To those of you who are constantly trying to find fault in the Urantia Book: Why?

This parable came at a time of great tribulation in the earth life of the Master. It is small wonder that he used this example of those who deliberately flout the laws of heaven. Those who operate thru life with their "eyes wide shut" shall reap what they have sown. I, personally, do not ...

The Third Sower Parable "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while he slept, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and hastened away. And so when the young blades sprang up and later were about to bring forth fruit, there appeared also the weeds. T...

I believe it clearly states in the Papers that Jesus ended the Lucifer rebellion with His bestowal, and whatever purpose Cali-Dali have is definitely being permitted, just as the Lucifer rebellion was allowed to run its course. If I may add this thought regarding these discussions, and if I name na...

Hi! This is why I was wondering about the often cited "mark of the beast" and whether AI (or the digital realm) is a counterfeit of reality or if it is actually reality. I agree that AI is merely a tool, but it has the potential to be considered as personality by some people, who "be...

I stand corrected. I posted once that I believe that all participants in this forum are participating because of the fact that at some point in our lives we came in close enough contact with the Urantia Book to ignite some spark of faith, or to make a connection of some kind, and that is THE unifyin...

That is an excellent question. Paper 5, "God's Relation to the Individual," addresses this issue quite directly: 5:3.4 (65.6) The moment the element of self-interest intrudes upon worship, that instant devotion translates from worship to prayer and more appropriately should be directed to...

Normal evolutionary problems...yes i agree. A wise man told me once "Let the politicians do what they do, our goal is to provide a sweet perfume unto Him" praise, worship and love draw others towards Him. Once they get close enough then it is up to them, regardless of who is in the governm...

I have been following this exchange with great interest and I have learned a lot. For example, if these System Sovereigns have strayed, how much more some of Urantia's mere political leaders and/or business giants! Personally I doubt that more of these higher entities have jumped on to Lucifer's sun...

great and very helpful answer Bradly and thanks again to all who helped answer my questions. I have one more: Theologically speaking (forgive me for using the "T" word) I am just wondering about my learning and growing experience up to now. I have always considered my "contact", ...

Excellent points from everyone, thanks! So just to help clear this up in my mind, establish a milestone, so to speak: So what is the experience of salvation then? There is the emotional side which as we know can not be trusted, but there is also that sublime feeling of knowing something has happened...

The goal is progress and fusion, not mere survival of soul as the highlighted text above says. The requirements for soul survival are in dispute among some students but the spiritual progress needed for eternal fusion seems to be of a more general consensus. 8) I agree, and I believe anyone who &qu...
