Is Religion Really All About Chores ?
For Bahá'ís, the purpose of life is to prepare spiritually for eternity, and to spend time and effort on building virtues to make a better world: spiritual chores.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Exorcism ?
I don't want to believe anything could force me to sin. But neither do I want to think I'm inherently capable of evil. Perhaps, believing "The Devil made me do it!" is a less shocking explanation. Bahá'ís, however, take a different perspective.

Does the Bahá'í Faith Have Dress Codes ?
Most religions use the manner of dress as a way to express both respect and piety, although over time, traditions can become extreme. The Bahá'í Faith does not specify dress for either men or women, except to caution against immoderation.

A review of "Gettin' through Hard Times Together: Creating Prosperity through Sharing, Service and Sacrifice," by William Barnes. A rather thorough argument in favor of balancing attention on both material and spiritual education to make a better world.
