    A little something I wrote for the Divine Mother

    Howdy! I just felt like writing this out and figured I'd share it here. Hope you like it. The Tea Gathering I once awoke to find my room filled with so many of my great loves. Jesus sat beside Buddha who sat beside Nanak who sat beside Rumi who sat beside Eckhart who sat beside Zhuangzi who...

    Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, Syncretism and relationship

    Howdy ho! At this point I may as well call myself Syncretism cat. Recently I was meditating and praying as is my usual activity. Sometimes I mix up which form of God I focus on though usually it is Kali, Shiva, Waheguru etc. This time I decided to use Christ as the center focus and use the...

    Religion, Spirituality and Effort

    Howdy! I was thinking that a lot of folks seem to forget that spiritual paths require effort. Yes you might be a part of a path merely by claiming membership in said path but often this is only the beginning. If one claims to be a Buddhist for example this is all cool and good but if you...

    The Subtle Difference Between All religions are truth and All religions have some truth

    Howdy I have been thinking about the nature of truth and religion for a bit today so I decided I would type out my thoughts and share them. Some folks won't agree with the stuff I want to say and that is of course fine. There is a subtle difference between the idea that all religions have some...

    Glory to Jesus and His Martyrdom this Good Friday

    As a Baha'i we do not celebrate all the holy days of all religions, even though we embrace the Messenger that founded them. We will share in the commendation of those days with family, if the faith is our background and they celebrate them, or if invited to do so by others. The day that Jesus...

    Tell the World

    Well William Miller told the world that 1844 was the year awaited by many. So why did they not see what they had predicted and expected? I see He got it right. Regards Tony

    Where was Jesus Buried.

    I see that Logically Jesus was buried and was kept a secret, so that the grave would not be desecrated. There is a talk given by Shoghi Effendi which is no an official Baha'i view, but is of interest. It was given in a talk after Shoghi Effendi had been sitting in silence for a while and he...

    Your Thoughts on God's Will For Believers In Christ Jesus?

    What are your thoughts about these scriptures to seem to profess God's will for Christian believers? Do you believe what these scriptures found in 1 Thessalonians 5 have any merit to the life of a Christian believer considering it has to do with God's will for believers? Have you ever been...

    A Happy Christ Mass to all

    May the reason for the Season be embraced by all who have come to Love the Spirit, which was Jesus the Christ. It is at this time many Christians remember the birth of Jesus, who became known as the Christ, the Son of God, the Son of Man "For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost"...

    The Resurrection of Jesus: Allegorical Story or Historical Truth?

    Most of us from a Christian background are familiar with the story of how Jesus is crucified and after three days rises from the dead. Over a period of forty days He appears to His disciples and eventually ascends through the stratosphere to be with His Father in heaven. No atheists will believe...

    The Symbolism of Bread and Wine

    Christ spoke: "This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die." John 6:50 What is the meaning of this utterance? What is the significance of bread and wine as spoken by Christ in the Gospels?

    May all have a Christ filled Christmas

    I wish all Christians all the best in life and on this day of celebrating the birth of Jesus the Christ, all the best Faith can give. May God bless you always.

    Any believers who read the Quran, Gospel, Psalms and the Torah?

    I am reading them and it's good to see that God speaks to the nations and sends them Messengers from among themselves. I am also learning Greek, Hebrew and Arabic. Any other believers here in this DIR who believe Jesus is the Son, the Christ, and that only YHVH the Father is God, and that there...

    Christ Has returned, what should have we looked for?

    This thread is simple. This is about the promise of Christ Return. From a Baha'i point of view this event has happened and was Fulfilled in the Messages of the Bab ("Gate") and Baha'u'llah ("Glory of God", or "Glory of the Lord"). As many await this event, both Christians and Muslims, how did...
