We the Free Baha’is do not believe in declarations. We believe in spreading the true teachings of Baha’u’llah and don’t work for numbers. A Free Baha’i should purify himself from greed of attaining positions, and start working out of love for humanity and world peace.
Our Master has clearly stated,
“There are no officers in this Cause. I do not and have not appointed any one to perform any special services, but I encourage everyone to engage in the service of the Kingdom. The foundation of this Cause is purely a democracy, and not a theocracy.”
(Reference: Star of the West, Vol. 8, pg. 116)
These man-made assemblies and authoritative positions have pushed the Baha’is to work out of greed of acquiring positions which lead to fake reports and false statistics. But, if a person frees himself from administration, he will fulfill his duties towards Baha’u’llah and not for NSA or UHJ. Thus, he will be rewarded by Baha’u’llah for his efforts. For this reason, Free Baha’is do not believe in Officers or Office Bearers and one must be the Guardian of his own faith and action.
So, anyone who would wish to work for the faith should follow the teachings of Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l Baha, serve the faith and promote world peace and harmony.
Why do you think the Baha’i Faith got split into various groups after the passing away of the Master? Don’t you think the rule of the so-called guardian Shoghi Effendi and his Administration has played a very crucial role in the division and disunity of the Baha’is?
