Bahá´ís believe in God.
My personal interpretation: some sort of supreme intelligence, not male! and more akin to the idea of the forces of nature rather than something human-like.
The Bahá´í; writings refer to religion as a tool for aiding spiritual development (in the here and now) rather than as an end in itself.
Bahá´ís come in all shapes and sizes.
In terms of my own approach as a Bahá´í I am at the liberal end of the scale, most likely having more in common with humanists than even fellow Bahá´ís on many topics.
The Bahá´í Faith aims to be global, celebrates diversity and the use of the intellect, and like any religion or system, nothing is static nor perfect. And as a tool, being a Bahá´í pushes me to stretch myself in various ways. An area of particular concern to me is equality for LGBT Bahá´ís. See my blog: Just A Bahai.
- Diverse Bahá´ís: an unfinished website I started making in Dutch and English for my local Bahá´í community. One day I'll change this into a website reflecting diverse Bahá´í viewpoints from around the world, because that's more what my own Bahá´í community experience is.
- What is a Bahá´í? | Wat is een Bahá´í?: gives a brief run down of some basic beliefs supported with short quotations from the Bahá´í writings. The same website has pages on: Bahá´u´lláh, The Báb, Bahá´í Scripture, Bahá´í Activities, as well as some Facts and Figures
- Bahá'í Rants, a blog run by Baquia where I often make comments and occasionally write a column. Anyone can add comments. Search for me there using "sonja".
