Each one will at times digest such thoughts in himself, but often reject them unwillingly and fight against every further mental influencing from the spiritual kingdom. And also for this he must take responsibility, because he himself rejects every means, which could help him to right cognition.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Own responsibility. Attitude to truth.

22. June 1953. B.D. NR. 5704.

Every man is himself responsible for his soul, and for that reason it is not enough that he only joins a community as supporter, which relieves him of his own thought, which lays down everything he does and which he now follows implicitly, without own judgment, whether the demands are justified, whether he himself can win something for his soul, so he does, what it demanded of him. He takes a great responsibility for his soul, for through his earth life way he prepares for it the lot for eternity. He will also never be able to shift this responsibility onto those men, who have instructed or guided him wrongly, because intellect and free will was given to him himself and these are to be used by him. However he himself does not take it seriously with the immortality of his soul; he does not stand in real faith thereon; he is lukewarm to everything, what has reference to his spiritual development. And he must take responsibility for it. Every man is mentally referred to it; no man will be able to claim that he has never occupied himself mentally with life after death. Each one will at times digest such thoughts in himself, but often reject them unwillingly and fight against every further mental influencing from the spiritual kingdom. And also for this he must take responsibility, because he himself rejects every means, which could help him to right cognition. Every man must accept responsibility for himself, and he has the right and the duty to express an opinion himself to all teachings, which are presented to him as spiritual truth. For in exactly the same way he must be able to receive them as error, as he receives them as truth, because there are many schools of thought as can be proved and each one deviates in its teachings form the other. If he now wants to support one of them as truth, so he must himself first have got hold of the conviction that this teaching is truth, and for it a conscientious examination belongs, which he though cannot carry out without calling upon God for his help. Pure truth must mean a lot to him, and he must know that only truth leads him to the destination; that only through truth he can help his soul to a blessed lot in eternity. And for that reason he has the duty to seek for truth, therefore to also examine everything, whether it is according to truth. As supporter no man wins an advantage for his soul; he must gain everything for himself and for that reason let his own will become active; he must always desire the support from above; he must himself establish the relationship with God and always seek to fulfil his will. This serious will will also soon earn him right thinking; he will become aware of his state and his task on earth and now seriously strive to live so that he can in future be responsible before God, his creator and father from eternity.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5704.
