“In evolution, religion often leads to man’s creating his concepts of God; revelation exhibits the phenomenon of God’s evolving man himself, while in the earth life of Christ Michael [incarnated as Jesus] we behold the phenomenon of God’s revealing himself to man. Evolution tends to make God manlike; revelation tends to make man Godlike.” [UB, 102:3.14]

Thought Adjuster: “Godlikeness has everything to do with the use of your free will focused on the sole manifestation of truth, beauty, and goodness. It is about inner similitudes—not external ones, as the Father is a disincarnated Spirit.

Your physical body is the current womb of your embryonic soul. As you grow a healthy soul, you grow in Godlikeness. The best way to get a grasp on the path of Godlikeness is an in-depth study of the life and teachings of Jesus as revealed in the Fifth Epochal Revelation of the Urantia Book.

The word-of-mouth record of his human life had to be purged of misunderstandings, misinterpretations, and misconceptions, as they impair the forward development of the striving soul. By his exemplary WAY of life, Jesus set all required parameters for Godlike living. He always ensured that his human decisions were all about doing the Father’s Will. When in doubt, he added the powerful disclaimer: “But my will is to do Your Will.” By doing so, he was ever receptive to course corrections.

Godlikeness also entails living with humility and being accepting of others as such are the ways of unconditional love. It is putting to altruistic use all your God-given gifts and talents, thus becoming a qualified co-creator with the Divine. It is letting His Spirit flow through yours, downloading His life-enhancing inspirations and making you truly HAPPY.”
