Somehow I can't help but think Larry Watkins is writing code to connect the broadcasts to Facebook or some other social platform just around the corner. I thoroughly enjoyed his personality and thoughtfulness.

Will there be a slumber period for the Urantia Book? When will the world be ready to accept we have a revelation in our presence? Revelation as an epochal phenomenon [the Urantia Book] is periodic; as a personal human experience it is continuous. I think the book is in a slumber period because for ...

So then pg 1349 complements (1344.4) 122:1.1 with its description of Joseph's appearance. Ditto for Mary. I don't see conflict?

I Must Speak: Here is the Urantian lineage for Joseph and Mary. What's yours? 1. Joseph and Mary (1344.4) 122:1.1 Joseph, the human father of Jesus (Joshua ben Joseph), was a Hebrew of the Hebrews, albeit he carried many non-Jewish racial strains which had been added to his ancestral tree from time ...

Secular is not against religion or God except on dysfunctional planets like Urantia. O:)

I think we agree in sum. But the sources I'm basing my posit are American Indian not white. It is not unusual for a prophet to have no honor among his own. Over time we can gain better understanding of history and personalities and if so then Tenskawata may be properly recognized for his service.

Determine to listen to nothing that is bad; do not take up the tomahawk …. Do not meddle with anything that does not belong to you, but mind your own business and cultivate the ground … Tenskawata 1808 at Ft. Vincennes. Records of his words during and after the War of 1812 reflect a more militant t...

Interesting discussion. A repercussion of a growing sect of secularism that's just short of a war on God is the disengagement from public service by our most able youth leaders. Being free will beings that dilemma kind of limits the choices for the Most Highs to work with as far as a talent pool for...

The Eastern version of the message of Jesus, notwithstanding that it remained more true to his teachings, continued to follow the uncompromising attitude of Abner. It never progressed as did the Hellenized version and was eventually lost in the Islamic movement. 195:1.11 The Koran refers to Jesus a...

That's the first time hearing that clip for me. Thanks for posting it Yoder. I've often pondered the same question. Maybe its more accurate to say that Abner's church in Philadelphia fed the birth of Islam. And that may have post-dated Abner himself. Too unyielding and intolerant added to the backgr...

Been following this post and then watched the documentary film on TUB historicity over in the media forum. $1,000 worth of $5 Urantia books were purchased and distributed as gifts. Doubts most of them were ever read. The mission's not the book. God is the Holy ONE. Good movie. TUB is revelatory and ...

YSMAEL. if this was Facebook I'd have clicked the like button on your post. While TUB indeed is critical of many religious practices it is both complimentary and complementary of most. In our struggle to control especially as it relates to our religious experience any opening of the mind is a step u...

I blame it on Thomas Didymus. That would be my answer to those who would ask why the Urantia book as it relates to traditional Christianity. I think the 8th Apostle was the Abraham for modern day Urantia readers. He was a bit suspicious of ideas presented to him. Came to begin his spiritual journey ...
