It is without importance for the upward development of the soul in which surroundings it goes through its embodiment on earth. It is also completely inconsequential which earthly abilities man has and on which level he stands in earthly knowledge. Read more:

Today I read a message from Bertha Dudde, which well expresses how unimportant the material world around us is and how a clear separation between the spiritual and the worldly circumstances can be made and that the worldly things do not need to keep us from the achieving of spiritual things, exactly because they are without essential influence.

And also our standing in society, as for instance education, can remain without influence and does not need to be a reason to advance spiritually or not to advance spiritually.

This of course also means that all striving for good education, more worldly knowledge, abilities, material goods, reputation, family, is actually lost time. All these things do not help one to advance spiritually, on the contrary, most of the time they are obstacles to reach more soul maturity.

Now just imagine wanting to make this clear to parents or children. Just this one thought is already enough to recognize how worldly the world is today.

Here now the message:

 

Earthly surroundings, abilities and knowledge inconsequential for the maturing of the soul.

19. January 1942. B.D. NR. 2216.

It is without importance for the upward development of the soul in which surroundings it goes through its embodiment on earth. It is also completely inconsequential which earthly abilities man has and on which level he stands in earthly knowledge. Man can earthly have the highest merits; he can be well experienced in all earthly areas and abilities; he can also stand in a high degree of knowledge, and he can still stand considerably lower spiritually than a man who does not have all these merits in earth life and is highly developed spiritually; yes, often the spiritual maturity is far more likely recognizable there, where all earthly merits are ruled out because these people are more inwardly and more connected to God because they are not reduced in their soul work through any outer influences. From time to time it appears as if a well-shaped soul can only live in well-shaped body, as if truth could only be there where wisdom is taught or received, and as if the degree of knowledge depends on more or less highly developed intellectual thinking of man, and still exactly those apparent privileges can be an obstacle which jeopardize the maturing of man. The man, whose thinking is otherwise sharp and logical, can hold greatest error exactly in spiritual respect, but error will never help to spiritual progress. Only the life in love brings such, and that is why man definitely needs to have no worldly recognized merits and still can stand on a very high level spiritually because he possesses love, but only this really elevates man. The will to serve God can be just as strongly developed with a man who stands there quite small and low earthly, because precisely this will attracts God as eternal love, but this helps man or his soul first to spiritual maturity, and therefore a well-shaped soul can far earlier develop with a man who does not share his attention between spiritual and earthly experience. As it were he has it a little easier because the challenges from outside do not besiege him so, while the world man, who has exceptional abilities, but does not use these for the benefit of his soul, can stand far behind that soul. Amen. B.D. NR. 2216

 

On this website we also deal with scientific matters and therefore with scientists and scientists are often people to whom the above applies, they are often people with highly developed intellectual thinking and that might cause other people to be impressed by them.

Now this it is what the above message tells us that such people can hold greatest error exactly in spiritual respect.

And this is an important thing to know because it is easy to be impressed by such men and today’s world is very much impressed by scientists and scientists are today the people who basically tell the world what truth is.

So become aware that most scientists are atheists and materialist and are therefore spiritually dead und are unable to understand the simplest things.
