This article is a continuation of the Dangers of the Baha’i faith. Unlike the Christian Faith the followers of Baha’i have a different understanding of what happens after death. The Christian is appointed to die once and to be at home with the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:8
8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. (NASB)
In a general sense the believers will go to Heaven and the unbelievers will go to Hell!
29 and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment. (NASB)
2 Thessalonians 1:9
9 These will pay the penalty of aeternal destruction, baway from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, (NASB)
The Baha’i’s position on what happens when one dies is as taken from the “Gleanings from the Writing’s Haha’u’llah p. 155:
And now concerning thy question regarding the soul of man and its survival after death. Know thou of a truth that the soul, after its separation from the body, will continue to progress until it attaineth the presence of God, in a state and condition which neither the revolution of ages and centuries, nor the changes and chances of this world, can alter. It will endure as long as the Kingdom of God, His sovereignty, His dominion and power will endure. It will manifest the signs of God and His attributes, and will reveal His loving kindness and bounty. –
The followers of Baha’i have a nebulous take on Hell. “We don’t worship God because we desire “Heaven” or we fear “hell”. (BAHAITEACHINGS.ORG)
“Worship thou God in such wise that if thy worship lead thee to the fire, no alteration in thine adoration would be produced, and so likewise if thy recompense should be paradise. Thus and thus alone should be the worship which befitteth the one True God. Shouldst thou worship Him because of fear, this would be unseemly in the sanctified Court of His presence, and could not be regarded as an act by thee dedicated to the Oneness of His Being. Or if thy gaze should be on paradise, and thou shouldst worship Him while cherishing such a hope, thou wouldst make God’s creation a partner with Him, notwithstanding the fact that paradise is desired by men. – Selections from the Writings of the Bab, p. 77-78.”
From this writing above, the Baha’i faith seems to deny the fact of Hell in so many words. Written is that the followers need not fear God, which is of course an anti-Christian perspective. We fear God as He is the almighty creator of the Universe and through disobeidience could snuff us out in a second. The fear of God is an uplifting fear!
Please pray for the followers of this cult of a faith!
