About me

Bio for David Kantor

I have been active in the Urantia movement since the late 1960s. 

I worked at the Family of God Foundation from 1974 to 1988 where I set up and managed the multi-media division which produced slide-tape programs for Urantia conferences and reader outreach, as well as providing technical support for international and regional conferences. I have been on the technical support team for the Fellowship’s international conferences since IC’81.

I served on the General Council of the Fellowship for 15 years, 11 of which were as a member of the Executive Committee. From 2001 to 2007 I served as chair of the International Fellowship Committee. 

I traveled extensively in Latin America participating in conferences and meeting with reader groups. I participated in several of the first New Age religious conferences to take place in Russia after the fall of the Soviet regime. 

In 1995 I was instrumental in putting the first Urantia website on the Internet. I began collecting original documents from the Urantia movement’s previous forty years to put online including Meredith Sprunger’s archive and personal correspondence. This collection eventually became the foundation for the Urantia Historical Society. 

I continued managing the Fellowship’s web presence until 2012.

In 2010 I started Urantia Book Films. I wrote, directed, and produced Re-Imagining Jesus, the first feature-length documentary shot in Jordan and Israel on Michael’s bestowal. At present the film has had more than 20,000 start-to-finish views online. A Spanish version has just been released for distribution on DVD in Latin America and a Portuguese version is in post-production. 

I am a charter member of the Golden Gate Circle Society and have served as an officer of Rocky Mountain Spiritual Fellowship. I am a past presenter at international Urantia conferences and many regional gatherings.

  

"The time is ripe to witness the figurative resurrection of the human Jesus from his burial tomb amidst the theological traditions and the religious dogmas of nineteen centuries." 



"Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it."


"A new and fuller revelation of the religion of Jesus is destined to conquer an empire of materialistic secularism and to overthrow a world sway of mechanistic naturalism."

    Urantia Religions

    The many religions of Urantia are all good to the extent that they bring man to God and bring the realization of the Father to man. It is a fallacy for any group of religionists to conceive of their creed as The Truth; such attitudes bespeak more of theological arrogance than of certainty of faith. There is not a Urantia religion that could not profitably study and assimilate the best of the truths contained in every other faith, for all contain truth. Religionists would do better to borrow the best in their neighbors' living spiritual faith rather than to denounce the worst in their lingering superstitions and outworn rituals.
