This week we continue our study of Urantia Paper 2 - The Nature of God. We are on Section 4: The Divine Mercy and we hope to get to Section 5. The Love of God.
So far, our study has taught us that our understanding of God, and his nature, is handicapped because our minds are limited. It reveals that the best way to understand the nature of God is by knowing the life and teachings of Jesus. Also, that God is inherently kind, compassionate and merciful. It is never necessary to persuade him to love us; our need is wholly sufficient to insure the flow of his grace. In addition, we've learned that God's justice is tempered with mercy.
As we go deeper into this amazing paper, we'll discover that everything good comes from God and that LOVE is the dominant characteristic of God's personality. God guides us, step by step, life by life, until we stand in his very presence. He literally sends his spirit to live and toil with us as we pursue the eternal universe career. The Urantia Book reveals the real goodness of God. He is our eternal refuge. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up the wounds of the soul.
It has been said that God loves sinners but hates sin. It is true that God loves sinners, but he has no attitude toward sin because sin is not a spiritual reality. Iniquity is inherently suicidal, because when we cut ourselves off from God, we disconnect from the source of reality, which is what makes us real.
Consider: 2:4.4.Mercy is the natural and inevitable offspring of goodness and love. The good nature of a loving Father could not possibly withhold the wise ministry of mercy to each member of every group of his universe children. Eternal justice and divine mercy together constitute what in human experience would be called fairness.
We hope you can join us this week for another fascinating study of GOD as presented in The Urantia Book!
