Church commands.

16. February 1950. B.D. NR. 4840.

There are no particular rules for you for my part, how you are to adjust yourselves to the church commands enacted by men. Everything, what you do out of free will, is assessed by me; everything, what you perform under compulsion, may it be out of fear of punishment or also out of habit, does not count before me. What men command you, is also to be paid by men, but never is a reward to be promised to men for my part, which I myself have not promised. But I cannot approve of something, what completely contradicts my will, because I have given to men freedom of will, which however humanly enacted commands violate, because a command is a compulsion, which excludes the use of free will. I myself have given only one command to men, the love command, which is basic law and must be kept, if my eternal order is not to be violated. But the love command is nevertheless a command, which leaves freedom to the will of man. No compulsion exists, which compels him to work in love; he is also not punished for my part, he only punishes himself, because he disregards the only means, which means redemption for him out of a bound state he himself is to blame for. I gave to men the love command, which can be fulfilled out of free will or also not. Men enacted additional commands, which I cannot approve of, because they are not carried by love to fellowmen, but merely measures to the strengthening of power, because the belonging to an organization is made dependent on the fulfilment of these commands, which exercises the right for itself, to be the true church of Christ. As a result it put men under compulsion, who now fulfil those commands in the belief to sin and exactly direct their whole attention to these and neglect my love command. Love can only develop in freedom. Love and compulsion contradict each other, and for this reason I can also recognize no love to me in the fulfilment of the church commands, as long as they are fulfilled traditionally, so to speak as confession to the authorities which have enacted those commands. In addition those commands are also not suited to let love to me flare up, because they describe me as a being marked with human weaknesses, which demands obedience, reverence and acknowledgement, where it just wants to be loved. Before my eyes nothing is sin than that, what contravenes love to me and to the neighbour. As also never acquiring merits for themselves, which meet church commands, because they are commands, which they are to fulfil. Free will is to decide for me out of love, and for that reason men need no commands at all except mine, which I myself gave them in the recognition of the blessing, which springs from the fulfilment for every man. Amen. B.D. NR. 4840.
