The will alone is assessed by God.

The act alone does not decide, but the will.

Nevertheless, the intellect of man must consider every act, and then the man of good will will recognize, whether he acts wrong or right - but also that man, whose will is not good, will refrain from an act, which he recognizes as opposite to his will. Read more:

The act alone does not decide, but the will.

28. August 1954. B.D. NR. 6036.

The act itself does not decide, but the will, on which this act is based. A good will can carry out an act, which otherwise has an effect as bringing blessings - but also on a bad will an act can be based, which is seen by the eyes of fellowmen as good. The will alone is assessed by God. Nevertheless, the intellect of man must consider every act, and then the man of good will will recognize, whether he acts wrong or right - but also that man, whose will is not good, will refrain from an act, which he recognizes as opposite to his will. And so that man's thinking is right, he is to pray, what indeed only that man will do, who has a good will, but he will then also never commit an act, which has a bad effect on fellowmen. You indeed have free will, for that reason you are not prevented, no matter what you plan and carry out, but you must take responsibility for your doing, and that you are to consider, and you will then not act carelessly; you will proceed conscientiously and always take the commands of God as guiding principle and then also not sin. For these commands lay down your earth life walk for you, and so now all your thinking and acting is determined and directed by the love for God and for the neighbour, your earth walk can only have a blessed effect for fellowmen, for love eliminates every error, because real love also illuminates the spirit and guarantees right thinking. You must therefore examine yourselves, whether an act, which you want to carry out, is caused by love, and only then commit it, when this examination turns out in your favour, when therefore love for God and for fellowmen causes you to do it. Then it will be good, and you do not need to be afraid of a responsibility. But without love there is always the danger, that you sin, for without love also the will is not good, and what you now carry out, will also have its effect accordingly. For you can certainly deceive your fellowmen, but never God, who sees into your hearts. But the praise of fellowmen is not to lead you to acts, which cannot stand up to God. Love alone makes an act valuable, and love will also always act right - love will want to help, and every helpful act is pleasing to God and will be blessed by him.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6036.
