BAAL OU DEUS?



















Então, enviou Acabe mensageiros a todos os filhos de Israel e ajuntou os profetas no monte Camelo. Então, Elias se chegou a todo o povo e disse: Até quando coxeareis entre dois pensamentos? Se O Senhor é Deus, seguio-O; se é baal, segui-o. Porém o povo nada lhe respondeu.
Realmente, o povo não tinha como justificar sua crença em baal, estava decepcionado, amargurado, sob uma seca talvez sem precedentes, a pobreza grassava, o clamor subia desesperando o coração do rei Acabe, que estava totalmente impotente diante da miséria do seu povo.

Quem havia fechado os céus para que não chovesse certamente não fora baal, o suposto deus, feito por arte humana, a quem Israel estava prestando cultos, e sim o Criador do Universo, com o qual aquele deus não poderia competir. Mas tanto o rei como o povo estavam cegos.

Elias, que profetizara a seca, era alvo da ira do rei. Ele o procurara sem êxito, como a uma agulha no palheiro, com o propósito de matá-lo; e eis que de repente surge o grande profeta do Senhor e diz ao rei para ajuntar todo o povo no monte Carmelo, onde lança o seu desafio: Dêem-se-nos, pois, dois novilhos; escolham eles para si um dos novilhos e, dividindo-os em pedaços, o ponham sobre a lenha, e não lhe metam fogo; eu prepararei o outro novilho, e o porei sobre a lenha, e não lhe meterei fogo. Então, invocai o nome do senhor vosso deus e eu invocarei O nome do Senhor; e há de ser que o deus que responder por fogo esse é que é Deus. E todo o povo respondeu e disse: É boa esta palavra.
Tomaram o novilho que lhes fora dado, preparam-no e invocaram o nome de baal, desde a manhã até o meio dia, dizendo: Ah! Baal, responde-nos! Porém não havia uma voz que respondesse; e, manquejando, se movimentavam ao redor do altar que tinham feito. Ao meio dia, Elias zombava deles, dizendo: Clamai em altas vozes, porque ele é deus; pode ser que esteja meditando, ou atendendo necessidades, ou de viagem, ou a dormir e despertará.

E eles clamavam em altas vozes e se retalhavam com facas e com lancetas, segundo o seu costume, até derramar sangue. Passado o meio dia, saltaram e gritaram até que a oferta de manjares se oferecesse; porém não houve voz, nem reposta, nem atenção alguma. Então Elias restaurou o altar do Senhor, mandou que deitassem água em abundância e disse: Ó Senhor, Deus de Abraão de Isaque e de Israel, fique hoje sabido que Tu És Deus em Israel, e que eu sou Teu servo e que, segundo a Tua palavra, fiz todas estas coisas. Responde-me, Senhor, responde-me, para que este povo saiba que Tu, Senhor, És Deus e que a Ti fizeste retroceder o coração deles. Então, caiu fogo do Senhor, e consumiu o holocausto, e a lenha e as pedras, e a terra, e ainda lambeu a água que estava no fogo. O que vendo todo o povo, caiu de rosto em terra e disse: O Senhor é Deus! O Senhor é Deus! 1ª Reis 18:21-39.

Ah! como O Senhor gostaria de que todo o povo hoje, como foi naquele dia, reconhecesse que só Ele é Deus poderoso e suficiente para fazer infinitamente mais do que tudo que pedimos ou pensamos, e que com essa consciência destruísse todos os baalins no altar do seu coração e se inclinase somente diante do Deus criador dos céus e da terra, e que em Nome do Seu Filho Jesus Cristo, fossem feitas todas e quaisquer petições. Feliz a nação cujo Deus é O Senhor.
Guiomar Barba.

Paulo Sempre disse...

Pena que a Igreja atravesse uma hora de inquietação, de autocrítica, dir-se-ia de autodestruição. O homem sem referências religiosas credivéis, fica sem «norte» sem rumo e perdido num labirinto medonho...
É triste ouvir pessoas dizer: «quanto mais entro nos meios eclesiásticos, masis me perco e vejo menos possibilidade de encontrar Cristo.»
A culpa, salvo melhor opinião, é, também, da Igreja.
