Truth is not accepted without faith.

20. May 1952. B.D. NR. 5396.

It is a futile start wanting to initiate men to truth, who are completely without faith. For in them is neither the desire for truth nor love willingness and because of that, no ability to recognize truth as such. For that reason it must first be tried to cause them to think about their origin for only such thinking can move man to the question: Why and to which purpose is my existence as man, and by whom have I been called into life?

Only then it is possible that faith in a creator from eternity awakens, and only then truth can be imparted to man with the prospect to be recognized. But "faith" is not the unopposed acceptance of a teaching of a God and creator, but the inner approval of a being, which has created everything, keeps and rules it. Therefore man must come to the inner conviction through thinking that a being exists, to which creation owes its existence. Only this conviction won through thinking can be regarded as faith, because indeed no proof can be brought and still man supports this inner cognition, because it appeals to him and is so also acceptable to him, i.e. also his intellect can profess it. A faith like this is also guarantee for the gaining of truth, because man now also gets mentally into contact with the entity, which his heart acknowledges, and now the divinity itself intervenes and informs the man more and more of its entity, because it itself reveals itself to him, as soon as he has acknowledged it. And now the degree of love is decisive, in which way God can reveal himself to man. A seeking man stands already further from the earthly world, and he is no longer tied up by matter; his spirit climbs upwards into areas, which lie far from the material world but as soon as he breaks away from matter, the love spark is also lighted in him; he no longer thinks of himself, but he feels put into a communion of equal beings, as he is himself, who all have to fulfil a purpose on earth, but who are likewise weak and ignorant like he himself. And what he now seeks, that he does seek for him alone, but he would like to utilize it also for his fellowmen, because he feels it that ignorance is a great shortcoming, which makes them unhappy. Therefore love in a man will always get ignited, so faith in God is awakened, and the supply of truth is now also guaranteed, only that it can be imparted to men in different ways, however always so that it is acceptable to him and he feels so impressed by truth that he demands more and also supports it to fellowmen. God can only reveal himself, when he is acknowledged, but then he gives with full hands; he hands out to everyone, who desires truth and love will again increase in the heart of those, who receive truth, because they now learn to recognize and love God, who reveals himself in his nature, who lights a bright light in all, who strive for truth. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5396.
