Discipline - Raising Children to Be Good Citizens
The concept of discipline means strength of character, not a form of punishment.
Spring is the time for renewal in all things, including religion. A Divine Springtime occurs when God sends another Messenger to further the spiritual education of mankind.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Evil Spirits ?
The terms 'Satan', the 'Evil One', do occur in the scripture but they are simply symbols for man's base and worldly nature, which is the source of imperfection and sin and which can be overcome.
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.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Extraterrestrial Life ?
The Bahá'í Faith does have within its sacred texts several comments about the extent of God's creation that suggest non-terrestrial life is both possible and already existent.
Do Bahá'ís Confess Their Sins ?
Confessing one's sins and transgressions before another human being is not a source of either redemption or pardon in the Bahá'í Teachings. A believer turns only to God for forgiveness and salvation.
Do Baha'is feed the poor?
I was asked recently whether the Bahá'í Faith has social outreach programs for the needy, and this is how I answered.
Do Bahá'ís Worry?
Well, yes--and no. There is no way any sensible person cannot be stressed by a daily dose of natural and human disasters. Bahá'ís, however, worry about character and virtues before responding.
Does the Bahá'í Faith Have Dogma ?
There are a minimum of institutionalized rituals in the Bahá'í Faith and no man-made dogmas. Ritual holds no place in a religious doctrine which must be expressed in all the actions of life, and accomplished in neighborly love.
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.
