New? Now that is a disturbing thought.
That is unless it could be a reprint of the original unedited version.

From time to time there has been someone who posts on here that they are involved in a new addendum or second version or sequel or what-have-you of the Urantia Book. They have always been charlatans.

The idea of a new Urantia Book raises an interesting topic for discussion, though, in terms of the following hypothetical: If there WERE a new Urantia Book, what would you hope/ want/ expect to find in it?

The Urantia Book we study here is like holding the universe seven universes plus and beyond in our hands. It explains God; Heaven; the soul; evil; Truth, Beauty and Goodness; the origins of earth of its creatures; the destiny of earth and of its creatures. It provides a role model for a life perfectly lived, from birth to death! What joy! ....

.... Ahem. So, as I was saying, what more could we need?

I have reread the truthbook posting and see I made an error....apparently there is a new book coming out titled The Untold Story of Jesus. Perhaps the paintings that are being done will be in the book. I apologize for the misunderstanding. Liz

Hi liz, and all...

Yes, there is a new book coming out very soon. It is called The Untold Story of Jesus: A Modern Biography from The Urantia Book. and it is based on Part IV of The Urantia Book.

We are all very excited about it. It's been over ten years in the making. And yes, it does showcase the new Jesus paintings that have been building up for all those years. But there are many more paintings included, too...over 100 paintings in all. So, it is a picture book as well as a story book. Here's the latest painting announcement, sent out this week:

We'll be keeping you posted about it. Right now, we are waiting for the first hard copies to arrive...in the meantime, if you have not seen the collection of paintings so far, please visit! There's a lot to see in our Gallery.

Seeing the total volume of the UB is pretty comprehensive, not sure the revelators would endorse or inspire a new UB coming out, except maybe commentaries or books about the contents inspired by the UB. I've not followed up on the TM (Teaching Mission) movement, is that still going on, and has it impacted and helped to spread the UB message around the world? I still find some modern day channelers interesting of even helpful on some topics, so not personally against. I think we are all 'transmitting' messages from 'God' in one form or another, however perfect or distorted. Its just a matter of 'tuning' :)

IMO anyone who believes they receive and transmit messages for any others shares a delusional gullibility. Anything I "receive" is for me alone....according to the UB.

There are two new books out published by the Foundation. The first is a beautiful book of the parables as presented in the UB and the second are the words of the Master as presented in the UB, both beautifully illustrated and detailed with original paintings inspired by the UB.

I have the parables and will be getting the other soon. Other secondary works and videos and videogames and children's books are available and in production.

freelight...Apologies for my brief dismissal of your sincere inquiry. You deserve better. There are many posts and topics related to channelers and mediumship here for your consideration and further discussion. The claims of channelers are not unique to UB students and have been with us since the caves.

Those who claim affiliation with or inspiration from the UB actually contradict its contents and teachings and distort its message in profound and endless ways. Personally, after several "sessions" and many hours of transcription study, I have neither heard or read anything interesting, relevant, compelling, consistent, factual, or truthful in 30 years of research. They seek an audience and obedient congregation to deliver their "news" and instructions from celestials and the gods in disappointingly predictable words and ways.

There are now enough of them to present a farcical comedy of self contradictory messages and predictions and power conflicts and factions which tend to embarrass each other as they compete for those few gullible enough for such charlantanism. They do not help the UB movement but are probably tools of dissemination and the angels in their way.

Based on my research and exploration of mediumship prior to reading the UB and the teachings of the UB, I long ago concluded there simply is no such thing as true mediumship and channeling or fortune telling or any similar craft of the mind. It simply does not and has never existed. Its claims and practitioners do not prove its existence.

The UB teaches that it certainly does not exist. I already believed that but am reassured in my opinion by that which we study here together. This post may not be any more agreeable but at least it is more wordy....hahaha. Please review the Guidelines here on this touchy topic before reply or further discussion.

Glad you are here and look forward to your contribution to discovery and discussion!!

A couple of related links:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5080&p=61870&hilit=Channeling+OR+channelers#p61870

I think it important to consider the entirety of the implications of channeling. Some are chosen to receive and transmit for the gods but most are not?...think about that. The vast majority of human beings need channelers to send and receive messages both to AND from heaven?...what must I do to be so special?

This means that it is fallacious to presume we are each connected to God and Spirit and personally wired for personal revelation and relationship. It requires submission of freewill and personal sovereignty to others...even and especially other mortals.

Channeling also eliminates the need for and purposes of Epochal Revelations.

Channelers are but priests and witch doctors seeking power over others or self deluded and self important victims of the immature mind at mischief.

Sorry....but any thoughtful person should be able to discern the dangers and falsehoods of all such claims.

Or so I think.

I wonder what you mean when you claim we are all "transmitting" messages from God? Who does this? Do you mean we share the fruits of the Spirit? Or share our hopes and ideals and faith and trust in God? I do not receive messages, news, or instructions for others. Do you? I won't believe it if you claim it. Hopefully I misunderstand your meaning.

Bradly. 8)
