Jesus once said, “I have come to proclaim the establishment of the Father’s kingdom. And this kingdom shall include the worshiping souls of Jew and gentile, rich and poor, free and bond, for my Father is no respecter of persons; his love and his mercy are over all.”

The Urantia Book makes it clear that God does not favor one child over another, nor withhold his affection and ministry because of ideological, religious, cultural or racial variances. Human sexuality is not a deterrent to the quality of the spiritual relationship between man and God. Sexual preference does not diminish God’s love for man nor man’s ability to love and crave to know God.

The Urantia Book also tells us that in order for human beings to acquire genuine altruism, we must encounter situations of social inequality. It says that God would have us create a true brotherhood of mankind based on the fact of our shared spiritual parentage, but this will be impossible so long as we continue to find reasons to hate each other in God’s name. In a sense, the book holds up our sincere love for one another as the best way to measure our spiritual maturity. The Urantia Book absolutely does exalt the man-woman partnership as the most ideal environment for child rearing and says that good families are the foundation of civilization, but it does not declare social edicts.
