This week André, Chuck, and Pam read and discuss Urantia Paper 4. God's Relation to the Universe§4, The Realization of God and, perhaps, §5, Erroneous Ideas of God.

In this section we will learn about the immutability of God’s nature and character and that he does not change in his essence, attributes, or will.

Since God is self-existent, he is absolutely independent. The very identity of God is inimical to change. “I, the Lord, change not.” God is immutable; but not until you achieve Paradise status can you even begin to understand how God can pass from simplicity to complexity, from identity to variation, from quiescence to motion, from infinity to finitude, from the divine to the human, and from unity to duality and triunity. And God can thus modify the manifestations of his absoluteness because divine immutability does not imply immobility; God has will — he is will.

T]here are no limits to [God's] universe reactions save those which are self-imposed, and his freewill acts are conditioned only by those divine qualities and perfect attributes which inherently characterize his eternal nature. Therefore is God related to the universe as the being of final goodness plus a free will of creative infinity. 

In God the Father, ...divine personality is ... consisting in spirit and manifesting himself to the universes as love. [I]n all his personal relations with the creature personalities of the universes, the First Source and Center is always and consistently a loving Father. God is a Father in the highest sense of the term. He is eternally motivated by the perfect idealism of divine love, and that tender nature finds its strongest expression and greatest satisfaction in loving and being loved. 4:4.2, 3, 6 (58.7, 8; 59.2)
