Light can become his from the inside only as result of a way of life in love.

Spiritual knowledge depends on degree of maturity.

For also spiritual knowledge can become pure intellectual knowledge through eager study, when the ascent development of the soul is disregarded, when the degree of maturity of the soul is therefore still a very low one, the intellect however, as highly developed, busies itself with problems, which touch spiritual areas.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Spiritual knowledge depends on degree of maturity.

9. October 1953. B.D. NR. 5784.

Complete ignorance is a sign of spiritual low, for knowledge about divine-spiritual does not depend on intellectual activity of man or on the measure of knowledge supplied to him through fellowmen, but alone on his soul maturity, on the degree of his spiritual development, so that therefore the most simple man, whose soul has already a degree of maturity at his disposal as result of a way of life in love, will make himself a truthful picture about God, about his earth life purpose, about his relationship to God, his father from eternity. He will feeling wise accept those teachings only, which are according to truth, perhaps earthly he is not much held in high regard because of his intellectual knowledge, he will be of simple spirit and nevertheless think righter on spiritual area. And the small cognition is enough, to cause him to a way of life, which is according to the will of God, but which then, after his death, brings in brightest light like lightning in the spiritual kingdom. The complete knowledge on earth is not the proof of a high degree of maturity of the soul, for also spiritual knowledge a man can acquire intellectual wise, only it is then also more intellectual knowledge than spiritual material, when the way of life of the man is accordingly, and knowledge, which is therefore still not to be addressed as spiritual treasure, can also again get lost for the man with the moment of death, provided it was not accepted by the heart, but from the intellect only. For also spiritual knowledge can become pure intellectual knowledge through eager study, when the ascent development of the soul is disregarded, when the degree of maturity of the soul is therefore still a very low one, the intellect however, as highly developed, busies itself with problems, which touch spiritual areas. Then one cannot therefore speak of ignorance - but the "one knowing" lacks one thing - the light. For no matter how much knowledge acquired on this way, still gives him no light, that he could now recognize bright and clear all connections, that he would be made happy on account of his knowledge. Light can become his from the inside only as result of a way of life in love. For the spirit out of God alone radiates light, who only gives real life to intellectual knowledge. And only then it is knowledge, which can be assessed as spiritual treasure, which is immortal and is taken over into the spiritual kingdom. And for that reason even pure truth can only then be grasped, when the spirit out of God gives enlightenment to man, what always presupposes a degree of soul maturity, which can only be achieved through a way of life according to the will of God. The state of light, cognition, is then also accordingly, after the death of man, and a good, but simple man, who has little knowledge at his disposal on earth, can be flowed around by more radiating light at his entry in the opposite kingdom than a man standing in spiritual knowledge, who lacked love on earth and to whom the spirit out of God has not yet found access.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5784.
