Kodi mumadzimva kuti ndinu wolakwa?

Pali atsogoleri achikhristu omwe amayesetsa kupangitsa anthu kudzimva kuti ndi olakwa kuti athe kuchita zochuluka kutembenuza ena. Abusa ali kalikiliki kulimbikitsa mipingo yawo kuti ichite ntchito zabwino. Ndi ntchito yovuta ndipo simungadzudzule abusa ngati nthawi zina amayesedwa kuti agwiritse ntchito mfundo zomwe zimapangitsa anthu kudzimva kuti ndi olakwa kuti awasunthire. Koma pali njira zomwe zili zoyipa kwambiri kuposa zina, ndipo imodzi mwazo zoyipa kwambiri ndi lingaliro losagwirizana ndi Malemba loti anthu ali ku gehena chifukwa chakuti anthu onse simunawalalikire uthenga wabwino asanamwalire. Mutha kudziwa munthu yemwe akumva kukhala wolakwa komanso wolakwa chifukwa chonyalanyaza kugawana uthenga wabwino ndi munthu yemwe wamwalira. Mwina inunso mumamva chimodzimodzi.

Ndikukumbukira mtsogoleri wachinyamata wachikhristu wa mnzake wapasukulu akuwuza gulu lachinyamata nkhani yakuda yakukumana ndi bambo komwe adamva kufunitsitsa kuti amufotokozere za uthenga wabwino koma adalephera kutero. Pambuyo pake adamva kuti mwamunayo adagundidwa ndi galimoto tsiku lomwelo ndipo adamwalira. "Munthuyu tsopano ali ku Gahena ndipo akumva kuwawa kosaneneka," adauza gululo. Kenako, atakhala kaye modekha, adawonjezeranso, "ndipo ndine amene ndikuchititsa zonsezi!" Adawauza kuti ndichifukwa chake adakumana ndi maloto owopsa ndipo adagona atagona pakama pake chifukwa chowona kulephera kwake, komwe munthu wosauka uja adzapilira masautso amoto kwamuyaya.

Kumbali ina, iwo amadziwa ndi kuphunzitsa kuti ‘Mulungu anakonda kwambiri dziko mwakuti anatumiza Yesu kuti adzapulumuke, koma kumbali ina amaoneka kuti amakhulupirira kuti Mulungu amatumiza anthu ku helo chifukwa timalephera kulalikira uthenga wabwino kwa iwo . Izi zimatchedwa "cognitive dissonance" - pamene ziphunzitso ziwiri zotsutsana zimakhulupirira nthawi imodzi. Ena a iwo amakhulupirira mosangalala mphamvu ndi chikondi cha Mulungu, koma panthaŵi imodzimodziyo amachita ngati kuti manja a Mulungu anamangidwa kuti apulumutse anthu ngati sitinapambane kuwafikira panthaŵi yake. Yesu ananena mu Yoh. 6,40: «Pakuti chifuniro cha Atate wanga ndi ichi, kuti yense wakuwona Mwana ndi kukhulupirira mwa iye akhale nawo moyo wosatha; ndipo Ine ndidzamuukitsa iye tsiku lomaliza.

Chipulumutso ndi ntchito ya Mulungu, ndipo Atate, Mwana, ndi Mzimu Woyera amachita bwino kwambiri. Ndi dalitso kukhala nawo pantchito yabwinoyi. Tiyeneranso kudziwa kuti Mulungu nthawi zambiri amagwira ntchito ngakhale kuti sitingakwanitse. Ngati mwakhala mukuvutitsidwa ndi chikumbumtima chifukwa cholephera kulalikira uthenga wabwino kwa munthu asanamwalire, bwanji osaperekanso kwa Yesu? Mulungu sali wosasamala. Palibe amene amatambasula zala zake ndipo palibe amene ayenera kupita ku Gahena chifukwa cha inu. Mulungu wathu ndi wabwino, wachifundo ndi wamphamvu. Mutha kumukhulupirira kuti adzakhalapo kwa aliyense, osati inu nokha, mwanjira imeneyo.
