Can't find any other refrence to their establishment in Persia 1000 years ago. Abdulbaha says they have written many books over the years. Can anyone list a refrence to any ...

Re: Some questions about the faith

Hi TheCatLady, With regard to your last comments about sex, one thing you should know is we are all horrible sinners here. Each one of us fails to live up to all that is required by God from us in his books. God has not sent down his Manifestations to create turmoil in our lives from our lack of abi...

Re: Request for help with Ruhi material

Hi Loren,

I have looked into the matter and BritishBahai is correct, the Ruhi materials are not available in electronic format. If you would permit me I will acquire any learning materials you need and send them to you at any location you desire.

J.F.A.

Re: Freemason & Baha'i

I guess I still puzzled by your insistance on being a Mason. So far, the positives you have mentioned are found in the Baha'i Faith, except for the level of organization. I can see that one would be attracted to a formalized and working structure that is already accomplishing good deeds, and that o...

Freemason & Baha'i

tawna: The Bethel we went to refused to acknowledge the depths of the Christian Symbols they revered. I made all the appropiate questions to the proper members of the Bethel and was assured there were no over Christian symbols ... then we saw the closing ... We politely asked to have our daughters r...

Freemason & Baha'i

:!: I never knew about that. All this time, I thought that being a majority member of Job's Daughters might come in handy in case whoever I marry decides that he wants to become a Mason. (A man lacking Masonic heritage can become a Mason if he marries a former Job's Daughter.) I guess I can kiss th...

Progressive Revelation ?'s

Man wasn't ready for the knowledge God had to pass to us, thus some were blessed with the wittings of one Messenger and some another. Knowing that this Day is the progression from Adam to Baha-u-llah I, personally, feel doubly blessed. Another thousand millennium needs to pass before the same blessi...

Freemason & Baha'i

Ok originally I erroneously stated both sources, I meant The Guardian and Abdul Baha and have since found (as you have shown) The Universal House. I know their statements, made 30 plus years ago. I have made progress for the Faith in the Masons. I am unclear as to how being a Mason would confuse any...

Mecca / Medina : Baha'i Rights

Ok, I find that somewhat hopeful. And with Iran recognizing Israel we seem to be making progress in SOME area. It is just a longing to visit those history places marked by the Messengers. Or to put it directly... I want to go... I want to go... I want to go... I want to go... I want to go... I want ...

RE: Rumor on Freemason WAS:Freemason & Baha'i

... Freemasons give a lot to charitable organizations, and that they are family-centered. Very true. I had no idea how much the Mason's gave and did ... I was astounded. And as far as family centered: No denying it, beyond focusing on YOUR family, as a Mason you focus on ALL families. They even hav...

Mecca / Medina

No Baha'i may visit Mecca or Medina. We believe in Mohommad and the writtings, we believe in progressive revelation, in the bible and the toras. We don't get to go because we believe in a Faith that comes after Muslim. Thus we are worse the heretics to the Muslims, we are covenant breakers. I just w...

Mecca / Medina

Ok, [wince], I want to visit Mecca and Medina and I believe that by Muslim law (since we believe in Mohomad, yes it is a reach) Baha'is should have that ability. The Black Muslim community earned that right so I know it is possible. Any thoughts (I know about the Baha'i struggles in Iran, I have not...

Barb, thanks for the thoughtful reply. Yes I did take it a little far but I did it to illistrate that these things can get out of hand. As far as how the Masons used to be, then should a used to stop an action of today? The Boy Scouts used to prevent non-Christians from joining, should we now refrai...

It seems we deviate. 1) The Faith is growing, growth does not occur equally in humans, or thier need to grasp beliefs. 2) Pray 3) See #2 4) Yes there can be issues people have, some can see corruption where not exists and some purity where corruption exists. Concerning your desire to fill that spiri...

Freemason & Baha'i

I have read both sources reguarding this topic. I have come to understand a few sides to this issue. I know what the Guardian says. He basically said that a Baha'i should not be a Mason due to the secreative nature and exclusion nature (not admining woman in some states) of the organization of the M...
