Religion is not a thing to use as a sacrifice.
Religion is not a thing to be forgotten.
Religion is not a thing to be possessed or lost.
Religion is not a label to bear or to throw away.
Religion is not a blind belief.
Religion is not a primitive superstition.
Religion is not a traditional sentiment.
Religion is not a theist congregation.
Religion is not what people know or imagine.
Religion is divine education from God
teaching man why and how they can love profoundly
and selflessly all mankind. This education is not
a physical heritage, it is truth perceived
and practiced sincerely by personal learning
through the Holy Books revealed by the successive
Divne Messengers of God, such as Buddha, Christ, Baha’u’llah….

Abdul-Baha says:

 “People have a superstitious respect for certain doctrines which are against science and the wise men of the country have thought that religion is opposed to science. Know thou that the great ethical foundation of knowledge is divine revelation and the basis of religion is reality itself. It is like unto the sun which shines on all things making them clear and luminous, whereas lesser lights as well as superstitious beliefs illumine but one aspect of things leaving room for shade and doubt.

“I have great confidence in the wisdom and understanding of the world leaders of thought that they may discover this reality.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 186)

HOW ABOUT INTERFAITH MARRIAGE?

Could you marry someone who had different religious beliefs than you

My religious belief does not build walls to separate
me from the rest of the human race, because it says:
in reality there is only One God, One Religion, One Mankind.
Any doctrines, ideologies, philosophies that cause divisions
among mankind are not worth believing, following or mentioning.
All men are born by the breath of the Holy Spirit,
therefore, they are all spiritual.
When they know and accept this truth, they are religious.
Religious is not entering an isolated circle, but to reach
out to all the children of God in love, respect and cooperation
to do the Will of God.
I believe that, as a human being, I am spiritual
and religious like all other beings. I see no separation
to any one even s/he denies the existence of God.
In history, many deniers have become great believers
like Saul becoming Saint Paul.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Reality does not admit of multiplicity although each of the divine religions is separable into two divisions. One concerns the world of morality and the ethical training of human nature. It is directed to the advancement of the world of humanity in general; it reveals and inculcates the knowledge of God and makes possible the discovery of the verities of life. This is ideal and spiritual teaching, the essential quality of divine religion and not subject to change or transformation. It is the one foundation of all the religions of God. Therefore the religions are essentially one and the same.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 274)

TURNING BAD THING INTO GOOD THING?

What bad thing do you wish you could turn into a good thing?

Ignorance.
I will turn all ignorant people into knowledgeable
by education. Yes, education for all.
Each and all human beings are born equally
with intelligence to develop into masters of
the world. Deprivation of education for the masses
throughout history is the biggest crime
of kings, emperors, priests, ruling class.
Now, with the Internet, let us get our knowledge
for a life of dignity, of freedom and of happiness.
Each and all should use knowledge to conduct
one’s own life without subordinating to anyone else.
Yes, we are all equal. The more we have knowledge,
the more we will truly become equal.

 “Partaking of knowledge and education is one of the requisites of religion. The education of each child is obligatory. If there are no parents, the community must look after the child. It is suggested that the childless educate a child.”

GREATEST INVENTION HAS YET TO COME?

Do you think the greatest invention of Mankind has yet to come?

Asked By: 4thdimensiondream (56-60, M) 48 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Oct 6th, 2012 at 8:53PM

Not yet.
The greatest one now is the Internet, the virtual world.
But it was invented when mankind was still immature,
divided, confusing.
The greatest invention of mankind will come after 2021,
that is after world peace, when all mankind truly cooperate
in building the Kingdom of God on earth. We will no longer
interest in the virtual world, but in the real spiritual world.
From then on we will understand what is the world of Revelation
and we healthily make our amazing journey in it.
Our so-called real world may expand to the whole solar system,
and our world of Revelation will be the complete immensity.
Blessed are the generations of man after 2021.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Universal peace is assured by Bahá’u’lláh as a fundamental accomplishment of the religion of God — that peace shall prevail among nations, governments and peoples, among religions, races and all conditions of mankind. This is one of the special characteristics of the Word of God revealed in this Manifestation.

Bahá’u’lláh declares that all mankind should attain knowledge and acquire an education. This is a necessary principle of religious belief and observance, characteristically new in this dispensation.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 455)

God does not give a new religion, He always
renews His eternal Cause from Age to Age,
for mankind to see the Divine Unity.
Religion is not a man-made religious association,
but the Divine Education, which is the source
of all learning and knowledge.
In order to recognize a philosophy, we must learn
to understand what is philosophy and read books
relating to it. For recognizing religion, we must also
read Holy Books brought down by the Messengers of
God and practice them. Hearsays, formalities, ceremonies
have nothing to do with religion.
All men are born with intelligence to independently
seek for the truth. True seekers will surely reach their goal.

2 things: 1. if this is true then explane to me why the bible disproves it self so often 2. philosophy is believing in a greater power or idea without a deity

Reply by pukirahe Oct 3rd, 2012 at 7:55PM

Denial of the civilizations founded by Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism… is clear proof of prejudice. No human learnings can lead to such glories. No deniers can give any arguments against the commands in the Holy Books.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Brighten our hearts, O my Lord, with the splendor of Thy knowledge, and illumine our sight with the light of such eyes as are fixed upon the horizon of Thy grace and the Day-Spring of Thy glory. Preserve us, then, by Thy Most Great Name, Which Thou didst cause to overshadow such nations as lay claim to what Thou hast forbidden in Thy Book. This, verily, is what Thou didst announce unto us in Thy Scriptures and Thy Tablets.”

Abdul-Baha says:

 

“Although to acquire the sciences and arts is the greatest glory of mankind, this is so only on condition that man’s river flow into the mighty sea, and draw from God’s ancient source His inspiration. When this cometh to pass, then every teacher is as a shoreless ocean, every pupil a prodigal fountain of knowledge. If, then, the pursuit of knowledge lead to the beauty of Him Who is the Object of all Knowledge, how excellent that goal; but if not, a mere drop will perhaps shut a man off from flooding grace, for with learning cometh arrogance and pride, and it bringeth on error and indifference to God.”

GOOD IDEA BEING MISUSED?

Has there ever been a good idea (based on good intentions), that has not been perverted or misused after some time?

Asked By: Spann0r (26-30, M) 14 minutes ago

It appears to me, that if you come up with something good, something to help people, at some point in time someone will find a way to twist it around and abuse it.

Posted by pukirahe Sep 30th, 2012 at 5:33PM

We are not omniscient.
Life is changing.
We are living in a relative world
with the mingling of light and darkness,
hence all truths are relative.
That is why we should not judge other people.
That is why we should not impose our ideal on the world.
That is why we should rethink our thinking….
Life harmony cannot be established by sage kings
and absolute obedient subjects,
but by free and frank consultations among all citizens.
At present, democracy + aristocracy + free press
seems preferable.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Consider whether there exists anywhere in creation a principle mightier in every sense than religion, or whether any conceivable power is more pervasive than the various Divine Faiths, or whether any agency can bring about real love and fellowship and union among all peoples as can belief in an almighty and all-knowing God, or whether except for the laws of God there has been any evidence of an instrumentality for educating all mankind in every phase of righteousness.

Those qualities which the philosophers attained when they had reached the very heights of their wisdom, those noble human attributes which characterized them at the peak of their perfection, would be exemplified by the believers as soon as they accepted the Faith.” (Abdu’l-Baha, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 83)

Truth is relative

Consultations most needed
