Don't ascribe shame onto my name!! Bearing one's burdens alone is the hallmark of Stoicism, and something I am proud of!


MY FAITH IS REASONED FAITH!!! "Fool! for which is more valuable, the Gold (faith) of man, or the altar (reason) whereby man may sanctify his gift?" Matthew 23:17

But back on the connection between the gift of rhe Son's Spirit and the flood of God Fragments but I think it has to do with the Spirit gravity circuit connection to a world. The Mind and Personality circuits are already connected. Just speculation. What do you think? I think if you do not actually...

In this life, science and epochal revelation give us the more objective, factual, and impersonal (really non-subjective) perspective...but still are we surrounded by and our perceptions driven by ignorance and prejudice and false beliefs and misunderstandings and mysteries and superstitions....and ...

Who challenges the motives or wisdom of this Material Son?? Do you mean the wisdom of the Material Sons, to have sent their children to Urantia? I am saying, how brave of the original human descendents, to offer daughters to Adam in such wise. How brave of such women to face such known risk. I am n...

Because the genetic difference between Nod and the Sangik peoples was expansive, as was the difference between Adam and even the most intelligent or physically capable women of Urantia during his own times. You, Bradly, are referring to something else: mortality rates when genetic similarity is very...

Indeed, and so after Sansa, you have to say that the woman who gave their lives to birth Adam's child did so more courageously than Laotta. I do not appreciate to have been mocked by an inference that is so obvious. It is difficult enough to discuss, or even to mention this probability, as it is. Ma...

My mortal choice pertains to my plans for the universe in the future. I chose a plan that will help me to become "like" the Father. I hope that the First Source and Center will ratify my plan. But can I "choose God"? Nope! I don't even recognise him! I am only fulfilling the plan...

Yes, and I was going to bring this up: the risky procedure of all mothers who participated in Adam's plan. Other women must have known and thus risked life to conceive Adam's child, think about how only 1570 children out of 1684 were born: probably even more mothers died but that statistic is simply...

"If you don't choose God" "choose God"? "follow God"? First of all, I certainly believe that this life is for me to learn to do good. I just do not understand what you mean "to choose God", or to follow God. Maybe you say that means to become conscious of the ...

A deep spiritual experience of feelings, received through individual human faith, that you call assurance. Well, fine but how do you still say "this experience is not of the mind" - because you identify "the mind" as some rationally objective, unfeeling thing. But life was create...

Assurance is certainly of the mind. So...the greatest assurance does not come by or to mind. It is a feeling, a knowing, which does not require an understanding and can never be truly described or articulated. It is much like feeling connected to a current or energy flow that passes through us more ...

I believe the more wisdom we gain the less painful and difficult is the wisdom to come. The more wisdom you gain? I believe you may gain experience but not wisdom per se. The more experience you gain, and if that qualifies you for further universe-service, it is perhaps the judgment of others, that...

Galatians 1:8 (NRSV) states: But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed! The tradition of Christianity comes from the traditions Jesus preserved within various traditions of Mesopotamia. In the book of Enoch...

I look at it this way; here we are on Urantia, but the ones that I love are also seen as having a conjoint existence, with all who have ascended to have found likeness in the heavenly Father. The transcripts are easy enough to read there. fanofVan states: Beware the millstone Stephen. instead of &q...
