But as far as God is concerned, the will is never influenced compulsorily.

A dogma is always disadvantageous for the soul, because man is exempt from an opinion about a religious doctrine, but without deep thinking a convincing faith can also never be won. Read more:

Dogma.

9. May 1948. B.D. NR. 4294.

It is no spiritual oppression when a man of a certain school of thoughts is shown another, when knowledge is offered to him, which contradicts his knowledge, as long as he can decide in free will to accept or reject. But if he is forced to accept through laws, if he is put into a state of punish-ability, therefore is made unfree in his thinking and acting through threatening of punishments, then this is an oppression, which can never have good effects upon the soul. That is why my word is to always be preached, but always so offered that no pressure is exerted on men. And that is why also the supply of pure truth from above is an act of fullest freedom of will, which always leaves the possibility open for a not-enlightened man to be considered a human shoddy effort, if the will to reject is greater in the listener. Every man can recognize the divine origin, if he is serious about pure truth and about the further development of his soul, then the ability is also definitely given to him by me, to recognize truth as such, because it is my will, that the thinking of man moves in truth and I offer him every possibility to recognize what is right. But as far as I am concerned, the will is never influenced compulsorily, why I also reject that on the part of men fellowman is spiritually raped through teachings, which as dogma oblige to acceptance, otherwise man is pronounced sinful. Man must accept responsibility for every offence against my love commands, but I will never call somebody to account if his inner feeling restrains him from the acceptance of a religious doctrine, even if it is in accordance with truth. He then still places himself under no sin, just his desire for truth is not yet so deep that he recognizes truth as such. But accepting a religious doctrine without examination and inner conviction is completely worthless for the development of the soul. A dogma is always disadvantageous for the soul, because man is exempt from an opinion about a religious doctrine, but without deep thinking a convincing faith can also never be won. Men certainly need leaders if they do not strive for the spiritualization of their soul out of their own drive; but wise leaders are just to teach and therefore seek to stimulate heart and intellect, because the connection with me, with the spiritual kingdom, every individual man must establish for himself, and the way for it is to be shown to him by my representatives on earth through impartation of my word; they are to always let me speak; but never add their own, enact commands or impose obligations on men, as wanted by me. I leave freedom to every man, and my care is just uninterruptedly meant for the supply and spreading of truth. Who seeks it, he seeks me, and I will certainly let myself be found by him; but who does not seriously strive for truth, he will also draw no advantage from the acceptance of religious doctrines, which have been presented to him as dogma and which he believes he is therefore not permitted to reject. Every dogmatic teaching is a restriction of the freedom of will, which I gave to man, therefore a spiritual oppression, which is not in accordance with my will and against which my representatives on earth are to fight on behalf of me. And I will bless every bearer of truth; I will give him opportunity to spread truth, although it will find resistance, but who is of serious will, he will recognize it and become thoughtful, and I will help him; I will enlighten his spirit and bless his will. Amen. B.D. NR. 4294.
