    Do you, as a Baha'i, have a larger than life view of God, to the extent of believing He can cause the extinction of life, like in the case of the Great Flood?

    Thanks for the question "AT-AT"! and visiting the Baha'i Faith DIR.... Baha'is view God as being "larger than life" and having an "Unknowable Essence". What we know of Him is through His Messengers and Prophets that we call the "Manifestations of God." It is through His Prophets that we receive guidance.

    Baha'u'llah Prophet-Founder of the Baha'i Faith has revealed to us the following:

    "…in the kingdoms of earth and heaven there must needs be manifested a Being, an Essence Who shall act as a Manifestation and Vehicle for the transmission of the grace of the Divinity Itself, the Sovereign Lord of all. Through the Teachings of this Day Star of Truth every man will advance and develop until he attaineth the station at which he can manifest all the potential forces with which his inmost true self hath been endowed. It is for this very purpose that in every age and dispensation the Prophets of God and His chosen Ones have appeared amongst men, and have evinced such power as is born of God and such might as only the Eternal can reveal."

    – Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, pp. 67-68.
