Logical Proofs of Baha'u'llah

We have seen how logical proofs from the Bible prove Jesus is Messiah. Now we can take the same proofs and apply them to Baha'u'llah.

"Believe Me for the very works sake." Baha'u'llah was well known and loved for His extreme kindness. He and His wife took good care of the poor, gave to those in need, gave advice even to their enemies. They were known for being loving and selfsacrificing.

"They also may be one in Us so the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me." Baha'is are far more united than Christians. There are more than 30,000 sects of Christianity but no sects of the Baha'i Faith. The reason for that is the Covenant of Baha'u'llah is well defined, in writing, authenticated and there has been an appointed head of the Faith for as long as it existed.

"I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." Baha'u'llah laid down His life for His sheep. There are two ways of doing this. One is as Jesus and the Blessed Bab did, instantaneous martyrdom. The other was is to suffer for 40 years as Moses, Buddha and Baha'u'llah did. Either way the sheep are redeemed.

"A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit neither can a corrupt tree bringeth forth good fruit." Paul defined that fruit: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering..." Baha'u'llah and His followers have certainly borne abundant fruit in the relatively short history of the Faith. The most obvious is the world government created by Baha'u'llah and the United Nations inspired by Him. There are the beautiful Temples all around the world and the Arc on Mt. Carmel. There are the SocioEconomic Develop Projects all over the world and many Baha'i schools. There are intellectual organizations, Baha'i International Community, and Baha'i Communities all around the world. Obviously no Religion spread as far and fast as the Baha'i Faith.

"Now speakest Thou plainly...now are we sure Thou knowest all things." One might be tempted to state that Baha'u'llah always spoke and wrote plainly but some of His Writings are extremely mystical, but certainly the vast majority of His Writings and those of His succcessors are very clear.

"For he taught them as [one] having authority, and not as the scribes." And Baha'u'llah certainly taught with authority. Here is a clear example:

The first duty prescribed by God for His servants is the recognition of Him Who is the Dayspring of His Revelation and the Fountain of His laws, Who representeth the Godhead in both the Kingdom of His Cause and the world of creation. Whoso achieveth this duty hath attained unto all good; and whoso is deprived thereof hath gone astray, though he be the author of every righteous deed. It behoveth every one who reacheth this most sublime station, this summit of transcendent glory, to observe every ordinance of Him Who is the Desire of the world. These twin duties are inseparable. Neither is acceptable without the other. Thus hath it been decreed by Him Who is the Source of Divine inspiration.

Jhn 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd.
This is actually a prophecy of Jesus concerning the unification of God's Religion. The sheep are the believers and the fold is the Religion. Baha'u'llah clearly stated that all Religions are created by God and are in complete harmony.

Finally, Muhammad challenged those who opposed Him, 'If you are in doubt about Me, produce Writings better than the Qu'ran'. Until the Blessed Bab came along and Baha'u'llah followed Him nobody had come close but it is very clear from any objective perspective that Baha'u'llah's Writings are far superior to the Qu'ran.

      Baha'u'llah existed, but was a fraud, a religious con-man. Baloney salesman. No better than Joseph Smith.
