Hi, Sibs. Glad to back again. We know the only true religion is our relationship with god. So, actually our service is who we are. Our actual service...not our acts of service. Those are of a higher order. I've been serving over on Yahoo!Answers this month. Their Religion and Spirituality forum has...

Rick, Regarding the "truth"book idea, perhaps you could think of it not as "this book is the truth" or "this book contains truth" but more as "this book can help lead one to truth". In the latter respect, it is certainly still valid to call it a "truth bo...

Thanks for the quotes, Iris. That's one part of the equation but there is also reference to capacity increase that I'm sure I've read before. Aw, heck, I guess I'll just stop being lazy and look for myself. :) Found one! 54:6.10 As you ascend in the survival experience, you will broaden your univers...

At my last study group meeting a woman commented that occasionally in her life she would get the feeling that despite all her studying, prayer and meditation she just really didn't know anything about God or that she was actually regressing spiritually instead of growing. Others, including myself, i...

The ability to hide behind anonymity is indeed a big and common reason many people do this. Another big reason is self-protection. It can be very dangerous to give out your personal information over the Internet. This is true not only for things such as identity theft, but imagine that someone you h...

I believe Ben was referring to the references in Mark chapter 11 and Matthew chapter 21 of the Bible. Mark 11 12The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but ...

I agree with what Larry said, for the most part. Furthermore, the UB authors themselves stated that they borrowed concepts from existing human sources when necessary. This alone should tell you that stating "This came from the Urantia Book" is not necessary because it can be found in other...

I suggested the networking website thing a while back both here ( http://forums.truthbook.com/viewtopic.php?t=2563 ) and in other UB-related areas and got fairly lukewarm response at best so I tabled the idea. I suppose if interest is increasing I could reconsider the idea. I think I'd have to chang...

It therefore could be loosely said that every time we get together at the table to eat and drink, if we are God-conscious, spirit-led human beings, we are participating in communion. Gerdean, I don't think this is a loose interpretation at all. I think this is exactly the situation to which the Mas...

Tony, I do communion, I just change the meaning in my mind. Bread = the living word of truth incarnated in the likeness of mortal flesh. Wine = the outpouring of grace and truth. You can personalize your own understanding, no one ever asks what you were thinking. Colter Colter, I understand that an...

I was just wondering if y'all attend church... why and why not... and what criteria ya used to select a church... Last fall I became acquainted with a Christian pastor who was looking to start a new church in my area. He was looking to form a panel of people of various spiritual perspectives he cou...

I have no idea about the color, but you can read a bit about the history of the papers and how we got them at the following link. http://www.divinitywithinus.org/study/AHistoryoftheUrantiaPapers/AHistoryOfTheUrantiaPapers.htm Edit: It just occurred to me that the color of the book could be a result ...

I have found much of the Upanishads to be chock full of truth, beauty and goodness. I would definitely consider them one of my favorites.

If you were told this by a student of the UB then that person was mistaken. As Larry said, Christianity is the religion that claims Jesus is the 2nd person of the Trinity. The UB clearly teaches that Jesus, aka Michael of Nebadon, is a Creator Son - the "offspring", if you will, of the Uni...

It's refreshing to see this perspective from someone who apparently has much experience and intimate involvement with the major UB organizations. I must say I don't find much to disagree with in this message. David has made some very good points and has some good ideas about dissemination. I have a ...
