The authors do talk about creating new slogans for a benign cult, one based in Jesus' teachings. Based on those quotes, a few readers have already started a "Spiritual Fellowship", presumably to get out in front.`
Jesus came to bring us the good news that God is our Father and all men our brothers, but the bottom line is that to fulfill his will and that of our Father, He brought the Religion of the Spirit for all humanity, for all beings who wish to do the Father's Will.
(1629.5) 145:2.4 ... As a group, you are indeed the children of Israel, but as individuals, each one of you is a child of God. I have come, not to reveal the Father to the children of Israel, but rather to bring this knowledge of God and the revelation of his love and mercy to the individual believer as a genuine personal experience. The prophets have all taught you that Yahweh cares for his people, that God loves Israel. But I have come among you to proclaim a greater truth, one which many of the later prophets also grasped, that God loves you — every one of you — as individuals. All these generations have you had a national or racial religion; now have I come to give you a personal religion.
(1630.1) 145:2.5 “But even this is not a new idea. Many of the spiritually minded among you have known this truth, inasmuch as some of the prophets have so instructed you.
He came to proclaim a new religion,which is not a religion how today it given to this meaning , but a personal religion based directly in the fellowship with our spirit.
(1729.7) 155:5.12 ... a religion which is not a religion in the present-day meaning of that word, a religion that makes its chief appeal to the divine spirit of my Father which resides in the mind of man; a religion which shall derive its authority from the fruits of its acceptance that will so certainly appear in the personal experience of all who really and truly become believers in the truths of this higher spiritual communion.”
For that has been us delivered the Fifth Revelation: The Urantia Book
To give us the opportunity to know true teachings, but not to become a new religion, because it would be back against its own teachings.I think it would be like not having understood once the mandate of Jesus
The most of which are still waiting.
(1630.4) 145:2.8 “No more should you fear that God will punish a nation for the sin of an individual; neither will the Father in heaven punish one of his believing children for the sins of a nation, albeit the individual member of any family must often suffer the material consequences of family mistakes and group transgressions. Do you not realize that the hope of a better nation — or a better world — is bound up in the progress and enlightenment of the individual?”
