We can do all this without faith, humility, and obedience to the commandments of God. We make the laws (Merkel in Germany) We command as it must! We can all do that much better without the message of Baha’u’llah? It’s interesting what the Baha’i tell us about your god! We take that out for us, which is useful. The other is left to the Baha’i!
