103:9.6 (1141.4) When theology masters religion, religion dies; it becomes a doctrine instead of a life. The mission of theology is merely to facilitate the self-consciousness of personal spiritual experience. Theology constitutes the religious effort to define, clarify, expound, and justify the exp...

Greetings Steve!! Glad to hear all is well. I am pretty sure the Middle Earth tales and Greek legends of fairies and trolls and leprechauns and sprites and sirens and goblins, etc. were rebel midwayers and angels - all of which were removed 2000 years ago! :D Regarding Van... of whom I am a fan... H...

Jim appears to be under the delusion that if the whole world only heard something, they would believe that something and would choose to act upon it and, somehow miraculously be transformed instantly into saints. Holy Moly. I am reminded of the bread and fishes episode whereby the Master taught the ...

Please read Paper 170!!!! :!: :idea: 170:5.14 (1865.4) When Jesus’ immediate followers recognized their partial failure to realize his ideal of the establishment of the kingdom in the hearts of men by the spirit’s domination and guidance of the individual believer, they set about to save his teachin...

Jim's false declarations and proclamations and predictions above should encourage everyone to actually read Paper 170 to gain perspective and the context of the text posted. For the quote is actually about the source of Christian distortions and misunderstanding of the teachings of the Master regard...

170:5.8 “But doubt not, this same kingdom of heaven which the Master taught exists within the heart of the believer, will yet be proclaimed to this Christian church, even as to all other religions, races, and nations on earth – even to every individual.” This statement of expectation has always bee...

Thank you Fan O Van, I found the sparring a true learning experience. I had been recently pondering if the upcoming eclipse on April 9th, 7 years after the last eclipse on August 21 might serve as some kind of tribulation period, so I search the Forum to see if anyone else had the same thought. I f...

Student asks above: " Do YOU "think" that people are trying to interfere with origin, purpose, destiny on a cosmic scale by interfering with soul growth choices of individuals...? " No. I don't think people intentionally attempt to interfere with soul growth. I think there are ma...

Student says above: " And that's what is so spectacular about Part IV of the Urantia Book - Jesus already knows everything in Papers 1 through 119." Hmmmm.... eventually, yes. But not prior to the time in the Perean Hills I don't think. Jesus was quite human, the Son of Man, first. His mi...

Student says above: "He proved humanity could still grow a soul as originally designed." Do you think souls were rare on Urantia? If so, why so I wonder? Certainly are souls more common on every world after the Spirit of Truth is bestowed I think. But souls are born upon the expression of ...

Rich - I have always wondered about the role of the various Finaliter Corps in the outer universe levels. Do you have text references for us? Thanks. :smile: 12:2.5 (131.2) We know very little of the significance of these tremendous phenomena of outer space. A greater creation of the future is in pr...

I look forward to text supporting your claims and propositions here Student!! Michael’s bestowal was no rescue mission nor any test either... according to the Papers. And the very human boy and young man of Jesus did not know of anything in Papers 1-119... as the text I posted clearly states. Jesus ...

So many theories make your head explode when you read it, haha. Indeed!!! :lol: Universe reality has so many elements and is so huge with so many beings and so many places! The UB says there are, or will be, 7 trillion planets of mortals! Sufficient time in the text will reveal a wonderfully replet...
