Poll Opened Responses

The teachings of Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the Baha'i Faith, are worthy of further study

If you scored mostly A and B on the polls, then you will probably feel right at home in the Baha'i Community. Mostly B and C? You are the kind of person who likes more information before making decisions. Fortunately, it is easy to find out more. Come to a few of our Meetups, where your questions will be welcomed. Baha'is believe we can keep our hearts open and our minds alive at the same time! If you got mostly C and Ds, then you will probably be happier staying in the church or religious group you are used to. At least you made your decision based on accurate information, not rumors or fears. What if you got lots of A's and B's but there are a few really important F's that you can't ignore? Believe it or not, you are the kind of person we really enjoy talking with because you have passionate beliefs that force you to ask questions and search for answers.

Evil is simply the absence of good in the same way as darkness is the absence of light.

Though the darkness of hatred or immortality can be inconvenient, it is not a force to be fought, but rather a need to be filled by the light of love and virtue.

The soul is immortal. If it is attracted to the attributes of God, it will be strengthened

and continue to move towards God after death. If not, it will weaken and fade. There is no locked door between "Heaven" and "Hell." Heaven is simply moving towards God. Hell is moving away. If you love truth, justice and kindness, than you will move towards God, no matter what you call yourself.

The soul is not "in" body, any more than a light is in a mirror.

The connection is real, but intangible. For a spiritually strong person, death is the door to true life. We will retain our identity and communicate with loved ones. We will not return to the physical world, but will continue to grow and even serve in the spiritual world.

Women and men are equal in their capacity to reflect the image or virtues of God.

God is neither male nor female. The word "He" is often used in scripture only because we do not have a neutral personal pronoun in English.
