Error must be separated from truth; otherwise men are not able to imagine God, whose nature is so perfect, that also everything which testifies of him must be perfect. Read more:

Traditional faith. Form faith. False doctrine.

7. August 1949. B.D. NR. 4707.

It is an extreme heavy work to move men out of traditional faith, out of form faith, into living faith, because they have still not realized the word "faith;" they have taken over the word traditionally, without being aware of the actual deep meaning and are rather attached to outer customs and traditions, than to the core, which forms the teaching of Christ. They have indeed received with the ears everything, what is in connection with Jesus Christ as the divine redeemer, and this knowledge they call the word "faith." They only understand under this that they do not rebel against this knowledge or reject it as improbable. But they have neither penetrated into details of the Christian teaching nor are they at all aware of the meaning of the work of redemption, therefore they refrain from a mental opinion of that what is taught to them, but which is necessary, to be able to believe livingly, i.e., to win inner conviction for every faith teaching. But living faith alone can only lead to eternal life, because all form faith is unsuitable for the change of the soul. And form faith is everything, as long as man is not filled with the deep desire for pure truth. Because only this desire causes him to think about the spiritual material imparted to him; which then follows the inner conviction or a conscious rejection of that for which he cannot find the conviction, therefore living faith. And this elimination of the wrong from the right must take place. Error must be separated from truth; otherwise men are not able to imagine God, whose nature is so perfect, that also everything which testifies of him must be perfect. But deformed teachings will never let the nature of God be recognized, but always portray a distorted image of God. But as long as men, who want to instruct their fellowmen - (8.8.1949) themselves do not know the difference from form faith and living faith, as long as these men have not themselves got hold of knowledge of truth, exactly through opinion with divine support, therefore have reached living faith, they will also not train those to be instructed to the right faith. And this is the explanation for it that innumerable men certainly call themselves believing and are still far away from it Ė that for that reason error is spread and truth is badly received, that men accept much for truth, what they very well could recognize with serious will as error. But they keep to the tradition; without thinking and without hesitation they take over through generations always the same deformed teachings, which were originally given to men by Jesus Christ in purest form and could only experience deterioration and disfiguration as a result, because own thinking was shut out and so no attention was paid to deviation. Moreover also the unconditional acceptance of faith teachings was made the duty of men, so that they feel free from all responsibility and therefore faith becomes always more rigid and a dead faith can earn no spiritual progress. Menís attention is to be drawn to their dead state, and for that reason living faith must always be preached; they must be advised that they are not allowed to call themselves believing, as long as they just acknowledge traditionally taken on spiritual material, however have not taken possession of it, therefore can support it with most inner conviction, not just with the mouth, and that also a spiritual discussion with it is necessary. Then the veil before their eyes will fall; then the heart and the intellect will at times refuse to accept something; and only then truth will emerge, which will now make man happy and to an eager supporter. And then man will be able to believe actively and have freed himself from all outer form; only then his soul will be able to mature and he will be able to be a member of that church, which Jesus Christ has founded on earth. Amen. B.D. NR. 4707.
