Discussion of the Bible, Koran, and other religious books is appropriate on the Open Forum when these are addressed in a generic manner, such as "The Bible describes hell as a place of eternal torment. What does The Urantia Book say about this?"

Posting opinions about the goodness or badness of particular religious teachings is unacceptable.

If you want to post materials that are more in depth, in a less restrictive environment, then we suggest Abner's Corner. Nevertheless, access to Abner's Corner is restricted to only those people who have read all of The Urantia Book and are familiar with its teachings. Demeaning, or destructive, comments about other religions are unacceptable in all forums.

The Urantia Book contains more than 1,000 quotes from the Bible, fewer from other religious books. The full text of the Bible, Koran, Bhagavad Gita, and other religious books is available on Truthbook.com at Truthbook.com/index.cfm?linkID=19

(1) 82:4.3 (917.6) As civilization advanced and private property gained further recognition in the mores, stealing became the great crime. Adultery was recognized as a form of stealing, an infringement of the husband’s property rights; it is not therefore specifically mentioned in the earlier codes and mores. Woman started out as the property of her father, who transferred his title to her husband, and all legalized sex relations grew out of these pre-existent property rights. The Old Testament deals with women as a form of property; the Koran teaches their inferiority. Man had the right to lend his wife to a friend or guest, and this custom still obtains among certain peoples.

(2) 87:5.5 (962.6) The Koran contains a whole chapter devoted to the evil eye and magic spells, and the Jews fully believed in them. The whole phallic cult grew up as a defense against the evil eye. The organs of reproduction were thought to be the only fetish which could render it powerless. The evil eye gave origin to the first superstitions respecting prenatal marking of children, maternal impressions, and the cult was at one time well-nigh universal.
