Hewa a me ka hoʻohaʻahaʻa?

i ka hana hewa a me ka hoʻohaʻahaʻa E pīhoihoi loa ʻo Martin Luther i kahi leka i kona hoaaloha ʻo Pilipo Melanchthon iā ia: E lilo ʻoe i lawehala, ai mana hoʻi ka hewa, akā ʻoi aku ka ikaika ma mua o ka hewa ka mea e hilinaʻi iā Kristo a ʻoliʻoli iā Kristo, he hewa ia. ua lanakila ka make a me ka honua.

I ka wā mua, ʻaʻole kūpono ke noi. No ke hoʻomaopopo ʻana i ka ʻōlelo lūlū a Luther, pono mākou e nānā iki i ke ʻano. ʻAʻole i kapa ʻo Luther i ka lawehala i kahi hana makemake. Ke kuea nei, ua olelo mai no ia i ka hewa loa ana, aka, aole ona makemake e palupalu ia makou no ka mea, makau paha, e haalele ke Akua i kona lokomaikai mai ia kakou. ʻO nā mea a mākou e hana ai i loko o Kristo, ua ʻoi aku ka ikaika o ka lokomaikaʻi ma mua o ka hewa. ʻOiai mākou i hana hewa i ka Malaki Malaki 10.000 i ka lā, ʻaʻole ikaika o kā mākou hewa i mua o ke aloha nui o ke Akua.

ʻAʻole kēia ka mea ʻaʻole ia e mālama i ka wā e ola pono kākou. Ua ʻike koke ʻo Paul i nā mea e hiki mai ana iā ia, a pane aku i nā nīnau: "Pehea mākou e ʻōlelo ai? E hoʻomau anei mākou i ka hewa a lilo i aloha ka mana? pane ʻia penei: E mamao loa! Pehea mākou e makemake ai e ola i ka hewa ma hope o ka make ʻana? » (Roma 6,1-2).

Ma hope o Iesū Kristo, ua kiʻi ʻia mākou e hahai i ka hiʻohiʻona o Kristo, e aloha i ke Akua a me ko mākou hoalauna. I ka manawa a mākou e noho ai i kēia ao, pono kākou e ola me ka pilikia e lawehala kākou. I kēia kūlana, ʻaʻole mākou e ʻae i ka makaʻu e hoʻopalapiha nui iā mākou e nalo nui i ka hilinaʻi o ke Akua. Akā, hoʻolaha mākou i ko mākou mau hewa i ke Akua a hilinaʻi nui aʻe i kāna lokomaikaʻi. ʻ putlelo ʻo Karl Barth i kēia manawa: ʻae ke papaʻi iā mākou e hana hewa i ka hewa a ʻoi loa hoʻi i ka lokomaikaʻi.

Ua ʻike nā Karistiano āpau he hewa ka lawehala. Akā, pono e hoʻomanaʻo ʻia nā mea he nui e hana ai i ka wā e hana hewa ai lākou. Heaha ka pane? E hai i kou mau hewa me ka pale ʻole ʻana i ke Akua a noi mai me ke kala. E komo ʻoe i ka noho aliʻi o ke aloha me ka hilinaʻi a wiwo ʻole e hāʻawi aku ai iā ʻoe i kona lokomaikaʻi a ʻoi loa aku.
