根据享有盛誉的史学家蒋廷黻先生的《中国近代史大纲》一书,义和团运动纯粹是“反动势力总动员”,是慈禧太后在西方国家指责其镇压戊戌变法、囚禁光绪皇帝,要求其让光绪复位、实行变法的大背景下,对西方恼羞成怒,又无法调动李鸿章、张之洞等务实派大臣,于是煽动义和拳对外国人大肆打砸抢烧、攻打大使馆、屠杀基督徒的史上罕见的反人类反西方反文明的浩劫。但是一百年后的今天,这样的浩劫还在中国程度不同地上演。

 

9月以来,中共为转移国内矛盾、为召开18大统一人心,也出于党内激烈权斗的必然需要,将中国人的注意力再次引到反日抗日,要求归还钓鱼岛上。其实钓鱼岛问题在1970年代美国将托管权转给日本的时候就已经基本定型了,如果有争议,中、日、美三国可以坐下来谈。多年以来,钓鱼岛事实上成为中共收放自如的棋子,放出来是为了巩固内政、同仇敌忾,收回去是位子权力当然重于疆土,一个小岛与我何干。

 

跟义和拳匪受清廷操纵一样,这次遍及几十个城市的游行示威、打砸抢烧,无一不留下中共操纵的痕迹。警察在全力为游行示威护航,游行示威除了有众多围绕游行队伍多于民众的军警外,游行队伍中还有为数不少的便衣,这样的情况下发生砸车、纵火,显然是警察默许、纵容甚至直接参与的。砸车严重的西安,已经有警察被网民认出穿便衣指挥砸车。据博讯网披露,沧州的反日示威由当地的交警支队长组织。

 

跟义和拳匪的野蛮暴力一样,西安、长沙、青岛、苏州等地同步发生的反日活动中,伴随着大量严重暴力事件,让中国民众倍感恐慌。成千上万的日系车被砸,还殃及韩系车;成百上千的日系饭馆、超市被砸被抢,还殃及新加坡、美国店;数十家家日资工厂企业被砸被烧,众多在华日本人和无辜的中国人也被打伤打残。

 

跟义和拳匪的思维理念一致,“扶清灭洋”、极左到底,这次游行中出现了大量毛泽东的画像和毛时代军人的队伍,也出现了呼唤“当代毛泽东”薄熙来复出的大量标语,毛左势力借反日僵尸还魂、大有再度复兴、继续完成“唱红打黑”大业的气势。分析人士认为,政法委、中宣部等中共极左势力,是该次运动的幕后策划者,目的是18大全面夺权。毛左再次复兴意味着中共内部的极左势力将籍民族主义全面掌权、对内残酷镇压亲西方的自由派人士、对外要全面地挑战西方各国、谋求法西斯强国的霸主地位。

 

跟义和拳匪的的逻辑一样,这次以反日开始的暴力行动会以反对整个西方、反对西方价值观(主要是基督教和普世价值)而告终。因为要彻底反日就要反美(日美安保协议永远存在),反美就要反西方,反西方政治遏制、经济渗透就要反西方的文化渗透,而西方的文化渗透无非就是民主自由的普世价值和该价值的基本来源基督教。当年义和团就凭此逻辑反对所有与西方有关的事物,如电杆、铁路、邮局甚至火柴,并且屠杀残余的维新变法人士,尤其是对基督教、天主教人士格杀勿论,据记载拳匪以“杀猪(主耶稣谐音)宰羊(喻指基督徒)”的名义屠杀了240多名外国传教士及2万多名中国基督徒。

 

不仅义和团时期,当民族主义压倒一切时,普世价值、基督教价值观就被搁置一边,著名学者李泽厚对上个世纪二三十年代历史的诠释是“救亡压倒启蒙”。其实那个时期除了大家不讲人权、民主之外,“非基督教运动”也使基督教远离中国主流意识形态,所以那个时期同样也可以诠释为:民族主义压倒普世文明;共产主义压到基督教;无神论压到有神论和宗教信仰。

 

这次的反日活动虽然还没有发展到反西方文化和基督教的地步,但需要中国的自由知识分子和基督徒都要思考的一个问题是:拳匪之乱已经百年了,为什么国情竟然毫无改变:国人就那么轻易地被专制政权操纵,国人就那么轻易地被民族主义、集体主义注入热情,国人就那么轻易地反日反美反西方?极端野蛮的民族主义,为何跟百年前一模一样,没有改变呢?

 

从1980年代知识分子们启蒙以来,个体主义、自由民主观念已经得到不少中国知识分子和中产阶级的认可,但是从部分人对毛泽东的持续崇拜、对薄熙来的持续反案、对民族主义的持续热情中,可以看出中国人整体的价值观比起1980年代,改变不大。这是否是对自由知识分子多年来宣传普世价值观的一次测验和否定呢?

 

基督教是亲西方的、倡导普世主义、最无民族主义的信仰,如圣经中多次提到无论是犹太人、希腊人、外邦人都会成为神的选民,“因为神不偏待人”(圣经 罗马书2:11)。改革开放后,中国基督徒有了长足的发展,但是经过30多年的发展,号称近亿的基督徒对国民素质、文化更新到底有多大的贡献?

 

很多中国基督徒不关心政治,是独善其身的自修者。唱红打黑、毛左猖獗,基督徒不发声;打砸抢烧、反美反日,基督徒装作不知,等待中国基督徒们的命运也许是1930年代“非基督教运动”的后果——反西方反现代文明的所谓唯物主义、共产主义占据知识分子和多数国人的脑子,进而成为“国教”,基督教被弃绝、所有宣教士被赶出中国、中国基督教会被中共全面控制。

 

中国基督徒不仅不能与那些反日反美的反西方人士同流合污,而且必须要在危及基督教价值观情况下发声,这个价值观就是人类平等,全面吸收人类文明,对西方文明和基督教全面开放,而义和团、红卫兵、毛左等都是历史的垃圾;爱国贼们是阻碍中国进步的大障碍,基督徒是普世主义者,应该是爱国贼和极端民族主义的天敌。

 

当然,极端民族主义者和毛左们,都是要“玩火者必自焚”。就像清末的义和团运动,最终招致西方国家联手占领清廷,那些顽固地反西方反现代文明的大臣、义和拳匪们,都得到了应有的惩罚,而且不久之后,清王朝就彻底在历史上画上了句号。所以,提出普世价值的中国知识分子和基督徒们,也要充满信心,持续地进行普世价值传播工作,相信现代义和团必然灭亡,相信我们定会担负起历史的使命,不让拳匪之乱在中国重演。

Saving Pastor Gong

Please Help Saving jailed Pastor Gond of Huanan Chruch

~~~

Since Dec 2, 2012, my father Pastor Shengliang Gong had High Blood Pressure and Cerebral Infraction, but he never got the proper medical checkup and adequate treatments. Consequently, my father’s illness got worse and worse. More than once my father almost fell to the ground during last November.

Finally when he got the checkup on November 26th 2013, the doctor said my father’s illness was not very optimistic. He was having Cerebral Infraction, Encephalatrophy, Brain Lesions and Leukoaraiosis, etc. The doctor said that my father needs to have checkup every three months. So we repeatedly requested the prison officials to perform checkup accordingly, once every three months. The prison said that they had one done on April 17th, but refused to release the hospital’s medical treatments records and conclusions to neither my father nor the family members. They would not make any specific statements about my father’s illness. Now, my father and our family have no ideas about the level of his illness.

       Since my father illness, previously we could buy some appropriate medicines for him according to his known conditions pieced together from oral communications of diagnosis, after consulting with doctors. Though this won’t amount to totally healing, it was the only way our family could do for him under the circumstances. But now, as the prison withholding medical records from us, we are unable to know his condition and thus cannot providing suitable medicines for him-the very minimum request was denied of us.

       The inadequate medical treatments within the prison cannot give my father prompt and sufficient treatments. Yet the prison won’t send him to hospitals outside for necessary treatments and regular checkups, causing further serious damages to his health. The prison won’t allow him the fundamental human rights; they also deprive his right to know about his illness condition. The prison as law enforcement agency behaves illegally. Effectively, they are directly pushing my gravely ill father to dead end street of death.

       I appeal to the international communities concerning my father’s health and human rights conditions. Please join us to rally for my father and our family’s rights to medical records and the right to know the situation of my father’s sickness; also his right to have regular medical treatments, thereby saving his life and protect his fundamental rights!!

三化異象
中國福音化
  五十年來,中國大陸的信徒從不到100萬(1949)遽增到八千萬(2000),這是中國五千年來難得的宣教黃金時期;在中國教會裡,也普遍呈現「羊在找牧人」的現象,上帝為中國敞開了大門!現在就是「中國福音化」的關鍵時刻!
教會國度化
  教會是基督榮耀的身體,是一切事工的根柢。今日世界各地的基督教宗派都去中國宣教,如何促使海外教會超越宗派主義,中國教會突破山頭主義,共同營造具有「國度觀」的宣教事工,將是中國教會拓展生根的關鍵時刻!
文化基督化
  1989年「六四」之後,大批的中國知識分子信主,他們承認了理性的局限性,也不再提「反宗教、反帝國主義」,轉而思考基督教對中國現代化有何貢獻?如今正是因勢利導,以基督思想來影響中國文化,以聖經真理來更新中國文化的關鍵時刻!
