Bradly - thanks - so if Van was off earth when Adam came - I forget how long that was ago in the UB - but if the lake Van still has his name - then it must have been handed down since after Adam and Eve were here - Van doesn't sound like a turkish name - Iam wondering then - how it came to be known...

I have understood that Jesus was a revelation of the Father not only to Urantia, but to all the worlds of Nebadon: "The Scriptures contain much that is true, very much, but in the light of your present teaching, you know that these writings also contain much that is misrepresentative of the Fa...

Certainly so. I think each of Michael’s 7 bestowals was an example and revelation of the Father to all of Nebadon. Everything a Paradise Creator Son does is a representation of God the Father. But let us not confuse epochal revelation or the planetary mortal epochs with the bestowal ministries of th...

"I surmised that both the 4th and 5th epochal revelations are not revelatory, if you will, for only Urantians - they are epochal for everyone in Nebadon." Hi Bradley, The completed bestowal missions of a Creator Son are "epochal" - anytime anywhere they happen. It's a big deal. ...

The final words of the last Paper in the UB: 3. The Supremacy of Religion 196:3.1 (2093.6) Personal, spiritual religious experience is an efficient solvent for most mortal difficulties; it is an effective sorter, evaluator, and adjuster of all human problems. Religion does not remove or destroy huma...

What is the definition of "inspired" with regards to The Urantia Book? As a former Christian, my understanding of revelation and inspiration are different, I suspect, from what these words mean in The Urantia Book. The words are the same but their definitions seem to differ. Once upon a t...

Truth is inspired to me. Art is inspired. The UB is not the "word of God" by any claim or definition. Neither is the Bible. The words in the Bible are written by people, perhaps inspired people. People who received personal revelation and were inspired to write about it. Somebody else late...

What does it mean to say that The Urantia Book is a revelation? There is "personal revelation" and there is "epochal revelation". Personal revelation is between Deity and the mortal directly. Epochal revelation is a planned planetary revelation and the UB claims itself to be onl...

Thanks to all who have followed along on this journey of discovery. The topic remains open for any comments and discussion others may wish to offer!! 103:9.10 (1142.1) When reason once recognizes right and wrong, it exhibits wisdom ; when wisdom chooses between right and wrong, truth and error, it d...

103:9.9 (1141.7) The full realization of the reality of mortal life consists in a progressive willingness to believe these assumptions of reason, wisdom, and faith. Such a life is one motivated by truth and dominated by love; and these are the ideals of objective cosmic reality whose existence canno...

In this day and age when things are so complex and levels of litigation are high, I find that formally volunteering can be a daunting task. In my own experience, I might be very well qualified to help out an organization that helps individuals, but my application to volunteer, every bit as involved...

Sometimes it helps to approach "service" from a different angle, like evaluating whether you can live without hurting anyone. Indeed!! Well said. First...do no harm. To do no harm and to serve others with effect comes with experience and wisdom. But the effort to share our compassion shou...

Greetings and welcome Donovan. I wonder... is service an act or deed? Or is it the motive for any good deed? Isn't it our intent and purpose and priorities that determine, define, and deliver service - the action expression of love and altruism and caring and compassion? Like art, isn't the expressi...

Very relevant quote. It is never too late for any mortal to redeem themselves by their freewill choices, motives, intentions, and priorities. The Devil himself can be forgiven and mercy is extended. 111:1.3 (1216.4) Material mind is the arena in which human personalities live, are self-conscious, ma...
