Hey Pal I don't know where you are comming from .What about the Hidden Words.I mean to magnify not the faults of others that your own faults be no magnified,Do you think that we can win favor with God Allah by corrupting his words,with our own finte understandings,if we cannot follow the spirit of the teachings . Unity Oneness.Help me to understand why you are ?

Concerning your application of the admonition not to magnify the faults of others, are you saying that violations of the Covenant should be ignored? Are you saying that someone's written or spoken contradictions of the sacred and immutable Will and Testament of the Master should be ignored? When asked to explain how to identify a true Bahá'í, Shoghi Effendi listed amongst the necessary qualifications of an individual this requirement: "...loyal and steadfast adherence to every clause of our Beloved's sacred Will." "every clause". If someone or a group is advocating the rejection of clause/s of the sacred Will and Testament, are you saying that those acts of rejection should be ignored?
The admonition against magnifying the faults of others is not speaking about defense of our Covenant. It is speaking about personal faults of individuals.
It is the duty of every true Bahá'í to defend the Covenant of the Lord of this Age, and that is precisely what Orthodox Bahá'ís are doing.
Cordially,
Ross
