What did Jesus come down to Earth to do????

What was Jesus' "mission"? The New Testament says it was to atone for the sins of mankind. Baha'is say it was to "unite cities"(?). I ask Baha'is what they meant? Alexander the Great united cities and countries. So did the Roman legions. John Adams of Massachusetts help "uni...

Re: Do the souls of the Prophets and Chosen Ones reincarnat

Bruce, I would have to disagree with you, strongly. 1) WHERE in the Book of Certitude does it say reincarnation is not true? 2) 'Abdu'l-Baha, in "Some Answered Questions" says that "human souls" do not return to this planet. The souls of the Prophets are not "human". Th...

Re: Should Baha'i Funds be used to support CEDAW

To follow the NSA "for the sake of Unity" and not condemn their violations of Baha'i principles, would be like if the NSA said "ok, slavery is good" and then NOT saying anything. YOU like what they are doing. That is why you are not complaining. The absolute HYPOCRISY is disgusti...

Should Baha'i Funds be used to support CEDAW

CEDAW is the "Convention for the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women"; an international treaty. Article 12 of CEDAW says that women must have the right in family planning, specifically to "limit the number" of children. This means abortion on demand. Every court that has ...

The Bab and Shoghi Effendi on Abortion

Abbas, Shaykism is not a religion, but a school of Shi'ite Islaam. Shaykh Ahmad al-Asai was a Muuhaadaath (Seer), and so was Siyyid Kazim Rashti. They had visions from Muhammad and the Imaams.
