Greets Gerdean, Dang I hear you Gerdean, and the others who offered similar sentiments. I will disagree with necessarily stating that marriage, specifically, is designed to be difficult; but just is difficult because you are actually more than doubling the ever-present "joy" of living life...

Hi Ben, I say there is no antichrist at all. Not mentioned in the UB. Such an actual person would be a really big deal, a major event in human history, even if future history, that a mention would have been made, if not more. The AC figure represented in the Bible represents chaos, evil ect....such ...

Heya Stacey, That passage just might be the one I'm remembering. Great catch! I think that both common sense, and the Papers on Marriage and Family Life make it plain that children are best raised in a loving home, a loving atmosphere and with a mother and father together. Modern mothers can purchas...

Hey Stacey, Jeff and the group, It has been interesting and somewhat disconcerting reading some of the response to this one so far. I have to note the more negative type comments offered about marriage and even the prospect of going through eternity with a mate if they chose, have come from the sing...

Hi Amy, Here in your quote {dark energy charged spheres} they are referring to the Dark Islands of Space pg 173 also in other places called the Dark Giants of space. Good example on pg 655 where such a "dark giant" was the center of a visiting system that passed close by the system contain...

Hi Arno,

So why is this information blowing your mind? And along with your other thread about the Universe Mother Spirit, you seem to be focusing on the mother spirit aspect of universe management. Any particular reason? Just wondering friend. Thanks

Vann

Hey Amy, Did you see my post on the last page? There has been so much added to this thread today I thought you may have missed it. You didn't comment anything back.....no problem anyway. I wouldn't read "God's will" into anything specific that has or is happening in your life. Specific hum...

Hello Amy, My heart goes out to you for your lack of experiencing a good social type love in your life. As in personal human love. But you do surely know of love in the cosmic and God sense. The UB defines love simply as "the desire to do good to others." pg 648 I know you desire to be and...

Hey Jeff, Very well. I would say absolutely yes 100% any person can be completely devoted to God, in His service, do His will, AND be married, along with - with or without a family. Why not? This is part of God's plan, for us to be complete individuals and joined family units. I see the possible con...

Hey Al, Yes I noticed the quotation marks, it is clear that the first paragraph was from the General. I got that. I applaud your taking the "positive teaching" method that Jesus utilized. That is surely the best way. But I don't think Jesus ever agreed with with anyone He was speaking with...

Hey Jeff, I think you are pretty much seeing the whole picture and Larry added some good points. Their IS certainly a spiritual quality to love marriage. That is all good, beneficial, and God honors it. God is surely in FAVOR of marriage. It is the basis of the family and the family IS the basis of ...

Hi Jeff, A great question! And one where again a lack of reality-cosmology knowledge has caused considerable confusion on our world. Hey Stacey too ! Actually, there IS marriage in heaven....it's just not NEW marriages. If a couple is married here, and both are promoted to the Mansion Worlds, they a...

Hey Al, Hmmmmm well I'll bump into you with this one :wink: You agree with what your friend the General said? Why? I can agree with half of his first sentence. You friend apparently knows nothing of God's past, much less current "interventions." Have you been able to share the UB with him ...

Hey Amy and Stacey, I understand how you feel in selecting your quote Amy. I think it is only a product of where you are now in your reading and the evolution of your progressing spiritual studies. Perhaps you come from a Christian background of one flavor or another like most of us did. Many of the...

Hello Changing, It is so nice to meet you here! It is great that you have discovered this truth already, and it is wonderful knowledge to learn that all problems and deficiencies that we live through, or suffer through, in this life will be repaired, mitigated, or replaced with some better, in one o...
