On Believing in Something That is Ultimately Unprovable: No, I am not a Baha'i, but I admire its inclusivity

More interesting commentary on the PreacherMike blog on religious exclusivity/inclusivity. Kyle wonders if Jeff is a Baha'i, but Jeff is not. -gw

Jeff are you a Baha’i? I just mentioned this the other day in some comments about drawing lines. Just wondering how you found this place.

To Kyle: No, I am not a Bahai, though I admire its inclusivity… I have found after many years that I am simply a theist, a person who believes in a personal God.

Perhaps I have been a bit harsh in my comments, as I find much about ‘revealed religions’ (religions that depend on a ‘revelation’, such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Mormonism) to be very comforting and helpful. However, somewhere along the way these same people have lost the natural humility which should come from believing in something ultimately unproveable…

I wish you well.
I found this place by using GOOGLE…
