I have studied the Urantia Book since I was twelve, I am forty something
now. Were it not for this text I might never have found a way
to believe in God. I was questioning everything and looking for
some answers that made sense. At first it appeared to be some
well thought out Christian "propaganda" to me. It took
me a while to realize that it does not hesitate to contradict
the beliefs of Christian doctrine. For instance, the Urantia Book
is very clear on the issue of sacrifice in the temple. It made
Jesus weep. He wept to see men slaughtering living creatures to
atone for their sins. He wished that they could just accept God's
love and his understanding. The book is careful to point out that
Paul only wrote that doctrine to sway those of Jewish faith. They
explain that it is his attempt to win the very people that the
Lord had loved so much. I had discovered a new Jesus! One that
lived in strength and died with honor: not as a sacrifice but
as a servant of God and man. When we called for his death his
heart was broken. He lived the same life as nearly every servant
of God before him, he did not request any thing else.
This book formed a foundation in both my library and my mind. I could now read the Bible with far more depth and understanding. The bible seems to agree with the Urantia book as I get more in to the original languages and more accurate translations. After a while I had absorbed the U-book and started contemplating about the things that it did not discuss., like astral planes and fields, chakras, crystals etc. It said that it could not reveal everything in this text, we were not yet ready to understand these things. The book was channeled from approx. 1935-1955.
In 1970 came the Keys
of Enoch. like the long awaited sequel!
