The concept of God has always held conflicting messages. The purpose of this book is to unravel the misconceptions and mixed messages about God in monotheistic religions throughout history. More people have been killed in the name of God than for any other reason. Reflection upon man’s manipulation of the concept of God under the guise of religion may serve the reader in his human journey. God is always silent. People are always talkative. God has so many religions. People are convinced that their religion is the right one in our spacious universe. God is a commodity in the markets of humanity while he/she keeps his/her distance. God is being manipulated by many and the eternal silence of the divine abuse continues forever. The monotheists often forget that they are in the demographic minorities of the planet. Most people in this world do not accept the idea of one god; therefore, new reflections of the monotheists concerning their negative utilization of the right God in their unique perspectives are due to be revealed to those who care about the divine defensive mode.
