... the stronghold of the Faith of every Baha’i ...

 ' .... the believers need to be deepened in their knowledge and appreciation of the Covenants of both Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha.  This is the stronghold of the Faith of every Baha’i, and that which enables him to withstand every test and the attacks of the enemies outside the Faith, and far more dangerous, insidious, lukewarm people inside the Faith who have no real attachment to the Covenant, and consequently uphold the intellectual aspect of the teachings while at the same time undermining the spiritual foundation upon which the whole Cause of God rests.”
