瞄准半岛43个巫统议席,刘镇东形容为变天关键

刘镇东

来届大选跫音渐近,行动党政治教育主任刘镇东指出,共有43个巫统议席乃是兵家必争之地,而只要攻下30至40个巫统议席,就可能完成政党轮替。
刘镇东发文告说,这43个巫统议席都位于半岛。
“巫统的88席中,有14席在沙巴,1席在纳闽,其余的73席在半岛。半岛73席中,有30席可说是经过巫统‘特别设计’,在最坏的情况下也不会败阵的铁堡垒,剩下的43席是我们必须火力全开的战场。”
“希望联盟与土著团结党必须准备就绪,迎战巫统-伊党-国阵的布局。让巫统输剩30到40个国席,成为新的在野党,并不是不可能。”
巫统会否成为在野党?
刘镇东表示,砂拉越的朋友们经常问他,巫统会否东渡接管砂拉越州政府,并像1994年以后的沙巴那样统治砂州。
他说,这样的担忧并非凭空而来,尤其是现任砂州首长阿邦佐哈里与巫统的关系匪浅。
不过,他说,面对这种提问,他会反问大家两个问题,即巫统能否熬过来届大选,或巫统会否成为一个新的在野党?
“很多人普遍认为,巫统无可匹敌,永远不会被打倒。的确,要让一个掌权超过60年的执政党下台,我们需要一股相当强大的海啸。”
纳吉领导下巫统最脆弱
但他强调,这并不非不可能,而2008与2013年就已见证过政治海啸的发生。
“首先,自独立到2004年大选,巫统透过联盟/国阵执政,并得到可观的非巫裔选民支持。然而,巫统在2005年开始走向右倾,大打马来人至上的种族牌,导致半岛其他国阵成员党逐渐失去支持,马华公会、国大党及民政党在2008与2013年大选兵败如山倒。”
“第二,巫统在2013年后没办法扩张基本盘,因此拉拢伊斯兰党成为了一个很好的选择。巫统希望暗中与伊党串通,将社会撕裂成穆斯林与非穆斯林对立的局面,巫统与伊党的非正式结盟可以因此赢到足够的议席成立联合政府。然而, 巫统与伊斯兰党的合作衍生的问题,是半岛的非巫裔选民,还有沙巴与砂拉越的多数选民不能接受巫统。”
“第三,首相纳吉个人在2013年大选比巫统对马来人更有号召力,但一马公司丑闻爆发以来,加上糟透的经济政策如消费税、汽油上涨,还有削减医疗和教育等公共开支,纳吉得到的支持已不大如前,甚至沦为巫统的包袱。对纳吉感到不满的巫统领袖与党员,另外成立了土著团结党,让在野党如今可以接触很多之前走访无门的地区。”
“简单来说,纳吉领导下的巫统,是巫统最为脆弱的时候。”
吉打中间选民如造王者
根据刘镇东,国阵在2013年大选赢得的133席当中,有60席的得票率低于55%,是国阵的边际选区。
他续说,这60席当中,甚至当中有16席的得票率还低于50%。
“以柔佛为例,只要有6%的中间选民转向支持在野党,我们就可以拿下国阵至少11个国会议席,包括柔南的巴西古当(国阵得票49.6%)、蒲来(51%)、地不佬(51%)、丹绒比艾(55%)和新山(55.7%);柔北的拉美士(49.5%)、昔加末(50.3%)、礼让(50.7%)、麻坡(51%)、士基央(53.2%)和巴莪。”
“在吉打,国阵的8个边际选区为日莱(50.2%)、居林-万拉巴鲁(51%)、本同(51.5%)、马莫(51.9%)、华玲(52.5%)、锡(52.6%)、尤仑(52.8%)及巴东得腊(54.6%)。根据地方民调,在野党(尤其是与土著团结党结盟后)甚至有机会拿下浮罗交怡与古邦巴素。吉打也是一个非常关键的战场,中间选民左右着10个国会议席的去向。”

新春探讨福禄寿

左起:福禄寿三星

2017年1月25日
作者:陈亚伦牧师

        在许多华人的家中,他们喜欢在家摆设三个公仔,即是“福禄寿”三星。福禄寿,人人向往求得,却不晓得表面的装潢并不等于它们会属于我们的。

        “福”在华人心中,是指没有界限的利益,是新春时不可或缺的祝贺语。只有这个字有着一幅“百福图”,兴奋中国人的创意。而许多家庭甚至把“福”字头尾倒贴,希望藉着“福倒”当意头为“福到”。“福”的一边是“一口田”,倒贴就没意思了。几千年来中国人以农耕为养活,有田就有粮食,没田就没粮食。

        所以,广东人讲“食得是福”。人的最后一口气在其胃部,当一个人不能吃东西时就是他来到人生尾端的时刻了!因此我们必须关注自己的健康,一个人即使付得起山珍海错,如果身体欠佳不能吃东西,只能说缺福!

        另外,“祝福”也是常用的好意头,意思说我们希望别人得着福分。若自己要蒙福,必须先学习祝福别人。我们越嫉妒别人,自己越不蒙福,所以在新春时大家用许多祝福语。“祝福”和“赐福”有别,“祝福”犹如一种祷告,而“赐福”是上天赐予的。太古的中国人除了拜上天并没有其他膜拜对象。因此他们的象形文字“福”的一边是“示”字,即是指“神”的意思。既此,“一口田”若没有神(示)赐予的话并不是“福”,所以“人定胜天”是错误的宣告,我们要谦卑承认我们需要看天找食。

        “禄”也是一种“福”,它是指肉身外表的荣华富贵。广东人说:“食得是福,着(穿)得是禄。”当然有钱的可以穿名牌丝绸等名贵服装,没钱的就只好简朴一点。不过这不等于后者就是输家,因为人的生命不在乎家道丰富。他得着全世界,心灵却空虚,对他有何益处?

        主耶稣在世时,看到人为生活烦恼,要吃什么穿什么的!祂劝人何必为衣服忧虑时,就以以色列最富有的所罗门王为例,说他最威荣的时候所穿的,却比不上田野的百合花和草。一天我发觉含羞草的花朵其实很美丽呢!即使它不开花,“丑怪”的含羞草,基因它是真的花草,所以它比人造的花草乃更美丽呢!

        “禄”的一边同样是“示”字,换句话说,“禄”其实是指“尊荣”,即当上天用尊荣当作衣服穿在人的身上时才是“禄”

        “寿”即指长命,许多人都希望活到长寿,生日时这么祝贺,新春时也这么祝贺。怎样才算长寿?用华人的俗语可知道:“人生七十古来稀!”人类始祖亚当活到930岁,几千年来寿命越来越短,因为人的罪性腐蚀人的肉体。即使今天科技和医学大大促进人的寿命,人平均的年龄乃是70岁。

        长寿是上天所赐的,长寿必须有健康才是福。今天我们受太多因素影响我们的健康,最恐怖的事情就是人的罪性,为了利润,在生产过程中加入了各种毒素,防不胜防,导致人类患上致命的疾病。无论如何,家人和亲朋戚友经常是我们给予祝福长寿的对象。要紧的是长寿不能单方面祷告上天来保佑,我们自己也必须付上代价的,包括起居饮食须有节制,勤力运动,心平气和等。在此我祝福大家新春得蒙福禄寿。

Prophecy over Malaysia by Cindy Jacobs on 16 August 2016

23 August 2016

Prophecy overMalaysia by Cindy Jacobs on 16/08/2016 @Impact Conference 2016, Jakarta, Indonesia.


There's a great awakening coming to Malaysia. A great awakening. And the anointing for 24 hours prayer is coming upon you. You are going to build prayer towers. You are going to build prayer towers. You will restore the tabernacle of David. And the Lord says, This is the great season of restoration. 

And there will be great unity that comes to the church of Malaysia. And the pastors of many denominations will come together, says the Lord. And the Lord says, look to Eastern Malaysia, for that is the key. That is the key. I am going to start a fire there. A fire that burns and burns in the East is going to spread across the whole nation, says the Lord. Hallelujah. God bless you.

Prophecy over Malaysia by Cindy Jacobs on 9 July 2016

23 August 2016

Prophecy over Malaysia by Cindy Jacobs on July 9, 2016 at San Jose Marriott Hotel in Costa Rica:


Cindy (Middle) prophesied to Malaysian representative 
Brother and Mrs Tan Tek Seng


This is the word for Malaysia. The Lord says there is also going to be a great move of unity that will come to East Malaysia and the rest of the nation. The Lord shows me that the pastors and the leaders and the business leaders will come together and God is going to begin to breakdown traditional walls, walls that have been so high even between denominations that some would say there can never to togetherness, there can never be unity.

That the Lord says that the church of Malaysia is going to come into a tremendous new unity. There is going to be Koinonia and there is going to be such a love. And the Lord says as this happened I will begin to heal the nation of Malaysia. Also says the Lord that part of the reason there has not been able to have a greater healing of Malaysia itself is because the church needs to come into more unity. Not that there isn't some unity but a greater level of unity, says the Lord. And the Lord says also the prayer movement you are doing is a great job, and the Lord is going to bring unity among the prayer movements also. For there are many prayer movements but they are not always in unity. They are praying the same things but they are not always praying in unity.

The Lord shows me there are many prayer towers that are going be built in Malaysia, and the whole movement will begin to build these prayer towers. And I see to the business leaders, God is going to give you a heart to help fund these prayer towers. And the intercessors are crying out to God but they don't have a home, they don't have a place to go. And the Lord shows me in strategic places in Malaysia, God is going to raise up these 24/7 prayer towers, some of them are quite small now, but actually buildings are going to be built, like some in Indonesia and others. But it is going to happen because *there is going to come a cry coming out of Malaysia that will heal Asia says the Lord*.

Assemblies of God 2015 Statistics Released, Growth Spurred by Ethnic Transformation

June 24, 2016. 10:14 pm.
The Assemblies of God is one of the few major denominations in the United States to show continuing growth. But the real story is the ethnic transformation of the Assemblies of God. It is becoming less white and more reflective of the ethnic, linguistic and social diversity that exists in the global church.
When the Assemblies of God (AG) released its 2015 statistical reports this month, the press release noted that the denomination’s number of U.S. adherents had grown for 26 consecutive years. In 2015, the AG showed growth of 1.4% to 3,192,112 U.S. adherents. This was almost double the growth rate of the U.S. population, which increased by 0.77%.
The number of U.S. churches also showed growth (from 12,849 to 12,897, up 0.4%), as did the numbers of members (up 0.3%), ministers (up 0.5%), and major worship service attendance (up 1.7%). Statistics for other key indicators of church health–including conversions and Spirit baptisms and water baptisms–have not yet been released.
Much of the numerical growth in the Assemblies of God in recent decades has been among ethnic minorities. From 2001 to 2015, the number of AG adherents increased by 21.5%. During this period, the number of white adherents decreased by 1.6% and the number of non-white adherents increased by 76.8%. From 2014 to 2015, the percentage of white adherents dropped from 57.6% to 57.2%. It should be noted that the number of white adherents in the U.S. includes quickly-growing constituencies of immigrants from places such as the former Soviet Union and Romania. Without these new white immigrants, the white constituency in the Assemblies of God would be falling even more quickly.
The growth of the Assemblies of God is in marked contrast to most mainline Protestant denominations in the U.S., which have witnessed significant numerical declines in recent decades. From 1975 to 2015, the Presbyterian Church (USA) lost 56% of members; United Church of Christ lost 48%; The Episcopal Church lost 36%; the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America lost 30%; and the United Methodist Church lost 27%. Others showed increases, including the Southern Baptist Convention (20%) and the Roman Catholic Church (42%). During the same period, the Assemblies of God grew by 158%, from 1,239,197 adherents in 1975.
While mainline denominations have been declining for decades, in recent years some evangelical groups, such as the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), have also begun to decline. SBC membership has decreased for nine straight years, prompting some pundits to predict the slow death of evangelicalism. Others have pointed out that Pentecostal and non-denominational churches show continuing growth. Faith trends expert Ed Stetzer has argued that American Christianity is undergoing “evangelicalization,” noting that the percentage of Americans who identify as evangelical or born-again is increasing. And much of that growth can be attributed to soaring numbers of ethnic minorities in churches.
In 2015, over 42% of U.S. Assemblies of God adherents were non-white. This is comparable to the ethnic diversity in the U.S. Catholic Church. According to arecent Pew study, 41% of U.S. Catholics are now racial and ethnic minorities (up from 35% in 2007). The study also revealed that 24% of evangelical Protestants (up from 19%) and 14% of mainline Protestants (up from 9%) are also racial and ethnic minorities.
The ethnic breakdown of the AG in 2015 showed significant diversity: Asian/Pacific Islander (4.8%); Black (9.7%); Hispanic (23.0%); Native American (1.5%); White (57.2%); and Other/Mixed (3.9%). These stats suggest that the AG closely mirrors the ethnic makeup of the U.S. population as a whole. The 2010 U.S. census revealed the following racial breakdown of the U.S. population: Asian/Pacific Islander (5%); Black (12.6%); Hispanic (16.3%); Native American (0.9%); White (63.7%); and Other /Mixed (6.2%).
The AG districts with the greatest percentage growth in the number of adherents from 2010 to 2015 are as follows: National Slavic (152%), Midwest Latin American (58%), North Dakota (56%), Minnesota (55%), German (51%), Korean (33%), Texas Louisiana Hispanic (29%), Hawaii (29%), South Texas (26%), and Brazilian (24%). Due to the changing borders of the Hispanic districts, which doubled from seven to fourteen in the past six years, data for most of these districts was unavailable for purposes of comparison.
The AG’s growth in America is partly due to immigration. The Assemblies of God is a global church. The Assemblies of God reported 67,992,330 adherents worldwide in 2015. About 1% of the world’s population is AG. Fewer than 5% of AG adherents worldwide live in the U.S. Pentecostals who move to America from other regions of the world often bring with them a faith, burnished by persecution and deprivation, that is an important part of their identity. Pentecostal refugees who move to America are like pollen scattered by a strong wind — they plant churches wherever they happen to land. Strong African, Slavic, Asian, Pacific Islander, and Hispanic AG churches are taking root in American soil, and their congregations sing, preach, and testify in the tongues of their native countries.
Interestingly, this demographic shift is also helping to usher in a global re-alignment of Christianity. Anglican, Presbyterian, and Methodist Christians in Africa, Asia, and Latin America are generally evangelical in belief, if not Pentecostal in worship, and often have much more in common with their brothers and sisters in the Assemblies of God than they do with liberal members of their own denominations in the West.
The Assemblies of God is growing in America, due largely to a transformative demographic shift that has been underway for decades. The founding fathers and mothers of the Assemblies of God laid the foundation for this ethnic shift when they committed the Assemblies of God in November 1914 to “the greatest evangelism that the world has ever seen.” In 1921 the Assemblies of God adopted the indigenous church principle as its official missions strategy, in order to better carry out world evangelism. The implementation of this strategy — which recognizes that each national church is autonomous and not controlled by Western interests — resulted in the development of strong national churches and leaders. And now, in a fitting turn of events, those churches are sending missionaries to America.

ELCA: Formed in 1987 by a merger of three bodies: American Lutheran Church (1960-1987); Lutheran Church in America (LCA) (1962-1987); and Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches (AELC) (1976-1987). Tallies for 1975, 1980, and 1985 include stats of predecessor bodies. The AELC was a split from the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) in 1976. The 1975 tally does not include stats for LCMS churches which later formed the AELC, which has the effect of understating the ELCA’s loss from 1975 to the present.
PC(USA): Formed in 1983 by a merger of United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. and the Presbyterian Church in the United States. Tallies for 1975 and 1980 include stats of predecessor bodies.

City Harvest trial: 21 months to 8 years' jail for leaders

City Harvest trial: 21 months to 8 years' jail for leaders

Kong Hee was given the heaviest sentence of eight years' jail while Sharon Tan received the lightest at 21 months.

UPDATED: 20 Nov 2015 16:25

SINGAPORE: All six City Harvest Church (CHC) leaders were sentenced to between 21 months and eight years' jail on Friday (Nov 20).
Senior pastor Kong Hee was sentenced to eight years in prison. 
John Lam, former secretary of the church's management board, was sentenced to three years in prison. 
Sharon Tan, former finance manager, was sentenced to 21 months in prison. 
Board member Chew Eng Han was sentenced to six years in prison.
Senior pastor Tan Ye Peng was sentenced to five years and six months in prison.
Serina Wee, former finance manager, was sentenced to five years in prison. 
Bail for all six was extended, and the start of their sentence deferred until Jan 11 next year. 
Judge See Kee Oon, in sentencing the leaders, said that Kong Hee was the most culpable, followed by Tan Ye Peng, Chew Eng Han, Serina Wee, and John Lam. 
The six were found guilty on Oct 21 on all counts of criminal breach of trust, and falsification of accounts. They were in court on Friday for oral submissions. 
The leaders set up sham bond investments to fund the Crossover Project, the church's attempt to reach out to non-Christians by propelling Kong Hee's wife, Ho Yeow Sun, to pop stardom. Sun Ho, as she is commonly known, was not in court on Friday.
In court, the defence argued that the co-accused were merely following orders and acting in the interests of the church, and thus their sentences should be calibrated.
The prosecution team consisting of DPPs Mavis Chionh, Tan Kiat Pheng, Christopher Ong, Joel Chen, Jeremy Yeo and Eugene Sng, submitted that "each of the accused persons played their respective roles in a conspiracy with intent to cause wrongful loss to CHC and to defraud the auditors".
"They did not merely wait passively for Kong Hee to instruct them to carry out each specific act and deception needed to drive the conspiracy forward. They took their own initiative to deceive and mislead the trusting members of CHC where necessary, and cannot escape responsibility for those acts," said the prosecution.
After hearing the submissions from both sides, Judge See passed the sentence at 3pm.
"For us ex-members, we'll leave it to the judge. We have to respect the Honour's decision. As what the prosecutor says, we need to do it right now because it will have a great repercussion on other mega churches on what and what cannot be done," said a man who identified himself as a former City Harvest member.
After the sentencing, Sharon Tan's lawyer Paul Seah said that he and his client "will look at the judge's comments" and decide what to do next.
Tan Ye Peng's lawyer N Sreenivasan said that it has been a "trying time" for his client and that Tan "needs to pray, reflect and discern".

Prophecy on Malaysia during The Feast of Tabernacle in Kuching on 2015 Oct 3 & 4

10 Oct 2015


Allen Faubion
Glory of Zion International Ministries

Malaysia is a Rainbow Country, in a sense that it is a unique country with diversity. Its diversified races, religions and cultures existed in acceptance, harmony, tolerance and peace.

Malaya gained independence from the British in 1957 Aug 31. Few years later Singapore, Sarawak and Sabah gained independence too and joined Malaya in 1963 Sep 16, thus, the formation of Malaysia. Unfortunately, Singapore left in 1965 Aug 9 and became a Sovereign State.

Many citizens who lived through the old days before 1990 could testify the blessed state as a Malaysian in which every body could enjoy each other. Of course there was the dark age of 1969 May 13 incident which had marred our image. Nevertheless, it had little impact during the days of 1970s and 1980s.

It was sad that eventually the power that be had steered the country into racial and religious extremism. It was getting worse in the last ten years. It was especially serious in the past one year where the government have many unresolved scandals which plagued the country's currencies.

Let us continue to pray for Malaysia. We have confidence that God is in control of our nation. We love Malaysia, we don't play up racial issues. All of us are Malaysians no matter what race you are.

---------------------------------
The following is a prophecy for Malaysia.

Date: Oct 3 - 4
Venue: SIB, Kuching
Speaker: Rev. Allen Faubion

Disclaimer: Some people, including Christians, are always critical of Prophecies. They will question the position of the Prophets and labelled them as "Prophets of Doom". However, whether the prophecies came from God is not for us to judge. Prophecies always come with conditions. God requires the Christians to do their parts.

Prophecy for Malaysia:

God is government and the government of Malaysia is upon His shoulders. There will be signs of change at Putrajaya in the next 30 days.

Be ready for economic highs and economic lows for the nation of Malaysia in the coming months. We are in the economic lows, and have great anticipation for economic highs.

Economic highs are in days ahead.  God's plan for Malaysia, until the January of 2016, is for us to shift into the economic highs.

We decree & declare that the Malaysian’s political & economic structures will be adjusted abruptly to God's plan, and there will be no other substitute but everything Godly! Amen!

God's Word is everlasting, and we must stand firm upon HIS Word and the promises of Him for our nation.  God is our source.  We should be at the center of His heart and, above all, STAND FIRM in a time of the nationwide "shifting sand!"

The Year 5776 has the Divine double portion of grace to slay all giants in our path and all mountains looming over our life. Our weapons of warfare are the shofar and the Divine provision for year, a tent peg (Vav/Waw). 

No human has ever seen the fullness of what is ahead but Malaysia will enter her destiny destined by God. 

All will acknowledge our God is Sovereign! 

Amen!

解读“希望联盟”的成立

照片来源:Malaysiakini

2015年9月24日
作者:陈亚伦
-------------------------------------------------------
此文章也刊登于《星洲日报》的“言路版”,不过被它们删掉一些内容。
请阅:http://opinions.sinchew.com.my/node/37767?tid=38
-------------------------------------------------------

   公正党,行动党和国家诚信党已宣布组成“希望联盟”,取代已死亡的人民联盟(民联)。在我看来,此次行动稍微仓促了点,一次开会讨论就作出决定,真的快餐文化!为什么不再多开几次会讨论细节后才来宣布呢?

        首先,经过了几年的合作,为什么还用“Pakatan(联盟)”,而不用“Barisan(阵线)”呢?他们是否没有信心这结盟能长久呢?其二,“Harapan(希望)”乃等于摸索,并不是现实(reality)。譬如,我希望有一天去美国游玩,但我可能我一辈子都去不成。此联盟的组成就是带给人民希望赢得执政权,但希望总归希望,千万不要带给人民假希望,因为若天天都“希望”的话,迈入布城可能还是遥不可及!广东人的俗语或许是任何民族都适用的,即“不怕生坏命,最怕改错名!”

        其三,为什么走不出“安华当首相”的圈子呢?我对安华当首相没有意义,只是要看到此联盟有更大的宏图。A、要在国会修改宪法,除非联盟赢得三分之二议席,否则,以大马目前的政治不成熟理念,在野阵线肯定不会支持的。B、仓促把安华案件重审,使他无罪释放。以民联向来批评司法不独立的情况下,此举不也是在操纵司法吗?C、为什么公正党还有跟伊斯兰党藕断丝连?几个月前,伊党不是爆料它们不要安华,却要东姑拉沙里当首相的吗?

        其四、“Harapan”的中文要用那个词?用“希望”还是“盼望”?纵使我不喜欢这联盟的名称,我认为“盼望”比较恰当。还有,它的简称是什么,目前报纸和电子媒体各称各的。并且简称也须顾及汉语和其他方言的谐音,免得政敌用来开玩笑。

        结论时给我个人看法:1、不要一定要等安华了,别让人民认为你们没有人才。必须开始栽培年轻有为的领袖,凸显一些人的形象。2、在西马,民联在第13届大选并没输,只是被裁在东马手中。3、“希望联盟”必须忍痛摒弃伊党,公正党必须即刻作决定,以布局来届大选。伊党声称跟新联盟合作一对一对打国阵,请问怎样打?伊党肯定不会放弃目前跳槽诚信党议员的议席,若由伊党出征,华裔肯定不支持。在混合选区,若伊党,诚信党和巫统对打,非马来人就是造王者。那马来人选区三党对打怎么办?4、新联盟应该走的棋子应包括拉拢巫统的议员组成联盟,因为还有不少巫统党员是有正义的。要达成入主布城,“希望联盟”,你们还得靠巫统党员。不要再像上届满有信心,自以为是了!

        5、要拉拢东马的国阵政党加盟吗?是好主意,但我目前似乎看不到那些政党有任何动静。东马落后,地广人疏,人民多不能接触资讯。那里甚至有些选区约一千人就是一个国会选区,这情况就能以少少利益收买人心。啊,行动党的砂拉越梦和沙巴梦,我赞赏,但认为他们对来届大选可能白做了!但不要气馁,做多几届吧!

为何国旗横摆游行倒反? During march, why placed the national flag upside down when held horizontally?

遵照既定禮儀‧遊行國旗“倒反”美麗誤會


(雪蘭莪‧八打靈再也31日訊)針對網民質疑國慶慶典遊行中的國旗倒反一事,大馬國防衛隊總部公共事務主任巴克提亞諾解釋,國旗遊行的禮儀是,國旗綁在旗桿的那一邊(即藍底及6道紅白相間的橫條)永遠先行,飛揚處(14道紅白相間的橫條)則在後。
  • 國旗遊行的禮儀是,國旗綁在旗桿上的那一邊(藍底及6道紅白相間的橫條)永遠先行,而且貴賓看到的藍底必須是在上方。(圖:星洲日報)
他說,因此,當國旗遊行的方向是從貴賓台的左到右,從貴賓台處看,國旗的藍底在貴賓眼裡就變成出現在右上方。

“反之,當國旗遊行的方向是從右到左,從貴賓台處看就如同平日所見(藍底在左上方)。”
他也補充,國旗禮儀也要求國旗的藍底在貴賓眼裡必須是在上方,而不能在下方。

“當遊行隊伍經過貴賓台時,隊員就會不同幅度地舉高國旗,讓國旗向貴賓台呈傾斜狀。”

2015年08月31日 | 记者:郭振业 整理报导

净选盟4.0集会於昨天(30)晚上和平落幕。净选盟主办方宣称参与2天集会人数共超过50万人;各媒体与警方也提供自身估算数据,报导出席人数数据各不一。该如何计算出席集会者人数?本地艺人关德辉在面子书列出一道简单方程式计算集会人数的小撇步。
他於傍晚5时在面子书列出一道简单模式计算,並按照该方程式算出,出席人数共超过53万人。
「若一人佔地4方尺左右,一个长度2公里、宽度100米左右的人龙:
2000mX3.28英尺(ft)=6560英尺(ft)
100mX3.28英尺(ft)=328英尺(ft)
6560X328=2151680英尺(ft)²
2151680英尺(ft)² / 4 =537,920
基本上是超过53万的人潮。」
关德辉表示,以上数据还没加上这两天来来去去的短期参与者。他也称讚大马集会不比亚洲其它国际大城市如香港、臺湾、韩国等区域的示威活动逊色。
同时,他也祝愿马来西亚58岁生日快乐。
今年44岁的大马艺人关德辉是演员兼歌手,曾演过多部大马电影及电视剧,也曾赴香港发展,更发行过多张专辑。他的最新电影作品是《华Xiao英雄》。
计算出席集会人数方法
根据台湾泛科学网报导,计算出席集会人数方法有下列几种:
一是「雅克布斯法」(Jacobs Crowd Formula),是至今多为沿用的计算方法。以集会场地面积换算,依疏密程度,再乘以每单位面积的人数计算。这方法比较常用於静態的群眾集会,美国、韩国、菲律宾、新加坡等都用这方法计算集会人数。
此外,另一套计算方法是以面积来估算。假如游行人潮非常整齐排成一列一列,只要估算一列有几个人,一条街能容纳几排人,就能估算出一条街上参与游行人数。
另外,估算游行后遗留的垃圾,也是可用来计算人潮规模的方法之一。

500,000 were at Bersih 4, says organiser


31 August 2015 5.48 p.m.
The organiser of Bersih 4 sees the event as a huge success and that approximately 500,000 people had taken part in the rally.
"The total number of people who participated in Bersih 4, for the entire 34 hours, is estimated at 500,000," Bersih secretariat head Maria Chin Abdullah said at a press conference today.
Maria said Bersih, a coalition of NGOs pushing for electoral reforms, would consider hosting Bersih 5 if the demands made during the weekend's rally are not met.
"We will consider it. (But for now) we would like to reiterate our demands until they are fulfilled.
"We don't just want the prime minister to step down, but also to reform our institutions," she said.
The 34-hour rally on Saturday and Sunday saw tens of thousands of participants gathering, mainly along Jalan Tun Perak and aroundf Dataran Merdeka.
However, police estimates suggest that only 25,000 people took part on the first day.
Dr M's agenda
Meanwhile, Maria said she and the Bersih secretariat members were prepared for possible arrests, adding that their legal team was on standby.
On Dr Mahathir Mohamad's brief appearances at the rally, Maria's deputy Sarajun Hoda said the former prime minister had his own agenda.
"Firstly, he wants to see Najib step down. Secondly, he wants BN to be in power," said Sarajun.
Mahathir first visited the protest grounds on Saturday evening, stating that he was witnessing "people's power" and that the protesters should carry on.
Yesterday, Mahathir made another appearance, but made it clear that he was not supportive of Bersih's cause, which includes extensive institutional reforms to prevent abuse of power.
However, Mahathir said that street demonstrations were justifiable as a last resort, citing how Filipinos had to take to the streets to depose dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

同性恋不是辩驳可解决的

The rainbow flag is a symbol of 
pride and LGBT social movements in use since the 1970s.
(Author's comment: So called "rainbow" is actually not a rainbow. 
A rainbow created by God is 7-colored, but theirs is 6-colored.)
(作者的评语:所谓的“彩虹”并不是彩虹。上帝创造的彩虹是七彩的,
而他们的却是六彩的。)

2015年7月7日
作者:陈亚伦牧师

      626日,美国最高法院以54判决同性恋行为在美国合法化。随即在社交网站和whatsApp等广泛被讨论。我有不少的基督徒朋友都愤愤不平传来各种反对的文章和信息,但我都无动于衷,没有加入为“Keyboard warrior”(键盘战士)行列。我对这议题似乎心已死!

        个中原因务必谈谈背景故事。我早在15年前是第一个跟欧阳文风在《星洲日报》展开笔战的小子,持续到三年前结束,太疲倦了!欧阳在过程中最终出柜承认是一个同性恋者,几年前竟然在美国成为牧师,也在马来西亚开设教会。

        报章刊登两派作者的言论,公说公有理,婆说婆有理,我发觉继续下去乃没完没了的。所谓心死,乃指若我在上述电子媒体大喊大叫又何用?美国还不是合法化了?全世界二十多个国家已经合法化了,陆续还有国家跟风的。

        反对的声音大多数来自基督徒,因为他们的圣经明文不允许同性恋。而佛教徒鲜少发言,因为佛经没有论到同性恋是罪。再加上轮回的教义,死者投胎,可能在下世男男结合,或女女结合,因果或许就是前缘未了,今世再续前缘。伊斯兰教义不允许同性恋,穆斯林也不高调谈论。在极权的伊斯兰国乃必须就地正法的!

        美国是一个只有几百年历史的新兴国家,以信仰耶稣为主,秉持“In God We Trust”(我们信靠上帝)为治国动力。随着外来的移民增加,及基督徒疏于家庭的宗教教育,基督徒的人数虽然还是占主要比率,但其中却不少是有名无实的。这可从各州公投堕胎合法化和同性恋合法化支持维护道德者节节败退即可见一斑。

        时代进展,人民强调人权,以尊重别人的选择为大前提,可以把道德抛诸于背后。孩子还幼小时做错事,但父母不可以体罚他们,孩子都有人权嘛!女性怀胎选择不要把腹中的孩子生下来,把胎堕了,大人以“我的”人权作这个决定,然而,为什么没有想到胎儿也有人权要活下来呢?

        如果支持同性恋的公投者和法官不是基督徒,不懂得圣经的话,基督徒无必要对他们生气。但若基督徒和教会也从坚守圣经立场到逐渐妥协的话,那才可怕!教会不力,又却骂政府,何解?我认为,若同性恋者决定信仰基督教,可以参加教会,只不过不要喧宾夺主,影响教会的信仰。若不然,最好他们组织自己的教会。

        事实上同性恋是一个很古老的行为,自从亚当和夏娃犯罪堕落后,人类就迅速败坏。亚当不久后,上帝降下硫磺与火焚烧道德沦丧(包括同性恋行为)之两座城市所多玛与蛾摩拉。总之,赞同和反对同性恋的互相辩驳,在末世的今天,是不会改变它会持续“兴旺”的趋势的。生活还是要过,就让创造人类的上帝主宰判决吧。

        澳洲在美国法院通过同性恋合法化几天后即签署保护教会圣职人员的法令,即圣职人员可以不主持同性恋者的结婚仪式而被追究责任。希望那些已经同性恋合法化的国家也这样做,以尊敬圣职人员的人权。最重要的是,教会和基督徒家庭本身要加强读经,祷告和宣教。
