The Baha'i Faith is a very interesting religion. It allows its members to do virtually anything they want and remain a Baha'i. If you are gay and want to have a gay marriage, you cannot have a gay Baha'i marriage, but you can get married the secular way if your government permits it. There's a...
We like to divide the world up into categories. This is to simplify communication among other things. If we had to be exact with our words in every case communication would take a ridiculously long time. The issue is that the categories and meanings we have in our heads tend to not all...
It is a question that has been asked of me, so I start with my answer. It could be put in many ways.
I always consider the roots of faith. I see that the Prophets and Messengers are from God and are the source of Oneness, yet those Messages are also the sword that divides.
Then I consider that...
That is what I see happening.
The world events are fully reflecting both the promise of a United Future and the destruction of an old dysfunctional Old World Order.
So when will we get there, the Baha'i Universal House of Justice offered this in the 1985 Peace Message.
"Whether peace is to...
Wyoming GOP voters are on the brink of ousting Liz Cheney for her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump
To explain Cheney’s predicament, it’s important to recognize that ordinary thinking about how democracy works begins with a mistaken premise.
We assume that voters first determine their...
This is a new video about Abdul'baha.
I hope the link works.
If only we could be as Abdul'baha was!
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...
This is a follow on from the New Athiest Humanities Downfall?
It has been recorded.
"The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. This unity can never be achieved so long as the counsels which the Pen of the Most High...
How applicable is this concept for humanity to find a path to unity?
Surprisingly, it is a catch phrase being used across the world now, becoming popular as humanity strives to find a unity in the affairs on mankind.
Where does this concept come from? Well I see it is founded in many faiths...
I see that is maybe a path we can make the world a better place.
How about it. Lets share what we can do to build the world the next generations would be proud to live in.
So How about it? Regards Tony
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the passing of Abdul'baha, a new video has been released on His life.
It was a life of example of unity and peace.
If you choose to watch, it is just over 55 minutes and I hope you enjoy.
How is this possible?
Israel is the centre of the Faith in One God.
Stands to reason God chose the Centre point of all God given Faiths. Stands to reason they would not last, if they are not of God.
Israel has millions of pilgrims each year going to give praise to One God.
This OP is about self Imposed restrictions, as there are many concepts we have to rise above, if indeed we want to see a world of peace, where as a majority, we agree to work for the good of all.
If you have a faith, it is bigger than you.
If you have any predudices, it is bigger than you...
The following book has been put together from the Baha'i writings, the quotes show us what the world is now going through, and what is to come.
It is posted here for any people that would like to discover the solutions to the Crisis faced in this age.
If you have any questions, please ask and...
This is in a debate section so all can discuss, it is not a debate I am after, but solutions offered to race disunity.
In 1912 in America a talk was given by Abdul'baha, the New York Times reported that the mission stated in the talk was “to do away with prejudices…, prejudice of nationality...
I believe if a human respects other humans and loves them as he loves himself, and is rational in this regard, because mathematically I don't have more or less value then others except what God knows best in his vision from our stage with him, they will enter paradise.
I believe there are many...
A comment in another thread asked;
"OK, let know the Baha'i people's success for establishment of the Universal auxiliary language, please."
The response was that it was not the responsibility of just the Baha'i to implement a world auxiliary language, it is the responsibility of all people of...
The topic to discuss here is that of Open Boarders for refugees and a vision for the future.
As a Baha'i there is a picture of what must and will unfold in this world before we can find peace. Unity of the human race is a pre-requisite
Part of this picture was given back in the mid to late...
Why are predudices so dangerous?
This topic is raised as it appears most of the conlict in the world and apparent in RF debates, comes about by predudices built on many aspects of life.
I see that is a sound and fair comment.
The base human rights one should use when posting on this topic is...
