◆Building a modern state to take Sri Lanka to the next level
【Colombo】There was recently on social media an image of a president of a western country on foot in the midst of a milling crowd who paid him no special notice with a backpack on his shoulders and carrying a brown paper bag in which was said to be his lunch. President Gotabaya Rajapaksa's style of dressing is likewise unpretentious and simple though he may not be able to walk the streets in that same manner due to the different security and social conditions in Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, the President has won public commendation for the many positive actions he has been taking to streamline governance and they are indicative of a break from the past.（...Read more）

◆Review：The baptism of the Holy Spirit (Grace)
Paul (BC ? - AD 65?) preached that 'The baptism of the Holy Spirit' was God's grace or mercy for sinners in 'The Epistle to the Ephesians' and 'The Epistle to the Romans.' Because this concept of 'grace' was interpreted in various ways and developed into a theological debate, it became not only one of causes to split Christianity into Catholic and Protestant, but also influenced modern Western philosophies and economic and political theories. ○Tertullianus' "Divine Gift" ○Pelagius' "Inherent Blessing" ○Augustine's "Anti-Inherent-Blessing Theory" ○Thomas Aquinas' "Gratia Infusa" ○Luther's "Justification by one's faith" ○Descartes' "Vortex Theory" ○Rousseau's "Social Contract" ○Adam Smith's "Laissez-faire" ○Kant's "Kingdom of Ends" ○Hegel's "Absolute Spirit" ○Marx's "Materialistic View of History" ○The way to secure and stabilize the country ○Yixing Revolution Theory and Hegel's "Era Spirit" ○Confucianism and Kant's moral theory ○Buddha is trouble, trouble is Buddha（...Read more）
The origin of Christianity：An Epic Tale of the People of the Covenant
In the region from Mesopotamia situated within the Tigris–Euphrates river to Palestine, city states, where agricultural and nomadic people had lived together, have risen and fallen since ancient times. The agricultural people played leading role in the most of these city states. However, the nomads, such as Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Manasseh, Ephraim and so on formed a union of independent tribes and established the unity of religion and politics based on the covenant of the single founder Abraham and God from 3,000 to 4,000 years ago in Palestine region and appeared on history's center stage replacing agricultural people. Thus the People of the Covenant was born.
In [Part 1: The Wandering of the People of the Covenant] of this book, let's look at 'the birth of the People of the Covenant,' 'the formation of tribal nation,' 'the division and destruction of nations,' 'the period of Persian rule' and 'the period of Hellenistic rule.' In [Part 2: Genealogy of Hassidim], let's examine the periods of 'Maccabean Revolt,' 'Hasmonean Dynasty,' and 'Herod Dynasty.' In [Part 3: The Church Movement and Jesus] let's examine the relationship between 'the Church Movement' and Jesus, his disciples, the High Priest, and the royal family. In [Part 4: The Challenge of Paul] we will focuse on Paul's teachings and Paul's missionary work. In [Part 5:Rebuilding of the faith of "Second Coming" and criticism against Paul], we will focus on rebuilding the faith of the second coming after the Jewish war and the criticism against Paul that arose in the rebuilding process. In [Part 6: Palestine and Zionism] we will examine the current situation of Israel and Palestine in the context of the theme "The Wandering of the People of the Covenant." In [Part 7: The baptism of the Holy Spirit], let's look at the spirit behind the words of Jesus and his disciples written in "Gospel of Thomas", "Acts (Paul)", "Gospel of John" and "Gospel of Matthew."
Peace, Jesus has left with us (John 14:27), is now obvious. In both the east and west, despite differences of religion, the wisdom needed to survive turbulent times is the same. The secret of "Baptism of the Holy Spirit" taught by Jesus was brought in Mahayana Buddhism, Islam and other religions and has inherited until now. I would be pleased if I could share the essence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the readers of this book.
从底格里斯-幼发拉底两条河流之间的美索不达米亚到巴勒斯坦的地区，自古以来农业民族和游牧民族共同生活的城邦兴亡。在大多数的这些城市里农业民族扮演主角。不过，大约在3000年到4000年前，游牧民族，如; 流便(Reuben),西缅(Simeon),利未(Levi),犹大(Judah),以萨迦(Issachar),西布伦(Zebulun),约瑟(Joseph),便雅悯(Benjamin),但(Dan),拿弗他利(Naphtali),迦得(Gad),亚设(Asher)，玛拿西(Manasseh)和以法莲(Ephraim)等等，在巴勒斯坦地区组织了基于单一始祖亚伯拉罕与上帝盟约的一个独立的部落联盟，也就是政教合一的政体从而取代农业民族首次出现在历史舞台上作为主角。这就是『盟约之民(People of the Covenant)』的诞生。 在本书《第一部：盟约之民的流浪》中，让我们看看『圣约之民诞生』，『部落国家的形成』，『国家的分裂与灭亡』，『波斯统治时期』和『希腊化时期』。 在《第二部：哈西迪姆的家谱》中，让我们看看『马加比家族起义』，『哈斯莫纳王朝』和『希律王朝』时期。 在《第三部：教会运动和耶稣》中，让我们看看『教会运动』与耶稣，他的门徒，大祭司和王室之间的关系。 在《第五部：再临信仰的重新构筑和批评保罗》中，我们将关注在第二次犹太战争后的重建再临信仰以及在重建过程中出现的对保罗的批评。 在《第七部：圣灵的施洗》，让我们看看耶稣和他的门徒在『托马斯福音』，『使徒行传(保罗)』，『约翰福音』和『马太福音』里所说话背后的灵。
