No, we cannot be Bahá'ís loyal to the teachings and the House, while choosing not to teach. We need to act now in reaching out to the receptive populations rather than focus on our selves and our families, while depriving thirsty souls of the living waters of the Cause of God. Even in cynical and irreligious Finland we are having new enrolments all the time. As a small example of spiritual transformation, two atheist friends of our family declared some four years ago and now they're such firebrand Bahá'ís, and so bent on being virtuous and moral beings, as to make me feel positively ashamed of myself.

With kind regards, LilWabbit

my wife is all for teaching... when the listener has approached the Baha'i WANTING to know more.

in this case it's an apartment complex with a majority latino population. and Baha'i have started a children's class... then decided to begin teach their parents, who have not expressed any interest in the Faith. the children's class teachers invite my wife along for the combined latina spanish speaking Baha'i connection. but she has become uncomfortable with what could certainly appear to the parents as proselyzation.

I dream in my lifetime uhmericans will come to realize hezbollah, hamas, and isis gain followers by helping society AND the only way to defeat them is to perform greater good.

the average person is 8 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a radical terrorist
