- In sharing Bahá'u'lláh's message, Bahá'is need to recognize the widespread misconceptions about the nature of religion.
- The diverse and conflicting conceptions of religion have one thing in common: all impose human limitations on something transcendent.
- Humans cannot "capture" God. The Creator interacts with an ever-evolving creation via the appearance of prophetic Figures.

- The Manifestations imbue individuals with Divine attributes, helping them carry forward an "ever advancing civilization".
- Belief is a necessary and irrepressible urge of the human race.
