An eternal damnation would therefore also be contrary to the love and mercy of God, or else it would be limited, as a result of which the perfection of God would suffer loss. Read more:

Eternal damnation.

30. March 1949. B.D. NR. 4602.

God’s compassion knows no limits; God’s love is infinite; his patience immeasurable, and for that reason his creatures cannot get lost for ever, otherwise he would not be perfect. It is therefore also wrong to speak of eternal damnation, when an idea of time is to be understood by it, which is to describe something never ending. Because such eternal damnation then however means something completely lost for God – therefore an entity finally ceded to his opponent, which originally proceeded from God and has been extracted from him by his opponent. But then this opponent would be greater than God; he would so to speak be the victor and superior to God by might and power, what however never is and can be, because no being comes up to his perfection, to his power and might and wisdom. What has emerged out of him, remains in his possession for ever, only at times separated from him, i.e. standing in greatest distance, because it itself wants it so. But also this distance is no permanent state, because the being, to be happy, must be touched by the power radiation of God, and – if it does not have the will itself for it, is seized by the love and mercy of God, which wants to give the state of happiness to it. An eternal damnation would therefore also be contrary to the love and mercy of God, or else it would be limited, as a result of which the perfection of God would suffer loss. A highly perfect being has no human weaknesses; but an eternal wrath would be a lower human quality, as also every state of punishment of eternal duration could be called no divine principle, because the divine is marked through love. But love rescues and helps; it forgives and makes happy and will never cast something aside for ever. On the other hand the opponent of God lacks the divine principle, love, and it will always be his aim, to pull the entity for ever down to him. And it is him, who confuses for men the idea of eternity, who seeks to make out God as unmerciful and hard, to suffocate the love towards him – it is him who himself knows no mercy and who therefore seeks to make the souls unhappy without hesitation, who would like to take from them all possibility of help, to ruin them for ever. And he finds willing followers of his teaching of eternal damnation – who all do not recognize God in his infinite love, otherwise they could not believe this teaching. But truth will always be imparted to men and error dazzlingly lit, so that God will be recognized and loved as most perfect being, so that men join him and detest his opponent. Amen. B.D. NR. 4602.
