Will the world accept Jesus soon?

Q: How much longer will it take before the entire mortals on Urantia accept Jesus Christ, annointed son of God, as the saviour of the world?

A: It is impossible to say when Jesus' gospel will overtake our world. But, we have assurances that this WILL take place, and clues as to what has to happen before the world experiences this time of worldwide enlightenment:

195:9.2 But paganized and socialized Christianity stands in need of new contact with the uncompromised teachings of Jesus; it languishes for lack of a new vision of the Master’s life on earth. A new and fuller revelation of the religion of Jesus is destined to conquer an empire of materialistic secularism and to overthrow a world sway of mechanistic naturalism. Urantia is now quivering on the very brink of one of its most amazing and enthralling epochs of social readjustment, moral quickening, and spiritual enlightenment.

195:9.7 Selfish men and women simply will not pay such a price for even the greatest spiritual treasure ever offered mortal man. Only when man has become sufficiently disillusioned by the sorrowful disappointments attendant upon the foolish and deceptive pursuits of selfishness, and subsequent to the discovery of the barrenness of formalized religion, will he be disposed to turn wholeheartedly to the gospel of the kingdom, the religion of Jesus of Nazareth.

195:4.5 Religion is now confronted by the challenge of a new age of scientific minds and materialistic tendencies. In this gigantic struggle between the secular and the spiritual, the religion of Jesus will eventually triumph.

We are assured that there will come a time when the religion of Jesus will prevail, but until that happens, it is up to each of us who enjoy membership in the Kingdom of God to hasten that happy day by following the Master and being a good ambassador for him in our daily lives.
