You wrote: I have spent some time reading through several very interesting topics, but am left just as perplexed as when I first purchased a copy of the UB. Like a few other b...

Student, I am not sure what you are going for here: The PEOPLE this truthbook website has censored over many years because the conversation veered towards what was an "existential threat" to some power-grabber has been an organized "heinously unethical psychological attack" using...

If Jim would only list these contradictions of his as personal opinions and beliefs that would be one thing. Actually, in my view, the essay by definition encompasses personal opinions and beliefs: An essay is, generally, a piece of writing that gives the author's own argument, but the definition i...

Fanofvan writes: I agree there is nothing sinister about Jim or his intentions. But that does not make him harmless. His claims are dangerous rhetoric which contradicts the UB which he claims to represent. He elevates his own standing and his own authority and he presumes to understand God's will an...

As to the question: "How do we perceive God?" I look forward to that discussion related to the teachings of the Revelation on how we experience the presence of God within. When I found The Urantia Book, I was astonished at the teachings about God and his personal nature. The concept that ...

I have understood that Jesus was a revelation of the Father not only to Urantia, but to all the worlds of Nebadon: "The Scriptures contain much that is true, very much, but in the light of your present teaching, you know that these writings also contain much that is misrepresentative of the Fat...

My life adventure began to be a bit more predictable (and simple) when I realized that before trying to change the world with the brilliance of epochal revelation, a good first step was to be good at being a good animal. Eating healthy, being clean; getting to work each day, on time, day after day;...

I came across this passage this morning. It occurs to me that one way of service is to be really present with everyone I meet in a day. To be a good listener...to sincerely care for each person. It's tempting to think of service as a kind of planned, or orchestrated effort to touch the lives of many...

Rich, I am glad that you want to have discussion on this forum. But your use of Urantia Book quotes is off the mark. I know you love the book and you're good at finding passages but do you think it is really helpful to use quotes like this to answer those who are trying to engage with you? Isn't the...

Rich, this does not even make sense.

One theory I can think of is that reincarnation is actually the TA of previous human. This is a theory that holds interest for me. I have heard it, and thought about it before. As you say, some of the stories are remarkable. But, I do not believe in the theory of reincarnation. After reading The Ur...
