The Purpose of Religions

religionPurpose

“… the fundamental purpose of all religions — including our own — is to bring man nearer to God, and to change his character, which is of the utmost importance.”

From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith, to an individual, cited in Compilations, Lights of Guidance, p. 505.
