It is now necessary to reflect a while, that haply that which hath come between the True One and His creatures may be discovered, and the deeds which have been the cause of protest and denial be made known.

Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 163

Please God, that we avoid the land of denial, and advance into the ocean of acceptance, so that we may perceive, with an eye purged from all conflicting elements, the worlds of unity and diversity, of variation and oneness, of limitation and detachment, andwing our flight unto the highest and innermost sanctuary of the inner meaning of the Word of God.

Bahá’u’lláh, Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 160

Sanctify your ears from the idle talk of them that are the symbols of denial and the exponents of violence and anger.

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 73

Shall we not flee from the face of denial, and seek the sheltering shadow of certitude? Shall we not free ourselves from the horror of satanic gloom, and hasten towards the rising light of the heavenly Beauty?

What could have been the reason for such denial and avoidance on their part? What could have induced them to refuse to put off the garment of denial, and to adorn themselves with the robe of acceptance?

Bahá’u’lláh, Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 8

Whatever in days gone by hath been the cause of the denial and opposition of those people hath now led to the perversity of the people of this age.

Unfortunately a man who is ill is not made well just by asserting there is nothing wrong with him! Facts, actual states, are what count.
