And this which your eyes now behold, this small beginning of twelve commonplace men, shall multiply and grow until eventually the whole earth shall be filled with the praise of my Father.

About Us

URANTIA CENTRAL is an independent web site that generates, examines and monitors ideas and actions relating to the content of the Urantia Papers. We also identify and engage inclusively about pertinent matters that impact on the future of the revelation, and therefore on the future of the human race.
Image
PURPOSE: We are all on an uncharted journey together, and need group wisdom to safeguard and disseminate the truth of the revelation during our custodianship.

The Papers have been generally studied. Now we need critical analysis of actions and directions, and greater integration into areas such as academia, media, literature, arts, science, and religion. We will seek input from specialists in those fields. Their contributions will expand upon the world’s store of knowledge and understanding.

Image
OUR READERS: We cater for a general readership with varied backgrounds and a wide range of views on philosophy, religion and spiritual matters. It is not a niche site or one requiring extensive knowledge of the Papers.

Based on the numbers of books sold and available in libraries, universities, and religious colleges world wide, it is clear many readers choose to develop their spiritual interests privately and on line. We hope to engage with them. Our target audience is the sane, down to earth and common sense majority. By sharing our news and ideas, we can all benefit from the way the Urantia teachings resonate in our hearts, impact on our thinking, and manifest in our lives.

Image
DIRECTION: Fearlessness and openness are essential for the revelation to succeed. Mainstream media, religions, universities, and interest groups will have varied opinions about the book, its content, and its adherents. How is the world reacting to this revelation? We need to be listening. We may need to present a clarification or rebuttal of misinformation. We may need to link new discoveries to the Papers.

We invite you to be part of the evolution of truth on a complex planet. The key is to source topical material and suitable contributors. Generally the editors will present all reasonable commentary and exclude extremism that is disruptive and offers no progressive position. Successive generations will benefit from the guiding influence of spiritual truth to establish suitable societal mores in an ever-changing world.

Image
RESULT: The site will encourage progressive thinking essential for the acceptance of revealed information. It can increase collaboration and develop friendships. It may reduce barriers of misunderstanding and show the commonality of beliefs amongst peoples and creeds. It can question perceived error and raise issues of accountability.

The Papers will attract a wider audience with new input. More people will find the teachings are relevant to their lives at work, at home, and at play. We are coming to realise that the spiritual dimension is a part of who we are and all we do.
A stronger voice for the revelation will result in a more enlightened journey to a better world, in turn leading to a universal status that is spiritually motivated and based on the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of all mankind.

They may be that 'greater record to come'.

Do the Urantia Papers contain 'one hundred times' more substance than Christian/Mormon scripture?
Image
Image
Image
The Bible is the basis for all Christianity’s beliefs, and for the Mormons (Latter Day Saints), their scriptural source also includes the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price. The Urantia Book—printed in 1955 and of no organized religious affiliation—claims to contain revealed truths, history and cosmology that includes, and makes sense of, all the religions of the world—even those religions not based upon Jesus of Nazareth. One could easily say the Urantia Papers contain 100 times more information about God, time, space and history than do the traditional “scriptures of the world.”

In Mormonism’s formative years, there are scriptural references strongly alluding to “a greater record to come” which would contain the “mysteries of the universe” wherein “all things shall be revealed from the beginning of time.”
No account or claim fills that criterion of the greater things to come … that is, until 1955, when the Urantia Papers materialized.

“And now there cannot be written in this book even a hundredth part of the things which Jesus did truly teach unto the people;” (3 Ne 26: 6)

No person, religion or organization claims to have authored the Urantia Papers … rather, its various authors’ claim are of celestial origin. But does the Urantia Book really reveal a hundred times more information than other Christian scripture? Consider the following:
Image
The word “Jesus” is used:

  • 943 times in the Bible
    168 times in the Book of Mormon
    108 times in the Doctrine and Covenants
    15 times in the Pearl of Great Price
    7,287 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
This does not count the references to Jesus as the word-term “Master,” which is often used in the Bible, and very often used in the Urantia Papers.

This word “Master” is noted:

  • 67 times in the Bible
    0 times in the BofM
    9 times in the D&C
    0 times in the PGP
    1,421 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
In addition, “Michael,” in the Urantia Papers is the personage of Jesus ‘before’ becoming a mortal on earth.

The word “Michael” is used:

  • 61 times in the Bible
    6 times in the BofM
    1 time in the D&C
    0 times in the PGP
    549 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
The LDS (Mormon) teach that Jesus was the “Creator of heaven and earth.” This is in total alignment with the Urantia Papers.

The word “Creator” is used:

  • 5 times in the Bible
    10 times in the BofM
    1 time in the D&C
    1 time in the PGP.
    869 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
Other keyword elements of Christendom would be: Adam and Eve, Garden of Eden, Melchizedek, Abraham, Angels, Crucifixion, Resurrection.
Below is a count on the mention of each in the aforementioned Christian scripture, and the count from Urantia Papers.

“Adam” is mentioned:___________________“Eve” is mentioned:

27 in the Bible_______________________________4 times in the Bible
25 times in the BofM_________________________3 times in the BofM
28 times in the D&C__________________________1 time in the D&C
51 times in the PGP__________________________7 times in the PGP
513 times in the Urantia Papers________________380 times in Urantia Papers
Image
“Garden of Eden” is mentioned:

  • 19 times in the Bible
    9 times in the BofM
    3 times in the D&C
    12 times in the PGP
    168 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
The word “Melchizedek” is used:

  • 3 times in the Bible
    4 times in the BofM
    23 times in the D&C
    7 times in the PGP and JST
    564 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
This one was a surprise … the name “Abraham” is mentioned:

  • 230 times in the Bible
    27 times in the BofM
    30 times in the D&C
    19 times in the PGP
    171 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
The words “angel, cherubim or seraphim” is used:

  • 343 times in the Bible
    168 times in the BofM
    95 times in the D&C
    4 times in the PGP
    1043 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
The words “crucifixion, crucify or crucified” is mentioned:

49 times in the Bible
8 times in the BofM
11 times in the D&C
0 times in the PGP
121 times in the Urantia Papers
Image
The words “resurrected, resurrection or resurrect” is used:

  • 42 times in the Bible
    59 times in the BofM
    26 times in the D&C
    2 times in the PGP
    285 times in the Urantia Papers

Image
It is surely an opinion whether or not The Urantia Book ‘is’ that “greater record to come,” but, it is a fact that the above mentioned Christian terminologies are used “a hundred times” so-to-speak more voluminous in the Urantia Papers, than in the renown Christian scriptures.
