美南浸信會眾主席號召成員作好公民抗命的準備

移民美國前,從來沒有想過要為信仰基督而反抗建制,但美國最高法院對同性婚姻的裁決在即,無論判決如何,最高法院受理此案標誌著負責司法的法庭走自行釋法的路,而不是將權限以外的立法責任交還給國會,美國三權分立制度失守。

我要為十六位美南浸信會主席聯合發表的公開聲明而感恩,也為保守美國立國根基而公民抗命作了準備。

草草將聲明譯作中文:

作為美南浸信會的基督徒,我們委身於聖經的信仰和道德。因此,我們堅守以聖經的權威和神的真理為我們生命的中心。

聖經有關婚姻的真理是清楚的、明確的和不變的。我們肯定按聖經的教導、教會傳統,自然的婚姻是一男一女一生的盟約承諾。聖經中對婚姻的教導沒有討價還價的餘地。神的話語和耶穌的見證是我們生命的依歸。

因此,我們不會接受、也不會遵守,任何政治或司法機構--包括美國最高法院--發出對婚姻的重新法律定義。我們不會承認同性"婚姻",我們的教會不會舉辦同性婚禮儀式,我們也不會主持這種婚禮儀式。

儘管我們確定我們的愛是遍及所有人,當中包括對同性產生性慾的人,我們不能亦不會承認同性戀行為或者各種違背神對婚姻原有設計的行為合乎道德。我們亦相信信仰自由是這重要議題的核心,就是我們的首要責任是愛和服從神,不是人。

因此,我們强烈鼓勵所有美南浸信會的牧師,領袖,教師,和會友公開地反對任何對婚姻定義的強制性法律,並運用各人的影響力去肯定神在生命和人倫的設計。作為有超過一千六百萬成員,全國最大的非天主教宗派,我們擺上自己的生命和未來於神的話語的真理之上。

不管在企業世界,公開市場,教育,娛樂,媒體,和任何地方堅守自然婚姻的,我們都會團結地用禱告,影響力,和資源加以支持。

原文如下:

As Southern Baptist Christians, we are committed to Biblical faith and ethics. As a result, this body of Believers stands on the authority of Scripture and God's Truth as central to our lives.

What the Bible says about marriage is clear, definitive and unchanging. We affirm biblical, traditional, natural marriage as the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. The Scriptures' teaching on marriage is not negotiable. We stake our lives upon the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

Consequently, we will not accept, nor adhere to, any legal redefinition of marriage issued by any political or judicial body including the United States Supreme Court. We will not recognize same-sex "marriages", our churches will not host same-sex ceremonies, and we will not perform such ceremonies.

While we affirm our love for all people, including those struggling with same-sex attraction, we cannot and will not affirm the moral acceptability of homosexual behavior or any behavior that deviates from God's design for marriage. We also believe religious freedom is at stake within this critical issue – that our first duty is to love and obey God, not man.

Therefore, we strongly encourage all Southern Baptist pastors, leaders, educators, and churches to openly reject any mandated legal definition of marriage and to use their influence to affirm God's design for life and relationships. As the nation's largest non-Catholic denomination with over 16 million members, we stake our very lives and future on the Truth of God's Word.

We also join together to support those who stand for natural marriage in the corporate world, the marketplace, education, entertainment, media and elsewhere with our prayers and influence, and resources.

Respectfully,

Dr. Bailey E. Smith SBC President: 1981, 1982
Dr. Morris H. Chapman SBC President: 1991, 1992
