I think Jim George provides an excellent metaphor by explaining how he must tailor actionable informations to individuals within his organisation. Thank you. It explains the subjectivization of the Urantia Papers very well. But there is enough information within the Urantia Papers for the human indi...

I understand what you are saying Riktare about "if you have faith it is real", but in fact Jesus said to Judas Iscariot "we are all of one flesh." So that if you could imagine that Jesus had gained authority as the Master Son (atop Mount Tabor), you can imagine also a metaphysica...

We have to accept the first fact on faith, or assumption? Urantia Book 42:11.1 (the universe) it is a creation of mind and a mechanism of law. https://labofevolution.wordpress.com/2011/05/31/cayces-motto-mind-is-the-builder/ Aside from my earlier warning about the danger of materialism, I now critic...

Ok, before you suggest what the form of instrumentation might be, can you tell us what the scope of objective facts may be, how it exists as "mota". What are the parameters by which the morontial human individual establishes and/or conveys objective facts?

Good clarification from you MidiChlorian thanks, and a strong pronouncement from Jim George. I think you (Midi) may be too reliant on technological instrumentation to procure facts that may be to your liking. Akin with "mota", morontia reality, and the reality of the individual human persp...

Dear MidiChlorian I am not sure what you mean exactly by objective. But if 'objective' suggests that the Urantia Papers are untainted and untrammeled by human emotion and skepticism, it cannot be said to be entirely objective. The The Reversion Directors (the Urantia Book; 48:4.3 "prophetic joy...

Thanks fanoVan for the technical clarification that Mighty Messenger are mortal ascendent creatures rather than strictly Material Sons and Daughters.

I have a question for you Jim George. You mention the closeness you feel towards two particular orders of beings who write the Urantia Papers Mighty Messenger and Melchizedeks. I can understand that the Melchizedeks are very proximal and many who have even had experiences knowing and cooperating wit...

"Us" could refer to the collaborative efforts of the Life-Carrier Comission, with the most-highs of edentia and Lucifer Lanonandek supervisory oversight from Satania. "our Image" could refer to the original pattern Adam & Eve. It is said that Moses wrote the book of Genesis a...

Before you carry on too far in this topic, I just want to say that the Urantia Papers came during a time that would prepare humanity for the great growing pains we are now experiencing as one people. But its teachings are obscure, but helping to ensure mankind's survival. It is Michael Creator Son's...

You are right because "suddenly" events that may spark a conflict are as the precipitation that follows condensation. "Suddenly" events are transitional moments and certainly alter the potentiality factors of history (indellibly), but scholars will always analyse the condensing f...

Yes, you are right in the sense that the Alpheus Twins had accepted the promise of Nathaniel, even before accepting the teachings of Jesus. What do you make of it?

https://img0.etsystatic.com/172/1/10572925/il_340x270.1096061902_q7ez.jpg I think you are correct about the war prospect. With the modern war, there is less of a test of "survival of the fittest", but the chemistry of weaponry/ballistics implies that people may die indiscriminately. This ...

No. The simple-mindedness of the Alpheus Twins Apostles was that they accepted Jesus' word without the need to probe. They carried forth instructions, and received happiness for their part and began their journey to heaven. The fact that they did not wrestle with the psychodynamic or philosophical i...

You are rushing past the point. Political loyalty is secondary to the issue of indivudual loyalty and alignment with the will of God. A leader cannot simply follow current events. Look at Jesus' life and count for your own estimation the few rare opportunities he had to sway public opinion, or chang...
