Abdul Baha speaks about Jews & Buddhists

The real teaching of Buddha is the same as the teaching of Jesus Christ. The teachings of all the Prophets are the same in character. Now men have changed the teaching. If you look at the present practice of the Buddhist religion, you will see that there is little of the Reality left. Many worship idols although their teaching forbids it.

(Abdu'l-Baha, Abdu'l-Baha in London, p. 63)

The teaching of Buddha was like a young and beautiful child, and now it has become as an old and decrepit man. Like the aged man it cannot see, it cannot hear, it cannot remember anything. Why go so far back? Consider the laws of the Old Testament: the Jews do not follow Moses as their example nor keep his commands. So it is with many other religions.

(Abdu'l-Baha, Abdu'l-Baha in London, p. 63)

Where is all the supposed respect for past religions? Where is the desire to see reconciliation between religions?

In reality all Baha'ism is interested in is the triumphalistic supplantation of all past, in Abdu'l-Baha's own words "decrepit", religions.

  1. Baha'ism is full of ego centric beliefs such as the following:

    From this thou canst imagine the magnitude of the Bahá'í cycle -- a cycle that must extend over a period of at least five hundred thousand years.*

    This from a minor religious cult which will never become anything more than a minor religious cult.
