 But this is also the basis of the sad faith of your pagan-Christian side, according to which the love of God lasts only as long as man lives in this world. Once he has died in his body and merely exists there in soul and spirit, the immutable, terribly strict, punitive angry righteousness of God takes immediate effect, in which there is no talk of everlasting love and mercy.
 If man, through his way of life, deserves heaven, he will not go to heaven because of the Divine love, but only according to the Divine justice, of course, through his own good and pleasing mercy. But if man has not lived thus, eternal damnation is present immediately, from which salvation is never to be expected. In other words, man say that there is some stupid Father who has set up a law in His household against His children, which means:
 I give complete freedom to all my children from birth until their seventh year. During this time you should enjoy all my love without distinction. After the seventh year, however, I withdraw my love from all the children and from then on I either want to judge you or make you happy. Those who, as minor children, have kept my heavy laws, from the seventh year onwards shall enjoy their highest pleasure. But those who, in the course of the seven years, have not completely improved one atom according to my great law, from now on are to be forever cursed and rejected from my, the father's, house. - Say, what would you say to such a cruel donkey of a father? Would not that be more than the most shameful tyranny of all tyrants?
 But if you were to find such a man indescribably foolish, bad, and evil, how horribly nonsensical must those men be who can ascribe even far worse things to God, who is the Supreme Love and Wisdom Himself!
 What did the Lord do on the cross as the sole Divine Wisdom, since, by manner of speech, He was as if separated from the eternal Love? He, as Wisdom, and as such the foundation of all righteousness, turned Himself to the Father or the eternal Love, not calling for just vengeance, but He implores Love to forgive all these abusers, including the high priests and Pharisees their deeds, for they did not know what they were doing!
 So this is what Divine justice does for itself. Should the infinite Divine Love then begin to condemn where the Divine justice implores the still infinitely more merciful Love for mercy?
 If one does not accept that the Lord was really serious in His request, and says that He has only done so as an example, does one not then make of the Lord a hypocrite, by only seeming make Him ask for forgiveness on the cross, but secretly man see in Him the irrepressible revenge, according to which He has long condemned all these evildoers to the most intense hellish fire?
 O world! O people! O most terrible nonsense that could ever be conceived in all infinity and eternity! Is it possible to think of something more shameful than to make the Lord on the cross a liar, a false preacher, a traitor, and thus a universal con artist, for the false, though temporally lucrative, justification of hell? From whose mouth as alone from that of the arch-satan can such doctrine and words come?
 I think it is enough here, too, to bring you to the realization of what abominations may come from a very wrong interpretation and exegesis of a Divine law. That it is all the same with you in the world, you can already grasp with your own hands. (The Spiritual Sun vol. 2, chap. 95)
I, as God and Supreme Love, created the world, created the individual suns and earths. But this love must not be judged according to your ideas of love. This love is a totally different one, which you cannot possibly understand. Nevertheless, I shun no means of giving you a foreknowledge of it, since only from the cognition of this love, all that exists, as well as the events occurring in your human life, can be properly evaluated.
In this respect, My love is universal since it must only pursue the great purposes of a creation to which all others have to submit. Love, as I understand it, forgets neither the worm nor the senseless stone and even less the larger and more finely organized beings. But this love has other laws, other intentions, other purposes.
Were My love not as it is, I would have to be a vengeful God, as so many people among you would like to make Me, a severe judge, implacable when dealing out punishment, all attributes which you have learnt in your law books, but are not found in My law book.
It is precisely out of love that I transform all the evil that human beings do to one another into something good. Out of love I do not judge, do not fling any anathema or thunderbolt between quarreling people. They create their own evil, and My concern is only to let the comforting word from a better world flow into the heart of the oppressed.
Happy those who take heed, but this unfortunately is rarely the case; that is why the complaints and recriminations made against Me. However, for all that the material, as well as the spiritual world remains the same. They do not change their laws, but the human being offending against them only metes out his own punishment.
That which on the surface is undeserved suffering is often, as in illnesses, a necessary medicine where, generally speaking, the most bitter medicines are the most effective. Not that I send them, for I could help. But I do not do it because My views and My purpose concerning the human souls differ from those existing in the imagination of the oppressed human child.
No human being dies because I will it, no disaster occurs because I will it, no one is born poor and no one in rich circumstances according to My idea. All this I merely allow. Man is free and can thus do as he likes. Through an orderly life he can live longer, through a disorderly life, he can shorten it. Both fortune and misfortune, coming over people through their own wrong decisions, are a school for mankind where they are educated for Me, so that I can thereby spiritually influence them, that means that finally they listen to My voice. This is something which also ought to have happened sooner, but did not happen.
Whether born rich or poor, everyone in his station in life can become “My child”, gradually maturing for another, more enduring, world of the spirit. His poverty can help him gain rich spiritual treasures, whereas the one born rich can lose his material riches without being compensated by spiritual ones.
Everywhere I find means whereby to attain My ends. I merely use the circumstances, without creating them. This I leave to man, who loves to proudly call himself the “lord of the earth” and fancies to rule and subjugate everything, while sailing like a weather-vane through all the spiritual currents flowing through the universe, unawares soon in this, soon in that direction, who is always seeking his temporal material happiness, while disregarding the fact that it can rarely ever be reconciled with the other, which is the more enduring spiritual bliss.
Therefore, My children, do not accuse Me! I am He, who writes all the sins into the sand, who neither curses nor hates or is vengeful, but who has always been, and still is, ready to pour balm on gaping wounds. I have never been an unjust God, no more than a strict Father towards My children!
As you are now, I did not create you, but you have made yourselves what you are. And if I now come and take over your guidance personally, it is because things are going too far; because I cannot stand by watching as mankind, totally misunderstanding and disregarding themselves and their whole future existence, are without faith, love and fear before Me. I must now apply all the means available to lead back the lost to the right road.
The spiritual element is being pushed too far into the background, is too much forgotten and denied. That is why all these abuses, disasters in every direction. And when many a sufferer cries out to Me, a sign that he at least still believes in Me, it is up to Me to show him with few words that his suffering does not come from Me, but that, if he wants solace for this tribulation, he can find it only with Me.
That is why this word, for many a thing might occur which would cause the first-mentioned accusations to be heard also from you. In order to prevent this and so that you, before you open your mouth to complain and raise your voice to Me, you may consider who is to be accused, I, the ever-loving Father, or he, the straying human being, who only strives for the gratification of his passions! (Secrets of life chap. 22)
