But it becomes more and more difficult for those men, because the longing for matter becomes more and more violent and the great earthly trouble before remains for them a nightmare, from which they believe being able to escape through increased earthly striving. Read more:

Effect of trouble on faith.

6. October 1955. B.D. NR. 6372.

In times of greatest earthly trouble some men certainly find the way back to their God and creator, as soon as all earthly hope in them is shattered, as soon as they see no other way out any more, than to call God for help. These have not lost their faith in God completely, it has only been suppressed though the world, through influences of fellowmen, and own indifference. For that reason the thoughts again and again emerge, so man is in earthly trouble. Faith can now become a great strength through the often wonderful help, through which God now expresses himself. And then the earthly trouble has not been purposeless, it has helped man to spiritual progress, and his way can now lead further up - he will no longer lose faith, and the soul is rescued for ever. But how many men sink back into their world life and also immediately give up faith, so they see themselves again in carefree circumstances of life, so earthly trouble is over. Even so they have experienced the divine help obviously, they are rather inclined to see such as coincidence, and they anew turn away from God, to now sink into their faithlessness deeper than ever - to serve the world more than ever and consequently him, who is lord of the earthly world. To seek to win these men back through renewed trouble is mostly hopeless, for now the opponent of God helps them in increased measure, because they themselves have devoted themselves to him through their obvious rejection of God. And they will always become more slaves of the world, because they are always more given worldly by him. These men are certainly also then addressed by God in all kinds of ways, they could therefore find back to him, when they would seriously take themselves to task. But it becomes more and more difficult for those men, because the longing for matter becomes more and more violent and the great earthly trouble before remains for them a nightmare, from which they believe being able to escape through increased earthly striving. And they do not consider, that everything is transient, that everything can be taken from them at any time, so it lies in the will of him, who has created everything. Their faith in this God and creator has certainly got lost, but deep in the heart the unexplainable fear always sits after all of renewed strokes of fate. Therefore man also knows, that there is a power, which is stronger than he himself and that he is at the mercy of this power. He can believe in it, but he does not want to burden himself with this faith and therefore rejects something intellectually, but what his most inner feeling must accept. He does not want to believe and is for that reason far more responsible for his conduct. And the opponent of God uses exactly this displeasure, and he rewards it with earthly goods. But every man can find back to God at any time. He will be helped in every way, but it is always up to him, how he decides.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6372.
