The Urantia Papers

Evidently I have too much time on my hands. The other evening I was in deep thought about "Eden" and of course Adam and Eve. I was trying to figure out for my own benefit just how many offspring that they had had and came up with these papers or writings so to speak as if written by an observer. I r...

Re: War

If I told you that we spend 7 billion a week or 364 billion a year on imported oil in this country would that shock you? In 1973 when we had the first national shortage I was actually working at a service station in Rye Neck N.Y.. At the time our country was importing right at 36%. That was not good...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

Thank-you. That has been the reply I have been looking for. Those who have accepted Christ as Lord, Savior and follow His way no matter what denomination are the "choosen ones". We "Choose Him" over everything else. We will be with Him forever.

I don't know either. That's why I asked.

Re: War

Gman, I couldn't agree with you more. I'm afraid though it will be sometime before making war with another will cease. I've commented on it before and until certain countries stop making and selling weapons to other countries for profit it's like a dog chasing it's tail. Don't be surprised when you ...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

Frank,B.W., I do understand exactly what you are talking about. All men worldwide suffer at the hands of their brothers. Cain and Able is a excellant reference point but Cain got to see many more sunsets and rises then Able so where is the justice. Why did G-d not kill Cain where he stood immediatel...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

I believe we are all in agreement on the subject. Using his name in the correct context, telling all of His greatness and power with respect and admiration is exactly what He does want us to do. He is the Holy of the Holies and in this regard we must be very careful not to deface it nor through it a...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

Speaking and writing can be one of the same. They are both forms of communication of what one is thinking, instructing or feeling. If you reference the third commandment this is where you have to take a deeper look and the important meanings of the wording. Communicated in vain if then written and e...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

Adam was considered the one who built the Ka'aba and Abraham along with Ishmael rebuilt it together from the foundation. The first step of stone into the Ka'aba is said to have the imprints of Abraham's feet.The Hykos could be, as it is thought they left Egypt after being expelled from lower Egypt i...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

Yes I do. Islam wasn't a factor in those times. You had different idol worship going on which did include the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and such. The Jews also had there hand in idol worship also which is referenced in the Old Testament. I think the drift of the writings had alot to do with who was ...

Re: Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

F.L., The reasons I do write His name as "G-d" I had explained in a previous discussion so I went ahead and pasted it for you. No I'm not Jewish but came from an area where I grew up that was rich in both Catholic and Jewish custom and we were educated on both religious cultures. Understanding other...

Why Did The Creator Choose the Jews?

This question has bothered me for sometime now. Out of all of mankind why the Jews? They were a very small population on all accounts and had not built great civilizations like the Egyptians, Chinese, Myans. Norse Men and etc.. They were lead out of Egypt but at the time Egypt controlled the land up...

Re: Enoch?

Well I have finished reading it and I must admit I had to go over several chapters every now and then. It was a good read although and went into more detail as far as the "Watchers" and their demise and of course what happened to their offspring. The 2nd dream I thought was very interesting also. If...

Re: War

I believe it would come under both stealing and murder. When anothers life is taken you are in effect taking something that doesn't belong to you. So you are both stealing and commiting the act of murder. This brings up self defense. If you are attacked and someone intends to do serious harm or to t...
