(184.2) 16:0.2 The Seven Master Spirits thus have their origin in, and derive their individual characteristics from, the following seven likenesses: (184.3) 16:0.3 1. The Universal Father. (184.4) 16:0.4 2. The Eternal Son. (184.5) 16:0.5 3. The Infinite Spirit. (184.6) 16:0.6 4. The Father and the...

Hello Pertti, If you are now 2/3 into the UB so you have 1/3 left to go and it gets even better .The revelators really want to know if you want to make the trip. The remaining third is in the middle (but it does, indeed, get better all the time as my understanding deepens). Originally I started in ...

I have "always" known that Christianity offers eternal life. Yet, even though having been a devoted Christian for a time in my life, I never really felt it actually real. Having now read about 2/3 of TUB, I see that it also promises eternal life. While reading it I have developed a strong ...

Positivism seem's to be gaining huge ground in our world. Actually that is not the case with the scientists. They have learned that positivism does not work in social sciences. Originally the main postulate of positivism was to say that the same empirical methods as employed by e.g. physics could a...

I think that the primary message of The Urantia Book is that Truth can only be found within yourself. Truth is personal and (thus) it cannot be found in any (external) covenant or law or dogma. Yet, people prefer simple solutions, such as the idea of instant salvation by adhering to some creed or c...

Thanks, that does increase clarity a bit - though I am still puzzled with my original question. And now I need to distinguish between the aspects of God and Deity. :smile: Meanwhile, I've encounterest this passage: (184.2) 16:0.2 The Seven Master Spirits thus have their origin in, and derive their i...

I think here's one quote that might explain when the record gets blotted out: (615.4) 54:3.2 Although conscious and wholehearted identification with evil (sin) is the equivalent of nonexistence (annihilation), there must always intervene between the time of such personal identification with sin and ...

10:2.8 I am of origin in the Paradise Trinity. I know the Trinity as unified Deity; I also know that the Father, Son, and Spirit exist and act in their definite personal capacities. I positively know that they not only act personally and collectively, but that they also co-ordinate their performanc...

89:9.3 The ancient social brotherhoods were based on the rite of blood drinking; the early Jewish fraternity was a sacrificial blood affair. Paul started out to build a new Christian cult on “the blood of the everlasting covenant.” And while he may have unnecessarily encumbered Christianity with te...

PS. If you want to search the Bible and all of its different versions, go here. http://www.biblegateway.com Thanks for the link! I found one verse that Cruden's did not list: Matthew 9:13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, b...

The only place in the New Testament that I have so far found and that supports that Jesus was sacrificed to redeem us from our sins, is in Hebrew (again relating to Jews), 9:12-28. Having done some more research, I found these verses in the Gospels: Matthew 26:27-28 - "Then he took a cup, gave...

Thanks for the inspiring discussion and many important points! Having read the Bible twice through, I begun thinking of how many of these misunderstandings are actually in the Bible and how many of them are in the interpretations made by churches and denominations during the centuries since. So I en...

I've often wondered if the Mayan Calendar ends in 2012 because they just got tired of calendar making. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_calendar Misinterpretation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is the basis for a New Age belief that a cataclysm will take place on December 21, 2012.

I find this discussion very interesting! 112:5.9 This does not mean that human beings are to enjoy a second opportunity in the face of the rejection of a first, not at all. Heres the Rest of the Quote :arrow: But it does signify that all will creatures are to experience one true opportunity to make ...
