Prayer without G!d or supernatural intervention

by Interfaith

prayer, an act of communication by humans with the sacred or holy—God, the gods, the transcendent realm, or supernatural powers. Found in all religions in all times, prayer may be a corporate or personal act utilizing various forms and techniques.

Ezekiel 37

by Interfaith

And so the conversation continues from another thread . . . RJM said: I don’t see why not? Ezekiel describes all kinds of strange visions that could hardly have been familiar to his readers? Of course he used language that was familiar to his listeners. Most people back then were illiterate, and so they wouldn’t […]

No false prophet will be established in Israel

by Interfaith

Ezekiel 13 is about false prophets “that prophesy out of their own hearts”. God says to them, “Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!” And that they have contributed naught to Isreal “to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord” This reflects the many warnings […]

Questions for the Baha’i – from a primarily Christian perspective.

by Brian Turner

The Baha’i teaches that God is unknowable in his essence (Christianity refutes that, btw), but that God does reveal something of Himself through his “manifestations” (ie. Krishna, Buddha, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, Baha’u’llah, et. al.). If I have it right, these manifestations possess something of the attributes of the divine in a particular and unique […]

The Archeology of the Kingdom of God: Diving a Bit Deeper into a Baha’i Approach to Metaphysics

by Brian Turner

In an effort to help improve and deepen our dialogue with @Thomas and @RJM, I would like to share a few quotes about Baha’u’llah’s approach to metaphysics from The Archeology of the Kingdom of God, which is an English translation by Peter Terry of a French work by Jean-Marc Lepain. Because it is a translation, […]

Understanding esoterism

by Interfaith

Christianity – indeed any religion – is essentially a discernment between God and the world, between the Real and the unreal, the Absolute and the relative, the Eternal and the contingent. Following from this, religion is the union of the two. Religions are exoteric to the degree that they are shaped by their sitz in leben (‘setting […]

laws of nature…

by Interfaith

please use this thread to teach verifiable laws of nature… I would like to start with a question. How is it, in the case of fossils, that the dead animal completely disintegrates (bones etc.) but the dirt it left the impression in keeps the shape and becomes completely solid. Wouldn’t it make more sense since […]

on Faith

by Interfaith

There is a saying – ‘the first thing one knows is the last thing one understands’, and such is faith. “Now faith is the substance of things to be hoped for, the evidence of things that appear not” (Hebrews 11:1), but, by the Grace of God, in some manner we can aspire to “the ultimate […]
