As I said in my initial post; " As for feeling guilt, let me share what I personally believe to be true ;". You will find this nowhere EXPLICITLY stated in TUB. It just seems to me the natural, even obvious conclusion to draw. When one views creation from this perspective, all of life's ch...

Bro Burgo, there is no reality in the past. It simply does not exist! We live in the "eternal now", and things past serve only to have moved us to this, our eternal moment of existance. As for feeling guilt, let me share what I personally believe to be true; God is Infinite, and Perfect. E...

Not to nit-pick, but "Orvonton - superuniverse (7 universes one inside the other) is not accurate. I did not go though all the definitions, but lets not confuse the already confused if possible :shock:

For me, the largest fear is making those concentric circles a source of target practice, and not a rallying point for seekers of truth. This Revelation WILL succeed. It is not just we who have an interest in its succeeding, but the entire Universe and it administrators as well. Yes, we must be ready...

Welcome indeed Joyful! :wink: We each walked where you are walking, and know the wonder and awe the UB inspires. But maybe even more wonderful still, you will find the Book seems to "grow" with each re-reading. As you comprehend more, there is always more to reach for. Let me caution you t...

No one so far has mentioned Unity, which not only is very friendly to UB readers, but in many locations, actually allows them to hold their group meetings in the church. Religion, being the most personal of practices, will draw each of us to our place of personal comfort. And, if and when we outgrow...

William, thank you also for this significant sharing. While you are of course correct in saying that words simply fail, still, for those of us who have not yet had such an experience, it gives us a glimpse. Thank you both for letting your lights shine where we they illuminate! Bro Dave :smile: :smil...

Kingdom, I think you'll find you have many kindred spirits here. I don't know if you have read the UB yet, but what you've already shared has much in common. Thank you for your prayers, they are always welcome. However, luckily I have not been seriously ill. I just had to UN-retire, and the 10 hour ...

Kingdom, thank you for sharing your spiritual experience. THIS is EXACTLY the kind of sharing for which this area was created! :wink: God touches each of us as we are able to receive Him. Once so touched, that person must indeed be forever changed. If you are new to this site, I'd like to welcome yo...

Fatsoul, I was just wondering... have you thought about sending your step-father a letter of forgiveness? It could have quite an impact! It could even be a turning point in his thinking. I'd be careful not to do it in person though, as defense mechanism could make things even worse! Letting him know...

fetish, you missed my point. decimation of certain of the races is a forgone certainty no matter where this process occures. It is the merging of what is good in each of those initial races that matters. Unfortunately, this process got disrupted, and Urantia never got the proper mix, and only a dilu...

GREAT POST, Anyway, I suspect we have it all backwards. God, being perfect, is up to His "eyebrows" in perfection. He created man to be IM-perfect, so that we could choose and thereby learn, and eventually ACHIEVE perfection. So, lets stop looking down on the races with more potential for ...

Acutally, it may be most useful NOT to have the UB mentioned! :shock: If first, folks become comfortable and familiar with some of its concepts, they may be more open to looking at The Fifth Epochal Revelation when it finally takes a higher profile. Knee jerk reaction against anything as sweeping as...
