This week is the final section in our study of Paper 1 - The Universal Father, the first source and center of all things. We will be exploring Section 7. Spiritual Value of the Personality Concept!
So far, in this study we've learned that God is a creator, a controller, and an upholder, and that all enlightened beings worship God the Father and have one supreme ambition-to become like him. Also that the enlightened worlds all recognize and worship God as the eternal maker and infinite upholder of all creation. In the starry realms, God has been referred to as First Creative Source and Divine Center, Father of Universes, Divine Controller, Father of Lights, the Gift of Life, the All-powerful One, the Father of Fathers, the Paradise Father, the Havona Father, and the Spirit Father. We are blessed to know God through Jesus, and so often refer to God as "Our Father." We also learned that, "God is a universal spirit; God is the universal person." Also that we humans must strive to yield our mind to the leadings God's indwelling Spirit and discover that God is an eternal power, a majestic presence, and a glorious ideal. He is a perfect personality, a person who can know and be known. A person who can love and be loved. We've learned that God is to science a cause, to philosophy an idea, to religion a person, even the loving heavenly Father. God is to the scientist a primal force, to the philosopher a hypothesis of unity, to the religionist a living spiritual experience.
The Urantia Book presents the most profoundly beautiful teachings on God that have ever been revealed to humanity. It reveals the divine personality of God, our Universal Father, and this week's study on the foundation of Personality as a concept. Whether you believe in the reality of a Universal Creator, or not, we think you will be amazed by these thought provoking discussions!
We hope you can join us!
