A method to extent material life is not going to make you closer to eternal life.
The ultimate desire for us should be to shed our 'mark of the beast' that is embedded in our material bodies.
We need to be God-like spirit beings some time in the future to become eternal finaliters to get in to the presence of the eternal Father.

Whilst God may allow things like this to occur, we have to remember, nothing happens that is not either allowed by God or chosen by God to occur for his purposes. He has the final command in all areas and he has given the express instructions that the ONLY way to eternal life is by faith in the son, Jesus Christ.

Through him and for him, all things were made and without him, nothing was made. He is not merely a exemplary being on Earth as the Urantia book suggests, but the co creator of the universe at the Father's side and now appointed as the ruler of all.

Without accepting our inherent flaws as human beings as descendants of Adam and Eve, and understanding our sinful state and need for a savior, we have no hope. Soon the Lord himself will appear in great glory and usher in the millennial kingdom after our adversary Satan has been locked away without the ability to influence the coming kingdom. This book is the manual of Satan, who once had the position of knowing greater universal knowledge. He is the Father of Lies and has cleverly constructed this manual to discredit the truths of the bible our Father YHWH has revealed to us.

I would encourage you to turn back to God and your savior Jesus Christ through the revealed Holy Bible scriptures and ask for healing and forgiveness for looking into this book.

I think we all accept our flaws. None of us are perfect, and we all accept the fact that we are in the process of becoming perfected, a long process. None of us inherited sin. Sin is not something that can be inherited. Sin must be a fully conscious decision against God's will. We are all born with a clean slate. What happens in our lives is determined by our own decisions. No one is born into this world in a sinful state. No one. On the other hand, we are all subject to potential evil; but sin is not evil and evil is not sin. Evil simply means, "not yet perfect". Sin means consciously refusing to become perfect, refusing to let God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

In regards to being "saved," salvation is a gift that God gives to all of his creatures who have even a flicker of faith in him. That is the sign of a truly loving Father, wouldn't you say? There is no such thing as "no hope". There is always hope where there is faith and trust. God has such hope for us that he gives each of us a fragment of himself to live in our souls and guide the way. If you can't believe in the inner light, the pilot light, then believe at least that God gave us his Son, Jesus. The spirit of Jesus the Son and the spirit of God the Father is the Spirit of Truth which they both gave to us as a gift, to live in our souls and show us the Way. That information is in the Bible and in the Papers. This is the living God, our hope for life eternal, which begins right here, right now.

There's no reason to fear, but I understand why you might. What I don't understand is why you want all of us to be afraid like you are. That can't be good. The universe is a very friendly place. We're all loved and cherished regardless of what we read. Jesus said it's not what goes into a man that defiles him, it's what comes out. What a person reads is not defiling, it's what he does with it, how he acts. Jesus said, "By their fruits you will know them." As a group, Urantia Paper readers have rather fragrant fruit, I think. At least that's the way I see it.

In Friendship,
Rexford

Actually the Papers "suggest" little but tell much about this universe Creator Son which you might find interesting if you did indeed read the Papers. By your warning I doubt you've read much yet....but here's hoping that curiosity and truth seeking might lead you to want to know and discover more about the awesome reality of this Son of God and Son of Man.

At its core and essence, the Urantia Papers are complete verifications and further illumination of the Gospel OF Jesus as it is presented in the Bible - the paternal loving nature of the Father for all his creation and children and the resulting brotherhood of all children within that creation. The Jesusonian message of confidence and comfort and joy in our Source and Destiny by the ministry of both Divine love and the sharing of that love one with another is the central teaching of the Papers.

Our "inherent flaws" are truly only our dual nature...we are born in a material world which is but a temporal birth place for those who also recognize our spirit endowment and nature. It is definitely true that a believer is challenged with transferring the seat of our identity by our free will choices to embrace the spirit nature to progress in our spiritualization and grow ever closer to God in heart, in mind, in deed, and in that natural state of sonship to become more and more like Jesus and our Father in Heaven.

I am perplexed why another believer would see any need to come here to "warn and advise" such a lovely group of fellow believers who strive daily to know God, become like Him, and seek Him out in our daily walk in loving service to our fellows.

This "manual" is certainly not satanic in any regard...but one would be required to read it to know that. Best wishes to you upon the pilgrim's path to Paradise. Please return when you wish to study and share the actual words in the Papers for they are filled with Light and Life and Love and Praise for God and all children of God. Peace be unto you.
