    I'd carefully consider my commentaries granted earlier, which inspire free thinking and an expansion of consciousness. Concepts such as 'progressive revelation', 'soul-evolution' and 'ascension' are serious ones to consider

    You are stuck with a preconception about a book having to be 100% infallible, final or correct,...when such a position is wholly unnecessary. No religious writing is 100% perfect or FINAL for that matter, and a belief in such is only a hindrance to one's eternal progress.

    66 is perfect and you deny that. Every single letter comes from God. Not denying that perfection is the expansion of the consciousness. Lot of things follow that. You moved on denying God's Word and found emptiness

    Lightbulb Fullness of Deity all-encompassing.......

    I'm doing quite fine thanks - I havent limited the Infinite to 66 books. Thats impossible. Again, its quite fine to enjoy whatever religious book you've been brought up on, trained with, or chosen to believe in, for whatever reason,...but it does not represent, neither contain All that God IS. Have you ever considered what being 'infinite' means? Also have you contemplated infinity itself?

    Do exercise your imagination, its what 'God' has given you to engage. If you dont engage it, how can you enter upon the wonder, grandeur and glory of the cosmos? All begins with the infinite and ends within the infinite, since nothing can exist outside the infinite.


    1. GOD'S EVERYWHERENESS


    3:1.1 The ability of the Universal Father to be everywhere present, and at the same time, constitutes his omnipresence. God alone can be in two places, in numberless places, at the same time. God is simultaneously present “in heaven above and on the earth beneath”; as the Psalmist exclaimed: “Whither shall I go from your spirit? or whither shall I flee from your presence?”

    3:1.2 “`I am a God at hand as well as afar off,' says the Lord. `Do not I fill heaven and earth?'” The Universal Father is all the time present in all parts and in all hearts of his far-flung creation. He is “the fullness of him who fills all and in all,” and “who works all in all,” and further, the concept of his personality is such that “the heaven universe and heaven of heavens (universe of universes) cannot contain him.” It is literally true that God is all and in all. But even that is not all of God. The Infinite can be finally revealed only in infinity; the cause can never be fully comprehended by an analysis of effects; the living God is immeasurably greater than the sum total of creation that has come into being as a result of the creative acts of his unfettered free will. God is revealed throughout the cosmos, but the cosmos can never contain or encompass the entirety of the infinity of God.


    ~*~*~

    4. GOD'S LIMITLESSNESS

    3:4.5 To the mortals of time there is a future, but God inhabits eternity. Even though I hail from near the very abiding place of Deity, I cannot presume to speak with perfection of understanding concerning the infinity of many of the divine attributes. Infinity of mind alone can fully comprehend infinity of existence and eternity of action.

    3:4.6 Mortal man cannot possibly know the infinitude of the heavenly Father. Finite mind cannot think through such an absolute truth or fact. But this same finite human being can actually feel—literally experience—the full and undiminished impact of such an infinite Father's LOVE. Such a love can be truly experienced, albeit while quality of experience is unlimited, quantity of such an experience is strictly limited by the human capacity for spiritual receptivity and by the associated capacity to love the Father in return.

    3:4.7 Finite appreciation of infinite qualities far transcends the logically limited capacities of the creature because of the fact that mortal man is made in the image of God—there lives within him a fragment of infinity. Therefore man's nearest and dearest approach to God is by and through love, for God is love. And all of such a unique relationship is an actual experience in cosmic sociology, the Creator-creature relationship—the Father-child affection.

    I'm EXTREMELY happy to see the "UFO Cultist" Caino has been banned for a bit. He and Freelight are a couple of Blasphemers who shouldn't have access to a Christian forum.

    Knowing jesus brings unlimited joy. You denying God's word limits knowledge.
    The Urantia Book proclaims a different God, a different Jesus, and a different Gospel than the Bible. Its message, allegedly revealed by higher spiritual beings, is fundamentally at odds with biblical Christianity. In light of this, it's sobering to think of all the biblical warnings about lying and deceptive spirits (e.g. 1 Kings 22:22-23; John 8:44; 1 Tim. 4:1; Rev. 20:7-10).

    The record of Jesus is more vast and extensive in the UB than what is found in the NT,....it devotes much more time to Jesus, so not sure how this somehow equates that a reader of the book would not know Jesus?

    There is One Universal Father who is the First Source and Center of all creation, all that is. One Supreme Deity, whith a hierarchy of cosmic beings, divine Sons and angels that extend thru-out the habitable cosmos,....with outer space regions still potent for future creations, worlds without number. The papers describe this wonderful divine hierarchy and cosmology of creation in great detail.

    The gospel (good news of the kingdom) of Jesus in Part 4 is clearly proclaimed for the benefit of all, revealing all men to be sons of God and having them into into a 'faith-relationship' with God, a spiritual rebirth whereby their sonship is lived out as a citizen of God's kingdom. Very basic fundamental truths also revealed in the NT, resting upon the foundational truth of the Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of Man. Jesus truly came to reveal God, which is clearly revealed in the papers.

    I don't agree that any book to be the ultimate final word because none could contain the information about the Divine Conscience that started it all, the problem with the UB or the Bible is when they are interpreted as Jesus being a singular person/persona which misses the point of the message, not to be a respecter of persons is a command few heed when reading about a lead character in either of them, instead they cause divisions where there are none seeing all life came from the same Mind that is all things to all peoples.
