    Is the Baha'i Faith a pluralistic religion?

    Hello All; I was having a discussion with my eldest son the other morning and he made the assertion that the Baha'i Faith is a pluralistic religion. I had to ask him what pluralistic means in this instant, because I wasn't familiar with it. He told me, we talked about it some and at the time...

    Hey Art, I need a smidge of help. Recently I saw on line (on the interfaith forum, I'm fairly certain) with a link that had a comparison between two books in the Bible of Jesus' lineage. I was wondering if this rings a bell and if you know what/where the link is? Thanks for the help. Dana

    Writings revealed in nine different catagories

    As I was looking at the breakdown of subjects, I found that the topics make it easy for someone to investigate. I was just wondering if you know of any website or book seller that breaks down the Baha'i books in that category? Dana

    Writings revealed in nine different catagories

    Ok, I'm not a believer in coincidence; everything happens for a reason. So, my question is this; is this something that was "planned" by Baha'u'llah or something that the scholar was able to discern? IS it a coincidence or...not? Now for the serious question; is there any particular...

    Need a little technical help...

    I don't know if this is the forum to be posting this in, but I'm not really sure where to go, so I thought this would be as good as any. A few days ago I uploaded a pic from my computer for my avatar/icon/picture and I can't see it when I post. Is there a time frame in which I can't have one...

    Ky. mother upset by football player son's baptism

    citizenzen: I don’t think I’m in a position to speculate on what those particular parents would do, however, I stand by my statement. There was no parental knowledge or consent of the itinerary. For me, it’s not a matter of the belief, so much as the right of the parent to raise their...

    Introductions All Around :)

    wil, frankly, I also like pop music a lot. I think I've finally come to an age where I can admit it with little shame. :) But being that my parents are about a generation older than most of my peers (they're in their mid 70's) I had a different exposure when I was very young. I'll happily...

    Some Baha'i Questions

    Thanks Art for the information on the Pilgrimage. I didn't know that particular portion of the history. And yes, I knew the UHJ is the Center of the Faith now, I just didn't understand the president. As for the prayers for the dead, I reread recently that we can pray for the journey of the...

    Why are we listed under "Modern Religions" (not "Abrahamic" religions) in this forum?

    Re: Why are we listed under "Modern Religions" (not "Abrahamic" religions) in this fo I'll let other, better spoken Baha'is comment more thoroughly about the connection, but let me assure you that as Baha'is we do "trace our lineage" as it were back through to Abraham. I was able to find this...

    Greetings All

    "Until very recently my wife and I have not been able to have theological discussions because she always felt I was attacking her beliefs. This was mostly because of my style of questioning which I like to think forces people to really think about why they believe what they believe."...

    As Salaamu Alaykum!

    I'm new here, too, Amir Shi'i and it's wonderful to "hear" the excitement in your voice about your conversion. It made my heart swell and gave me a smile. So, hello! :)

    In the short time we all have left :-

    Hello TEIN, I have to say, none of us are getting out of here alive, so I figure we might as well enjoy it while we can. :) I find it rather ironic that you and I came to this forum just about the same time. You're the ever pessimist and I'm the ever optimist (really, just ask!) :)

    Introductions All Around :)

    Warmest Greetings to Everyone, I've been lurking and posting on the Baha'i forum for a week or so now and only just got around to looking at some of the other forums. Ummmm...let's see; I'm 40 y.o. mom & wife. Raising 1 14 y.o. daughter & 1 12 y.o. son (gave a child up for adoption 20 years...

    Hello Muslimwoman, I've been reading these forums quite a bit lately, been posting some, too. I've seen your posts and have been impressed by your clarity of thought. I have some "personal" questions for you, if you don't mind? First (I saw this in your about me section), what is "Muslimah"...

    Some Baha'i Questions

    Can these forums be considered a source of (informal) deepening one's Faith, if, in fact, ones understanding of the Faith IS deepened?

    Some Baha'i Questions

    Another Baha'i question: how do we pray for the soul of a deceased person? I know the prayers reveled by The Bab, Baha'u'llah, and Abdul' Baha have special potency, and I know there are prayers for the dead (I think), but is there another way? Thanks...

    Why are we listed under "Modern Religions" (not "Abrahamic" religions) in this forum?

    Re: Why are we listed under "Modern Religions" (not "Abrahamic" religions) in this fo I realize that this is a very old thread, but I hope someone will notice; as a brand new member, I must admit that being a Baha'i, I looked under the Abrahamic religions section first and was very confused to...

    Some Baha'i Questions

    I recently read over the World Center's instructions on Pilgrimage and I have a few questions about this. I know that Baha'is are supposed to make a Pilgrimage at some point in their lives, but the World Center has it very regimented. I understand that it's an attempt to make Pilgrimage run...
