920. Kilesisahlukwana kuchazwa inkonzo kabanzi yabantu beSonto laseMandulo, okungukuthi, ichazwa nge “althari nomnikelo walo wokushiswa”, okwakuyizici ezisemqoka zenkonzo efanekisayo. Nokho kumele kuqalwe ngokudalula ukuthi inkonzo yabantu beSonto laseMandulondulo yayinjani, nokuthi yasukela kanjani inkonzo yokukhonza iNkosi ngesu lemifanekiso enkonzweni yeSonto laseMandulundulo. Kumuntu weSonto laseMandu-londulo yayingekho enye inkonzo ngaphandle kwenkonzo engaphakathi efana neyasezulwini, ngokuba abantu baleloSonto babesondelene noma bexhumene nezulu kangangoba babentonye nalo. Lokho kuxhumana kwabe kungubona noma ukuqonda okufana nokwasezulwini osekukhulunyiwe kaningana ngakho ngenhla. Ngakhoke ekubeni labobantu babengahlukene nezingelosi, babengabantu bangaphakathi. Imbala babezizwa futhi beziqon-da ngezinzwa zomzimba izinto zangaphandle zomzimba nezemhlaba wemvelo, kodwa babengazinaki. Kuzozonke izinto ababeziqonda ngesu lezinzwa zabo zomzimba babeqonda okoBunkulunkulu nokwezulu. Njengesibonelo sokuthi lapho bebona intaba ephakeme babengabi nomqondo wentaba kepha babebanomqondo wokuphakama, nangesu lalomqondo ngentaba ephakeme babeqonda izulu neNkosi. Yingakho kwaze kwathiwa iNkosi “ihlala ekuphakameni okuphakeme kakhulu”, yabizwa nango “Phakeme noPhezulu kakhulu”, nokuba kamuva iNkosi ikhonzelwe ezintabeni. Babeqonda kanjalo ngakhokonke ababekubona ngamehlo. Esinye isibonelo salokhu wukuthi lapho bekhangela ukusa babengaqondi ukusa kosuku kodwa babeqonda isenzeko sasezulwini esifana nokusa kanye nokusanguluka kwemiqondo yabantu. Kungenxa yalokhu ukuba iNkosi yayibizwa ngoKusa, ngeMpumalanga nangeNtathakusa. Nalapho bebona umuthi, izithelo zawo, namaqabunga awo babengazinaki lezizinto kodwa ngazo babebona umfanekiso womuntu. Ngesithelo babebona uthando nesisa senhliziyo, nang-amaqabunga babebona inkolo. Kungalesisizathu ukuba umuntu weSonto wayengafaniswa nomuthi nanepharadi-si, nokukuye kufaniswa nezithelo namaqabunga njekuphela, kodwa futhi wayebizwa ngomuthi.

[2] Sinjalo isimilo sabantu abagunywa yimiqondo yasezulwini yezingelosi. Bonke abantu bangaba nolwazi lokuthi umqondo kabanzi ubusa yonke imininingwane eyizingxenye zawo. Kunjalo nangazonke izinto ezizwiwa nezaziwa ngezinzwa zomzimba, kanye nalezo ezibonwayo nezizwiwa ngezindlebe. Imbala umuntu kazinaki lezozinto, ngaphandle kuphela kangangebanga zingena emqondwe ni kabanzi womuntu. Ake sibheke isibonelo somuntu onesimilo sokuhlala eneme ; konke lowomuntu akuzwayo nakubonayo kuba sengathi kuyamthokozisa futhi kuyamhlekisa. Kepha konke okuzwiwa nokubonwa wumuntu ohlala edabukile noma elusizi kuba sengathi kumbangela usizi futhi kuyamdabukisa. Kwenzeka kanjalo nakwezinye izinhlobo zezimilo, ngokuba inkanuko yabo kabanzi ikuzozonke izingxenye eziyibumbile futhi yenza ukuba leyo naleyogxenye ibonwe futhi izwi we enkanukweni kabanzi. Ezinye izinto noma izici kaziveli nokuvela, kodwa kuba sengathi kazikho noma kazisho lutho. Kwakunjalo nakumuntu weSonto laseMandulondulo. Nomayini ayeyibona ngamehlo akhe yayinobuzulu noma yayimumethe okungokwasezuwini, ngakhoke konke ayekubona, kuye kwakuba sengathi kuyaphila.

[3] Konke lokhu kuchachisa ukuthi inkonzo eNgcwele yomuntu weSonto laseMandulondulo yayinjani, ukuthi kwakuyinkonzo yangaphakathi, ingeyona nakancane eyangaphandle. Kodwa lapho iSonto liya ngokuya libhubha ezizukulwaneni zalo, lokhokuqonda noma ukubona okwakuwumphumela wokuxhumana kwaleloSonto nezulu ngqo kwaya ngokuya kushabalala, kwaqala nesimo sezinto esisha. Ezintweni lezozizukulwane ezazizazi ngesu lezinzwa zomzimba, zazingasaboni lutho lwasezulwini njengoba kwakwenzeka kuqala, kodwa zasezibona okwase-mhlabeni wemvelo kuphela. Nalapho beya ngokuya bebona okwasemhlabeni kuphela, nokubona kwabo okwase-zulwini kwakuya ngokuya kushabalala. Ekugcineni, isizukulwane sokugcina esasiphila ngaphambi kukaZamcolo, sasingasaboni noma sasingasaqondi noluncane lwasezulwini ezintweni ezazisibona ngamehlo, kodwa sibona kuphela okomhlaba, okwezinzwa, nokwemvelo. Yilokhu okwaba nomphumela wokwahlukanisa uluntu nezulu, kwadala ukuba ukuxhumana kwezulu noluntu kungabibikho ngaphandle kokuxhumana ngendlela ejikeleza noma eqhele kakhulu. Kusukela lapho, ukuxhumana komuntu nomhlaba kamoya kwaguquka kwaba wukuxhumana nesi-hogo, nasesihogweni umuntu wathola umqondo wakhe kabanzi, okuphuma kuwo yonke imiqondo yezingxenye noma yemininingwane, njengoba kusanda kuphawulwa. Ngalenkathike, lapho umqondo wasezulwini uziveza kuye, wawungasho lutho. Ekugcineni lesosizukulwane esase sixhumene nesihogo sasingasafuni ngisho ukuvuma ukuthi kukhona okukamoya noma okwezulu lamazulu. Kanjalo isimo somuntu saguquka sagumbuqa.

[4] Ngenxa yokuthi iNkosi yayikwazi kungakenzeki ukuthi isimo somuntu siyogumbuqa ngalendlela, yahlinzeka ukulondolozwa kwemfundiso emalungana nenkolo ukuze abantu bazi ngesu layo ukuthi okwezulu lamazulu kuyini nokuthi okwezulu likamoya noma okukamoya kuyini. Leyomfundiso yayaqoqwe kumalungu eSonto laseMandu-londulo ngabantu esesikhulumile ngabo ababizwa ngoKhayini nababizwa ngoEnokhi. Yingakho kuthiwa uKhayini wabekwa uphawu ukuze abambonayo bangambulali, kuthiwa futhi uEnokhi wathathwa wuNkulunkulu. Malungana nalababantu bobabili, ungabheka iSahluko 4:15, ezinombolweni 393, 394, nakwiSahluko 5:24. Leyomfundiso yayi-fundisa kuphela ngezinto eziyizimpawu, kanjalo ngezinto eziyinkinga. Okungukuthi, yayifundisa ngezinto zemvelo ezazifanekisa izinto zikamoya, njengezintaba, ezazifanekisa izinto zasezulwini neNkosi; ukusa nempumalanga, na-kho okwakufanekisa izinto zasezulwini neNkosi; izinhlobonhlobo zemithi nezithelo zazo, ezazifanekisa umuntu nezinto zasezulwini ezikuyena; njalo. Lezizinto zabe ziyizihloko zaleyomfundiso, nezabe ziqoqelwe ndawonye zis-uselwe ezimpawini ezifanekisayo zeSonto laseMandulondulo. Nendlela yokubhala kwabantu ababenaleyomfundiso yayifuze indlela okubhalwe ngayo leyomfundiso. Nanjengoba kuleyomifanekisa yemfundiso yabo babethanda, im-bala babebona, okoBunkulunkulu nokwezulu, nangenxa futhi yokuthi imfundiso kwakungeyasemandulondulo, baqala futhi bavunyelwa ukwenza imifanekiso yemfundiso isisekelo senkonzo yabo. Kwaqala kanjalo ikukhonzela kwabo ezintabeni, ezixhotsheni zemithi, phakathi kwemithi, nokumisa izinsika noma izithombe, kwalandela uku-khonza ealthari nokushisa umnikelo, okwagcina kuyizici ezimqoka kunazozonke kuyoyonke inkonzo yabo. Len-konzo yaqalwa yiSonto laseMandulo, yanda ezizukulwaneni zalo nasezizweni ezaziwomakhelwane, kanye nezinye izinto eziningi ezibuye zidalulwe kamuva ngomusa weNkosi woBunkulunkulu.
