Belitsos Part 2
Continuing our discussion about his new book, Byron delves into religion today, how "Open Theism" plays an important role in how we confront evil, and how the Urantia Book offers a lifeline to modern Christianity.
Byron Belitsos on Integral Theodicy and Why God Allows Evil to Exist
In part 1 of our two-part interview, Urantia student and researcher-author Byron Belitsos shares insight on his new book on how, over the past two millennia, great thinkers have attempted to explain why God allows evil to exist. Byron joins us to discuss the points of his latest book, "The Truth About Evil, Sin and the Demonic: Toward an Integral Theodicy."
We look at what Providence means in terms of the growth of the Supreme Being.
The Youth Problem
In this episode, we look at the youth problem and what is happening in our society due to secularism, even to the point where young people are no longer connected to "the inner world" where they learn meanings, values, ethics, and moral character. The revelators warned us what would happen if we don't teach basic truths to our young.
The Need For More Joy
In this episode, we talk about the young generation and the "nones" who have no need for religion and yet are among the hopeless many who suffer from anxiety and general apathy. What does the Urantia Book offer to these people, and what is the value of Joy in life?
Plus, thoughts on Bill Sadler and his contribution to the Urantia Book's early beginnings.
As Jesus Passed By
In honor of Easter Sunday, from Paper 171:8 I read the story of "As Jesus Passed By" and what this God-man was like as he lived among men and women in his day.
It's a short story, but perhaps one you have not heard before.
The Seat Of The Soul
From Paper 49, we learn all about the different kinds of will creatures who evolve on different planets throughout the universe. What makes this even more interesting is the common fact that all will creatures of soul potential have a special gland in their brain that makes our spiritual life even possible, what the Urantia Book calls the "citadel of the mind."
In The Beginning
Part 3 of the Urantia starts with the history of our world, including a brief introduction to the beginnings of the nebula that gave birth to our sun. It's a fascinating trip back into the far reaches of time to witness the creation of Christ Michaels's universe, of which we are a part.
This episode puts into perspective the relative meaning of time, the vastness of space, and the effort that goes into universe-building.
The Search for Modern Prophets
In this episode, we talk about the modern definition of what it means to be a Prophet. Plus, from Paper 111 we discuss the Human Paradox from the perspective of a Guardian Angel.
How I Found The Urantia Book
The moral to this story is: be careful what you ask for from God; you may actually get it!

How Prayer Improves Quality of Thinking
Excited to talk about the power of prayer and how it can improve our thinking and our quality of life overall. The way we pray has evolved over thousands of years, so this is not just about prayer, but how we should pray and commune with God and what that really means.
Totality of God
What Is An Agondonter?
Let's see what it means to be a human on a rebellion seared world in this excursion through Paper 50 from the Urantia Book. Sometimes the least end up being the most, as we learn in this episode...

Note: Forgive the high music volume, it was in the mix...but only lasts a few seconds...
The Next Hundred Years
In a recent episode the UB recounts the early culture of mankind and how we developed our "rule’s of living." In this episode, we look to the future and what awaits mankind if we can improve our quality of thinking and social conduct.

In this episode we look at the Urantia Book story of the first Sabbath and how it happened and why it has been a lasting influence for thousands of years.
About Life On Other Planets
What might life be like on other worlds? Why would there be life on other worlds, what is the purpose?
These questions are answered in the Urantia Book, and a recent article about exo-planets being discovered is squarely addressed on the pages of the Urantia revelation. Let’s explore what life might be like on other worlds, and where we can find them based on clues given to us by the Revelators.
Revelation - The First Hundred Years
The Urantia Revelation actually commenced on February 11, 1923 in Chicago. That is when the Study Group first began to discover an emerging collection of writings which would later become the Urantia Book; 196 individual papers that describe our origins, our history and our destiny as children of a loving spiritual father and Deity whom we call God.
Inside The Urantia Book
From paper 60 I realized just how patient the Most Highs are when it comes to evolutionary life, and it provides a good example of just how revelatory the Urantia Book really is when it comes to disclosing our long history of life on this planet. Let's discuss!
Answering the Call - My Interview with Diane Labrecque
Inside the Urantia Book
My introduction to people who are new or are not familiar with te Urantia book, this brief overview delves into four key questions

Thoughts On the Spirit of God
In this episode we look at the Thuoght Adjusters, the actual spirit fragments from God that resides in each of us, the very spirit that makes it possible for all of us to enjoy fellowship. Plus some early thoughts from a pioneer in the Urantia Book movement.
What Happens When We Die?
We look at Personality, what happens when we die. Using Pope Benedicts passing as our backdrop, we look at Paper 112 on Personality Survival and what awaits each of us when we make that decision to put our faith in the eternal adventure God has planned for us.

We also discuss ways he uses the Urantia Book to help people with anxiety, and also, what drives the Urantia Book reader? why does he or she believe the Urantia book is a revelation and what makes us different?
You can find out more about Gaetan here:
Jesus First Public Speech
In this episode from Paper 137:7 we look back at the first time Jesus makes a public address and tells the people his plan.
The response from the people is quite interesting and calls on us to remember that even the Son of Man wasn't as well-received as we'd like. It's a lesson on spiritual patience.
The Home Life of Adam and Eve
In our first Paper of the Week episode, we choose Paper 74 about the home life of Adam and Eve, what it was like in the Garden of Eden during those first few decades before the default. Life lessons, education and even what it was like for some of the natives who learn about this unique family of advanced mortals are disclosed in sections 7 and 8 of the Urantia Book.

Making Sense Of Evil With Joshua Wilson
While we do focus on the historical aspect of evil (from the UB perspective), there are a great number of contemporary issues we discuss with my guest Joshua Wilson, a long time student of the Urantia Book teachings, an author, educator, musical artist and counselor.
Including is an in-depth discussion on the luciferian doctrines impacting society today.
The Jesus Metaverse, Part 1
What is the Jesus Metaverse? This is about to get real interesting...
Urantia Book readers around the world are part of a project that could have a profound effect on the way people learn about the life and teachings of Jesus in a whole new way.
Joining us to discuss the Jesus Metaverse project are Gabriel Rymberg from Israel, the projects creator, artists Gary Tonge and Lisa Tao from Vancouver, BC, and PR chief Andre Radatus from Denver. Each member explains their role and the unique skill-sets they bring to this global project.
In Part 2 of the series we will delve deeper into the collaborative process and talk with members who are curators of Part 4 of the Urantia Book who create “nodes” which connect all aspects of Jesus life that will allow people to “get to know” Jesus on a whole new level.

If God Is Love What is Evil?
In this episode we take up the subject of Evil as it pertains to contemporary society, and then we look at the excerpt from the Urantia Book from Paper 2 on the topic of God is Love. How can evil be reconciled if God is Love?
The Awesome Power of Divinity
Gabriel Rymberg Is Sharing the Good News (in a big way)
The man who helped translate the Urantia Book into Hebrew is working on a new vision that he hopes will bring the life of Jesus to a whole new generation. Gabriel Rymberg joins us from Israel, where he shares with us his story, and what's behind the Jesus Metaverse project, and much, much more. It's also a candid interview about one man's search for the truth - and finding it, and then doing something with it to help others who may be looking for the same thing.
For more on Gabriel and the various Jesus projects we discuss, plus ways you can help support them: www.JesusMetaverse.org

Be a part of this unprecedented effort. At the end of your days, when you graduate, you will know you’ve been industrious in sharing Jesus with the world.
Joshua Wilson talks Jesus & Current Events
We like Josua because he brings a scope of knowledge to the discussion on how to deal with modern life.
As much as I would like to shy away from politics on this podcast, in today's discussion Joshua and I apply Urantia philosophy in dealing with the social ills facing us.
Project Jesus and The Center for Unity
I am delighted to have Gabriel Rymberg in Israel who formulated the project, along with Santiago Kneeland, Steve Marble, Louis Morales, and Kerri Blache, AND Rick Lyon, all of whom are also students of the Urantia book, and each playing a significant part of the Center for Unity project.

It’s a fascinating conversation about the Urantia Book teachings and progress being made in dealing with mental illness through a spiritual approach.
What Makes The Urantia Book Unique
Also, from Paper 155, Jesus speaks to his Apostles about becoming 'born again' what his teachings mean to the world moving forward, from the Second Discourse on Religion and how true religion is not merely an intellectual belief, but rather, a living experience of God consciousness.
Urantia Science with Dr. Philip Calabrese
In this fascinating hour-long interview with Dr. Philip Calabrese, former professor of Mathematics at University of California at San Diego, Dr Calabrese shares his love and fascination of the Urantia Book, and how he believes its revelatory information can assist current scientists in gaining a better understanding of the physical universe.
We talk about the futility and inconsistency of the Big Bang and why science continues to stick with it, how energy functions, what Andromeda tells us about our own universe, plus his ideas on space and time which are contradictory to current scientific theory.

In this episode, my guest Joel Garbon, fellow Urantia Book student and engineering science specialist, joins me to discuss how the Urantia Book explains the legends of ancient aliens and superior beings in man's long and mysterious past.
If you are a fan of UFOlogy, ancient history and multiverse theory, you will absolutely love to hear what Joel has to say about these subjects and much, much more, including the story of Adam and Eve, and some of the early civilizations who existed long ago.
What Is Truth? (Epilogue to our earlier discussion of Lucifer's impact on modern society)
In this episode we continue our examination of truth as it is viewed today. But how is Truth connected to reality if reality itself is subjective? Is Truth also subjective?
This is epilogue to our earlier discussion of Lucifer's impact on modern society.
The Lucifer Rebellion
In this episode we explore the reasons behind the Lucifer Rebellion against Michael, and the repercussions this event has had, not only on this world, but also on many of our other neighboring worlds who also harbor intelligent life.
It is the first time we have tackled this topic head on, and it provides some insight as to why we are having many problems in the world today, including war, transhumanism and nihilism among our youth in Western civilization.
The Second Coming
As a follow up to the previous podcast where we discussed the Revelation of John, in this episode we discuss, among many things, what a dispensation is, the Second Coming of Christ, and taking Jesus' own instructions from Paper 176, and what “signs” we should look for upon his return.
We also revisit one of Jesus best known parables and how it applies to those who have been giving new a new revelation of truth and what is expected of them, especially in this current age.

Morontia Mota - A Lesson in Spiritual Philosophy
In this segment we share Mota, a type of philosophy we learn from Paper 48 that is used to illuminate spiritual truths to ascending mortals.
In this episode, we discuss an astronomer who describes the discovery of what looks like Edentia, some 1,300 light years away
The discovery fits the description of Edentia, as described in the Urantia Book, as a large sphere 100 times the size of our world with hundreds of smaller sphere's in her orbit.
Let's examine the clues, shall we?
The Thought Adjuster - Perspectives from the late Bill Sadler Jr
In this episode, we share some passages that explains the spirit of God that indwells us, what the Urantia Book calls the Thought Adjuster spirit.

The Angels of the Lord
Who are The Brilliant Evening Stars?
In this podcast we look at this special group of superangels and how they serve the cosmos with their unique abilities.
In our own literature they are depicted as the 'Angels of the Lord, ' but in the Urantia Book we get a much fuller depiction of their origins, purpose and in some cases their destiny as helpers of Gabriel, the Bright and Morning Star who is so much a part of our early religious history.
Interview with Mo Siegel, Urantia Foundation President

Life on Another Planet
As the James Webb telescope leaves our world looking for new life, this episode explores one such planet where we are told life really does exist and is very much like our own. A fascinating journey this time up on the Urantia Radio podcast
The Story of Another Big Bang
What better way to start off the new year than with a big bang, Urantia Book-style.
In this first episode of the new year, we look at the Urantia Books' description of how our universe came to be (Nebadon). This is a version of creation you won’t hear anywhere else, but it gives us pause to how the universe originated, and with the launch of a new ultra sensitive telescope (James Webb Star Telescope), perhaps JWST will be able to validate this incredible story by revealing just how big our creation really is, featured this time up on the Urantia Audio podcast.
Space - The Final Frontier
In the episode we talk about the James Webb telescope and what it means for our future. Interesting facts about this new venture that could confirm the Urantia Book narrative of creation itself.

Thanks to Byon for appearing. Please not this is a five year interview so some of the information might be a little dated.
In this episode we examine the current age and ask, is this what a tribulation looks like? Could this be it? Are we in a time where we have to decide between liberty and tyranny. What does Jesus offer in this regard, and what does the UB say about such a test of faith.
It's a discussion that has many interesting facets in this edition of the Urantia Radio Podcast

Jesus Spoke About True Religion
From Paper 155 when Jesus spoke to Apostles and his Disciples about the difference between the religion of tradition and the spirit-led life.
Where did this book come from?
How did we end up with an epochal revelation? Was it a book that had gold plates found under a tree? Was there an Angel that delivered to us ? Or was some mysterious man channeling the gods? No, no. None of that. The story is actually quite interesting, but also non-spectacular, just the way Gabriel wanted it to be. Follow us and support us on UrantiaRadio.net or n Twitter @UrantiaRadio
Dr. Philip Calabrese - Urantia Science Prophecy

10 Best Places to Start Reading the Urantia Papers
These are great sections of the Urantia book that mostly anyone can read that would get them interested if they are into knowing this kind of revelatory information.
1 - Paper 1, section 1 The Father's Name.
However, this might by overly religious for many people who aren’t quite prepared to take the big step. Approach with caution.
2. Paper 62:6 and 7 - Planetary Mortal Epochs
This is good for people who love history and can comprehend some level of evolutionary progression as being the 'end game' of the human species.
3 - Paper 63 - The First Human family
There is a ring of truth to this paper. Even if you never read another paper you will have felt as if you have had a glimpse into the very first human life of two people who are really, our parents.
4 - Paper 74 - Adam and Eve
Most people are familiar with the story so it is a good entry point. It happened to be the first paper I read and it convinced me to buy the book.
5 - Paper 84 - Marriage and Family Life
You really get a rich appreciation of how hard things really were back then. There is a such a ring of credibility from this paper you get the sense who ever wrote them where either there, or had eyewitness accounts. Great insight into early human behavior, nonetheless.
6 - Paper 111 - The Adjuster and the Soul
You really learn a lot about yourself in these papers if you have ever given thought to real meaning in life and your purpose. It will have you thinking for sometime afterward, which makes it all of the more intriguing.
7. Paper 113- Personality Survival
Need I say more?
8. Paper 122:8 - The Star of Bethlehem
We all know the story, but this one can actually be confirmed.
9. Paper 139 - The 12 Apostles
Many have remarked that the description of the Apostles in this paper convinced them of the authenticity of the Urantia Book, even Dr. William Sadler as well as Dr. Meredith Sprunger.
10. Paper 195:5 and 6
To me the most chilling and sober message is contained in these several sections of paper 195. They are both prophetic as well cautionary. If we choose secularism as the primary ideology driving human progress then there will be much pain and suffering..

The Spirit of Truth Discernment - Thank you Jesus
In this heartfelt episode I wanted so much to share with you a recent profound experience I had when thinking about the Spirit of Truth that Jesus gave to humanity after his resurrection. The concept itself is worth exploring on this episode of The Urantia Radio podcast.

A Few Reasons Why (Humanity Has Been Given a Revelation)
I came up with seven possible explanations for why the Revelators decided to provide humanity with an epochal revelation with highly spiritual concepts, historically expansive and revealed new truth, a level of unprecedented philosophical insight never before presented to a humanity that is quite possibly about to enter a dark spiritual age.
Why did they do it?
Let's delve into that question and maybe we can figure out why the Revelators (our unseen spiritual friends) did a 'mic-drop-moment' in the form of a 2,000 page revelation that could change humanity forever.
Trust in Your Pilot
Mind is your ship, the Adjuster is your pilot, the human will is captain.
The master of the mortal vessel should have the wisdom to trust the divine pilot to guide the ascending soul into the morontia harbors of eternal survival.
Only by selfishness, slothfulness, and sinfulness can the will of man reject the guidance of such a loving pilot and eventually wreck the mortal career upon the evil shoals of rejected mercy and upon the rocks of embraced sin.
With your consent, this faithful pilot will safely carry you across the barriers of time and the handicaps of space to the very source of the divine mind and on beyond, even to the Paradise Father of Adjusters (your spirit).
Meaning of the Cross - Examining the Atonement Doctrine in Christianity
Pastor and author Dr. Stephen Finlan joins us to talk about his new book Salvation Not Purchased (Cascade Books) which looks at how the idea of Jesus paying a ransom is actually incompatible with Jesus teachings of love and mercy and true salvation, and why this doctrine has survived as a crucial, yet contradictory part of Christian teachings for over 2,000 years.

What is Mota? A Superior Philosophy
This episode is about a superior philosophy known as Mota, from Paper 48 in the Urantia revelation.
Mota is a form of spiritual philosophy that encompasses the spiritual life that exists within physical creation. In the Morontia life, we will gain Mota insight.
"The highest attainable philosophy of mortal man must be logically based on the reason of science, the faith of religion, and the truth insight afforded by revelation. By this union man can compensate somewhat for his failure to develop an adequate metaphysics and for his inability to comprehend the mota of the morontia." 103:6.15
Immanuel - Ambassador from Paradise
In our religious history Immanuel is connected to Jesus, but there is so much more to the story of this incredible personality who literally "God With Us."
Let's explore this Son of ancient history, of ancient times in Scripture who "hails from Paradise."
Ratta - Princess of the World
The Urantia Book tells us about Ratta, the woman who married the first son of Adam, and we learn about her contributions to the world some 35 thousand years ago during the early days of the spread of the Adamites.
It's a wonderful story of a person whom time has forgotten, but whose journey and impact is explored on the pages of the Urantia revelation.

There remains much confusion as to the difference between the Spirit and The Soul. In this podcast we give a brief look at Paper 111 from the Urantia Book on the difference between the two entities, what they mean and what many of our great religions have said in thier attempts to understand.
