有關愛德華滋一二事
Albert Mohler

In his sermon entitled "The Christian Pilgrim", Jonathan Edwards wrote: “The enjoyment of [God] is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here.Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance.These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean. ”
愛德華滋在一篇名為〈朝聖基督徒〉的講道中提到:「我們的靈魂只有在享受神時才能得到滿足的喜樂。在天堂裡完全的享受神,比在世寄居中最好的日子都要好上無限倍!父母、夫妻、兒女以及地上的朋友都只是影兒,『這些原是後事的影兒;那形體卻是基督』(西2:17) ,唯有神才是真體。因為這些只是零散的光輝,而神是太陽;這些只是支流,神卻是大海!」

The late Paul Ramsey, one of the editor's of the great Yale edition of Edward's works, once explained his significance: “One studies the time and backgrounds of some men in oer to understand them. Others have such rare greatness that one studies them in order to understand their times, Jonathan Edwards was such an original.”
Paul Ramsey 曾有如下對愛德華滋的盛讚:「有的時候,要認識一些偉人,就要研究他的時代和環境背景。另外一些更偉大的人,研究他們是為了要認識他的時代,如何被這個偉人所影響。愛德華滋就是一個影響他所在世代的偉人。」

後記:
世人都容易被環境影響,唯「上智」和「下愚」者不移。願你我成為基督徒後,都是「上信」的人,不會被世界影響,也不要被環境影響,乃是要去影響環境、改變世界!滿有聖靈和信心堅定的人,就能勝過天然人的基因和環境所帶來的衝擊和影響。(康來昌)
