For the past three weeks, we have been engaged in a study of The Nature of Cultism, with our good friend and regular caller, Marvin Gawryn. This study is focused on Section 7 of Urantia Paper 87, The Ghost Cults—one facet of a decades-long study Marvin has pursued.

We have read, Section 7, The Nature of Cultism, from Urantia Paper 87, and pondered terms like "masterful mystery" and "worthful unattainable" and words like "cult," "symbols" and "symbolism." 

The last three episodes have setup inter-connected topics, that are part of a larger whole. They are like a great chamber that can be entered through a number of doorways. This week we may ponder the following:

  • How can we best understand, conceptualize, the core spiritual truths of the gospel?  Jesus original gospel, and the up-stepped core spiritual truths of the UB? 
  • How can we best retain them in our awareness and put them into practice, shape our lives around them (spiritual formation)?
  • How can we form effective spiritual community, and a strong spiritual culture around these core truths?
  •  How can we best share these soul-saving truths with the countless spiritually hungry sisters and brothers in our modern culture? 
  • How can we best contribute to the evolution of the next higher stage of human civilization?

"Regardless of the drawbacks and handicaps, every new revelation of truth has given rise to a new cult...and even the restatement of the religion of Jesus must develop a new and appropriate symbolism." (87:7.6)

Marvin Gawryn has created the following comprehensive course for Urantia University Inc: A Way of Life in the Family of God: A Course in Spiritual Formation, set to run from Sept 21 - Nov 23. This study on the Cosmic Citizen, is in a way, a promo and precursor to that course.
