As Emily Armstrong headed to college at the age of 17, she was a perfectionist, wanted to be an adult, and desired to assert her independence. For her, the ultimate statement of such independence was joining the Bahá’i faith, a religion she believed would ensure perfect order in the world. A “perfect” faith for a perfectionist. But her Bahá’i faith actually revealed to her the impossibility of being perfect in herself, and how she ultimately converted to Christianity.
The Baháʼí Faith teaches the essential worth of all religions and the unity of all people. Established in 1863, it is estimated to have between 5 and 8 million adherents spreads throughout most of the world's countries and territories. Find out how the message of God's love is reaching the Bahá'i world and how you can be involved.
