The mission of Baha'i Thought is to promote the creation of a new civilization through the use of new media. It seeks to accomplish this through contributing to social discourse regarding issues of religion, society and culture in light of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah.
Commentary offered on Baha'i Thought does not in any way reflect an authoritative or official view of the Baha'i Faith or any Baha'i Institution. It is neither more nor less that the public expression of the private thoughts of the author in his efforts to understand the various meanings of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah for issues of religion, society and culture.
