Dear Administration, You wrote: We are notified whenever a new post is made and we read, at least cursorily, nearly every succinct post made... long posts may only be skimmed.

Greetings nod, My dad (the high priest of atheism) is about your age, and he still beats me up too when I tell him anything that isn't in his book. I am not your Dad. Your superior time spent with the words are commendable. But please, do you really need to beat me up because you haven't gotten over...

Greetings nod, Ouch, cut again. Another lasting impression of Friendship. Who needs enemies? Again, you "read into" what I wrote. It was not meant disrespectfully. I suggested that the reason you are so unhappy with some folks here is that you're having a hard time finding someone with a s...

Greetings nod, Is this a platitude, a cliché, a truism, a banality, an old chestnut or a bromide? Unity not uniformity. It seems to me that the Revelation recommends a little of both: The religion of the spirit requires only unity of experience -- uniformity of destiny --making full allowance for di...

Greetings nod, The Urantia Book is one thing to read, study and discuss. What it says, doesn't need to be discussed. Obviously it does. There are many misconceptions concerning what is actually said in the book and what is not. For instance, it does not say that Havona is the nucleus of the ultimato...

Greetings, If someone from the administration is reading every post have they read this one: Yet you have attempted to make this this a place to disseminate hate. Hypocrisy and idolatry must be exposed to the disinfecting effects of sunlight. This site is a place where brothers united in spirit can ...

On further consideration, I think you are on to something there.

Greetings nod, I agree with Brad. The best thing you can do is get off the praise computer and go out and do something to help other people. Go out and ask people what they need and see if you can provide. Even if the internet was available in the first century, I doubt very much that Jesus would si...

Greetings nod, Originally you wrote the following which I was prepared to address: So perhaps this is the greatest challenge of our time. How to give to these zealots, and even ordinary sincere seekers, something to get excited about? Something to "die" for, if so inclined. How to bring th...

Greetings nod, You wrote: How to bring the words of a book to their attention, supplant what they already believe in with the greatest human knowledge available * The Life and Teachings of Jesus * while they're unaware that it's happening, ipso facto? There is a lot here to comment on and I presentl...

Greetings nod, I agree. In Paper 188 the author tells us the true meaning of the cross: The real value of the cross consists in the fact that it was the supreme and final expression of his love, the completed revelation of his mercy.188:5:5 Jesus died for love and he did it with complete forgiveness...

Greetings, Last night I was reading The Christian World, a Global History , by Martin Marty, and was reminded of the power of martyrdom in spreading Christianity. There is something about willingness to give up one's life for a cause that stirs up something deep within us. I often wonder if those ea...

Greetings Brad, I also thought nod had misunderstood you to mean park the barcalounger in Margaritaville. If I hadn't been out with the family, I would have posted in your defense. "Don't worry dude," means don't worry about an Old Testament God aiming lightening bolts at you. Don't worry ...

Greetings slyde, By the way, the petty bickering has ruined this forum...................that's the truth part. As for beauty and goodness I see none. :x Isn't ruining the forum the sole purpose of constantly side tracking conversation into a meaningless circle of self-centered meandering claptrap? ...

I go on vacation away from the computer and the only comment speaking the truth comes from Larry. Tsk tsk. nothing changes. Sad! :(


Are you implying that nothing I said has any value? I'll take that to heart. Thanks for the insight.

Sincerely,
Rexford
