Nguthixo kuphela ongandigweba?

Ndiyakuthanda wayethetha ukuthanda kukaThixo ebomini bethu, kwanaxa umntu akavumelani nokundixelela. Ukuncokola Ungafumana ixesha lenene ngokukhawuleza nangona-ingakumbi xa uthetha ngemiba edala. Yinto akazange kumnandi ukuxelela umntu ukuba ucinga sesingalunganga. Ngoko zama ukuba qaphela ngamazwi am, kwaye nje balathe oko utsho uThixo, kunokuba iimbono zam. Kanye clockwork, nangona, ngaxa lithile ebudeni incoko, baza ndisikhuphe inqala: "Kodwa oko iBhayibhile ithi ukuba bagwebe? Nawe ngethuba nidlobe phezu ndinyana, huh?"Zange lutshitshe.

kuMateyu 7 uYesu uthi, "Musani ukugweba, okanye nawe uya kugwetywa. "Kwanabo thina zange ndayiva ukufunda iBhayibhile azazi le nxalenye intshumayelo ilizwi lakhe ilizwi. Lo isenokuba Ivesi eyaziwa kakhulu kakuhle iBhayibhile namhlanje. Ke kuni mhlawumbi kuba abaninzi abawuqondi

Singayiqondi le vesi ithetha thina lungazi njani kodwa ubumele ukuba sithandane. Ngoko ke kubalulekile ukuba sizibuze umbuzo: UYesu uthetha ntoni xa usixelela ukuba bagwebe?

Oko akuthethi

Kwimpelaveki ephelile, Mna nomfazi wam saya workshop lomtshato ecaweni yethu. Njengoko sasihamba nayiphi na indawo eyingontsi umtshato wethu, kwafuneka ukuba baxoxe okulungileyo, ezimbi, kunye ledada. Siye amathuba amaninzi sakhuthazana, kodwa nathi amathuba ukunazisa iintsilelo. Ngexesha iingxoxo zethu, umfazi wam yandinceda sibone iinkalo apho ndiya isilela, apho ndingelelanga mna ukuba njengokuba onothando kufuneka njengokuba ndibe. Ngaba ngokungathobeli umyalelo kaYesu 'ukuba ndigwebe mna? Andicingi njalo.

UYesu akuthethi ukuba akulunganga ukwenza nayiphi izigwebo yokuziphatha. Nje ziindinyana nje ezimbalwa kamva, UYesu uxelela abaphulaphuli bakhe ukuba benze izigwebo malunga ngubani besabelana inyaniso. Ke kwivesi 15 yesi sahluko, UYesu uyalela ukuba ndigwebe abo abathi abaprofeti, ukubona ukuba kuthetha ngokwenene kuThixo okanye ukuba zima beziingcuka ngezambatho zeegusha. Not to mention the numerous other passages in Scripture that command us to make varying types of moral judgments. UYesu akuthethi ukuthi zonke umgwebo engalunganga. Ke ukuba unyanisekile kwiziqu, musa akuthethi ukuba mhlawumbi.

Abantu abaninzi bathi ukuba singaze sigwebe nabani, kodwa ke musani ngokwenene ukuba. They don’t think it’s wrong to call the cops on the drug dealers selling dope in front of their house. And they certainly don’t think it’s wrong to turn off the TV when that greedy preacher starts begging for their money. Kukwakho isigqebelo. Xa sisithi umntu ngenxa nigweba, kanye, wenza umgwebo yokuziphatha ngaloo mntu. Kwimeko nganye kwezi meko, izigwebo kwenziwa malunga nezenzo zabanye.

kanti, xa isigwebo singamaxhoba naphi ukuya ekhaya, akulunganga ngokuzenzekelayo. Ngoobani sifuna ukwenza izigwebo malunga kwabanye? Makhe sicinge ngento ukuthini uYesu xa usixelela ukuba ngumgwebi.

Yintoni na le ayithethayo

Sisebenzisa umgwebi ilizwi kakhulu ngeendlela ezahlukeneyo. Kusenokwenzeka ukuba uthetha egweba talente okanye ugweba ityala lenkundla. Lunokuthetha izinto ezininzi ezahlukeneyo. Ngokufanayo, igama lesiGrike UYesu uthi "ukugweba 'akasoloko athetha into enye. Ngoko ke kufuneka sijonge abaseleyo kwesi sicatshulwa kwanoNowadiya iBhayibhile xa sifuna ukuqonda intsingiselo oko.

Njengoko uqhubeka ufunda isicatshulwa, kuye kucace ukuba uYesu ehlasela kuhlobo oluthile yomgwebo. Usebenzisa umfanekiso hilarious endoda uphawula isibi esisesweni othile, kodwa Akayinaki inyani ukuba unalo log omkhulu kwawayo. Oko njengendoda ze amadlala umngxuma iijini zakho. UYesu wayengayigwebi naluphi na uhlobo lwesigwebo; Uye ngokumgweba self-amalungisa, imigwebo oluyintshembenxa.

kwindinyana 5 uthi, "Mhanahanisindini, wukhuphe kuqala umqadi yethu lweliso lakho. "Ngaphambi sisazama kugweba abanye, kufuneka besizicalula. Bahanahanisindini kubamba abantu migangatho ngokwabo ngoyaba. Yaye ngoxa abantu self-amalungisa kuba isipho ekhethekileyo bechaza iimpazamo zakho, bacinge abayiboni awabo. UYesu uthi oko ingxaki. Kwaye usixelela ukuba uThixo uya kubagweba nathi imbuyekezo.

Yinto ukubaxa ukuze aligwebe rhabaxa abanye aze eme phezu kwabo ngokungathi ubomi bakho igqibelele. NguThixo umgwebi kuphela unezandla ezihlambulukileyo. Abanye bethu ngabantu zimdaka, esalatha omnye kwi siphango.

Ubona akazange athi, "Thatha log ngaphandle, kwaye musani ukubuxhalela amehlo abanye abantu. "Okunene uthi, "Okokuqala umqadi ngaphandle iliso lakho, yaye uya kwandula ke ubone ngokucacileyo ukuba isibi nabazalwana bakho iliso. "Yena akuchazele sizihlole, ke ukunceda umzalwana ngaphandle.

Yinto embi kum uqaphele into eziyingozi ebomini bakho, kodwa ukuba awuboni ngathi akukho apho. Kutheni na ke umntu Ndiyakuthanda kuqhubeka uphila ngendlela etshabalalisayo? Ukuba Ndiyakuthanda, Ndiza kukuxelela inyaniso naxa kubuhlungu. Kodwa kufuneka kusekelwe phezu standard kaThixo, eyam. Kwaye kufuneka uwenze sethu othobekileyo uzithatha ndiyayidinga lubabalo enye onokuyenza.

Nceda bamlulamele uMateyu 7:1. Kodwa musa ukulibala malunga Galati 6:1: "Bazalwana, ukuba kukho mntu nimbhaqe esona, nina bangaboMoya, mlulekeni ngobunono. "Kufuneka omnye komnye.

    This is the most accurate definition of that verse. Thank you brother I have been struggling with this. Thanks my brother keep doing what you doing!
    Your Brother in Christ!

  2. Charlesimpendulo

    As my pastor just went over this a week ago it is fresh in my mind. Pastor Brian saidjudge is not the proper word if you read the Greek and read it in context.He went on to say a better translation would have beendon’t sentence as a Judgeor act like a judge (old testement style). Making a judgement and passing a sentence are 2 different things.

  3. nokaJaredimpendulo

    This is really useful in my life right now. I’ve recently been having discussion with my grandma who is not a believer, and I’m trying to show her God’s love. I will confess my sin to her and ask for her forgiveness, and she will forgive but she will rant about how bad I am at certain things. I know I am wrong because of the conviction I already feel from God, but it bothers me a little bit because she does not see her own sin. She just breaks me down. I smile and love her. I understand that I have issues with loving my family, but it bothers me inside a little bit when she doesn’t acknowledge her own sin and is so quick to acknowledge mine. This is some help though. Enkosi

  4. Ezra_of_Israelimpendulo

    Very good way of putting it and analysis of scripture. inkosi ikusikelele. What is Love? I’ve been spending a long time on that simple question……woah

  5. PastorBenJohnsonimpendulo

    Oku ngoku! To go along with this, Paul says in 1 Korinte 5:12: “What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside.

    It is our job as believers to hold our brothers and sisters in Christ accountable. kodwa, we need to be examining ourselves throughout! Great blog Trip Lee!

  6. tonyimpendulo

    Enkosi Uhambo, this is an important part of scripture to understand correctly. Ndiyabulela kuwe ngenxa yale post. You have put into words what i have been thinking. I’m a youth pastor, and this is something ive been wanting to talk with my students about. I will be sure to use this post and expand on these points. Again thank you, for all that you do and will do. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family.

  7. wesleyimpendulo

    Kuhle. I’m so tired of people [Christians are at the forefront, along with many others] throwing this verse out like it trumps all. It’s used as a get out of ________ free card. Not at all what the writer was saying. Thanks for articulating.

  8. Dayamiimpendulo

    Awesome teaching here. I’m always blessed by your posts. I thank God for using you the way he does. You are not just called to make music, but to the pulpit.

    God bless u and your family!

  9. Sharon C. Jamesimpendulo

    Thank you so much for sharing this thought. I will be sharing your post and pray that the many that have made this their banner, understand it exactly as Christ meant it, as well as Galatians 6:1. Hlala wambusisa.

  10. Christophimpendulo

    I like to quote back Jesus in John 7:24 – “judge with a righteous judgement.That disarms the objection and leads into an opportunity to explain what he means, as you did in your post.

  11. MJimpendulo

    igama Good. I have heard that we should not condemn, but can righteously judge. As in I can say something about a friend who isshacking upbut in doing so, I’m not being hypocritical because I’m not doing it.

  12. MarkKingimpendulo

    Thanks for elaborating on this Trip. This is a very important subject tin this generation. So much entitlement exists. Love the irony you pointed out, kakhulu.

    I see the perception of each judgment as being the problem. Our competitive natures trick us into thinking that someone telling us we are wrong in some dirt if way is an attempt of exaltation. If we see this as a love gesture, it takes on a completely different dynamic.

    One more thing that I caughtYou phrased this one particular part in a way that could confuse people. You said, ” Jesus doesn’tmeanto say all judgment is wrong. Ke ukuba unyanisekile kwiziqu, we don’tmeanthat either.

    Just for clarity sake, perhaps a better way to phrase this is thatWe shouldn’t interpret this as Jesus sayingall judgment is wrong.

    A quick read through, and someone might go from reading this to thinking, “Oh, Jesus didn’t mean to say that?” When I’m quite sure Jesus meant to say exactly what He said. It’s Ll in interpretation.

    I know what you meant. Just holding you to the highest if literary standards. I trust you understand why I said that.

    Appreciate your work (all if it, not just the music)! Keep grinding brother!

  13. EManimpendulo

    Deep truth being spoken on this one.
    God bless your ministry.
    I often think that when we fully understand our state of sinfulness, we then approach our neighbor with compassion and love.

  14. anajcruzimpendulo

    i loved this!! really insightly, encouraging, aaaand convicting!!!
    awesome reminder of what it means to love one another!! thanks brother! inkosi ikusikelele!!

  16. JosiahCarterimpendulo

    Ewe! Thank you so much for writing this! This has been on my mind so much lately, especially when I see that wordjudge”. I’m definitely sharing this!

  17. davidimpendulo

    Enkosi. One of the most accurate descriptions of that verse and what it means that I have seen. Every Christian should examine themselves through Gods eyes when speaking to another.

  18. carlosAvilesimpendulo

    kuyakhuthaza kakhulu. And I try and fail. I catch myself from time to time and I know I should look within first before I speak and help someone get back on a Holy path.
    Enkosi Trip Lee.

  19. TeriRimpendulo

    It’s our motive behind what we say that makes the judgment of our brothers helpful or harmful. Am I thinking, “What you’re doing is wrong! The Bible says so. You need to fix it…” Or is it, “That’s gonna cause pain and I know what that’s like. I care about you and don’t want that for you…”

    Like Trip said, in other places we’re told clearly to judge false teachers.

    It’s clear we need the Holy Spirit’s discernment to make right judgments, so we should be connecting with Him before, during, and after!

    Another good point Trip made is, they won’t hear us even if our heart is in the right place, if we’re not living authentically before God and our brothers.

  20. EJDimpendulo

    Excellent article! “By their fruit, ye shall know them.Clearly Christ whats us to be circumspect in reviewing othersmost importantly, when we proclaim the Gospel, the first part is explaining how a person is separated from a Holy God due to sin (that’s a moral judgement!) Then we proclaim that faith in Jesus Christ (His redemptive work on the Cross and the Empty Tomb) is the answer to man’s separation from God, the Father! The Gospel message is incomplete if
    we leave out mankind’s LOST position (the Law judges us!) But Christ offers grace to us sinners. As John Newton wrote, “I once was LOST, but now am FOUND!”

  21. Tatendaimpendulo

    Amen ibhulorho. I live in Zimbabwe and that verse is even popular here!!! I preach the gospel and I have noticed more times than I care to remember that non-believers and Christians who are not living right use this verse as a shield against correction. Yinto lusizi, really sad

  22. Darnellimpendulo

    I fully agree with that interpretation of judging according to Matthew 7. I also wanted to add to that by saying that we as Christians are not tojudgethe world or those not in Christ, kodwa thina “judgethe body of Christ or the church. God says that he himselfjudgesthe world and not us his children. 1 Korinte 5:12-13

    Thanks so much for posting this. I think this message is so necessary for Christians in all walks of life to hear. We need to start loving each other the way Jesus called us to which means addressing areas that need to be addressed in compassion.

  29. Kathrynimpendulo

    Please pray that I will have an open heart to the truth; that I will know it and be set free; that I will have faith in Jesus and repentance of my sin. That I will receive his grace. That I won’t be offended by my need but by sin. Enkosi.

  32. Michaelimpendulo

    Ukuba ngokwenene ucinga ngayo, “Don’t judge me.”, is actually judgemental.

    If someone is trying to help you, and you accuse them of judging you……Nngokobuchwepheshe, you are judging them. (And wrongly accusing them at that)

    Nyaniseka, you can judge me if you want, I may need correction. (“Correct in love”) Just don’t judge me for my past or by anything but the Word.

  33. Mercyimpendulo

    Wowu. This was a great post. Lately, I’ve been trying to remind myself of Matthew 7 but kind of forgot what it meant. And we do need to help each other out but not be harsh about it. Ndivumelana ngokupheleleyo. It’s kinda sad seeing ppl harshly criticize other ppl and seeing the criticized feel broken. The criticizing are obviously not perfect but they seem to not even realize it. It’s upsetting. More people need to live by Matthew 7. And the last verse was great to. People aren’t going to want to walk a path where everyone on the sidelines are spitting on them.

    so here is a question for you. for the past few years i have been working on not jugding anyone for anything. as a addict pretty much everyone in the world jugdes you and this means that somehow these people now know everything about you. even what your thinking or what your gonna do or even how you will act or they may tell you how you feel about something. i really dont get how people can do this. its really bad. i have come to find out there are so many people out there that hate me, and they have never even met me. theres no way to control what pops into our head. mental pre jugdment can be used to prepare yourself personally for things you think may occure cause of what you notice about someone. but if you just pay good attention and can pick up on little things that show fact about someone is that still jugding? and then theres the question about assumption. by far the worst way to jugde somebody. i dont get it. even though you just told this person that you dont trust them to carry out some task because of (usually no reason) OTHER THEN thats just how i feel and is what I KNOW you will do. of course if this person has been known to fail, history can and will repeat, but to tell someone how they feel, think, or how there going to act is bullshit. its basically blind jugdment. and either that person will now feel encompetant and wont even try, or someone like me, will guentee to prove that person so wrong that they will never say that again. but even though you prove yourself time and time again. same assumptions. iingcinga? i could go on all day.
