女童之聲董事對于遠志明辭職的公開信:以耶穌的名單單地愛她


我們看到神州協會終于採取了行動使遠志明離開事工, 這讓我們很安慰。 我們認為這是這是他承認有罪的第一步,也是對柴玲姐妹和其她可能的受他的不道德和罪惡行為侵害的受害者公義的第一步。我們一直都希望遠先生會選擇以謙卑的態度來對這些指控作出反應,來懺悔自己的行為,並進入一個符合聖經程序的恢復過程。但他選擇不做任何一種有建設性的程序,那面對這麼多的嚴重的指控, 遠從一切公共侍奉和事工中離開的決定是應該的。

我們鼓勵神州協會貫徹自己的承諾,對遠志明關于這些指控做認真全面的調查。我們希望他們能得到遠的全部認罪和悔改,使遠的受害人能夠獲得他們應得的公義,所有人的恢復過程都可以開始。性侵犯的受害者敢于公開她們的受害事件是需要極大的勇氣和力量的,她們應該受到尊重,聆聽,信賴和尊敬,而不是被騷擾和恐嚇。我們希望和祈禱的是,神州協會繼續跟進此事,盡職盡責,使遠先生最終選擇懺悔和恢復的道路,而不是他現在繼續否認和詆毀受害者的行為。

我們感謝18位華人牧師“作為蒙基督恩召的牧者”,他們為世界做出了上帝的好牧人如何為神的羊和教會舍命的榜樣,像神一樣的來“受傷的,我必纏裹。有病的,我必醫治……也要秉公牧養它們”。他們勇敢地承擔了組織獨立調查委員會的任務, 並在愛中辛勞, 給各方迅速地報告出真相。他們的勇氣,領導能力,公平和按照聖經處理的過程給我們的主耶穌和他的教會帶來了榮譽。他們是所有的信徒和沉默多年的受害者的英雄。

我們能夠理解對華人基督界這可能是個痛苦的階段。我們為一同經歷的這些痛苦和失望而難過。我們不要把痛苦變成對柴玲姐妹,其他受害者或18牧師的攻擊。讓我們聽從上帝的召喚,來追求教會的合一和聖潔。萬能的主耶和華一定能夠為了他的榮耀來堅固他的教會,並通過這些事件來對謙卑渴求他憐憫的人以和解和恢復的方式來實現他的救贖工作。

最后,我們認為,結束對婦女和兒童的性暴力是結束性別屠殺的一個重要方面。這是當代傳福音的前沿,是女童之聲工作的一個重要組成部分。我們在努力工作使教會聖潔,使教會能夠對性侵犯的受害者伸出援助之手,來幫助恢復她們的生活,價值和尊嚴。這是我們的一貫做法:以耶穌的名,單單地愛她!當我們彼此相愛時,世界就會知道我們是耶穌的門徒。

Open Letter Regarding Yuan Zhiming’s Resignation

All Girls Allowed Board---In Jesus’ name simply love her!

March 3, 2015

We are pleased that the China Soul Board has taken action and removed Yuan Zhiming from ministry. We believe this is the first step in acknowledging his culpability and is vindication for Ling and perhaps others who are victims of Yuan’s immoral and evil actions. It had been our hope that Mr. Yuan would have respond with humility to these charges by repenting of his actions and entering into a biblically-defined restoration process. Having refused to take either of these constructive steps, it is only appropriate for him to remove himself from public ministry in response to the numerous and serious charges against him.

We encourage the China Soul Board to follow through on their commitment to carefully and fully investigate all charges against Yuan Zhiming. We look for them to receive his full confession and repentance so his victims can obtain the justice they deserve and a process of restoration can begin for all. It takes great courage and strength for victims of sexual assault to go public so they deserve to be respected, heard, trusted and honored, rather than being harassed and intimated. Our hope and prayer is that China Soul will exercise due diligence in pursuing this matter so that Mr. Yuan will ultimately pursue a path of repentance and restoration rather than deny his actions and defame his victims.

We thank the 18 Chinese pastors who acted “as servant leaders responding to the Lord’s calling”. They have modeled to the world how God’s good shepherds lay down their lives for the sheep, to “bind up the injured and strengthen the weak… shepherd the flock with justice”. They courageously took on the task of forming an independent committee of inquiry and labored in love to bring forth the truth from all parties. Their courage, leadership, fairness and biblical process brought honor to our Lord Jesus and His church. They are heroes to all believers and to the victims who have suffered in silence for many years.

We understand this is a difficult time for the Chinese Christian community. We grieve for the pain and disappointment we are all experiencing. Let us not turn our pain into attacks against our sister Chai Ling, other victims or the 18 pastors. Let us obey the Lord’s call to pursue unity and purity in the church. The Sovereign Lord is able to work redemptively through these events to bring about reconciliation and restoration for all who humbly seek His mercy, and to strengthen His Church for His glory.

Finally, we do believe that ending sexual violence against women and children is one of the key aspects of ending Gendercide. It is on the frontier of modern day evangelism, and an important part of the work of All Girls Allowed. We are committed to make the church ready for the victims of sexual assault to be welcomed and to restore their life, value and dignity. This is one way to show the world our motto in practice: In Jesus’ name, simply love her! And by our love to one another, the world will know we are His disciples.
