    Good prayer to say with a group of Christians?

    I have organized a devotional dinner tonight with a group of Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) friends in Provo. Previous to my conversion to the Baha'i faith two months ago, I was part of their congregation. I will likely be moving out of the area this weekend and this will likely serve as a farewell...

    War. Huh. Yeah. What is it Good For??

    So, looking at the rhetoric being thrown around and some of the overt actions being either implemented and called for in the world, part of me strongly suspects that we'll soon be seeing the re-start of the Cold War. :( Which got me researching the subject of war in Baha'i writings. Which led...

    Quest for the Common Good

    Good morning The condition of the world today transcends any allegiance of nationality, religion, race, belief, culture and many more.

    Good morning

    Well, that opening should tell a few already who I am. It is wonderful to see the names that have known in other times and other places. Brief summary: became a Baha'i in 1971, been and done probably all the things a Baha'i normally does (both positive and those others we will term "learning...

    Why negativity is sometimes a good thing

    Hello everyone, I've decided to start sharing my significant spiritual realizations with the Baha'i forum to help spread understanding through the community I now consider myself a part of and to productively debate with people whose beliefs align with mine. I used to believe through logical...

    Dear Friends. Shall we receive Good at the hands of God...

    And shall we not receive evil? Job 2:10 I have found the book of Job very relvent and often times helpful in getting through difficult parts in my life where I can find absolutely no material solution. Not through prayer or doctors or any thing to find help to my difficulties...

    Is man's basic nature good?

    13. O SON OF SPIRIT! I created thee rich, why dost thou bring thyself down to poverty? Noble I made thee, wherewith dost thou abase thyself? Out of the essence of knowledge I gave thee being, why seekest thou enlightenment from anyone beside Me? Out of the clay of love I molded thee, how dost...

    Why Monasticism is good and Do Christians worship a false God?

    Reading through the bahai writings I came across a small portion by Abbas Effendi I believe, that or his father. That monasticism is something wrong and that monks should leave the monastery and I suppose I must ask why? What is wrong with monasticism when the monastic seeks to do what no bahai...

    Help make a good person.

    This is my perspective and mine only, I'm not aware of Baha'i teachings on what I'm about to write. Preferably it would be ideal to help folks realize and accept the newest teachings of God. But what if you know someone of an earlier teaching who can't see the new teachings. Can we then take...

    A few questions, I'm relatively new

    Sorry guys, I'm new to this site and wasn't sure which category to place this question in: I'm also relatively new to the Baha'i Faith. I was originally raised by my mother on Buddhism. But that didn't completely work for me. My friend Isabel told me about the Baha'i Faith, and I've been into...

    The Good Samaritan

    10:23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 10:24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not...

    Can we be good without God?

    An interesting lecture I found on the internet. It is not an explisively Christian perspective argued but a general theistic argument offered. I was interested when I mentioned that Atheists have no basis on which to say anything is right or wrong and the Bahai on this forum defended the...
