Dear CorleoneLeone, You are certainly not alone in the fact that this Urantia Book is very difficult for believers to reconcile. I had much difficulty early on and was angry about what I read because it did go against my beliefs at that time. However, I kept reading. The reason I kept reading was th...

To be fair to all. There is not one person who has posted on this forum that I have not gained knowledge from. I am speaking of no one in particular. And my post was not to be taken as harsh critique but more so as food for thought... spiritual thought, higher spiritual thought. Being less personall...

This is from an older thread I posted April 28, 2017 Titled: Representation Dear Friends, I have been on this site for a few years. Unfortunately our site is following the Internet trends. The Internet has become a place where discourse can turn into viciousness in an instant. With the faceless free...

Bradly, Nice post !! God knows what I need before I ask, yet sometimes I still ask, especially for the fruits of the spirit especially LOVE. Love does not come all that easily or naturally for me. I have a few family members that I pray for in particular. My nephew has bi polar disorder and sometime...

Well, I cannot say I have any definitive answer, just some ideas. My opinion about this question is that all you really need is desire and then after that you take action. The rest is up to God. Example: At a young age God led me out of the Catholic Church after I lost my "religion" my spi...

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...
