Sounds completely irrational. Urantia Book students, and all others too, should be opposed to international cooperation and globalization because you saw a movie about greed and corruption in the pharmaceutical industry related to the opioid crisis?? It's about a small, family owned pharmaceutical ...

During his mortal career on Urantia, Jesus didn't get involved in politics or matters of state. He was often asked by the Zealots to join their cause and he refused. The cleansing of the temple involved the profaning of a sacred space; a place where people go to worship and share ideas and teaching...

So....all those who support universal suffrage and international cooperation and globalization and social evolutionary progress are greedy? And power mongers? Jesus had great respect and admiration for the sincere and honest, so are there no sincere or honest supporters of internationalism and worl...

Mark/mrlucky posts: "World govt. is an important milestone and needs to have careful considerations of the motives of those advocating such things." The Urantia Papers advocate "such things". So do I. And so do millions, perhaps billions of people. Are you questioning the motiva...

I find this one to be of great interest. that there may be prevented: 70:12.17 (798.16) 11. Union of church and state. What's happening in our world right now is an alarming commingling of church and state to the point that our politicians have a litmus test of so-called "Christianity" in...

That is correct. But I think we must first clean up the corruption. The covid pandemic awakened a lot of people to the corruption of the public health agencies and more is coming to light every day. We have a "World Health Organization" and a "World Economic Forum" already forme...

And down the Qmob political conspiracy rabbit hole we go... ...yet again! Holy Moly. :( :-& Q is a fantasy. This has nothing to do with Q. Jesus is the truth. Jesus cleansed the temple for all to benefit. Learn the Masters ways from the Master. Do the things Jesus APPROVES of which are many and...

Yeah, cleaning up corruption must be done continually. It makes me think of that old Lucille Ball sketch, where she worked in a chocolate factory assembly line. It's almost impossible to keep up with all the corruption. But we know from the UB that the universe is not patches of light on a dark bac...

Yes indeed and well said. So, can I take it then that you are not opposed to a global government? That seems to be what you are saying with this most recent post. That is correct. But I think we must first clean up the corruption. The covid pandemic awakened a lot of people to the corruption of the...

I haven't seen anyone here say they "desire" a world government; in any case, our desires are irrelevant. Father's Will always prevails in matters of planetary importance on Urantia. We're just along for the ride. As to moral standards, of *course* we have them. As to whether we can "...

Mark, you are anxious about and protesting something that is generations away. There is no chance of a world government for a century (or 5 centuries more probably). No one is proposing or sponsoring or campaigning for a world government right now. Nationalism will take a long time to overcome. But...

I am not important enough in the global scheme of things to be in a position to vet those who, legitimately or illegitimately succeed at becoming world rulers. I am not self-centered enough to believe that MY morals and MY values should be the exclusive criteria for such a ruler's suitability. Whet...

It's almost as if you believe our planet has only ONE chance to establish a global government and if we do it "wrong" (according to you), it's all over. No more chances! Of course, that's not correct Mr. Lucky. Every system of government has evolved over centuries and yet, none of them ar...

Expecting perfection in an imperfect world will inevitably lead to disappointment and potentially disillusionment, frustration, anger, and rebellion. You mention rebellion... Good time to review reasons for the downfall of previous failed Urantia endeavors: 54:4:4 (616.3) All these precious endowme...
