[Lokhu ukuqhubeka kwesihloko ku- Indima Yabesifazane Ebandleni.]

Le ndatshana iqale njengamazwana ukuphendula umcabango ka-Eleasar, ucwaningwe kahle amazwana encazelweni ka kephalē ku-1 Korion 11: 3.

"Kepha ngifuna uqonde ukuthi inhloko yawo wonke amadoda nguKristu, nenhloko yowesifazane yindoda, nenhloko kaKristu nguNkulunkulu." (1 Co 11: 3 BSB)

Isizathu sokuthi nginqume ukuliguqula libe yi-athikili kwakuwukuqaphela ukuthi iziphetho zika-Eleasar zabiwe abanye abaningana. Njengoba lokhu sekungaphezu kwengqinamba yezifundo, futhi manje inamandla okuhlukanisa ibandla lethu le-nascent, ngabona kungcono ukuthi ngibhekane nayo njengesihloko. Akuwona wonke umuntu ofunda imibono, ngakho-ke okulotshwe lapha kungenzeka kungaphuthelwa. Nginalokho engqondweni, bengicela bonke bazifunde zika-Eleasar amazwana ngaphambi kokuqhubeka nalesi sihloko.

Impikiswano yangempela phambi kwebandla ukuthi abesifazane kufanele bathandaze yini ngokuzwakalayo emhlanganweni webandla lapho amadoda ekhona. Lokho kungabonakala njengokungeyona inkinga ngoba kucace kakhulu kwi1 Korion 11: 4, 5 ukuthi abesifazane abangamaKristu babekhuleka ebandleni ngekhulu lokuqala. Ngeke sibenqabele ilungelo elasungulwa ebandleni lokuqala ngaphandle kokuthile okucacile emiBhalweni ukugunyaza leso sinqumo.

Ngakho-ke, kubonakala sengathi — uma ngifunda kahle imibono ehlukahlukene, ama-imeyili nezinkulumo zomhlangano engizibonile nengizizwile — ukuthi abanye abazwisisayo bazizwa ukuthi bahlobene nendaba yegunya. Banomuzwa wokuthi ukuthandaza ebandleni kusho isilinganiso segunya phezu kweqembu. Okunye ukuphikisana engikuzwile ukuthi kungaba yiphutha ukuthi umuntu wesifazane akhuleke egameni labantu. Labo abagqugquzela lo mbono banomuzwa wokuthi imithandazo yokuvula neyokuvala iwela esigabeni semikhuleko yebandla. Lababantu babonakala behlukanisa le mithandazo emibili nemikhuleko enganikezwa izimo ezikhethekile — ngokwesibonelo, ukuthandazela abagulayo, ngokwesibonelo somhlangano. Futhi, ngibeka konke lokhu ezintweni ezahlukahlukene eziye zabhalwa futhi zashiwo, yize kungekho noyedwa oye wasichaza ngokunembile izizathu zemibhalo zokuphindwa kwabo ekuvumeleni abesifazane ukuba bathandaze ngaphakathi kohlelo lomhlangano webandla.

Isibonelo, ukubhekisisa emuva ku-Eleasar amazwana, okuningi kwenziwa ngenkolelo yokuthi ukusetshenziswa kukaPawulu kwegama lesiGreki kephalē (ikhanda) ku-1 Korinte 11: I-3 iphathelene "negunya" hhayi "umthombo". Kodwa-ke, akukho ukuxhumana okwenziwe ekuphawuleni phakathi kwalokhu kuqonda kanye neqiniso elishiwo ngokucacile emavesini alandelayo (vs. 4 ne5) ukuthi abesifazane bathandaze ngempela ebandleni. Njengoba singeke siliphike iqiniso lokuthi bathandazile, khona-ke umbuzo uba: Ingabe uPawulu wayekelela ngandlela thile ukubamba iqhaza kowesifazane ekuthandazeni (futhi masingakhohlwa ukuprofeta) ngokubhekisele ebunhlokweni bakhe? Uma kunjalo, kungani engasho ngokusobala ukuthi kuyini lokho kulinganiselwa? Kungabonakala kungalungile ukuthi besinganciphisa umkhawulo obaluleke kangaka wokukhulekelwa osekelwe ekuthobeleni kuphela.

Isi-Kephalē: Umthombo noma igunya?

Ngokwalokho okushiwo ngu-Eleasar, kubonakala sengathi ukubonwa kuqala kwezazi zeBhayibheli kuyabukwa kephalē ngokubhekisele “kwigunya” hhayi “emthonjeni”. Kuliqiniso, iqiniso lokuthi iningi likholelwa ukuthi okuthile akusona isisekelo sokucabanga ukuthi kuyiqiniso. Singasho ukuthi iningi lososayensi likholelwa ekuziphendukeleni kwemvelo, futhi akunakungatshazwa ukuthi iningi lamaKristu likholelwa kuZiqu-zintathu. Kodwa-ke, ngiyaqiniseka ukuthi nakho akulona iqiniso.

Ngakolunye uhlangothi, angisho ukuthi kufanele sehlise okuthile ngoba iningi liyakholelwa.

Kuphinde kube nodaba lokuthambekela kwethu ekwamukeleni okushiwo ngumuntu ofunde ukwedlula thina. Akusona yini isizathu ukuthi umuntu ojwayelekile “osemgwaqweni” amukele ukuziphendukela kwemvelo njengeqiniso?

Uma ubheka emuva ngabaprofethi bakwa-Israyeli wasendulo kanye nabadobi ababumba abaphostoli beNkosi, uyabona ukuthi kaningi uJehova wayekhetha ukunganaki, ukuthobeka nokudelelekile kwabantu ukwenza amahloni amadoda ahlakaniphile. (ULuka 10: 21; 1 Korion 1: 27)

Uma sinikezwe lokhu, senza kahle uma sibheka imiBhalo ngokwethu, senze ucwaningo lwethu, bese siwuvumela umoya usihole. Yize kunjalo, le kuphela kwendlela yethu yokubona ukuthi yini esishukumisayo, kungaba owesilisa noma owesimame.

Isibonelo, cishe zonke izazi ezihunyushwe ngeBhayibheli ziye zahunyushwa AmaHeberu 13: 17 njengo "Lalela abaholi bakho", noma amagama alokho, i-NIV iyingqayizivele ehlukile. Igama lesiGreek elihunyushwe kuleli vesi ngokuthi "lalela" lithi peithó, futhi ichazwa ngokuthi "ukuncenga, ukuzethemba, ukunxusa". Ngakho-ke kungani lezi zingcweti zeBhayibheli zingakuhumushi ngale ndlela? Kungani ihunyushwe ngokweqile ngokuthi "lalela"? Benza umsebenzi omuhle nayo kwenye indawo emiBhalweni yamaKristu, kungani-ke lapha? Kungenzeka yini ukuthi ukucabanga kwesigaba esibusayo kuyasebenza lapha, kufuna ukusekelwa okungokomBhalo kwegunya abalisebenzisayo lokunikela umhlambi kaNkulunkulu?

Inkinga ngokubandlulula yimvelo yayo ecashile. Sivame ukuba nobandlululo ngokungazi. O, singakubona kalula ngokwanele kwabanye, kepha kwesinye isikhathi siyakubona.

Ngakho-ke, lapho iningi lezazi lenqaba okushiwo kephalē “njengomthombo / umsuka”, kepha esikhundleni salokho ukhetha “igunya”, lokhu kungenxa yokuthi kulapho imibhalo iholela khona, noma yingoba yilapho bafuna ukuba baholele khona?

Kungaba okungalunganga ukuchitha ucwaningo lwalamadoda ngenxa yokubandlulula kwabesilisa. Ngokunjalo, bekungeke kube ukuhlakanipha ukwamukela ucwaningo lwabo ngokucabanga ukuthi alunankinga. Ukubandlulula okunjalo kungokoqobo futhi kuboshelwe ngaphakathi.

UGenesise 3: I-16 ithi isifiso sowesifazane sizoba ngowesilisa. Lokhu kulangazelela okungafaniyo kungumphumela wokungalingani okubangelwa yisono. Njengamadoda, siyalivuma leli qiniso. Kodwa-ke, ingabe siyakwamukela ukuthi kithina, ubulili besilisa, okunye ukungalingani okukhona kusenza ukuba sibuse owesimame? Ngabe sicabanga ukuthi ngoba nje sizibiza ngokuthi singamaKhristu, sikhululiwe kulo lonke uhlangothi lokungalingani? Lokho kungaba umcabango oyingozi kakhulu ongakwenza, ngoba indlela elula yokungena ebuthakathakeni ukukholwa ukuthi sinqobile ngokuphelele. (I-1 Korion 10: 12)

Idlala Ummeli KaDeveli

Ngiye ngathola kaningi ukuthi indlela engcono yokuhlola ukungqubuzana ukwamukela isisekelo sayo bese ngiyithatha ngokwedlulele ngokunengqondo ukuze ngibone ukuthi isazobamba yini amanzi, noma iqhume ivulekile.

Ngakho-ke, ake sithathe lesi simo kephalē (ikhanda) ku-1 Korinte 11: I-3 isho ngempela igunya eliphethe ikhanda ngalinye eliphethe.

Owokuqala nguJehova. Unalo lonke igunya. Igunya lakhe alinamkhawulo. Lokho kungaphezu kwengxabano.

UJehova unikeze uJesu “lonke igunya ezulwini nasemhlabeni”. Igunya lakhe, ngokungafani nelikaJehova lilinganiselwe. Unikezwe igunya eliphelele isikhathi esilinganiselwe. Kwaqala ngalolu vuko, futhi luphela lapho egcwalisa umsebenzi wakhe. (UMathewu 28: 18; 1 Korion 15: 24-28)

Kodwa-ke, uPawulu akavumi lelizinga legunya kuleli vesi. Akasho ukuthi uJesu uyinhloko yayo yonke indalo, inhloko yazo zonke izingelosi, inhloko yebandla, inhloko yabesilisa nabesifazane. Uthi kuphela inhloko yendoda. Ubeka igunya likaJesu kule ndawo ngaphansi kwegunya alinike amadoda. UJesu akhulunywa ngaye njengenhloko yabesifazane, kodwa ngamadoda kuphela.

Kubonakala sengathi uPawulu ukhuluma ngomzila okhethekile weziphathimandla noma uchungechunge lomyalo. Izingelosi azithinteki kulokhu, noma uJesu ephethe igunya phezu kwazo. Kubukeka sengathi lelo ligatsha elihlukile leziphathimandla. Abantu abanalo igunya phezu kwezingelosi futhi izingelosi azinalo igunya phezu kwabantu. Noma kunjalo, uJesu unegunya phezu kwakho konke lokhu.

Luhlobo luni lwaleli gunya?

KuJohn 5: 19 UJesu uthi, “Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile, ngithi kuwe, iNdodana ayinakwenza lutho ngokwayo, kuphela ilokho ibona uYise ekwenza. Ngoba noma yini uBaba ayenza, neNdodana yenza ngokufanayo. ”Manje uma uJesu engenzi lutho ngokwakhe, kodwa kuphela lokho abona uYise ekwenza, kuyalandela ukuthi amadoda akufanele athathe igunya lobunhloko ukusho ukuthi babusa indawo; sengathi. Esikhundleni salokho, umsebenzi wabo — umsebenzi wethu — ufana nokaJesu, ukubona ukuthi lokho uNkulunkulu akufunayo kuyenziwa. Iqoqo lomyalo liqala kuNkulunkulu futhi lidlule ngathi. Akuqali ngathi.

Manje, sicabangela ukuthi uPawulu usebenzisa kephalē ukusho igunya futhi kungabi ngumthombo, lokho kuwuthinta kanjani umbuzo wokuthi abesifazane bangakwazi yini ukuthandaza ebandleni? (Masingaphazanyiswa. Lokhu kungukuphela kombuzo esifuna ukuwuphendula lapha.) Ingabe ukuthandaza ebandleni kudinga ukuthi lowo othandazayo abambe isikhundla segunya phezu kwabo bonke abanye? Uma kunjalo, ukuhlanganisa “inhloko” yethu negunya kungasusa abesifazane ekuthandazeni. Kepha nansi i-rub: Kungasusa nabesilisa ekuthandazeni.

"Bafowethu, akekho noyedwa kini oyikhanda lami, ngakho-ke kungenzeka kanjani ukuthi noma ubani kini angimelele ngomkhuleko?"

Uma ukuthandazela ibandla — okuthile esikushoyo kusebenza lapho sivula futhi kuvala ngomkhuleko — kusho igunya, ngakho-ke amadoda awakwazi ukukwenza. Amakhanda ethu kuphela angakwenza, yize angitholanga sikhathi embhalweni lapho uJesu enza khona lokho. Noma ngabe kunjani, akukho okubonisa ukuthi amaKristu ekhulu lokuqala abeka umzalwane ukuba ame futhi athandaze ebandleni. (Zifunele usebenzisa lolu phawu - thandaza * - kuhlelo lwe Library ye-Watchtower.)

Sinobufakazi bokuthi amadoda athandazile in ibandla ngekhulu lokuqala. Sinobufakazi bokuthi abesifazane bathandaze in ibandla ngekhulu lokuqala. Sine cha ubufakazi bokuthi noma ngubani, owesilisa noma owesifazane, uthandazile esikhundleni sika ibandla ngekhulu lokuqala.

Kubukeka sengathi sikhathazekile ngesiko esilizuze enkolweni yethu yangaphambili, elaliyizuza njengefa kweLobukholwa. Ukuthandazela ibandla kusho isigaba segunya enginalo, ngicabanga ukuthi “ikhanda” elisho ukuthi “igunya”. Njengoba ngingeyona inhloko yanoma yimuphi umuntu wesilisa, ngingagxila kanjani ukumela abanye abantu futhi ngithandaze kuNkulunkulu esikhundleni sabo?

Uma abanye bethi ukuthandazela ibandla akusho ukuthi indoda ethandazayo isebenzisa igunya (ubunhloko) phezu kwebandla nangaphezu kwamanye amadoda, manje-ke ingasho kanjani ukuthi kungowesifazane owuthandazayo? Yini usoso we-gander isoso sehansi.

Uma samukela ukuthi uPawulu usebenzisa kephalē (inhloko) ukubhekisa esikhundleni seziphathimandla nokuthi ukuthandazela ibandla kubandakanya ubunhloko, ke-ke ngiyakwamukela ukuthi owesifazane akufanele athandaze kuNkulunkulu egameni lebandla. Ngiyakwamukela lokho. Ngiyabona manje ukuthi amadoda axabanise leli phuzu alungile. Kodwa-ke, abahambanga ngokwanele. Asihambanga ngokwanele. Manje sengiyabona ukuthi nayo indoda akufanele yithandazele ibandla.

Akekho umuntu wami kephalē (ikhanda lami). Manje yiliphi ilungelo noma yimuphi umuntu ongathi uzongithandazela?

Ukube uNkulunkulu ubekhona ngokwenyama, futhi sonke besihleli phambi kwakhe njengabantwana bakhe, owesilisa nowesifazane, umfowethu nodadewabo, ngabe ukhona ongacabangayo ukuthi uzosikhulumela noBaba, noma sonke besingathanda ukukhuluma naye ngqo?

Isiphetho

Kungomlilo kuphela lapho i-ore ihlanjululwa futhi amaminerali ayigugu avalelwe ngaphakathi angaphuma. Lo mbuzo ube yivivinyo kithi, kodwa ngicabanga ukuthi kukhona okuhle okuhle okuphumile kukho. Umgomo wethu, ngemuva kokushiya inkolo elawula kakhulu, ebuswa ngabesilisa, bekufanele ukuthi sibuyele enkolweni yokuqala eyasungulwa yiNkosi yethu futhi eyenziwa ebandleni lokuqala.

Kubukeka sengathi abaningi bakhulume ebandleni lase Korinte futhi uPaul akakuvumeli lokho. Iseluleko sakhe okuwukuphela kwaso ukuthi akwenze ngendlela ehlelekile. Alikho izwi lomuntu okwakumelwe lithuliswe, kepha zonke izinto zazenzelwe ukwakhiwa komzimba kaKristu. (I-1 Korion 14: 20-33)

Esikhundleni sokulandela imodeli yeLobukholwa futhi ucele umzalwane ovuthiwe, ovelele ukuba awuvule ngomthandazo noma avale ngomthandazo, kungani ungaqali umhlangano ngokubuza ukuthi ukhona yini ongathanda ukuthandaza? Ngemuva kwekutsi atfole umphefumulo wakhe emthandazweni, singambuta kutsi ngabe ukhona yini umuntfu lotsandza kukhuleka. Ngemuva kokuthi omunye athandaze, besingaqhubeka nokubuza kuze kube yilapho bonke abafisa ukuthi babe nezwi labo. Umuntu nomuntu ubengeke athandaze ebandleni kepha uzobe ezwakalisa imizwa yakhe ngokuzwakalayo ukuze bonke bezwe. Uma sithi "amen", kumane kusho ukuthi siyavumelana nalokho okushiwoyo.

Ngekhulu lokuqala, sitshelwa:

"Baqhubeka nokuzinikela emfundisweni yabaphostoli, ukuhlangana ndawonye, ​​ukudla kanye nemikhuleko." (Izenzo 2: 42)

Badla ndawonye, ​​okubandakanya ukukhumbula isidlo seNkosi sakusihlwa, bahlangana, bafunda futhi bakhuleka. Konke lokhu bekuyingxenye yemihlangano yabo, ukukhulekelwa.

Ngiyazi ukuthi lokhu kungahle kube sengathi kuyinqaba, njengoba sivela ngendlela yokukhonza ehlelekile kakhulu. Amasiko asungulwe kudala kunzima ukuwaphula. Kepha kumele sikhumbule ukuthi ngubani owasungula lawo masiko. Uma zingaveli kuNkulunkulu, futhi okubi kakhulu, uma zingena ngendlela yokukhulekelwa iNkosi yethu eyayikuhlosile, kufanele sibaqede.

Uma umuntu, ngemuva kokufunda lokhu, eqhubeka nokukholelwa ukuthi abesifazane akufanele bavunyelwe ukuthandaza ebandleni, sicela usinike okuthile kokhonkolo okufanele kuqhubeke emBhalweni, ngoba kuze kube manje, sisasala neqiniso elisungulwe ku-1 Korion 11 : I-5 ukuthi abesifazane bathandaze bobabili futhi bathandaza ebandleni lekhulu lokuqala.

Kwangathi ukuthula kukaNkulunkulu kungaba nathi sonke.
