It might also be observed that 'Abdu'l-Baha had used military terminology in his addresses in the West before the Guardian to convey the sense of a righteous "army" of followers obeying commands to acheive "victory". Indeed, Christianity has used such allegorical terminology (i.e. "Onward Christian Soldier").
