This week we begin our study of Urantia Paper 3—The Attributes of God. We will read and discuss §1: God's Everywhereness.
GOD is everywhere present; the Universal Father rules the circle of eternity. But he rules in the local universes in the persons of his Paradise Creator Sons, even as he bestows life through these Sons. “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Sons.” These Creator Sons of God are the personal expression of himself in the sectors of time and to the children of the whirling planets of the evolving universes of space. 3:0.1 (44.1)
Creatorship is hardly an attribute of God; it is rather the aggregate of his acting nature. ...We sincerely doubt whether any one characteristic of the divine nature can be regarded as being antecedent to the others, but if such were the case, then the creatorship nature of Deity would take precedence over all other natures, activities, and attributes. And the creatorship of Deity culminates in the universal truth of the Fatherhood of God. 3:0.3 (44.3)
The ability of the Universal Father to be everywhere present, and at the same time, constitutes his omnipresence. God alone can be in two places, in numberless places, at the same time. ... 3:1.1 (44.4)
...The Universal Father is all the time present in all parts and in all hearts of his far-flung creation. ... The Infinite can be finally revealed only in infinity; the cause can never be fully comprehended by an analysis of effects; the living God is immeasurably greater than the sum total of creation... 3:1.2 (44.5)
The fluctuations of the Father’s presence are not due to the changeableness of God. The Father does not retire in seclusion because he has been slighted; his affections are not alienated because of the creature’s wrongdoing. 3:1.12 (46.4)
