The Bahá’í Faith

“From the standpoint of justice, EVERY SOUL SHOULD RECEIVE THE REWARD OF HIS ACTIONS, inasmuch as the peace and prosperity of the world depend thereon, even as He saith, exalted be His glory: ‘The structure of world stability and order hath been reared upon, and will continue to be sustained by, the twin pillars of REWARD AND PUNISHMENT.’” ~ The Tabernacle of Unity by Lord Bahá'u'lláh (vegetarian)

“It hath become apparent that a wicked person in those regions hath assailed and attacked both rich and poor, hath harmed and harassed friend and foe alike. […] Had he not acted so, he might not have BECOME AFFLICTED WITH THE RETRIBUTION WHICH SUCH BEHAVIOR ENTAILETH. The day will soon come when he shall fall into distress and be brought to naught. Neither name nor fame shall remain of him.” ~ Light of the World by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá (vegetarian)

“This is the Day that GOD HATH ORDAINED TO BE A BLESSING UNTO THE RIGHTEOUS, A RETRIBUTION FOR THE WICKED, a bounty for the faithful and a fury of His wrath for the faithless and the froward.” ~ Tablets of Lord Bahá'u'lláh (vegetarian)

“So likewise reward and punishment, heaven and hell, requital and RETRIBUTION FOR ACTIONS DONE IN THIS PRESENT LIFE, will stand revealed in that other world beyond.” ~ Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá (vegetarian)

“Erelong shall the heedless and the DOERS OF WICKEDNESS BE REPAID FOR THAT WHICH THEIR HANDS HAVE WROUGHT.” ~ From the Writings of Lord Bahá'u'lláh (vegetarian)

“And yet, what hope! FOR NAUGHT IS REAPED SAVE THAT WHICH HATH BEEN SOWN, and naught is taken up save that which hath been laid down, unless it be through the grace and bestowal of the Lord.” ~ The Summons of the Lord of Hosts by Lord Bahá'u'lláh (vegetarian)


“I am the owner of my actions, heir to my actions, born of my actions, related through my actions, and have my actions as my arbitrator. WHATEVER I DO, FOR GOOD OR FOR EVIL, TO THAT WILL I FALL HEIR.” ~ The Dasadhamma Sutta

“Not in the sky, nor in the middle of the ocean, nor in the cave of a mountain, nor anywhere else, is there a place, where one may escape from the consequences of an evil deed.” ~ The Dhammapada

“ACCORDING TO THE SEED THAT’S SOWN, SO IS THE FRUIT YOU REAP THEREFROM, Doer of good will gather good, Doer of evil, evil reaps, Down is the seed and thou shalt taste the fruit thereof.” ~ The Saṃyukta Nikāya

“Even when he is doing evil, the fool does not realize it. THE IDIOT IS PUNISHED BY HIS OWN DEEDS, like one is scorched by fire.” ~ The Dhammapada


“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, FOR WHATEVER ONE SOWS, THAT WILL HE ALSO REAP.” ~ Holy Bible, Galatians 6:7

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that EACH ONE MAY RECEIVE WHAT IS DUE FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE IN THE BODY, WHETHER GOOD OR EVIL.” ~ Holy Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:10


“Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.” ~ Holy Bible, Proverbs 26:27

Greek Philosophy

“… FOR EVERY WRONG WHICH THEY HAD DONE TO ANYONE THEY SUFFERED TENFOLD; … If, for example, there were any who had been the cause of many deaths, or had betrayed or enslaved cities or armies, or been guilty of any other evil behavior, for each and all of their offenses they received punishment ten times over, AND THE REWARDS OF BENEFICENCE AND JUSTICE AND HOLINESS WERE IN THE SAME PROPORTION.” ~ The Republic by Plato (vegetarian)


“And here they say that a person consists of desires, and as is his desire, so is his will; and as is his will, so is his deed; and WHATEVER DEED HE DOES, THAT HE WILL REAP.” ~ Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

“But with whatever disposition of mind (a man) forms any act, HE REAPS ITS RESULT.” ~ Laws of Manu

“Every creature is born alone and dies alone, and alone ONE EXPERIENCES THE JUST REWARDS OF HIS GOOD AND EVIL DEEDS.” ~ Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam


So, you see, all religions point to the same thing. IF YOU DO GOOD, YOU WILL SEE IT, AND REAP THE REWARD, AND GO TO HEAVEN. IF YOU DO BAD, YOU WILL SEE IT, REAP THE RETRIBUTION, AND GO TO HELL. That’s it, very simple.
