The Purpose of Bahá’u’lláh’s Covenant: Discussion

How does the individual relate to each of the four purposes of the Covenant. How do each of these purposes serve God’s will and purpose?

Explain the difference between authoritative interpretation and individual interpretation. How do these two things relate to one another in the Bahá’í Faith? Consider this relationship in the process of consultation. Finally, compare the role of authoritative and individual interpretation in the Bahá’í Faith with what you know
about their role in other religions.

What are the implications of the Covenant for teaching the Faith?  How can you “hoist the standard of the Covenant” in your village, town, or city?
