"A general desire is arising for light, for spiritual life, for love, for genuine spiritual teaching that has warmth. And so a move towards the spirit is coming about in spite of all opposition." (Lord’ Sermons 24)
"Now, as before, the adherents are falling away from these leaders and seek the light, seek the Word - in expression of their search for God - something their own leaders are unable to give them."
"The desire for freedom of thought is arising, for spiritual freedom." (Lord’ Sermons 24)
"Men are meant to have everything and arrange their life on earth with as many comforts as possible. They may protect their hands from hard labor so as to gain all the more time for the refinement of their hearts and souls. But if with people's increasing skill also their selfishness, greed and lust for power will keep growing and as a result their spiritual darkness, the worst consequences may be expected." (GGJ V,108, 6.)
"The worlds industries will be pursued with diligence so as to deaden the spirit more quickly and possibly also destroy completely the anyway scanty seed for the attainment of eternal life. And thus men's hearts, God's sole dwelling place on earth, are becoming stunted." (G. fr. H. 11, p. 367)
"These are the industrial people and their needs that can never be satisfied. They may be compared to the scrub and thorns under which the seed of the Word of God is choked." (Sp. S. 11, 125, 5)
"The dwellers in the big cities are for ever craving for pleasures. They all want to live in comfort, to have entertainment, be distinguished and, if possible, exercise a little bit of power. All these refinements, however, are nothing else but idolatry, for they are sacrifices of the human spirit to dead materiality." (Sp. S. II, 81,10&13).
"Man's arrogance, pride, selfishness and lust for power make extremely great demands and can still never be satisfied. And so men have no longer the time to occupy themselves with the things they should and for which God put them in the world. The souls of millions are even no longer aware that they are carriers of God's spirit." (GGJ III. 10, 3,4 & 13).
"What would it profit man if he possessed all the treasures on earth enabling him to enjoy all imaginable pleasures, but thereby harmed his soul?" (GGJ VIII, 183, 9)
