耶穌生命堂用語 (按中文筆劃數目排列)

五劃

生命小組 (Lifegroup)
– 幾個人組成的群體,分全男或全女,由生命小組領袖帶領,類似其他教會的圑契或小組。
生命小組領袖有絕對的權力,組員甚至不能對組長有任何疑問,否則會被召見審問。

七劃

牧師 (Pastors)
– 主要領導教會的人。
在耶穌生命堂的牧師有少數受過新頌教會的聖經學院訓練,
但大多數完全沒有接受過任何聖經以及神學的訓練。
教會更鼓吹信徒無須到神學院學習,只需要在教會學習聖經即可。

九劃

紅書 (Red Book)
– 由彭樂德牧師撰寫講述關係的書本。
內容以個人牧養經驗和聖經經文所組成,類近坊間講論關係的基督教書本。
唯一不同的是紅書同樣是耶穌生命堂裏認可作教導的書籍。

十四劃

領袖 (Leaders)
– 包括牧師、教會管理層、生命小組領袖(即組長)。
耶穌生命堂以極權方式牧養弟兄姊妹,
弟兄姊妹必須接受領袖的教導,不論何等無理的要求。
領袖愛用「挑戰」(challenge)(即質問)的手法改變弟兄姊妹,
不少弟兄姊妹因此受到情緒傷害。
而領袖甚至會明言如果無法接受教會的教導就請信徒離開教會。

十七劃

講道 (Sermon)
– 一般來說有三個要點,講述有關於聖經或神的話語。
由於牧師欠缺聖經訓練,大部份講道都是非常簡單,甚至不是聖經的教導。
而提及舊約的機會非常少,多數引自詩篇或箴言,
更絕少講論摩西五經、歷史書、先知書的內容。

十八劃

藍書、綠書 (Blue, Green Book)
– 由彭樂德牧師撰寫的門徒訓練書本,藍書為初階,綠書為進階,
均可以在Apple Apps Store或Android Market免費下載。
藍書,綠書是耶穌生命堂唯一認可的門徒訓練手冊,
內容由不同的基督教課題組成,以淺易的方式講解聖經。
由於耶穌生命堂領袖認定「淺易為最艱深」這似是而非的謬論,
信徒在完成藍書,綠書後只能不斷重覆閱讀相同內容。

二十四劃

靈修筆記 (Journaling)
– 信徒閱讀聖經後的感想,記下並在生命小組分享。
耶穌生命堂鼓勵弟兄姊妹讀聖經,但不會教導信徒正確理解聖經。
靈修上當然可以包括靈意解經,不過按正意分解聖經(提後2:15)是神所啓示的要求。

Glossary of Jesus Lifehouse (In alphabetical order)

B
Blue Book, Green Book

Blue and Green Books are the guidebooks of discipleship written by Pastor Rod. Blue Book is for elementary level and Green Book is for advanced level. Both books can be freely downloaded in Apple Apps Store or Android Market. Blue and Green Book are solely approved discipleship course in Jesus Lifehouse covering different Christianity topics presented in simple ways. Leaders of the church have an illogical rationale that “simple is the most complicated" so members can only read the Green and Blue books repeatedly after completing the two books.

J
Journaling

Journaling is one’s feelings or thoughts after studied the Bible and to be shared in Lifegroup gathering. Jesus Lifehouse encourages brothers and sisters to study holy bible but do not to teach them the correct way to understand the Bible. One may interpret the bible in eisegesis in personal bible study but correctly handles the word of truth is the requirement set by the Lord (2 Timothy 2:15).

L
Leaders

Leaders include Pastor, church management and Lifegroup leaders (or cell group leader). Leadership in Jesus Lifehouse is manipulative in nature whereas brothers and sisters has to be obedient to the leaders’ notwithstanding reasonable or not. Leaders like to change the decision of brothers and sisters by challenging them so many felt judged and were emotionally hurt. Leaders also request those cannot accept the teaching of the church to leave for another church.

Lifegroup / Lifegroup Leader
Lifegroup is a small group composite of either all males or all females leaded by a leader similar to fellowship or cell group like other Christian churches. Lifegroup leader has absolute power; members may be called upon for interrogation if they have any doubt against the church or Lifegroup leader.

P
Pastors

Pastor is the key leader of the church.
Most Pastors in Jesus Lifehouse were not trained in theology and even on reading Bible, though minorities of them were trained in leadership school in Hillsong Church. The church even asserts there is no need to study the Bible at any theology schools but only to study it in the church.

R
Red Book

Red Book is written by Pastor Rod Plummer about relationships. Red Book is similar to other Christian books about relationship. It comprises Mr. Rod’s personal shepherding experience and scriptures. However, same as Blue and Green Book, the Red Book is the only material that has been approved for teaching in Jesus Lifehouse.

S
Sermon

Sermon in Jesus Lifehouse generally includes three main points about the Bible or God’s words. As the pastor lacked biblical and theology training so the content of sermon are often too simple or even unbiblical. Most sermons do not cover much about the Old Testament except Psalms or Proverbs.
