I can understand not only your search but your question as well. I was raised
in the Episcople Church so there is very little doctrinal difference
between what I grew up with and the issues you are dealing with now. All
I can say is that, as I began my investigation into the Baha'i Faith,
I learned to do something I had not been taught in the Church. I learned
to listen to my heart as well as to my head in this matter of spiritual
It sounds like you have done a great deal of research already. Please let
me recommend a couple of other source you might want to look at. These
are sources I have used both personally and in facilitating a 2 month
course on creating a Christian/Baha'i Dialogue. The first is a series of
very informative but easily read books by Michael Sours. It is the
"Christian Dialgoue Series" and it deals specifically with the issues
you seem to be trying to deal with right now. The other is Gary
Mathews' book, "He Cometh with the Clouds" (it might be He Walketh with
the Clouds -- Sorry, I don't have the book in front of me.).
Please feel free to contact me or any of the Baha'i informational e-mail
addresses that most of the Baha'i Web sites have.
Much success in your search,
: Hi there!
: I'm a woman who's in search for the truth. I am a christian-background person whose life has been touched by Tahirih inmensly.
: I have been searching for the truth in the Baha'i claims of Baha'u'lah as the christ expected, etc. I think that what I'm looking for through this message
: is for someone's help in the issue of Christianity and Baha'is. Even though I read the Tablets, "thief in the Night", Tahirih's book, etc. It is difficult for my
: western-catholic-baptist-programmed mind to see in Baha'u'lah the Jesus Christ that has been in my mind and life for all these years.
: Is there anybody out there that perhaps relates to this and may be willing to address the issue to me and perhaps for me get some guidance?
: Thank you very much for your help.
