Uma UNkulunkulu Good, Kungani Kunokuhlupheka?

Ukuwa Man

Image of Christ as the Man of Sorrow by Albrecht DurerUNkulunkulu akazange adale umuntu ahlupheke.

Wenza Adamu no-Eva, abazali bethu bokuqala, ukuba ungenakonakala ubuhlungu nokufa.

Ukuhlupheka wamenywa ezweni lapho bafulathela uNkulunkulu. Ngalowo mqondo, ukuhlupheka Ukudalwa kaNkulunkulu kodwa yomuntu, noma, okungenani, ngenxa yezenzo Elomuntu.

Ngenxa noqhekeko phakathi komuntu noNkulunkulu kubangelwa Ukungalaleli kuka-Adamu no-Eva, lalo lonke uhlanga lwesintu kuye kwadingeka akhuthazelele ukuhlupheka (bheka Genesise 3:16 futhi kaPawulu Incwadi eya kwabaseRoma 5:19).

Nakuba singase siwamukele leli qiniso njengoba yaba isisekelo sokholo lwawo, ngokuqinisekile ayenzi ke yimuphi kulula ukubhekana nokuhlupheka ezimpilweni zethu siqu. Ebhekene nazo ukuhlupheka, singase sizithole ulingeka embuzweni ubuhle bukaNkulunkulu futhi ngisho ukhona kakhulu. Nokho iqiniso ngendaba iwona UNkulunkulu akalokothi abangele ukuhlupheka, Nokho, nakuba ngezinye izikhathi Uyakwenza ukuvumela ke kwenzeke.

UNkulunkulu muhle ngemvelo, Ngakho, akanamandla okubangela okubi. Uma evumela ububi lifika, Wenza kanjalo njalo ukuze alethe ezinhle enkulu (Bheka kaPawulu Incwadi eya kwabaseRoma 8:28).

Lokhu kunjalo e Fall of Man: UNkulunkulu waluvumela lolu silahlekelwe injabulo esemhlabeni Edene kuphela ukwenza kutholakale kithina, ngomhlatshelo weNdodana yaKhe, ubukhazikhazi aphakeme Wezulu.

Ukuthandaza Ensimini yaseGetsemane ngobusuku bokuboshwa kwaKhe, UJesu wasinikeza isibonelo esihle kakhulu kangakanani ukuba asabele lapho ukuhlupheka kufika kithi. Okokuqala wabuza uBaba ukuthatha ubuhlungu Him. Wabe esenezela, "Hhayi intando yami, kodwa sakho, kwenziwe " (Luka 22:42).

The Big Isithombe

Ukuthi ikhuleke lumkhuleko kudinga ukwethembeka okukhulu e ubuhle bukaNkulunkulu: nalapho leyo Yena ayifisayo injabulo yethu nakakhulu kunathi futhi ukuthi Uyazi ngempela yini esilungele. Ukuze sibone ukuthi, ukuze Kunalokho, ukuthi uNkulunkulu akubonisi uthando sokuvumela ukuhlupheka ozakwahlulela Him amandla ethu okucabanga womuntu kungagcini. "Wawukuphi wena uma mina wabeka isisekelo somhlaba?"Angase nibuze nathi. "Ngitshele, uma ukwazi ukuqonda " (UJobe 38:4). Asikwazi ukubona konke uNkulunkulu abona ngayo. Ngeke siwaqonde zonke izindlela ezifihliwe ngawo Usebenzisa kwezimo ezinzima ukuqondisa ezinhliziyweni zezingane yakhe maqondana ukuphenduka nokuthethelelwa ukufeza kithi sibe abaphelele ngokomoya. Nakuba sivame ukwenza iphutha endleleni kokubona lo pilo njengoba kusizuzisa, UNkulunkulu ubona esithombeni ebanzi, isithombe okuphakade. Yena kufanele uyaqonda kusizuzisa ukuba inhloso enze thina: ukuphila futhi bajabule nabo ingunaphakade Ezulwini.

Ukuza ebukhoneni bukaNkulunkulu eZulwini kudinga ukuthi Singaguqulwa: ukuthi isimo sethu somuntu sokuba nesono lingcweliswe; ngoba umbhalo uthi:, "Akukho ongcolile uzangena [Izulu]" (ukubona Encwadi YesAmbulo 21:27). (Ukuze uthole olunye ulwazi ngalesi sihloko, sicela ubone ikhasi lethu ku Purgatory, Intethelelo & Imiphumela.

Le nqubo ukungcweliswa kuhilela ukuhlupheka. "Ngaphandle kokuba uhlamvu lukakolweni luwele emhlabathini futhi lufe,"Kusho uJesu, "Ihlala yodwa; kodwa aluba lusifa, luthela isithelo sande. Lowo othanda ukuphila kwakhe ulahlekelwa yikho, futhi ozonda ukuphila kwakhe kuleli zwe uyakukulondela ukuphila okuphakade " (John 12:24-25).

Kubuhlungu ukuba hlukanisani nezinamathiselo yethu ngokungadingekile izinto zaleli zwe, kodwa mayelana nomvuzo oyotholwa nathi phansi kwazo izwe elizayo kuwufanele izindleko. Umntwana ongakazalwa ngokuqinisekile ungathanda ukuba bahlale ukwazana emnyama esibelethweni sikanina. Uye waphila khona izinyanga eziyisishiyagalolunye; iqiniso kuphela uyazi. Athathwe kule ndawo ukhululekile futhi zilethwe ningukukhanya kwezwe kubuhlungu. Nokho Kubani phakathi kwethu uyazisola, noma ngisho uyakhumbula, ubuhlungu lokuzalwa kwakhe, kokungena kwakhe kuleli zwe?

Ngakho kakhulu asiyikuphunyuka lethu elingumhlaba ubuhlungu ndaba kithi kanye sesingene ngokoqobo Ezulwini. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi inhlupheko singase ekhuthazelela manje, noma angakhuthazela esikhathini esizayo, siduduzeka ukwazi ukuthi izinhlungu zalokhu kuphila zingezesikhashana-ukuthi kuphela, too, ngeke usuku luphele-nokuthi nokwethaba kweZulu kuqedile futhi okuphakade.

The Book of yesAmbulo (21:4) uthi, "[UNkulunkulu] kuyakuba iyosula izinyembezi zonke emehlweni abo, futhi ukufa ngeke kusaba khona, abayikuba ulilela futhi sengikhala ngenxa yobuhlungu, ngoba izinto zangaphambili zidlulile. "Nansi indlela uNkulunkulu uyakwazi ukumelana akasiboni, izingane zakhe azithandayo, ahlupheke lapha isikhathi emhlabeni. Kusukela ekuboneni yakhe, ukudlula ukuhlupheka kwethu yasemhlabeni ngo kweso, ngenkathi ezimpilweni zethu naye ezulwini, injabulo yethu, kuyoba ngaphandle ekupheleni.

I EngeyobuKristu isethwe ngaphandle kuzo zonke ezinye izinkolo ngoba yilona kuphela lifundisa ukuthi uNkulunkulu waba ngumuntu–nalowo kithi–ukuba ihlupheke futhi ife ngenxa yethu izono. "[H]e Walimalela izono zethu,"Kusho u-Isaya umprofethi (53:5), 'Wayengakhulumi ilinyazwe ngenxa yobubi bethu; phezu kwakhe kwaba lokujezisa wenza ukuthi nathi wonke, futhi ngemivimbo yakhe thina aphulukiswa. "

Khumbula, ukuthi uJesu, ukungabi kukaNkulunkulu, kwaba (futhi) ongenasono, okwamanje wakhe ukuhlupheka babubukhulu ngenxa yethu, futhi thina, uhlanga lwesintu, abangu ahlengwe ngokusebenzisa Passion likaJesu Kristu.

Kuyiqiniso ukuthi ukuhlupheka kwakhe ngenxa yethu akazange wasusa zonke ubuhlungu ezimpilweni zethu. Kunalokho, njengoba Umphostoli uPawulu akuloba encwadini yakhe Incwadi eya Phillipians (1:29), "Kuye pha you ukuthi ngenxa kaKristu kufanele abagcini nje kuphela ngokukholelwa kuye, kodwa futhi nokuhlupheka ngenxa yakhe."

Ngakho, ebunzimeni bethu sesibuthakathaka nakakhulu naKhristu futsi sita ngisho ukwabelana isenkazimulweni yaYo (bheka kaPawulu Incwadi yesibili eya kwabaseKorinte, 1:5). Ngakho eduze UJesu uwuveza nalowo ohlushwa ogulayo iba umfanekiso eziphilayo ngaYe. Umama Teresa wakhuluma ngokuvamile ukubona ubuso leyo miphefumulo elihluphayo, ayizalela ukubuyiswa kusuka emiseleni of Calcutta, kakhulu ebusweni likaJesu.

Image of Hell by Dirk BoutsNgakho, Passion kukaKristu uye azisuswanga ezinhluphekweni zethu, kepha kuguculwa ke. Njengoba uPapa John Paul Elikhulu wabhala,"Esikhathini Cross noKristu akuzange kuhlonishwe kuphela iyona Redemption kufezwa ukuhlupheka, kodwa futhi ngokuhlupheka kwabantu uqobo sikhululiweI " (ukulondoloza Passion 19).

Ukuhlupheka lapho uNkulunkulu evumela ukuba angene ezimpilweni zethu, lapho enikwe nimunye zikaKristu Esiphambanweni, ukuthwala izinga wokuhlenga futhi kungenzeka ahlinzekwe ngayo kuNkulunkulu ngenjongo insindiso yemiphefumulo. Okwethu, ke, ukuhlupheka akulona uthando olungenayo injongo; ngokuphawulekayo, kuyindlela yokuthola umusa kaNkulunkulu. Ubuhlungu ithuluzi lapho uNkulunkulu angase uwukwenza ukungcweliswa yethu, ngendlela izihlahla ezingokomoya Omunye angase athi.

The Incwadi eya kumaHebheru (5:8) kusitshela uJesu, Ngokwakhe,

"Wafunda ukulalela ngalokho ahlupheka ngakho." Futhi incwadi uyaqhubeka, “Ngokuba uJehova uyala kuye abathandayo, futhi ethethisa wonke indodana asitholayo. Kuyinto isiyalo kufanele ubekezelele. Nkulunkulu uniphatha njengamadodana; ngoba iyiphi indodana kukhona bani uyise ayenzela hhayi isiyalo? ... [uBaba] esiyala ukuze sisizakale, ukuthi sihlanganyele ubungcwele bakhe. Konke okwamanje isiyalo esibonakala ubuhlungu kunokuba emnandi; ngasemuva kuyabathelela isithelo esihle sokulunga labo abahlakahliswe yikho uqeqeshwe ngalo.” (12:6-7, 10-11)

Ukuqonda nomqondo ukuhlupheka wokuhlenga, Paul Saint wavuma Incwadi yakhe eya kwabaseKolose 1:24, "Enyameni yami mina ukuqedela okusileleyo osizini lukaKristu ngenxa yomzimba wakhe, okungukuthi zeSonto. "

Lokhu akusho, kunjalo, ukuthi Passion kukaKristu lalingu nganoma iyiphi indlela enganele. Umhlatshelo wakhe egameni wethu akusona kahle ngokuphelele futhi newusizo. Nokho, uma kucatshangelwa Passion lakhe, UJesu ubiza ukuba siphinde sivuke isiphambano sethu sokumlandela; ukukhulumela ngomunye nomunye, belingisa Him, ngokuthandaza nangokutadisha ukuhlupheka (bheka Luka 9:23 futhi kaPawulu Incwadi yokuqala ayibhalela uThimothewu 2:1-3).

Ngokufanayo, Encwadini yakhe yokuqala (3:16), UJohane oNgcwele ubhala, "Ngalokhu siyazi uthando, ngoba yena wasibekela phansi impilo yakhe; lathi; nathi sifanele ukubeka ukuphila ngenxa yabazalwane. "

"Okholwa kimi, lowo uyokwenza nemisebenzi engiyenzayo,"Isho iNkosi; "Futhi imisebenzi emikhulu kunale Uzokwenzani, ngokuba ngiya kuBaba ' (John 14:12). Ngakho, UJesu ufisa ukuzibandakanya kwethu ku-umsebenzi wensindiso hhayi ngenxa yesidingo kodwa bamkhonza ngenxa yothando, uyofana nendlela kukababa wasemhlabeni ibukeka zihlanganisa indodana yakhe emisebenzini yakhe. intercession lwethu ngomunye nomunye, Ngaphezu kwalokho, udonsa phezu kucocisana kukaKristu eliyingqayizivele futhi wodwa kanjani noNkulunkulu (ukubona Incwadi Okokuqala sikaPawulu kuThimothewu, aphinde, 2:5).

Ukuze aqiniseke, konke esikwenzayo kuxhomeke ngalokho akwenzele futhi ngeke kwenzeke ngaphandle-ke. Njengoba uJesu wathi kukaJohane 15:5, "Mina ngingumvini, nina ningamagatsha. Lowo ohlala kimi, mina kuye, Uyena uthela izithelo eziningi, ngoba ngaphandle kwami ​​ningenze lutho. "Ngakho, Kuyinto ukuzimisela kwethu siqu ahlupheke Yena kanye naYe ukuthi "entula,"Ukusebenzisa elithi kaPawulu, e zikaKristu.

Isimemo iqhaza emsebenzini kaKristu wokuhlenga ngu ekuhlanganiseni ukuhlupheka kwethu laKhe ukuze nithole insindiso yethu kanye insindiso abanye ngempela induduzo elimangalisayo. Saint Therese ka Lisieux wabhala:

“Emhlabeni, ku ovukayo ekuseni Ngangivame ukucabanga ngalokho cishe kuzokwenzeka noma uyabukeka noma ezikhathazayo ngokusobala emini; futhi uma Ngayibona izenzakalo nje izama Ngavuka Edangele. Manje kuba impela omunye indlela: Ngicabanga ubunzima nokuhlupheka ezilindele kimi, futhi Sengiyakuvuka siyajabulisa kakhudlwana futhi egcwele isibindi ngaya ngokuya kulibona namathuba nihlola uthando lwami uJesu ... . Khona-ke engimangayo kwesiphambano yami usibeke ninobubele phezu umcamelo ngenkathi engigqoka, futhi ngithi kuye: 'UJesu wami, nguwena wasebenza ngokwanele, wakhala ngokwanele phakathi neminyaka emithathu amathathu yokuphila kwakho kulomhlaba abampofu. Thatha manje ekuphumuleni kwakho. ... Ithuba lami kuba ahlupheke futhi ukulwa '” (Ngamacebo kukhumbula).

Image of Haywain by Hieronymus BoschNgesikhathi ehlushwa nimunye iNkosi uJesu iyethemba–nakuba kubuhlungu–ukuhlupheka ngaphandle kwakhe, ebabayo futhi ezingenalutho.

Kulezo zimo, akukho Inani ukuhlupheka, nezwe siphela kuwo–ufune ukuyigwema ngazo zonke izindlela–noma usola umuntu okubangela usizi lwakhe. Ngokwesibonelo, abanye ukubona ubuhlungu futhi ufuna njengezijeziso sikhishwe nguNkulunkulu phezu nabangakholwayo, noma ukuhlupheka nokufa ekugcineni kusukela, uthi, umdlavuza wamaphaphu njengoba olwalubangelwa ukuntula sokholo. Empeleni, kunabantu abakholelwa ukuthi uNkulunkulu uhlose elinye nelinye ikholwa kobana ukuphila ngokuphelele ukhululekile ekuguleni isifo; kukithi umuntu ukunquma noma Ukuba mpofu kuyisono uma uNkulunkulu uthembisa nokuchuma.

IBhayibheli, kunjalo, refutes ngokuphelele nalo mbono iyiphi inombolo ye izikhathi, kuhlanganise iNtshumayelo weNtaba e Mathewu 5, “Babusisiwe labo abalambele futhi bomele nobulungisa, ngoba uyakusutha,” futhi Luka 6:20, isb, "Ubusisiwe wena abampofu ...,"Futhi" Maye kini abacebile " (Luka 6:24; cf. Mathewu 6:19-21; the Incwadi kaJakobe 2:5).

UJobe, iBhayibheli elimbiza ngokuthi "umuntu ongasoleki futhi oqotho" (UJobe 2:3), ukugula wahlupheka, the kokufa kwabathandekayo, kanye ukulahlekelwa yizinto zakhe.

The Virgin Mary, ngubani wayengenasono (Luka 1:28), ukwenqatshwa wahlupheka, nakhaya, ushushiso, kanye nokulahlekelwa yiNdodana Yakhe "inkemba ngeke ibhoboze umphefumulo wakho siqu futhi,"OSimeyoni wayemambulele kuye (Luka 2:35).

UJohane uMbhapathizi, eyandulela likaJesu, "Wayegqoka isambatho soboya bekamela" futhi wayedla 'izinkumbi noju lwezinyosi zasendle " (Mathewu 3:4). UThimothewu wayehlushwa ezingamahlalakhona izifo esiswini (bheka kaPawulu Incwadi yokuqala ayibhalela uThimothewu 5:23); futhi uPawulu kwadingeka ukuba ahambe wakhe osebenza naye, noTrofimu, ngemuva ngenxa yokugula (ukubona S kaPawuluecond Incwadi eya kuThimothewu 4:20).

Ngaphezu kwalokho, lapho Saint Peter walinga uJesu ukudela Passion, UJesu wasabela, "Yana emva kwami, USathane! Wena yaba isithiyo kimi; * ngokuba anisibo ohlangothini Nkulunkulu, kodwa abantu ' (Mathewu 16:23).

In iqiniso, noma imiphi imizamo ukuthola udumo ngenkathi ngokudlula Cross yamademoni ngokwemvelo (cf. Tim Ukudla, ecaphuna Fulton J. sheen, "Izimpendulo Catholic Live" ohlelweni lomsakazo [February 24, 2004]; kuyatholakala at catholic.com).

Ngasekupheleni kokuphila kwakhe, Peter efanayo, owayekade obesoliwe uJesu zokufuna kuYe ukuba sigweme ukuhlupheka, bamemezela othembekile:

"Kulokhu [efeni lasezulwini] ujabule, Nokho manje okwesikhashana kungase kudingeke sibhekana nokuvivinywa okuhlukahlukene, ukuze ubuqotho ukholo lwakho, kwenu okuyigugu kunegolide okuyinto Nokho okonakalayo lihlolwe umlilo, Kungenzeka redound ukuze ngukubongwa, nodumo, nokutuseka ekwambulweni kukaJesu Kristu. " (kaPetru Okokuqala Letter 1:6-7)

Ngakho, Ingabe Kukufanelekele Ukuzifaka It?

Ukuze siphendule lowo mbuzo, Singathandaza Saint Paul e Incwadi yakhe eya kwabaseRoma 8:18: "Ngicabanga ukuthi izinhlupheko + zenkathi yilesi sikhathi samanje kabusha awubalulekile Ngokuqhathanisa ngenkazimulo kwambulwa kithi."

Ngaleyo ndlela-ke, kumelwe sikhohlwe umklomelo: Ngalolo suku umuntu, ngomusa kaNkulunkulu, ngamunye wethu lapha oyobona iNkosi uJesu Kristu eMbusweni waKhe; bheka ubuso bakhe elikhanyayo; nilizwa izwi lakhe ayizingelosi; wamanga izandla zakhe ezingcwele, izinyawo, kwalimala ngenxa yethu. Kuze kufike lolo suku, singakwazi nimemezele like Saint Francis of Assisi e The Way of the Cross, "Thina simdumise Wena, O uKristu, futhi situsa Wena, ngoba oNgcwele wakho Cross Wena owukhululile emhlabeni. Amen. "
