Does anyone care ?

Does anyone care that GOD was NOT mentioned in yesterday’s Thanksgiving Day address ?

(603.3) 53:3.2 1. The reality of the Universal Father. Lucifer charged that the Universal Father did not really exist, that physical gravity and space-energy were inherent in the universe, and that the Father was a myth invented by the Paradise Sons to enable them to maintain the rule of the universes in the Father’s name.

George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Day Proclamation:
WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLIC THANSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;– for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish Constitutions of government for our sasety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;– for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;– and, in general, for all the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;

– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

(signed) G. Washington

Mary HobbitFan Aseltyne I know that I am a little late to this conversation, but I don’t think God cares what a person on this little planet says, or omits saying, as long as we are evolving according to Michael’s plan
Nebadon Urantia
Nebadon Urantia (1468.3) 133:0.3 . . .There are only two groups of mortals in the eyes of God: those who desire to do his will and those who do not.

 

Nebadon Urantia
Nebadon Urantia (1468.3) 133:0.3 . . . As the universe looks upon an inhabited world, it likewise discerns two great classes: those who know God and those who do not. Those who cannot know God are reckoned among the animals of any given realm.

Mary HobbitFan Aseltyne but omitting to say God does not mean a person does not know God, it means that person understands he is the President of those who know and don’t know, not their Prime Minister

Krista Soots So Obama is an animal who cannot know God???
Oh my….
Racism has found new avenues for self-expression – let’s quote the Urantia Book to slur and slander those with whom we disagree! Especially if they are too brilliant to be black….too discreet in their expression of their religious views to be comprehended by the religious right!

Nebadon Urantia Krista – I can see where your coming from. . .
Krista Soots
Krista Soots I know you wrote in support of Herman Cain – a man of limited intelligence and questionable marital ethics who had no hope of winning the race, and was therefore ideal for right-wing people to cheer to show their unracistness. But Obama is scarier because he has a higher level of intelligence and spiritual poise than most of his opponents.
What reallly gets me though is the presumption that any one of us here has the gravitas, all-knowingness, wisdom and loving compassion of the Ancients of Days, who alone make the decision of who holds the Spirit of God, and who does not.
Krista Soots
Krista Soots The equation of animal and black man is still too fresh in the psyche of racist cultures world-over to generate anything other than a suspicion on the part of the reader that the purpose of the comment is simply to degrade the Black individual in question
Nebadon Urantia
Nebadon Urantia Krista – You seem to do a pretty good job at spinning Truth. I would prefer that you stick to Urantia Book quotes to make your points. Do unto others as you would have them do to you. . .
