Marco Oliveira, a lifelonger learner who has participated enthusiastically in several Wilmette Institute courses, had this to say about his two most recent projects.
“I was born in a family that has been following the Roman Catholic Church for many generations. Consequently, since I became Bahá’í in 1984, comparing Bahá’í beliefs to Christian beliefs has been one of my main concerns. In recent years, I have taken several courses offered by the Wilmette Institute in order to analyze aspects of the Bahá’í Faith and Christianity.”
“The course Christianity for Deepening and Dialogue (2019) was an opportunity to develop a systematic study on how the Bahá’í Faith sees the most fundamental Christian beliefs exposed in the Nicaean Creed. This creed was adopted by the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and is still used in many Christian churches. I hope this study becomes a helpful and appealing tool for Bahá’ís in their dialogues with Christian friends.”
