    on Faith

    I see and personally would say it is a leap into the Light. As such Faith is enlightenment. The unknown self, the self that embraces the light, is pursued and knowledge of our spiritual selves is gained, whole new worlds are opened before our eyes. Regards Tony

    There is no proof of God ...

    The greatest proof of God, when the Messengers are no longer walking this earth, is the Word that is given. That Word will set the standard for the Dispensation, no other vision is as complete as the God given Revelation. As times unfolds that wisdom given in that Message unfolds, the Counsels...

    Faith, Peace, and Love

    Even though I see we have the choice, I also see that it is a gift, not that anyone is worthy of that gift, so it also pure bounty, a bounty we should not be careless of. An interesting concept is that God sends the Messengers to those that need it most, not because they are the most worthy...

    There is no proof of God ...

    All depends what one thinks is important. Everything but Christ is non-existent, nothing worthy of mention, all dependent on Christ, that includes the Beatles, you and me. Even the dust around Jesus was exalted above the knowledge of the learned and all the praise of all that glorified Him...

    Faith, Peace, and Love

    This is very good advice. The key to obtaining the goal reflected in your suggestion, to me, has also been given to us in the example of Abdul'baha. We have been told by Baha'u'llah that Abdul-Baha was given as a gift to humanity, as a perfect example to acheive what is reflected in the quote...

    Faith, Peace, and Love

    Personally I have no issues with that. As a Baha'i we have 3 Obligatory prayers, that we can choose one of to say every day. All those prayers tell me why I am here. The short Obligatory Prayer If we choose this one, it is to he said at midday (Can be said between midday and sunset) The Medium...

    Faith, Peace, and Love

    If I consider how God sends the Messengers, then to me faith is born out of a pure sacraficing Love, not a self based love. Peace is a result of practicing faith, practicing the given Message. Which seems to reflected in what you offered. Regards Tony

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    I personally see ample evidence in Biblical Scriptures to support the comment. Many passages could be offered. I will leave this alone now though, there is no fruit in this discussion. Regards Tony

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    There is a quandary all faiths have and will face. All Messengers have faced those that have done this. Regards Tony

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    That is the heritage promised, the bounty of Isaiah, a heritage to those that embrace the One and only Lord. Isaiah 54:17 "No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the...

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    It transcends my and any persons opinion. Jesus the Christ transcends our acceptance of His God given Station. That Station needs none of us to embrace the Christ. It is but a pure bounty that we can choose to embrace, 100% God given Bounty, Grace and Mercy. Regards Tony

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    Just so you know. As a Baha'i I have embraced that the Catholic Church is the legitimate representative of Jesus the Christ. This advice is how I see this issue. "A Catholic background is an excellent introduction to the Faith, and one that Mrs. ... should feel gratified for having had. Though...

    No Baha'u'llah did not. That Tablet to the Pope, is God though "Christ" speaking to humanity. Regards Tony

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    I see all Faiths have a spring, summer, autumn and winter, the Baha'i Faith is not exempt from the cycles God has set for this reality, all faiths inclusive. In the context of these cycles, the Baha'i Faith was born in the deep winter of Islam, and the spring of a new cycle of the Baha'i era...

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    "There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28, cf Colossians 3:11 and Romans 10:12) The key here is that we are "One in Christ", which confirms what Peter said and confirms that the church...

    Common doctrine and a Baha'i-Christian dialogue

    The comments I make are supported by scripture. Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find...
