    The Late Great Urantia Revelation




    Welcome everyone to the thread,

    This space is dedicated to sharing and discussion of the Urantia Papers, or what formally came to be known in the public domain as the Urantia Book (UB), a large comprehensive tome of 196 Papers given to our planet in the early part of the 20th century by a group of celestial personalities, serving as the 5th epochal revelation to our planet 'Urantia' (Earth). The revelators used the highest concepts of knowledge among the archives of humanity at that time within the schools of science, religion, history and philosophy, expanding our conceptual frame-work of the universe and the purpose of creation in time and eternity, particularly explaining the ascension-program and eternal progression of souls in their journey towards divine perfection.

    The Urantia Book Universal Introduction




    The volume is divided in 4 parts (online study edition indexed here) -

    1. The Central and Superuniverses

    2. The Local Universe

    3. History of Urantia (planet Earth)

    4. The Life and Teachings of Jesus


    ~*~*~

    These introductions below explain much more for those interested in discussing

    The UB an introduction

    An introduction to the UB for Conservative Christians


    Urantia Book Differences From Traditional Christian Beliefs

    Truthbook Intro.

    3-Part Video Introduction to the Urantia Book

    Urantia Foundation Intro.

    UB Websites Directory


    ~*~*~

    Open, explorative and insightful discussion is encouraged here concerning the cosmology, philosophy, theology revealed in the papers,...their concepts, ideals, values, meanings within the contextual frames provided, whether one sees this work as 'inspired', truly 'revelatory' (more or less) or as religious science fiction or a tapestry of amalgamated influences from various sources,...no matter,....respectful and civil dialogue is encouraged, for those interested in the many subjects covered in this work.

    Thank You.

    To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.

    ― Theodore Roosevelt

    Identity politics are a dangerous form of idolatry

    Yes, the discussion above is our 'charter-thread' on the Urantia Papers, and an excellent resource of commentary and research sites for this epochal revelation to our world.

    I hope to post daily thoughts from the UB to stimulate dialog as we have entered a new era of enlightenment.

    I am a life long student of the book and come from a family of UB readers.

    Urantia? This is: "Earth."

    Urantia = pure bunk.

    Since it is a false 'gospel' it is accursed:

    Galatians 1:8
    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    We know the source of things that are accursed: hell. Here's a great source of information on a Biblical evaluation of the Book of Urantia: http://ubhoax.org/

    "All too long has man thought of God as one like himself. God is not, never was, and never will be jealous of man or any other being in the universe of universes. Knowing that the Creator Son intended man to be the masterpiece of the planetary creation, to be the ruler of all the earth, the sight of his being dominated by his own baser passions, the spectacle of his bowing down before idols of wood, stone, gold, and selfish ambition these sordid scenes stir God and his Sons to be jealous for man, but never of him."

    Man tends to create God in mans own image, he assumes that God must have the same emotions and feelings that man himself has. But men and women fail to consider the limitations of their own finite existence. The children of God grow in experience, God remains a constant.

    Aimiel, have you read the Urantia Book? If so, do you recall what the "religious authorites" said about Jesus ans his revelation?

    I'm not religious or a religious authority, in any form. I'm Christian, and we're set free from religious trappings, such as the bondage of the New Age movement.

    I have not read it. One doesn't have to read fiction to recognize that it is fiction; or to recognize the foolishness of someone who's been duped by it and other similar fiction. The light that is in the Urantia Book is darkness, that much is clear.

    Being a Christian then surely you must be familiar with those who rejected Jesus out of hand? You have the same narrow and close minded attitude of those who rejected Christ (demonstrating that you would have been no different in his day) using the same approach.

    Its telling and even fascinating how people have absolute and unquestioned faith in debunking books about books that they have not read. Aimiel, true to form you're like so many so called christians who claim the master by association but demonstrate so little of the spirit of his teachings. Go back to sleep.

    Yes, your spirit is very familiar to me, no matter the disguise.
    You have the same narrow and close minded attitude of those who rejected Christ (demonstrating that you would have been no different in his day) using the same approach.
    That's simply not the case, having accepted, rather than rejected His Spirit and His Words, unlike yourself.
    Its telling and even fascinating how people have absolute and unquestioned faith in debunking books about books that they have not read.
    What's fascinating is how when one rejects The Gospel, one will swallow anything.
    Aimiel, true to form you're like so many so called christians who claim the master by association but demonstrate so little of the spirit of his teachings. Go back to sleep.
    His Spirit is more than teachings, He is alive, and lives in me. One cannot easily slumber when The Living God directs one's steps and keeps your paths well-lit. It's clear from your obvious hatred of Christians (those who believe Jesus) that He isn't your 'master' but your pet word to make you look like one of His own. If you knew Him, you'd recognize His sheep.
