There is no life any more in the churches, which are to testify to God; there is no spirit in them, and the spirit can for that reason not be in men, because no love is anymore in them, because love alone decreases the distance from God and without love the chasm is almost unbridgeable. Read more:

Distance from God and wrong attitude towards him.

3. June 1955. B.D. NR. 6274.

The distance between men and God gets greater and greater, and the time goes more and more towards the end. Only very few decrease this distance, and these are those men, who belong to the church of Christ, who stand in living faith, which has been called into life through love work. They are the few men, who do not get lost to the world, but live consciously, i.e. seek to fulfil the will of God. These come closer to him, and they do not need to remember the coming end with horror, for they also know, that and why the end must come and that it means for them just the beginning to a new life - in the opposite kingdom or in paradise of the new earth. And the distance from God must be decreased before, when the end is not to become the ruin of the soul. For distance from God means inevitably hardening of the spiritual substance, therefore transformation to hardest material. Distance from God means powerlessness, therefore inability to activity - a state, which hard matter obviously makes a show of. For the divine love power cannot flow through the spiritual being rebellious to it, and for that reason it is completely without power, and it remains in its powerless state eternal times, until it begins to give up the resistance. As man you feel full of power, and for that reason you do not think it possible, that this lot expects you - and for that reason you do not think it possible, because through your distance from God you are completely ignorant, which aim you are to reach on earth and that you behave completely against your purpose - that it can therefore give for you no other lot than a new banishment in matter, exactly because you place yourselves completely away from God - because you do not acknowledge him, so long you do not live according to his will - even so you confess God with the mouth. And this attitude towards God will have an extremely painful effect for you. How rarely does a man remember his creator and father from eternity. He is constantly filled by worldly thoughts; all doing and thinking is turned towards earthly things; the day is started and ended with earthly worries and with earthly activity. For him, who gave them life, remains no time, and so they think of him, then without every feeling of responsibility towards him. They eliminate him and content themselves in few cases with a public hour of "service", because this has become for them a tradition. There is no life any more in the churches, which are to testify to God; there is no spirit in them, and the spirit can for that reason not be in men, because no love is anymore in them, because love alone decreases the distance from God and without love the chasm is almost unbridgeable. And faith in God will always only be there alive, where the hearts are filled with love. And so you will also yourselves be able to judge at the degree of love of men on earth, that the distance from God is always getting greater and for that reason an end is also inevitable - because men themselves draw it near through their attitude towards God. The gifts of favour being at the disposal of man - intellect, free will and abilities they do not use to come closer to God, but to always strive more away from him, and so they will forfeit these gifts of favour. They will again be unfree and powerless throughout endless times - they will sink down into a depth, from which they had already worked themselves laboriously upwards. But they have again striven towards the depth in free will and have therefore voluntarily removed themselves from God, and this will determines their lot, as soon as the end of this earth has come.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6274.
