说这是新的发明. 甚至一些的宗教领袖以假先知的容貌出现, 充斥在我们今天的社会上每一个角落. 因为这股时代潮流的冲击, 连带的影响到今天, 我们用什么方式敬拜上帝. 也就是说, 在这21世纪的潮流冲击当中, 已经直接间接的塑造出我们现在的敬拜方式, 因为在这种潮流的冲击之下, 不少教会领袖为了留住更多的会员, 宁可向世界妥协, 向潮流顺服, 以赢得从人来的奖赏,及赞美, 渐渐的对社会价值观睁一只眼闭一只眼. 所以许多的基督徒慢慢的失去对世界的影响力. 耶稣在马太福音第五章就说过:

Mat 5:13 你們是世上的鹽.鹽若失了味、怎能叫他再鹹呢.以後無用、不過丟在外面、被人踐踏了。
Mat 5:14 你們是世上的光.城造在山上、是不能隱藏的。
Mat 5:15 人點燈、不放在斗底下、是放在燈臺上、就照亮一家的人。
Mat 5:16 你們的光也當這樣照在人前、叫他們看見你們的好行為、便將榮耀歸給你們在天上的父。

在前一世纪的运动潮流中, 敬拜赞美的方式为例, 从那时候的价值观发展出来的灵恩派, 强调有别于清教徒, 展现出一种对圣灵充满, 能说方言的灵性追求, 以表达出对神,从内心真正发出, 虔诚的敬拜. 然后, 连一向保守的天主教, 从来就不迎乎世界的潮流, 本来是裹足不前, 对于敬拜过程, 不断的修改创新, 为了向世人宣告天主教不是一成不变. 接下来浸信会, 圣公会,路德教会, 长老会, 联合卫理公会, 也都曾提出, 不同基督教协会, 应该能够整理出一个, 在音乐方面,在洗礼方面, 在领圣餐方面, 在敬拜程序方面, 制定出一个, 不同宗派, 都能够同意的, 以神为中心的敬拜方式, 使所有的基督徒都能够过一个爱神爱人, 荣耀主以神为乐的生活. 其实不是说这些行动不好, 而只是说明世界的潮流, 对基督教崇拜的方式的影响.

接下来, 21世纪后半世纪的情况, 也就是从1960年以后, 一些新的, 有个人特色的敬拜方式, 如雨后春笋的发展出来. 大多数是强调圣灵的内住, 从心到外发展出来的敬拜. 然后是1970年的嬉皮运动, 渐渐地发展出心中的喜乐是赞美上帝先决条件. 到了近十几, 20年, 我们敬拜上帝的方式, 似乎好像又回到了, 强调严谨的敬拜章程, 着重于对神的虔诚, 敬拜按照程序为主的敬拜方式.

这里不是批评不同的敬拜方式,也不是反对各种不同, 对神表达崇敬的方式. 只不过从耶稣时代到今天, 所有的敬拜领袖都认为他们所敬拜的方式, 是以神为中心最好的敬拜方式. 就好像每个世纪, 都有宗教家,政治家, 预言他们所处的世纪将是有史以来最重要, 并且比他们前一代人更幸福的世纪. 但是让我们看看人类整个历史, 我们活着的世界, 好像一代不如一代, 就在我们这个世纪的刚开始, 我们就已经看到了更多的暴力冲突,更多的仇恨, 更多的悲伤痛苦, 更多的漠不关心.

所以我们看到的, 经历到的世界潮流,虽然我们与潮流融合为一, 但是并没有解决问题, 我们的世界还是更加的混乱. 而事实上, 世界潮流本身也不是一个问题, 因为仇恨,悲伤,痛苦,暴力, 并不是一个潮流的衍生物, 因为这些问题在每个时代都有, 从远古到今天一直都有, 所以问题是在我们自己身上. 这个问题很明显的就是从人性中的罪引发出来的. 一直引发到我们的心思意念, 到我们的一举一动. 所以圣经的箴言说:

箴言 4:23 你要保守你心、勝過保守一切〔或作你要切切保守你心〕因為一生的果效、是由心發出。

我们可以很清楚地看到, 世界潮流所带来的问题, 其实只是结果并不是原因. 真正的起因, 就是在我们自己身上, 是我们还没有悔改的罪, 在我们的内心捆绑着我们. 我们怎么将这个罪的包袱抛掉呢? 好消息就是,从圣经里, 上帝已经告诉我们解决的方式, 我们只要遵循这个解决方式, 我们就能够改变这个社会, 你相信吗? 我们下次再讨论好吗?

Worldview - The challenge we are facing
Talk about the history of worship and the worldview and how it impacts us? What is the real problem?
The truth about the Christianity is never changed. The worldview and value of each limited individual can never out smart than the unlimited God. The worldview is also changing constantly. Every generation has its worldview regardless you accept it or not, this how it work because it affect our life including Christian life and how we worship God.
Throughout the history, the church worldview has been change constantly. This atmosphere has produced the new age movement, which directly challenges the Christian faith, and allow the rediscovery of mystery, supernatural and spirituality and even false religion into our life. As the worldview has been taking place, worship has undergone unprecedented revolution. The twenty-first century church movement has effect on the current forms and styles of worship to address the significant drop in membership and loss of members of mainline religious denominations.
Matthew 5:13-16:
13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.
14 layouts are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 minor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so nthat2 they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Worship in twentieth century was the beginning of Pentecostal movement with enlightenment approach to worship, and then the Roman Catholic Church that used to lock themselves into the rigid rubrics has been impacted by this worship renewal. The mainliners have expressed a hope for a unified worship amount Christians and is express in the landmark publication of Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry.
Then a new form of worship was ushered in by the charismatic movement in 1960s with its openness to the Spirit, then the hippie counterculture Jesus movement in 1970’s resulted in the new worship centering around the praises and worship and recently these movements seems to merged to have called the convergence movement of worship[Worship Old and New, p187] that blending charismatic worship with liturgies.

This is not an article to criticize different worship tradition or style. It only served as a reminder that from Jesus time to now a day, every worship leader are calming that their worship is the best worship and give most of the glorification to the Lord. Their worship is around the center of God and is God centered worship. Just like every police leader saying that their era is the best era and will be better than before.
Proverbs 4:23English Standard Version (ESV) 23 Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.

Unfortunately, we are constantly being self-center ourselves. Throughout the history, every Christian leader think that the century they live is the Christian century just as today, Christian leaders think the twenty-first century is the Christian century. However, on the contrary, we’re actually seeing more war, violent, hatred and misery in the early parts of the century. How do we fix this problem?
We can see the real problem is not the value from the world but from ourselves. Our sin forbidden up to change the world. The sin in side us bind us with limitation, burden and hatred. How do we solve this? From the bible, God already provide an annotate for your problem. Jesus also say as long as we do this, we will not only be saving but the kingdom of God will be on the earth just as on the heaven, do you believe it? I will discuss this more in next blog. Thank you very much. Please subject to my channel and my blog from my website, thank you very much. If you have any commend, please post here or on my website www.HouseOfUnited.org. I appreciate it.
