    Urantia Book

    Genesis is a wonderful book, and even if the creation account is a mythological narrative, hidden truths and insights can be found in such analogies. The celestials who gave us the Urantia Papers draw from their knowledge-record of things, but what is most important with the scriptures of our major religious traditions is the spiritual truth they contain within their given dispensations.

    If anyone is serious about reading the Papers, begin with the foreward and Paper 1 (Part 1) on the nature of God (most essential) and the central and superuniverses...this will prepare the student with a precursory knowledge/background to proceed with the rest.


    Personality

    Two noteworthy subjects the Papers expound upon is the 'personality' of 'God', and/or 'personality' itself, in its constitution and complexity. I consider the personal aspects of 'God'(among his more transpersonal aspects) Here.... with Ben Masada's 'jewish' viewpoint. The Papers brings special significance to 'personality' and its eternal survival.

    The Universal Father (see especially last 3 sections on 'personality')


    Thought Adjuster

    Another important teaching is about the 'Thought Adjuster' (or 'mystery monitor', 'Father-fragment)..which is actually a fragment of 'God' within the mind/soul of man, a pre-personal spirit-essence which is a gift of the Father to the evolving mortals of time. As the soul progresses in its development in doing the will of God... the soul and the 'thought adjuster' fuse (become one) ensuring the soul's eternal survival into the ages to come. We have a fragment of infinity/eternity within us! - much is expounded on this inner 'spirit-pilot' if you will, but much is also mysterious.

    Origin and nature of Thought Adjusters

    ~*~*~

    The future is always bright, for the plan and purpose of the Universal Father carries its momentum undergirding all creation and its directives...even with the temporay delays of free will choice,...the ultimacy of 'God' prevails.

    "On this visit occurred one of those periodic outbreaks of rebellion against tradition—the expression of resentment for those ceremonial practices which Jesus deemed misrepresentative of his Father in heaven. Not knowing Jesus was coming, Lazarus had arranged to celebrate the Passover with friends in an adjoining village down the Jericho road. Jesus now proposed that they celebrate the feast where they were, at Lazarus's house. "But," said Lazarus, "we have no paschal lamb." And then Jesus entered upon a prolonged and convincing dissertation to the effect that the Father in heaven was not truly concerned with such childlike and meaningless rituals. After solemn and fervent prayer they rose, and Jesus said: "Let the childlike and darkened minds of my people serve their God as Moses directed; it is better that they do, but let us who have seen the light of life no longer approach our Father by the darkness of death. Let us be free in the knowledge of the truth of our Father's eternal love."


    Caino

    "Mortal man was never the property of the archdeceivers. Jesus did not die to ransom man from the clutch of the apostate rulers and fallen princes of the spheres. The Father in heaven never conceived of such crass injustice as damning a mortal soul because of the evil doing of his ancestors."UB

    Your UB is completely false and blasphemous. It's really disturbing, how evil this work of fiction is.

    'Evaluations' are determinations of value. Regarding writings of a religious, philosophic or scientific nature, all things bear investigating. Everything in the UB is open for inspection, just like any other 'book' or 'bible' of like subject matter. Consider 'content' and 'context'.

    From the Foreward, by a Divine Counselor -

    "We are fully cognizant of the difficulties of our assignment; we recognize the impossibility of fully translating the language of the concepts of divinity and eternity into the symbols of the language of the finite concepts of the mortal mind. But we know that there dwells within the human mind a fragment of God, and that there sojourns with the human soul the Spirit of Truth ; and we further know that these spirit forces conspire to enable material man to grasp the reality of spiritual values and to comprehend the philosophy of universe meanings. But even more certainly we know that these spirits of the Divine Presence are able to assist man in the spiritual appropriation of all truth contributory to the enhancement of the ever-progressing reality of personal religious experience—God-consciousness."

    We are aware that in the beging; Angels raced off from heaven' down to the earth while it is was not; within their calling for service. perhaps they Take themselves a body? but realy, should have waited for their turn in a vessle? the mind needs the soul to fully comprehend an project a message?

    where is the end? where we disclose the begining of?

    Krishnamurti said in a talk:

    You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket. The friend said to the devil, "What did that man pick up?" "He picked up a piece of Truth," said the devil. "That is a very bad business for you, then," said his friend. "Oh, not at all," the devil replied, "I am going to let him organize it."

    Ronald Reagan said:

    "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help." Ronald Reagan

    Be veeerrry wary of thought adjustors. IMO people inwardly drawn to human "being" potential are better off with Simone's approach.

    "We can only know one thing about God - that he is what we are not. Our wretchedness alone is an image of this. The more we contemplate it, the more we contemplate him." Simone Weil

    Those of us who can discern good from evil recognize the UB as completely evil.

    But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
