Why do we suffer? Why do we have conflict?

This week we invite you to call in and explore with us these timeless questions. Have you ever questioned why bad things happen to good people? Have you ever wondered why there is so much confusion and conflict in the world? Is all this affliction we experience necessary? If God exists, why does he allow it?

The Urantia Book offers some thought provoking answers. The phones are wide open for this segment so we hope you will call in.

100:4.2   Religious perplexities are inevitable; there can be no growth without psychic conflict and spiritual agitation. The organization of a philosophic standard of living entails considerable commotion in the philosophic realms of the mind. Loyalties are not exercised in behalf of the great, the good, the true, and the noble without a struggle. Effort is attendant upon clarification of spiritual vision and enhancement of cosmic insight. And the human intellect protests against being weaned from subsisting upon the nonspiritual energies of temporal existence. The slothful animal mind rebels at the effort required to wrestle with cosmic problem solving.

Let's talk . Call with your thoughts on this and other teachings that deal with suffering and affliction.

The Cosmic Citizen is a show for progressive religionists and spiritual people who are ready to find a spirituality worthy of an age of science and enlightenment. Our two hosts, Paula Thompson and Christilyn Biek-Larson are both are long time students of The Urantia Book.
