Letter To The Editor: The Urantia Book

Dear Editor and local Pastors:
 
The Lord’s Prayer
 
Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed by your name.
Your kingdom come; your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our bread for tomorrow;
Refresh our souls with the water of life.
And forgive us every one our debts.
As we also have forgiven our debtors.
Save us in temptation, deliver us from evil,
And increasingly make us perfect like yourself.
 
Jesus never intended for anyone to have a standard prayer as He taught we should each speak our honest and sincere heart as we talk with Him and seek his counsel.
 
Honest desires count more before God than all the standard prayers mankind can formulate. The Lord’s Prayer arose as Jesus was being the father/brother to his eight brothers and sisters after the death of Joseph, and kept suggesting lines for them to use in the formulation of their own prayers.
 
But like most mortals, they resisted, finding it easier to repeat a standard prayer than stand before God alone, naked, and to speak with an honest heart.
 
But notice the distortions human beings have inserted on the prayer of Jesus creation. Jesus told us to pray for spiritual bread, not our physical bread for today.
 
In other passages, Jesus told us not to worry about our food for today, as he has legions of angels to help with these problems and He would rather you spend your time on spiritual thought, or the bread of tomorrow.
 
So how do you teach the Lord’s Prayer?
 
Do you pray for your daily bread, or do you pray for your spiritual bread?
 
Do you seek the everlasting water of life, or do you seek a physical beverage of our choice?
 
Do you seek perfection in your thoughts and actions, or are you caught up in the day to day acts of living, which always draw us to mortal thoughts, rather than moral thoughts?
 
My hope and prayer is that you will read The Urantia Book, so that you will know the truth of His teachings and so that you can then teach others of this same truth.
 
God has given us a tremendous gift in The Urantia Book with the true teaching of Jesus, a description of the ascension process, and most important to me, information on how to bring our planet back from darkness to the light of life.
 
We are now beginning the formation of the Third Urantian Garden of Edentia and I hope you will some day be a part of this grand adventure.
 
Moore later, if it be the will of God, and the Post.
