This piece is my response to the divisiveness caused and harm done to humanity by the theological interpretations of the organized religions of the world, their various sects and cults. The message of the prophets and truth bringers that have walked amongst human kind since the emergence of man have essentially, at their core, all been the message. Why then are we fighting with one another?
The Egyptians:“ to seek for others the good one desires for oneself.”
The Greek: “Do not that to a neighbor which you would take ill from him.”
The Roman: “The law imprinted on the hearts of all men, is to love the members of society as themselves.”
Buddha: “One should seek for others the happiness one desires for himself.”
Confucius: “What you would not wish done to yourself, do not unto others.”
Mohammad: “Let no one of you treat his brother in a way he himself would dislike being treated.”
Zoroaster: “ Do as you would be done by.”
Lao Tzu: “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself.”
Abraham: “Whatsoever ye do not wish your neighbor to do to you, do not unto him. This is the only law; the rest is the expression of it.”
Lastly, Jesus of Nazareth: “All things whatsoever ye would that men would do to you, do ye even so to them.
