A Theological Overview of The Urantia Book
I. The Urantia Book view of revelation
- 1. Epochal revelation is periodic, successive, and evolutionary. Insofar as the indwelling Spirit reveals truth to individuals, revelation
is continuous. [101:2.10]
- 2. Knowledge must be achieved by evolutionary discovery but it is integrated and given spiritual value orientation by revelation. This saves
much time in eliminating the errors and distortions of evolution. [101:4.5]
- 3. Revelation is never too far removed from the thought processes of the age in which it is given. It is rooted solidly in evolutionary foundations.
- 4. Revelation expands and upsteps the religions of evolution. [92:4]
- 5. Revelation co-ordinates and integrates science, philosophy, and religion with the truths of reality. It bridges conceptual deficiencies.
- [101:2.2], [103:7.8]
- 6. Revelation can only be validated by experience. [101:2.4]
- 7. Revelation is never complete until we meet the Universal Father. [92:4.9]
- The Urantia Book should be evaluated by the quality of its truth content, not by its revelatory claims.
- Great religious and spiritual transformations of society have always been the result of transformations at the grass roots level; common people,
hungry for spiritual truth, receive liberating truth gladly. The Urantia Book presents a feast of spiritual truth to a hungry world which
is becoming increasingly disillusioned with its religious institutions.
