Ask any Bahai these two questions…

The Baha’i Faith is indeed a strange religion. The more I study it, the more I am amazed at its level of duplicity and intent to deceive people. Let me explain this.

You know there are those kinds of people who like to please everyone. And they will say anything – right or wrong to ensure that people like them or that they don’t lose their appeal. Sure, for some time we like them. But then their “sweetness” starts getting to you. Over a period of time, this “sweetness” starts getting sickening. You then want them to come clean in discussions, when it comes to giving their opinions and speak the right thing. You want them to speak the facts and not what people want to hear. Ever met people like that?

Well, the Baha’is remind of these types of people. Those who will say anything to appear pleasing to everyone in the world. Let me give you some examples on this.

Baha’is claim to unite religions. Yet they have no thought or opinion on how they can unite the tangential beliefs in religions without antagonizing the other. Christianity believes that Jesus is the son of God. Islam says no. Christianity believes that Jesus was crucified. Islam says no. If the Baha’i Faith was truly the next generation revelation which is meant to unite religions, it must address these very clear contradictions. But you know what. They will never call a spade a spade. They will go onto a tangent. So who is Jesus? Is he the son of God? Ask the Baha’is – they will say he is a Manifestation of God. Sure. But is he the son of God? He is a Manifestation. Oh, but is he the son of God?..whew…You will never hear anything from them. Why can’t they come clean on this? Why cant they either tell the Christians that you guys have been misguided all these year – Jesus is not the son of God. Or simply tell the Muslims – there is no unity of God. Jesus is the son of God. Perhaps they can’t come clean on this without antagonizing either Islam or Christianity. So as the adage goes – if you can’t convince, then confuse!

I am still unable to reconcile the fact that Baha’is are not meant to teach the Faith to Jews. Huh? C’mon are you not a universal religion or Bahaullah the messenger of all times etc etc, as you claim? Then why are you depriving the Jews of guidance. Ask the Baha’is and they will tell you that this is as per pact which Bahaullah entered with the Jews. Huh? A messenger of God entering into an arrangement with a community to deprive them of the teachings of God? Ask the Baha’is and they will shy away from this. What right do they have to stake claim to being a universal religion when they cannot teach such an important community in the world? So whenever a Muslim comes to me, that’s what I tell him – ask the Baha’is to teach the Jews first and then Christians and then Islam. In any case that is the sequence in which Allah revealed his message in any case. Or else, tell us that the Jews are right and we all will follow the Jews and not Bahaullah.

There are several such instances which highlight the false sweetness of the Baha’i Faith. The sad part is that the Bahais themselves are not able to see through these contradictions. Anyways, if ever you meet any Baha’i who appears very sweet to you, just throw him these questions and watch the “sweetness” disappear!

    I no longer carry water for the Baha’i Faith, but the second “question” is apparently based on a misunderstanding. Baha’is do not teach their faith to Jews living in Israel. There are plenty of former Jews among the Baha’is, including “Hand of the Cause” Musa Banani, who, reportedly, could only read Arabic or Persian in the Hebrew script.
