Hi Folks, I've seen a number of threads here about Urantia-based movies. Seems like a good idea as long as it didn't become too sensationalized or corporate (though I doubt that would even be a possibility for a very long time if ever) What about movies, short films, youtube films etc. based on the ...

What do you folks make of this passage from paper 49. 49:3.6 You would be more than interested in the planetary conduct of this type of mortal because such a race of beings inhabits a sphere in close proximity to Urantia. "more than interested"....? Seriously? Why would we be utterly fasci...

Thanks Gerdean, Do you think that the writers of the Papers look approvingly upon such methods of birth control that allow people to engage in sexual acts without consequences? Which leads me to ask what Universe attitudes toward pre-marital sex in general are? The Revelators can be inscrutable in t...

I don't understand what the part in bold means. Namely the pairing of the title "pleasure lures" with what follows. could somebody help me out, please? Sex association is natural, but marriage is social and has always been regulated by the mores. The mores (religious, moral, and ethical), ...

oops...didn't notice that what i just asked has already been stated extremely well.

"if we are to evolve we lessen the need to symbolize our relationship because it is actualizing. you can not give symbols to identify every ones personal actualization."

I feel like this has been addressed a number of times, but to put it succinctly, and to address it directly to Robert... isn't the formulation of a creed always the intellectual interpretation of an individual's religious experience (or the collective assent of a group of individuals) That is, to wh...

i pray God grant you strength and wisdom in the fight to gain custody of your kid, Dave. Fight hard and don't give up. It sounds like he really needs you.

Thanks for the insight in answering my question Gerdean and Uncle Bill. And I think what Dave said about how we ought to reach out to each other in a real and personal way instead just trying to make our points resonates too. I see myself possessed by a detached, sometimes even sick, curiosity as op...

sorry for being unclear. i see a contradiction. now, i trust there is no real contradiction, so i was hoping someone could illuminate the nature of Jesus' interest in other human beings, because he seemed to be profoundly interested and involved with human beings, but apparently seemed never to be c...

He never seemed to be curious about people, and he never manifested a desire to direct, manage, or follow them up. He inspired profound self-confidence and robust courage in all who enjoyed his association. When he smiled on a man, that mortal experienced increased capacity for solving his manifold...

scroll down to lecture 15 from the top twenty most popular broadcasts. He manages to interpret quite a bit of humor out of the UB.

I am slightly wary of an organization or institution that could set rules for how spiritual truth is to be disseminated, but nonetheless i think it's a neat idea- a way of coordinating teachers and seekers. But if such an organization were to be officially formed, i think it would be essential to ma...
