saritura in-naltime

de pe buzele din secolul 19 catre urechile din secolul 21

destept titlu dat de cei de la 9 Marks unui scurt material ce aprtine teologului R.C. Ryle:

1. There is an undeniable zeal in some of the teachers of error: their “earnestness” makes many think they must be right. / Prezenta unui zel impresionant in dreptul celor care explica ce este erezia; “seriozitatea” afisata de ei face sa apara foarte adevarate invataturile lor.

2. There is a great appearance of learning and theological knowledge: many fancy that such clever and intellectual men must surely be safe guides. / Exista aparenta unei cunsotinte si exprimari teologice; ei sunt destepti, sprintari iar spoiala intelectuala ii prezinta drept ghiduri sigure.

3. There is a general tendency to free thought and free inquiry in these latter days: many like to prove their independence of judgment, by believing novelties. / Accentul pus pe analiza si gandirea libera; multi isi dovedesc independenta rationamentului lor crezand tot felul de noutati.

4. There is a wide-spread desire to appear charitable and liberal-minded: many seem half ashamed of saying that anybody can be in the wrong. / Exista o larga dorinta de a aparea foarte generos, caritabil si liberal; multi se simt aproape rusinati sa spuna ca altii pot fi gresiti.

5. There is a quantity of half-truth taught by the modern false teachers: they are incessantly using. Scriptural terms and phrases in an unscriptural sense. / Exista o cantitate de adevar spus pe jumatate; falsii invatatori folosesc teminologie biblica intr-un sens nescripturistic/nebiblic.

6. There is a morbid craving in the public mind for a more sensuous, ceremonial, sensational, showy worship: men are impatient of inward, invisible heart-work. / In constiinta publica exista o infometare morbida dupa senzational, ceremonial, spectacol; oamenii se arata nerabdatori in fata unei lucrari tainice, ascunse.

7. There is a silly readiness in every direction to believe everybody who talks cleverly, lovingly and earnestly, and a determination to forget that Satan often masquerades himself “as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). / Exista o deschidere copilareasca catre oricine vorbeste destept, prietenos si ferm uitand ca insusi Satan se poate transforma la nevoie intr-un “inger de lumina”

8. There is a wide-spread “gullibility” among professing Christians: every heretic who tells his story plausibly is sure to be believed, and everybody who doubts him is called a persecutor and a narrow-minded man. / Exista o mare doza de credulitatea printre crestini; fiecare eretic isi spune povestea intr-o maniera credibila si oricine se indoieste de aceasta este numit judecator si ingust la minte.
