First of all, since I am loyal to Jesus, I believe in the messengers that Jesus said would come. These include Muhammad and Baha’u’llah. It was Baha’u’llah who explained that there will be no conflict between true science and true religion. This makes me happy for several reasons–it will eliminate bad science and bad religion.
Bad religion includes some nut who has his followers drink poison when a comet flies overhead.
Bad science includes Darwin’s theory of evolution.
I am a high school science teacher, and I know about evolution. I know that it lacks scientific evidence, and I know there is scientific evidence against it. I refuse to teach evolution since it is wrong. There is politics and power mongering that corrupts science as well as religion. I think science comes from God as much as religion. When pressed, I would have to admit that parts of evolution are correct, but just because I can agree that the fittest of the species survive does not mean I can be fooled into the ludicrous possibility that one species can change into another. Likewise I can believe that the mother of Jesus was a virgin, but the rules of God’s creation mandate a need for sperm to have fertilized Mary’s egg. The bible tells us that this sperm came from the male line of King David-e.g. Joseph. (Would Joseph have married her were it not so?)
(See Romans 1:3)
The mistake in religion is to use the virgin birth as evidence that God is the father of Jesus which is blasphemous.
After the big war that is prophesied to come, there will be peace on earth. As prophecy is always fulfilled, as God never lies, this will come to pass despite the objections of any one. Though I do not look forward to the war, I look forward to the peace afterward and the knowledge that science and religion will not be in conflict. God gave me the gift of a brain, so can I not assume that I am to use it? I have faith in the Baha’i religion because it does not conflict with Jesus or Moses, or of Abraham, Isaac, King David, etc. In fact, there is only one religion that doesn’t disregard the promise that God gave to David in Psalm 89.
God doesn’t break His promises.
