Re: Drinking alcohol

Erikl- Excellent source of questioning. I don't have any quotes for you at this time, but know that being a Baha'i is between you and God. If you accept the word of Baha'u'llah for this day, and try to live your life by his teachings, you are a Baha'i. You don't have to do what anybody else tells yo...

Also, I was hoping to stimulate a discussion...

Masturbation and sex in the Baha'i Faith

Allah'u'Abha friends, After living most of my life following whatever impulses came to me, about two years ago I decided to embrace my faith. Since then I have become active in my community in many ways and feel as though I have grown significantly. However, although I feel like I have conquered my ...

Re: The Number 23

While mathematics are the building blocks of the universe, you can find interesting relationships and patterns in ALL numbers if you look hard enough into them. While I don't know whether to classify numerology as superstition yet, the idea that numbers all have separate powers and significances is ...

Re: Last Prophet?

Hello all, It truly is uplifting to see people utilizing the internet to communicate real ideas and learnings from all over the world. So often you see the bounty of this technology perverted for the sake of material gains and pleasure, but I feel this is truly a beautiful corner of the web. Just to...

Re: Tablet of the Holy Mariner

Thank you for that link! I was under the impression that there was a whole other section to the tablet which remained untranslated, but I may have been mistaken, and perhaps it was simply the Persian tablet which remained unknown to me. The Persian writing is indeed largely different in language, bu...

Re: What's everyone reading right now?

Thank you for posting that first excerpt. EXTREMELY insightful. With school in full swing, it's all I can do to read Gleanings every night and every morning. The last book I read was Release the Sun, and I would like to read more William Sears. I've also heard good things about the recent "Gate...

Re: I love the show american idol

Here is a look into the future by a messenger of god- My name is Solomon Azar-I am the messiah I truly believe your heart is in the right place Mr. Azar, but for you to insult my faith as weak for attempting to thoroughly and independently investigate the truth, you demonstrate a lack of understand...

Re: I love the show american idol

Mr. Azar, Upon hearing your theories, I am excited and yet skeptical. With my limited understanding of Physics and Chemistry, I really have no way of knowing whether what you are saying is credible or not. What is clear to me is that the world IS facing a potential energy crisis, and you seem authen...

Re: Healing Prayer

I would think Shogi Effendi is referencing the Long Healing Prayer when he is talking about prayers endowed with a special significance, largely because when it is classified in a prayer book, the Long Healing Prayer is categorized as "The Long Healing Prayer", given a separate title disti...

Tablet of the Holy Mariner

Allah' u 'abha friends, I was recently studying the Tablet of the Holy Mariner and was greatly shaken and somewhat troubled by what I read and interpreted from it. It is a prayer endowed with a special significance, and I have a deep respect and fascination with it. When I referenced the Baha'i libr...
