Evolution is "An engineering process", you say? I believe that known patterns of life function were applied during the very initial stages of life-implantation. I trust that the Life Carriers proceeded on a "natural course", and that every generation of progressive evolution on U...

59:4.10 The arthropods, or crustaceans, were the ancestors of the first vertebrates. The forerunners of the fish family were two modified arthropod ancestors; one had a long body connecting a head and tail , while the other was a backboneless, jawless prefish . But these preliminary types were quick...

75:8.6 (846.5) All in all, there probably never was a more disheartening miscarriage of wisdom on any planet in all Nebadon. But it is not surprising that these missteps occur in the affairs of the evolutionary universes. We are a part of a gigantic creation, and it is not strange that everything do...

82:1.9 since man is so largely a self-controlled being , sex desire is not altogether periodic; therefore does it become necessary for society to impose self-control upon the individual . 83:6.6 that acme of all human virtues, rugged self-control. 149:6.11 You do well to be meek before God and self-...

I think that the main assurance that is provided from the Urantia Papers, or its Authors, is that all Beings who have attained eternal life in Paradise are trustworthy . The role of System Sovereign or Planetary Prince is to provide for the maximum of creature destiny, especially with due deference ...

The experiencial qualifications are self evident as to why Adam & Eve were selected to enter the Planetary Custody of Urantia! What I want to know is why the Material Son & Daughter like to 'petition' for each new child born from the Material Daughter. How does that relate to creature destin...

But there are people in this world bound by their oaths. People (many persons currently living on Urantia) have sworn to represent Christianity, and we also have Paul's theory of the Body of Christ. If you understand the completed experience of the Supreme Being through the Creator Son's seventh mat...

Riktare, was there any sense of a purpose, or lesson, in your experience? Perhaps you were just given a gift of these dreams for your pleasure alone, but maybe something deeper is meant. Is there relevance to your relationship with the people in your life? I think many of us have been blessed with ...

I am not respinsible for saving souls from damnation and eternal suffering.


But isn't to save a soul from damnation the same as, from Apostle Peter & Andrew's perspective, "winning soul for the kingdom of Havona"? To me, it is the exact same thing.

No one has mentioned Pentacost at all. Bradly Pentecost was mentioned because Pentecost is a synonymous term with "the universal bestowal of the Spirit of Truth, after Jesus' return to the Paradise Father." Pentecost is the universal experience of the Spirit of Truth in the minds of God-k...

The issue we shall tackle, is how ought man be able to ascend, to attain the finality of perfection in Paradise. And when I do that, as an ascender of Ascendington, I will certainly look into that issue, why not did that Personalized Adjuster of that one's mortal indwelling also ascend?!? Just as Ja...

One thing we are told is that the very nature of the Spirit of Truth changes. It changes instantly in quality for all those worlds that had received the Son's Spirit prior to the 7th and final bestowal and it changes the nature of the Son's Spirit in all worlds which receive the Son's Spirit by the...

The Spirit of Truth/ spirit of Truth is a planetary achievement for Creator Sons, whether of the order of Avonal or Michael, that signifies the universal bestowal of Thought Adjusters for every soul of a planet. Therefore, there must be some coordination between the Divine Minister of Salvington, an...
