Try the Padgett messages; they fully explain who Seth is and what
the Urantia Book is.
Thanks for this note to us here at TruthBook. It is not a question,
I see, but more of a commentary and introduction to this website called
I am not sure whether you expect a reply to your note, but I thought
I would go to see what this site is about in any event. It is quite
interesting; I found a couple references to The Urantia Book,
both positive, and both supposedly from celestial beings.
Back in the early years of the twentieth century, the messages that
were eventually to comprise The Urantia Book were beginning to
be received via the "sleeping subject" in Chicago. And it appears that
in 1914, James Padgett was also beginning to receive messages as well -
supposedly from his wife who was deceased.
It seems to me that in those years preparations were being made by
our unseen friends and celestial benefactors for the right people and
the right circumstances that would make the delivery of the Urantia
Papers possible. It does not surprise me that Mr Padgett may have been
the recipient of some apparent messages during that time, as he appears
to be a sincere seeker.
"Spiritism" was quite popular in those days; and one of Dr Sadler's
aims was to reveal fraud in that area - to expose charlatans and
discredit those who were capitalizing on such phenomena at the expense
of unsuspecting and bereaved victims. I am not saying that Mr Padgett
was a charlatan, but only that his sensitivity may have made him
susceptible to receiving messages of a spiritual nature during those
days. What I find most interesting about his messages is that in the
end, they reveal "God's Divine Love." And this is precisely what
The Urantia Book - and Jesus in The Urantia Book - reveal as
I do hope that you are a reader/student of The Urantia
Book. As a complete work, it is probably the most important source
of spiritual information available on the planet today; its truths will
be informing our world for generations to come. Of primary importance
is this knowledge of the Father's true nature and his eternal and
parental love for all of creation. The sheer weight of information in
the realms of history and science are enough to satisfy even the most
intellectual seeker, while the ever-present atmosphere of spiritual
comfort and instruction will round out and enrich every truth seeker's
experience of God.
Thanks again for this note. It is always interesting to me to see
how much spiritual information was "out there" in the early days of the
delivery of The Urantia Book. It seems that our celestial
friends were quite busy seeking just the right persons with whom to
entrust the fifth epochal revelation of God to mankind.
