Abstract:

在世界范围内,我们都面临着引发严重健康危险的空气污染、作为气候变化结果之一的毁灭性风暴、水污染与河流枯竭、大型城市的巨量垃圾、森林滥伐与增长的荒漠、作为有限且不可再生之化石能源标志的石油峰值,以及从未见过的特大洪灾。在世界各地这类环境浩劫的名录是极长的。垃圾处理问题还远远没有解决。能源效率必须像在所有国家中那样加以改进;由腐败造成的污染、森林砍伐以及环境破坏必须予以果断处理。面对这些多种多样的环境挑战,特别是全球气候变化,基督教信仰能够做出什么样的贡献呢?Engl. We are All Guests on Earth !

L'objectif est d'examiner les possibilités de création de comités éthiques chargés du dialogue entre les religions en RD Congo post-conflit. Ces comités joueraient les rôles de gestion pacifique des conflits entre communautés et de concertation pour la participation des religions à la consolidation de la paix

Abstract:
Faith is the mainsail for the ship called "China Dream". A key to the fulfilment of the "China Dream" is the revival of Chinese Civilization. The core of civilization is culture, and the core of culture is faith. The history proves that the sustainable development of a country or a nation always needs a special class who are not just developing economy, but also holding fast to ethics and morality. And the emerging group of Chinese Christian entrepreneurs are an essential part of this class for China. The book provides an orientation and basics on Christian faith for Chinese Christian Entrepreneurs: on Jesus Christ, the Bible, basic doctrines, the Church, spirituality, Church history, denominations and twelve criteria for Christian business.

Abstract:

This position paper puts forward an ethical case for end-of-life decision-mak¬ing legislation. Such legislation would clarify areas of legal uncertainty, most notably in respect of terminal pain management, withholding and withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment (sometimes called "passive euthanasia"), and advance directives (a living will and a durable power of attorney for healthcare). More controversially, the paper also argues for the inclusion of assisted dying (assisted suicide and voluntary active euthanasia) in a comprehensive end-of-life decision-making bill.
