I have been watching this video of which I think there are three parts and I find it very enlightening to help us understand each other with regard to the positions we take socially, spiritually, politically, etc. I am humbled by the clarity of this presentation and I hope you take time to check it ...

HonestProfessor, Thank you for this thread and welcome to the Forum. You wrote: Reflecting upon the posts above, it seems to me the potential danger of globalism or world government (at least in the present time) is what kind of government that would be. We in the United States are quite fortunate t...

I first found out about The Christ Experiment from a thread here at this forum. thechristexperiment.org is the website btw. The goal of this group of Urantia Book Readers is to take the advise in part 4 of the UB and copy just what Jesus did in his ministry. Jesus set up a group of disciples led by ...

Jerry wrote in response to Bradley's post: The above UB passages are among the most incredible in the entire book. The soul-potential that can be actualized is awesome, but not always easy. We have one foot in the cosmic soup, eager to evolve, to grow and become one with God. But our other foot is i...

Jerry said: What you see as the demonization of American Christianity is due to some sectors of American Christianity having been polluted with nationalism, racism, sexism, materialism and still stuck in many superstitious belief systems: 195:9.9 (2083.5) Christianity has dared to lower its ideals b...

From Agon D. Onter: Paul, Can you be more specific as to whom exactly you are referring to when you use the term "Religious right leaning citizens". By what characteristics do you identify them? How do you recognize one who is "religious right leaning" as opposed to .... religiou...

Jerry, Once again, there are journalists of good will and who have effective bullshit detectors. Media bias? What does that mean? What do you think the role of media should be in a democracy? Not speak truth to power? Our current president IS dividing us, he IS sowing chaos by calling Mexican people...

Jerry, about this comment I made: "I find it funny how people listen to and believe what the press (media) tells them to believe." I was referring, not to you or any one person. I was referring to the past verses the present. As a youngster watching the news in the 60's the news anchor onl...

jsg I respect your opinion. There are many people who believe politically like you believe. However, not all UB readers hold the same opinion politically, nor do they all believe the same way you believe about our current President. Every President since I have been alive has been horribly criticize...

I find it funny how people listen to and believe what the press (media) tells them to believe. These institutions make money on bad news. If it is not bad news it doesn't become news. Jesus said: “To a God-knowing kingdom believer, what does it matter if all things earthly crash?” The spiritual brot...

Dear William S., You are not alone. After my first read-through I was in disagreement with a lot of what I read. I was angry at some of it too. It took a long time to become accustom to the blunt and direct language. I truly did not like whole sections of what I was reading. For some reason I persis...
