Because through compulsion the Lord wants to draw no children to himself, but completely out of free will the children are to decide whether they want to choose or reject the father. Read more:

Teaching under compulsion.

22. November 1937. B.D. NR. 194.

Keep yourself a believing heart, then God will be close to you all the time. And if the Lord also imposes upon you what appears unbearable to you, with his help and favour you can overcome everything. And now listen: We all close a circle around you and start our work, because the Lord has decided to initiate you into the dangers of Christianity, as it is taught today on earth. When at all times his word was so received that it is meant to impose compulsion upon the neighbour, then that was a great error and mistake of the teachers. Because through compulsion the Lord wants to draw no children to himself, but completely out of free will the children are to decide whether they want to choose or reject the father. We therefore consider all pressure, which the church or the servants of God want to exert upon mankind as not wanted by God and not ordered by him in his teachings. Therefore such a church falls to the ground, because the fundamental condition is indeed missing – full freedom of the will. Where regulations are made to observe one and another thing with the thread of punishments, there no spiritual freedom can exist, and there the purpose also would not be fulfilled, even so the earth children comply with these compulsory regulations. And in this the explanation lies again for the breakdown of such churches, although their intension is also to guide men to God. In the recognition of these most holy fundamental conditions, to shape the entire walk of man towards God on free will, so many other regulations fall into the kingdom of the misled. All compulsion is not wanted by God and is therefore only an obstacle to man on the way to eternity. You are certainly allowed to teach his words, but not linked to conditions, which put the human being in a kind of predicament and are able to give him a different picture of God’s goodness and love. Everywhere pay attention so that you, who are servants of God, are to raise your little sheep in love towards the father, and teach them that they may wrestle and ask for God’s favour, then the way to the father will become easier for them, and nothing will frighten them – while your teachings put them into a state of dependence – into a state where they in the best case certainly make an effort to fulfil their duties, but the inner spiritual devotion towards the heart of the father is missing. Love and desire for the father is to come out of the heart, but not to be forced under pressure. The human soul then climbs a much higher level and advances much quicker under the favour of God, which it begs out of its own drive. Therefore seek, where you can, to make men understand that they are not to cling to a teaching, but are to hear the teaching of God in their most inner heart, which refers them to their adoption of God; and to fan the flames of the desire as children of God to reach the father, is, what is to be the basis of genuine Christianity – and then the way will be shown to you by the father in love and divine compassion. Amen. B.D. NR. 194.
