Isn't that the scary thing of all religious groups? They talk all sweet and nice and only about a few that won't scare you off... and then, once they got you in, they get into the "deep" stuff. And that does happen, as I'm sure you know a lot with Baha'is, because they have their nice little, cozy fireside chats. They give you those things like all religions are one, God is one, there is only one race the human race and it all sounds fantastic, but who knows what lurks in the untranslated texts. And, if a translation can't be as accurate as the original language, then what?
That means different people are going to have different interpretations, and then split off into different sects? The Baha'is always say; "No, it will never happen". But then some of us point out how it's already happened and then they say; "But those people are covenant breakers and don't have much of a following." But that's still a sect isn't it? I don't know.
I agree with you on all the rules and enforcing of rules that could happen if Baha'is become the majority. And to that they say that they won't impose their laws on the world. So what's that all about? They're going to be in the majority and allow the minority, that aren't Baha'is, to have a second set of laws? And, since they are supposed to obey the government, the Bahai's would be obligated to follow those laws also?
I guess I should mention "infallibility" to stay on topic. When has any religion ever been infallible? Yet, so many make that claim?
In the end, all the answers to the questions you ask and remarks you make are for you to decide upon.
What to consider here CG is also what all Baha'i have had to consider and decide for themselves. Is Baha'u'llah who He says He is and has Baha'u'llah offered advice from God, advice that is Infallible. If this is so, then all that He has offered will unfold. All the unheaded warnings will have consequences, to which some have already been realised.
Thus the fireside chats can now take on a greater urgency, the world is hurtling towards a rapid change, a change many of us will not make it through. We can not avoid this now, we have long past that point of no return. In saying that I do not see it as doom and gloom, I see it now as a much needed cleansing of the mind of man, a mind lost in the negative aspects of this material world.
How hard is it for us to see, at the least, we are but One People and every person should have the basic needs of life and all of us should help them to have it.
