Re: baha'i writings addressing pornography specifically?

Brett, I agree that I could become misled by my own thinking if I don't adhere to the Writings of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah. I also see that even my deepest spiritual experiences are but my subjectivity, and thereby, sometimes believe that my soul is mere subjectivity, having no objective truth. Y...

Re: Next Manifestation of God

Hasan, it is easy for a Bahai to see how a Messenger may come in the future and add new and interesting things as well as bring up things that have happened before. I too believe that the 1000 years will come around like clockwork, and not in say 1100 years. Moreover, it could be a woman, and the Me...

Re: baha'i writings addressing pornography specifically?

Brett, I do have to say that your comments with quotations about how personal spiritual experiences are not to be taken as fact but rather imagination has added to my test of my faith in God. But after coming across this quote below, I do have to say that saying personal experiences are not infallib...

Re: "Sex" in the next world.

I think too that sex is given a lot of concentration in society. Even in private practices of many Baha'is. But as the Buddha taught, the first meditative ecstasy is cessation of desire, which is just the first step of nine, so I know I have a lot of work to do.

Re: "Sex" in the next world.

Oh, I found it. It's #689 of my Lights of Guidance edition: There is no teaching in the Baha'i Faith that 'soul mates' exist. What is meant is that marriage should lead to a profound friendship of spirit, which will endure in the next world, where there is no sex, and no giving and taking in marriag...

Re: "Sex" in the next world.

I've also propagated the idea of no sex in the next world, but I can't find the actual verse. Could anyone find it?

Re: Next Manifestation of God

62. Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years ¶37 The Dispensation of Bahá’u’lláh will last until the coming of the next Manifestation of God, Whose advent will not take place before at least “a full thousand years” will have elapsed. Bahá’u’llá...

Re: Next Manifestation of God

Where do you get Baha'u'llah's ascension marking the 1000 year period, this is innovation and not in the Writings. Both the lunar and solar years are to be counted from the period of the Siyah-Chal. On another note, I dreamed that I was talking about the end times in a dream and gave the year 3319 A...

Re: baha'i writings addressing pornography specifically?

Brett, I feel the same way. These posts take a lot out of me sometimes. Concerning interpretation, in the Commentary on the Surah of the Sun by Baha'u'llah, it reads: Those who wrote commentaries on the Qur'an fell into two sorts. The first neglected the literal sense in favor of an esoteric exegesi...
