After a three-week hiatus where three or more of us were unavailable for one reason or another, we are ready to resume our study of our Heavenly Father—our Good Dad!
This week we start Paper 4—God’s Relation to the Universe, which section that many Urantia students would call a favorite, it covers the "inevitabilities" in Section 5.God's Supreme Rule.
THE Universal Father has an eternal purpose pertaining to the material, intellectual, and spiritual phenomena of the universe of universes, which he is executing throughout all time. ... It is doubtful whether anyone except the Paradise Deities and their highest associates really knows very much about the eternal purpose of God. Even the exalted citizens of Paradise hold very diverse opinions about the nature of the eternal purpose of the Deities. ...
The amazing plan for perfecting evolutionary mortals and, after their attainment of Paradise and the Corps of the Finality, providing further training for some undisclosed future work, does seem to be, at present, one of the chief concerns of the seven superuniverses and their many subdivisions; but this ascension scheme for spiritualizing and training the mortals of time and space is by no means the exclusive occupation of the universe intelligences. 4:0.1,3 (54.1,3)
...There is a providence of divine outworking on your world, but it is not the childish, arbitrary, and material ministry many mortals have conceived it to be.
Can you not advance in your concept of God’s dealing with man to that level where you recognize that the watchword of the universe is progress? ... Throughout all these millenniums Providence has been working out the plan of progressive evolution. The two thoughts are not opposed in practice, only in man’s mistaken concepts. 4:1.1,2 (54.4,5)
