The book, Allah, We, Our and Us, poses several challenges to religious leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic faiths. The author has laid bare facts revealed in the scriptures of these religions so that people around the world become aware that beliefs are indeed created by men to achieve harmony within their community by specifying a set of moral codes. To objectively assess the beliefs of these religions, it was necessary for the author to read the Torah, Gospels and Revelation, and the Qur'an. But such a study was not undertaken until the author became fully cognizant of the history of the first formal religion, which was developed and formalized by the Egyptian priesthood.
The study of Egypt's religion surfaced facts well documented in stone by beginning as far back as 3500 BCE. The author assembled those facts in his published book titled Future of God Amen in 2009. In a methodical fashion, he revealed that it was the Egyptian priesthood that first developed the concept of a soul, a hereafter where the soul joins its god for eternity, a belief that the pharaoh is the Son of God, and after the worship of many gods, they finally conceived the belief in one universal God. By 1270 BCE this universal God, Amon, was worshipped as the sole God for all countries. However, due to their limited view of the world, this universal God was only introduced to the countries of Syria, Palestine, Nubia, and Egypt.
After the author's first published book became available on the internet and national book stores, he entered in public debate and commentary on such religious forums as www.gather.com and www.theologyweb.com. The interest by religious followers of the Christian and Judaic religions, as well as atheists and agnostics, resulted in an exchange of ideas and points of view that proved to be fruitful in gaining greater insights regarding the belief and existence of God.
The above introduction serves as Part 1 to the subject of this article. It was given to give the reader some idea of the diligence and commitment of the author to provide knowledge he has attained in his lifetime. A lifetime of reading religious scholars and respectable Egyptologists enabled him to publish five books after his 71st birthday. Those of you who would like to gain an overview of his books, and have a greater interest in learning where and how god was first conceived by man, are invited to visit www.futureofgodamen.com.
The latest book written by the author, Allah, We, Our and Us, challenges the religious leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions to unify their beliefs and teach God's last command presented in John's Gospel. It was announced three times by a Man of God -- love one another. Is it possible for religious leaders of these faiths to unify their beliefs by acknowledging that Amen, announced at the end of a prayer, a supplication to God, giving thanks for an outcome, or sung with reverence, is the first universal God? Three other questions are offered for contemplation:
Did Egypt develop the first formal religion documented by the Egyptian Priesthood?
Is God's greatest and last command love one another?
Is Amen, the first universal God, Maker of all mankind, Creator and Maker of all that is?
