On the Prophecy Fulfilled Webpage: Thank you, Joel

The 9th most popular post out of the 1500 or so posts I've done so far on Baha'i Views is" On The Apostle Paul: A Baha'i Perspective." I will bring forward a comment that Joel of the Prophecy Fulfilled website made today to this 19 month-old post. -gw

I have a few articles about Baha'i & Christian dialogue type topics on my webpage at bci.org/prophecy-fulfilled. Paul's writings were endorsed by Peter - although Peter said that many people were misinterpreting Paul. Much of what Paul wrote is the opposite of what the churches teach today. Paul's major doctrinal statements are remarkably consistent with the Baha'i views. Abdu'l Baha said that Paul was Jesus' "most faithful servant."

Joel Smith's site is truly a wealth of information for the "prophecy-loving" person, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Zoroastrian, Buddhist, Hindu, Native American, or Mormon.

Great Website. He really sets the record straight on the Pauline controversy that I have read and heard. His series of lectures actually had me weeping with astonishment as to the beautiful symbolic nature as well as the stunning accuracy of the Bible, and the Baha'i Faith's place in it.
