Man is always at liberty to do and to think otherwise than it is divine will.

That is divine will that man decides freely which way he walks that it is left to him to go both ways, up or down, and that he now decides himself, without any force. Read more:

Today I read a message about free will and free decision.

Here follows this message coming to us via Bertha Dudde:

 

Free decision

25. March 1941. B.D. NR. 1864.

That is divine will that man decides freely which way he walks that it is left to him to go both ways, up or down, and that he now decides himself, without any force. Because only this has worth before God what he thinks and does freely out of himself, to which he gives his consent completely uninfluenced. Because his entire nature is reflected in this. He is neither forced to the one or the other, but to which his heart drives him, that is decisive for eternity. And therefore neither external living conditions nor divine stroke of fate are determining for the higher development of the human soul, but solely his free will decides these, and therefore the same possibility is given to every man to reach that state of maturity on earth when he makes use of his free will properly, i.e. uses it for the approach towards God. Because when the will is directed towards God, so he will also subordinate himself to God in his thinking and acting and do all that what leads him closer to the eternal divinity, and then also his higher development is ensured. Man is indeed instructed what he is to do; his thinking is directed towards the right path, however the free decision is incumbent on himself. He is also always at liberty to do and to think otherwise than it is divine will because it would not earn him spiritual progress to fulfil this in a forced state, and that is why only that is to be valued what man does out of innermost impulse. When he fulfils the ordered task only purely as in duty bound, then they only have the value of a performance of a duty but which can earn man no higher degree of maturity, whereas the least act of neighbourly love in free will, i.e. without incentive or hint for an reward, put the soul into a higher degree of maturity, because the gift of free decision was used in a way pleasing to God. One man can seemingly perform great works of neighbourly love, but when he does it in a certain compulsion or under influence through other men, then he will still earn no great reward, because only that degree of love is decisive, in which the act was accomplished, therefore how far love of a man determines the will of him to his acting. A man able to love also lets his will become active because who stands in love he also longs to God out of innermost impulse, therefore love, free will and approach towards God always go together. Where the one is, is also the other, but the state of compulsion, no matter from which side it would be exerted, is always hindering the maturity of the soul. Therefore divine will is allowed to be taught, but never be urged through coercive measures to be obeyed because this would be no spiritual progress at all. Amen. B.D. NR. 1864.
