"I have a really strong feeling that it [the Baha'i Faith] is the truth!"

Randy who is in his mid 20s and lives in the “Bible Belt” of the deep south called 800—22UNITE right after he filled out the online registration to register his declaration.  He was eager to learn what it would take to become a Baha'i. 

Here’s his story . . .  

He had been reading about the Faith for several years now, and recently he got a Facebook account and found the Baha'is page.  He joined the page, and he said he started reading about the Faith even more.  He shared that much of what he read, he agreed with. 

“I really can’t put into words or explain why I want to be a Baha'i, but I can only say I have a really strong feeling that it is the truth!  It IS the truth!  It is overwhelming.  I can’t wait!” 

During the call, we shared his understanding about the Baha'i Faith, and raised lots of questions related to Christian teachings and how they are viewed in the Baha'i Faith, such as the belief by the Christians that Jesus will be physically resurrected and born again.  We discussed this and also encouraged him to read Some Answered Questions which address in more detail many of the topics he raised.  He also asked about how Baha'is tithe.
