Yep, the Revelators are very frank, they don't hold back! I love the part where they say (and I am paraphrasing here because I can't remember the exact quote), 'humans are not known for their stellar intellect' - or something along those lines. When I read that for the first time I laughed out loud ...

Steve, Welcome! And thank you for your post. I agree the part 4 papers about Jesus' life are amazingly detailed and, for me, they filled in the lightly pencil-sketched version of Jesus that we get from the Bible and show us the true man that he was. I love the fact that it shares Jesus' inner life, ...

Well I tried to explain it. As I have said my theory does not have to do with the bestowal protocol (even that is like a message in the sand!) But it had to do with "Judge not, lest you provide not unto others, that ammunition which may be used for judging you." So you think these profess...

I don't know why Jesus "left no writing" unto mankind, but I wonder about the wisdom of this intention. It is not the instructions of Michael's bestowal mandate, but rather the theory that true or actual religious progress is borne of the unconscious and therefore requires no images or do...

Anyone who has it in mind to become a politician, a preacher, or a teacher should keep this lesson close to heart. Can you elaborate? Sounds like you're saying that modern-day politicians, preachers and teachers should not put anything in writing ....? We can't make laws without writing them down a...

Our town has a community garden space where any citizen can apply and agree to maintain a plot of land for raising vegetables and other useful plants. It's a great program. Has nothing to do with the Urantia Book, but I'm just rollin' with the flow here.

Indeed! When it comes to medications for mental disorders, oftentimes the cure is worse than the disease! All it takes is hearing any of those ubiquitous medication commercials on tv with their long list of side effects, many of which include 'thoughts of suicide', and more.

I'm no expert on mental illness, but I wonder if we see it as "increasing" in society simply because we now have formal means of acknowledging, and naming, the conditions that have always been with us. Also, the population is increasing, so on that basis, we see 'more' of the illnesses, bu...

I agree that, as good stewards of Urantia, we humans need to establish seed banks and other things to conserve the biodiversity of our flora and fauna. As far as I know, there are a good number of these initiatives already underway. The US Department of Agriculture has seed banks; as do various univ...

The UB tells us that it is not the words we use while praying that is important, it is our intent. Sincere prayer that is selfless and seeking to bring one closer to God, is always effective, regardless of what words are used. That said, if I were someone who prayed in tongues, I probably wouldn't s...

My goal is to open eyes of all humans on this earth and more particularly those who have had access to the most complete revelation to date - the Urantia Papers. Thanks, but we are reading the studying the Urantia Book here so our eyes are plenty open. If you have something to contribute to the stu...

"Truthseeker", I don't think anyone here believes the Urantia Book to be "the only truth revealed". In fact, the Urantia Book itself describes the types of revelation, other than the book itself. 101:4.3 (1109.4) Truth is always a revelation: autorevelation when it emerges as a r...

I mean, there's not much to study. UB tells us all we need to know about morontia nutrition. P535:2, 47:4.6 Though you have morontia bodies, you continue, through all seven of these worlds, to eat, drink, and rest. You partake of the morontia order of food, a kingdom of living energy unknown on the ...

7. Don't assume gender based on user name [- although this one is a bit nit picky. I think we can all forgive innocent errors like that, since clearly, no harm or insult is intended.]
