Re: Mr. Ross Campbell

Dear Friends,

The National Spiritual Assembly and the Counsellors have now found it necessary to share with all of you guidance from the Universal House of Justice regarding Mr. Ross Campbell, a resident of British Columbia, whose recent email communications have apparently been sent to believers in various parts of the country. In a letter of 14 April 2000 addressed to the National Spiritual Assembly, the Universal House of Justice stated:

“…we write to advise you of the conclusion of the Universal House of Justice that Mr. Campbell has become an avowed supporter of the pretensions of Joel B. Marangella. As your Assembly is aware, Mr. Marangella is an active Covenant-breaker, one of the several former followers of Charles Mason Remey who have laid claims of their own to the Guardianship.

“…The friends should be advised to avoid any contact with him, both for their own spiritual protection and the protection of the Cause. In the poignant words of His last Tablet to the believers in America, the Master cautions: ‘O friends of God! Be awake, be awake; be vigilant, be vigilant!’, and He reiterates the command of Baha’u’llah: ‘If anyone comes to you with the book of the wicked, put him behind you.'”

Anyone who receives a communication from Mr. Campbell should be advised to inform the National Spiritual Assembly immediately, to delete it unopened, and make no response.

The National Spiritual Assembly will offer ardent and continuing prayers for the preservation of the spiritual health of the Canadian Baha’i community and its utter loyalty to Bahá’u’lláh’s mighty Covenant.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

Judy L. Filson, Secretary
