This painting is related to the many terrorist attacks which occurred in recent times. The painting portrays a figure in a pose which looks like a helpless baby, symbolising one who is without strength to help oneself.  (A pacifier coming loose of the baby’s mouth, and the “motion effect” of the arms and legs are to add on a dramatic effect.)

The phrase on the painting, “No Faith, No Peace!” has to be interpreted based on an understanding of the word of the bible. If you are a believer, but you are always affected by the frequent evil happenings around you instead of being Christ focussed, then that heavenly peace will be completed replaced by worries.

Postscript 1: I will share a little of my experience, which is, do not imagine too much, and do not worry about tomorrow or the future, but live in the Now! And pray always.

Postscript 2: I was told by a psychiatrist, one of the key phrases he uses very often on his patients is, “Let go!”


畫中的題字:"沒信心, 沒平安!" 是需要根據聖經的宗旨來解讀的 - "即你若是信徒但卻經常因過於專注周遭發生的惡事而忽略了應以基督為中心, 那屬天的平安便會被一切憂慮給遮掩了。

附注一: 分享一點小心得 - 即是 "少一點假想, 不要憂慮明天或更長遠的問題, 就活在當下!並凡事禱告。"

附注二: 曾有一位在精神科醫生告訴我他在補導精神病患時常用的關鍵字是叫他們 "放下!"
