On Baha'i Recommends Belief-o-matic: Site assumes no legal liability for the ultimate fate of your soul

Even if YOU don't know what faith you are, Belief-O-MaticTM knows. Answer 20 questions about your concept of God, the afterlife, human nature, and more, and Belief-O-Matic™ will tell you what religion (if any) you practice...or ought to consider practicing.

Warning: Belief-O-Matic™ assumes no legal liability for the ultimate fate of your soul.

Just how many people have been introduced to the Baha'i Faith, or become convinced they are Baha'i by taking the quiz? -gw

You should try the "beliefomatic" site. Your conception of God is one of an educator, which is compatible with Baha'i belief. To Baha'is, God is an unknowable essence of love which reveals his loving education to us through successive Divine messangers who reveal never ending chapters of the same revelation. God does care and provide for us, but doesnt need us. We are in need of His guidance. Heaven and hell are educative concepts. Being "good" or "bad" and "heaven" and "hell" are concepts for kindergarten children who need the teacher's encouragement. When we grow, we are no longer concerned with how people might judge us, but with the success we have in our enterprises. Hell is straying away from the path of a useful, as determined by God's messangers and wasting our precious moments in this short earthly life, and heaven is a life accomplished in the service of humanity, i.e. God's creation, the purpose of our lives being the advancement of civilisation. We then move on to other spiritual realms and the virtues we have acquired in this world will be of use to us in the next world, just as the organs we developed n the womb are useful to us now.
