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 ...

fanofVan, please don't start with this again. Why can't people simply have and share their experiences without challenge? I don't feel called to anything by Jim's post, nor do I feel threatened. I don't perceive a threat to The Urantia Book or its teachings, either. It's hard to understand your reac...

I think that, for the most part, the entire spectrum of political beliefs of the individual are motivated by a single common element shared by radicals and moderates of both the left and right or liberal and conservative. That common element is idealism. Thanks for that post, fanofVan. I agree with...

Did you issue the same warning to Van? He keeps making accusations and referencing Q in his responses. If you review the recent thread you will see I'm not the one who brought it up. Be that is it may, the judgemental and generally unfriendly tone of this forum is quite unfortunate. Not really a gr...

Actually you you are quite wrong about me, my "shtick" and about Q. I don't oppose internationalism but I do question the wisdom of outsourcing domestic manufacturing that creates poverty and drug abuse among American citizens while using slave labor overseas to make $100.00 Nike's. The &...

Hello Dan, and welcome...

That is quite a nice post, and clearly demonstrates the compatibility of Urantia Book teachings with earthly religions that worship the One God. I am glad to know more about the Sufi religion through these comparisons.

Thanks...

Hold up there!!!

I said up above that the vaccine was not an appropriate topic for this forum. I actually said that that topic was off the table for me, but I now insist that is is off the table, period. Stop right now.

Personal medical decisions are nobody's business.

That is a very nice post, mrlucky. I think we stepped out on the wrong foot with all of those catchphrases in your original (and subsequent) posts that have been come to be associated with Qanon and it's manifold conspiracy theories. Those things ARE triggering to many people, and probably why you m...
