Critique of Ruhi Institue’s Book Number 8,”The Covenant Unit 2″ – Part Four

Posted on April 2, 2009. Filed under: book analysis | Tags: |

Parts 1, 2, and 3, of this Critique of The Covenant, Unit 2 clearly demonstrated that the Heterodox  Bahá’í institution, the Ruhi Institute is utterly unqualified and unworthy to teach the Bahá’í Faith.

The Critique exposes the manner by which the authors of The Pre-publication Edition of The Covenant, Unit 2, The Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh have, validated and accepted the replacement of the highest Institutions of the Baha’i Administrative Order in the same
manner as their sans-Guardian leadership, with institutions of their own making, thereby repudiating major provisions enshrined in the Will and Testament of  ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, that are vital for the establishment of the Divinely-conceived Administration of the New World Order, a repudiation which is nothing less than an illegal attempt to abrogate His sacred Instructions, the Instructions of the One Who is the Center of the Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh and a nefarious attempt that can only be looked upon by faithful Bahá’ís as a clear violation of their Lord’s Covenant.

The first three parts of this Critique exposes the manner by which the authors of The Covenant, Unit 2 act/write as if they have the capability and legitimate authority to interpret  Bahá’í Holy Writ and Bahá’í Holy Text  and to interpret/explain authoritatively the writings of the first of our Bahá’í Guardians, Shoghi Effendi, which capability and legitimate authority those Ruhi authors and their leadership DO NOT possess.

Parts 1., 2., and 3.,of this Critique of  The Covenant, Unit 2 exposed the fallacious heterodox teaching, extant in the Ruhi Institute manuscript, that only someone who is from the “Aghsan” can be eligible to be chosen as a Guardian’s successor.  The first three
parts of this Critique explained the manner by which the Ruhi Institute authors of The Covenant, Unit 2, shamelessly betrayed Shoghi Effendi, the first Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith, whose dedicated and faithful ministry of 36 years included the establishment of the
embryonic Institution of the Universal House of Justice, and the Institution of the Hands of the Cause, by their teaching or implying that Shoghi Effendi neglected to fulfill the requirements necessary to ensure the continuation of those embryonic sacred Institutions of our Faith to the extent that one of those sacred Bahá’í Institutions, the embryonic Universal House of Justice, became, in their organization, in violation of Bahá’í Holy Text,  headless and deformed, and the other sacred Bahá’í Institution, the Institution of the Hands of the Cause of God elminated altogether in their organization with the result that, according to the Heterodox claim,  it became necessary for the headless Heterodox UHJ to infringe on the “sacred and prescribed” domain of the Guardianship of the Bahá’í Faith by developing  a substitute and parallel institution,  their Board of Continental Counsellors, whose members a living Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith DID NOT “appoint” as instructed infallibly by the Master, and whose members  ARE NOT “submissive” to a living Guardian as instructed by the Master, and whose members a living Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith DOES NOT “continually urge”, as infallibly instructed by the Master in His sacred and immutable Will and Testament.

Not only does The Ruhi manuscript, The Covenant, Unit 2. demonstrate by the erroneous teachings which it contains the unworthiness of its authors as teachers of the Bahá’í Faith, but also  the manner by which  that manuscript displays the inability of its authors to make appropriate comments where necessary, such as their failure, on page 81, when quoting ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s words from page10 of His Holy Will and Testament, to note that He  conspicuously excluded the “Aghsan” and made mention only of the “Afnán” whom He included in His exhortation for “…all the friends and loved ones, one and all to bestir themselves and arise with heart and soul and in one accord, to diffuse the sweet savors of God, to teach His Cause and to promote His Faith.” He (the Master) made no mention of the Aghsan as they had already become unfaithful. Similarly, on page 55, where the Ruhi authors state that “Shoghi Effendi’s mother was the daughter of  ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, making him a direct male descendant of Bahá’u’lláh,…” the Ruhi manuscript authors fail to mention that Shoghi Effendi was not an Aghsan as the Aghsan were the sons of Bahá’u’lláh.

Thus the Ruhi Institute teachers, like their sans-Guardian leaders, have demonstrated the obvious unreliability of any document which they prepare for publication.  Yes, those Ruhi Institute authors of the Pre-publication manuscript entitled: The Covenant, Unit 2 are presenting a document which is not only replete with openly declared statements which are false teachings, and certainly not true teachings of the Bahá’í Faith, but also replete with false teachings which are implied or insinuated. From the viewpoint of all true Bahá’í teachers, that Ruhi Institute manuscript, The Covenant, Unit 2., unquestionably demonstrates its authors to be the essence of untrustworthiness as teachers of the Bahá’í Faith.
