This week we continue our study of The Lucifer Rebellion and how self-assertion came to dominate the conduct of our world. “Self-assertion was the battle cry of the Lucifer rebellion.” [53:4.2] "He contended that 'majorities rule,' that 'mind is infallible.'” [53:4.4] "Lucifer was permitted fully to establish and thoroughly to organize his rebel government before Gabriel made any effort to contest the right of secession or to counterwork the rebel propaganda." [53:4.7]
The influences of rebellion still leave a mark on this planet. Everyday we are presented with the choice of self-assertion or selfless service. According to the Urantia Book we on this planet are to be called Agondonters - those who believe without seeing. It takes a rare type of human to thrive on this rebellion-seared planet.
"Christ Michael now has ample power and authority to deal promptly, even summarily, with such outbreaks of disloyalty, but we doubt that this sovereign authority would lead him to act differently if another such upheaval should occur.?" [53:5.3] This raises the question in any reflective person: Why does God not interfere with evil when it appears in the world?
We'll explore the scope of the rebellion and discuss how loyalty stands out: "The Lucifer rebellion was system wide. Thirty-seven seceding Planetary Princes swung their world administrations largely to the side of the archrebel. Only on Panoptia did the Planetary Prince fail to carry his people with him." [53:7.1]
