Help With Holy Titles...

I'm in the midst of an ongoing discussion with a born again Christian friend at work. The term "Son of God" of course comes up in reference to Christ. His perspective of that name is taken quite literally (which solidifies his belief in the deification of Jesus) but he was interested when I suggested that it is a title of station. I know that Baha'u'llah was called "The Blessed Beauty". Can anyone give me any titles for the other manifestations?
Thanks for any help, Highmountain

Hello Richard and all,

That is to say, it is more important for us to understand the spiritual truths of God and His Manifested Messengers, than it is for us to understand the scientific physical facts of the nature of their bodies, births, or bestowals. Indeed, we need to focus on the spiritual messages of truth, not the physical facts of messenger embodiment.
Very well spoken... Absolutely... best wishes, Brett

Thank you, Brett, I truly appreciate your good, positive, spiritual sensitivity, insight, and feedback... May God's grace ever be on you and yours...
