What is directed against the divine will is evil, and man also feels that as bad, for he acts mostly secretly, as soon as he is in the circle of men, who make the divine will their business. Read more:

Man is responsible for the will.

2. February 1952. B.D. NR. 5308.

Whether good or evil comes to blossom in man, is his own will, which can be forced from no side, even so man reports having to act under a certain compulsion. At any time his will can oppose the compulsion; even so he is bodily too weak to resist. But he must always take responsibility for his will, for it is and remains free, and the direction of the will of a man forms him to a good or evil being; the direction of the will determines his way of life, his attitude towards God and his lot in future in eternity, for what man as such does, that he does consciously as directed for or against the divine order, and this conscious will God judges according to justice.

But for that reason he also sees to it that information is given to man during his earth life about his will, to which the human will is to subjugate itself, if he wants to live in divine order. What is directed against the divine will is evil, and man also feels that as bad, for he acts mostly secretly, as soon as he is in the circle of men, who make the divine will their business. And so he openly acts before them, then the will is consciously directed against God, then he is undeniably recognizable as a representative of him, who is against God. And the effects of his acting will always be harming fellowmen; he obviously acts against love and inflicts suffering on men; he drives them into trouble and misery and so abuses his free will to bad acts, for which he must in future take responsibility. Since he as man has the same feelings himself as his fellowmen, so he also knows, that everything, what harms fellowman, is bad, and he can never make out his acts to be as right and conscientious; he can never exonerate himself from debt, although he wants to acknowledge no eternal judge above him. And so he believes to possess the right of the strong to the weak, he himself should also bend before a stronger and approve of his bad acts, what however is never the case, but just drives him to increased loveless acting. His will is directed wrongly, out of his own drive, despite recognizing and knowing about the laws of the eternal order, which are always put before his eyes through the behaviour of good men, who let him recognize his acting as through a mirror. A bad man is always given the opportunity for reflection; he is always reproached for his God opposing way of life, so that he recognizes himself and seeks to change. But his free will must always be active, which can be good and does not need to be bad. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5308.
