For every man is responsible for himself, and it is a presumption, when a man wants to determine the thinking and believing of thousands upon thousands through a command, as which always a dogmatic teaching is to be seen. Read more:

Spiritual compulsion. Dogma.

2. November 1950. B.D. NR. 4993.

The greatest danger for a man is spiritual compulsion, which prevents him from recognizing and from self-decision of the direction of his will. Every man is an individual being, which is to fashion itself to perfection; every man is therefore also responsible for his way of life, which is necessary to gain the degree of perfection, and every man must therefore decide freely; he must bear witness of his will before me. This testimony I demand and do not declare myself to agree that a man determines his fellowman to think, to want and to act in this or that direction. The freedom of will must be inviolable, but it is then encroached on, when a direction of will is prescribed by law and man is now through promises or threats determined to move in that direction. I will never ever acknowledge such compulsion of the will; even so I do not openly take action against it, to exactly again exert no compulsion of the will. Man is a thinking individual being, to which I have given the ability to be able to want and think freely, and indeed only for the purpose of a decision in the last stage of development of the spiritual on earth, and who then will receive his wages in eternity, according to the decision of his will. It is certainly good and wanted by me that a man informs fellowman about the effect of a will utilised rightly or wrongly; it is wanted by me, when he receives enlightenment of all forms about the relationship in which he stands to his creator, but with that also enough is done that he is taught rightly that the divine love teaching is supplied to him and he is also urged to practising of unselfish neighbourly love. But all is to happen without compulsion. Man is to be instructed, but not forced to accept a teaching imparted to him, because he is to use his will in his own estimation and own drive. I gave man free will, but you take it from him and therefore use your will wrongly, although you believe to work for me and by order of me. But I have never given my apostles the task to spread my teaching as faith compulsion, because faith under compulsion is never faith, which would be beneficial for his soul and its ascent development. I always just demand from men faith in me as highly perfect being; I just require faith in my omnipotence, wisdom and love and in the power of love. For so you believe this, you will experience at yourselves the power of love and recognize everything else automatically, what is necessary to believe, because then my spirit has an effect in you, which instructs you truthfully. But a forced faith wins you no perfection; a forced faith will also rarely become alive, and a forced faith I cannot assess as free decision of the will, because the will has still not become active in you, but you profess a school of thought upbringing wise without having examined it properly for its worth or unworthiness. What I demand from you to believe, is, that you only be happy through love. But also this faith you must acquire for yourselves; you certainly can receive the teaching about it, but must then first practise love to become certain in you of it that love is a spiritual power, and only this inner certainty is a convinced faith, which is life awakening, because it was won in free will.

All compulsion is a sign of imperfection, because all compulsion violates freedom, but was very initially characteristic to the spiritual being and which it must also win again for that reason to be happy. How can compulsory measures be seen as according to my will, which take spiritual freedom from men when man therefore must as it were believe in accordance with his duty, what demands as far as I am concerned complete free thought and acceptance? I as the highest law-maker have given to men, except for the love command, which also includes the ten commandments through Moses, but which is also only then fulfilled, when love is voluntarily practised, no further law, because such would then witness against myself or would let the free will of man become doubtful. But men claim for themselves to enact laws without having the authority for it. They consequently encroach on the free will of men. Every law is compulsion and every compulsion against my will. As soon as man can no longer move in freedom of his thinking, as soon as he must believe a teaching, his test of will on earth his invalid, because he is to decide himself, but not making a decision in compulsion. And compulsion is every dogmatic teaching, no matter whether it is according to truth or not. Every dogma is a rape of free will which is unfree at the moment of spiritual decision, because it is prescribed to him and can only be evaded through committing a sin. As far as I am concerned every man has the right of free decision; I only demand thinking about that, what to believe is demanded of him. If he cannot accept it convincingly, despite thinking about it, so I do not count it as sin for him; but he certainly sins, when he confesses a teaching with the mouth, without having asked his heart. For every man is responsible for himself, and it is a presumption, when a man wants to determine the thinking and believing of thousands upon thousands through a command, as which always a dogmatic teaching is to be seen. Everything, what encroaches on the freedom of will of man, can never find my approval, because I myself do not even determine men to the acceptance of truth, so their own will does not request it. I certainly instruct men constantly and supply pure truth to them, but everyone is free to accept or reject it, and so also you are to now instruct your fellowmen in all love, but leave to them all freedom of a decision, because faith in compulsion is not considered by me. Amen. B.D. NR. 4993.
