Topical studies

Review of key concepts and teaching aids developed in SoS and by Dr. Chris over time.

  • Words that are 180-degrees flipped (visionary, etc)

  • Being born of the Spirit (born again)
  • God the Mother (where is the handle to grab ahold of text-wide? Is there one?)
  • Table of Contents: The mechanics of engaging the Urantia Book
    • Its super-structure. It's not like any other thing you've read. You can't just read it.
    • Why the authors of papers are the authors that they are
    • Con: could be exhausting, dry, etc, and we tend to cover this as-we-go

    • Science, philosophy, and religion. Reconciling these with philosophy
    • Matter, mind (and brain), spirit and Deity

    • Requirements for civilization to progress
  • [Jenny] Rebellion and default: how it is still impacting society today
  • [Jenny] Structure and origin of the cosmos
    • Paradise, Havana, Superuniverses, local levels
    • Con: already somewhat covered this in the Paradise Ascent.
  • [Jenny] Jesus/Michael who is He and why did He come to our world
  • [Jenny] Our destiny: why we are here and where we are going
  • [Jenny] How we can have eternal life
    • And how that happens; Our binary choice: yes or no to eternal life
    • The work of the Thought Adjuster within us
  • [Jenny] Fatherhood of God, Our sonship and brotherhood of man

  • Closing Argument: a 2-4 episode look back. Sum up. Synthesize.

Discarded ideas

  • Something that would pair with or play off PHI's Friday night study
    • No. Organic is better.

    • Unlikely we'll ever cover these on SoS because of their dense nature.
  • Topical study: The local universe
    • Covered previously in Paradise ascent arc and The Five Epochal Revelations arc.
    • Beginning paper 32. maybe thru 35 or 36 or more...who can say? to Morontia life??
