    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    If there is a hell it is not for people who hate Jesus, it is for people who hate God. Matthew 12:31-32 “So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy can be forgiven—except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven. Anyone who speaks against the Son of Man can be forgiven, but...

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    No, that is not true. I know many atheists who never hate or judge. They are loving and caring. It seems to me that it is the Christians who hate and judge.

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    Isaiah 53. Jews believe it is about Israel, Christians believe it is about Jesus, and Baha’is believe it is about Baha’u’llah. You have to read the whole chapter and each verse to determine what or who it is about. Christians and Baha’is believe Isaiah 53 is about the Messiah but only some...

    What is your opinion of Jesus?

    Stories written about eyewitnesses is not evidence. Anyone can write a story, but that doesn't mean it is a true story.

    What is God's highest priority?

    Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Baha'i Faith wrote....... “In conclusion of this theme, I feel, it should be stated that the Revelation identified with Bahá’u’lláh abrogates unconditionally all the Dispensations gone before it, ” God Passes By, p. 100 What does it mean that all the...

    Why So Much Trinity Bashing?

    I am still not sure what you mean by materiality. When I think of materiality I think of something physical. How can our spirit be made of something physical? You mean the new body will be body, soul and spirit and the physical body we have now is only body and soul? That makes sense to me...

    What is God's highest priority?

    I believe that God communicates through men who I call Messengers who have a two-fold nature, one human and the other divine. Moses and Jesus were Messengers of God but I don't believe that God is communicating through Moses or Jesus anymore. The Mosaic and Christian dispensations are over...

    What is God's highest priority?

    That's not only true of the Book of Revelation, it is true of the whole Bible! Nobody seems to agree on what it means because they are interpreting it differently.

    Why So Much Trinity Bashing?

    What do you mean by "a materiality?" Why do you think our body is who we are? I believe that the body was created for a purpose. I believe that the soul was created for a purpose. I believe the soul is who we are and the body is just a vehicle by which the soul expresses itself when we are...

    What is God's highest priority?

    I don't think we can know what God's highest priority is, but I think we can know what God's highest priority is 'for us', to know and worship God. By worship, I don't mean sitting in a church and praying and praising God. I mean loving God and serving God by the work we do. If we work for...

    Why would God's ultimate power come with ultimate responsibility?

    So, what I hear you saying is that since God knows everything and can do everything at once without any effort, that means that he can intervene whenever He chooses, and because God can do everything, it is not wrong that God is ultimately responsible for doing everything that we think He should...

    Is there such a thing as a universal religion?

    I understand your point... And this bit that was in the OP: Is it possible to have a truly universal religion that doesn't just end up being a bland, sterile philosophy? To be honest, sometimes I think that Baha'i Faith is too dogmatic, but I have never been much for any religion. I disagree...

    Are We Born Into Depravity?

    No, I believe we were born good, not evil, but we have two natures so we can choose to follow our lower material nature or our higher spiritual nature. “In man there are two natures; his spiritual or higher nature and his material or lower nature. In one he approaches God, in the other he lives...

    Is there such a thing as a universal religion?

    The Baha'i Faith will alienate some people, I never said it wouldn't. When people of different beliefs hear what we believe many of them will be alienated. However, that does not mean the Baha'i Faith is not a universalizing religion. Universalizing means we welcome anyone and everyone who...

    The only solution is to love all mankind

    You said: If the Baha'i Faith teaches "accepting all humans as equals regardless of religion, race, and nationality," why does it also encourage converting others to the religion? The Baha'i Faith teaches "accepting all humans as equals regardless of religion, race, and nationality," but...

    Is there such a thing as a universal religion?

    I believe that the Baha'i Faith is such a religion.

    Is there such a thing as a universal religion?

    I ran across this website about Ethnic vs. Universalizing Religions several years ago. It explains the difference between these two kinds of religions. A universalizing religion looks for new members and welcomes anyone and everyone who wishes to adopt their belief system. Throughout history...
