Who Is Allah?

There are 253444 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

rabbee: nah! since it all boils down, to being truth challenged here in TheStory of Creation actually happening again.

one must be carefull about not being, true to G-D here in TheStory of Creation. least it results, in idolitry of all other kinds of things falsly.

if you, only treat the symptions of idolitry individually. all you, do. is exchange, one idolitry for another.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-3
Chapter 3 Wonderful birth of Jesus, and appearance of angels praising God.

There reigned at that time in Judaea Herod, by decree of Caesar Augustus, and Pilate was governor in the priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas. Wherefore, by decree of Augustus, all the world was enrolled; wherefore each one went to his own country,... Joseph having arrived at Bethlehem, for that the city was small, and great the multitude of them that were strangers there, he found no place, wherefore he took lodging outside the city in a lodging made for a shepherds' shelter. While Joseph abode there the days were fulfilled for Mary to bring forth.

The virgin was surrounded by a light exceeding bright, and brought forth her son without pain, whom she took in her arms, and wrapping him in swaddling-clothes, laid him in the manger, because there was no room in the inn. There came with gladness a great multitude of angels to the inn, blessing God and announcing peace to them that fear God. Mary and Joseph praised the Lord for the birth of Jesus, and with greatest joy nurtured him.

Note: This is in line with Luke and Matthew (MUQ)

Chapter 4 Angels announced to the shepherds the birth of Jesus,

At that time the shepherds were watching over their flock, as is their custom. And, behold, they were surrounded by an exceeding bright light, out of which appeared to them an angel, who blessed God. The shepherds were filled with fear by reason of the sudden light and the appearance of the angel; whereupon the angel of the Lord comforted them, saying:

'Behold, I announce to you a great joy, for there is born in the city of David a child who is a prophet of the Lord; who bringeth great salvation to the house of Israel. The child ye shall find in the manger, with his mother, who blesseth God.'

And when he had said this there came a great multitude of angels blessing God, announcing peace to them that have good will. When the angels were departed, the shepherds spake among themselves, saying:'Let us go even unto Bethlehem, and see the word which God by his angel hath announced to us.' There came many shepherds to Bethlehem seeking the new-born babe. and they found outside the city the child that was born. According to the word of the angel. lying in the manger.

Chapter 5 Circumcision of Jesus

When the eight days were fulfilled according to the law of the Lord, as it is written in the book of Moses, they took the child and carried him to the temple to circumcise him. And so they circumcised the child, and gave him the name Jesus, as the angel of the Lord had said before he was conceived in the womb. Mary and Joseph perceived that the child must needs be for the salvation and ruin of many. Wherefore they feared God, and kept the child with fear of God.
Note: All the above is what is recorded in Matthew and Luke.

You think with what? I don't think you can think.

Here is 4:24 that says it all to ignorant foolsand read it with a magnifying glass:

"And as for those of you who, owing to circumstances, are not in a position to marry free believing women,[let them marry] believing maidens from among those whom you rightfully possess. And God knows all about your faith; each one of you is an issue of the other.

Marry them, then, with their people's leave, and give them their dowers in an equitable manner - they being women who give themselves in honest wedlock, not in fornication, nor as secret love-companions.

And when they are married, and thereafter become guilty of immoral conduct, they shall be liable to half the penalty to which free married women are liable.

This [permission to marry slave-girls applies] to those of you who fear lest they stumble into evil.

But it is for your own good to persevere in patience [and to abstain from such marriages]: and God is much-forgiving, a dispenser of grace."

And my dear blind one, please read this part again and again and again and write it down fifty times!!!

"Marry them, then, with their people's leave,

and give them their dowers in an equitable manner

- they being women who give themselves in honest wedlock, not in fornication, nor as secret love-companions."

No!

I think it was Paul, who encouraged and approved it.

Jesus' alleged Father started it and encouraged it, but Jesus remained silent on the issue and abstained from commenting on it. Haven't heard him protesting about slavery or condemning it anywhere. Perhaps, he got used to the idea that he and his people were slaves of the Romans and accepted slavery.

However, the Prophet is the only person, who initiated manumission of slaves. That was a very positive step. The thought did not even come into Jesus' mind.
