In The Urantia Book 54.6.6, it reads: At first the Lucifer upheaval appeared to be an unmitigated calamity to the system and to the universe. Gradually benefits began to accrue. With the passing of twenty-five thousand years of system time (twenty thousand years of Urantia time), the Melchizedeks began to teach that the good resulting from Lucifer's folly had come to equal the evil incurred. The sum of evil had by that time become almost stationary, continuing to increase only on certain isolated worlds, while the beneficial repercussions continued to multiply and extend out through the universe and superuniverse, even to Havona. The Melchizedeks now teach that the good resulting from the Satania rebellion is more than a thousand times the sum of all the evil.


Now that the calamity of the supreme has taken place I know that the Melchizedeks and all of the celestial hosts have been busy but I wonder if they have had time to get their calculators out and if their calculations today would be anything near this optimistic? Spirit and all of our celestial family remind me of my earthly father who was always optimistic. May we always have a spirit of optimism too.

General Discussion / Universal Father personal communications
« on: August 25, 2022, 03:59:11 pm »
I have a question about the following from The Urantia Book, paper 2.


2.1.6 The Universal Father is absolutely and without qualification infinite in all his attributes; and this fact, in and of itself, automatically shuts him off from all direct personal communication with finite material beings and other lowly created intelligences.


My question is: We often hear the Universal Father transmitted in our Light Lines, or in posted transmissions, and Ron references communication with Him at other times as well. Did this used to be true but is now changed due to the New Universe Age or is there some other nuance I'm missing?

General Discussion / Learning
« on: August 08, 2022, 12:59:09 pm »
It seems that many people on Urantia have little to no interest in learning new ideas/truths/concepts. This is true, especially for those who love God and consider themselves religious. It is clear from The Urantia Book that our morontial life will be filled with learning and that our material life should be as well. Assuming that most of these people will find themselves on the morontial worlds; will they there learn how to learn again or will they decide loving God isn't worth the trouble? I guess what I'm trying to ask is, is there remedial assistance on the mansion worlds for those with learning difficulties or disinterest in learning or who think they are incapable of deep learning.

General Discussion / The Next Part of God's Plan is Written

I found this article in the paper this morning. I'm not sure if the link will work for you but I found it both timely and interesting and it helps explain the chaos spirit anticipates when Jesus returns.
