Everything, what man does to gain eternal life, presupposes freedom of will; therefore no command is allowed to be given to him, which fulfilment is forced with promises of award or thread of punishment. Read more:

Teachings in compulsion. Love in free will. (Cath.!)

15. March 1950. B.D. NR. 4859.

I want to give you no command; I just want to advise you, what you are to do for your soul. Because also my love teaching is no command, because love must be practised out of free will, if it is to gain success for you. A love work also presupposes love in the heart of man; the work alone can be carried out purely mechanically and is then also assessed accordingly. I never say to you: you must, but always: you should. Compulsion is a law, of which non-compliance results in punishment. But I do not punish you, so you violate the law of love, because it is actually a law, i.e. brought into line with my eternal order, but I as law-giver, who is love in him himself, do not punish you, since it contradicts my love. I can only warn you, to live without love, therefore advise you, to form yourselves to love to be able to enjoy happiness, which you never feel without love. What you obey as command, does however not earn you happiness. Therefore I am also an opponent of all compulsion, since freedom is the right of that being, which has emerged out of me. I indeed also apply compulsion in the stage of the being before becoming man, but this compulsion emerges out of love, which could not win you back otherwise, which otherwise cannot provide freedom for you than through compulsion but unaware for you. But in the stage as man you are aware of every state of compulsion. If the will is curtailed for you, then that violates my eternal order, since I have given you free will, which you can and are to use according to own discretion. And now judge yourselves, who violates my eternal order judge, by you paying attention, where compulsion determines men to their way of life. I cannot approve compulsion as means of spiritual education, because in compulsion no man will strive up. Where therefore compulsion is applied for spiritual development, there you will be able to recognize God-opposing work, and compulsion is everywhere there, where punishment is threatened or award promised, because both are means of bringing pressure to bear, which are to determine man to his lifestyle. And compulsion is everywhere there, where organizations are formed, which seek to tie up their members through measures; therefore make them unfree in their thinking and acting. (17.3.1950) Compulsion is also there, where it is not tolerated that men obtain knowledge elsewhere; that freely out of themselves they therefore try to research and gain truth. Every slavery of human will is not according to my will, because for what man must in future answer, that also presupposes his freedom of will. Wherever men are bound to their way of life, through commands or threads of any kind, there my will is not represented, but the will of him, who is my opponent and therefore your enemy, although my name is always talked about. Because out of making the will unfree emerge countless false doctrines and countless violations against my will. The will of a man is never allowed to be regarded as so infallible directed right that thousands of men follow him blindly and do not use their will themselves or are forced to think and to act against their will. Even my pure teaching, supplied to you from above, is not allowed to be send to men by force, but freely out of themselves they are to decide for or against it, but how much less a teaching, which is no longer so undistorted, as I have myself preached it on earth. Men must always be granted the duty and also the right to check and to judge spiritual material sent to them by fellowmen. And so the pure teaching is preached, this is to happen in love, and the inner conviction will let the teacher find the right words, to win fellowman for it, but any compulsion must not occur. The man, who is God-willing and seeks me, he also recognizes me and can believe convincingly; he will then also practise love out of his own drive, but no longer out of duty, but out of love to me, in whom he believes. Compulsion kills love, and every work of love is then only a mechanical practising, which cannot be judged by me. You are to love because every ascent makes love a condition; but you are not forced; you also cannot be forced to it, because then love would not be love. Consider this well, and then recognize which error the spreading of my love teaching is on the way of denominational regulations. Everything, what man does to gain eternal life, presupposes freedom of will; therefore no command is allowed to be given to him, which fulfilment is forced with promises of award or thread of punishment. He is to just be instructed about my command of love, which alone is meaningful and of which the fulfilment of eternal life depends on. Amen. B.D. NR. 4859.
