" Said I: "That part of you belonging to the devil has long since been charged to his account. Yet, I tell you that there are now some in the temple who for a long time have been surpassing the devil, dealing with mankind in a way unsurpassed by any devil.
 I also tell you that much less than you think in your foolish belief depends on the temptations through the devils. The true devil is man himself with his worldly desires. From these issue self-love - this is one evil -, the passion for a life of luxury - a second devil -, ambition, pride, lust for power, anger, revenge, envy, avarice, arrogance, harlotry and contempt for his fellowman- , all these are devils begotten on man's own ground and soil. Therefore, you shall not be so scared of the devil nor shall accuse him. However, do accuse yourselves in your conscience and do proper repentance and firmly resolve to become completely different men, and then carry it out.
 Love God truly above all and the poor neighbour as yourselves, and your many and great sins will be forgiven you. For as long as man does not completely give up sin, he cannot be forgiven it, for sin is man's own doing because it proceeds from his flesh and from the desire of his soul.
 Although man does them in free self-determination, the good works done in compliance with the will and the word of God are really always a grace from above, a merit of God's spirit within the human heart, and man shares in it by the very grace of God. - Now you know how things are. You are free and can do what you wish." (GGJ VI, 10)
