The Purpose Of The One True God Exalted

The Purpose of the one true God, exalted be His glory, in revealing
Himself unto men is to lay bare those gems that lie hidden within the mine
of their true and inmost selves. That the divers communions of the earth,
and the manifold systems of religious belief, should never be allowed to
foster the feelings of animosity among men, is, in this Day, of the
essence of the Faith of God and His Religion. These principles and laws,
these firmly-established and mighty systems, have proceeded from one
Source, and are the rays of one Light. That they differ one from another
is to be attributed to the varying requirements of the ages in which they
were promulgated.

Gird up the loins of your endeavor, O people of Baha, that haply the
tumult of religious dissension and strife that agitateth the peoples of
the earth may be stilled, that every trace of it may be completely
obliterated. For the love of God, and them that serve Him, arise to aid
this most sublime and momentous Revelation. Religious fanaticism and
hatred are a world-devouring fire, whose violence none can quench. The
Hand of Divine power can, alone, deliver mankind from this desolating

The utterance of God is a lamp, whose light is these words: Ye are the
fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. Deal ye one with another
with the utmost love and harmony, with friendliness and fellowship. He Who
is the Day Star of Truth beareth Me witness! So powerful is the light of
unity that it can illuminate the whole earth. The one true God, He Who
knoweth all things, Himself testifieth to the truth of these words.

Exert yourselves that ye may attain this transcendent and most sublime
station, the station that can ensure the protection and security of all
mankind. This goal excelleth every other goal, and this aspiration is the
monarch of all aspirations. So long, however, as the thick clouds of
oppression, which obscure the day star of justice, remain undispelled, it
would be difficult for the glory of this station to be unveiled to men's

Consort with all men, O people of Baha, in a spirit of friendliness and
fellowship. If ye be aware of a certain truth, if ye possess a jewel, of
which others are deprived, share it with them in a language of utmost
kindliness and good-will. If it be accepted, if it fulfil its purpose,
your object is attained. If any one should refuse it, leave him unto
himself, and beseech God to guide him. Beware lest ye deal unkindly with
him. A kindly tongue is the lodestone of the hearts of men. It is the
bread of the spirit, it clotheth the words with meaning, it is the
fountain of the light of wisdom and understanding....
