Nicely said Rick!! I am not sure we can let go of long held beliefs...or not without substituting newer/replacement beliefs for prior beliefs. That is, the mind craves knowledge and understanding sufficiently to invent speculations to explain what is not truly understood until we encounter that inf...

Galaxy is not the unit of land or volume that is used to delinneate the Administration of the Seven Master Spirits. But what about the total mass of the universe? The mass of the universe was expunged during an event, similar in principle to the "Big Bang" .... Stephen, right away, it is ...

Relationships are relationships. The same difficulties and joys occur in human relations between man and man, woman and man, parent and child, neighbors, boss and employee etc. How do we create and maintain trust in any of our relationships? Number one, of course, is to be trustworthy. Love, faith a...

This reminds me of the Dutch word rekening, which means a bill for amount due (like in a restaurant). Reckoning/ rekening meaning to calculate the cost, the amount due, to settle ones account balance.

.... And this from paper 140:3.19 "I warn you against false prophets who will come to you in sheep's clothing, while on the inside they are as ravening wolves. Isn’t Jesus trying to help someone make judgement? When we can sense another persons hidden Wolfe nature or their spiritual fragrance,...

Found where the topic of "final judgement" was previously discussed here . For example, lwatkins wrote: "Well I think that there really is not gonna be any “final judgment”. At least not in the classical sense of God judging mankind as good or bad and passing a sentence on us, as a ra...

As we know from the UB, the universes and our eternal progression is like school. Just as we get 'graded' at the end of each year of our school education, and we have 12 grades and then university and maybe graduate and post-graduate ambitions, we have the 7 circles of progress and potential Fusion ...

Do you think we will be asked to give an accounting of our endowments and stewardships of this world on one single Judgment Day? I think for those who participate in a dispensational resurrection/ 'role call of justice', there will be a judgement period in which individuals will have their own oppo...

Coop, Good to see you posting again - it's been a while (over 8 months!). With respect, something doesn't seem right about your post, though. I can find no information about this book at all, and the name of the author "Scribe Xelah" seems like maybe this is a channeled work …? I hope not;...

I thought this comment will fit the thread topic so here it is: If evangelical Christians or any Bible based religious individuals try to convert/recruit you, should you counter their offer with telling them about the Urantia Book? Especially if the group they belong to is a destructive group (Mean...

We learn in paper 38 that angels do not have physical bodies; but in paper 39, there is somewhat of a description of angels. “The erroneous idea that angels possess wings is not wholly due to olden notions that they must have wings to fly through the air. Human beings have sometimes been permitted t...

Bradly used the phrase above, "a tapestry of truth" and that's exactly how I see the UB. Have you ever been in a large museum and seen an artwork or tapestry that takes up and entire wall? If you stand too close to it, you can see the threads and the different colors, but you don't get a s...

MaryJo, Your last point is especially relevant and useful. It reminds me of Jesus' way of teaching; he would always teach in the positive. So, intead of saying "do not" do something [wrong/ erroneous], he would say "do" [something good]. So, rather than saying "thou shalt no...
