超短基版FAQ - 英譯工程

是次英譯工程,是希望把本FAQ推廣到外國。惟我少讀書,英文不好,望各版友不吝賜教。
超短基版FAQ

前言

關於基督教的辯論,文章又長又多,本人以數年上基版經驗,彙編一系列FAQ,但是以超簡短形式的問答,希望大家能用很短的時間,來了解/誤解基督教。

當然,簡短是不太可能很完整地解釋的,本文的宗旨亦非如此;反而是想激發大家思考,而不至於盲目接受某些思想灌輸。

The Very Short Christianity
Frequently Asked Questions

Foreword

There are plenty of lengthy articles debating on Christianity.  To help you understand / misunderstand Christianity quickly, I compiled some FAQs in a very short form.

I cannot include full explanations here because it is a "very short" FAQ, and this is not my intention either. What I am trying to do is to inspire you to contemplate rather than being indoctrinated with some prescribed ideologies.

Note: Hyperlinks in this FAQ will take you to other websites maintained by their webmasters. Contents of these websites do not reflect the positions or opinions of this FAQ.

問:(1) 聖經無誤。
  (2) 聖經就是真理,是神所默示的。

答:聖經其實是充滿矛盾錯謬的書。〔錯誤百出的聖經(簡體原版 TXT)(繁體版 HTML)〕〔The Skeptic's Annotated Bible〕

答:怎樣斷章取義?正解又是甚麼?

問:了解上文下理,以及當時文化背景後,你便會真正了解。

問:聖經XX版有翻譯問題,看看聖經的原文(希臘文、希伯來文)的意思便不會誤解。
答:誰有聖經全文原文無誤翻譯本?不是要我去學希臘文、希伯來文吧?

問:看完整本聖經,你才會真正明白它的意思。
答:沒有人吃下一整隻臭蛋,才會斷言蛋已經壞了〔臭蛋理論〕。

問:天國近了,你們應當悔改! 〔太3:2(和合本)〕
答:已近了二千幾年了,還有多近?

Are you suggesting to reside in Israel for several years?

看聖經原文應該唔駛go,
A:的翻譯seems太轉折
Q: XX version of the bible has translation problems.  Refer to the original bible (in Greek & Hebrew) to avoid misinterpretations .

A: Who has the 100% precise translation of all (original) Scriptures?  Do I need to learn Greek & Hebrew?

Scriptures 本身就係原文,唔加original都得, 加就更強調,your call.
用negative interrogative表示您expecting一個positive嘅答案,應該並非您嘅原意,況且既然本文係想inspires讀者思考,則避免預設答案,open for  讀者自己答較為適宜, 只須用一般問題句就算了。what do u think?
de omnibus dubitandum
原句「不是要我去學希臘文、希伯來文吧?」含有「唔通要我去學咩」的含義。的確,信下教就要去學兩種古文,是離譜丫嘛。這「唔通」的意思用英文表達,是否應用negative interrogative呢?

因此前句「Who has the 100% precise translation of all scriptures?」已有inspire讀者思考的意思,後句「不是要我去學希臘文、希伯來文吧?」是用以表達因現存沒有無誤譯本的荒謬。
