This week we come to the end of our study of Paper 100, Religion in Human Experience, which is doubtless one of the most amazing papers in The Urantia Book. So far, we've covered 1.Religious Growth, 2.Spiritual Growth, 3.Concepts of Supreme Value, 4.Problems of Growth, 5.Conversion and Mysticism, and 6.Marks of Religious Living. But now, we come to Melchizedek's capstone of this remarkable paper, with Section 7.The Acme of Religious Living. Can you guess who Melchizedek offers as a prime example of The Acme of Religious Living? If you said JESUS, you're correct!

Yes, Jesus was and is The Acme of Religious Living and in this day and age we really need his exquisite example of majestic poise and matchless symmetry of personality. So, we're dedicating this week to Section 7 from Paper 100, and rather than go on to Paper 101, which we will begin next week, we also plan to read another equally beautiful Section 7 from Paper 171, As Jesus Passed By. These two sections are the perfect tribute to Jesus, who he was and who he is and who he always will be.

Regulars, Andre Radatus and Marvin Gawryn, will be attending a Urantia University board meeting this week, so Derek Samaras and Jeremy Daigle have agreed to join Chuck and Paula for these wonderful readings on the sublime character of Jesus.

Here's a taste:

"The unfailing kindness of Jesus touched the hearts of men, but his stalwart strength of character amazed his followers. He was truly sincere; there was nothing of the hypocrite in him. He was free from affectation; he was always so refreshingly genuine."

"Jesus could help men so much because he loved them so sincerely. He truly loved each man, each woman, and each child.... He was an expert in the comprehension of human need, clever in detecting human longings.

If you love Jesus, this episode is bound to be a feast for your soul so please tune in!
