Topic: Three core principles establish a basis for Bahá'í teachings and doctrine: the unity of God, the unity of religion, and the unity of humankind. From these postulates stems the belief that God periodically reveals his will through divine messengers, whose purpose is to transform the character of humankind and develop, within those who respond, moral and spiritual qualities. Religion is thus seen as orderly, unified, and progressive from age to age.

I am curious to hear peoples perspective's on this Faith.

Tiel. I am also associated with the Baha'i teachings. I think it is an excellent alternative to typical, dogmatic, religion. Enough said.

I personally wouldn't believe it because it seems unconvincing. How do you know that is the way God has worked in the world? The Wikipedia link said, "In Bahá'í belief, each consecutive messenger prophesied of messengers to follow". However, Abraham and Jesus did not 'prophesy' the coming of Buddha or Muhammad. It seems like an atempt to connect all religions together which I believe is impossible since they are all so distinctive and contradictory to eachother. If there is absolute truth, then there must be only one true religion.
