短暫而豐盛的人生 楊景釗弟兄感恩見証分享(一)

	主啊,你世世代代做我們的居所。諸山未曾生出,地與世界你未曾造成,從亙古到永遠,你是神。你使人歸於塵土,說:「你們世人要歸回。」在你看來,千年如已過的昨日,又如夜間的一更。你叫他們如水沖去,他們如睡一覺。早晨他們如生長的草,早晨發芽生長,晚上割下枯乾。我們因你的怒氣而消滅,因你的憤怒而驚惶。你將我們的罪孽擺在你面前,將我們的隱惡擺在你面光之中。(詩篇九十:一至八)
	「白駒過隙」,用以描繪人生命之短暫。「人生不如意事,十常八九」用以描繪活著而離不開各樣的勞苦愁煩。「人死如燈滅」,用以描繪人離世時,猶如被吹熄的燈火,像輕煙般消失。如果人的一生真的由這三幅圖畫所組成,那真是一幅非常灰暗,令人無語不安與沮喪的畫面。		
	假設你今天開始被人稱「老年人」,對「白駒過隙」肯定有深刻感受,回頭一看時間真的過得很快。對「人生不如意事」相信亦有同感。對「人死如燈滅」雖然你今天依然活著,但見過不少「如燈滅」的人和情景。對於上述的三幅圖其中「白駒過隙」與「人死如燈滅」都是非人力所能改變。但「人生不如意事,十常八九」似乎全與人類有關,難道人真的離不開「勞苦愁煩」?	
	那就讓我們進行一些觀察:一般基下層家庭,收入微薄,早出晚歸,僅夠糊口,居斗室之中,再無力作出優閒活動。中上層白領或甚至是菁英者,收入不菲。可是職場上,不論是職位或人事上競爭在所難免。回到家裡,亦可能有夫妻不和、兒女叛逆、婆媳不睦、姑嫂有怨……等不能向外人道的家事。
	至於那些富貴人家,當看到新聞版那些爭產案件時,可立刻聯想到那位富豪生前煩惱一定不少,兼且不容易解決,究竟他瞑目前是否仍然忐忑不安,就無法知曉了。任何一個社會大致上都包括了上述三類人士,原來各有各的「勞苦愁煩」,祇是因為家醜不外揚,所以,人與人之間都覺得「別人都是活得很好」。		
	「人的一生」是一個很大很嚴肅的話題,那以甚麼為基點去作出研究呢?相信以人從何而來為開始應該是一個合理的方向。那麼,從「進化」或「創造」中找出答案是惟一的選擇。先談『進化論』開始,這一類書本實在非常之多,現在就讓蘇緋雲博士的《創造或進化》提供一個非常扼要的介紹:	
	●一般來說,『進化論』認為,在很久以前,地上本來沒有生命,但是,由於原子互撞,偶然合成大一點的化合物,這樣繼續下去,就有了第一個細胞。這第一個細胞又偶然分成兩個細胞,一直繁殖下去,便成了「簡單」的生物。這些簡單的生物在物競天擇的情況下,就進化成比較複雜的生物,由海底動物,進而進化為魚,隨後是兩棲動物,進而是爬蟲、鳥或哺乳動物,最後變成人。		
	●   進化的學說所看重的是沒有頭腦,沒有設計,適者生存。哪一個是適合生存的呢?能夠生存的,就是適合生存;他生存,所以他必定是適合生存;因為他適合生存,所以他生存。		
	按照上文的陳述,宇宙萬物全來自:偶然,巧合或機遇,之後便是適者生存的結果。其中完全與「有智慧的設計」無關。看到這裡不期然為人類的幸運感到高興,因為萬一當年的偶然巧合,和機遇落在猴子身上時,今日的世界猴子便是主人,而人類則是與其他活物一起被稱之為動物了!	
	另一位聖經學者範學德對《進化論》又有令人戰戰競競的觀點,他在《我為什麼不願成為基督徒》是這樣說:「在這個罪惡的世界上,我為什麼要作好人?好人不是常常倒楣嗎?如果沒有上帝,如果人死後一了百了,沒有審判,在這短短的有生之年中,我為什麼要一再吃虧受苦呢?我為什麼不該盡情的吃喝嫖賭,玩樂享受、追逐名利,玩權弄術,坑蒙拐騙?教我作好人不是坑我害我嗎?我死後,哪怕洪水滔滔,不是更誠實嗎?」	人的思想異常複雜而且自私可以說是人的本性,所以像範學德所言的那一種「為所欲為」的人當然有。但是,不是這一種人的人似乎是更多。對自己明明是有利的何解不去做呢?		
	溫偉耀在他的《是否真有神的存在?》裡面提到「道德論證」是神存在的論證其中之一的論證。他說:「道德論證是嘗試從人具有道德判斷的事實,推演出一位終極掌管著賞善罰惡的主宰的存在。當我們觀察和反省人的生活和現象時,我們就會發現,人不僅懂得思考,有理性推理及計劃的能力,並且人有善、惡判斷的能力。我們發覺這個事實,在任何的民族、任何的文化、任何的時代都是普遍存在的。即是人有一種必然的、對道德要求的普遍現象。」	
	他又說:「無疑,不同的人往往有稍為不同高低的道德標準。但是善和惡的意識,卻肯定在任何人的身上或任何民族都是存在的。只要他是人,他就必然具有對善惡的判斷和反應,懂得去判別一件事情是善還是惡。」	   
        我們雖然以「白駒過隙」來形容短暫的人生,但對每一個人的人生而言,是非常之漫長,因為這就是他在世界上存活的一生。在這人生的道路上,不單只起伏不定,有時甚至有危機的出現。所以,人的思考其實是在不斷的改變,以不同的經歷建構出個人的人生觀、世界觀和價值觀。	
	在今日的世界,無神論可以說是佔大多數。其中最大的理由:『上帝』只是一個名詞而其實是不存在的。信上帝是不科學的迷信思維。筆者幾十年前讀中學時已認識聖經,當讀到:「起初,神創造天地………。神說:『要有光。』就有了光。……;神說:『諸水之間要有空氣,將水分為上下。』……;神說:『天下的水要聚在一處,使旱地露出來。』事就這樣成了……」(創世記第一章:一至九)簡單地說,就是上帝用『說話』創造一切。我當時對上帝創造的看法,就像是跟小孩子講神話故事。從此,上帝便在我的腦海中移除。	
	記得是一九六九年七月二十日,差不多全世界的人都圍在電視機前面,因為那是美國太空人踏足月球土地上的日子。雖然已看過地球的模樣,但是,從一個同是地球人在另外一個星球體上面舉起照相機為地球拍照,有一種非常真實的代入感。一個蔚藍色像圓球的物體懸掛在天空之中,真是美得不可方物,無法用文字形容。
	那時那刻我有強烈的詫異,甚至說有點恐慌,因為從月球望向這懸掛的球體,在球體上的東西都是「倒掛」著的,尤其水是非常重,為什麼它們都不跌出地球呢?物理教科書說是因為地心吸力。問題是:人是不是要上帝列出計算方程式,才相信宇宙一切都是由上帝創造的,如果用「說話」不是更快捷妥當嗎?	
	環顧今天,由於科技的發達和網絡資訊的迅速傳播,人開始認為人已掌控了一切,更認為人已瞭解世間的一切。其中更有一些政治人物,自認是天造英才,不單是帶領自己國家,更要控制全世界人類的命運。不過,根據歷史的記載,這一類瘋子總會出現,但是每次他們都以失敗告終。雖然如此,每次卻讓很多隻想過平安日子的國民和世人成為陪葬品!人只是人,這是一條金科玉律。上帝是全知和全能的創造主,同樣是一條金科玉律。我們如果想我們的一生活得平安喜樂,惟一的方法是讓自己謙卑下來,承認自己是一個普通人,你的謙卑會讓你得到你所期望的人生。(未完待續)
二○二二年十月廿九日
