This is the second episode in a segué from "the religion papers" which fall in the heart of The Urantia Revelation. After reading Jesus' Discourse on True Religion from Paper 155 §5 of The Urantia Book, we read The Second Discourse on Religion where Jesus more fully expounds on his first discourse, hours before. Jesus contrasts "authoritative" religion and its bondage as a religion of creedal belief with the liberty in sonship that living faith in the Master's gospel of personal relationship with the Father vouchsafes all who have the courage to pursue such living personal religion.

Jesus said:

"Our Father did indeed speak through Moses, Elijah, Isaiah, Amos, and Hosea, but he did not cease to minister words of truth to the world when these prophets of old made an end of their utterances. My Father is no respecter of races or generations in that the word of truth is vouchsafed one age and withheld from another."  (1730.6) 155:6.2

"I have called upon you to be born again, to be born of the spirit. I have called you out of the darkness of authority and the lethargy of tradition into the transcendent light of the realization of the possibility of making for yourselves the greatest discovery possible for the human soul to make — the supernal experience of finding God for yourself, in yourself, and of yourself, and of doing all this as a fact in your own personal experience.” (1731.1) 155:6.3

"The religion of the mind ties you hopelessly to the past; the religion of the spirit consists in progressive revelation and ever beckons you on toward higher and holier achievements in spiritual ideals and eternal realities." (1731.2) 155:6.4
