According to the first verse of the Most Holy Baha'i book, if you do not Believe in Baha'u'llah and do not follow his orders you are astray even if you perform every righteous of deed:
"The first duty prescribed by God for His servants is the recognition of Him Who is the Dayspring of His Revelation and the Fountain of His laws, Who representeth the Godhead in both the Kingdom of His Cause and the world of creation. Whoso achieveth this duty hath attained unto all good; and whoso is...
High school teacher in Virginia fired for refusing to call transgender student male pronouns The Bible says in Genesis that God makes people male or female. Science determines that gender is decided at conception. I noticed that many on the far left are only going after Christians and their right to religious liberty and free speech. How hypocritical. I think this teacher should sue the school on First Amendment grounds.
As some of you may know from reading some of my previous posts, I am a big fan of Bishop John Shelby Spong. His books, videos and blogs have bought some reality to my faith.
I would like to encourage all of those who have a faith, but have been disillusioned by the blindness and unreality within the evangelical church to read his new book 'Unbelievable" is a MUST read.
Bible scholar and Episcopal bishop John Shelby Spong contends that there is mounting pressure among Christians for a...
It always seems that people who believe in evolution are trying to defend the science to a detail yet there are things that need to be addressed if you are proposing Intelligent design. Here are a few question I have to understand the evidence for intelligent design.

2. Is the goddess or god continuously...
"High school teacher in Virginia fired for refusing to call transgender student male pronouns
A few days ago, the West Point Public School Board in Virginia voted unanimously to fire Peter Vlaming, a French teacher who had taught for seven years, because he refused to call a transgender freshman with the pronouns “he” and “him.” Vlaming said his Christian faith prohibited him from treat the student with respect and dignity.
Peter Vlaming, who taught French class at West Point High School...
"In what is surely the dumbest protest taking place in America, Christians picketed outside the courthouse in Ravenna, Ohio in order for the city to bring back a Nativity scene outside the government building.
Officials decided to remove the Nativity scene after realizing that last year’s display violated the law. Rather than keep the display and open the floodgates to atheists and Satanists and everyone else, Mayor Frank Seman chose the safer route of just not putting any displays up at...
After hearing so many arguments about atheism and is atheism a religion as well as question about is Wicca really a religion to be taken seriously not to mention the reconstructed pagan religions. It made me wonder about what it takes to be considered a religion if that is even possible. I am not trying to argue against religion in this question but rather to see how people view religion outside of the definition on the internet which are all limited and seem to be too general or specific...
This is a carryover from a dialogue that has been ongoing between me and an Atheist on another forum for about five years... Yes, five years and we are still going around in the same circles. I posted something about this about six months ago but I am back with a slightly different slant.
Synopsis: The issue at hand is that this Atheist thinks that God should communicate directly to everyone in the world (all 7.4 billion people) because that is “what he considers” the only credible method...
