First of all teaching has more to do with the spirit in which it is done than the information. The fact remains that you still have not answered my question as to how many people have become Baha'is on account of your teaching methods and it is a contradiction to say that this is a proven method when you yourself are not a Baha'i. You can call yourself a Baha'i, but a Baha'i is not just a person who believes in Baha'u'llah. A Baha'i makes no distinction between belief in Baha'u'llah and absolute obedience to His institutions. And where are your fruits? I have successfully taught a number of Evangelical Christians and I didn't do it by preaching, as you like to say in contrast to teaching, them about race unity ect. I did it by the grace of Baha'u'llah alone. We are week and poor and it is only by His power and wealth that others are bestowed with is bounties through us, so I'm not interested in your attachments to fanatical mentalities. I have taught many different kinds of people and I can tell you that those who eventually opened up and recieved the bounties of Baha'u'llah did so because of the proofs as they are presented in the authoritative writings, in Baha'u'llah's Life and in His Covenant, but most of all because they saw no contridiction between what was being presented by the presenter. The good book says, "Ye shall know them by their fruits." So what are your fruits?
