ThM Special Lecture
宗改强调的五个“唯独”（Sola）– 高举唯独圣经、唯独信心、唯独恩典、唯独基督与唯独上帝的荣耀 – 是否适合今日汉语的情境？讲员将做出三方面的反思：首先，五个“唯独”的神学语言是否难免产生“排他”的神学思维？其次，“唯独”的教条式表达能否克服过度抽象、贬低实践的神学理性？最后，“唯独”的神学传统如何可能持续更新时下教会内在的生命与对外的使命？
Are the five “Sola”s emphasised by the Reformation – Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Solus Christus and Soli Deo Gloria – suitable for today’s Chinese context? In the lecture, the speaker will surface three points for reflection: Firstly, does the theological language of the five “Sola”s inevitably lead to “exclusive” theological thinking? Secondly, can the dogmatic expressions of the “Sola”s overcome the problem of over-abstraction and the devaluation of praxis in theological reasoning? Finally, how can the theological tradition of the “Sola”s continue to renew the life and commission of the contemporary church?
