Why I left the Bahai Faith? True Story…

This was one post which I got on my FaceBook page. I thought it would be interesting to share…

Some days ago,I dropped out of the Bahai – Faith and now,I’d like to share my decisions,so I don’t want to run the faith down but just to use my freedom of speech.(God bless Democracy)
Well,I think we don’t need a new world order but just a new view on it and a new way of acting which is based on ethics.Democracy is best because it allows itself to get better.
-The house of justice is regarded infallable.Well,no one is infallable,neither the Pope nor the nine guys in UHJ (Yes,women are not allowed in UHJ and we are comforted with the reason “It will be clear like the midday sun one day”)
-There is just a small path between a covenant breaker and someone who just tells his/her own opinion(Which is actually a right for Bahais but many were excommunicated for critizising Bahai)
-Bahai Faith is not save from splittings: there are reform – and orthodox Bahais.Of course,they are regarded as covenant breakers which are not true,but ain’t that the same with Catholics/Protestants or Shiites/Sunnites?
-In Bahai Faith it is said that every manifestation foretold two persons: His direct follower (f.e. Jesus foretold Muhammad) and Bahaullah but every prophecy regarded to Jesus are taken for Bahaullah so there are none left for Jesus.
-Jesus tells in the Gospel of John,he won’t return in a person but in the Holy Ghost(which already happened on Pentecost and will happen step by step in future)Jesus freed us from the chains of following rules of God…but Bahaullah brought new rules.
-Why should God send us a new revelation though the old one didn’t embrace the world?It would make sense if God waited with a new revelation till the old one increased 100%.
-In the Iqan,Bahaullah judges Jews for they want to spread the Mosaic Law over the world…but ain’t that the purpose for evey religion? And why does he warn everyone who doesn’t want to follow him or wants to go back from him though he also tells everyone to choose is own truth.
The Aqdas can be read as a secular Law Book and it can’t mess with the Bible…It’s not really inspiring or exalted.
I don’t need to be Bahai to love the world,its religions or cultures for the Bible tells me,too.
Nevertheless,I keep contact with my Bahai community for I had a nice time which I don’t want to give up.I also would like to be engaged in childrens classes and I also like the fact that there’s no clergy and that everyone can say a prayer in their assemblies.
Now,I’m really happy to have returned to my Biblical background.
