Strife

Gird up the loins of your endeavor, O people of Bahá, that haply the tumult of religious dissension and strife that agitateth the peoples of the earth may be stilled, that every trace of it may be completely obliterated.

Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 13

Nothing whatsoever can, in this Day, inflict a greater harm upon this Cause than . . . strife . . . among the loved ones of God. Flee them, through the power of God and His sovereign aid, and strive ye to knit together the hearts of men, in His Name, the Unifier, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 8

All the heavenly Books, divine Prophets, sages and philosophers . . . agree that war and strife strike at the foundations of humanity.
