This week we continue our study of Urantia Paper 6, The Eternal Son, by reading and discussing Section 4, Attributes of the Eternal Son. So far in this study, we've reviewed the Eternal Son's identity and nature as well as the Father's ministry. But there is much more to be discovered about The Second Source and Center of Creation. This week we'll be exploring the Eternal Son as a co-equal and co-eternal with the Father who shares God's omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence. He is also the personal source of the universal gravity circuit of spirit. In addition, we'll learn that the Eternal Son is infinite in love, graciousness, patience, and understanding. He is always accessible to all who seek him and desire to know him. He is friendly and approachable, but also majestic and divine. He is the eternal friend and father of all who love truth and righteousness. Consider these marvelous statements from Section 4: 6:4.7.The Original Son is universally and spiritually self-conscious. In wisdom the Son is the full equal of the Father. In the realms of knowledge, omniscience, we cannot distinguish between the First and Second Sources; like the Father, the Son knows all; he is never surprised by any universe event; he comprehends the end from the beginning. 6:4.8.The Father and the Son really know the number and whereabouts of all the spirits and spiritualized beings in the universe of universes. Not only does the Son know all things by virtue of his own omnipresent spirit, but the Son, equally with the Father and the Conjoint Actor, is fully cognizant of the vast reflectivity intelligence of the Supreme Being, which intelligence is at all times aware of all things that transpire on all the worlds of the seven superuniverses. And there are other ways in which the Paradise Son is omniscient. We hope you will join us for another deep dive into The Urantia Papers!
