What I have learned so far…….

So I have looked it up online and discovered it is the 2nd biggest religion in the world, right after christianity. I have also learned that no one I have talked to has heard of it…….I don’t know what that signifies but it is a little weird……..

It is a monotheistic religion, and one of the worlds youngest established religions ( Meaning it is recognized as a religion worldwide). It got its start in Iran in 1844, where its first leaders and followers were imprisoned and presucted for their beliefs. http://www.bahai.us/history

Their belief is that all monotheistic religion is right and theirs is just a more evolved path to God. The belief in unity is through out their faith, unity of all mankind no matter what their race, sex, or faith is, they see us as one family under God.

They have Messengers of God who come down to speard God’s message to his people. Messengers of God have been, Krishna, Moses,Buddha,Jesus, Mohammed and Baha’u’llah being the most recent.

They belief that religion and science work together to help humanity. It is not possible for something to be scientifically false and religiously true. When this happens the religious belief is dismissed as false or superstitions and the scientific belief is true. I think this translates into that God is leading the scientists to make discoveries.

So far they have been very open about their faith and giving lots of info, both online and through good old fashion snail mail. I’m hoping it continues to be pleasant, cause I still have a lot to learn. This is just the beginning, I am definitely going to research more on the science part, it really intrigues me.

“So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth” ~ Baha’u’llah
