Question by billbahai: Is the world headed toward a single religion? Is it the Baha’i Faith?
Is the world ready for a single faith which unites the scriptures and truths of older faiths, proclaims one God and a message for our time, including the Oneness of Man (no fighting over race), the Oneness of Religion (all have truths and their scriptures do not really contradict each other) the Oneness of God (no battles over religion)?

The Baha’is offer this: www.bahai.org

“In this sense, neither the person of Jesus nor His writings hath differed from that of Muhammad and of His holy Book, inasmuch as both have championed the Cause of God, uttered His praise, and revealed His commandments. Thus it is that Jesus, Himself, declared: “I go away and come again unto you.” Consider the sun. Were it to say now, “I am the sun of yesterday,” it would speak the truth. And should it, bearing the sequence of time in mind, claim to be other than that sun, it still would speak the truth. In like manner, if it be said that all the days are but one and the same, it is correct and true. And if it be said, with respect to their particular names and designations, that they differ, that again is true. For though they are the same, yet one doth recognize in each a separate designation, a specific attribute, a particular character. Conceive accordingly the distinction, variation, and unity characteristic of the various Manifestations of holiness, that thou mayest comprehend the allusions made by the Creator of all names and attributes to the mysteries of distinction and unity, and discover the answer to thy question as to why that everlasting Beauty should have, at sundry times, called Himself by different names and titles….”

(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 21)

  1. With 30,000 Protestant denominations – not a chance

  2. No, actually, the world is headed toward a cessation of religion.

    “Is the world ready for a single faith which unites the scriptures and truths of older faiths, proclaims one God and a message for our time, including the Oneness of Man (no fighting over race), the Oneness of Religion (all have truths and their scriptures do not really contradict each other) the Oneness of God (no battles over religion)?”

    The world is ready for mythology to go the way of the dodo.

    Religion was originally created to serve as an explanation for natural phenomena that our primitive ancestors lacked the scientific and technological means to ascertain the correct answers to. This is no longer the case. We have explanations, not merely satisfactory, but compelling and powerfully descriptive and predictive, for virtually all phenomena. Belief in the supernatural is already obsolete, and will only continue to become increasingly untenable over the next several generations.

    I predict that, with the exponential technological evolution our species is undergoing, and the access to information this technology allows, people who subscribe to the supernatural will constitute less than 50% of the population within one hundred years, and less than 1% within two hundred. Within three hundred, religious people will have been reduced to roughly the numbers that Flat Earthers enjoy today, and they will be regarded by society in much the same way.
