So it is true that merely reading the UB will not deliver great meaning or value. But neither the meaning nor value of the UB will be gained without reading and study either. Or so I understand.

Jesus said "He who has seen me has seen the Father".

I often wonder how many of those who've just discovered the Urantia Book, come here, see something other than Jesus, and then move on.

"I pray that you may discern the meaning of my teaching with the eyes of the spirit."

And let's not forget this LOL 3:5.13 Is unselfishness— the spirit of self-forgetfulness —desirable? Then must mortal man live face to face with the incessant clamoring of an inescapable self for recognition and honor. Man could not dynamically choose the divine life if there were no self-life to for...

When someone asked Jesus a question, I don't think he ever rolled his eyes at them. Do you?

the latent potentials for rebellion have to be completely exhausted Well then it will be a very long time because as far as I'm concerned, the rebellion was started simply when a lie was told.

I just would like to understand this connection to the Bible.

It has to do with who Jesus is.

This is a huge disappointment for me since I reject the Bible and I do not feel comfortable when the UB quotes the Bible (it only quotes the Bible, not any other holy book) or uses some of its "heroes". It takes time to get familiar enough with the entirety of the UB to realize that it co...

Thank you for your encouraging words Jim. They always add to the many reasons I have for getting out of bed in the morning with a greater determination (than the day before) to make progress in being better at doing God's will and fulfilling His plans.
