Dear BW, Who is" Him Whom God shall make manifest"? You certainly reply " Bah'ullah." Why? according to which evidence? The Bab didn't formally appoint Baha'u'llah, but everyone around Baha'u'llah pretty much knew He was the chosen one, even before He made a formal announcement....

Brett, it's great to have you back! :smile: We definitely are in need of some able Baha'i spiritual soldiers at the moment! :veg: Might I ask you whether you have considered whether you possess some fear of God and have some humility to question whether it is in fact possible that what you are mocki...

Clear and logical argument you say? Your argument seems to have the same amount of leverage as the average Jack Chick Tract. No really, it was using the same style of tactics. Try to convince people to believe in something by using an arugmnet that could only be relevant to somebody who is already ...

Also, as far as "seeing" and "meeting"; the key to understanding the significance of Scriptural terms is often not found in the dictionary. For example, what does Jesus mean by "seeing" when He says "blessed are your eyes for they see"? He is actually talking...

Abbas is NOT here to convert Baha'is, he has shown a great eagerness to learn, and has a Baha'i girlfriend. I find it quite appalling of the intolerance of his beliefs. He should be able to come here just to learn without people trying to convert him (which I have gotten the impression people are d...

Another great and insightful post, Loren! Thanks a lot for your comments. How could anyone literally meet God? Literally? Is God a created thing with a body and a physically reality that can be "met?" Since I think we all agree the answer is "no," in a physical sense the only wai...

:roll: Here we go again........ 1. Bahais also have sects and orginated from a covenant breaker sect known as the Shaykhi. They were not covenant breakers we believe. You are free to believe what you want. 2. The Infallible Prophet Muhammad(a.s) and the Ahlulbayt(a.s) were the interpreters of the Q...

As far as I know, Shoghi Effendi and 'Abdu'l-Baha never spoke about it. You have to use assumptions (or logic) to understand what He is saying. Again, Abbas, a lot of the stuff I say I'm not making up. A Baha'i scholar, Dr. Christopher Buck, has spoken about this in his book Symbol and Secret, which...
