We have every right to judge! Haven't you read this verse?

"Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!" 1 Corinthians 6:3

Urantia cult apllies because truth is truth. The bible was truth distorted by time and greed and wealth/power. The modern bible is a shadow of its former truths. i wouldnt go to the bible for truth no more than i would go to the yellow pages for it.

The difference is judging to condemn and judging to edify and build up. We are never to judge and condemn. That's why Paul admonishes us to not judge another servant of the Lord. You're forgetting that even though they have some theological issues, if they magnify Jesus Christ as Lord they have the Holy Spirit. No man can believe Christ is the Lord without the Holy Spirit:

"Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is accursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit." 1 Corinthians 12:3

Now, if this thread is about celibacy and what Paul teaches that's fine, if this is a thread to bash Catholics I'll bow out. I'm not going to judge Christ's servants. (Romans 14:4)

Urantia was created by occult automatic writing. It's the writings of people possessed by demons.

And a little more from a great enlightening book:


4. Woman’s Status in Early Society (935.1) 84:4.1 Generally speaking, during any age woman’s status is a fair criterion of the evolutionary progress of marriage as a social institution, while the progress of marriage itself is a reasonably accurate gauge registering the advances of human civilization. (935.2) 84:4.2 Woman’s status has always been a social paradox; she has always been a shrewd manager of men; she has always capitalized man’s stronger sex urge for her own interests and to her own advancement. By trading subtly upon her sex charms, she has often been able to exercise dominant power over man, even when held by him in abject slavery. (935.3) 84:4.3 Early woman was not to man a friend, sweetheart, lover, and partner but rather a piece of property, a servant or slave and, later on, an economic partner, plaything, and childbearer. Nonetheless, proper and satisfactory sex relations have always involved the element of choice and co-operation by woman, and this has always given intelligent women considerable influence over their immediate and personal standing, regardless of their social position as a sex. But man’s distrust and suspicion were not helped by the fact that women were all along compelled to resort to shrewdness in the effort to alleviate their bondage. (935.4) 84:4.4 The sexes have had great difficulty in understanding each other. Man found it hard to understand woman, regarding her with a strange mixture of ignorant mistrust and fearful fascination, if not with suspicion and contempt. Many tribal and racial traditions relegate trouble to Eve, Pandora, or some other representative of womankind. These narratives were always distorted so as to make it appear that the woman brought evil upon man; and all this indicates the onetime universal distrust of woman. Among the reasons cited in support of a celibate priesthood, the chief was the baseness of woman. The fact that most supposed witches were women did not improve the olden reputation of the sex. (935.5) 84:4.5 Men have long regarded women as peculiar, even abnormal. They have even believed that women did not have souls; therefore were they denied names. During early times there existed great fear of the first sex relation with a woman; hence it became the custom for a priest to have initial intercourse with a virgin. Even a woman’s shadow was thought to be dangerous.

"But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!" -Galatians 1:8

Urantia is a false Gospel. Enjoy your stay in Hell for spreading a false Gospel heretic.

"I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them." -Romans 16:17

You're ignorant man. John was filled with the Holy Spirit.

Urantia goes against what is taught in the Bible. You're going to go to Hell for your lies.

LOL this is so funny, thanks for the compliment. The urantia book is more in harmony with the bible than the bible which is filled with errors and double talk.

Wait, just because Jack T. Chick violates Romans 14:4, I'm supposed to as well?

How does that make any sense?

You're just trying to derail the thread through your cult book.
It has nothing to do with the Bible and you know it.

DUDE calm down! I know you mean well, but you're not acting with the love and compassion of Christ. "Heretics" are not unbelievers, heretics are wolves in sheep's clothing, or in other words people who claim to be Christian but who hold and teach doctrines contrary to the Word.

Unbelievers by definition are not "heretics". Come on, let's show some love and compassion.

Covers the topic of judging. You have an incorrect view of what the Bible actually teaches.
