Transforming perspective is not necessary. The views expressed in the urantia book fit many human perspectives, which do not require transformation. The facts are meaningful even without human involvement, but I see your argument do not need to contest your appreciation for the urantia book.
Thank you Stephen for your "perspective"...hahahaha. I certainly agree that the reading of the UB and/or the living of its teachings does not result in any uniformity of perspective or singularity of view. I should have been more specific. I believe that circle progress or progress in the Spirit is transformative. As we shift the seat of our identity from the material to the spiritual, then I think our view or perspective or point of view becomes shifted...we will begin to see the same things in a new way and with a transforming perspective. I meant to describe more of a process than a result, as my opinion is that this changing perspective accompanies us in our morontial adventures as well as our mortal gains.
Self mastery and personal spiritualization changes the tadpole into the frog over time. This is also illustrated, I think, by the lessons on the fruits of the spirit. We change and so does our view point related to reality and also to error. Rather than "perspective", perhaps a more accurate description would be that the maturity and wisdom gained by experience and insight and personal revelation changes that which is viewed rather than the perspective of the viewer? I would also add further that the UB is not critical for such personal transformation....it is helpful - or has been so to me - in providing a more complete and factual presentation of reality, true, but it is the living in faith and truth that is transformative and spiritizing.
In any case, it's always appreciated when another student seeks clarity of thought....and expression. Thanks!
