Re: Soceity of Friends

I do not think there is any connection between the Society of Friends (Quakers) or the Ishraqis (Illuminationists) of Persia; who themselves were heavily influenced by the Brethren of Purity; an Ismaili group (Seveners not Twelvers). George Fox did not "study" to find out what a Verse of m...

THE GARDEN OF EDEN STORY: Myth of Metaphor?

The Fundamentalist Christian View: Six thousand years ago God planted a garden somehwere in the Middle East. and the rivers Tigris, Euphrates, somehow flowed from it. The continents were all together in one land-mass (the Earth not becoming separated until the time of Peleg). There were no great mo...

INFALLIBILITY?

Many of the Baha'is have told me that 'Abdu'l-Baha was "infallible". But He was not. He once said that under the Law of Moses the hand of a thief could be cut off, but that was never a part of the law of Moses (it is actually a Quranic law), and never was part of any Jewish practice. Many ...

Re: Article says 'Abdu'l-Baha was the Soul of Jesus returned

Bruce, The article does not claim that 'Abdu'l-Baha thought He was Christ, but rather the "WORD". There is a differnce. Jesus Christ was composed of two Beings: the Christ (called the Father or Holy Spirit) and the WORD (called the Son). Jesus said "The Father is in me, and I am in th...

Re: "SERVANT OF GLORY" film as way to produce entry-by-troops

Brent, Sorry, I don't "buy" the argument that the infalliblity of the House is conferred upon the Office of the Secretariat. I once had a letter from the Secretariat that said that Muhammad did not have more wife than one, because that was against the Law of God. But, the person who wrote ...

Re: Does anyone know what this story means?

Brett, That is not what the story is saying, that 'Abdu'l-Baha was perfectly expressing the "Faith" of Jesus. The story was identifying 'Abdu'l-Baha "as" Jesus. The Bab wrote that Mollah Husayn Bushuri was the "return" of the Prophet Muhammad. Yet, Mollah Husayn was not...

Re: "SERVANT OF GLORY" film as way to produce entry-by-troops

Brett, I wouldn't put too much into what a secretary wrote. I wish you extremely well in your endeavors, but if, as it seems you might be wishing to do, we are not to portray 'Abdu'l-Baha or even the Guardian (or other members of the Holy Household as I also recall reading) in art: ...an examination...

Does anyone know what this story means?

This is a story recounted by H.M. Balyuzi in his book "'Abdu'l-Baha". Please tell me what it means: " At home her little daughter had asked her what she would do should the Lord Jesus return to the world. She would rush to seek Him, she had said, only to be told [by her child] that &q...

"SERVANT OF GLORY" film as way to produce entry-by-troops

Suggestion: A two-hour film be produced on the life of 'Abdu'l-Baha titled "Servant of Glory". There would be a number of flashbacks, including the executing of The Bab (NOT showing His Holiness), persecutiong of Babis and Baha'is in Iran, etc. The actor must have blue eyes or wear blue co...

How did Adam enter our world? Was He born or not?

'Abdu'l-Baha said: "If being without a father is a virtue, Adam is greater and more excellent than all the Prophets and Messengers, for He had neither father nor mother." (Some Answered Questions, p. 89) "O handmaid of God! It is with the Lord Christ even as with Adam. Did the first h...

Does any sexual activity negatively effect our Afterlife?

Baha'is,

Is there any sexual activity, any at all, that would negative effect us in the Afterlife?
