Do you know what is "hotter than summer heat, and sharper than blades of steel?"

O people of Baha!
Subdue the citadels of men’s hearts with the swords of wisdom and of utterance. They that dispute, as prompted by their desires, are indeed wrapped in a palpable veil.

Say: The sword of wisdom is hotter than summer heat, and sharper than blades of steel, if ye do but understand. Draw it forth in My name and through the power of My might, and conquer, then, with it the cities of the hearts of them that have secluded themselves in the stronghold of their corrupt desires. Thus biddeth you the Pen of the All-Glorious, whilst seated beneath the swords of the wayward.

This made me think,feel and then investigate for myself the source:

And further We have said: “Deal not treacherously with the substance of your neighbor. Be ye trustworthy 55 on earth, and withhold not from the poor the things given unto you by God through His grace. He, verily, will bestow upon you the double of what ye possess. He, in truth, is the All-Bounteous, the Most Generous.O people of Baha !


If ye become aware of a sin committed by another, conceal it, that God may conceal your own sin. He, verily, is the Concealer, the Lord of grace abounding. O ye rich ones on earth! If ye encounter one who is poor, treat him not disdainfully. Reflect upon that whereof ye were created..."

Baha'u'llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 55 (using Bahai reference org)

I have now included a direct link to the section in the Book. Indeed this is a powerful Book with powerful quotes. Baha'u'llah goes over His teachings and principles and His claims, challenging His enemies to be fair in their judgment and see for themselves what His teachings are all about.
