The Real Truth
on 12 August 2011
Have you ever thought that the idea of a loving all merciful God was a great idea, but that the various religious doctrines turned you off? Have you thought that much of the contents of the Bible and Koran is just not up to scratch for today's world? And what about the other religions, Hindu, Taoism, Shinto, etc... If there were truly an omniscient, omnipresent Deity, then why would he/she put up with all the errors, and all the misguided and perverted religious prejudices that abound?
The answer is to read The Urantia Book. This is a work authored by a compilation of spiritual beings, angels if you will, who asked for and were given authorization to complete this tome of 1096 pages; a veritable feast for genuine Truth-Seekers everywhere. The exact techniques as to how these revelatory papers were commissioned and put into print has spawned another industry, but the positively overwhelming conclusion of most of those who have read and studied The Urantia Book, is that this book is an official communication from intelligent life outside our local solar system and from the planetary angels still here on Earth. Urantia is the local universe name of our planet, and Nebadon is the name of our local universe. Details of the creditable reason (i.e. The Lucifer Rebellion) are revealed as to why our world has been cut off from normal universe circuits of communication; and for how long we have been - and can further expect to remain - in quarantine.
To accept this book for what it claims to be, ie the Fifth Epochal Revelation, one has to consult one's conscience with a view to favoring the influence of the Spirit of Truth. If you are interested in historical truths about Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden and the evolution of Man, the Lucifer Rebellion and the downfall of Man; and if you are interested to learn more about the Universe and God's participation in his creation, then The Urantia Book will tickle you pink. "Your short sojourn on Urantia [Earth] - is only a single link, the very first in the long chain that is to stretch across universes and through the eternal ages." The Urantia Book, (39:4.13 )
After we die there is an eternal new adventure in store. The Urantia Book gives a preview of how you can expect your universal career to unfold as you progress ever upwards and inwards, as you traverse seven super-universes to the very center of creation and to Paradise, the infinite dwelling place of God the Father.
If you are interested in the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, and would like to know what happened in the so-called "missing years"; if you have a love for the Master or just a fascination for his character; if you have a yearning to know exactly what he taught without the Bible misquotes due to the writer's memory lapses or inaccurate language translations, then read Part IV, the last part of the revelation. There you will find a wonderful account of Jesus of Nazareth which accurately surpasses any other in writing today.
Also The Urantia Book discloses the full narrative of Jesus' betrayal by Judas Iscariot, the real reason for his crucifixion and his traumatic death; and it dispels the accepted argument that he was 'sacrificed' and that his 'blood was shed for our redemption.'
"Though it is hardly proper to speak of Jesus as a sacrificer, a ransomer, or a redeemer, it is wholly correct to refer to him as a saviour. He forever made the way of salvation (survival) more clear and certain; he did better and more surely show the way of salvation for all mortals of all the worlds of the universe of Nebadon." p2017
Many Christians will balk at the number of revelations which directly contradict entrenched beliefs which stem from the Holy Bible, but as The Urantia Book states on page 1732, "You must cease to seek for the word of God only on the pages of the olden records of theologic authority. Those who are born of the spirit of God shall henceforth discern the word of God regardless of whence it appears to take origin. Divine truth must not be discounted because the channel of its bestowal is apparently human." Religion cannot be bestowed, received, loaned, learned, or lost. It is a personal experience which grows proportionally to the growing quest for final values.
The Urantia Book is destined to be found in every household on Earth one distant day in the future. It provides the documentary road map to bring the nations, the countries, the peoples and the families under one umbrella of the Love of God and Brotherhood of Man.
