Do Baha’is Believe in Life After Death?

Do Baha’is Believe in Life After Death?

This is Part 4 of Asking Questions : Question: Do Baha’is have an idea of an afterlife? If so what does it consist of? The answer to this question – a very definite and emphatic yes – flows throughout the Baha’i writings. Baha’u’llah taught the existence of myriad “worlds of God”, including one we enter when we shed the physical form.  But Baha’is also believe that the next life isn’t something we’re supposed to concern ourselves about in such a way that it Read More
Iranian Baha’i Persecution – Is There Hope?

Iranian Baha’i Persecution – Is There Hope?

During this past week a few positive news reports from around the world seemed to indicate a potential shift in the ongoing persecution of the Baha’i Faith and its adherents in Iran. A senior Iranian cleric, Ayotollah Abdol-Hamid Masoumi-Tehrani, presented an artistically-illuminated calligraphic rendering of a passage from the writings of Baha’u’llah to the Baha’is of the world, in an unprecedented gesture of solidarity and sympathy for the persecuted Baha’is in his country. In a statement that accompanied his heartfelt Read More
Did God Create Other Life Forms?

Did God Create Other Life Forms?

This is Part 12 of How Do We Know God Exists? : In the last installment of this series of articles exploring the arguments for the existence of God, we took a look at the concept of the “finely-tuned universe,” which states that the universe must have been fine-tuned by a Creator in order for life to exist. But some scientists call this idea “carbon chauvinism,” saying that the finely-tuned universe theory only allows for carbon-based life as the sole possibility we Read More
Do Baha’is Believe in Hell?

Do Baha’is Believe in Hell?

This is Part 5 of Asking Questions : Question: If there is a “heaven” in Baha’i religion, how would you get there? Is there something you must do? Or is everybody able to enter it no matter what? Baha’u’llah teaches that the concepts of heaven and hell do not represent material places, but rather states of being that we can experience here in this physical world — and in the next life. Which of those conditions we inhabit depends entirely upon us, and Read More
The Myths of Faith

The Myths of Faith

This is Part 38 of Reconciling the Religions: Let’s consider the miracle stories in the Gospels. We have clear evidence that they grew more miraculous even in the small passage of time from when the Gospel of Mark was written (about 70 AD) to when Matthew and Luke were written (about 90 AD).  Mark’s gospel records that Jesus cursed a tree, and that when his disciples returned a day later they found that it had withered (Mk 11:1321). Just twenty years Read More
Giving the Devil His Due

Giving the Devil His Due

This is Part 1 of The Devil His Due : It is incumbent upon every man of insight and understanding to strive to translate that which hath been written into reality and action… – Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 250. [With this story, told in six parts, BahaiTeachings.org publishes our first short fiction. THE DEVIL HIS DUE, originally published in Amazing Stories, and reprinted in I LOVED THY CREATION, a collection of short fiction, has nothing to do with the Read More
