Q: Is the Mormon Church or anyone affiliated to
this church or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have
anything to do with the writings of The Jesus Books in any way?
A: Thanks for writing! The answer to your question
is: to the best of my knowledge, no. I have been a student of The
Urantia Book for over 30 years, and have never heard of any connection
of the Mormon Church with the content of the book in any of its four
Some of the human personalities who are associated with the actual
delivery of The Urantia Book had their roots in the 7th Day Adventist
Church, but not Mormonism. Here is a letter that we answered about that some
time ago which may be of interest.
In the end, if you are interested in The Urantia Book, it should be
judged solely on its content. It is a revelation of truth to our world,
and enables the reader/student to harmonize with many evolutionary
religions and the thought behind them, instructing us that all
religions are good that help bring man to God. But the teachings of The
Urantia Book are not a reflection of any particular religion - in fact
the book goes to great lengths to expose the drawbacks of institutional
religion - promoting instead an individual, personal spiritual experience with God rather than any
form of ecclesiasticism, hierarchies, priests, or other intermediaries.
