There is nothing - absolutely nothing at all, not an iota - about the love of God that is impersonal or "apersonal"!!! I am glad that you have stated this because now we can clear up our misunderstanding: the Divine Minister's love for me, through the adjutant mind spirits, is not a parti...

It IS delusional, to think that "God loves me" because, often enough, that evaluation comes as an exclusivity . God loves me, more than you. Well, but God loves EVERYONE, this love that God feels towards me is an apersonal aspect of universal love. So, think instead how God must love that ...

That is well-stated Alexandro, however you must consider to yourself if a person could fulfill that individuated destiny of the soul, without having done God's will! Here, you can see that it is only possible via personality unification of three existential Deities within the mind/soul of that indiv...

But you are stating that the feeling of love is the proof of assurance! This is an overblown argument. When Saul was beset upon by the Philistines, and his men adviced him that David would be the man who would slay Goliath, Saul was not convinced! The confidence of his men was not enough to assure S...

"Proof of ability", and "Dedication of purpose" are really the measure of Jesus' own assurance, Bradly: 137:1.1 Andrew said: “I have observed you ever since you came to Capernaum, and I believe you are the new Teacher, and though I do not understand all your teaching, I have full...

Assurance is really wrought of simpler terms! "Monkey see, monkey do." Is one measure. Culturally, you must see that: good and bad habits that your children learned from you! "Game recognses game", is another. You have to witness how tendencies and adaptations are learned experie...

The idea of "love as a feeling", that modus by which "personal assurances" may be recognised, is an intriguing one. Very self-explanatory, and 'feeling' as a basis would be very difficult to affirm! I am not someone who needs God's constant reassurance that he is my spiritual fat...

But love does actually flow through our mortal tabernacles ? When you say "our being", that is something assumed to have physical center on Paradise, right? If all of our "Beings" have their true constitutions on Paradise, then there is practically 0 distance for you to theorize ...

This issue is incumbent upon the theory that even though the Violet People gradually or eventually become intermixed with the evolutionary peoples of Urantia. In this notion of Andite, i.e. < 6.25% Violet inheritance, the theory is that there are many, many blends of Andite on Urantia, and perhaps e...

... Mortals may choose not to seek perfection . ... But mortals are given freewill and personality. ... We must choose. I believe that the SOUL of mortal man may choose... eventually! I believe that you are right, Bradly, except it is not choose "not to seek", but rather choose "to n...

Evolution must first of all originate in imperfection. That which is perfect is not evolving. It may be experiencing, but it is not evolving. Evolution is a process. A process of perfecting. We are told that life itself, even in its most basic forms is striving. Striving for perfection. All of life...

Is spirit gravity something between mind and personality gravity? That is not well-explained. Okay, but you mention this "personality assurance", and this is fair. Personality assurance would be like personal assurance that one has obtained in the faith of his own mind. But reasoned assura...

Right, love mixed with human desires. You can call it something else at that point if you want to. But Jesus' own desires cannot be called "inhuman". There must be some means for the actual love that each human individual possesses, when these grow through outward means suitable to real sp...

You know, sometimes I tend to "mix up" what is considered "stoical", versus or compared with what is considered "cynical", but consider this: you know people always say "Love is such a wonderous thing," or "love is a many splendoured thing", things l...
