No, Bradly; I am trying to speak in conformity with the philosophy of the Authors who wrote the Urantia Papers...

When I think in terms of morality, I have a thesis, then I also consider the antithesis! I do not banish the consideration of others!

Bradley has said that my words are the "antithesis" of the teachings of the Urantia Book. At least, then, I must be someone who is capable of discernment according to Reason. "Erstwhile" means "beforehand"; before you begin to place a value on words, recognise that the ...

Now I can see why the human soul seeks to gain this assurance. Because conscience, any rational justifications for human actions based on merely appeasing human conscience , are not the same as faith-approval, or assurance that would be conveyed by the Adjuster Fragment to the mind of the human soul...

Thank you Alexandros!! So very well said! To me, Divine Assurance is not any form of divine agreement or stamp of approval for thoughts or decisions. It's not about thoughts or choices but a general feeling of embrace and affection and protection. I do think there are affirmations and confirmation ...

I am trying to be reasonable! I do not mean to be mocked. Parents must provide assurance to children within their own household , in the manner which is suitable to the child's development. 21:0.2 In the vast work of organizing, evolving, and perfecting a local universe, these high Sons always enjoy...

Maybe not! but if my descriptions are sensible, and useful, if my words are helpful to others , let us see. Thanks for the boding of temperance. But in the end, I can rest easier knowing that at least I have expressed my view, that I have tried to do God's will. After all, God's love is unquestionab...

If you think about this "the experience of God's love" as the means of the Adjuster assuring, by faith, the mind of the human individual. But if you can do better work, if you can realise God's will in the fullness , you yourself can find more ways to love others. Sure, I can have the expe...

I can assure others, when they trust me enough to consider my mind and my advice. It is something that Parents to for Children. Of course it is better for Beings to be self-directed in all ways of action and of the mind - that way faith can be of enough assurance! Also, children assure me, by acting...

I think that what you or I think about assurance is not as significant as what the midwayer author of Book IV wished to convey through the usage of that word "assurance". To me, he meant that assurance was Jesus' personal means of signification , in order to convey to the mind of another h...

Me here: The lessons in the quotes referenced (but not posted) by Stephen are that the more we progress in the Spirit and the more we grow the fruits of the Spirit and embrace the Golden Rule, the more Divine Assurance we receive. Assurance is a mechanism and force of response by Deity to our respo...

158:7.5 After they had recovered from the first shock of Jesus' stinging rebuke, and before they resumed their journey, the Master spoke further: “If any man would come after me, let him disregard himself , take up his responsibilities daily, and follow me. For whosoever would save his life selfishl...

Rick Warren, I think we need to focus on farming with the seeds that we've got. If the Garden of Adam-Amadon is discovered, then the benefit of that discovery could remain private and put into the wrong hands, i.e. "not purposed for recultivation and eventual distribution to the proletariat.&qu...

The assurance of human destiny, or of God's love for the human individual, comes out of the experiencial realisation of love , and that one is a loving being. The assurance of the human soul, must come from one's experience of a loving God, characterized by the nurturance and honesty of a real human...

Assurance comes from doing God's will, assurance does not just come from a sentient being's ability to experience love. Maybe Bradly thinks that the experience of God's love comes from the individual having done God's will? But maybe God (the First Source) loves you if you can do God's will. The sta...

Okay, but I would be remiss if I did not state that I have tried always in this forum to use the right and simplest nomenclature, that I have chosen the simplest form of logic to frame my thoughts. 1:7.1 an impersonal entity as the Thought Adjuster 2:1.7 the impersonal Mystery Monitors ... the actua...
