神圣洁, 教会也必须圣洁: 第二部分 - 附录I

附录I: 我给周爱玲牧师在2014年11月26日的电邮

Hello Sister Jocelyn,

 

I am writing to you to confirm several items that we have reached agreement and some others that still need to work through. I wish we could have dealt with some of these matters in a more peaceful circumstance. We will do the best we can for now, and pray one day Lord will bless us with true reconciliation for the sake of the Unity of His Church.

 

The areas that we have agreed:

 

·      Sister Jocelyn will resign from the Board of All Girls Allowed, as of Nov. 14th 2014;

·      Sister Jocelyn will look into refinancing the $250,000 loan back to Jenzabar foundation. You said you would get back to us. May we suggest a deadline of your decision by Dec 5th, 2014?

·      Sister Jocelyn will look into giving back Ling’s personal donation to ROLCCIB church on Oct 7, 2012 to build a 7 by 24 house of prayer to be given back to All Girls Allowed to help the women and children in China. May we also suggest a deadline of your decision by Dec 5th, 2014?

·      Ling will no longer worship at ROLCCIB, and Sister Jocelyn cease to be Ling’s pastor.

·      “Don’t touch my anointed one, or you will be cursed” can’t be applied falsely to and among Jesus believers. For God commanded us through Romans 12:14, “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” All Christians are anointed http://www.gotquestions.org/anointed.html,

 

The areas that we need to work through, many of them were statements made by you against us, it would be good to reach resolutions on them. Any wrongful statement, if you agree with our belief, you can simply apologize to us and clear the false statements with whoever brought forth against us. As the Lord commanded us to love each other, as he has loved us. He calls us not speak evil against each other in James 4:11 in James 4:17 “11 [My] brethren, do not speak evil about or accuse one another. He that maligns a brother or judges his brother is maligning and criticizing the Law and judging the Law. But if you judge the Law, you are not a practicer of the Law but a censor and judge [of it].” James 4: 1717 So any person who knows what is right to do but does not do it, to him it is sin.”

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “Bob and Ling did all this (on Nov 7th) just tried to promote themselves”

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: the statement is false. After waiting for a whole year for SOP and Jocelyn to agree to put mercy and justice work in the worship concert that Bob helped secure the venue at Harvard church, yet receive no co-operation from SOP and Jocelyn, Bob tried to reach out to Pastor J to understand whether the statement made by Jocelyn “no needing of Bob’s help on securing the venue” was true or not. On the morning of Nov. 7th, Bob finally was able to meet J in person. J confirmed that it was indeed that sponsorship still are required to be able to book the space. And he may became the default sponsor. Upon Bob’s question for advice whether we should compromise on justice and mercy message when worship, J said, “We can compromise on other things, but we can’t compromise on justice and mercy, because justice and mercy are love. And our love is the foundation that our faith is built upon…” since that was the message that SOP and Jocelyn were not willing to mention, J as the official sponsor for the event would speak for 5 mins to welcome the guests and to share the message from the Lord. He was going to talk about what it means to have true worship in the current context of China, including mentioning about the work of All Girls Allowed;

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: Jocelyn correct the false statement through apology with all involved, and understand, practice and disciple true worship as stated in Isaiah 58.

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “You use money to control people”

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: this statement is false. We have been very blessed by the Lord and we have been trying to be a good servant to steward His resourcing according to His teachings:

§  To give to the poor, orphan and widows and the oppressed; Jenzabar foundation, All Girls allowed. Glamour magazine Women of the year fund, etc.

§  To support His churches, prayer centers

§  To give to God’s servants for fellowship and encouragement to them and their work

§  But we have a duty to make sure the fund are used for God’s purpose, i.e. when the person stole money for women and mothers to buy a car, or fund that was not used as it was designated, actions must be taken.

o  Bob and Ling’s hope:  Jocelyn correct the false statement through apology with all involved, and come with godly decisions on the above two financial maters

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “Ling is not doing anything for China, she left China, has not been back to China, she does not know China, she married an American husband and goes to an American church…”

 

o  Ling’s response: the conclusion that “Ling is not doing anything for China” is false.  Ling has been working tirelessly for China. Quitting her financial job, working on voluntary basis more than full time through All Girls Allowed to end One Child policy, to end gendercide, to help fund and build a team here in Boston and in China to help rescue the poor and the women and children. In 2014 alone, All Girls Allowed helps and supports 480 families, and 10+ orphan like children, Jocelyn visited some of these families in March and said she wept with them and gave them her own money;

 

o  Ling’s response: the statement “She left China, has not been back to China” is correct and painful, because what she did at Tiananmen, she could not even go back to bury her own mom and grandma. And she refused to sign a letter of apology like others so she could go back to China to make money to profit or simply to visit friends and families. This is a high price to pay for China’s freedom. And we believe God honors it. But statement to ridicule Ling on these sacrifices is cruel.

 

o  Ling’s response: the statement “she married an America husband”. She is blessed to marry the husband the Lord has prepared for her. Even Jocelyn prayed in 2012 the Lord has told Jocelyn Bob was Ling’s Boaz. Any issue with God’s plans for our lives?

 

o  Ling’s hope:  Jocelyn corrects the false statement through apology with all involved.

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn: “she goes to an American Church…” “She comes to the my church when she needs to use me, she does not come when she no longer needs to use me,”

 

o   Ling’s response: the statement “she goes to an American Church…” is true now and the 2nd statement was completely false. Ling loved Jocelyn’s passion for Christians to experience the true power and anointing of what was promised in the Bible, the message of PHD, preaching, healing and deliverance, and has diligently came to worship, attended many teachings on weekends, at the expense of leaving her own children behind. But Jocelyn’s handing of Ling’s rape case broke the shepherd/sheep trust for Ling. For advocating for Ling, to allowing and tolerating senior Pastor Liu Tong’s rejection for Ling’s plea for an investigation; to not standing with Ling fully in her difficult confrontation against the skillful perpetrator, to persuading Tom and Bryan not supporting Ling, to adopting Liu Tong’s line of “he said, she said” to admitting no longer believe in Ling, that was very hurtful and unfitting as a shepherd. Ezekiel 34: 4: “but you do not feed the sheep.The diseased and weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the hurt and crippled you have not bandaged, those gone astray you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought to find,” Ezekiel 34: 18-19: “18 Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture; and to drink of clear water, that you must muddy the rest of the water with your feet? 19 And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have muddied with your feet?” Ling does not use people because the desire to use people comes from the enemy.

 

o   Ling’s hope:  Jocelyn corrects the false statement through apology with all involved. And Jocelyn truly changes to become a real shepherd for God’s sheep. Ling hope for true reconciliation with Jocelyn that day. Did Jocelyn did out jealousy or to control Ling when she took her actions on betray her duty as a shepherd? With the new evidence of Ling’s polygraph test Jocelyn has a chance to become a true shepherd to ling to do the right thing

 

·      Statement made by Jocelyn for Bob and Ling to apologize for coming to Harvard event last minute

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: Bob has desired to connect with Jocelyn sooner all year. We feel Jocelyn did wrong here based on Matthew 5:23-24: “23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: Jocelyn change heart according to God’s words so we can have true reconciliation according to God’s truth

 

·      Jocelyn withheld truth about SOP’s application to perform in China

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: Bob and Ling felt deceived, abused and deeply dishonored by Jocelyn and SOP. In 2013, when Jocelyn was desperate with one month to go to host SOP concert without a venue, Ling, in trust and in good faith, connected Bob to open door for Jocelyn and SOP in Harvard, Bob took and paid the whole SOP team for lunch, and Ling gave privately to bless and support SOP, thinking this is honor God through blessing true worshiping. Now found out Jocelyn gave false information about sponsorship, SOP’s trying to cozy up to Chinese government, but still wanting to use Bob and Ling’s connection, and even bad mouth Bob and Ling about their motive to share the message of true worship, and characterize their generosity as controlling, yet neither Jocelyn nor SOP has realized the giving of money and hearts from bob and Ling, this is deeply disappointing. But I now understand why the Lord allowed the confrontation so all parties can reveal their hearts.

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: SOP to honor Bob and Ling by acknowledge their wrong of trying to use Bob and Ling’s connection at Harvard, to give back the $1000 to All Girls Allowed to do true worshiping according to Isaiah 58, to apologize for their defaming statements against Bob and Ling with all involved; for Jocelyn to honor Bob and Ling by apologizing to hiding the truth of SOP’s action while Ling made generous offering to honor their desire to not wanting to partner. Be fair with Ling. Stop abuse Ling’s heart and kindness. It is dishonoring to God, and God sees all and knows all.   

 

·      Jocelyn and SOP’s decision regarding China

 

o  Bob and Ling’s response: it is a free world. God knows the real motives and will judge each person accordingly. 1 Corinthians 12:26 “25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” As of Bob and I, we have made the decision to never stop speaking out against human rights abuses, justice and mercy. Whether we are in China or in here, there are still price to pay for doing the right thing. But we trust that it is God who protects us and we have our peace.

 

o  Bob and Ling’s hope: SOP and Jocelyn will do the right thing according to God’s words in the future

 

·      Concern over discovery that Jocelyn does not have an elder board and only supervisor is Liu tong in west coast

 

o   Bob and Ling’s response: this is very dangerous for Jocelyn and for the church. God said, It is not good for man to be alone. He intends for us to live in true community that we can hold each other accountable and support each other through this journey on earth. 1 Peter 5:8 “Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

 

o   Bob and Ling’s hope: Jocelyn prayerfully establish a true accountability group and Board for her church

 

 

With all these differences, we hope sister Jocelyn and brother Jeff will prayerfully consider each points and we can hope to come to some agreement. I desire to have a Godly, healthy, and real relationship with you, for the Unity of the Church. We love to hear back from you on or before Dec 5th, 2014.

 

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

 

Ling

柴玲女士及女童之聲於三八婦女節呼籲中國結束一胎化政策

圖片來源:WORDPRESS.COM

 

三八婦女節,柴玲女士和女童之聲促請中國盡早廢除實行了35年的一胎化政策。每年3月8日的國際婦女節宗旨在於慶祝女性在社會、政治和經濟上的成就,同時鼓勵社會各界把目光投向在婦女權益方面有待改善的地方。我們認爲,中國的一胎化政策正正就是其中一個有待改善的地方。

 

於1979年實施的一胎化政策,爲中國的母親和女童帶來了嚴重的影響。這項政策的推行,連同中國重男輕女的傳統觀念,迫使人們透過墮胎、殺嬰和遺棄等途徑有系統性地消滅女童。現在,每六個女孩中,就有一個因墮胎而死去,而不少母親更因超生而被迫進行人工流産或絕育手術。這些手術不僅對她們的身心健康構成威脅,還奪去了她們的基本生育權。

 

女童之聲對中國政府近年來在人口政策方面作出的數個改善表示支持。2012年7月,中國正式禁止對懷孕晚期的婦女進行強制性墮胎。2013年3月,備受爭議的人口和計劃生育委員會與國家衛生部結合...
