In the first installment of my article of the Baha’I faith I wrote about problem # 1 of many issues with this religion. Problem # 1 as a refresher was that; The Baha’i faith does not believe that Heaven or Hell are actual “places” that people go to after death. This of course is in contradiction to the Christian Bible. So today I am going to write about the second problem, and that is, the Baha’I belief in salvation.
Problem # 2
The Baha’I’s position of salvation is that the followers do not believe that salvation is a free gift from God. It is a synergistic role between God and man, with God initiating salvation but man must abet in the process. This “process” is not recognized as being a onetime thing.
This problem is the same as problem number 1 as it contradicts what the Bible clearly states. Read:
Romans 6: 22-23 (HCSB)
22 But now, since you have been liberated from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification[r]—and the end is eternal life! 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2: 6-10 (HCSB) clearly states that since salvation is a gift from God there is no reason to have to work for it;
6 Together with Christ Jesus He also raised us up and seated us in the heavens, 7 so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace through His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—9 not from works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
Since Resurrection Sunday is getting closer and closer my next installment on the problems with the Baha’I faith I will write about their position on the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Please continue to pray for the believers of this false doctrine filled religion so that the Holy Spirit will come over them and they can see the light of God!
