May I ask some questions about the Baha'i Covenant? Who are the parties in this covenant? Individual Baha'i believers and God? There seem to be a greater and a lesser covenant. Is this like the Laws of Moses as compared to the Laws of Noah? Which laws are part of the lesser one, and which are part of the greater one? I understand that "breaking the covenant" is a grave matter in the Baha'i Faith. What does it mean, in terms of what offense is being committed? Is it possible to break the greater but not the lesser covenant? Are the consequences really excommunication?
