This is the first episode in a segué from "the religion papers" which fall in the heart of The Urantia Revelation. This was religion from a Melchizedek viewpoint full of insights. Jesus' Discourse on True Religion from Paper 155 §5 of The Urantia Book is one of the seminal treatises on religion on our world.  Jesus discourse to his apostles contextualizes personal religious experience with primitive and "authoritative" religion.  He develops an evolutionary viewpoint in the mids of his apostles.

Here is just some of what Jesus says to the apostles and to us today:

Until the human race progresses to the level of a higher and more general recognition of the realities of spiritual experience, large numbers of men and women will continue to show a personal preference for those religions of authority which require only intellectual assent, in contrast to the religion of the spirit, which entails active participation of mind and soul in the faith adventure of grappling with the rigorous realities of progressive human experience.  (1729.3) 155:5.8

And Jesus went on to say: “...And now are we about to enter upon a deadly conflict with such a religion since we will so shortly begin the bold proclamation of a new religion — 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.” (1729.7) 155:5.12

Call in, let's talk.  Tune in for some GOOD NEWS that Jesus willingly shared with us!
