It is said that what the world needs now is the teachings of Jesus.
In Sunday school
children learn about Jesus.
Instead of presenting a ready made religion people need to hear the truth of the gospel so they can develop faith and experience on their own.
Like a family that rears their children in the way, the truth and the life, So can people be enlightened about God, Deity and the Sons Of God-who also seek to spiritualize the worlds and reveal the Father to the mortal races.
Out of a "School"
for Truth, Beauty and Goodness there could spawn individuals who genuinely experience a relationship with God and in turn teach and enlighten their brethren.
This method was started in the days of the Planetary Prince, and Adam & Eve continued to uplift the races by the same principles.
(835.4) 74:7.1 The children of Adam, except for four years’ attendance at the western schools
, lived and worked in the “east of Eden.” They were trained intellectually until they were sixteen in accordance with the methods of the Jerusem schools
. From sixteen to twenty they were taught in the Urantia schools
at the other end of the Garden, serving there also as teachers in the lower grades.
(835.5) 74:7.2 The entire purpose of the western school
system of the Garden was socialization. The forenoon periods of recess were devoted to practical horticulture and agriculture, the afternoon periods to competitive play. The evenings were employed in social intercourse and the cultivation of personal friendships. Religious and sexual training were regarded as the province of the home, the duty of parents.
(835.6) 74:7.3 The teaching in these schools
included instruction regarding:
(835.7) 74:7.4 1. Health and the care of the body.
74:7.5 2. The golden rule, the standard of social intercourse.
(835.9) 74:7.6 3. The relation of individual rights to group rights and community obligations.
(835.10) 74:7.7 4. History and culture of the various earth races.
(835.11) 74:7.8 5. Methods of advancing and improving world trade.
(835.12) 74:7.9 6. Co-ordination of conflicting duties and emotions.
(835.13) 74:7.10 7. The cultivation of play, humor, and competitive substitutes for physical fighting.
(835.14) 74:7.11 The schools
, in fact every activity of the Garden, were always open to visitors. Unarmed observers were freely admitted to Eden for short visits. To sojourn in the Garden a Urantian had to be “adopted.” He received instructions in the plan and purpose of the Adamic bestowal, signified his intention to adhere to this mission, and then made declaration of loyalty to the social rule of Adam and the spiritual sovereignty of the Universal Father.
(836.1) 74:7.12 The laws of the Garden were based on the older codes of Dalamatia and were promulgated under seven heads:
(836.2) 74:7.13 1. The laws of health and sanitation.
(836.3) 74:7.14 2. The social regulations of the Garden.
(836.4) 74:7.15 3. The code of trade and commerce.
(836.5) 74:7.16 4. The laws of fair play and competition.
(836.6) 74:7.17 5. The laws of home life.
(836.7) 74:7.18 6. The civil codes of the golden rule.
74:7.19 7. The seven commands of supreme moral rule.
(836.9) 74:7.20 The moral law of Eden was little different from the seven commandments of Dalamatia. But the Adamites taught many additional reasons for these commands; for instance, regarding the injunction against murder, the indwelling of the Thought Adjuster was presented as an additional reason for not destroying human life. They taught that “whoso sheds man’s blood by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God made he man.”
This is just an example. Much emphasize must be placed on the actual teachings of Jesus.
could be a privately owned enterprise to keep "revelational and spiritual" integrity.
It would take much work and devotion to plan for such an endeavor, but it would be a wonderful way to "Serve" our brothers and sisters.
