 Forum: General Urantia Book Discussion   Topic: Whet the appetites of your associates for truth!

I found the best way to Whet the appetites of folks is to place the Book right out in the open. Whether it be at work or at home. I always get a "what's that book about?" question, and then the dialog begins. Another more challenging way (and most readers don't recommend it) is to particip...

I gather you subscribe to the belief one should avoid suffering whenever possible or at least not enter into it. Nope, that's not what I said. Adversity in ones life is unavoidable. Adversity is an adverse event and when it happens to you... it happens. You may not realize it but you have contradic...

That's quite a comment. While a willingness to die for one's faith might be noble, and on very rare occasions, dying for ones faith might be a grim necessity, it's hard for me to imagine how one might consider it to be good fortune. Howdy AF, I used the word martyr, and you want me to elaborate on ...

Does that mean detachment from the world, or mastery of our human selves or both? How can you be in love with truth, beauty and goodness in the world and be detached from it at the same time? How do you get mastery over a free-willed spirit? And, is self-mastery a loving service? In a word yes all ...

Accounts offered by the Sadlers and the Springer's and so on. Vann, not to be picky but spelling Dr. Meredith J. Sprunger correctly shows some respect. Then there is the book itself. I am glad to have it and I believe what is says about itself. I am and have always been convinced that a team of the...

Well I'm sorry friend but I have to disagree with you again. The Urantia Foundation is the publisher of the book, not the "technical" authors. Well, my friend I believe you missed my point. When you happen to come across the TUB copyright documentation you won't find the list of assorted ...

I think you may be missing the point here. The sleeping subject was a part of the transmission process, not an author. The authors of the book are listed in the front. That is who, or in the case of collaborative efforts like Part IV, wrote the book. Celestial personalities all, excepting for the M...

The one who would not consider TUB asked about authorship and said his Internet research indicates the book was false because it was 'channeled' which he indicated was unacceptable to his biblical perspective. Authorship is a valid question and deserves a truthful answer. Only the folks actually in...

Is the UB associated with the occult in anyway ? And if not, does it encourage it or not ? Perhaps this question is a bit premature since you haven't finished reading the book yet. On the other hand your question hints of skepticism. Which is fine for truth seekers. I'm wondering if you are familia...

Iris To hear the voice of God within us, we don't have to stop thinking. Some meditative methods try to teach us to stop our minds. There is no way we can stop our minds. To attempt it would be like trying to stop a locomotive with a your hand. The goal is to allow our thoughts to be guided, perpet...

Absolutely, thats why I invited him and lets see the truth of the matter on all aspects since we have something physical to measure against.


Seems doubtful he would take up on that invitation. The UB doesn't have to be defended only read.
