I know there is no need to look any further than the UB. Erin, Don't stop your search for God at the back cover of the UB. God is too incomprehensibly big to fit in the pages of any book, even one as impressive as the UB. Though it may be the most recent epochal revelation to our planet, it is not ...

Random Mayan: Hey, calendar-maker, why did you stop the calendar at December 21, 2012?
Mayan Calendar-maker: I ran out of room on the rock!

Mystery solved.

According to the Urantia Book (UB) itself, it is the fifth epochal revelation of God to mankind, the fourth being presented in the incarnation of Joshua bar Josef, also known as Jesus of Nazareth. "Urantia", as indicated in the book, is the name given to our planet by God's celestial gover...

The oldest surviving manuscript recently deciphered indicates that the number in Revelation is actually 616, not 666. Also, the majority of John's Revelation (at least the abridged version which the UB indicates we have) is merely coded and symbolic political commentary describing the people and eve...

Michael and the Father are one in essence, in quality of divinity, but they are NOT one personality. They are two distinct personalities and as such, they are perfectly capable of making separate decisions. If they were not thus capable, there would be no need for separate personalities. Whether the...

What you fail to comprehend is that the discussion is not about the artist but about his lyrics. No one has attacked the person who wrote the words, we've dissected the meaning behind the words. But let's look at what you have done. You have not criticized my words but have criticized my person wit...

It isn't? Why say you? Do you see an evil motive here? If my daughter draws me a picture of a tree, I don't nitpick the picture apart, criticize the way in which it was drawn, tell her how she was wrong to make the leaves purple instead of green and then include my friends in on the critique. I app...

This is true as well. Unfortunately, this is not one of those times.

"Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar." This is a quote attributed to Sigmund Freud. It means that sometimes you don't have to look deeply for answers or meanings, and you should just take things at face value.

Sometimes a song is just a song.

OK, Bonita, perhaps we do agree more than we disagree. However, the main point of my continued participation in this thread was just to point out that although there are times when it is entirely appropriate to discuss philosophy, theology and nuanced thought, sometimes it is more appropriate to set...

But I understand where you're coming from Tony. Our culture is very afraid of telling people that their religious beliefs have errors, otherwise 99% of the world would be shouting the fact that killing others through self-martyrdom is not the road to paradise. Almost everyone agrees that this is th...

I agree with you Tony but I just can't ignore the philosophy and theology in the song. Just like Bonita said the type of unity being espoused is more like Buddhism or New Ageism, - the melting away of individuality like many rivers when they reach the sea. To them personality diversity is just an i...

I think the tangent discussion regarding personality is entirely missing the point. I don't think this man's music is trying to teach anyone to believe exactly as he does. I think the point is simply an emotional expression of his personal relationship and perception of God. The UB speaks of Truth, ...

Back to the original point...

I love this song! The artist's passion and love for God is palpable in his performance. I'll certainly be checking out more of his music. Thank you for sharing this, Brother Dave!
