    Monotheistic religions: What do they Mean?

    Monotheism: Literally, 'mono' refers to 'one' in Latin and theism: from 'theus' referring to 'god. deity', or 'divinity', in Greek. So monotheism denotes one god. Reference of monotheistic religions refers the three major religions in the world of monotheistic doctrines, namely Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

    The donkey on two legs who considers these religions with reference to multiple-systems of angels, satans, jinns, and other creatures in terms of trinities comprehends nothing about the monotheistic principle in these three major religions of today, and the past.

    A religion, to be monotheist, has one principle thing, one object, one being, as a purpose of acknowledgement, worship, belief, devotion, love, fear and to be served, namely God. God is the object of identification in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

    These religions are called monolithic religions because their fiddles of believers, believe in one and only God. While Judaism is totally based on belief in one, indivisible eternal God that is the creator of the universe, heavens and earth and what is between, life and death, all manifestations of life including man.

    Man is sent the Law in order to implement it and those who do follow the Law, or the Torah, are saved and earn the favor of God who will reward them in this world and in the hereafter. Those who reject the Law of God shall be subject to punishment in this world and in the Hereafter shall be chastised in Gahanna or Hell Fire.

    The Gospel or the Evangel represents the divine word for Christians and proclaims one God in trinity. That is to say God the father, God the son and the Holy Spirit (archangel Gabriel).

    Christianity can be considered as a monotheistic religion in as far as it is concerned with the worship and serving as well as love on and only God, despite that this God has three dimensions, or three sides reflecting the unity of God in trinity. Christianity like Judaism proclaims those who believe in God shall be rewarded in Paradise and those who chose not to believe in God shall be thrown in Gahanna. This monotheistic religion addresses all humanity.

    Islam is considered by 1.4 billions of fiddles as a divine message of God to all humans. It proclaims one God and the only God, creator of the Universe and everything within it. It proclaims, worship of this God alone and not to associate anything in His worship. God of the Muslims is eternal, all creating.

    He has created all manifestations of life. He has created humans in order to worship Him. He has given them the choice and freedom to believe or disbelieve in Him. The universe is made as the criterion of considering the necessity of God to create, put together, hold together and dispose of everything at a simple command of an divine act.

    Humans have the task to choose between belief and disbelief in God, to worship Him or not, to obey His law or not. Humans are given one life to undergo this experience. Then an appointed day for the judgment of humans shall be established where all humans shall be resurrected, and every soul shall be held to account for its actions and beliefs.

    Those who believe and perform good deeds in their earthly life shall be rewarded with eternal felicity in paradise. Those who chose not to believe as the disbelievers, atheists, agnostics, hypocrites, associators, idolaters, shall be summoned to be judged according to their free choice and bad actions and shall be punished in hell fire.

    The reason for punishment is that humans have received the message of good news and have rejected it and denied its plausibility.

    The three monotheistic religions are founded on the promise of God and nothing else. No one proof is provided by any of these religions for the existence of God. No proof is offered in these three texts to an evidence for the day of Judgment nor for paradise nor for Hell Fire. All three religions proclaim the same thing, namely to believe in one God and do good and shun evil.

    Reward and punishment shall be administered by God in this world as well as in the hereafter.

    The principle thesis of all these three religions is God is and man ought to worship God and serve Him.

    The cornerstone of monotheism is the oneness of God in contrast to polytheism found in other belief-systems and other spiritual outlooks.

    juglelow It is not the belief of All Christians that atheists and agnostics will be punish in a fire. No body knows what Hell(or heaven) is like , the bible version is not to be taken literal.
    Also there is debate of who goes to hell. All can do good deeds. Many Christians , Jews and Moslems do not think many go to hell or it is certain that they are saved.

    The firey hell thing is more Dante than gospel. Isn't it bad enough that you would exist in a world without love ?

    The promise of God and heaven if one abases himself enough.

    Except for Christianity that also says we have to embrace substitutionary atonement which is an immoral tenet.

    Christians, IOW, have to sell their moral soul to Satan in the hope that Jesus will accept them even as they would profit from allowing an innocent man to be punished in their stead.

    As Ingersoll said; 'no man would be fit for heaven who would consent that an innocent person should suffer for his sin.'

    So much for Christian morality.
