I think the shift towards 'service' will be to repair the damage we've done and to emphasize things like education, healing and nurturing. There will still be jobs and 'business' but it will not be about just buying and consuming more 'stuff' (or just being wage-slaves in the production of more 'thi...

The difference between the 4 Gospels and Paul's letters is that the Gospels are at least claiming to quote Jesus, whereas Paul was just saying "Here's what I think Jesus meant" I do like the ("gnostic") Gospel Of Thomas, which is considered a "sayings" Gospel. but ultim...

I never really 'got' the atonement doctrine (in my Catholic upbringing) so it was easy for me to drop it. In a Urantia forum there's not much point in arguing for it though. You might as well be pushing reincarnation ---the answer will always be "the book says otherwise" I've read these (r...

To this question I think Jesus would say: "By their fruits you shall know them." If you DO the stuff suggested in the alleged revelations (including different ways of thinking/acting) do you get 'positive' changes/results? Here's couple of quotes: 5:2.4: ...The proof of fraternity with the...

Oh thank you, I knew that was in there somewhere. I am hoping to completely re-read Part IV soon, as I think that this part of the book (the life of Jesus) really brings the message to the daily living of the individual ascending mortal. There is plenty of good stuff in Part III as well, but the fir...

Yes, that's one of my favorite parts of the book as well. The 'other forms of prayer section' (144:5) which includes prayers from other inhabited planets. The following is an alternative prayer to the "Lord's Prayer" recited in other parts of our Grand Universe, found in UB p.1622; 144:5: ...

Thank you for the brief outline of Science Of Mind. I believe that the Ubook does 'hint' at this kind of thing, especially in those sections quoted (and around papers 52 - 56) In describing the reality of the "Spheres Of Light And Life" and how they would seem like "heaven" to us...

re: Survival / Salvation Again from Paper 2 (The Nature Of God) 2:3.2 ..... The final result of wholehearted sin is annihilation. In the last analysis, such sin-identified individuals have destroyed themselves by becoming wholly unreal through their embrace of iniquity. The factual disappearance of ...

Yes I like that section that someone else posted (The Acme Of Religious Living) quite a bit. Most of the book resonates with me an seems to come from a high vibration but some parts don't do that for me (much of the history of Urantia section does not seem that useful to me) Other sections that I li...
