The "punishment" - (your word?} or consequences are pretty obvious.
Look at the condition of society today. Yes the world should really
be watching out. If our advances in technology are not married to advances in spiritual development, then we have the capacity to do
serious destruction to human society and to the biosphere far beyond our past capabilities. Hmm maybe we already doing this...
" Only as humanity comes to understand the implications of what occurred during this period of history will it be able to meet the challenges that lie ahead. The value of the contribution we as Bahá'ís can make to the process demands that we ourselves grasp the significance of the historic transformation wrought by the twentieth century."
(Century of Light)
This sentence stands out like a blaring fog horn, " . . . The value of the contribution we as Bahá'ís can make to the process demands that we ourselves grasp the significance of the historic transformation wrought by the twentieth century."
It seems to me they are using the word *demand* rather than 'ask'. The abuse of substances are only the symptoms and not the cause. Our society is great at addressing symptoms and poor at researching underlaying causes. Is it because they are issues to divisive to address? Would Baha'is not be capable of doing it. Why don't we discuss these things on this forum or any Baha'i forum I have been at lately.
BTW is it punishment when a child sticks his hand on a hot stove burner and gets burned? That is pretty similar to what society is doing by ignoring the laws of the new age.
