126 kapangidwe ka utsogoleri wa tchalitchi

Mutu wa mpingo ndi Yesu Khristu. Amawulula chifuniro cha Atate ku Mpingo kudzera mwa Mzimu Woyera. Kudzera m'Malemba, Mzimu Woyera umaphunzitsa ndi kupatsa mphamvu mpingo kutumikira zosowa za anthu. Mpingo wa Worldwide Church of God umayesetsa kutsatira utsogoleri wa Mzimu Woyera posamalira mipingo yake komanso poika akulu, madikoni, madikoni ndi atsogoleri. (Akolose 1,18; Aefeso 1,15-23; Yohane 16,13-15; Aefeso 4,11-16)

Utsogoleri mu mpingo

Popeza ndi zoona kuti Mkhristu aliyense ali ndi Mzimu Woyera ndipo Mzimu Woyera amatiphunzitsa aliyense wa ife, kodi pakufunika utsogoleri mumpingo? Sizingakhale zachikhristu koposa kudziwona tokha ngati gulu lofanana pomwe aliyense ali woyenera kugwira ntchito iliyonse?

Mavesi osiyanasiyana a m’Baibulo, monga 1. Johannes 2,27, zikuwoneka kuti zikutsimikizira lingaliro ili - koma pokhapokha ngati silikugwirizana ndi zomwe zikuchitika. Mwachitsanzo, pamene Yohane analemba kuti Akristu safunikira kuwaphunzitsa, kodi anatanthauza kuti iwo sayenera kuphunzitsidwa ndi iye? Wati musamachite chidwi ndi zomwe ndikulembazi chifukwa simukufuna ine kapena wina aliyense ngati mphunzitsi? Inde, sindizo zimene ankatanthauza.

Yohane adalemba kalatayi chifukwa anthuwa amafunika kuphunzitsidwa. Anachenjeza owerenga ake za Chikhulupiriro Chachikunja, motsutsana ndi malingaliro akuti chipulumutso chimapezeka mwa ziphunzitso zachinsinsi. Iye adati zoonadi za chikhristu zimadziwika kale kutchalitchi. Okhulupirira sangafunikire chidziwitso chachinsinsi kupatula chomwe Mzimu Woyera adabweretsa kale ku mpingo. Yohane sananene kuti akhristu akhoza kukhala opanda atsogoleri kapena aphunzitsi.

Mkhristu aliyense ali ndi udindo wake. Aliyense ayenera kukhulupirira, kupanga zisankho za momwe angakhalire, kusankha zomwe ayenera kukhulupirira. Koma Chipangano Chatsopano chimafotokoza momveka bwino kuti sitimangokhala anthu wamba. Ndife gawo la gulu. Mpingo ndiwosankha mofananamo kuti udindowu ndiwosankha. Mulungu amatilola kusankha zomwe timachita. Koma sizitanthauza kuti chisankho chilichonse chimathandizanso kwa ife kapena kuti onse ndi ofanana molingana ndi chifuniro cha Mulungu.

Kodi Akhristu Amafunikira Aphunzitsi? Chipangano Chatsopano chonse chimasonyeza kuti timazifuna. Mpingo wa ku Antiokeya unali ndi aphunzitsi monga imodzi mwa maudindo awo a utsogoleri3,1).

Aphunzitsi ndi imodzi mwa mphatso zomwe Mzimu Woyera amapereka kwa mpingo (1. Korinto 12,28; Aefeso 4,11). Paulo anadzitcha mphunzitsi (1. Timoteo 2,7; Tito 1,11). Ngakhale pambuyo pa zaka zambiri za chikhulupiriro, okhulupirira amafunikira aphunzitsi (Aheb 5,12). Yakobo anachenjeza za chikhulupiriro chakuti aliyense ndi mphunzitsi (Yakobo 3,1). Tingaone kuchokera m’mawu ake kuti Mpingo nthaŵi zambiri unali ndi anthu ophunzitsa.

Akristu amafunikira chiphunzitso chowona m’chowonadi cha chikhulupiriro. Mulungu amadziwa kuti timakula mosiyanasiyana komanso kuti tili ndi mphamvu m’madera osiyanasiyana. Iye amadziwa chifukwa poyamba ndi amene anatipatsa mphamvu zimenezo. Sapatsa aliyense mphatso zofanana (1. Akorinto 12). Koposa zonse, amawagawira kuti tigwire ntchito limodzi ku ubwino wa anthu onse, kuthandizana wina ndi mnzake, osati kukhala opatukana ndi kuchita zaumwini.1. Korinto 12,7).

Akhristu ena ali ndi luso lotha kuwonetsa chifundo, ena kuzindikira kwauzimu, ena othandizira thupi, ena kuwalangiza, kuwongolera, kapena kuphunzitsa. Akhristu onse ali ndi mtengo wofanana, koma kufanana sikutanthauza kuti amafanana. Tili ndi maluso osiyanasiyana, ndipo ngakhale onse ndi ofunikira, si onse ofanana. Monga ana a Mulungu, olowa chipulumutso, ndife ofanana. Koma tonse sitili ndi gawo lofanana mu Mpingo. Mulungu amagwiritsa ntchito anthu ndikugawa mphatso zake momwe angafunire, osati molingana ndi ziyembekezo za anthu.

Kotero, mu Mpingo, Mulungu amaika aphunzitsi, anthu omwe angathe kuthandiza ena kuphunzira. Inde, ndikuvomereza kuti ngati gulu lapadziko lapansi nthawi zonse sitisankha aluso kwambiri, komanso ndikuvomereza kuti aphunzitsi nthawi zina amalakwitsa. Koma izi sizithetsa umboni wowonekera bwino wa Chipangano Chatsopano kuti Mpingo wa Mulungu uli ndi aphunzitsi, kuti ili ndi gawo lomwe tingayembekezere pagulu la okhulupirira.

Ngakhale kuti tilibe utumiki wathu womwe umatchedwa “aphunzitsi”, tikuyembekezera kuti mu mpingo muzikhala aphunzitsi, tikuyembekezera kuti abusa athu adziwe mmene angaphunzitsire.1. Timoteo 3,2; 2 Tim 2,2). Mu Aefeso 4,11 Paulo akufotokoza mwachidule abusa ndi aphunzitsi mu gulu powatchula mwagalamala ngati kuti udindowu uli ndi udindo wawiri: kudyetsa ndi kuphunzitsa.

Utsogoleri wolowezana?

Chipangano Chatsopano sichinena za utsogoleri wa mpingo. Mpingo wa ku Yerusalemu unali ndi atumwi ndi akulu. Mpingo wa ku Antiokeya unali ndi aneneri ndi aphunzitsi (Machitidwe 15,1; 13,1). Ndime zina za Chipangano Chatsopano atsogoleri amawatcha akulu, ena amawatcha adindo kapena mabishopu, ena amawatcha madikoni.4,23; Tito 1,6-7; Afilipi 1,1; 1. Timoteo 3,2; Ahebri 13,17). Izi zikuwoneka ngati mawu osiyana pa ntchito yomweyo.

Chipangano Chatsopano sichimalongosola mwatsatanetsatane za utsogoleri wa atumwi, aneneri, alaliki, abusa, akulu, madikoni, ndi mamembala a mpingo. Mau oti "za" sangakhale abwino ayi, chifukwa zonsezi ndi ntchito zautumiki zomwe zimapangidwa kuti zitumikire Mpingo. Komabe, Chipangano Chatsopano chimalimbikitsa anthu kumvera atsogoleri a mpingo, kugwirizana ndi utsogoleri wawo3,17). Kumvera kwakhungu sikuli koyenera, komanso kukayikira kwakukulu kapena kukana.

Paulo akufotokoza zaulamuliro wosavuta pouza Timoteo kuti aike akulu m'mipingo. Monga mtumwi, woyambitsa tchalitchi ndi wowalangiza, Paulo adayikidwa pamwamba pa Timoteo, ndipo Timoteo anali ndi mphamvu yosankha yemwe ayenera kukhala mkulu kapena dikoni. Koma uku ndikulongosola kwa Efeso, osati dongosolo lamabungwe onse amtsogolo amatchalitchi. Sitikuwona zoyesayesa zilizonse zomanga mpingo uliwonse ku Yerusalemu kapena ku Antiokeya kapena ku Roma. Izi sizikanakhala zopindulitsa m'nthawi ya atumwi.

Ndiye tinganene chiyani za Mpingo lero? Titha kunena kuti Mulungu amayembekezera kuti mpingo ukhale ndi atsogoleri, koma sanena kuti atsogoleriwo akuyenera kutchedwa ndani kapena momwe ayenera kukhalira. Adasiya izi kukhala zotseguka kuti zichitidwe pakusintha komwe Mpingo umapezeka. Tiyenera kukhala ndi atsogoleri m'mipingo. Zilibe kanthu kuti amatchedwa chiyani: Pastor Pierce, Elder Ed, Pastor Matson, kapena Servant Sam atha kukhala ovomerezeka chimodzimodzi.

Mu Worldwide Church of God, chifukwa cha mikhalidwe imene timakumana nayo, timagwiritsa ntchito chimene chingatchedwe chitsanzo cha “episcopal” cha ulamuliro (liwu lakuti episcopal limachokera ku liwu Lachigiriki lotanthauza woyang’anira Episkopos, limene nthaŵi zina limatembenuzidwa kukhala bishopu). Tikukhulupirira kuti iyi ndi njira yabwino kwambiri yoti mipingo yathu ikhale ndi maphunziro abwino komanso okhazikika. Chitsanzo chathu cha utsogoleri wa maepiskopi chili ndi mavuto ake monga zitsanzo zina, chifukwa anthu amene amadalira onse ndi olakwa. Timakhulupirira kuti, malinga ndi mbiri yathu komanso malo athu, kalembedwe kathu ka bungwe kangathe kutumikira mamembala athu bwino kuposa chitsanzo cha utsogoleri wa Congegrational kapena Presbyterian.

(Kumbukirani kuti mitundu yonse ya utsogoleri wa tchalitchi, atha kukhala a Congegrational, Presbyterian kapena Episcopal, atha kukhala osiyanasiyana. Maonekedwe athu a utsogoleri wa Episcopal amasiyana kwambiri ndi a Eastern Orthodox Church, Anglican, Episcopal Church, Roman Katolika kapena Lutheran Churches).

Mutu wa mpingo ndi Yesu Khristu ndipo atsogoleri onse mu mpingo akuyenera kuyesetsa kufuna chifuniro chake m'zinthu zonse, m'moyo wawo komanso m'miyoyo ya mipingo. Atsogoleri akuyenera kuchita ngati Khristu pantchito yawo, ndiye kuti akuyenera kuyesetsa kuthandiza ena, osati kudzipindulitsa. Mpingo wamba siwochita gulu lothandiza mbusa kuchita ntchito yake. M'malo mwake, mbusa amakhala ngati woyang'anira amene amathandiza mamembala kuchita ntchito yawo - ntchito ya uthenga wabwino, ntchito yomwe Yesu akufuna ayigwire.

Akulu ndi atsogoleri auzimu

Paulo anayerekezera mpingo ndi thupi lomwe lili ndi ziwalo zosiyanasiyana. Umodzi wake suli wofanana, koma kugwirizana kwa Mulungu wamba ndi kaamba ka chifuno chimodzi. Mamembala osiyanasiyana ali ndi mphamvu zosiyana ndipo tiyenera kuzigwiritsa ntchito kuti zipindule kwa onse (1. Korinto 12,7).

Mpingo wa Worldwide Church of God nthawi zambiri umasankha akulu aamuna ndi aakazi kuti akhale atsogoleri azibusa. Amasankhanso atsogoleri aamuna ndi aakazi (omwe angatchulidwenso kuti madikoni) pomuyimilira.

Kodi pali kusiyana kotani pakati pa "kudzozedwa" ndi "proxy"? Mwambiri, kudzoza kumakhala poyera komanso kosatha. Wothandizila akhoza kupangidwa mwachinsinsi kapena pagulu ndipo akhoza kuchotsedwa mosavuta. Mphamvu za woweruza milandu sizichepetsedwa ndipo sizingasinthidwe kapena kusinthidwa. Kukonzanso kumatha kuchotsedwa, koma izi zimangochitika mwapadera.

Mu Mpingo wa Padziko Lonse wa Mulungu tilibe kufotokoza kokhazikika, kokwanira pa udindo uliwonse wa utsogoleri wa mpingo. Akulu amatumikira ngati abusa m’mipingo (m’busa woyamba kapena wothandizira). Ambiri amalalikira ndi kuphunzitsa, koma osati onse. Ena amakhazikika pakuwongolera. Aliyense amagwira ntchito moyang'aniridwa ndi m'busa wamkulu (woyang'anira kapena episkopos wa mpingo) malinga ndi luso lawo.

Atsogoleri a utumiki wa mpingo amasonyeza kusiyana kwakukulu, ndipo aliyense (tikuyembekeza) akutumikira monga momwe angathere potumikira zosowa za mpingo. Mbusa amene ali ndi udindo waukulu atha kuwapatsa mphamvu atsogoleriwa kwanthawi yochepa kapena yosawerengeka.

Abusa amachita ngati otsogolera oimba. Sangakakamize aliyense kusewera ndi ndodo, koma amatha kuwongolera ndi kuwongolera. Gulu lonselo ligwira ntchito yabwinoko kwambiri pomwe osewera akutenga zomwe apatsidwa. Muchipembedzo chathu, mamembala sangathe kuchotsa abusa awo. Abusa amasankhidwa ndikuchotsedwa ntchito mdera lawo, komwe ku US kumaphatikizapo oyang'anira tchalitchi, mogwirizana ndi akulu akumawadi.

Nanga bwanji ngati membala akuganiza kuti m’busa ndi wosakhoza kapena akusokeretsa nkhosa? Apa ndipamene dongosolo lathu la utsogoleri wa ma episcopal limayamba kugwira ntchito. Nkhani za chiphunzitso kapena utsogoleri ziyenera kukambidwa ndi mbusa poyamba, kenako ndi mtsogoleri wa ubusa (woyang’anira kapena episcopus wa mbusa wa chigawo).

Monga momwe mipingo imafunikira atsogoleri am'deralo ndi aphunzitsi, momwemonso abusa amafunikira atsogoleri ndi aphunzitsi. Ichi ndichifukwa chake timakhulupirira kuti likulu la Worldwide Church of God limagwira mbali yofunikira potumikira mipingo yathu. Timayesetsa kukhala gwero la maphunziro, malingaliro, chilimbikitso, kuyang'anira, ndi kulumikizana. Ndife opanda ungwiro, koma tikuwona mayitanidwe omwe tapatsidwa. Ndizo zomwe tikufuna.

Maso athu akuyenera kukhala pa Yesu. Ali ndi ntchito kwa ife ndipo ntchito yambiri ikuchitika kale. Tiyeni timuyamikire chifukwa cha kuleza mtima kwake, mphatso zake, ndi ntchito yomwe yatithandiza kukula.
