    Hello Family,

    It's come to my attention that there are more than 1000+ Religions in the world today!

    I understand too, that some are considered MAJOR and some are considered MINOR.

    What makes one qualify for major / minor status ?

    I heard that Judaism is not a major religion ???

    Anyway ... let's name them all Family. If you know if it is a major or minor, please post that too.

    Thanks Everyone!

    :heart:

    Bahá'ís believe that there is only one God who is the source of all creation.
    God is transcendent and unknowable. However, He has sent, and will continue to send, great prophets to humanity, through which the Holy Spirit has revealed the "Word of God." The Great Manifestations of God up to this time have been:

    Adam (? BCE)
    Abraham (? BCE)
    Moses (1456 BCE)
    Krishna (1249 BCE)
    Zoroaster (1000 BCE)
    Buddha (757 BCE)
    Jesus Christ (34 CE)
    Mohammed (613 CE)
    The Bab (1844 CE)
    Baha'u'llah (1863 CE)


    In 1890, famed Cambridge orientalist Edward G. Browne met Bahá'u'lláh. He was the only Westerner to meet Him and leave an account of his experience. Browne, who visited Bahá'u'lláh in His home at Bahji, wrote:
    Though I dimly suspected whither I was going and whom I was to behold (for no distinct intimation had been given to me), a second or two elapsed ere, with a throb of wonder and awe, I became definitely conscious that the room was not untenanted. In the corner where the divan met the wall sat a wondrous and venerable figure... The face of him on whom I gazed I can never forget, though I cannot describe it. Those piercing eyes seemed to read one's very soul; power and authority sat on that ample brow... No need to ask in whose presence I stood, as I bowed myself before one who is the object of a devotion and love which kings might envy and emperors sigh for in vain!
    A mild dignified voice bade me be seated, and then continued: "Praise be to God that thou hast attained!...Thou hast come to see a prisoner and an exile...We desire but the good of the world and the happiness of the nations; yet they deem us a stirrer up of strife and sedition worthy of bondage and banishment...That all nations should become one in faith and all men as brothers; that the bonds of affection and unity between the sons of men should be strengthened; that diversity of religion should cease, and differences of race be annulled -- what harm is there in this?...Yet so it shall be; these fruitless strifes, these ruinous wars shall pass away, and the `Most great Peace' shall come...Do not you in Europe need this also? Is this not what Christ foretold?...Yet do we see your kings and rulers lavishing their treasures more freely on means for the destruction of the human race than on that which would conduce to the happiness of mankind...These strifes and this bloodshed and discord must cease, and all men be as one kindred and one family...Let not a man glory in this, that he loves his country; let him rather glory in this, that he loves his kind..."1


    Seek the truth my brothers
