greatest name

When reciting the Greatest Name to ourselves during the day, in times of trouble etc, should we say Ya Bahá'u'l Abhá or Alla'u'Abha, or are the two entirely interchangeable ? I have searched the Writings to try to find a definitive answer. The Guardian confirms that Alla'u'abha is a greeting but als...

Re: Paid functions in the Faith

Thanks Brett - also do you know if it is true that the faith does not accept government grants / money that are given to other religious organisations ? (certainly lots of grant money is dished to organisations

Paid functions in the Faith

Do any Baha'is (e.g. universal house of justice members, NSA members) receive payment for their service ? if so do we know how much or what is the basis for payment ? I am currently teaching someone who is innately suspicious of members of religious organisations who make money so it would be useful...

Re: un-translated writings

Thank you Brett - I ask because a few Baha'i I have met have a vague idea that some writings are kept back because it has been decided that we are "not ready" to hear them yet. I think this issue can play to the "conspiracy theorist" In us, so it would be nice to be informed enou...

un-translated writings

1) Have all the writings held at the BWC been read by scholars / Bahais or are their contents literally unknown and still lying in a big pile ? 2) Who decides what is next to be translated and made known to the Baha'i world and what is the basis for that ? 3) Could the un-translated writings contain...

Darwin loss of faith

I read that Charles DARWIN lost his Christian faith partly as a result of learning about the ichoumonidae wasp, whose eggs are laid in a live host caterpillar, and then hatch and eat the host alive. Apparently he could not accept a God that could invent something so cruel. Are such issues addressed ...
