You can certainly receive knowledge from men - but you will only then be able to examine und judge it for its truth, when the spirit in you is active, when it itself can make pure truth accessible to you. Read more:

Conditions to the reception of truth.

14. October 1955. B.D. NR. 6377.

You are introduced to truth mentally, but always only then, when you fulfil the conditions, to be able to be instructed on a spiritual way. You can certainly receive knowledge from men - but you will only then be able to examine und judge it for its truth, when the spirit in you is active, when it itself can make pure truth accessible to you. You must therefore get so ready through the fulfilling of conditions, that you are able to hear the voice of the spirit in you, that you are able to order your thoughts right and to pass a right sentence. This would certainly be possible for every man, and for that reason every man could stand in truth, but most of them lack the will, to subject themselves to the conditions, for it is requested: the convinced acknowledging of God - therefore a living faith. And out of this it emerges, that also love in man must be kindled, because only it produces a living faith. Further man must long for truth. For he can always only be given according to his desire, because all compulsion of will is eliminated on the part of God, but the imparting of truth would always determine faith, therefore the freedom of the will would be limited in this way. Moreover also only a man demanding truth fulfils the further demands - to ask the giver of truth about it and to then also listen to oneself. For only the man hungry for truth occupies himself in thoughts with those questions, which can now be answered for him through the spirit. They are indeed completely natural processes, which would actually not need to be mentioned, because every thinking succes is preceded by a seeking and questioning. But all conditions must be fulfilled, if the success is to be right, i.e. according to truth. Thinking and seeking alone still guarantees no secure truth, when "faith in God" and "love" are lacking - because earth is a dark area, because the fight between light and darkness constantly rages in this area and because darkness exists in that respect, that the thinking of men is confused, that the light of truth does not come through, so long love is not kindled in the hearts of men. That man, who is without love, can neither receive truth nor recognize truth. Man, as ignorant being, must turn to the "light of eternity", that it sends a ray to him. He must therefore also believe in a God as original source of light as start of this knowledge, as "truth in itself". And man must now ask this God for transmission of truth. Then God will also express himself to him through his spirit, which now "guides him into all truth", as he has promised it. You men can all ask him for it, and you all would be given by him; all your thinking would be directed right, and a bright light would radiate over earth. But who of you men believes this and establishes the connection with God through love and faith, that he can receive truth directly from him? Who of you men fulfils the conditions, which truly demand nothing impossible from you? Only few desire truth and listen into themselves, what the spirit out of God announces to them - and for that reason only few stand in the light and can now carry the light further, that also fellowmen can kindle a little light at it, which shines into the darkness of night. For that reason error and the lie will always rule men; for that reason truth will only rarely be found among men. For that reason the war between light and darkness will be waged persistently, but a light will also shine into darkness constantly, which in the end will also win, which will completely displace darkness, when the end has come - when a new day dawns, which will radiate in bright shine, which reveals truth.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6377.
