I'm beginning to think that it's possible for skepticism to become a quasi-worshipped sort of religious fetish.

I hope I'm wrong.

Here's something I noticed lately about being "consumed in translation". I've often wondered whether or not there have been many or just a few who have been taken up "in chariots of fire". What do you think the use of the word "most" means here? (110:7.2) When a human b...

So, do you think the angels removed their souls, their Adjusters seized their "mind transcripts", and they all took off for the mansonia resurrection hall and put in new forms? And their human bodies were consumed in translation?

I suppose so, yes.

...Many other loyal souls had already been translated at the time of Adam’s arrival, which was attended by a dispensational adjudication of both the sleeping survivors and of the living qualified ascenders.... 76:6.2 (853.3) That's fascinating Rick. Never noticed that before. The following always m...

Partial quotes can be so frustratingly misleading or incomplete. Enno...I have asked you before to please not post snippets of text...sigh...or at least indicate you have done so. Text quotes are complete thoughts compared to partial quotes. Thank you. I apologize Brad. But I gotta tell ya, I almos...

Every moment will be savored for eternity to come I think.

There's no doubt about that. And if what the author says is true, that after we fuse with a part of the eternal past, of which "they are you" then incredibly, there'll be something additional and unexpected to savor too.

We have a beginning...in time. We may have no end in immortality but we do have a beginning. Yes we have a beginning but eternity does not. When we become fused with a part of eternity, in a certain sense, we apparently become as though we never had a beginning. Which is pretty interesting to conte...

I really enjoyed this video about Jesus. I new as a reader and student of The Urantia Book. I appreciate this study material as there is no study group any where near my city. I love the part where the narrator is telling us that Jesus taught his followers about the importance of a relationship wit...

The element has "astonishingly long half-life of 11 hours"

Which in time relative to eternity, is "immediately" enough.

I struggle with it too. A lot more than a little bit but not so much anymore. Getting older has its rewards. But apparently Jesus struggled too. It even made him weep, like those kinds of situations sometimes do. Just before leaving, the apostles missed the Master, and Andrew went out to find him. A...

Yes Enno he did. I can think of several. Why? Relate the question to the topic and text perhaps? I'm sorry. I should have elaborated. Jesus pretty much disappointed a whole lot of people. His mother. His family. His people the Jews. And most of all, his followers. And here's the main point I tried ...

Myrm, I want to express my gratitude for sharing your experience of reading the Urantia Book for the first time. I'm enjoying reading your posts very much and they bring me back to my own experience of reading it for the first time. However, it was several years before I gave it a full reading start...
