Chicago Tribune Bahai Faith Discussion

There is a very interesting, and heated, discussion about the Wilmette Baha’i lawsuit against the BUPC, over the right to use the word “Baha’i” in our teaching efforts. I am sure you will find some good Baha’i q&a here:

Tribulation Study Matthew 24

A guest has asked for an interpretation of the Tribulation Bible verse in Matthew in the Gospel?

I’ve been travelling and there has been some comment discussion as I had already asked before I departed for travel, what others thought the verse means. Finally, I am getting to this. Thank you for your patience, I will annotate my answers in <> as I edit this original post. ‘Abd’ul-Baha said there are 72 two meanings to every verse. This is what I believe the tribulation verses mean. I’ll start with the verses, then explain them:

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:29-31

Immediately after the tribulation <Tribulation is same as a test or oppression> Read the rest of this entry »

Bahai Hands Of The Cause

I was milling through some stuff that I thought was lost after my last move and I found this article I wrote back in 1995. It is pretty good stuff and really, really digs into the authority, or lack there, of the Hands of the Cause under the guardianship of Shoghi Effendi.

I hope you enjoy the read. Feel free to talk about it in the blog thread also. Here is the link to:
The Authority Of The Hands.

Peace
