There Are Only Two Religions in the World! 兩種宗教

tworeligionsTHE TWO RELIGIONS (兩種宗教 below⇓↓)

One man used to spend much of his time witnessing about Jesus on the streets of a California city and tells of having this question posed to him time and again: “How can you say that YOU have ‘the Truth’? There are hundreds of religions in the country, and all of them think that theirs is the only right one. How can I possibly know which of them IS the right one?”

The man would answer: “Hundreds of religions, you say? Why that’s strange! I’ve heard of only TWO!” His listeners would retort, “Oh, but you MUST know that there are MANY more than that!” To which he would reply, “Not at all. I will admit that WITHIN these two different religions, there are many different sects and differences of opinion. But there are, after all, only TWO.

“The one religion consists of all those different faiths that believe that they can EARN their own salvation by doing good deeds, by being ‘righteous’ and by keeping different kinds of religious laws and commandments. This, as you must realise, comprises most of the faiths of the World. The other religion consists of those who KNOW that they are INCAPABLE of saving themselves, and look to the LORD ALONE to save them!

“So you see, the whole question is really very simple! Do YOU think you can save YOURSELF, or somehow EARN your Salvation by being ‘GOOD’?–Or do you realise that you need a SAVIOUR to RESCUE you from your sins and mistakes?”

“For by GRACE are you saved through FAITH, and that NOT of YOURSELVES; it is the GIFT of GOD. NOT of WORKS, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

“NOT BY WORKS of righteousness which WE have done, but according to His MERCY HE saved us.” (Titus 3:5)

兩種宗教

有一個人,他花許多時間在加利福尼亞州的一個城市街上,見證有關耶穌。他說人們一次又一次地問他這個問題:「你怎可說你有真理呢?世上有數以百計的宗教,他們可都認為自己是那唯一對的宗教。我怎可知道他們中那個是對的呢?」

那人會回答:「你說有數以百計的宗教嗎?這真奇怪!我只聽過有兩種宗教!」他的聆聽者會反駁:「啊,你一定知道世上有多過兩種以上的許多宗教的!」他會回答說:「完全不。我承認,在這兩種不同宗教,有許多不同的教派和不同的意見。但世上只有兩種宗教而已。」

「那兩種宗教中的其中一個,包含了所有那些相信他們做好事、變得『正義』和遵守各種不同的宗教律法和誡命,就可賺得自己的救恩的不同信仰。你必需要了解,這種宗教包括了世上的大部份信仰。另一種宗教,則包括那些知道自己無能力自救,指望上主救他們的信仰!」

「因此,整個問題實在是非常簡單的!認為你可自救,或靠著在各方面做而賺得救恩呢?或你了解到你需要一個救主,救你脫離你的罪和錯誤呢?」

「你們得救是本乎,也因著,這並是出於自己,乃是上帝的,也是出於行為,免得有人自誇。」(以弗所書2:8,9)

救了我們,並因我們自己所的義,乃是照祂的憐憫。」(提多書3:5)
