This just caught my attention: 166:4.1. While most Palestinians ate only two meals a day, it was the custom of Jesus and the apostles, when on a journey, to pause at midday for rest and refreshment. And it was at such a noontide stop on the way to Philadelphia that Thomas asked Jesus: "Master, ...

Wow. Great insights from all. Thank you. @Riktare: That's a good point. We could probably raise these issues during global religious conferences or The parliament of the World's religions etc.. Maybe we don't even have to go that big, we could simply, on an individual level, raise these issues withi...

I came across this quote as I was reading today, and it got me thinking, how can we combat this dangerous trend that is clearly infecting our societies? 68:2.2 (764.5) While the level of intelligence has contributed considerably to the rate of cultural progress, society is essentially designed to le...

LOL :biggrin: Have you read " Micheal Hart's" response to that book in the link Yoder provided ? http://www.amazon.com/THE-ESCAPE-Mary-Alice-Brown/dp/1612157890 Basically he gave it a rating of "1 star" and challenged the author, and thereby, actually ACTED upon it directly and r...

Hey Patrick, Could you please help me understand a couple of points in your post here? Me in RED Why does the concept of the atonement matter with regard to my faith? It matters because it explains why He died for us. Could you please elaborate on that, because, I don't see how his dieing as an aton...

Hello Yoder777, The fact that The Poem was on a list that didn't exist when I first picked one up, had nothing to do with my reading it. I wasn't even aware of a list way back then. I didn't really look for confirmations or proofs back then. My spirit knew what it was dealing with and I followed it...

Hey Patrick :smile: , Thank you for that brief about her work, as I said, it is quite interesting; I have been fond of the books written by saints throughout my entire adult christian life, I've read famous scriptures like "The Imitation of Christ" which was my favorite book , and then the...

I would like to know what everyone thinks regarding the below: 47:1.6. No ascending mortal can escape the experience of rearing children—their own or others—either on the material worlds or subsequently on the finaliter world or on Jerusem. Fathers must pass through this essential experience just as...

Very well said JIM, Thank you for that detailed input, I couldn't agree more. O:) Although, I am not entirely with you regarding why we sometimes resort to quoting and "dissecting" - if you may - of some quotes of the book in our efforts to understand the revelation clearly; I know it is n...

Thank you, Brad. I think I am beginning to understand the term. The difficult thing is to find a Spanish word that translate the concept. Very often literal translations don't work. That is true, might I suggest trying to look up the etymology of the words, to understand their origins, and then com...

kicoverz, my initial post contains a link to a 1000 page resource document created by a sceptic who was out to find errors and debunk the Valtorta work. This resource document is extremely thorough and easily read and navigated to answer anyone's questions about Valtorta's work. What the author, St...

Hello Patrick, Thank you for such an interesting topic! I did read a little bit about Maria Voltorata in the wikipedia page related to her, and it is indeed interesting that the pages were revealed within a time span that extends that of the revelation of the urantia book. On 23 April 1943, Good Fri...

Hi Greybeard and Boomshuka, Strangely enough early this morning I was waiting for the bus in the countryside on a fabulously beautiful summer day with a fresh wind blowing and pondering what scientists might have thought 200 or 300 years ago about the concept of either continental drift or the enor...
