Quote: "Religion should unite all hearts..."

Religion should unite all hearts and cause wars and disputes to vanish from the face of the earth, give birth to spirituality, and being life and light to each heart.  If religion becomes a cause of dislike, hatred and division, it were better to be without it, and to withdraw from such a religion would be a truly religious act.  For it is clear that the purpose of a remedy is to cure; but if the remedy should only aggravate the complaint it had better be left alone.  Any religion which is not a cause of love and unity is no religion.

~~ 'Abdu'l-Baha, Spirit of Faith: The Oneness of Religion, pg. 120, passage #58


It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens. ~~Baha'u'llah

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come
