About: The history of the Bahá’í Faith includes incidents that have led to the expulsion or resignation of individuals from the religion. These incidents have involved various departures from obedience to the Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh. This article explores the virtue of obedience in light of the Covenant, examining the context in which contemporary secular notions of obedience have arisen and have influenced the attitudes and behavior of Bahá’ís living in the West and articulating a perspective of obedience as liberation.
