I have been on a mission to read this "Greatest and Most Important Book" again cover to cover. The last few days I have been reading in the vicinity of paper 100, 101 etc. Over the years since I was in grade school I have had considerable internal confusion about my growth, some of it havi...

I have been reading the History of Urantia. I noticed that the time frames in the UB are way way different than what I am finding via google search. The age of our local universe is in pre-formation at about the 900 billion year mark! I am thinking that the universe of universes is far greater in ag...

Dear Liz, Boy have I thought about this one... I agree that truth and goodness are a lot easier to express. We can express truth by simply trying to live and speak our truth, we can express goodness by attempting to eliminate the bad or by doing good. But beauty??? The process engineer in me first f...

I have not been on this site all that long, few years. However, I can't forget the contributions I have received from Larry personally. To me Larry had acquired a special wisdom. His comments reflected a great spiritual insight. I do not agree with everyone who posts on this board including Larry at...

From Fan of Van; I have been rebuked here (multiple times now) to be less personal and stay focused on ideas and the teachings. I am trying to do just that....but I do feel insulted and have been so insulted personally by Jim on several occasions prior to this. What I cannot understand is how others...

1. What is the Meaning of Life? 2. Who am I? First of all, I'm sorry to hear that Larry has left us. That man had Wisdom. There were so many posts he wrote that I was impressed with and inspired by, I couldn't count them. I will miss him. Question 1. I have this idea about the Meaning of Life. In ou...

Okay, a more fuller explaination since you asked. firstly: After reading your response to my first post Bradly I did feel like the ol saying "you need to get out more often." My problem being, my only real Urantia book experience with the public is on line, here and elsewhere, youtube etc....

Bradly, What I posted was my opinion, nothing more. I am opinionated. I am an imperfect fallible human being stating an opinion and I don't have any facts to back up my imperfect opinion. These are just my observations based on how I view the world around me, on what little I know about the religiou...

My question to the members of this forum is this. How is it possible to promote the Urantia Book in todays culture without including those religious factions who would gladly accept the UB as a revelation? We have no right to complain about the slow growth/acceptance of the Urantia Book when we have...

Hello fellow followers; First and foremost I am thankful for my parents. A loving Father and a strong influential Mother. Four brothers who I am close to-- all of which are healthy, have kids and are each doing well. We grew up in Simi Valley California which, at the time, was a "bedroom" ...

Regarding the quote below: 34:7.8 (383.2) Having started out on the way of life everlasting, having accepted the assignment and received your orders to advance, do not fear the dangers of human forgetfulness and mortal inconstancy, do not be troubled with doubts of failure or by perplexing confusion...

The possibilities of experiences are endless. Imagine having a conversation with someone who lived smack dab in the middle of a rebellion. I would have as many questions for them as I would if I were talking with Jesus himself. This book never ceases to astound me. The religious life is the path to ...

This thread is disturbing for me because it is a reminder of where I am not. When the UB illuminates about faith sons, their attributes, abilities and love; the only thing that comes to my mind whenever I read about this is, I'm not that or I'm not there or that's not me. The only comfort I have is ...
