The author(s) channeled evil spirits to write them.
As always: the UB is in glaring contradiction of the Holy Scriptures. :duh:“While it is necessary that I go to the Father, it was not required that one of you should become a traitor to fulfill the Father’s will. This is the coming to fruit of the concealed evil in the heart of one who failed to love the truth with his whole soul. How deceitful is the intellectual pride that precedes the spiritual downfall! My friend of many years, who even now eats my bread, will be willing to betray me, even as he now dips his hand with me in the dish.” UB 179 4.2
The obvious demonic Urantia Book calls The Holy Spirit: "the Thought Adjuster," making God into a divine puppet-master. That's how Satan operates: manipulation. It's how psychopaths operate. Not God. He is Truth. His Presence causes us to recognize Truth and to know Him. The Holy Spirit ensures us of the Truths found in His Word. He doesn't need to 'adjust' thought, He lets us choose our own thoughts and decide who is true. He doesn't want puppets, He wants us to love Him and trust that He is faithful to His Word, in spite of our circumstances.
Calling Jesus, Who is the Creator of the Universe: "Michael," attempts to belittle Him and make Him equal with angels. Again: obvious bunk. Urantia is demonically inspired, clearly. A cursory glimpse at even a single premise stated in it makes it painfully obvious. Being deceived by it is proof that there is no Truth in you.
The Urantia teachings which are diametrically opposed to these two simple Truths:
ought to be enough proof to anyone who is able to reason that the inspiration of this blasphemy is NOT from above. The evidence is overwhelming. If you deny it, you're anathema.
- God's Sprit is NOT a 'thought-adjuster' but a helper, comforter and encouragement to the Living Word of God, and;
- Christ is Creator, not a created being (angel);
Jesus Christ: the same, yesterday, today and forever. Your beloved UB changes His position and authority making Him less than Saviour and Lord and is pure heresy. Scripture is Truth, UB is bunk. It's plain for any Christian to see, which is why the UB has so few followers.Hi, its been awhile - popped back in, for a little bit of dialogue and commentary, - those interested in the UB can begin with the OP and read on through this entire large thread of already covered subjects, - research what you will, and let your own conscience, reason, intelligence and divine inspiration guide,...thats how one moves forward, continuing to learn or unlearn whatever the case may be. All stories, legends, myths, personalities are subject to questioning within any given context or narrative, and religious stories, heresay and theological concepts are debatable.
5:4.14 It must therefore be evident that composite Christian theology encounters great difficulty in attaining consistency. This difficulty is further aggravated by the fact that the doctrines of early Christianity were generally based on the personal religious experience of three different persons: Philo of Alexandria, Jesus of Nazareth, and Paul of Tarsus.1. The Hebrew concept—God as a vindicator of moral values, a righteous God.
2. The Greek concept—God as a unifier, a God of wisdom.
3. Jesus' concept—God as a living friend, a loving Father, the divine presence.
