Im not really to sure, I am not the person to ask maybe start a thread with that as a question not many people comment on my threads because my questions are repetitive, but the writings generally are confusing to me and very hard to comprehend.What is hard to understand is how Abdu'l-Baha contradicts himself:
Is this Revelation based upon justice or kindness towards ALL? I wish someone would make up their minds.
As far as I have ever known, the Baha'i Faith is not the same as Christianity; forgive them for they know not what they do was Christianity. This is a New Day of God and Justice must prevail. It is not Justice to allow people to abuse you and take advantage of you. I never saw any Writings of Baha'u'llah that said we should love everyone regardless of what they do. It was Abdu'l-Baha who said that.
Abdu'l-Baha clearly contradicts himself in what I boldened in the following quotes.
“You must manifest complete love and affection toward all mankind. Do not exalt yourselves above others, but consider all as your equals, recognizing them as the servants of one God. Know that God is compassionate toward all; therefore, love all from the depths of your hearts … be filled with love for every race, and be kind toward the people of all nationalities. Never speak disparagingly of others, but praise without distinction. Pollute not your tongues by speaking evil of another. Recognize your enemies as friends, and consider those who wish you evil as the wishers of good. … Act in such a way that your heart may be free from hatred. Let not your heart be offended with anyone. If some one commits an error and wrong toward you, you must instantly forgive him. … Turn all your thoughts toward bringing joy to hearts.” – Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 453.“O ye beloved of the Lord! The Kingdom of God is founded upon equity and justice, and also upon mercy, compassion, and kindness to every living soul. Strive ye then with all your heart to treat compassionately all humankind—except for those who have some selfish, private motive, or some disease of the soul. Kindness cannot be shown the tyrant, the deceiver, or the thief, because, far from awakening them to the error of their ways, it maketh them to continue in their perversity as before. No matter how much kindliness ye may expend upon the liar, he will but lie the more, for he believeth you to be deceived, while ye understand him but too well, and only remain silent out of your extreme compassion.” Selections From the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 158I cannot consider the man who has filed a vicious lawsuit against me, a man who is a liar and a con-man, as my friend. Show me where Baha'u'llah said I should do that.
One thing I do know is Abdul Baha was The Master, and he can never be wrong, but understanding these things are very frustrating to me, so I dont have any answers, just a lot more questions which I wish I could ask Abdul Baha. I hope you find your answer
