The Creator Son rules supreme in all matters of ethical associations, the relations of any division of creatures to any other class of creatures or of two or more individuals within any given group.  Dispensational resurrections keep groups together for long effective service.  Groups are under jurisdiction of social architects, the seraphim that labor to enhance all sincere social contacts and to further the social evolution.  Mind planner seraphim organize teamwork on mansion worlds.  The selective assorters are also of great service in the grouping of morontia personalities for purposes of study, teaching, and other projects.  Solitary Messengers contribute much to the development, in all spirit beings, of a consciousness of group identity.  Spirit of Truth was designed to lessen the self-assertiveness of individuals, groups, nations, and races.  Progress within a given realm is individual, but transition from one phase to another is usually by classes. 
Spirit-gravity pull and response thereto operate not only on the universe as a whole but also even between individuals and groups of individuals. Spirit gravity creates cohesiveness among believers.  Mortals may reassociate in working groups for service on mansion worlds.  Survivors depart from mansion worlds for Jerusem in groups. 
Jesus invested legislative and judicial authority in the group, not in the individual.  Thomas always abided by group decisions. He was a good loser. He did not hold grudges nor nurse wounded feelings.  Paul was a great organizer. 
We must perfect the ability to live in intimate contact with similar and different people, experiencing less irritability and less resentment.  We must achieve the willingness to submit the self to the disciplines of group activities and co-ordinated undertakings. 
We can accomplish more permanent things by working with our brethren in the flesh.  Groups anticipate and transcend individual capacities.  Man benefits by loyalty to human associations and temporal institutions.  Members of a group reap benefits and suffer consequences of others’ actions.  Groups are vastly greater and stronger than the mere sum of their individual units. 
Religion ministers to the progress of all through fostering the progress of each individual, and the progress of each is augmented through the achievement of all.  Spiritual growth is stimulated by intimate association with other religionists. 
In dealing with human personality it would be nearer the truth to say that such a personality association is a sum equal to the square of the number of personalities concerned in the equation rather than the simple arithmetical sum.
