it would have been disrespectful if . . .

by Saman Ahmadi on

you had said that: these days you hit a baha'i on the head, a dog falls out.

حیرت از این سَگدانی

Demo


ترجمه لغت «فیث» در انگلیسی به فارسی میشود «ایمان». حال اگر یکبار به سر هر سگی بکوبی و بهش بگی ای سگه گوشهات را خوب باز کن و خوب گوش کن و گر نه توسری محکم دیگری میخوری: "«بهایی» یک «فرقه» و و یا بقول خود پیروان آن فرقه یک «دین» است و نه یک «ایمان»" باور بفرمائید حالیش میشود ولی آن بهایانی که خود از سر سگ پایین افتاده اند هیچوری این مفهوم ساده تو کله شان فرو نمیرود که نمیرود. اصرار هم ورزی پاچه انسان را گازی محکم گیرند. و منظور بی احترامی به سگ، این خلقت بسار مفید و رفیق انسان، نبود ولی خوب ماشالله بعضی افراد در ذیل از هیچگونه ذکر امثال خوب و نادرست کوتاهی نمیکنند. جل الخالق.

Dear Demo, ready mohsenrahimi's comment, he apparently doesn't mean to be disrespectful either, do you believe him?

Demo did not "simply tried to explain the difference between 'Faith' & 'Religion", Demo Simply said:"3. 'Bahai' is neither 'Faith' nor 'Religion' but is a 'Cult' rather".  Why don't we stay truthful to our goals and our statements.  I believe no one cares what you think about the Baha'i Faith as no one and I mean NO ONE, cares what I think about Islam or Baha'i Faith.  These are personal matters and you don't have to jump in every time something is posted on this site or others to "clarify" that Baha'i Faith is not a religion or a Faith, but a cult.  That statement by itself is deragatory and untrue.  I am not sure how else I can put it so you can understand it.

"You believe Baha'i Faith is a cult? Keep your beliefs to yourself, no
one is interested
and no one faults you for your beliefs.  It might
interest you to know that the rest of the world recognized The Baha'i
Faith as a religion
, but hey, don't let that bother you; I am sure
you're the only one who knows the truth."

'Demo' simply tried to explain the difference between 'Faith' & 'Religion.' No personal attacks on one's beliefs & no degrading of any cults/religions. Let the rest of world make up their minds about the comments below.

And the ultimate truth is with no one except the one & the only GOD who is the only source of truth & nothing but the truth. And GOD is the only one who is the only one interested in truth & the only one who knows who is at fault & who is not.

May GOD bless us all & judge our beliefs through his grace. Amen.

Cult

by stavackoli on

Dear Demo,

Is this a new way of hiding behind "other" intentions.  Are you not aware of the general meaning of the world cult, or do you think we are naive to think you did not mean harm by your comments.  You are of course aware that Larijani also called The Baha'i Faith a cult, are you saying he meant #3 and #5 also?  And what, by the way, is a spurious religion?  Was Islam considered spurious by the Jews in Saudi when it first came into being, and if it was, did that make it any less of a religion?  If you actually mean no harm, why not use religion instead of a cult? Merriam's translation of the word cult is as irrelevant as your beliefs about The Faith, the general populace's notion of the word cult is what matters in the end.  

As an aside, I am not sure why I am wasting my time with this.  Have fun believing whatever it is you want to believe.

It is great always to learn English....

"first" before commenting on others' comments!

FYI. "Cult's Definition" from Merriam Webster dictionary:

1 : formal religious veneration : worship 2 : a system of religious beliefs and ritual; also : its body of adherents 3 : a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents
4 : a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator <health cults> 5 a : great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad b : the object of such devotion c : a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion

 

"Bahai's cult" is all about numbers 3&5 above. All cults have made the 'Divine Comedy' out of real faith in GOD with no exceptions! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divine_Comedy

Cult

by stavackoli on

Dear Demo,

We tried to discuss this on another blog and you told me you did not want to discuss it since this was not the right forum for it.  Is this the right forum for insulting other people's beliefs? Islam is a cult.  There I said it, Islam is a cult, does that make Islam a cult?

Can we have some proof for your claims, or this is a forum for just posting baseless comments from people whose beliefs are only based on hate?  You believe Baha'i Faith is a cult? Keep your beliefs to yourself, no one is interested and no one faults you for your beliefs.  It might interest you to know that the rest of the world recognized The Baha'i Faith as a religion, but hey, don't let that bother you; I am sure you're the only one who knows the truth.

it always great to read . . .

"attacks" from those who choose anonymity. BTW, cult means "formal religious veneration".

Faith vs Religion

by Demo on

1. 'Faith' is an inwardly believe in GOD. Inscribed in ons's heart by the creator & causes him/her to grow/trasform in 'faith.'  No books/images/words in the entire universe could ever explain/discuss it.

2. 'Religion' is an outwardly presentation of one's legion with the various scriptures on hand under name of GOD. 'Cult' is a break up of 'Religion.' 

3. 'Bahai' is neither 'Faith' nor 'Religion' but is a 'Cult' rather.
