PostSubject: The Baha'i Faith Mon Aug 04, 2014 11:51 am

The Bahá'í Faith
" The Bahá'í Faith (Arabic: بهائية‎ Baha'iyyah) /bəˈhaɪ/) is a monotheistic religion emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind. Three core principles establish a basis for Bahá'í teachings and doctrine: the unity of God, that there is only one God who is the source of all creation; the unity of religion, that all major religions have the same spiritual source and come from the same God; and the unity of humanity, that all humans have been created equal, and that diversity of race and culture are seen as worthy of appreciation and acceptance. According to the Bahá'í Faith's teachings, the human purpose is to learn to know and love God through such methods as prayer, reflection and being of service to humanity." - Wikipedia

I grew up around this religion. My Grandmother, essentially, forced it on us ever since I was a little kid. It's, basically, unknown in comparison with the three major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. But it's of the same leveling spirit.

The Bahá'í Faith was founded by Bahá'u'lláh in 19th-century Persia:



After Bahá'u'lláh's death, under the leadership of his son, `Abdu'l-Bahá, the religion spread from its Persian and Ottoman roots, and gained a footing in Europe and America, and was consolidated in Iran, where it suffers intense persecution.



I remember going to Bahai gatherings. It mostly consisted of liberal-democrat types.
We would have to repeat the Prophet's names countless times after reciting one of their prayers. Sometimes, we would repeat the mantra " YAH - Bahaullah - Pah! " ( means God bless Bahaullah, or something of that sort ) about 90 times with long, spaced out pauses in between! Clever attempt to brainwash the younger members.

I recall my grandmother mentioning how one of the prophets promoted the formation of united nation ( UN ).



Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! I beseech Thee...
I am he, O my Lord, that hath set his face...
Thou seest me, O my Lord, with my face turned...
Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! Every time...
Lauded be Thy name, O my God...
O God our Lord!
Praise be unto Thee, O Lord.
I beg Thee to forgive me, O my Lord...
Glory be unto Thee, O God.
I am aware, O Lord...
O Thou forgiving Lord!
O holy Lord!

Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succour in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

- Bahá’u’lláh

I recently met a pure blooded Aryan girl, her parents from Iran, who practice the Baha'i faith.

I watched some douchebag literally stupify himself, bumble and stumble like a fool, due to how beautiful she is. I smirked watching the interaction unfold. Most men are dogs, stupid animals, who when introduced to something higher themselves, are surprised and don't know how to react to immense beauty. Nobility and pride become unveiled and too obvious during such encounters.

Well that is to be expected, no?

Beta males don't have the self-control of an alpha, thus they display their ineptness when in the presence of beautiful females.

Did you try to get with her?

No, however I would never turn her away or hesitate if she did make a sexual advance toward me.
Maybe next year...

You must have missed the part where I mentioned she is nobility.

She piques my interest in Iranian Persian culture. I want to investigate the roots of Aryanism.

I recommend that you be more aggressive next time.

How did you two meet?

If she chooses me then I'm a lucky man.
I cannot go into detail without giving out personal info.

I am in the medical industry. There is a Bahá'í that proselytizes(prostitutes?) this religion every time I see her. She is Iranian and moved to Canada to escape persecution. She lives here now because she prefers it and goes back to Canada every couple of months to renew her ability to practice medicine.

Rare that your grandmother should be a Bahá'í Erik, since its mostly Iranians. Its the same shit as the rest of the monotheisms though. I would say...like christinized islam.

My Grandma leans to the far Left. I guess Christianity is just too Right-wing for her taste. Something more cosmopolitan was needed...

If she is a pure-blooded Aryan then I am an Eskimo sitting in an igloo. All indo-europeans bare the trace of them but they are not pure any more. Iranians like to claim this.

Do I detect jealousy or fear?

Just because you are not pure blooded aryan, doesn't mean others are not as well....

You detect neither, I'm caucasian/white/european if you were wondering.

To save the trouble of semantic merry-go-rounds I'll say that Aryans conquered and assimilated peoples and left their genetic markers. I admit I may be mistaken in this regard but Iranians are less Aryan then say Greeks or Slavs even though Iran/ian is derived from Arya. I'm speaking of genetics not cultur or memes.

And how does that justify your doubt that Iranians have pure blooded aryans within them, through their persian ancestors?

The United Nations, World Trade Organization and the International Monetary Fund are pillars of the New World Order as is the Bahai Faith another New World Order religion.  Their basic principles are the "oneness" of world humanity and this is what the New World Order is about. The most damning of the basic goals of this Faith is the teaching that the foundation of all religions is one.  This is the core teaching of the New World Order, that everyone will worship the same God.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Muslims who follow Islam reject the Biblical Truth that God has a Son, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism all deny Jesus as the Christ.

One obvious example of the teaching of the Bahai Faith, at the expense of Biblical truth, is the practice of meaningless repetition in prayer.  

How can we have harmony in a New World unless World religions unit, and how is that going to happen?  Force and fear.

Yes, the NWO and Bahai faith are in bed with each other; this is, patently, true.

Force and fear are elements of, essentially, every religion.

What are your thoughts on William Lane Craig's cosmological argument for the existence of God?

Doesn't William Lane Craig base this argument on the parts of the Big Bang theory, something I do not ascribe to. There is presently, no proven theory of how we came into existence, however, the fine tuning of the universe that we perceive, strengthens my belief that the universe and life are the result of an intentional, intelligent act by a vastly superior intelligence.

The Jesuit motto, "give me a child until he is seven and I will show you the man", have you come out "unscathed" or has this faith had a significant impact on you, which you now embrace?

To address the WLC thing first, yes - he does base his KCA on the big bang theory.

In regards to your second question, it's possible that the Bahai faith has had an effect on my former theistic inclinations. I was never, really, a devout Bahai, or one at all, to be frank. I did believe in some sort of higher power, so I suppose that one could have labeled me as a deist. I'm more of a quasi-pantheist now.
