Umbono wabaseBereya Cred

Sonke sazi manje ngembekiselo ye-PIMO[i] kithina esiphaphamele indlela yokungafezeki kweNhlangano nendlela ephumelelayo yokuchazwa kwemibhalo, nokho sihlala ebandleni ngenxa yesizathu esisodwa — ukwesaba ukulahleka. Ngeke sikubukele phansi lokhu kwesaba ukulahlekelwa konke ukuxhumana nomndeni nabangane, ngenxa yenqubomgomo yokugwema ngokwedlulele yeNhlangano, futhi siphakamise ukuthi lokhu kwesaba akusekelwa kahle futhi kufakwe engqondweni yabo bonke oFakazi BakaJehova ababhapathiziwe.

Yilokho kanye inhlangano ebeke ukuthi kulawulwe amashumi eminyaka. Singaqiniseka ukuthi labo abaphapheme (i-PIMO) futhi bahlala ebandleni basicasule kakhulu isiHlopha esiBusayo, futhi ezingqondweni zabo ngukuphela kwengozi yangempela ebandleni njenge "khadi yasendle" abangakwazi ukubikezela noma ukulawula.

Inkulumo ethi “ukuphuma esitokisini, kepha usesejele” - futhi elindele ukubulawa (ukususwa ekuhlanganyeleni) - ama-apropos kuma-PIMOs akulesi simo. Singenza ukucabanga kwenombolo yamalungu akule sayithi isebenzisa iziqubu okungenzeka ukuthi ziyi-PIMO ngokwazo (ngaphandle kwalokho, futhi njengabaningi bethu sibona ezinye izigaba zokushintsha ezifanayo kungakhathalekile ukuthi yini eyaba ukuqala kwe-PIMO yomuntu ngamunye uhambo.[Ii]

Labo abaye baphuma eNhlanganweni ngokungakhathali noma ngokususa ekuhlanganyeleni noma ekususeni ekuhlanganyeleni, ingxenye enkulu, baye bangathathi hlangothi, ngokuba nethonya elincane, uma kukhona, elinomthelela kumalungu akhuthele ebandleni ngokungakwazi ukudalula izingubo ezingcolile zeNhlangano. Ngakho-ke ubuhlakani obubi ngemuva kwezinqubomgomo ezidabukisayo zokugwema lapho izaba zokuthi “ibandla ligcine lihlanzekile” ngokusekelwe kweyoku-1 Korinte 5: 9-13[Iii] ukuthulisa noma yiliphi ilunga elicabanga nokubuza imibuzo. Emiqondweni ehlanganayo yeNdikimba Ebusayo, lokhu kuthathwa njengokuphonsela inselelo kulabo abazimisele bona Gnina bantu Of Doctrine[Iv] isimo.

Ngakho-ke ama-PIMOs ayisongo sangempela, ikakhulukazi lawo asebenzayo ngaphakathi kwebandla aba izishoshovu ze-inconcito.

The Journey

"Kuyadingeka entokozweni yomuntu ukuthi uthembekile ngokwengqondo kuye, ukungathembeki akuhambisani nokukholelwa, noma ukungakholelwa, kuhambisana nokuvuma ukuthi ukukholelwa lokho angakukholwa."

UThomas Paine

Labo bethu esesizithola silapha njengama-PIMOs ngokuqinisekile bahlobana namazwi kaPaine futhi babambana nalokhu nsuku zonke njengoba sithola ukwazisa okwengeziwe ngeyoku-1 Thesalonika 5:21, 1 kwabaseKorinte 4: 6, kanye nezEnzo 17:11 lapho kufundwa izincwadi ze-Watchtower noma beya kuzo imihlangano.

Abaningi bazibonele mathupha, njengamanje babhekene nakho, noma okungenani bangahambelana nokulandelana kwezigameko ezilandelayo ohambweni oluya ku-PIMO.

Ekuqaleni dissonance engqondweni kukhahlela. Umbono wokuthi "lokhu ngeke kube yiqiniso kuvela ku-APOSTATES!"

Fear kokungathembeki kweNdikimba Ebusayo kuqala bese kuKristu noJehova. (Lokho ukulandelana kwezinyathelo okudabukisayo.)

Athuke futhi amangale njengoba ugaya ujule ebufakazini obuqoshwe phansi (umfelandawonye weNhlangano Yezizwe, inhlazo zokuhlukunyezwa kwezingane, njll.)

Ukukhathazeka okukhulu, ukudangala, kanye nemicabango yokuzibulala. Ikakhulu uma thina lapho sizinikele khona eNdikimbeni Ebusayo njengeNceku ethembekileyo neqondayo; ubathembe ngokuphelele.

Ukusangana mayelana nokuvezwa ngisho nokufunda lokho okuthathwa njengezihlubuki zezihlubuki, kuba yinkcitho enkulu.

Zosizi ukuthi uwedwa ngaphandle komngani oyedwa noma ilungu lomndeni ongathulula isifuba sakho kuye.

Ukuhlushwa njalo kwengqondo ulawula sonke isikhathi sakho sokuvuka. (Ngaphandle kokuthi umuntu ukubone lokhu, kunzima ukukuchaza noma ukukuqonda.)

Intukuthelo enkulu kunoma yini nanoma ngubani oxhunywe eNhlanganweni.

Ukulahlekelwa ukholo. Abanye bamlahla ngokuphelele uNkulunkulu imicabango yokuthi “angenza kanjani ukuba ngikhohliswe?”

Isesha inetha futhi ngokuvamile ekugcineni ku-webhusayithi babanye ofakazi abathukuthele abasizayo ekondleni intukuthelo yabo, futhi ekugcineni ekuboneni abanye sebethumele inzondo yabo iminyaka engaphezu kwengu-20. CHA NGIYABONGA!

I-limbo engokomoya. Ukwesaba ukulahlekelwa kuyaqina; Ukungaboni kahle kukhahlela emuva ukuvikela ukuthula. Inqubo yokucabanga ihamba kanjena: Angikwazi ukuhamba. Kodwa uma ngihlala, khona-ke engikutholile kuhlala kunjenge-splinter engqondweni yami. Akukho ukubuyela emuva. Awukwazi ukukhipha insimbi.

Iqiniso elisha. Ukuyekethisa buthule kwenziwa. Ingqondo iqala ukuhlanganisa yonke into. Ukuphila okuphindwe kabili kwe-PIMOs manje sekuhamba. Wenza njalo wokuzivocavoca kwengqondo ukuzithethelela ukuthi kungani kufanele wenze lokhu.

Ekugcineni, kunalabo kithi abaye bamukela isimo se-PIMO okwamanje, njengoba senqaba ukukhokha "iphawundi lenyama" lokuhamba, elifunwa yinhlangano-noma singaba khona isizathu esengeziwe?

"Yini manje?" uthi. Cabanga, uma ungathanda, ukuthi singathola isichazamazwi esisha. Esikhundleni se-PIMO, kungani kungenzi i-PISA: ngokomzimba ku, ngokomthetho uVukani. Labo abakhetha ukuba yi-PISA bakwenza ukuze bakwazi ukusiza imindeni nabathandekayo babo ukuthi bavuke; okungenani kuze kube usuku abangasakwazi ukukubekezelela noma bavezwe.

Ungase ube nomuzwa wokuthi lokho kungukuhleleka okude. Yebo, ukuqina kwesihloko esilandelayo ukuxoxa ngalokho ngokuthuthukisa i-mindset entsha ye-PISA. Singabheka amasu nezindlela zokufeza izishoshovu zethu zokomoya ngenkathi zidingidwa. (Math. 10:16) Lokhu kuzoba okungenani indawo yama-PISA ukunikeza imibono nokuhlangenwe nakho njengengxenye yesixuku esikhulu esikhulayo se-PISA enhlanganweni.[V]
