    I’m really curious about how you combine a spiritual message with a practical method such as coaching, can you tell me more about that? And also about how the Baha'i Faith informs your work? And how can you actually take your career to the next level based on spiritual principles? Do you have some practical advice for our listeners? What is your view on the Concept that work is worship? What about money…. Would you say making money is a “bad” thing from a spiritual perspective? Can you share your view on the concept of "Being and Doing.” ?      How can people get in touch with you? https://twitter.com/Bahiehk

    Bahaism vs. Christianity

    in Spirituality

    It is no secret that we are headed toward a one world religion and a one world government.  In an age where Christianity is patrolled by the  "thought police" and often accused of "hate speech," it is the task of the Church to examine different belief systems and defend the truth of the Gospel.  We must be ready to give answers, a reason for the hope that we have.  Tonight, Walter Martin takes a closer look at the Bahai religion in the light of biblical truth.
