You are Peter the rock. Living faith Church of Christ.

27. December 1948. B.D. NR. 4525.

Who wants to count himself to my church, he must stand in living faith, because I do not look at a dead faith, because it does not deserve the name "faith." And consequently you men have already the right characteristic of my church and also the explanation of my words: "You are Peter, the rock, upon you I will build my church." Only on a right faith is my church founded. But what is a right faith? To think something to be true, what cannot be proven so goes your explanation. Nevertheless no blind faith is meant by this, no thoughtless accepting of faith teachings, because it can give birth to no convinced faith. But man must possess the inner conviction without proofs. This is right faith; otherwise it would just be a play of words, if one talks about faith. Only a convinced faith is a living faith, but never a blindly adopted dogma, which is just not rejected. Peter possessed a convinced faith, and for that reason I offered him as rock, which was to bear my church. And again and again I will make this faith a condition for the belonging to my church, because I do not content myself with those, who only confess a teaching with the mouth, but who lack the inner conviction. A living faith is condition, because only then the power of faith appears, where the inner conviction is to be found. That I require more from men, than just the mere confession with the mouth, must be clear to every thinking man, because the most nonsensical teachings could be presented to man and faith in it demanded.

But this I make impossible through my words, in which I give men a standard the rock Peter which is to carry my church. From this it follows that you men must therefore face every faith teaching, that you, to be able to convincingly believe, must mentally express your opinion on it and therefore understandably cannot accept every faith teaching; that an erroneous teaching must be recognized by you, because you cannot win the conviction of the absolute truth of that what is required from you to believe. You will very well be able to differentiate with serious thinking, which teachings correspond to truth and which teachings must be rejected. And so you will also be and remain right followers of my church, if you stand in living faith, and I will bless you. Amen. B.D. NR. 4525.
