A Critical Analysis of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Part Eight

One of the most amazing things about really sitting down and going through the contents of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas is that I probably never would have been impressed with the book had I first read it as a non-Baha’i about 25 years ago. I only got a copy of it after I’d been a Baha’i for several months and by then I had strong personal ties to other Baha’is that blinded me to the flaws of the Faith. When you fall in love with PEOPLE, it often makes you overlook FACTS that otherwise should matter.

Here are the links to Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven of my critique of the Most Holy Book of Baha’u’llah. And as always, I will include direct quotes from the book in red bold and my responses will be in blue italics. My source for this book is:

A Critical Analysis of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Part Five

As my home state of Texas gets battered and flooded by Hurricane Harvey, I’ve been dealing at length with the issue of dogmatism and absurdity in the very heart of my former religion, the Baha’i Faith, as a means of atoning for eight years of delusional thoughts and acts I never should have committed myself to.
