What I believe...

ezs note:  I've given this some thought - no, a great deal of thought - but I've given a great deal of respect and admiration to Baha'u'llah (1817-1892).  I'll be ending this with a quote of Baha'u'llah, as well as His son, Abdu'l Baha, as well as Shoghi Effendi (among others).  If you wish to peruse the Writings more thoroughly, you can see http://bahai-library.com/. (Baha'i Library Online) 

Be fair: Is the testimony of those
 acceptable and worthy of attention
 whose deeds agree with their words,
 whose outward behavior conforms
 with their inner life? The mind is 
bewildered at their deeds, and the soul 
marveleth at their fortitude and bodily
 endurance. Or is the testimony of these
 faithless souls who breathe naught but
 the breath of selfish desire, and who lie
 imprisoned in the cage of their idle fancies,
 acceptable? Like the bats of darkness, they
 lift not their heads from their couch except
 to pursue the transient things of the world,
 and find no rest by night except as they
 labor to advance the aims of their sordid
 life. Immersed in their selfish schemes, they
 are oblivious of the Divine decree. In
 the daytime they strive with all their 
soul after worldly benefits, and in the
 night season their sole occupation is to
 gratify their carnal desires. By what law
 or standard could men be justified in
 cleaving to the denials of such petty-minded
 souls and in ignoring the faith of them
 that have renounced, for the sake of the
 good pleasure of God, their life and
 substance, their fame and renown, their
 reputation and honor?... (Baha’u’llah)
