“Faith acts to release the superhuman activities
of the divine spark,
the immortal germ, that lives within the mind of man, and which is the potential of
eternal survival.” -Urantia Book
“… nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.
Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow
—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“Theology may fix, formulate, define, and dogmatize faith, but in the human life of Jesus faith was personal, living, original, spontaneous, and purely spiritual.
This faith was not reverence for tradition nor a mere intellectual belief which he held as a sacred creed,
but rather a sublime experience and a profound conviction which securely held him.
His faith was so real and all-encompassing that it absolutely swept away any spiritual doubts and effectively destroyed every conflicting desire.
Nothing was able to tear him away from the spiritual anchorage of this fervent, sublime, and undaunted faith.
Even in the face of apparent defeat or in the throes of disappointment and threatening despair,
he calmly stood in the divine presence free from fear and fully conscious of spiritual invincibility.
Jesus enjoyed the invigorating assurance of the possession of unflinching faith, and in each of life’s trying situations he unfailingly exhibited an unquestioning loyalty to the Father’s will.
And this superb faith
was undaunted even by the cruel and crushing threat of an ignominious death…”
