A Needed Movement: Religious Reformation of Islam

The Gladstone Institute has recently published articles by seasoned journalists and writers that present the dangers of Islam and the reaction by political and religious leaders. In particular, I was motivated to write this post after reading articles by two writers highly knowledgeable about Islamic terror events. I would be remiss not to mention they were: Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, author and Italian journalist; and Saied Shoaaib,  a Muslim writer that researches Islamic movements.

In a June 4th, 2017 Gatestone Institute article, Giulio Meotti clearly revealed that Christian religious leaders and political leaders in Europe silently stood by as Islamic terrorists transformed their churches into mosques and killed Christians for not renouncing Christianity and accepting Islam as their religion. He informs us that secular elites and political leaders throughout Europe condemn proselytizing only when it is practiced by Christians, but never when practiced by Muslims.

More shameful, is their reluctance to fight Islamic terrorists for demolishing the hundreds of churches replaced by mosques in many European countries such as England, France and Germany. In Syria and Iraq, Islamic terrorists have demolished Christian churches, committed mass decapitations, raped women and killed men and boys who would not renounce their faith.

Mr. Meotti verified the eventual demise of the Christian religion in Europe by writing, “It is impossible for any observer to deny that Christianity is descending into a terminal crisis in Europe. Catholic leaders in the Netherlands estimate that two-thirds of their 1,600 churches will be out of use in a decade, and that 700 Dutch Protestant churches will be closed within four years. The Church of England closes around 20 churches a year. The Catholic Church in Germany has closed about 515 churches over the last ten years. You find the same scenario everywhere in Europe.”

On June 5th, 2017, Saied Shoaaib presented two alternatives to defeat Islam: (1) expose its true nature by supporting and circulating the views of liberal Muslim scholars who reject the premise of an extremist political Islam; (2) imams in Western countries must be held to the same standard as members of other professions by being required to receive occupational licenses that support objectives to attain a peaceful life and integrate Muslims into other societies without fear by Islamic fundamentalists.

Mr. Shoaaib identified liberal Muslim scholars who reject the premise of extremist, political Islam. Many share the conclusion, “that the “caliphate” is merely a project to colonize more land, as all the old empires did, and that the hostility toward Jews connected to the Muhammed’s battle with the Banu Qurayza in the 7th century should have ended long ago.”

We Must Understand the Islamic Problem in Order to Solve the Problem.

Efforts by writers and scholars are informative but can they motivate world leaders of free democratic countries to no longer tolerate an Islamic cancer that spreads and distorts their values of humanity? The answer is NO. Toleration is a politically correct mentality that must be replaced with an education to UNDERSTAND the Islamic threat and WHY it has grown to metathesize into a religion of hate that will not tolerate other religious beliefs.

So HOW do we educate people all over the globe about the Islamic threat? To write about the many abominable attacks by Muslim terrorists serves to identify the Islamic threat. But now people must investigate HOW to STOP this threat from continuing to spread.

How to Stop the Islamic Terrorism Initiated by an Egyptian President?

On January 1, 2015, the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi spoke to Islamic scholars from Al-Azhar, the highest center of Sunni Muslim learning.  His message was for Muslim leaders to rethink religious discourse and “purge it of flaws” that negatively affect Islam. Before this author presents an effective way to STOP Islamic expansion, it is well to emphasize the impassioned speech of this outstanding president who is not only pious but a perceptive intellectual leader.

“I say and repeat, again, that we are in need of a religious revolution. You imams are responsible before Allah. The entire world is waiting on you. The entire world is waiting for your word … because the Islamic world is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost. And it is being lost by our own hands,”

“We need a revolution of the self, a revolution of consciousness and ethics to rebuild the Egyptian person — a person that our country will need in the near future,”

“It’s inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire Islamic world to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. Impossible that this thinking — and I am not saying the religion — I am saying this thinking,” He continued: “This is antagonizing the entire world. It’s antagonizing the entire world! Does this mean that 1.6 billion people (Muslims) should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants — that is 7 billion — so that they themselves may live? Impossible!​”

President el-Sisi alluded to, but did not specifically identify the “source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world.” Indirectly, he said, “this thinking” that Muslims hold as most sacred “is antagonizing the entire world.” That sacred source, indoctrinated into the Muslim thinking mind, is the Qur’an. It is quite plausible that all the religious leaders and scholars listening to President el-Sisi knew he was referring to the Qur’an as the sacred source.

It is essential that Islamic scholars and Muslim followers comprehend and react to President el-Sisi in a positive manner by deeply examining HOW the Qur’an can be revised to replace the many verses that incite hatred, bigotry, violence and murder of those that follow another faith with the Christian command to “Love one another” (John 13:34, 15:12 and 15:17).

To verify that the source President el-Sisi did not wish to name is indeed the Qur’an, people need to read Allah, We, Our and Us. It provides a history how Islam became a Theocratic Empire in just 29 years and reveals the abominable verses of the Qur’an. The verses provided are unaltered to clearly show they incite hatred, bigotry, violence, and the killing of people who have other religious beliefs. More importantly, this book indicates HOW a peaceful solution may be attained.

Answer to Stop Islamic Expansion and Terrorism

Ultimately, HOW can Islam be transformed to become a peaceful religion that allows its followers to respect the religious beliefs of other people and successfully integrate themselves into the cultures of other freedom loving countries? The ANSWER is a Religious Reformation of Islam. President el-Sisi urged Islamic religious leaders to endorse a Religious Revolution, which connotes combat rather than improvement.  But WHAT should be the message of an Islamic Religious Reformation? It is simply three words announced by a man of God as a command, LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

To STOP Islamic expansion that forges forward with hatred, bigotry, violence and murder is to Revise the Qur’an. But HOW can this Reformation Movement be successfully implemented peacefully without causing World War III?

Answer: All powerful leaders, wealthy businessmen, financially endowed humanitarians, and of course, the National Media in America and many other countries must join their resources together to spread a powerful propaganda, or advertising campaign, to educate and inform people WHY Islam is a danger to peace-loving people and WHY the Qur’an must be revised. Key for successful implementation of these objectives is to UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM by reading Allah, We, Our and Us.

The video below by Simon and Garfunkel emphasizes the need to read this book and understand Why the Qur’an must be revised.

Islam Religious Reformation Implementation

To initiate the Religious Reformation campaign, aimed at having Muslim religious leaders revise the Qur’an, many thousands of copies of Allah, We, Our and Us need to be printed for distribution in many countries. Hopefully, it is the wealthy businessmen and women, and humanitarians that will purchase the book and have it distributed to all educational institutions and government organizations in many countries. The objective is to educate and inform Muslims, and people world-wide, about the dangers of Islam and have them “see” the need to revise the Qur’an.

The counterintelligence agencies of countries threaten by Islamic terrorism can effectively defeat Islamic propaganda efforts by endorsing and promoting their people to read historical and factual information in Allah, We, Our and Us. National media in the U.S. and counterintelligence agencies, such as the FBI and CIA, to name a few, can be proactive in supporting the Islam Religious Reformation by encouraging their personnel to use the book to advance countermeasures against Islamic propaganda that incites terrorism.

As the author of this book, any profits from the sale of the book will go towards the Reformation Campaign. This book is available as a FREE READ by clicking the link below,

The ignorance of Islamic ideology by people in America and many countries is due to a failure of learning history about Islam and having objective discussions of the Qur’an. Allah, We, Our and Us provides information that will stimulate perceptive and compassionate Islamic religious leaders to acknowledge that scripture is not encased in concrete but must be revised as Muslims become more educated and knowledgeable of the world.

Realistic Perception of Islamic Religious Leaders and Scholars

History reveals an inability of religious leaders to eliminate abominable verses and endorse the command to “love one another’ in the Qur’an.   The inability by Islamic religious leaders to adapt to change is due to an ingrained indoctrination that blocks any appreciation for the religious beliefs of others and an open mind to improve the Qur’an. Few Islamic scholars are capable of looking from outside the cage of indoctrinated beliefs to “see” the flaws in the Qur’an. Many Islamic scholars have presented ways to make Islam acceptable to all people but were killed for apostasy. One example was Mahmud Muhammad Taha, a Muslim reformer who dared to die for his convictions.

The Islamic Challenge for All Muslims

Muslims around the world must loudly insist their religious leaders Revise the Qur’an. Such a mandate can be accomplished by organizing a Religious Reformation of Islam. To NOT revise the Qur’an by eliminating its many abominable verses and endorsing the command to love one another, Islamic religious leaders will be responsible for the next World War.  Countries around the world will no longer tolerate the spread of Islam.  They have experienced that Islam causes discontent wherever it settles. As indirectly announced by President el-Sisi, it is the Qur’an that Muslims regard as most sacred and is the source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. His words are worth repeating to all Muslims and their leaders,

“The entire world is waiting on you. The entire world is waiting for your word … because the Islamic world is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost. And it is being lost by our own hands,”

A Word to Muslims and Islamic Scholars

This challenge will be most difficult for Islamic scholars and Muslim leaders as revealed by the mindset of the Islamic scholar, Dr. Ahmed Subhi Mansour.   In his book, The Quran: Sufficient as a Source of Islamic Legislation,”  he advocates what Muslims are indoctrinated to believe, which is that the Qur’an reflects the mighty words of God and is the only book to which the Muslim must hold fast to the exclusion of other books.

“Some of us see that belief in the Qur’an alone is enough, but see no harm in believing in other books with the Qur’an which the imams wrote and ascribed to the prophet (peace be upon him!). However, if we were to reflect on the mighty words of God in the honourable Qur’an, we would become sure that the Qur’an is the only book to which the Muslim must hold fast to the exclusion of other books. We would also become sure that the Qur’an is not in need of these human authored books; for the Qur’an has left nothing out, and it came down clarifying everything, and in it came the details of everything needed in clarity and precision.”

It is the above mindset that restricts the ability of Muslins to accept other forms of worship or beliefs. Dr. Mansour is captive to such a mindset. He has been deeply indoctrinated with the Qur’an and has completely accepted its verse 9:33. It indelibly prints on the minds of all Muslims that Islam is the true religion and Allah will make it prevail over all other religions with the words:

Sura 9:33. “He (Allah) it is Who sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam) that He may make it prevail over every other religion, even though those who associate partners with Allah may dislike it.”

Note the contradiction in Dr. Mansour’s quote above. He writes that the Qur’an was written by imams and ascribed to the prophet, but with the next thought, he writes the honourable Qur’an are the mighty words of God. Did the imams write portions of the Qur’an in addition to the words given Muhammad from God’s Archangel Gabriel? There is undisputable evidence in Allah, We, Our and Us (3.3.12) that a party of religious men wrote many portions of the Qur’an.

Islamic scholars are well schooled to know that the Qur’an was conceived through Muhammad’s exposure to Hebrew and Christian beliefs. Verses for the Qur’an were conceived by Muhammad, as with other God inspired men, to raise his people to the next level of spiritual worship. Astute Islamic scholars know that beliefs of each religion were founded by righteous men, inspired by their belief in God, to provide a moral code for their people. Will imams, caliphs and mullahs work with their Islamic scholars to realize that beliefs can be changed; they are not encased in concrete.  Can they confront the need to revise the Qur’an to raise Muslims to a higher level of love for all mankind?

All People Must Be Part of the Islamic Reformation

All people must assist Muslims to acknowledge that the Qur’an must be revised to advocate the command to love one another. Perhaps to “see” why it is necessary, they must first read Allah, We, Our and Us. A book that was not written for profit but to inform and educate people so that their minds are not warped with beliefs that cause bigotry, hatred, violence and the murder of people with other religious beliefs.

Revise the Qur’an or Begin WWIII

Islamic leaders and scholars must take the next step in advancing Muslims to a higher level of spirituality that promotes love of all people by revising the Qur’an. To NOT take on this noble effort, which advocates the command to love one another, is to cause continued Islamic terrorism and eventually, World War III.

Introduction to Future of God Amen

The opening paragraphs below originally appeared in my first self-published book titled, Legacy of a Father.  It was my first attempt as an author and it became the progenitor of three books that followed: Future of God Amen, AMEN, and Allah, We, Our and Us.   The following paragraphs are presented because they reflect my desire and passion to reveal the development of three major religions and how mankind conceived the belief in one-universal God.  Overviews and book reviews are presented on website:

http://www.futureofgodamen.com

1.0    Reasons for this Book

The evolution of our belief in one God is a very sensitive topic.  For the open-minded reader, this book will take you on a journey that will increase your knowledge of the past and help put into perspective the relationship you may now have with your own personal God.  To religious leaders, priests, ministers, rabbis, imams, mullahs and devout worshippers, this book offers a challenge to accept each other’s religious traditions and open your institutions to each other with friendship and love, for in reality, we all worship the same God.

Initially, I set out to write this book for my children, Karen Beth, Alisa, Lori Gweyn and Linda Diane.  As a father, I felt obligated to leave them with many of my personal thoughts about God.  In my youth, I met some young women who harbored a sense of fear and were constrained to react favorably to a kiss.  They received such a strict religious teaching that it was largely responsible for their frigid response.  To ameliorate this fear-induced reaction, my wife Diane and I tempered our girls’ strict Catholic instruction with a common sense upbringing that prepared them for worldly experiences.  Religious instruction that promoted a sense of morality for our girls was important to us, but we knew we could not control the spiritual aspects of their beliefs because we felt that every individual develops a personal conception of God based upon intellect, sensitivity, and experience.

It did not take long for me to learn that I was on a mission to write not only for my daughters, but to share the knowledge I acquired about the evolution of God with others.  Below are the many reasons that have motivated and energized me to write this book.  I have no hidden agenda.  My desire is to have all people from our different religious institutions, leaders and worshippers alike, accept and honor each other’s traditions and beliefs.  It is my hope that by acknowledging that we all pray to the same God, we may succeed in putting aside our differences; enjoy each other’s traditions; and even attend each other’s houses of worship.

The challenge will be hard for many of our religious leaders, who are more used to making war against those with different religious opinions than they are used to sitting down and breaking bread with them.  However, they have the power to bring together all God’s children and thereby truly fulfill their professional mission.    This challenge does not stop with religious leaders, for it is the millions of their followers who will ultimately control the direction of their religious institutions and determine the course of our future relationships with one another.  This awesome but worthy outcome, discussed in the final chapter, will certainly lead to peace among the religious warring factions now responsible for the murder of people throughout the Middle East and other parts of our world.

1.1   The Allegorical Tree, an Acknowledgement

At the tender age of six, I received my introduction to religion. I was sitting in the second seat of the second row of my classroom in PS (Public School) 121, an elementary school in the heart of Manhattan in New York City.  To my right, hanging on the wall, was a large 2 by 3 foot picture of a tree.  It remained only a tree to me until one morning, Mr. Levy, the principal of the school, visited our classroom.

Mr. Levy, a handsome and charismatic man in his mid-thirties, caught sight of the tree and gave a very intriguing talk about how the Jewish religion was the father of the Catholic and Islamic religions.  He explained that the trunk of the tree represented the Jewish religion, its two prominent limbs the Christian and Islamic religions, and its branches the offshoots into sects and various denominations.  He showed how the major religions branched off into denominations and sects, such as: Protestant, Baptist, Episcopal, Methodist, Mormon, Jehovahs’ Witnesses, Sunnis and Shi’as.  Even Judaism, he pointed out, has several divisions, such as Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Movements.   I never forgot Mr. Levy and his enthusiastic talk.

After my auspicious introduction to religious thought, several years later I received a formal indoctrination in the Catholic religion.  In my later teenage years, I attended the services of other religions and became curious about their beginnings.  This interest in various religions encouraged me to listen to rabbis and ministers while serving two active years in the U.S. Army, and an additional year during the Berlin crisis.  Some years later, after graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering from the City University of New York, I actively read such anthologies as “Man’s Religions” by John B. Noss and, “Man and His Gods” by Homer W. Smith.  Upon reading these books, I became fascinated with the Egyptian religion.  I proceeded to research the spiritual and moral beliefs of this ancient religion by reading, “The Book of the Dead” by E.A. Wallis Budge.

Egypt’s old, tried, and proven religion not only held many of the moral teachings we practice today, but it also provided for the belief in a hereafter and the concept of a soul.  I had often wondered where the concept of a soul originated.  It was gratifying to find that the Egyptians developed this concept.  The Egyptians envisioned two entities that came to be characterized as souls; the ka and the ba.  The ka represented the spiritual force of any sub-stance that also imbued its unique characteristics. It formed the individuality and personality of a person or thing.  The ba represented a spiritual soul that accompanied the ka to the hereafter for judgment and supported it with food and air within its tomb.

Research revealed that Menes founded the 1st Egyptian dynasty about 3400 BCE 1.  Its religion had multiple gods.  An attempt to replace their polytheistic beliefs into one, all-powerful sun-god was made by the pharaoh Ikhnaton (born as Amenhotep IV) who reigned for 17 years between 1375 and 1358 BCE 2.  The Egyptian priests tried to bury this monotheistic belief after Ikhnaton died in 1362 BCE.  However, the belief in one all-powerful God was too strong a concept to be denied.

About 108 years later, Moses capitalized on the concept of one God and walked out of Egypt with a religious following surpassing 600,000 people.  Moses, brought up in the house of a pharaoh, undoubtedly received the finest education, including education in the Egyptian religion.  It would be reasonable to conclude that the sacred writings and prayers of the Egyptian religion indoctrinated Moses and influenced what he taught and wrote.  Prior to Moses, the Jews had neither written scriptures nor written words that extolled the belief in one God.  In fact, Homer W. Smith in his book, Man and His Gods, indicates that the first 5 books of the Jerusalem Bible, or Torah, were not written for use for Israelite worshipers before 750 BCE (500 years after the Moses Exodus from Egypt).3

After learning of the above historical events that linked Moses to Egyptian indoctrination, and that the depth of Egyptian spiritual beliefs developed the concept of the soul and its possible entrance into an eternal hereafter, I concluded that the two by three foot picture of the allegorical tree was not completely accurate.  I now envision a tree that has become more meaningful and realistic.  Below the trunk of the tree, beneath the ground, I see the Egyptian religion as its roots.  That is, it was the Egyptian religion that provided for the conception and initial development of the Hebrew religion.  It became clear to me that it was the Egyptian concept of an omnipotent and unknowable God, the creator of all things, which became the same God of all the monotheistic religions.

This revelation has been largely responsible for motivating me to share my thoughts with you.  You see, I truly believe in giving credit where credit is due.  It is a dishonorable and deceitful act when a person or group uses knowledge gained and does not acknowledge its source.  However, we may be forgiving, since religious leaders may have unconsciously borrowed from our Egyptian ancestors and many may be simply ignorant of the historical development of the ideas they attempt to communicate to their congregations.

The concept of one God, introduced by the unheralded pharaoh, Ikhnaton, was an easy matter for people, be they Egyptians, Jews or other foreigners to gradually accept as a natural belief.  How-ever, the Egyptian priests, except those who believed in Ikhnaton’s revised conception of God, did not eagerly accept this concept.  They resisted this new belief by desecrating Ikhnaton’s tomb and removing his name from all temples and monuments.  This new concept was a threat to their profession. It would nullify the practice of the religious rites and sacred traditions of worship of the many local gods that had already been ingrained in the Egyptian belief system.  In spite of this resistance by the Egyptian priests and the failure of religious institutions to give credit to its origin, the Egyptian roots of our belief in one God must be acknowledged.

Indoctrination of the Muslim Mind

Article Description – Indoctrination of the Muslim Mind

This article clearly shows how the psychological use of “We, Our and Us” forms the psyche of Muslim minds to believe they are commanded by Allah.  It creates a feeling of unity with the Creator and the compulsion to impose this unity on all people with the altruistic belief that they are promoting the integration of mankind with the Creator.

This article opens up a forum for all people interested in resolving the looming threat of Islam by identifying the problem and presenting solutions to avert WWIII.  A silent response signifies fear, or one is not aware of, the killing of millions of people in the name of a rogue religion – Islam.  It is time to ‘Wake Up’ or lose the ability to voice your opinion.  The alternative is to become a Muslim and find out the hard way that you have been made a fool to believe in a God Allah that is willing to murder His creations.  Do not be fooled by the liberal and Muslim media by easily accepting their Islamic propaganda.   All people need to educate themselves about Islam and the Qur’an.  A good start begins by reading this article and to investigate ways to eliminate a religion that teaches its followers to deny the religious beliefs of others.

Indoctrination of the Muslim Mind

A question raised about Islam is, “Why do Muslim extremists force their Islamic religion on people with different religious beliefs?”  An answer will help to understand why this prevalent problem exists so that efforts can be made to solve the problem.  A problem so encompassing that Muslims will even commit suicide to kill nonbelievers of Islam.

The scripture used to indoctrinate people to become Muslims, whereby they commit total surrender to Allah, is The Qur’an.  Imams, caliphs, and mullahs teach that Islam is the true religion, the religion of truth, and that Islam will prevail over every other religion.

It is this indoctrination that forms the psyche of the Muslim mind.  It creates a feeling of unity with the Creator and the compulsion to impose this unity on all people with the altruistic belief that they are promoting the integration of mankind with the Creator.

But how is The Qur’an implemented to become the instrument for effective indoctrination?  There are three efforts that insure success of the indoctrination process.  First, imams, caliphs and mullahs use The Qur’an to teach that Islam is the religion of truth, the true religion, and will prevail over all others. Secondly, The Qur’an prescribes warnings, punishments, and admonishments that will result in death of nonbelievers and apostates for not following Islam.  The third is to subjugate the thinking mind of Muslims to prayer at least five times a day in a submissive position of surrender to Allah.  The combination of constant brain-washing of possessing a superior religion, intimidation caused by fear of loss of their lives, and submissiveness to Allah, forms the mental psyche of the initiate to be easily led by Islamic religious leaders.

Prayer is for many people a way of appealing to their God and with such reflection may be able to alter their behavior and find strength to endure difficult times.  But when prayer is used to subject the mind only on the One God Allah, whereby one’s whole being is totally dedicated to following His commands, then one can easily be manipulated.  Excessive praying at least times a day, head bowed to the ground, instills in the believer a subservient mindset, which enables a religious leader to command the follower to perform abominable acts against innocent people.

The following Figure illustrates that the duty to pray is so ingrained in the believer that they will even pray on the city streets of New York.

obama-is-changing-the-face-of-the-usa

Indoctrination of the Muslim mind begins soon after birth and into the early years of mental growth.  This is why even the most intelligent of Muslim men and women find it hard to renounce the Islamic faith.  The featured photo of this post combines two photos taken from a well written article titled, Islamization of the Muslim Mind by Mumin Salih, which appeared July 13, 2009 on the Internet.

Still, how it is that intelligent people are successfully indoctrinated into the beliefs of Islamic dogma when the past history of Islam reveals it has gained its large numbers of followers not by love and compassion but by brutal force with only two alternatives: pay a tax (extortion) or follow the teachings of Islam.  A negative response results in death and confiscation of one’s property and wealth.

In light of Islam’s growth by conquest of countries and subjugating people, denying their religion and traditional culture, it is surprising that Islam continues to spread like a cancer. The reality is that good, hard-working people who are only interested in meeting the necessities of life are no match for armies of indoctrinated men that find it easier to live off the wealth and property of others.

But we again question how is it intelligent educated men follow the dogma of Islam?  Many have become professors, scientists, and writers whereby they continue to praise and support their Islamic religion.  The answer is a simple one – constant indoctrination conditions the mind to accept a particular world view; one of superiority that is instilled with the precepts that Islam is the true religion, the religion of truth, and shall prevail over all other religions (Qur’an 9:29 and 9:33).

There is a fourth component that accomplishes successful indoctrination; it is an insidious inherent undertone of The Qur’an that projects into the Muslim mind an affinity with the Creator.  This undertone is accomplished with the use of pronouns, “We, Our and Us.”  They are used to identify the Islamic god Allah.  The use of We throughout the Qur’an has caused much controversy because Muslim religious leaders have obfuscated and interpreted it as meaning it is a singular entity, the one God Allah.  They insist this is simply use of the “Royal We” by Allah, which is similar to royal kings in addressing and commanding their followers.  They insist that although “We” refers to Allah He is “one God” and should not be associated with any of His followers or angels.

But in The Qur’an we find that this insistence is not valid.  Many suras (verses) appear in The Qur’an that reveal We associates Allah with a group of men that enforce the commands, punishments, and warnings of Allah.  To unravel this conundrum of whether We is Allah or a party of men, it is best to use the suras themselves to provide an answer.  The following suras were taken from the earliest English translation by Muhammad Zafrulla Khan.  Readers of The Qur’an should avoid translations of the past 20 to 30 years because they have been altered to be ‘Politically Correct’ and actually change the original intent.

The Qur’an sanctions a Party of Men to implement its dogma. These men enforce the punishments and atrocities cited in The Qur’an and kill people believing that they are commanded by Allah. This is made possible by use of ‘We, Our and Us;’ a technique in The Qur’an that allows the Muslim mind to associate their actions with Allah.  The authorization of such a party occurs in the following sura.  The suras are provided to allow the reader to ponder, think, and evaluate for themselves the veracity of the conclusions that follow.

Sura 3:105. Let there be from among you a party whose business it should be to invite goodness, to enjoin equity and to forbid evil. It is they who shall prosper.

We find in the following sura that this “party” are men arrogant enough to believe that they can change, abrogate and forget the commands of God with even better commands.

Sura 2:106-108. Whatever previous commandment We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We reveal in this Qur’an one better or the like thereof: Knowest thou not that Allah has full power to do all that He wills?

This sura does not identity the one god Allah as abrogating, cause to be forgotten, or replace a command with one better – but reveals a Party of Men.  Why would Allah associate Himself with followers to revise or rescind any of His God-given commands?

Below, we find that indeed there is a Party of Men, which will henceforth be referred to as the We Party.  In the following sura, Islamic religious leaders claim that “We” is Allah.  But this is a false claim as the following sura clearly identifies a Party of Men that kills people while asleep at night or in the afternoon.

Sura 7:5-7. Little is it that you heed. How many a town have We destroyed! Our punishment came upon their dwellers by night or while they slept at noon. When Our punishment came upon them all they could utter was: We are indeed wrongdoers.

Any intelligent person can discern that it could not be Allah, the All Forgiving and Ever Merciful God, that destroys towns and inflict punishment while dwellers are asleep at night or at noon.  It is clear that only a Party of Men, identified as “We and Our” would cause such punishment.

To resolve any question that a Party of Men and NOT Allah inflicts punishments and death, the following sura in The Qur’an unquestionably provides the answer.  It clearly reveals that a religious leader or military commander, not Allah, motivates an army to kill disbelievers.

Sura 8:16-19. O ye who believe, when you encounter an hostile force of the disbelievers, turn not your backs on them. Whoso turns his back on them on such an occasion, unless maneuvering for battle or turning to join another company, shall draw upon himself the wrath of Allah and hell shall be his abode. An evil resort it is.

Thus on the day of Badr it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them; and it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it, that He might confer a great favour upon the believers. Surely, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. That is so; and Allah will surely undermine the design of the disbelievers.

Clearly, the above sura was written by a commander as one reads of the strategy not to turn and run when encountering a hostile force unless it is necessary to maneuver for battle by turning and joining another company. But notice in the second paragraph that the commander uses his leadership to strengthen the resolve of his troops by stating, “it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them.” Clearly, these are not the words of Allah but a commander or a powerful religious leader.  The commander insights his men with the belief, “it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it.

The commander’s technique of using Allah as sanctioning atrocities has been a successful form of brainwashing or leadership to convince his fighters that the killings were not through their own volition but by Allah who supports and directs their cause. This mind trick is another way of convincing people that they are not responsible for their misdeeds but some outside force, which they attribute to Allah.  The commander then reinforces his ability to lead his army by reminding them of the rewards in Heaven, “that He might confer a great favour upon the believers.”

The above suras demonstrate that the use of “We, Our and Us” associates Allah with a Party of Men.  It is a psychological technique used to motivate Muslims to perform the abominations described in The Qur’an.
The We, Our and Us psychological technique is a key method to the successful indoctrination of Muslims to believe it is Allah that directs their actions.  This technique, together with the incessant indoctrination of praying five times a day to Allah fortifies submissive behavior of Muslims to follow their religious leaders.  Beginning at an early age, indoctrination is highly effective and affects even the most intelligent of men and women whereby they find it difficult to refute the dogma instilled in them.

Indoctrination Abuses

Indoctrination is used to instill sound moral behavior for citizens of a civilization to live together in harmony.  But it can be used to develop robotic minds that are transformed to inflict terror and violence.  Ones’ mental blackboard is programmed to deny any view that is contrary to inculcated dogma, which instills a sense of superiority over others.  The teaching that Islam is the true religion and will prevail over all other religions creates a mindset that people who are not Muslims are inferior for they are not following the all forgiving and ever merciful God.

The following Figure illustrates the indoctrination of a young boy to kill others, and even themselves, in promoting the cause to follow Allah and His messenger Muhammad.  The photo was obtained from an article by Jenny Stanton and Jay Akbar published March 11, 2015 titled, “How ISIS is creating a ‘generation of monsters: The sickening tactics terror horde uses to groom vulnerable children into killers and suicide bombers.”  This Figure reveals there is no age limit for religious extremists to indoctrinate a child to become a killer.

Young jihadi: It seems there is no age limit to attend an Islamic State school where children are ‘brainwashed’

It is to be expected that indoctrination of the Muslim mind starting with the new born is the most extensive brainwashing process a human can ever be subjected to.  Islamization of the Muslim mind is a process that starts immediately after birth and continues throughout his/her life. After birth, an adult holds the child and recites the azan*, the call for prayers, directly into ears of the new-born. The moral of the practice is to prime the child’s hearing with the blessed names of Allah and Muhammad. Indeed, that call for prayers soon becomes the most frequently heard sound by Muslim children. The azan is repeated five times a day in every mosque in the area. If there are ten mosques in the area, which is common nowadays, the azan would be heard, through the loud speakers, fifty times a day. In addition, the new-born’s ears will get used to hearing the endless recitations of the Quran that go on almost continuously (Paragraph by Mumin Salih referenced above.)

The Adhan (Azan) is the call to prayer.  Below is the Arabic and English translation.

Allahu Akbar
God is Great (Said four times)

Ashhadu anna la ilaha illa Allah
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God. (Said two times)

Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God.  (Said two times)

The Figure below is photo of a boy about to shoot an ISIS hostage in the forehead.  After the deadly shot, the boy shoots him three more times, points his gun to the sky in celebration, and with one final shot shouts  ‘Allahu Akbar!’  This footage of a child carrying out such a brutal execution has sent shock waves around the world.  People should not be surprised that brainwashing of youngsters by ISIS and other Islamic organizations is key to their ongoing objective to dominate the world.

The above Figures illustrate that Muslim extremists use The Qur’an as a manual for indoctrination of young minds to fulfill many of the suras (verses) that instill bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people who do not follow Islam.  The suras presented in this article are a small subset of many, many more provided in the historical novel Allah, We, Our and Us, which may be obtained as a free read on the following link:

Nicholas Ginex Index

Conclusions:

  • The Qur’an is used as a manual by a Party of Men to indoctrinate young minds to establish an Islamic Caliphate and dominate the world.
  • Indoctrination of young minds begins shortly after birth and forms a mindset that makes the initiate a follower and slave to the commands of its leaders.
  • Due to the indoctrinated mind of Muslims they will not assimilate the values of any country that does not follow the teachings of Islam.
  • Muslims are indoctrinated to impose their religion on nonbelievers by force and are willing kill them, and themselves in suicide attacks, in their cause to follow Allah and His messenger Muhammad.

Solutions:

  • People in all free-democratic countries who enjoy the freedoms of speech and individual liberty to follow their aspirations and make their own choices in life must reject Islam; a religion that breeds bigotry, hate, violence and killing of nonbelievers of Islam.
  • Islamic leaders must revise or rewrite The Qur’an to incorporate God’s greatest command.  It was announced by a Man of God three times – love one another.  Failure to revise The Qur’an with God’s greatest command will result in continued bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people around the world.
  • Every country that desires to retain its culture and values of morality must direct an ultimatum on their Islamic leaders:
Revise The Qur’an to advocate love one another.

If Islamic religious leaders fail to incorporate God’s greatest command to love one another then they and their followers are to be deported to a Muslim country of their choice.  Another alternative is to institute strict rules, as done in Xinjiang, China to halt the spread of Islam.

On December 16 of 2008, Xinjiang China began enforcing the following laws and regulations restricting the practice of Islam.

China Crackdown: Islam could disappear in 10 Years

  • Prayers are banned in public areas, private hajj trips not allowed, teaching of the Qur’an not allowed in private, students and government officials forced to eat during Ramadan.  In Khotan, signs posted in front of the grand mosque say the weekly Friday prayer sermon must not extend beyond a half-hour.
  • Prayers in public areas outside the mosque are forbidden and residents are banned from worshipping at mosques outside their town.
  • Under the rules, imams are banned from teaching the Qur’an in private and only official versions of the Qur’an are allowed.
  • Studying Arabic is only allowed at special government schools.  Government workers are banned from showing the slightest sign of religious devotion.  For example, a Muslim civil servant could be sacked for donning hijab.

If Islamic religious leaders, and leaders of other faiths, fail to follow God’s command to teach their followers to love one another then it becomes highly probable that a Third World War becomes inevitable.

All freedom-loving countries will do well to limit the expansion and incursion of Islam, a rogue religion that indoctrinates its followers to eliminate the religious beliefs of other people.  No scripture of God should be used as a manual to forcefully subjugate people to follow a religion through intimation and fear.  Islamic religious leaders can correct Muslim abominable behavior by acknowledging and teaching God’s last and greatest command – love one another.  The following link presents who announced God’s greatest command.

Future of God Amen

AMEN – The Beginning of the Creation of God

AMEN-Creation of God

Hello dear reader,

I begin this article with Figure 1, which provides an overview of how mankind developed the belief in one-universal God.  Few people have had the benefits of being taught history of ancient civilizations and it’s for certain that religious leaders of the Judaic, Christian and Islamic faiths have not instructed their followers about the beginnings of their beliefs.  To learn how these religions developed their beliefs based upon facts and findings, I begin with an opening statement by Jesus Christ from Revelation 3:14, wherein he acknowledged Amen as the beginning of the creation of God.

These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness,              the beginning of the creation of God.

The words of Jesus are profound, albeit, a revelation that has not been acknowledged by Judaic, Christian and Islamic religious leaders.  And yet, they and their followers announce Amen at the end of a prayer, supplication, giving thanks, asking for His protection in challenging times, and reverently sing His name in houses of worship.

It is not my intent to alter your beliefs.  My objective is to inform and educate people about facts that have been surfaced by scholars of religion and highly respected Egyptologists.   They have sacrificed their time and given their lives to surface facts and findings that religious institutions, through ignorance or intent, have not revealed to their followers.

I take you back through the centuries to provide a history of one of the greatest civilizations built by mankind.  In the lands of Egypt, along the Nile River, entered Africans who built homes, irrigation canals, pyramids,  and temples where they worshipped many different gods.  But it was through their beliefs in renewal of the Nile each year that evoked the wonder and veneration for those gods that enriched their lives.  It would be an injustice for me to write in an article a history of how the Africans, later to be called Egyptians after the name of their country, developed the belief in many gods.  They have left a legacy of advancing their multible god beliefs into one-universal God and establishing the first formal religion, which is documented on the walls of their temples, pyramids and obelisks.

For a detailed history of Ancient Egypt, I recommend James H. Breasted book, A History of Egypt.  This book served as the groundwork, along with books  by other great scholars and Egyptologists, that served to widen my knowledge about the beginning of man’s belief in God and the growth of the major religions of today.  To wet your appetite for further study, I have provided Figure 1. Hopefully, it will motivate your curiosity to read Future of God Amen and AMEN, the Beginning of the Creation of God.   These books offer a perspective of man’s development in the belief in God and  bibliographies of the many outstanding books whose authors gave me the gift of knowledge I now impart to you.  Overviews and book reviews are presented on website:

http://www.futureofgodamen.com

Referring to Figure 1, 2600 BCE, I introduce you to the hymn, The Creation by Atum.  Major extracts of this hymn, as with the others that will be mentioned, are provided in the two books referenced above.  Atum was the first god that created the first four gods of the Great Ennead (nine gods): Shu, god of air; Tefnut, god of moisture; Geb, god of earth; and Nut, goddess of the sky.  The Priesthood advanced the idea that their city god Atum-Kheprer, who rose out of the waters of chaos (Nun), brought the first gods into being.   This was a very perceptive concept that recognizes Atum as emanating from two important elements, the heat of the sun, associated with Kheprer and water, associated with Nun.  The Egyptian mind was resourceful and reflective to include the gods of air (Shu) and moisture (Tefnut); for without the elements of air and moisture, life, as we know it, could not be sustained.

A thousand or more years later, between 1550 and 1350 BCE, The high priests of Amon in Thebes wrote A Hymn to Amon-Re.  It professes joy in praise of Amon-Re to the height of heaven and the width of the earth.  With this hymn the Priesthood centralized and unified their religion by worshiping Amon-Re as the supreme god who was the “Maker of all Mankind, Creator and Maker of all that is.” 

By 1370 BCE, Amenhotep IV was the first pharaoh to break with the priesthood’s worship of multiple gods by transforming the sun god Amon-Re into a personal god named Aton, a god that creates and sustains life in all the earth.  Re still was part of the dominate belief of the sun for life on earth but now was envisioned as waves of heat portrayed as emanating hands of life.

Ikhnaton and Nofretete Worshiping Aton

Figure 2.  Amenhotep IV (Ikhnaton) and Nofretete worshiping Aton.

It was during the reign of Ramses II, circa 1270 BCE,  that the Priesthood of Amon wrote, Amon as the Sole God.   The ingenuity of the Egyptian Priesthood cannot be overlooked; with this hymn, they were able to establish Amon as the universal and sole god by advancing the belief that he came into being at the beginning, gave birth to Re and completed himself as Atum, a single body with him.  They therefore closed the circle by linking Amon with Atum, the first Egyptian god; more than 1400 years later.

But an observation needs to be made that it was only twenty years later, in 1250 BCE, that Moses walked out of Egypt extolling the one god belief.  He wrote the Book of the Covenant, which preceded the development of the Torah, The Five Books of Moses, that were started in 950 BCE and  finalized around 444 BCE by Erza and Nehemiah.

Both referenced Amen books above present a detailed history of how the Egyptian Priesthood developed the first one-universal god belief and how people from other lands emulated that belief, which led to the formation of the three major religions.  This one-god belief incorporates many of the Egyptian beliefs which were emulated by the Hebrews, Christians and Moslems.  Such as the belief in a soul, a hereafter attained upon leading a righteous life, a Son of God (the Pharaoh), and after the worship of many gods, the apex of belief – one universal God.

Not acknowledged by religious scholars and leaders is that eight of the Ten Commandments, and many others, were already followed by the Egyptians.  But one of the greatest beliefs, the belief in a soul, originated with the first god of Egypt, Atum.   Many people have assimilated this very complex belief as a natural part of their spiritual beliefs.  However, very few people know where and when this powerful belief in a soul evolved.  The Creation by Atum described Atum’s ka as being imbued into his creations.  It is fair to reason that the concept of a soul, called the ka, was expressed by the Egyptian priesthood with their hymn extolling Atum’s creation.

The idea of a ka had emerged before or during the life of King Ka, who existed a few generations before the start of the First Dynasty, which Egyptologist James H. Breasted dates as 3400 BCE.  By the Sixth Dynasty, approximately eight hundred years later, the priesthood had incorporated the belief of the ka, or soul, in The Creation by Atum. The creation hymn reveals that all created things are protected by the ka of Atum.  Let us visit the lines that state that this creator god put his own vital force into his first creatures.

Thou didst put thy arms about them as the arms of a ka, for thy ka was in them.

To be endowed with an internal force or spirit called the ka from the creator god Atum had a spiritual significance. This vital source must be what gave the created object its unique characteristics or its special force.  Scholars of Egyptian history believe that the ka represents the alter ego, a guardian spirit, or the vital force of personality.  Since the god Atum puts his ka into his creations, it identifies their unique characteristics and attributes. That is, the ka provides those attributes that uniquely form the totality of a living or material substance.  In essence, the ka represents the total makeup of glandular, physical, and mental functions that defines humans and their personality.

I diverged from Figure 1 after indicating that it was Moses’ Book of the Covenant that led to the development of the Torah, also referred to as The Five Books of Moses.  It was the Judaic religion that gave birth to the Christian religion and how that evolution occurred has been documented in the two Amen books mentioned above.  It was Jesus Christ, a man of God, who referred to himself 76 times in the four Gospels as the Son of Man.  He announced a revelation in The Revelation of Saint John that Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religious leaders have not acknowledged throughout the centuries, and continue to be silent even today.

In Revelation 3:14, Jesus proclaimed Amen as, “the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.”   It is not my interest to change or debate your beliefs for our minds are made up with many different inputs that form our intellect and views.  I only desire to present what I have learned for your own evaluation.  By comparing your instilled values with new information, you may be able to have a greater appreciation for differences that exist and resolve them with logic.

By reading the referenced Amen books, you can gain information to assess and determine if Jesus has indeed provided a revelation for all of us to examine and evaluate as being true.  Much of what I have written in this article may be new to you and therefore difficult to absorb.  Beliefs that have been ingrained into our lives are very difficult to analyze with logic.  But only with facts and findings from the past can we surface the truth.  I will be honored to answer any questions or comments about the contents and findings of this article. Do not hesitate to provide a comment, pro or con; for by presenting our views we will be able to reach a higher level of truth.  Hopefully, such greater understanding will bring peace of mind to those who have conflicting beliefs that need to be resolved.

Before I leave you with an extract of a paper published by the Chute Institute, I would like you to reflect on the main themes presented in the book trailer for Amen.

http://youtu.be/kAf9HaN8HWA

The paper urges our educational institutions to teach our youth about the beginnings of Mankind’s belief in God and how our major religions evolved.  It is through understanding of the past, and an honest, truthful assessment of facts and findings, that we can proceed in our spiritual development and our quest to learn about God.  To achieve this objective, I have provided below an abstract  of the Chute Institute paper titled, Provide History of Religion and God.   It is available on the Internet via the link below:

ABSTRACT Provide History of Religion and God

There is a need for high school, college, and university educators to introduce their students to a history of mankind’s development of religions and beliefs in God.  Regarded as too sensitive a subject, students are deprived of learning how mankind has evolved ways to establish moral and righteous behavior to maintain harmony among competing groups within a growing community.  Based upon facts and findings surfaced by such respected Egyptologists as James H. Breasted and E.A. Wallis Budge, this author conclusively reveals how the first formal religion of Egypt has been emulated by the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions.  Historical findings provide meaningful evidence of the spiritual nature of man, the emergence of one God Amen, the development of the concepts of truth, a soul, hereafter, Son of God, and a universal God. These findings afford greater insights in the fields of theology, humanities, psychology, and sociology studies. More importantly, a greater understanding of the nature of man can energize religious leaders and the public to effect possible solutions with the assistance of those with perceptive minds and love of humanity.

Will Islam Fuel World War III?

On April 6, 2009, according to President Barack Obama, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.”  He believes, “Islam is a religion that preaches peace.”  For an educated man, Obama has had a poor schooling of the history of Islam.  He appears to be unaware that after the death of Muhammad in 632 CE, in only 29 years, the fifth Muslim leader, Muawiya ruled a Muslim empire that extended over an enormous territory, stretching from India to Spain.

The first caliph had been concerned only with spreading Islam among the Arabs in Saudi Arabia.  Motivated by power and wealth, by 750 CE, the Muslim leaders forced conversion to Islam in all conquered territories by presenting two alternatives: death by the sword or pay a tax.  The Islamic Empire extended from the Byzantine and Persian empires, and continued along the Mediterranean as far west as Spain and all of North Africa, including its east coast down to the island Madagascar, and further east to the northern half of India.

The history of Islam verifies that it is a religion that has grown by taking the wealth of other countries, will not tolerate the existence of other religions, and forced conversion to Islam not through peace and love but by the choice of death or pay a tax to survive.  History and events in our current world reveals that Islam is not a religion of peace.

All Muslims are taught the Qur’an, which is implemented by Sharia law.  The Qur’an has many passages that incite: bigotry against Jews, Christians and other religious groups; hatred for those who worship a god other than Allah; violence and murder of those who slander the prophet Muhammad, and the murder of apostates, homosexuals, or are of another faith.  A brief history of Islam and many passages in the Qur’an that cause Muslims to hate and kill people of other religions is provided in Allah, We Our and Us published by Hancock Press.  It describes how Muslims are taught to believe they have the only true religion and that Islam will prevail over all other religions.  In light of the history of Islam and the abominable passages in the Qur’an, we must question why does Obama publically proclaim Islam is a religion of peace?

The unrealistic belief by Obama that Islam preaches peace may be due to his indoctrination of the Qur’an.  As a young boy in Jakata, Indonesia, he was registered as a Muslim in elementary school and was taught daily to read and write in Arabic, read and recite the Qur’an, and study the laws of Islam.  This early indoctrination has greatly influenced his affinity for Islam and the Muslim people.

Only two weeks after the Benghazi attack in Libya, on September 25, 2012, Obama announced at the UN General Assembly,

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

This threat at an international forum warns all countries that their future is in jeopardy if the prophet of Islam is slandered.  Is Obama truly a Christian when he strongly supports an Islamic prophet knowing hundreds of thousands of Christians have been killed by Islamic extremists?  It would be expected that a Muslim leader would have made such a pronouncement.  It is unconscionable that Obama, a United States President, would issue a threat to all countries on behalf of an Islam prophet.

A lack of Islamic history and Obama’s early indoctrination of the Qur’an may be reason for his arrogance to proclaim Islam is a religion of peace.  Such arrogance may explain why he initiated the Obama-Iran Nuclear Deal, which infuses 150 billion dollars into Iran’s economy and allows them to pursue development of a nuclear bomb.  This deal was negotiated while Iranian leaders and Muslims chanted, “Death to America and Death to Israel!!” Does Obama care about the security of the United States or the growth of Iran and the acceptance of an Islamic ideology by Americans?

According to Obama, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.”   However, WWIII will become a reality by the incessant advance of an Islamic cancer that has already destroyed cities in many countries.  Two of many verses in the Qur’an, clearly show how the minds of Muslims are indoctrinated to kill those who do not follow Islam:

Sura 7:5-7: Little is it that you heed. How many a town have We destroyed! Our punishment came upon their dwellers by night or while they slept at noon.  When Our punishment came upon them all they could utter was: We are indeed wrongdoers.

Sura 7:97-100: We afflicted them suddenly with chastisement, while they perceived not the cause thereof. If the people of those towns had believed and been righteous, We would surely have bestowed blessings upon them from heaven and earth, but they rejected the Prophets, so We seized them because of that which they did.

War will commence after Iran and militant Islamic extremists have grown to such an extent by aggressive force that many free-loving countries will have to defend their people and land by fighting back.  The U.S and its allies will, out of necessity, fight those countries supporting Islamic terror because they will have no alternative.

In addition to the U.S., Israel, Germany, France, Canada, Spain, Australia, Russia, China, United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Norway, Finland, Bulgaria, and even Egypt and Jordan may become part of the coalition force to combat Islamic aggression.  Many countries have already felt the threat and loss of their sovereignty as Muslims migrate into their lands and refuse to integrate and accept their laws and cultural values.  This outcome has been documented in the October 2015 publication of Obama, Islam and Benghazi.

Islam Ideology may cause World War III.

War is the alternative if Islamic religious and political leaders do not acknowledge that it is their ideology taught from The Qur’an and implemented with Sharia law that must be revised.  No scripture should exist that teaches it is the only true religion, the religion of truth, and will prevail over all religions (Qur’an 9:29 and 9:33).

Islam will never be a peaceful nation as it is bound by The Qur’an and Sharia law to spread its ideology to all people.  Americans are ignorant of what the Qur’an actually contains.  It is a manual used by religious leaders to indoctrinate Muslims to commit bigotry, hate, violence, and the killing of innocent people who do not believe in Islam.

People in America and many countries need to learn why Muslims will never assimilate the cultural values of another country.  They need to learn how Islam grew to be a Theocratic Empire by 750 CE through use of the sword and not by love and respect for the beliefs of other people. Only by reading Iran’s history will people understand Islam’s despicable past and its objective for world domination.  Figure 1 illustrates the effect of an ideology that transforms people to advocate Islam will dominate the world.

More Islamic Torerance

An opportunity exists for people to benefit from the knowledge scholars have provided by their objective critique of The Qur’an.  A good recommendation is to read Obama, Islam and Benghazi, which may be read as a free read on the following website:

http://iranpoliticsclub.net/authors/nicholas-ginex/index.htm

Obama, Islam and Benghazi describes why Obama has a strong affinity for Islam and the Muslim people; provides a history why Islam is the source of discontent in many countries; reveals portions of the Qur’an that incite terror and violence; describes how Muslims are indoctrinated by Islamic religious leaders with the belief that We, Our and Us is Allah; presents details of the Benghazi attack, and contains thirty-seven questions that should be addressed by the Select Committee on Benghazi.  Knowledge is a wonderful gift and much of it is presented in this book.

How should the U.S. deal with Iran’s expansionist objective to develop a nuclear weapon and dominate the world?  There is no alternative: either live with an enemy that seeks to destroy the U.S., its ally Israel, and dominate countries around the world or, conquer Iran by war or starve it economically.

The Obama-Iran Nuclear Deal has made it easier for Iran to pursue their development of a nuclear bomb, infuse $150,000 billion dollars into their economy, and support terrorist operations.  Why would the U.S. make such a stupid move?  Actually, it was not the U.S. Congress representing the American people, it was Obama who has an affinity for Iran and the Muslim people, whereby he facilitated the nuclear deal, which was endorsed by the United Nations Security Council (http://www.voanews. com/content/un-security-council-expected-to-approve-iran-nuclear-deal/ 2870048.html).

The American people, due to a liberal or politically corrupted media, has not been informed that Obama has been indoctrinated in the Qur’an as a young boy and it has, in his adult years, affected his reasoning to think objectively for the safety of the United States.  One must never forget the failure of the U.S. media to inform Americans and many countries about the threat announced by Obama at the U.N. General Assembly, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”  Obama stated this Islamic threat two weeks after the Benghazi attack.  Regardless of the context in which he stated this threat, one would expect a Muslim Leader not a U.S. President to make such a statement.

A Realistic and Practical Approach by America.

Iran will pursue a nuclear bomb with or without the Obama-Iran Nuclear Deal.  There is no other recourse for America but to stand up to Iran with a strong position that they STOP all development of a nuclear weapon or allow, anytime and anywhere, 24/7 inspections by American scientists. Failure to do so will mean no ‘snapback sanctions’ or war but a military strike on all known nuclear sites.  To not take this position, the U.S. will gamble the lives of its people, destruction of its land, and world-wide pollution of the earth because Iran will eventually initiate a nuclear bomb first.  He who hesitates is lost.

There is a peaceful solution.

There must be a stop to the destructive cancer infecting free countries around the world with an ideology taught by Islamic religious leaders.  This ideology is driven by the Qur’an and Sharia law, which indoctrinates Muslims with an intolerance of the religious beliefs of others as demonstrated by their objective to dominate the world and publically chant, “Death to America and Death to Israel.”  Islam is a cancerous growth that insidiously affects many countries around the world because Muslims will never integrate with other people and assimilate their cultural values and laws.

The prophetic words of this article should be sufficient to wake people up around the globe.  Figure 2 substantiates the indoctrinated mind-set of Muslims to eliminate the democratic freedoms countries have fought for.  When Muslims are willing to behead people who disagree with their religion it verifies they are unable to use logic to compare, analyze, and scrutinize other religions.  They are unable to assess how their own religion has limited their ability to think and reason constructively.  Chapter 5.2, Indoctrination of the Muslim Mind, presented in Obama, Islam and Benghazi provides an excellent understanding how Muslims become gullible and easily ruled by their Muslim leaders.

muslim mob in London-2006 by img-dailymail-co-uk

Figure 2.  Muslims inciting hate, terror and violence.

The people of Iran and perceptive Islamic religious leaders must initiate a religious revolution of The Qur’an.  However impractical and unrealistic this endeavor is, they need to revise its many verses that infect the Muslim mind with bigotry, hate, violence, and the killing of innocent people who have other religious beliefs.  It is The Qur’an that is the source of discontent in many, many countries.   If Islamic religious leaders are reluctant to revise The Qur’an with God’s greatest command, “love one another” then a revolution by the Muslim people becomes necessary.  Failure to revise The Qur’an with God’s greatest command will initiate an inevitable solution – the U.S realistic and practical approach cited above.

Will Science and Religion Be Compatible ?

INTRO:

The book, God, Us and the Universe by Nicholas Ginex contains a compilation of 51 articles posted on an Internet forum.  The author shared his thoughts with many discerning and intelligent people who exhibited extraordinary depth with their comments.  The interaction between them and the author opened many avenues of thought whereby together they gained perspectives about God, religion, philosophy, politics and ethics.  A portion of this article was extracted to enlighten people that the Scriptures of the Judaic, Christian and Islamic religions need to be revised.

God-Us-and the Universe

Will Science and Religion Be Compatible?

At a very young age, I was not immersed in the biblical Genesis account of the Creation because both my parents had to work for a living while my brother and I were raised by our Sicilian grandparents, who spoke very little English. It was not my parents but my religious Catholic instruction that acquainted me with the belief in God. At that stage of religious development, I had no real appreciation of the Creation account except that Adam was the first man and that Eve was created from Adam’s rib.

Fortunately, I received a public education and in high school enjoyed learning biology and was introduced eventually to the theory of evolution. I admired Darwin’s work and courage to document his research efforts that had, in my mind, much credibility. For even I, at a tender age, realized that man has many of the same organs and functions of dogs, cats, and our closest relatives, monkeys and apes. Funny, I thought, these animals have the same two eyes, ears, nose to breathe, arms, legs, and sexual and breathing apparatus as humans. Wow, we have so much in common. So even then, I found it difficult to believe man was independently created by God but was a more complex and fortunate creature to have had a greater brain, a voice to develop language, and hands to build and eventually write what he had learned in life.

Regarding God, very few people discount the belief in God. Those that do discount God as taught by a religion believe in God from a personal point of view. Even atheists and agnostics, as well as scientists, have no idea how the first atom was created and how billions of atoms came into existence to form matter. It boggles the mind to learn that there are billions of galaxies with billions of stars and billions of planets that make up our universe. Until scientists are able to answer how matter was created that eventually gave birth to living organisms, mankind will always believe in God. I do. The God I believe in has no form; He is incomprehensible, mysterious, and yet responsible for initiating the universe. So I believe in a force that pervades the universe. That force has found its way to conceive life, and all things are made from the same stuff that started the universe.

After receiving my indoctrination in Catholicism, I ventured into many different types of Christian churches and even attended Greek Orthodox and Jewish houses of worship. I was always impressed listening to the radio, with the talks given by rabbis, in fact, more so than sermons given by priests. So I had an open mind seeking to understand who was God. All my life I was interested in philosophy, sociology, and the humanities because I loved learning about the accomplishments of mankind and some of their greatest thoughts that I might embrace.

Well, into my forties, I read books by many religious scholars and became engrossed in learning more about what Egyptologists had to say about the past history of an almost forgotten civilization. Egyptologists such as Henry H. Breasted and E. A. Wallis Budge brought to life great works of beauty revealed within Egyptian temples, pyramids, and monuments. More importantly, upon reading their deciphered hieroglyphics, I learned how man first conceived one universal God; that God existed for over two thousand years before the birth of Jesus Christ. Having acquired quite a bit of knowledge from men who dedicated their lives to unearth and reveal history of a very spiritual people, I unintentionally started to write, upon my retirement as an engineer, to produce Legacy of a Father for my children.

This was the first book I ever wrote and I say unintentionally because I never planned to write a book. Sitting at my computer, the book unfolded itself into a logical sequence of who were the Egyptian people, their history and beliefs, and how their beliefs were imitated by the Hebrews who developed their religion based upon the beliefs in a soul, a hereafter, a morality based on truth and righteousness, and a belief in one universal God. Upon writing about the beliefs of the Egyptian people, I naturally was obligated to read the Torah, the Gospels and Revelation, and the Koran. This education allowed me to provide an objective critique of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic scriptures. Of greater worthiness, I was able to reflect on what I wrote and provide recommendations to the religious leaders and followers of these faiths, which would be helpful in bringing their beliefs into a more unified version.

I have said enough about why I believe the idea of God will always prevail as long as science has not learned where the first atom came from. Those who desire to pursue how man first conceived God and how that God has profoundly influenced the development of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions are encouraged to do an Internet search on the title Future of God Amen. As a man of optimism and love for the human race, I do believe that there are many men and women in this world who are intelligent enough to recognize that changes must be made in our religious beliefs about God.

It is easy to rant and rave why people should or should not believe in God and that it has been religious people who have caused the deaths of millions upon millions of innocent people. But there is a solution whereby science and religion can advance in parallel in our quest to know God by revealing the truth of our past. I recommend people read Future of God Amen to understand that the truth of the past can complement our scientific advancements. Perhaps this book will motivate daughters and sons of God to emerge and assist religious leaders to undertake a revision of their holy scriptures so that all people will not only accept each other’s religion, but also learn to love one another.

After much research and writing about God and the development of the major religions, it became clear that Scripture was inspired by men of God.  They put in writing the commands that would help their people to live in harmony under a given set of rules of conduct.  Such rules of conduct were developed by the first formal religion of the world that existed in Egypt.  Long before Abraham and Moses, the Priesthood of Amon developed the belief in one-universal God, the Creator of all there is.  It was this belief that cemented rules of conduct that, if followed, would allow the righteous to join their God upon death.

During many hundreds of years, the Egyptian priesthood revised their beliefs many times.  They eventually replaced their beliefs in many gods with one-universal God.  That God is announced by name today by many people – Amen.  The Priesthood of Amon wrote, Amon as the Sole God.  It was composed during the reign of Ramses II after accepting many of the ideas first composed by Amenhotep IV (reigned 1375-1358) who wrote, The Hymn to the Aton.  Both hymns are provided in the book Future of God Amen.

Through many centuries, the major religions have fought to establish their God as the true God. We see today, extremist Muslims killing Jews, Christians, Buddhists and people of other faiths because their Scripture, The Qur’an, states they have the true religion (Sura 9:29), it is the Religion of Truth, and that Allah will make it prevail over all other religions (Sura 9:33).  Hence, on the world stage we have a “bully religion” whereby Islamic leaders indoctrinate their followers to eliminate the religious beliefs of other people and kill them to achieve their objective.

To stop the insanity of killing people in the name of God, the Muslim people themselves must pressure their religious leaders to wake up and revise the Qur’an to reflect the greatest command given by a Man of God – love one another. If the Egyptian priesthood were intelligent enough to update their Scriptures many times until they arrived at the belief in one universal God, so can Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religious leaders. It is foolish to believe that Scripture is encased in concrete never to be changed. Will religious leaders of these faiths be perceptive, compassionate, and wise to revise their Scriptures with the objective to teach all people to love one another?

A cooperative response to this challenge by religious leaders and their followers will steer mankind into the realm of knowledge where science and faith are compatible in man’s quest to know God.  Such an effort is based upon truth of the evolution of God and religion that is obtainable from our past history.

The following assessment of the author was given by Dr. Ahreeman, a college professor.

“Nicholas Ginex is a valuable author, scholar and philosopher. His writings are enlightening and informing to the open minds. His views are about universal love and peace for the mankind and all creatures throughout the universe. Reading Ginex books are essential for the philosophy, history and science buffs and enthusiasts.

Ginex is an explorer in time and space, travelling with the warp speed throughout the universe, seeking for the truth of the universe. Can you catch up with Ginex?  The only way you can, is if you have an open mind!”

Religions Must Change to be Relevant for Humanity

INTRO:  Before introducing you to a pragmatic change that deals with God, religion and morality, we should examine what are the ingredients of thought that fall into the category characterized as philosophy?

To present a meaningful philosophic view, the philosopher should be able to relate his ideas to facts and experiences that logically lead to perceptive conclusions.  However, an important part of philosophizing is the human element of love or empathy for humanity.  To not include an answer or views that better our lives becomes an exercise without a purpose.

It is hoped that the following article will stimulate your thinking about God, religion and morality.  The background of a constructive article on these subjects is a deep love for people.  A love that is similar to the love of a mother and father in forming a sound foundation in their children to be able to cope with the many challenges of the future but also to develop a frame of mind able to comprehend how their lives can be more meaningful and satisfying.

I recently opened a book with just a sense of revisiting what I wrote.  The book title is Allah, We, Our and Us.  It was written to inform people about the religion of Islam, what is in the Qur’an,  and unveil lies taught unsuspecting minds by Islamic religious leaders. An article featured on this post, Allah is Represented by a Party of Men, provides conclusive evidence that the Qur’an was written by religious leaders to command their followers.  It unveils the lie that it is Allah as ‘We, Our and Us’ that commands armies of men to kill innocent people.  The truth is that We, Our and Us is a party of fanatical religious men who speak for Allah. Their objective is to create an Islamic Theocratic Empire under the control of one world religion – Islam.

Religions Must Change to be Relevant for Humanity

The commentary and conclusions presented in Allah, We. Our and Us would not be complete without providing some perceptive thoughts about the Islamic religion from an outstanding author of religions and history, D.M. Murdock/Acharaya S. She has written numerous books and articles and voiced her insights on many talk shows.  Unfortunately she passed away last year.  Below are her concluding paragraphs extracted from her article, The Origins of Islam.[1]

“If this planet’s inhabitants would simply become educated to the origins of their traditions in full, we could live in a world of tremendous beauty and knowledge, as opposed to ugly, superstitious and repressive ideologies that are exclusionary and bigoted. Islam arose because of the repression of Christianity and Judaism, as well as an unbalanced female-oriented culture. Like those traditions, Islam is utterly out of balance, and we may all suffer for it, particularly if the predictions come true that Islam will be the most dominant religion in the world in the next decades.

As previously stated, there are few non-Muslim women or men who would wish to live in such a world. Because of this aversion, we would expect to see in the future innumerable ghastly battles and wars waged in the name of one god or another, as has happened far too often in the past, especially with these monotheistic Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All told, these three are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of people, so why are they deemed “Great religions?” The “greatest” thing about them is their death toll.

If this world is to survive into the coming age, we will need as many people as possible to drop all of these divisive doctrines. What we need on this planet, right now, are honest, caring and whole human beings who are motivated not by potential favors and rewards from sadistic and ethnocentric deities in the sky but by innate decency and integrity. Only in this way can we all live in peace rather than fear, which is the weapon wielded by religion to convert the faithful.”

The concluding thoughts by Acharaya surfaces the question, should the monotheistic religion institutions be preserved within a civilized society or are they all by nature myths that propound dogma that causes discontent, division, and hate with the eventual action of violence and death of many innocent people? It is clear that although the Judaic and Christian religions have a history of wars and the killing of millions of lives, it appears they have extinguished the desire to increase their membership through coercion and by forceful expansion of their faith.

In contrast with the Judaic and Christian faiths of today, Islamic religious and political ruling leaders continue to apply a theocratic government of control with the objective to unify people of all countries under one common reality defined as the ummah. The Islamic scholar Seyyed Hossein Nasr has defined the ummah as “the totality of different ethnic and cultural groups of people who are Muslims that constitute the Islamic world. The ummah may be characterized as a single religious community bound by a sense of brotherhood so emphasized by the Qur’an and the Prophet.”[2]

The leaders in free democratic countries have become vigilant of the insidious indoctrination by Islamic religious leaders and forceful expansion of Islam by Muslim extremists.  In Allah, We, Our and Us a list of atrocities of men, women and children killed by extremist Muslims are listed in Appendix 1.  It is conclusive proof that it is the Qur’an, Sharia law, and the Sunnah that work together to cause discontent by protesters in many countries experiencing Islamic expansion. There is no doubt that Islamic religious leaders use the Qur’an as an instrument to indoctrinate the minds of people to commit murder and suicide to further the ummah objective using Allah as the authoritative source.

The Injustice of Sharia Law

The solution is clear. The Qur’an must be revised to eliminate the abominations it advocates.  Allah, We, Our and Us provides recommendations to assist religious leaders of the monotheistic religions to work together. It can do no more than to define the problem and propose a solution, which is short of advocating forceful overthrow of the religious institution by the millions of followers.

Having reviewed the state of discontent predominantly induced by Muslim extremists, let us return to the question; are religions necessary for any civilization in light of the discontent they create around the world? To answer this question it becomes necessary to examine why religions have become a vital institution throughout the world since mankind started living together in communities.

Is it practical to do away with our religious institutions? They do serve a purpose to provide moral instruction to growing minds and reinforce the ideals of truth, justice, and righteousness. But aren’t these attributes the ones originally taught by the Egyptian priesthood? Was not Egypt the greatest civilization that left a legacy of not only the belief in one universal God and left extraordinary monuments, pyramids, and temples that have been emulated by the Greeks and Romans? The Egyptian religion served to make Egypt one of the greatest empires of the past. However, the Egyptian religion was corrupted and changed by other groups of people who wanted their own god to be supreme. The arrogance of leaders to gain power by the application of the tenets of a man-made god has worked in the past but it is with a painful truth that they have used the belief in God to further their ambitions to expand their power, wealth and control over people of other countries.

So why continue with the belief that society needs religious institutions to promote morality, decency, respect, and cooperation among their people? The religious institutions are, in a way, surrogate parents who guide those who are not blessed with parents that are capable of being fine role models that teach the Word of God. Unfortunately, many parents and unwed couples are stressed with the hardships of making a living or unable to raise a child with the morals and integrity needed for society to function and prosper as an integrated unit. This void can be fulfilled by a religious institution that has representatives of God groomed to guide others with the teaching of morality and love for others.

The other benefit of having a religious institution within a society is that it provides a uniform code of conduct that cannot be provided by the scientific method or by educational institutions that develop their own perceptions with a multiple of different approaches. The code of conduct to achieve honesty and integrity with the concern for compassion and assistance of others has been developed through the thousands of years of interaction between people who have devised rules for a peaceful society. Leaders within a society have realized that rules of conduct were essential for the viable function of its citizens and state. Hence, the spirit of mankind, which is the inherent desire to love and be loved, has evolved the conception of a God that has created all there is.  It is this God they desire to please by following His commands of morality and someday share His eternal presence.  This novel idea is the capstone of many religions; the possibility of joining their god after death for an eternity of love, peace and happiness.

Today, people have become more educated and are able to discern what is best for them. However, after thousands of years that righteous men evolved codes of conduct, it would be foolish to do away with religious instruction that reinforces the attributes of truth, integrity, love and compassion for others. These attributes were not found by the application of the scientific method but by experience of hard knocks in the real world.

Although there are many intellectuals who believe they can conduct their lives without having a moral code instilled in young minds to lay the foundations of morality that guides reason and logic, they must not forget that the mind is conditioned just as an athlete’s body is conditioned to perform well. If people were to devise their own code of conduct with their various preferences and individuality the result will be a quixotic world with a mix of values that will cause more confusion and discontent.

Therefore, in answer to the above question, it is this author’s contention that religion does serve a purpose within a society. However, that religion must be led by men of God who are perceptive to realize that their long held dogma of beliefs must be revised. Changes are needed to benefit their followers by employing one sole command from a man of God that stated it three times – love one another. This command has many implications and is at the root of all relationships to promote one’s happiness with others. It requires sincerity, truthfulness, compassion, and love to be a prime motivator for one’s decisions throughout life whereby relationships become more solid, meaningful, and wholesome.

Can religious leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions work out a way to unify the belief in one universal God? It may appear to be an insane idea to believe these representatives of God can work together. Yet, this is the only logical solution for as religious leaders it is their mandate to teach the Word of God. They may continue to do nothing, which will result in the eventual collapse of their religion, destruction of human life, and possibly our planet. The alternative is to work together to dispense with religious dogma made up of myths and revise the Scriptures that will further the spiritual nature of mankind.

Another reason it is not practical to do away with our religious institutions is that human beings do have a spiritual nature. They will always reflect and think about how did our star, our galaxy, the millions of galaxies and their billions of stars come to exist? They will always think of an unknown entity or force they conceptualize as God being responsible for their existence and all that has been created in the universe.

Was it energy or was it matter that first formed the first atom, the building block of all organic and inorganic matter? No scientist knows; even though they love to start with the “Big Bang,” a concept that they have concocted without knowing how the first atom was formed. They may determine someday that there is a force, a consciousness that pervades our universe. If so, human beings are thinking organisms that stimulate a consciousness energized by the building blocks of atoms that formed all things. It may be this inherent consciousness of humans that tries to reach out and understand the cosmos from whence it originated.

In Sigmund Freud’s book, The Future of an Illusion, he states that a psychologist does not deceive himself about the difficulty of finding one’s bearings in this world but makes an endeavor to assess the development of man, in light of the small portion of knowledge he has gained through a study of the mental processes of individuals during their development from child to adult. In so doing, the idea forces itself upon him that religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis, and he is optimistic enough to suppose that mankind will surmount this neurotic phase, just as so many children grow out of their similar neurosis.[3]

Freud goes on to state that the primacy of the intellect is in the distant future, but probably not in an infinitely distant one. A future whereby the same aims one expects from beliefs in God are achieved, namely, the love of man and the decrease of suffering. He then criticizes religion for advocating a state of bliss begins directly after death and writes his God promises no compensation for us, who suffer grievously from life. Freud foresees that on the way to that distant goal of eternal bliss, religious doctrines will have to be discarded, no matter whether the first attempts fail, or whether the first substitutes prove to be untenable. His conclusion is that in the long run nothing can withstand reason and experience, and the contradiction which religion offers to both is all too palpable.

The logic Freud provides has its merits but he fails to acknowledge the thousands of years of experience acquired by mankind to develop rules of conduct. True, those rules of conduct have been embodied in the framework of religious dogma, such as the thirty-seven protestations of guiltlessness the ka of a dead Egyptian professes before Osiris and the forty-two protestations he appeals before the posthumous court of judges to convince them he is worthy of eternal happiness.[4] The moral code of conduct was followed by the Egyptians over two thousand years before they were engraved on the temple walls of the Eighteenth Dynasty, 1580-1350 BCE. Much of it has been tailored by Moses to become part of the commandments he set down in stone and wrote in his Book of the Covenant.[5] Experience by mankind to formulate a moral code of morality, truth and righteousness provides the tested ways a society may function in harmony as its citizens have the same expectations of right and wrong.

The next phase of spiritual development of mankind is to pressure and force religious leaders to forego the myths and dogma that utilized the concepts of fear (hell) and reward (heaven) and replace them with the Word of God – love one another. This new approach must embrace knowledge acquired by the sciences and logical, ethical thinking, based upon reason and compassion that improves the lives of our sisters and brothers around the world.

The spiritual nature of man will always exist because of a consciousness that pervades the universe and has manifested its essence in the intellect of human beings. It has allowed us to think of the greatest inventions and innovations unknown to man only a few hundred years ago. It was the creative ability of the mind by our greatest inventors that has built a reality we enjoy today. Who ever thought we could talk to each other miles apart and yet see each other’s face? We enjoy television and the computer as a natural way to receive news, entertainment, and are many times more productive.  See my Homepage post, Does Consciousness Pervade the Universe?

Yes, science has been a way to improve our reality but the spiritual nature of mankind will forever endure as it is our minds that help us to create our world. Therefore, God, that unknown force will continue to be a part of the thinking mind. However, let us use our minds to make that God proud of his creations by living decent, trustful and loving lives.   Perhaps, someday, we may live long enough to travel to other parts of our galaxy and find there are other creatures of God that may enhance our knowledge. Let us dispel fear of the unknown and be optimistic that we may be able to enjoy the community of life in the universe.

Needed Changes to the Holy Scriptures

INTRO:  Take your time reading the following article.  Please comment if you agree or not with the recommendation that Scriptures need to be revised.  The minds of religious leaders are constrained within the cage of worn out dogma, which restricts their ability to revise their Scriptures.  However, if the Priesthoods of Ancient Egypt were astute enough to revise their beliefs from many gods to one universal God many times, there is hope our religious leaders realize improvements are needed in our world today.   Many men and women gifted with perceptive, intelligent minds, and loving hearts will surely assist their efforts.

Needed Changes to the Holy Scriptures

The god many believe in today has been revealed through man’s spirit, imagination, and love for the god he created in his own image. The philosophical questions of who created the universe, the first atom, and the enormous amount of matter, galaxies, and stars lead one’s mind to ponder the wonder of it all. The world has become much larger than it was to the minds of men four thousand years ago. Today, many realize that there may be other intelligent life in the billions of galaxies in the universe. This leads one not only to revere life on this planet but also to eventually love and respect alien life that may come to visit us in the future. Our future depends, first, on how much sisters and brothers, throughout our world, love one another.

The evolution of our monotheistic God took thousands of years and, in the process, underwent many changes. This should come as no surprise, for each generation has developed concepts that were embraced and improved upon. This has been true in the scientific and technical spheres, whereby scientists have developed ways to communicate at the speed of light. Change also occurs within religions.  In the past, Egyptian priests revised and updated their beliefs to keep pace with the advances in their culture and intellect of their people. Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religious must embrace change to improve the relationships between people of different lands.

Many passages in scriptures are out of date and many that once served to unite a unique people are no longer applicable. One need only to turn to the Torah to see outdated passages dealing with ancient animal sacrifices, specific details for the garments of the priest, and detailed measurements on how to build a place of worship, an altar, and its accessories (refer to Exodus 23, 25-31).  The book Allah, We, Our and Us, is replete with abominable passages that incite hatred, bigotry, violence, and the killing of innocent people not willing to worship the Islamic God Allah.

Change is essential if religious institutions are to keep pace with worshippers as they acquire more education and the ability to examine their religious beliefs and seek meaning in their lives. If religious leaders continue to cling to worn, outdated passages of their holy scriptures, they will only become an embarrassment to discerning and intelligent people. By not acknowledging the need for change, they will find their religious myths ridiculed and their institutions laughed at because much of their dogma no longer provide moral and spiritual guidance.

Can our religious institutions, be they of Jewish, Christian, or Islamic origins, afford an outcome that is a disbelief in God? This outcome is sure to develop in the future as they continue to believe they have the only true religion and true God. There are many brilliant minds that would gladly assist in the reformation of their religious institutions and holy scriptures. But will those entrusted with the responsibility of religious leadership be courageous and perceptive enough to accept assistance and improve their doctrines? Or are they so indoctrinated that they cannot search their hearts and minds to find the truths and words of love that can truly guide their worshippers?

As a man who has learned to love all people, the sisters and brothers of this world, there is hope for change. Human beings are born with the gift to love; it is the one gift that ensures their survival. The recommendations presented in Allah, We, Our and Us for religious leaders and worshippers from all nations. They are provided as a starting point for many more necessary changes. Surely, there are men and women who have the talent and gifts to implement the recommendations offered and commend many more to improve the morality and spiritual nature of mankind.

In the final chapter of Allah, We, Our and Us, this author appeals to the followers and leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions to work together to unify their beliefs in God.  This novel informs people all over the world that so far, unintentionally and by forceful aggression, these very religions have caused bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people. To assist in ameliorating this path of destruction, it reveals the abominations of these three religions. However, it is not the author’s intent to cast blame on any one religion but to wake up the religious leaders to understand that the very existence of human life and our planet is headed for a disastrous outcome unless they work together to unify their beliefs and teach the Word of God.

In Future of God Amen, the last thought was a question. Who will dedicate their lives to becoming the daughters and sons of God? A proactive solution is to not wait for several outstanding individuals with loving hearts and perceptive minds; it will be us, the millions of people around the world, who must stand up to the religious leaders and demand they all teach the Word of God—love one another. Nothing will happen by continuing to rely on the bureaucracy and entrenched institutions that follow worn-out dogma. Their Holy Scriptures must be revised. We are all children of God, and we are responsible to guide our own destiny for a belief system that is capable of change. Change is possible by being involved to improve the character and integrity of all people, which can be accomplished with a unified belief in God that is truly guided by the Word of God.

 

 

 

 

 

Provide History of Religion and God

INTRODUCTION

There is lacking in our educational system across the United States a curriculum that teaches and emphasizes the attributes of integrity based upon honesty and truth.  Where and when did such attributes of truth, justice, and righteousness evolve?  Was it revealed to mankind as revelations from God or developed by the experiences of different communities interacting with one another to establish harmony between their people?  Our educators can provide answers to their students based upon an ancient civilization that created awe inspiring temples, pyramids and monuments due to their beliefs that embodied the attributes of truth, righteousness, and justice.

Below is an Internet link that presents a paper written for The Clute Institute to motivate educators to examine the book Future of God Amen for use in their classrooms.

The paper titled, “Provide History of Religion and God.” was noticed by ERIC (Education Resource and Information Center) and placed on the Internet.  ERIC is sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education.

It offers a wealth of historical information of the development of Egypt’s civilization and religious beliefs.  The author reveals how their beliefs were emulated by other groups of people to develop the major religions of today; namely, the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions.  In addition, a comprehensive critique of the Torah, Gospels, and the Qur’an is given to demonstrate the connectivity of these scriptures to Egyptian hymns and religious beliefs.  Finally, the author takes the reader further to study recommendations and solutions of the differences in religious beliefs that have created bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people.
