Another interesting similarity between the Urantia Book and Catholic doctrine is on the afterlife. One can interpret purgatory, rather than as a form of punishment, as a period of purification and spiritual development before attaining the Father in Paradise, just as the Urantia Book teaches about the mansion worlds.

Whenever the Urantia Book is in apparent conflict with my Catholic faith, I trust in the Spirit of Truth to help me reconcile the two. When I am at mass singing, praying, or quietly contemplating, I am often thinking of spiritual concepts that I've learned from the Urantia Book.

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience. -

It's interesting to note that, according to this survey, there are more Urantia Book readers who were raised Catholic than Protestant:
