According to the Papers, repentance has nothing to do with "social & spiritual debts". That guilt and remorse and contrition is something else entirely. Very important... just not the same as repentance. Parsing peoples' experiences with repentance is not necessary, in my opinion. If ...

If you and others can only approach God by shame and guilt, that's a personal problem and matter for you to resolve. But it it is not supported by the Papers. Thankfully, what IS supported by the papers is the concept of a loving Father who loves his children in the very ways that they need to be l...

Sometimes I wonder if they just planted this shame thing in us real deep when we were young. Oh yes...from day one. And after 12 years of Catholic school, it is pretty well ingrained. Takes one to know one, right? That is one of the reasons that I was so attracted to the UB and its revelation of Go...

quil: Repentance (recognizing our wrongs, and seeking to make things right) is a natural consequence of the process of placing our faith and trust in God, and in so doing we open ourselves to the experience of forgiveness, allowing us to shed our burdens guilt, shame, remorse and let go of our past....

So then you must believe we are all rebellious and intentionally disobedient and deliberately sinful?? If true, and apparently so, then I understand why you might think repentance to be so universally important. But such a perspective directly contradicts the UB. And is a very judgmental view of al...

Well, you certainly chastise others for their need for it. And you say that it contradicts the teachings of The Urantia Book. it is not required for salvation or the Deity connections or the parent/child relationship. That is true. But some seekers may not fully grasp or fully understand that truth ...

Bradly... Jim says: My conclusion to your argument against my use of the word repent is that our greatest feat in a life of achieving this realization of truth, beauty and goodness is to discover the limits and dimensions of our own personal unwillingness to do the will of God and change that. Wheth...

I did get a reply about this just now. MaryJo, we had to move the server to a new location, and unfortunately had to lose a few days. It was unavoidable. I remember your thread, but can't remember the date you posted it. It might be that it was caught in the transfer on those few days. You can sure ...

Sorry about that, Agon.

Is anyone else experiencing any unusual issues here? There are some major renovations happening in the website right now, and so this thread's disappearance might be connected. I don't know, but will investigate.

Repentance has its place in life, and can be valuable scaffolding in relations with the Father. I have certainly repented - often. And I feel no shame or worry over it. In fact, it has brought great relief at times in my life. It has been a part of my spiritual growth over time, and I think it is a ...
