Baha'i view of Christianity

Christmas celebrations in Haifa

As regards the celebration of the Christian Holiday by the believers; it is surely preferable and even highly advisable that the friends should in their relation to each other discontinue observing such holidays as Christmas and New Years, and to have their festival gatherings of this nature instead during the Intercalary Days and Naw-Rúz….
We must not imitate the missionaries in our chanting and singing, but make it something new. We must not imitate under any circumstances the Christians.
Muslim faith has declined in Turkey (we found that out) and we also visited the Holy Spot in Istanbul. The Jews in Haifa are not as strict about their Sabbath as they were in 1938. Christian Faith in Russia and Europe being wrapped up and a new one replaced. Shoghi Effendi told us that Russia has set up a new Catholic Church (true one) but they only doing it to undermine the people.
The enemies in Palestine are the Muslims, Christians, Mohammed Ali's party. It is only the beginning of the opposition of the church. This opposition will gradually increase and spread to the Church of England and afterwards will affect the Catholic religion and will bring the downfall of the Pope.
'Abdu'l-Bahá said that that the site of the manger in Bethlehem is the only authentic Christian site in Palestine.
There are two reasons for visiting Jerusalem. First to see the Holy places, and second to contrast them to those in Haifa and Bahji. Jerusalem will be the last stronghold of Christianity.
