What does "the mourner's bench" refer to? In Christianity, since Adam and Eve's fall, human beings are sinners and are supposed to mourn for our sin. We can only be saved after admitting that we are sinners and accepting Jesus Christ as our saviors. The mourner's bench is, therefore, the area for people who haven't converted themselves to Christianity.
基督徒相信，自從亞當和夏娃違反 上帝旨意而墮落犯罪之後，所有的人類都背負著這樣的原罪。既是罪人，就應該為自己的罪深切哀痛；而想要從罪中釋放出來，必須承認自己是罪人，並且接受耶穌基督的寶血和救恩，讓基督成為自己的主人。The mourner's bench 因此指的是給還未歸主的人坐的地方。
