Didn't Henry David Thoreau say "that which governs best; governs least." If Jesus thought that politics and secular laws could be used to make the world a better place, He would have gladly sat upon the throne of David. He did not. He knew that politics and secular laws empower the politic...

How can we become self-governing if we give the state even more authority than it already has? In both the Urantia Book and the Bible, Jesus said "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and render to God the things that are God's." J.B. says: Most every parent that would take the pr...

MaryJo606 says: Bad parenting is such a vicious cycle - from one generation to the next, and it is the rare family, or parent, who manages to buck that trend and who is able to parent a child in a better way. Stacey Jackson says: You seem to be worried about adults getting punished, but you don't se...

Jesus didn’t go around attacking evil or punishing wrongdoers. He went about doing good. In the same way, if parents could only learn to reinforce the positive qualities in their children, instead of attacking or punishing the negative, parenting skills would take a quantum leap forward and so would...

Do you see every thing through the lens of conspiracy? No, but I am attempting to explain what some of the programming protocols of the master intellectual fraud are all about. Are you one of those persons that hold a inner fight against the power hungry persons of the world that seem to have a hol...

While I remain skeptic of the Urantia Book, here are a few quotes which strongly ring true for me which I believe are relevant to this discussion. paper 195 pg 2078: The sincere pursuit of goodness, beauty, and truth leads to God. And every scientific discovery demonstrates the existence of both fre...

Jim, I fully agree that a problem exists, but I do not agree that a parental licensing law is the answer. The problem exists because our world has long been ruled by the love of power. Enabling the state to dictate who may or may not become a parent serves the love of power. There is no political so...

You don't need a license to understand that the power of authority isn't based on Truth, but rather, Truth is the Authority. And when the Power of Love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Jim, About three years ago you stated you were interested in the issue of parental licensing because of your not so pleasant upbringing. Did you come from a dysfunctional family? Do you believe the state should have stepped-in during your childhood to correct your not so pleasant upbringing? If your...

It's easy to look around in our society and see examples of bad parenting in other people. But it is another matter entirely to look in the mirror and say "I'm a bad parent." paper 72 pg 811: The home life of this people has greatly improved during the last century. Attendance of parents, ...

Chris, You make some interesting points. Do you have kids in school at this time? The public school system cannot teach eternal values in a secular environment. From a young age, children are not taught to believe in themselves, they are taught to work hard, go to school, go to college, and for what...

Iris, One day I got really angry and demanded that my son do a written book report. The teacher agreed to it. My son's report was atrocious with grammar and spelling errors worse than a first grader. The report came back with a big smiley face on it and a big letter A. That's when we transferred to ...
