I refer to this concept as "Nation OF God", rather than "Nation UNDER God", because in this current Epoch, we have learned in our worship to see our souls as being born out OF God, as faith-children. We do not necessarily see ourselves as God's Servants, as in UNDER His Rule, but we naturally aspire to be BRINGING his rule into fruition on Urantia.

One World-Order, One Urantian Nation. We the People are common citizens, believers and here are our general expectations and guidelines in citizenship:
Foregiveness of others' debts
industrious labours
ambassadorship for peace and relations
belief in one spiritual family of all urantians


The mandate of Universal Citizenship applies to individuals who have made a declaration to serve in the manner most becoming of harmony in his own sphere. The taxes collected are levied on a voluntary basis, never imposed. Each member has the mission to contribute his highest ability to the service of mankind, which is called the brotherhood of humanity. The developmental aspects of culture in the Nation of God is to establish the foundations of Self-Maintenance and Self-Defense of the inherent and inseparable truths, that man is the Child of God, and in carrying his own duty man is called to love his neighbour as he sees that God would love his neighbor.

All other constituencies apply to a person who is of the Nation of God. He is still, for instance, a Nigerian or an Indian. He does not lose his homeland but gains a second homeland in Paradise. Therefore, all obligations that are seen as both Social & Ascendant become a joined-culture that such a citizen must co-represent.

The Professional Calling of the Nation of God is special because we have learned to abide within the Seraphic Planetary Government and World Progress. The Inventions that have been withheld to the generations will be revealed, when the Nation of God has subdued all the other nations, to the extent that other nations are peaceful enough to use Technology in a Wise and Peaceable Manner.

Let us hearken unto the strategies of Harmony that will lead to the greatest Society for Humanity. We are called to bring peace into the neighbouring lands, and to protect the widows and orphans. We must give of our resources and abilities, and to retain the wealth we have created. Let the Nation of God remain a fertile dream within the minds of all families.
