Worldly-churchy organizations are just the work of man.

The inner core can far more likely come to maturity without the shell, which is already just the work of men and does not favour spiritual ascent development very much. The many organizations have not shown great spiritual successes because mankind became more and more de-spiritualized, despite these human institutions. Read more:

The many organizations have not shown great spiritual successes because mankind became more and more de-spiritualized.

The many organizations have most of the time not led men to God, but to his opponent and this will come more and more to light the more the fight against these many organizations increases and the majority of their members turn out to be followers of Antichrist.

Here a message from Bertha Dudde:

 

Religious organizations. Transitoriness.

16. May 1943. B.D. NR. 2742.

The complete disintegration of religious organizations will not be long in coming. Men stand already too far away from spiritual striving to enable the religious institutions to have much meaning for them, and when through earthly measures the latter are to be dissolved, they do not resist it but still support those measures through silent toleration. Only those people will rebel who, even so to be called believing, are still not inwardly enough to recognize that spiritual ascent development does not depend on human institutions. For these are still too attached to formalities, to traditional activities, which are for them the quintessence of religious feeling. They did not yet get deep enough into spiritual knowledge otherwise they would remain untouched by those measures, which certainly can destroy the outer shell but never the inner core. Because it can far more likely come to maturity without the shell, which is already just the work of men and does not favour spiritual ascent development very much. The many organizations have not shown great spiritual successes because mankind became more and more de-spiritualized, despite these human institutions, thus the elimination of these will not mean a drop in the spiritual development. On the other hand it will become clear how far the individual will now make it his business to strive spiritually, because only this has real value before God. Faith in a loving, wise and almighty creator is to be made accessible to men and his expression of will, the divine commandments, is to be announced to them. And for this certainly no organizations are necessary, as they have come into being on the human side. These teachings can be announced to men always and everywhere when a man is knowledgeable and wants to pass on his knowledge in love to fellow man. But when men are completely unapproachable to such teachings then they fade away at the ears, as the other way round the willing man is approachable and will always make an effort to follow the teachings. But mankind of the present time turns away from all spiritual, not last of all because they these worldly-churchy organisations do not appeal to them, because they only see the work of man in them and the core remains closed to them, which would justify these institutions. Too much great store is set by formalities, and consequently one seeks to destroy that what man does not like. Everything will be the victim of earthly measures, also the efforts to spread truth will be stopped, which is a sign for de-spirited mankind, which no longer wants to accept anything what lies outside of earthly matters. And still God allows all these human encroachments, because on the other side they are suitable to cause men to think. And this will be necessary with those who were still too lukewarm and outwardly and are now forced to an opinion. The hangers-on are still without opinion, but then they have to stand up for themselves; standing outside of their organization they must clarify their relationship to God; they have to seek the connection with God for themselves, and their way of life must correspond to the will of God, which is known to every man sufficiently and which they only need to fulfil to also feel connected to God and to belong to his church, which is not to be understood worldly, but spiritually. Big changes men will have to expect because the time of decision approaches more and more, and everything still has to be fulfilled before that, what God has announced in word and script no stone will remain on the other; nothing will remain to exist what is because men let it come into being and the work of man is transient. Amen. B.D. NR. 2742.
