Is everything black and white? Or is there a little gray here and there?

In the relative world, all things are grey.
Nobody can tell who is good and who is bad.
It is not possible to tell which nation is right and which is wrong.
Man’s thinking changes constantly, hence it is impossible to tell who is saint and who is sinner, especially when we are still alive.
Perhaps, only each man can see whether he is black, white or grey at the moment. He may not know in advance his condition at his last breath.
That is why, we cannot pass individual judgment on other people. In the civilized world today, we are establishing institutions to make relatively trustful observations.
Most human relations cannot be made based on physical appearances and rigid laws. We need more education and more mutual trust based on human dignity. And this trust is also relative.
In higher civilization, we will have broader faith among noble human beings.

Shoghi Effendi says:
It should also be borne in mind that, great as is the power manifested by this Revelation and however vast the range of the Dispensation its Author has inaugurated, it emphatically repudiates the claim to be regarded as the final revelation of God’s will and purpose for mankind. To hold such a conception of its character and functions would be tantamount to a betrayal of its cause and a denial of its truth. It must necessarily conflict with the fundamental principle which constitutes the bedrock of Bahá’í belief, the principle that religious truth is not absolute but relative, that Divine Revelation is orderly, continuous and progressive and not spasmodic or final.
