So am I reading this thread correctly? The "Dylan email" is (chronologically): a) disturbing (bro_dave) b) suggests delusions of grandeur (bro_dave) c) like Lucifer's self-exaltation (lw) is like the strange preacher in Jesus' time whereas the UB is like Jesus [even though the book is mult...

. . . inviting them (Jesus-Michael and Nebadonia) into your being and opening your heart and mind to them as well as throughout the day as you go about your business . . . This was the essence of the possibility was it not? So yes, of course this is possible, personal and probably necessary for int...

There are many, many common-ground concepts in the mormon religion and TUB. I don't think there is an official stance from Mormon church on the Urantia Book. There is an old prophetic statement (from Enoch perhaps or some other scripture), concerning how, "many books" will be provided and ...

On some levels an error in correlating personal wealth and spiritual attainment is possible in all our religious teachings -- UB included when it claims so (in very general terms) regarding people evolving up the 1-7 circles, etc. If we look to the life of Michael as told in the UB, and his group of...

I don't think there's emnity, but I do find it frustrating when I answer Gerdean's questions and take exception to platitudes, both political and UB, as adequate responses. -- "The dollar is not going to crash, that is the pessimistic rhetoric of left wing ideologues who resent the independent....

http://198.62.75.1/www2/koestler/ The Thirteenth Tribe , by Arthur Koestler seems to be the main body of work claiming most modern world Jewry today is of Khazar descent rather than Semetic descent. For both sides of the theory it's a question of population migration, reasons for Khazar conversion a...

http://www.itulip.com provides credible analysis about the dollar, inflation, real estate specultaion, etc. Counter to what Colter and my dad claim. A collapsing dollar means either massive unemployment or significant inflation, and historical trends indicate our institutions will opt for inflation....

Hi Arc. I can see how my failure to explain myself in the original post leads to some misunderstanding, but I'm not trying to advocate one extreme political viewpoint over another. I tried to provide sources of both extremes who are claiming religious superiority over the other. Both extremes would ...

Hi Arc, In a nutshell, it's as if the Jesus has explained the ideals for both perspectives of a modern, divided world opinion. It's as if they both asked him to choose which perspective is (relatively) right, and he answers yes. There are ironies for both perspectives; opportunity for one side to wo...

line 91: [Urantia Book quoting Jesus], "My friend, it is not a sin to have honorable wealth; but it is a sin if you convert the wealth of material possessions into treasures which may absorb your interests and divert your affections from devotion to the spiritual pursuits of the kingdom. There ...

McCain was put in there as a Republican contrast & comparison to the current administration in power. As in, if one had to pick a Republican for office, would they want McCain, who has shown he's willing to evolve government programs rather than dismantle them; or do we continue privitizing and ...

Bill, I stongly agree with your line: "The question is not who but the process and why." The process raises concerns that profit is the true political platform, not national security. Another major part of the political platform is based on Federalist Society political views and philosophy...

For the sake of moving on then lets drop the election point....I will not bring that up again if you don't. I still think the ideological questions are very relevent. Something isn't matching up between our ideolgy as a country and how corporations and banks are the fruit of this ideaology around th...

refute the points with more than your opinion then. Many American UB readers are of the persuasion that the UB was timed to combat the ideology of Communism -- that is very political, especially since the Cold War and the War on Terror are seamless US ideological struggles. Is it therefore the UB's?...

But there is no way the United States or any other nation should relinquish any of its sovereignty to the current U.N. It must first be reformed from its political influences and loyalties. Sure, you bet. The problem is the moderators fail to apply the same principles to US policies. Time and again...
