 Re: Cult: Urantia Book


It is amazing from the contents that Jesus is preached boldly but as a different Jesus and that the character of God is portrayed as only love:

Nature of God
According to The Urantia Book, God is the creator and upholder of all reality[36]—an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, infinite, and eternal spirit personality.[37] The most fundamental teaching about God in the book is that he is a Father.[38][39] "The face which the Infinite turns toward all universe personalities is the face of a Father, the Universal Father of love."[40]

---


The Urantia Book is 2,097 pages long and consists of an introductory foreword followed by 196 "papers" divided into four parts:
Part I, titled "The Central and Superuniverse", addresses what the authors consider the highest levels of creation, including the eternal and infinite "Universal Father," his Trinity associates, and the "Isle of Paradise."
Part II, "The Local Universe", describes the origin, administration and personalities of the local universe of "Nebadon," the part of the cosmos where Earth resides. It presents narratives on the inhabitants of local universes and their work as it is coordinated with a scheme of spiritual ascension and progression of different orders of beings, including humans, angels, and others.
Part III, "The History of Urantia", compiles a broad history of the Earth, presenting a purported explanation of the origin, evolution and destiny of the world and its inhabitants. Topics include Adam and Eve, Melchizedek, essays on the concept of the Thought Adjuster, "Religion in Human Experience," and "Personality Survival."
Part IV, "The Life and Teachings of Jesus", is the largest part at 775 pages, and is often noted as the most accessible[34] and most impressive,[35] narrating a detailed biography of Jesus that includes his childhood, teenage years, family life, public ministry, as well as the events that led to his crucifixion, death, and resurrection. It continues with papers about appearances after he rose, Pentecost, and finally, "The Faith of Jesus."

 Re:

Also a great deception apart of the blood of Christ and coming eternal judgment of only those who are in Jesus Christ and covered by His blood will be saved:

The final paper states:[49]
To "follow Jesus" means to personally share his religious faith and to enter into the spirit of the Master's life of unselfish service for man. One of the most important things in human living is to find out what Jesus believed, to discover his ideals, and to strive for the achievement of his exalted life purpose. Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it.

This fast growing cult is considered a "new age", UFO cult. It is based on a book called the "Urantia" book. The word "Urantia" is allegedly an ancient name for the Earth. This cult is also known as the "Urantia Society", "Urantia Foundation", "Urantia Fellowship" and the "Urantia Brotherhood". Like other cults that claim extra-Biblical revelations, it is claimed that the Urantia book compliments the Bible, and that Christians should not be wary of it. But in reality, the Urantia book is in direct conflict with the Bible on many important doctrines, including the most important one which is the issue of salvation from eternal damnation in Hell through faith in Jesus Christ.

This is a good website exposing the cult teachings: http://creationists.org/cults-urantia.html
