The men from West Jackson Baptist Church, Jim and Paul, were giving bibles away next to us and we became good friends. They were open to our presence, but did not ask questions about the Urantia Book. We made it clear that we hoped that everyone would want a bible and would take it home and read it.
They probably gave away forty to fifty bibles and other materials.
I think Steve Law has found a good technique for sharing the knowledge he has found in the UB, which he does at a local farmer’s market.
Here is my guiding quote on this matter of sharing the book and its teachings: You will work your way through the ascending levels of this vast experiential university by imparting to those just below you the new-found knowledge of your advancing career. In the universal regime you are not reckoned as having possessed yourself of knowledge and truth until you have demonstrated your ability and your willingness to impart this knowledge and truth to others.
I like what Rodan said on this topic as well, “If something has become a religion in your experience, it is self-evident that you already have become an active evangel of that religion since you deem the supreme concept of your religion as being worthy of the worship of all mankind, all universe intelligences. If you are not a positive and missionary evangel of your religion, you are self-deceived in that what you call a religion is only a traditional belief or a mere system of intellectual philosophy.”
All I can say is, “Bravo!” to anyone who steps up to share the idea with other human beings that a revelation of truth, from a friendly and well-ordered universe, is here and is real.
Always, Jesus’ invitation was, “Whosoever will, let him come.” Whosoever will can’t come, if there is nowhere for him to come to.
Love…. Paula Thompson
