1)Possibly. I don't see teaching as one who is learned saying something to one who is ignorant. Rather two friends or acquaintances sharing what they care about. Then it is mutual and we learn from each other.
2)I don't think all faiths are wonderful though.
3)Sometimes people end up with the religion they deserve.
Thanks again for the informed and rational response.
1) I tried to see teaching school like that ... a mutual thing. Certainly a few students taught me a lot. I do have moments when I feel compelled to share, but they're always when someone asks, usually at temple, or when I'm asked to host a group there. Some members of my sampradaya have held classes, and they put up a poster to announce it.
2) Certainly I don't think all faiths are wonderful either, but I don't think anyone out there is easily changed, until they have the realisation, 'Uh, oh, what am I doing?" Then they go looking, and yes they end up with the religion they deserve, for the most part. Baha'i' is most certainly a step up from the really dogma based stuff like radical Islam or fundamentalist Christianity. But I don't generalise either. There are many loving and tolerant Christian churches, and Islamic groups who willingly participate in interfaith diuscussions, for example.
