Administrative and spiritual excommunication is a punishment for those who leave the deviant cult of Bahaâ€™ism
One of the claims of the deviant cult of Bahaâ€™ism is inventing a teaching called â€œaffection and fellowshipâ€ in the religion. The heads of the deviant cult of Bahaâ€™ism believe that the reason for the emergence of prophets is to create affection among people and to resolve the human differences. â€œBeing irreligious will be better if it causes differences and conflicts.â€
Unfortunately, the Bahaâ€™i heads arenâ€™t honest in their claims because there are many contradictions in the teaching made by them. For instance, the punishment called â€œexcommunicationâ€ contradicts with the teaching of â€œaffection and fellowshipâ€.
Excommunication means removing a person who violence the head commands or oppose out of the Bahaâ€™i community. The excommunication punishment is divided into two ones: The administrative and spiritual.
The administrative excommunication: It means removing the guilty person out of the official meetings and the elections for the members of assemblies in the administrative system of this cult. This punishment is done when the guilty person commits a crime which is against the cult commands of Bahaâ€™ism (such as hiding belief and violating the number of wives); but his/her crime doesnâ€™t cause him her to be considered non-Bahaâ€™i. Executing this kind of excommunication is one of the authorities of the national Bahaâ€™i assembly.
The spiritual excommunication: This kind of excommunication is harder than the administrative one. It means cutting relationship with the violator. In this punishment, the guilty personâ€™s family isnâ€™t allowed to communicate with his/her family members. If the Bahaâ€™i person speaks with the excommunicated person (even if he/she is a family member) he/she will be punished severely. In brief, if a person is excommunicated spiritually in Bahaâ€™ism, he/she will be thrown away rubbish. His/her crime can be opposing with cult leaders.
We can observe that creating such differences (even among families) is due to Bahaâ€™is who believe religion must resolve the differences.
