Spiritual compulsion. Dogmas. Truth.

2. December 1952. B.D. NR. 5546.

The spiritual freedom must remain protected; man is not allowed to be forced to move his thoughts in this or that direction; it must be left to him to join a school of thought, only then my will is fulfilled, for it is about the free decision of the will, which every man must decide by himself, without having been influenced somehow by force. For that reason I will never ever approve of a compulsion of faith, which is expressed through dogmas, which makes men unfree in their thinking and takes every possibility from them to check and chose. As a result man is driven into certain thinking and now comes to completely wrong conclusions, when starting from wrong assumptions. He can hardly reach truth, which only that man wins, who seriously desires them. In earth life truth is made accessible to man, because he is able to think and his will alone decides, whether he thinks right. He can move in right thinking, but must always be active himself, i.e., he must express his opinion to everything himself, what is made accessible to him from the outside, and that requires own intellectual activity, and, what is still more important, desire for truth, i.e. the will to only stand in right knowledge. This will is absolutely respected by me; it will always be complied with, because I, as myself truth, also want to make myself accessible to my creatures. But I can never supply truth to a man, who does not desire it, who just always accepts, what is brought to him from the outside. Every man must himself check, for just as well something erroneous can be presented to him as truth, and man himself is responsible, for what he decides. It is an erroneous objection to say that the majority of men may not be able to check. The intellect alone is not competent, but certainly the will to stand in right thinking, and his intellect will then also adjust itself affirmative or in the negative, because I myself then intervene, when man desires truth. Highly developed intellectual thinking can on the other hand easily make a mistake, where only the intellect and not the heart and the will are turned towards pure truth. And for that reason it is not right to accept knowledge without checking, to acknowledge teachings without examination and without examination to decide for a school of thought what already follows that that not only one school of thought exists, but from it branching off confirm it again and again that an examination must be carried out, in which school of thought truth is to be found. For every representative of his school of thought has decided intellectually for it, but no guarantee, whether it is truth, when he himself does not seriously concern himself with it, and indeed with the call of my support through my spirit. Who choses this way, he can be sure that pure truth is supplied to him, and he will also be able to support it inwardly convinced. But every individual soul is responsible for its decision, and as its will is, so is also the result. But as long men are pushed into a certain direction of thought, as long as individuals feel one has the mission to present fellowmen with knowledge, which they themselves want to see acknowledged as truth, but which they themselves would reject with serious examination so long it looks bad among men, for only truth helps to maturity of the souls, only through truth they can reach me and only through truth get free from sin and its results, for truth is from me and leads again back to me. But what is not from me, what is to be recognized as error with real examination, that is from my opponent, and he will truly also not help to happiness; he will not lead you to me; he seeks to push you away, to darken your spirit and to enslave you to him himself. Truth alone makes happy, and truth you can only have, when you ask me myself for it, when you are serious about it, to gain truth from me. But this always presupposes your own involvement, and no-one can take the responsibility for you; no-one can relieve you of the decision, which you must make yourselves for the sake of the maturity of your soul.
Amen B.D. NR. 5546.
