THE MESSAGES AND ACTIONS OF UNIVERSAL HOUSE OF JUSTICE ARE AGAINST THE BASIC TEACHINGS OF BAHA’U’LLAH
A fundamental teaching of Baha’u’llah is the oneness of the world of humanity. Addressing mankind, He says: “Ye are all leaves of one tree and the fruits of one branch.” By this it is meant that the world of humanity is like a tree, the nations or peoples are the different limbs or branches of that tree and the individual human creatures are as the Fruits and blossoms thereof. In this way His Holiness Baha’u’llah expressed the oneness of humankind whereas in all religious teachings Of the past, the human world has been represented as divided into two Parts, one known as the people of the Book of God or the pure tree and the other the people of infidelity and error or the evil tree. The former were considered as belonging to the faithful and the others to the hosts of the irreligious and infidel; one part of humanity the recipients of divine mercy and the other the object of the wrath of their Creator. His Holiness Baha’u’llah removed this by proclaiming the oneness of the world of humanity and this principle is specialized in His teachings…. (‘Abdu’l Baha, Baha’i World Faith – ‘Abdu’l Baha Section, p. 246)
A religion whose founders state that the practice of shunning has been abolished and nullified and those we should see no one as an enemy or draw lines between ourselves and others; and yet we see that the Universal House of Justice asking the Baha’is to practice these very things, shunning, seeing enemies, drawing lines.
COMMUNICATION FROM THE UHJ:
The need to protect the Faith from the attacks of its enemies may not be generally appreciated by the friends, particularly in places where attacks have been infrequent. However, it is certain that such opposition will increase, become concerted, and eventually universal. The writings clearly foreshadow not only an intensification of the machinations of internal enemies, but a rise in the hostility and opposition of its external enemies, whether religious or secular, as the Cause pursues its onward march towards ultimate victory. Therefore, in the light of the warnings of the Guardian, the Auxiliary Boards for Protection should keep “constantly” a “watchful eye” on those “who are known to be enemies, or to have been put out of the Faith”, discreetly investigate their activities, alert intelligently the friends to the opposition inevitably to come, explain how each crisis in God’s Faith has always proved to be a blessing in disguise, and prepare them for the “dire contest which is destined to range the Army of Light against the forces of darkness”.
(The Universal House of Justice, The Institution of the Counsellors, p. 16)
One must ask oneself why Baha’u’llah would remove the past religious practice of dividing humanity the “pure tree”-“the faithful”, from “the evil tree”-“the irreligious” only to have the Universal House of Justice itself reinstate the very same past religious practice of dividing humanity: “the army of light” from “the forces of darkness”?
The Other example of betrayal of the Basic Baha’i teachings is the Court case slammed by the Haifan Baha’is against the minority Baha’i communities like Orthodox Baha’is lead by Mr. Joel Marangella, Baha’is under the provision of Covenant lead by Mr. Neal Chase and The Reform Baha’i Faith lead by Mr. Fredrick Glaysher.
Why do Baha’is so easily and conveniently dismiss the universal teachings of the Baha’i faith? Why are the universal teachings within the Baha’i faith in effect eliminated?
It is the duty of the every lover of Baha’u’llah to free themselves from the clutches of UHJ and follow the FREE BAHA’I FAITH.
