Re: UHJ mentioned in KitabAdqdas (quote = for cov.breakers)

The problem with the Remey followers is that they by and large did not understand Persian or Arabic, especially not Remey himself, nor his inner circle. (I will get to why that is relevant momentarily). The generation of his following developed largely as a sort of an ethnic reactionary sentiment in...

Re: Sihaq

Oh no, my question is not what Sihaq means. Some websites I looked at already confirmed that. My question is does that aforementioned Tablet actually say "sihaq?" I ask this because all I have is the English translation, which has been translated to "lechery" (which is broad). Th...

Sihaq

So basically I remember reading a long time ago in a Baha'i forum (or several) that in a Tablet from Baha'u'llah where it is said, "Ye are forbidden to commit adultery, sodomy and lechery. Avoid them, O concourse of the faithful." translated in a letter from the Universal House of Justice,...

Baha'i Laws not compulsary on Non-Baha'i's

Often when discussing "hot button" issues of Baha'i laws, I find myself constantly trying to explain that the Baha'i laws are only for Baha'i's. This is clear from the first paragraph of the Aqdas. That is, that given the inseparable twin duties, one cannot be following the laws without ac...

Dear Keyvan, There are a number of articles on the Baha'i Faith and Mormonism which you should read (two in World Order and one in the Journal of Baha'i Studies). In them, you will see that a pilgrim reported that Shoghi Effendi called Joseph Smith a "seer" (which does not mean Manifestat...

Prophecy-Fulfilled website on BCI - very bad

In my opinion this site is absolutely awful. The guy who created it obviously is one of a small batch of Baha'i's who has this fanatical appreciation of the notion that Mormonism somehow has some legitimacy in the Baha'i Faith - an idea which is completely unsupported by any Baha'i text.

Apocalypto (the Mel Gibson movie)

So I just watched the Mel Gibson movie Apocalypto, and for anyone who has seen it, its clear that the movie's themes are very parallel to Baha'i teachings. That is, the whole emphasis of Apocalypse meaning the coming of a new beginning, led by mankind's self-destruction, and not a supernatural "...
