In his system, best reflected in Divine Love and Wisdom (1763), Swedenborg conceived of three spheres: divine mind, spiritual world, and natural world. Each corresponds to a degree of being in God and in humankind: love, wisdom, and use (end, cause, and effect).在他的系统),最能反映1763年在神圣的爱与智慧( 斯韦登伯格设想的三个领域:神圣的心灵,精神的世界,自然世界。对应于每一个利用程度被上帝和人类的:爱,智慧和(五月底,原因,以及影响)。 Through devotion to each degree, unification with it takes place and a person obtains his or her destiny, which is union with creator and creation.通过每一个奉献的程度,统一与发生和一个人获得他或她的命运,这是工会的创建者和创造。Unlike many mystics, Swedenborg proposed an approach to spiritual reality and God through, rather than in rejection of, material nature.不像许多神秘主义者,斯韦登伯格提出了一个现实的上帝办法的精神和通过,而不是排斥的,物质的性质。His 12 volume compendium The Heavenly Arcana (1747 - 56) represents a unique synthesis between modern science and religion.他的12卷汇编阿卡纳天(1747年至1756年)代表了独特的合成和宗教之间的现代科学。

I. LIFE OF SWEDENBORG一,生命作者:斯韦登伯格

Emanuel Swedenborg was b.伊曼纽尔是湾斯韦登伯格at Stockholm, 29 Jan., 1688; d.在斯德哥尔摩,1688年1月29日,四in London, 29 March, 1772.在伦敦,1772年3月29日。His father was Dr. Jesper Swedberg, who later became the Lutheran Bishop of Skara.他的父亲是博士加斯帕斯威德伯格,谁后来成为斯卡拉路德主教。Swedenborg's life falls into two very distinct periods: the first extends to the year 1745 and reveals him as an adept in the mathematical and physical sciences; in the second he appears as a writer on theological subjects. Endowed with extraordinary talents, he completed his university course at Upsala in 1710 and travelled for four years in England, Holland, France, and Germany. Shortly after his return to Sweden, he was appointed by King Charles XII to an assessorship on the Board of Mines (1716).斯韦登伯格的生活分为两个非常不同的时期:第一次延伸到1745年,揭示科学的他,身体一善于在数学和,而在第二,他似乎为主体的作家对神学。人才赋以非凡的,他完成了他的大学当然,在1710年在乌普萨拉和英国旅行,于四年内,荷兰,法国和德国。不久后,他返回瑞典,他被任命为国王查尔斯十二至一)assessorship对委员会地雷(1716。 He gave signal proof of his engineering ability during the siege of Frederickshall (1718) by inventing a means to transport boats and galleys overland for a distance of fourteen miles. His family was ennobled in 1719, a distinction indicated in the change of the name from Swedberg to Swedenborg.他给了14英里,距离陆地信号证明他的能力厨房工程在围攻Frederickshall(运输船和1718)发明的一种手段。他的家人在1719年变得崇高,一个区分的名称所示,从改变斯威德伯格到斯韦登伯格。 He declined (1724) the chair of mathematics at the University of Upsala and published at Leipzig in 1743 his important "Philosophical and Mineral Works" ("Opera philosophica et mineralia").他拒绝(1724年)的阿普萨拉椅子数学在大学和莱比锡在1743年发表的重要“的哲学和矿物工程”(“歌剧哲学等mineralia”)。 A year later appeared his treatise "On the Infinite and Final Cause of Creation" which includes a discussion of the relation between the soul and the body.一年后他的身体出现了论文“论,并最终导致无限创作”的讨论,并包括一个灵魂的关系的。Another scientific journey took him to Denmark, Germany, Holland, France, and Italy, and in 1740-1741 appeared at Amsterdam one of his larger anatomical works ("Oeconomia regni animalis").另一种科学的旅程将他带到丹麦,德国,荷兰,法国和意大利,并在1740年至1741年的作品出现在解剖阿姆斯特丹他的一个大(“Oeconomia regni animalis”)。The trend of his thoughts became distinctly religious in 1734 and exclusively so in 1745.他的思想成为明显的趋势在1734年和宗教等1745只研究。He alleged that at the latter date Our Lord appeared to him in London, initiated him into the spiritual sense of the Scriptures, and commissioned him to expound it to his fellow men.他声称,在后者的日期我们的主出现在伦敦的他,开始他把圣经的精神意义,并委托他向它阐述他的同胞们。With this vision there began, he declared, an intercourse with God, angels, and spirits which was to terminate only with his death.有了这一设想有开始,他宣布,一个交往与上帝,天使,和烈酒是终止与他的只有死亡。In 1747 he resigned his assessorship and, at his request, received as a pension the half of his salary. 1747年,他辞去assessorship,并在他的要求,领取的工资作为退休金,他的一半。He now spent his time between London, Amsterdam, and Stockholm, and wrote in Latin his voluminous theological works.现在,他度过了他的斯德哥尔摩时间与伦敦,阿姆斯特丹,和拉丁美洲神学说在他的长篇作品。These soon attracted the attention of the Lutheran clergy of Sweden; a commission was instituted in 1771 to examine them, but took no action against their author.这些很快引起了瑞典路德会神职人员注意的是,1771年设立一个委员会以研究他们,但没有采取行动对付他们的作者。 At his death Swedenborg received the Lord's Supper from a Protestant clergyman, to whom he affirmed his final attachment to his religious principles.在他去世斯韦登伯格收到一个新教牧师主的晚餐,向他申明他的最后依恋他的宗教原则。He was never married, was simple in his habits, worked and slept without much regard to day or night, and lay at times in a trance for several consecutive days.他从未结婚,是他的习惯,很简单,工作和晚上睡觉没有多少关于白天或与天打下有时在恍惚连续数。In 1908 his remains were transferred from London to Sweden and deposited in the cathedral at Upsala. 1908年,他的遗体被转移到伦敦,瑞典和存放在在乌普萨拉大教堂。

II.二。DOCTRINAL PRINCIPLES理论原则

Swedenborg and his followers hold that as the Christian religion succeeded the Jewish so the Swedenborgian teaching supplemented the Christian.斯韦登伯格和他的追随者认为,作为基督教的犹太人,以便成功的Swedenborgian教学补充了基督教。 This new dispensation promulgated by Swedenborg is, according to them, based on a Divinely revealed interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures.这种新体制斯韦登伯格颁布的是,根据他们的基础上,揭示了神圣的圣经神圣解释。Some of the characteristic features of this new religious system are presented in the following outline.这个新系统的一些宗教的主要特征,提出以下的轮廓。

God is Love Itself and Wisdom Itself.上帝是爱情本身和智慧本身。His Power is from and according to these as they flow forth into creative act.他的权力是从,并根据这些规定的行为,因为他们流动到创造性。

The Trinity does not consist of three distinct Divine persons as Catholics maintain; but is understood in the sense that in the Incarnation the Father or Jehovah is essentially the Divine Being, while the Son is the human (or sub-spiritual) element assumed by the Godhead in order to become present among men.三位一体并不包括三个不同的神人,天主教徒,保留,但就是在这个意义上理解,在道成肉身的父亲或耶和华是神的存在本质,而儿子是人类(或分精神所承担的)元素神体,以便成为本之间的男子。 The Holy Spirit is the Divine Presence and Power consequent upon this assumption and resultant transfiguration (glorification in Swedenborgian language) of the human element which thus became "a Divine Human" with all power in heaven and on earth.圣灵是神的存在和权力因应这一假设,并由此产生的变形(语言颂扬在Swedenborgian土)的人的因素,从而成为在天上的,“一个”神圣的人权与一切权力。 Jesus Christ is, therefore, not the incarnation of a second Divine person, but of the Divine as a whole; he includes the Father (Godhead), the Son (assumed humanity), and the Holy Spirit (Divine-human power).耶稣基督,因此,没有人化身第二个神,而是神的作为一个整体,包括他的父亲(神性),子(假设人类),和圣灵(神,人的力量)。

Life does not exist except in Him or from Him, and cannot be created.生活中并不存在,除非他或他,不能创造。Its presence in created forms is accounted for by continuous Divine influx. On this earth man enjoys the highest participation of life, but he is greatly inferior, in this respect, to the races undoubtedly inhabiting other planets, eg Jupiter, Mercury.它的形式存在,占创造的连续神圣的涌入的人。在这个地球上享有最高的参与生活,但他非常自卑,在这方面,向居住在其他的比赛无疑是行星,如木星,水星。

His three constituent elements are soul, body, and power.他的三个构成要素是灵魂,身体和力量。

Originally granted full freedom in the use of his faculties, he erroneously concluded that he held them from no one but himself and fell away from God. The Lord, after the fall, did not abandon the sinner, but appeared to him in the form of an angel and gave him the law to reclaim him from his evil ways. These efforts were useless, and God clothed Himself with a human organism and redeemed man, opening anew his faculties to the influx of Divine life. Men are admitted into the New Church through baptism; they are strengthened in the spiritual life by the reception of the Eucharist.本来学院授予他充分的自由,在使用时,他错误地认为,他举行了一次,但他们从没有自己和下跌远离上帝。主,后下降,并没有放弃的罪人,但形式似乎在向他一个天使,给他的法律途径收回他从他的罪恶。这些努力是无用的,上帝自己穿生物体与人类和赎回的人,他重新开放学院的生命神圣的涌入。男人教会获准进入新通过洗礼,他们是加强了精神生活的圣体招待会。

Justification cannot be obtained by faith alone; good works are likewise necessary.理由不能得到单独的信念,良好的工作同样是必要的。

The seclusion of the cloister is not a help but a hindrance to spiritual growth; the healthiest condition for the latter is a life of action in the world.隐居的修道院的不是帮助,而是精神上的成长障碍;的健康条件,后者是一个为世界的生命的行动研究。

Miracles and visions produce no real spiritual change because they destroy the requisite liberty.奇迹与梦想不会产生真正的精神改变,因为他们破坏了必要的自由。

The hope of reward is not to be recommended as an incentive to virtue, for good actions are vitiated when prompted by motives of self-interest. Death is the casting off by man of his material body which has no share in the resurrection.悬赏希望是不被推荐的美德,以激励,良好的行动是无效死亡时,提示由自我利益的动机。是由复活的人摆脱了物质的组织,在没有任何份额。

Immediately after death all human souls enter into the intermediate state known as the world of spirits, where they are instructed and prepared for their final abodes, heaven or hell.后立即死亡的所有人类灵魂进入天堂或地狱,中间住处国家被称为世界的精神,最终在那里得到指示,并准备为他们的。

We need not expect the Last Judgment for it has already taken place; it was held in 1757 in Swedenborg's presence.我们不必指望它最后的审判已经发生,它是在1757年举行的斯韦登伯格的存在。

No pure spirits exist; both angels and devils are former members of the human race, have organic forms, and experience sensation.没有纯粹的精神存在,两个天使和魔鬼是人类的前成员,都有机形式,感觉和经验。

The liturgy of the New Church is is modelled on the Anglican service.新的教会礼仪的是英国圣公会的服务为蓝本。The Church organization in Great Britain is congregational; in the United States most of the various religious societies are grouped in state associations under the charge of general pastors, while the "General Church" (see below) is avowedly episcopal in government.英国教会的组织是公理,在各宗教团体美国大多数州都集中在协会根据一般的牧师负责,而“一般教会”(见下文)是公然政府主教研究。

III.三。HISTORY OF THE NEW CHURCH; STATISTICS; EDUCATIONAL AND PUBLISHING ACTIVITIES历史上的新教堂,统计,教育和出版活动

Swedenborg made no attempt at founding a separate Church; he presented his doctrinal works to university and seminary libraries in the hope that they might be of service; how far ahead he thought is uncertain, as he seemed to hold that his followers might be members of any Christian denomination.斯韦登伯格没有企图在教会成立一个独立的,他提出了他的理论工程,以大学和神学院图书馆,希望他们可能是服务,如何遥遥领先,他认为是不确定的,因为他似乎觉得他的追随者可能会成员任何基督教教派。 But his views were, in many respects, so entirely new that their adoption made the foundation of a distinct religious body inevitable.但他的意见方面,在许多人,所以他们采用全新的身体基础的一个独特的宗教是不可避免的。Few accepted his opinions completely during his lifetime.很少接受了他的一生完全在他的意见。They found zealous advocates, however, in two Anglican clergymen, Thomas Hartley, rector of Winwick in Northamptonshire, and John Clowes, rector of St. John's at Manchester.他们发现,热心的倡导者,但是,在两个英国圣公会牧师,托马斯哈特利,威尼克在北安普敦郡的校长,约翰克劳夫斯,校长圣约翰在曼彻斯特。 These divines rendered his works into English and through the efforts of Clowes, who never separated from the Church of England, Lancashire became at an early date the Swedenborgian stronghold which it still remains today.这些divines使他的作品译成英文,并通过英国的努力克劳夫斯,绝不是谁教会分离,兰开夏郡成为早日据点的Swedenborgian它仍然是今天。 The formal organization of the New Church took place in 1787, and James Hindmarsh, a former Methodist preacher, was chosen by lot to officiate at the inaugural meeting.新堂正式组织了1787年发生的中,詹姆斯欣德马什,前循道卫理牧师,被抽签方式确定主持的首次会议。The first public service was held in 1788 in a chapel at Great Eastcheap, London.第一次举行了公共服务,在1788年在伦敦一个小教堂在大Eastcheap。Swedenborgian societies were soon formed in various English cities, and in 1789 the first general conference of the New Church met in the place of worship just mentioned.
