[HERE IS THE CORRECT SAMPLE TEXT !]
PAPER 118. Supreme and Ultimate—Time and Space
6. Omnipotence and Omnificence [All Power and All Doing]
118:6.4 All volition is relative. In the originating sense, only the Father-I AM possesses finality of volition; in the absolute sense, only the Father, the Son, and the Spirit exhibit the prerogatives of volition unconditioned by time and unlimited by space. Mortal man is endowed with free will, the power of choice, and though such choosing is not absolute, nevertheless, it is relatively final on the finite level and concerning the destiny of the choosing personality.
7. Omniscience and Predestination [Infinite Knowledge and For-ordain]
118:7.1 The function of Creator will and creature will, in the [Supreme level] grand universe, operates within the limits, and in accordance with the possibilities, established by the [higher Ultimate level Master Universe] Master Architects. This foreordination of these maximum limits does not, however, in the least abridge the sovereignty of creature will within these boundaries. Neither does ultimate foreknowledge — full allowance for all finite choice — constitute an abrogation of finite volition. A mature and farseeing human being might be able to forecast the decision of some younger associate most accurately, but this foreknowledge takes nothing away from the freedom and genuineness of the decision itself. The Gods [Trinity, Supreme, Ultimate, Absolute of the Father-Infinite] I AM] have wisely limited the range of the action of immature will, but it is true will, nonetheless, within these defined limits. [The more of God's love, mercy, ministry, truth, beauty and goodness you live and share, the more Godly you are becoming -- without end ...]
118:7.4 Sin in time-conditioned space clearly proves the temporal liberty — even license — of the finite will. Sin depicts immaturity dazzled by the freedom of the relatively sovereign will of personality while failing to perceive the supreme obligations and duties of cosmic citizenship. [in the Family of God.]
118:7.8 Therefore is there increased safety in narrowing the limits of personality choice throughout the lower levels of existence. [Thank our loving and merciful Father God !] Choice becomes increasingly liberated as the universes are ascended; choice eventually approximates divine freedom when the ascending personality achieves divinity of status, supremacy of consecration to the purposes of the universe, completion of cosmic-wisdom attainment, and finality of creature identification with the will and the way of God.
8. Control and Overcontrol
118:8.6 The slowness of evolution, of human cultural progress, testifies to the effectiveness of that brake — material inertia — which so efficiently operates to retard dangerous velocities of progress. Thus does time itself cushion and distribute the otherwise lethal results of premature escape from the next-encompassing barriers to human action. For when culture advances overfast, when material achievement outruns the evolution of worship-wisdom, then does civilization contain within itself the seeds of retrogression; and unless buttressed by the swift augmentation of experiential wisdom, such human societies will recede from high but premature levels of attainment, and the “dark ages” of the interregnum of wisdom will bear witness to the inexorable restoration of the imbalance between self-liberty and self-control. [Since about A.D. 1950 - on, progressive societies on earth are at a very critical point ! Godless secular humanism and excessive materialism threaten society. Serious wars, revolutions and anarchy could increase if many do not freely turn back to seeking and following our Sovereign Creator Father God here upon all in Spirit !]
[The Last] PART IV. The Life and Teachings of Jesus, Papers 120 - 196
PAPER 120. The Bestowal of [Christ] Michael on Urantia
2. The Bestowal Limitations
120:2.5 [Immanuel to our Creator Son Christ Michael:] “5. As concerns the planet of your bestowal and the immediate generation of men living thereon at the time of your mortal sojourn, I counsel you to function largely in the role of a teacher. Give attention, first, to the liberation and inspiration of man’s spiritual nature. Next, illuminate the darkened human intellect, heal the souls of men, and emancipate their minds from age-old fears. And then, in accordance with your mortal wisdom, minister to the physical well-being and material comfort of your brothers in the flesh. Live the ideal religious life for the inspiration and edification of all your universe."
120:2.6 “6. On the planet of your bestowal, set rebellion-segregated man spiritually free. On Urantia, make a further contribution to the sovereignty of the Supreme, thus extending the establishment of this sovereignty throughout the broad domains of your personal creation. [our local universe of Nebadon with 10,000,000 human-inhabited worlds at the end of this first Grand Universe Age] In this, your material bestowal in the likeness of the flesh, you are about to experience the final enlightenment of a time-space Creator, the dual experience of working within the nature of man with the will of your Paradise Father. In your temporal life the will of the finite creature and the will of the infinite Creator are to become as one, even as they are also uniting in the evolving Deity of the Supreme Being. Pour out upon the planet of your bestowal the Spirit of Truth and thus make all normal mortals on that isolated sphere immediately and fully accessible to the ministry of the segregated presence of our Paradise Father, the Thought Adjusters of the realms."
