Only such a faith is assessed by me as faith, which is alive, for words and affirmations alone are not regarded as faith by me, but only as an approval, to not be inconsistent, because you cannot give reasons for an opposition. Read more:

Faith without love is dead.

13. October 1951. B.D. NR. 5234.

To fulfil the love command is indispensable for the obtaining of a deep faith. To be able to believe no proofs need to be existing, but something, for which no proof can be produced, must become conviction in you, so that you completely support it, that you can support what you now believe. Only such a faith is assessed by me as faith, which is alive, for words and affirmations alone are not regarded as faith by me, but only as an approval, to not be inconsistent, because you cannot give reasons for an opposition. Then you therefore believe blindly; you accept without examination, without you supporting it yourselves, what is imparted to you from outside. But such a faith will never radiate power; with such a faith you will never be able to accomplish unusual things for only a living faith can prove the power of faith. But a living faith is a faith, which emerges out of love, because love is that power, which expresses itself then in faith. Faith without love is dead; it is something lifeless formally, which has no effect. The intellect can very well work and come to a conclusion, which man then calls "faith"; but such a faith will be more an assumption, which neither makes him happy nor elevates him as long as love is not yet ignited in him. For only love gives life to such a faith. But a loving man does not need to put his intellect extraordinarily into activity, and he still will also be able to present intellectually his cognition, because his is enlightened by the spirit in him, and for that reason he can believe convincingly, because he has the proof in him. What is therefore to be believed is not to be proved, otherwise one could not speak of "faith", and nevertheless there is for him, who lives in love, no doubt, because the spirit in him gives the enlightenments, which justify the deep faith, but which cannot be transferred to fellowmen as evidential, because each one man must reach faith himself and can also reach, so he does not disregard love but love it the joining together with me. Therefore I myself must also be recognized by those, who stand in love, and for that reason also faith in me can no longer be doubtful for where I am present through love, I prove myself to man, and a living faith now fills him, which can never ever be powerless. The start of all is I love and wisdom, light and power come from me, and one without the other is not to be thought. Who therefore stands in intimate association with me through love, he must of necessity also stand in living faith and consequently in full cognition. But if love is lacking, then also the other does not exist. Then faith is dead, and cognition is lacking, for love is me myself; without love there are no power and no light without love you men still walk in darkness, and without love you are weak beings, for love alone makes you strong. Amen. B.D. NR. 5234.
