An open letter to Mr. Obama
Translator:laoli
 
Hi, respected Mr. Obama!

My heart was shock by the photo that you sworn the U.S. president when you were first elected and put your hand on the Bible,it was not long time after I had been a religious investigator.I was a little worldly: the U.S. president is not stupid,he believes in God!As an ordinary person,I will ponder and seek instead of puffed up.Thank you for your witness for God as a respected president!

As a president,some others maybe suspected if it’s a political skepticism.Please forgive a native Chinese who has this doubt!I did not ponder until I saw all the experts and scientists who surveyed the crashed accident of STS challenger, swearing while putting their hands on the Bible:I see that a person would responsible for God,and this God is conscience lived in his heart.It’s the most fundamental that one must be responsible for his own life and heart!

I happened to “hear” a story from someone else,it’s about one of his friens:after a fire in a drpartment,the police asked a Chinese student to write down the list of losses,and he was told that he would never be suspected whether he had added anything else.Yeah,I understand that it’s normal in a Christian faith country. If you add something else, others may never know except youself(God knows better).A life individual to God must be responsible for his own decision:add something or not?One must be ultimately borned by himself and confessed to God about the consequences of this choice.This is the basis and fundamental for people to trust each other.

It seems that I will cotton up to you to write to you. But it’s objectively indeed.You are a president,while I am a ordinary Chinese citizen,but I firmly believe we can communicate because we are all Christians in front of the Bible.The reason why I wrote a letter to you,is omly ecause of my respeceted writer—Mr. Gu xiaojun said that he would think of to be a religious investigator if president Obama will introduce him in an article.

Mr. Gu xiaojun’s article have been blocked,and his fundamental starting point is—fair is the first human values.I believe that you were always worried and grieved about all kinds of killing each other occured in U.S. besides other places aroud the world.Gu xiaojun’s articles have gave the answer:fair is missing.Though he is a “gentile”of Christian faith,while it’s obvious that he had a impartial and mercy in his heart ,and he can tell right from wrong in his articles.It was extremely injustices that his articles were blocked even in U.S.,the city of God.It could not be relieved!In the Bible the apostle Paul said:“when Gentiles, who do not possess the law, do instinctively what the law requies, these, though not having the law, are a law to themselves. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, to which their own conscience also bears witness;and their conflicting thoughts will accuse or perhaps excuse them.”If we are Christians, it’s a heavenly gift of conscience also bearing,we should be light and role modelfor gentile.we should ask ourselves when we turned a blind eye on someone if he is right and he has the wisdom of impartial.

On the other hand, as Christians,we have the obligations and responsibilities to pass gospel.Mr. Gu xiaojun offered an olive branch,he hope to be a Christian religious investigator.I hope Mr. Obama would like to be his referrer,it would be a great cause for rejoicing!I thank God for this thing.

This letter dragged so long time,one reason is ,I was busy working;the other one is,it’s a very difficulty for me.You know that “religious investigator” is not a “recommended” in general sense.herein lies the most difficulty to me.Religious investigator is a person who has a spontaneous spiritual lnging,resonance and pursuitafter hearing the truth,only he can get the good fortune who has a humble heart.I thout it carefully,to recommended him anyway.Mr. Gu talked about question of faith in one of his article,he could adopt some of my opinion humbly,he was sincere, open-minded.He should not be absent from the religious onvestigator.

In the issue of fair,I had read a word with tears in the Bible: “But let justice roll down like waters,

and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”Everthing will lost significance whitout fair and righteousness.We would like to refueling and blessings for Gu xiaojun.Because,he is on the right way!

 
Best sishes to you!

给奥巴马先生的一封公开信
 
尊敬的奥巴马先生,
 
您好!
 
您第一次当选,手摁圣经宣誓就职美国总统的照片深深震
 
撼了我的心,那时我做慕道友的时间还不长。当时想得比
 
较世俗:美国总统不笨不傻,信仰上帝。我作为一个普通
 
人,也该深思并寻求,而不是自高自大。谢谢你做为受人
 
尊重的总统对上帝所做的美好见证。
 
 
您作为总统,手摁圣经,在一些人眼里,可能会有政治作
 
秀的怀疑。原谅一个土生土长什么都怀疑的中国人这种论
 
断吧!直到看到调查挑战者号载人火箭升空失事的专家he
 
科学家为自己的结论或论断手摁圣经起誓的情景,也启迪
 
我深思:我明白了,一个人要为上帝负责,而这个上帝就
 
是住在心里的良知。一个人只要对自己的生命和内心负责
 
才是最根本的
 
 
 
碰巧“听”到一个人讲到她的一个朋友的一个事,一个中
 
国留学生在美国的公寓发生火灾,警察让他写损失清单,
 
写什么就是什么,不会怀疑或再费警力侦查他多写什么。
 
是的,在信仰基督的国度,我理解这是很正常的,多写什
 
么,别人可能永远不会知道,但自己内心一辈子都知道
 
(神更知道)。一个向神的生命个体,是要对自己的这个
 
内心的决定负责的:多写还是如实写损失?这个抉择的后
 
果,也是自己最终要承担的,是要最后向神交待的。这就
 
是人与人互相能够信任的基础和根本。
 
 
写这么多,似乎是在和您套近乎。也确实是的。您贵为总
 
统,我为中国的一介平民,但在圣经面前,您手摁圣经,
 
相信您也是基督徒,在基督教友的层面上,我坚信是我们
 
是可以沟通的。为什么要给你写信,是出于我尊敬的顾晓
 
军先生有一篇文章,说如果美国总统奥巴马引荐他,他会
 
考虑做基督慕道友。
 
 
顾晓军先生的文章被封杀,他文章的根本出发点是公正是
 
人类的第一价值观,相信全世界范围内包括美国发生的各
 
种各样人类互残的悲剧也时时让您揪心和悲痛,顾晓军先
 
生也多有这样的分析文章:公正缺失。顾晓军现在虽然是
 
没有基督信仰的“外帮人”,但他的公正心﹑怜悯心﹑辨
 
别是非之心是有目共睹的,他的文章被封杀,就是极端不
 
公正的待遇,他的文章在号称神的国度上帝之城美国一些
 
媒体上的遭遇也是让人不能释怀的。圣经里使徒保罗说过
 
“没有律法的外帮人若顺着本性行律法上的事,他们虽然
 
没有律法,自己就是自己的律法。这是显出律法的功用刻
 
在他们心里,他们的是非之心同做见证,并且他们的思念
 
互相较量,或以为是,或以为不是”。若说我们是基督
 
徒,应该在是非之心上是有属天的恩赐,应该做外帮人的
 
光和榜样,如果人家说得有理且具有公正之心的智慧,却
 
视而不见,是不是我们该扪心自问了。
 
 
 
从另一层面,作为基督徒,是有传福音的义务和责任的。
 
现在顾晓军先生竟然自己伸出了橄榄枝,希望做基督慕道
 
友,希望奥巴马先生引荐,做为基督徒,这是多大的美事
 
啊!您就快快成就这美事吧!我为这事感谢神。
 
 
这封信拖了太久,一方面是自己工作忙,另一方面是写得
 
非常困难。因为“慕道友”确实不是一般意义上“引荐”
 
的。我写这篇文章最困难的就在于这个地方。慕道友是一
 
个人听到真理后的一种自发的心灵的渴慕﹑共振和追求,
 
这是一颗谦卑的心才有的福气。但我仔细思考后,我觉得
 
说引荐也无妨,顾先生在一篇文章中谈到关于信仰的问
 
题,他能谦逊地采纳我的一些意见,他是真诚的,是虚怀
 
若谷的。他不应该再缺席慕道友了。
 
 
 
在公正的问题上,曾经含着泪读到圣经的一句话:“愿公
 
平如大水滚滚,使公义如江河滔滔。”没有公平和公义,
 
什么都没有了意义。愿我们为顾晓军加油和祝福!因为他
 
走的是正路!
 
 
祝好!
