"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
我们的父要我们完全圣洁,象他自己圣洁一样。他知道炉火的价值。我们都知道金属越贵重,化炼越费力——它们必须经过烈火,因为烈火能叫它们熔化;只有在熔化的时候,才能把掺杂在里面的杂质分别出来;也只有在熔化的时候,才能把它们造成新的模型。老练的化炼师是一直坐在坩埚旁边,从不走开的,他惟恐热度一高就会叫金属受损。他把最后的渣滓从面上撇去;一看见自己的脸从其上反照出来,他就立刻把炉火熄灭。——斐尔逊
