You are doing the Baha'is a service by pointing out the glaring contradictions between the
Jesus of the Bible and the "Jesus" that most Baha'is believe in (a prophet who came only to teach peace, tolerance, love, and to
"unite cities" (whatever that means). You are doing the Faith a service by pointing out the irreconcilable contradictions between
between what most Baha'is believe, and the Word of God. You do this, of course, because you believe that the Faith is false, Baha'u'llah
a false christ/false prophet, and the Baha'is deceived and on their way to an eternal Hell.
But, there is another possibility.
It is possible that the TRUE Baha'i Faith has the real Jesus, and adheres to the doctrines of the New Testament as much as any bible-
believing Christian! In fact, this is the case. The Faith was distorted by Unitarianism co-mingling with it in the 1920s and 30s; when thousands
of Unitarians came into it. Naturally, they interpreted the Faith according to "Unitarian" understandings:
*Jesus never raised from the dead. The tomb is full. Only His 'teachings' raised from the dead.
*All the Prophets suffer for humanity. Jesus' death wasn't an atonement, but just another martyrdom.
*Heaven and Hell don't really exist. All of us (Charles Manson/Hitler/Stalin/Ted Bundy) journey on into the
Worlds of God after death; all experiencing a fulness of joy and happiness; irregardless of our activities in this life.
*The purpose of Religion is merely to "improve the status of minorities and women" and achieve political and racial unity.
This is FALSE Baha'ism; not the true Teachings. The Faith must be interpreted NOT according to what the ignorant Western
Baha'is do, but according to Irfaniyyah (Mystical Islam). In Irfaniyyah, Jesus is the Son of God; Who died for the sins of the
World. In one Irfaniyyah book, Jesus takes a large bundle of clothes, then poors in all the dyes of all the colors He finds, mixes
it around, then takes the clothes out. The clothes should be multicolored. But they are all snow white (a miracle)! Jesus says, "This
is my mission--to cause the souls of men to become white." In Irfaniyyah, Jesus does raise from the dead (in an ethereal body), and the
tomb is empty. One of the greatest Irfaniyyah teachers of Shaykh Ahmad-i-Asa'i; who prophecied of The Bab and Baha'u'llah. The Bab
was one of the main disciples of Shaykh Ahmad's successor: Siyyid Kazim Rashti.
So, yes, keep up the good work! You'll get the Baha'is to start seeing the glaring contradictions, and begin to ask themselves
questions. The current Faith is nothing more than western Unitarianism mixed with Baha'i nomenclature. With your help, the true
Faith will emerge.
