Squabbling Squabble: verb squabbled; squabbling\ ˈskwä-b(ə-)liŋ \ Definition of squabble: to quarrel noisily and usually over petty matters Apparently in the matters of the FER, squabbling is currently the norm, at least in this forum, to engage in much squabbling, much to the dismay of those who ar...

I too am prayer deficient. I remember the words of the Authors… pray for values, not things. When I look out on the world and see so much awful stuff, then see folks praying for material things, I shrug and go my way. When I pray, its usually at a time of crisis, and for something (like someone clos...

I have to agree. I rarely come bye here anymore because every discussion I am interested in seems to degrade into this childish name calling, all in the name of the Master too, I suppose.

Does the UB have its own culture… I say YES, but with qualifications. With less than 100 years under its belt, the planetary spiritual awakening associated with the Book is still in its infancy. So in many respects, a real “culture” as defined by social norms, is still unborn. But a real CULTURE, as...

Amazing topic! Thanks to all who have taken part. Here is the American Deep South, while nothing is banned, the prudent often hold their tongues in order to live peaceably with their fellows. Espousing extremist Christian positions is in vogue in many of the locals I frequent, and the presentation o...

HI WILLIAM! My thoughts on this are that: YES, there is definitely thought crime as taught in the Book. The Authors are very specific that the indwelling Adjuster suffers thru our thoughts of evil and sin. And flagrant lust is, in my opinion, one of those evils. That being said, step back and realiz...

Hi William! Welcome to out little dysfunctional family. We are glad you are here. Yeah, we've all, (well most of us anyways) tried singing the praises of the Book from the rooftops. Most of us have the scars from trying that route. I have found that living the life which the text teaches us to live ...

My Take: The Spirit is, in the simplest of terms, Love. God is Love and God is a Spirit Being. God’s Spirit is Love. Jesus, a Son of God, the creator of our little corner of the Universes of Universes, is, almost by definition, a branch of the Living Love, which is God. Our little planet is affected...

The thing is, Jesus would have never come to this forlorn sphere had we been more like Havona. He chose this world because we are so F***ed up. So, personally, I'm glad the world is the way it is... it makes life interesting!

Fan o' Van: You NAILED IT, dude. I agree that a lot of real evangelism is actions, not words. Random acts of kindness are the best kind of evangelism around. For me, words often just get in the way.

God, that was deep. I barely understood half of what you were saying, although I did try. Pretty much, I was just thinking how the undercurrent of the religions today was the Life and Teachings of the Master, like it says somewhere in the book... Just like how the Adamic civilization, which was not ...

I think the term "evangelism" has become tainted due to the efforts of some members of certain other "named" religions. And this is fitting as the state of religion in the world today is one of retreat. Retreat from prominence, and from relevance. Retreat back into the safety of ...
