"It is common to end a discourse on spiritual matters, (or end a prayer) with (the word) "Amen". Few of us realize that the word 'Amen' is an Egyptian word. It refers to the Egyptian god of Thebes. The Hebrews adopted the word and it passed into Christian use as "Amen". It is a petition for (the god - Amen) to fulfill our words. " - MYSTIC GIFTS FROM ANCIENT EGYPT By Dr John Palo ; 1999 "Yet another hint of an Egyptian influence in Christianity is the fact that even today, we still end prayers with the word "Amen". Amen-Ra was the chief god of the Egyptians. The Church's main tool for the conversion of the "pagans"

was always the appropriation of the local religion's most holy days and rituals. This allowed the locals to feel they were still worshipping the old Gods in the accustomed ways," - The Swindle of Truth Ancient Egypt : Per Ankh "Finally, we may note that the word "Amen" occurs in gnostic spells..... especially of Egyptian origin, and a sort of magical efficacy seems to have been attributed to this word.. The practice of answering "Amen" at the end of prayers appears in the Canons of Hippolytus (No. 146) and in the Egyptian Church Order (p. 101)." - New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia Thurston, Herbert. "Amen." The Catholic Encyclopedia. Vol. 1. New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1907. "The Israelite exiles from Egypt knew that Jehovah was not the same as the Egyptian god Aten, and so they presumed he must be the equivalent of the great State God of Egypt. It was decided, therefore, to add the name of that State-god of Egypt to all prayers thereafter, and the name of that Egyptian god was "Amen". To this day, the name of Amen is still recited at the end of prayers in both Jewish and Christian religions." - Genesis of the Grail Kings by Sir Laurence Gardner; pg. 6

"Isn't it strange that "Amen was an ancient Egyptian god that was supposed to be very powerful, so much so that every prayer began and ended with his name." -Praying To Egyptian God, Amen, By Subterfuge "AMEN: In Egyptian Mythology, the mighty one (god) of life and procreation ...later identified with the Sun-god as the supreme deity of Egypt, and was called "Amen-Ra." -Funk & Wagnalls Standard College Dictionary "The Egyptian Ruler Akhenaton had the people worship in the temples of Amen Ra, meaning God's Sun/Son. At the end of the services they would say "Amen", because they were sending a prayer to the gods through Amen-Ra, God's Sun/Son. Amen-Ra, served as a personal savior to them, since it (SUN) gave them

all life." -Awaken to the Truth Coptic Prayers St. Basil Liturgy "AMEN: An Egyptian divinity He was worshipped as Amen-Ra or Amen the Sun." -Smith's Bible Dictionary "No other "god" of the Egyptians has left so indelible a stamp upon the world - as this First Father of the Egyptian gods, known as Ammon, Amon and "Amen" which means "THE ONE HIDDEN WITHIN," Amen's spell is so mighty that over twenty centuries after his last Sanctuary was abandoned to the desert sands, every Judeo-Christian prayer that is uttered - still whispers his name in closing. " - The Egyptian Mystical Rites by Jerry Clifford Welch "When we did it in ignorance, maybe God looked past that. But now that you know the truth, what will you do? Will you continue to use the name of a pagan god to close your prayers? Is it too hard to change that now? Because youve been using the amen tradition for a long time - will you rationalize and justify why you keep on invoking the name of the Egyptian god, Amen? Will you find a pastor or teacher to reassure you that its okay to say amen - Or will you give thanks to God for revealing His truth and stop using the name of a pagan god?" -And they all Said, "AMEN" by J.D. Roberts

"Again we can see how the pagans have been made welcome, been conciliated, by adopting the name of a pagan deity into the prayers of the Church [of Rome]. This deity became known as 'Amen-Ra', but he was only known as 'Amen' among the Thebians." -The Final Reformation by Chris Koster "By ending our prayers in 'amen'... one could very well ask, "Have we been misled to invoke the name of the Egyptian 'Sun-god' at the end of our prayers"? " -United Hebrew Congregation Charles J. Voss
