Who Is Allah?

There are 243129 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?”

The difference is that Jesus shed His blood on the cross allowing me to repent my sins and Jesus paid the penalty for my repented sin.
Jews and Muslims don't accept Jesus, so they live and die in their sins.

Jews do not keep the Sabbath.

All Jew owned and investments in their shoppes remain open for business on the Sabbath.
Jews pretend to observe the Sabbath while their business are working to fill their pockets with money on the Sabbath.

LMAO!
Hello, Talking Tom

During my stay in many Western countries, I have always seen shops belonging to Jews and operated by the Jews, closed on Sabbath.

If you happen to be in London, go to Golders Green, where majority of the Jews live and you will see all shops closed.

Hello, Dr. Sin

Jesus did not die for anybody's sin. Also, he was not sent to die for the sins of the world.

We do accept brother Jesus as a messenger of God. He was one of the most obedient slaves of God Almighty.

Mohammed was no prophet. so his words can not be taken as coming from God.
Mohammed formed his own kingdom on earth, and Muslims are subjected to Mohammed's laws.

By not understanding how Muslims view Adam.

Islamic view

In Islam, Adam (Adem; Arabic: &#1570;&#1583;&#16 05;) is believed to have been the first human being and the first prophet. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence, who also venerate his wife, Eve, as the "mother of mankind".[16] Muslims see Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an promulgates that all the prophets preached the same faith of submission to God.[17] According to Hadith, Abu Huraira reports Muhammad as having said, "God created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall" and, "Any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (in appearance and figure). People have been decreasing in stature since Adam's creation."[18]

Muslims disregard the the teaching of the Bible, and enforce the laws of Mohammed on all people.

You are to slow in understanding what you are dealing with.
You are trying to find common ground with Muslims, and there is no common ground between Islam an other religions.

01. Screwed is the screwed by your own words by definition. Christians by default have been tricked by the devil to worship him. The cross you so cherish is the devils trident, the two end don't have to put upwards to show his sigh.

02. To the Muslims you worship a monolithic pagan moon god with his consort allat the sun god. You don't believe me see Mecca temple on main doors and inside the temple there are gold doors with the moon and sun deity on them in clear view to all how have eyes. The three ancient Arabian goddess are on show also as the waning moon, the Muslim star, and the black stone of mecca are all symbols of these goddesses. These people follow a false deceptive religion which is a trident hybrid of three religion brought together, that being, Judaism, Christianity, and the pagan moon god. The Arab word of Allah has the trident in the word.

03. Judaisum 2/3 are guilt of not following the creator, and have given away the land the creator had given you by birth right for Judah to the Gentiles. You all believe this is just a myth about the creator, to whom all have already been judged.

The creator will wipe clean all those who are unworthy to be on the Judah land and a great heavenly kingdom city shall descend from the sky unto these lands as prophercized by Daniel. In to this city will the chosen follow from the four corners of this earth. The rest of the world will be governed from this city and be subject to the creators justice. Believe it of not, up to you!
Ans.

01. I leave the comments about Christianity to the Christians to answer.

02. What you wrote about Allah being moon god shows what type of reasoning you follow. There is never ever any evidence that Arabs used the word Allah for any moon.

ALLAT, UZZA and MANAT have nothing to do with Allah, they were given names after Allah ‘s qualities.

There never is or was a picture of sun or moon on the door of Kaaba and the door was a later addition to the original building. The original building constructed by Prophet Abraham and Ishmael had no roof or door.

They were just added when Tribes of QURAISH reconstructed Kaaba a few years before our prophet declared his mission.

So most of your “fundamental reasoning” is based on hearsays.

03. The same we can say about your views on the land of Juda, there was no Juda when the promise was made by God to Abraham. As for “New Jerusalem” it is the city of Makkah which has already overshadowed the splendour and Glory of Jerusalem for more than 1400 years now.

When our prophet was asked to change his direction of prayer from Jerusalem to Makkah that was the formal declaration that Jews have been formally stripped of their “chosen people and chosen race title for ever”

It is you who are living in a false dream and not we Muslims.

Just re read the words you wrote about him, making him as perfect as possible for anyone other than God.

These qualities did not desert him when he ate from that tree.

That is why I said you should be cautious in your approach.

Because this is the general practice of Christians, they always go to extreme. There is no middle path for them.

Nice to speak with you again, you are still the most in line with my type of thinking but I am way outside the box the religions have trapped humanity in.

I would be happy to conclude that the Catholic church and the Pope are working against and not for Christ. Do they teach no lines on maps, dividing of land, money-changers, sellers or soldiers in the temple of God? No they do not and they want everyone to follow them who are 180 degrees off course rather than the man they are supposed to listen to.

You don't get it Eric.
Jesus does not give any one a free pass.
Christians must confess their sins to Jesus, and repent their sins, and do penance, meaning pay restitution to those they offended if restitution is called for.
Acts of homosexuality are sins, and those that continue to perform homosexuality acts are not forgiven.
They live their life in sin.
You don't observe the laws of God.
You excuse them under secular laws.
You follow the laws of man, rather then the laws of God.
you don't know the difference between "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and render unto God what is God's.
As a Jew you do not understand Jesus and the NT.
No Christian is automatically forgiven of their sins.
A Christian that continues to sin, his sins are not forgiven, for He was not sincere in repenting his sins.
If I die in un-repented sin I die to hell.
Ok, let's see how YOU do this in practice.

You didn't keep Shabbat yesterday. YOUR Bible has numerous laws that provide for what you can and can't do on Shabbat and you broke a number of those requirements. This isn't the first time you broke these laws. Please explain to us whether:

1. You confessed this continuing sin to Jesus (this meets your definition of sin that you have given us previously).
2. Whether you repented since you continue to break these laws in YOUR Bible
3. What penance you did for breaking these laws in YOUR Bible.

These are the 3 steps according to you. And, none of us want to hear about others that also break these laws in YOUR Bible, because your mother told you that she didn't care what the other kids did or didn't do. And, Jesus told you about the mote. We have identified an action that meets YOUR definition of sin. Now, explain to us how Jesus redeems YOU from this sin.

Deity defined

A god or goddess (in a polytheistic religion): "a deity of ancient Greece".
Divine status, quality, or nature: "a ruler driven by delusions of deity".

Yes you are correct, however there is a creator of living light, creator of image this being Aten whim is not a deity.

Hello, Talking Tom
Jesus did not volunteer. He was arrested, according to your gospels!
Would have been a great story, if he had handed himself over to his adversaries, asking them to kill him.
Actually I have been arrested with intention and by intention several times including when I stood in front of a courthouse that was trying to arraign me with a compound bow and quiver of razor tipped arrows over my shoulder. I had other people turn me over to the authorities so that I could get into court and defend my actions and voice my opposition to the US judicial system and capitalism in general. The jury tried to nail me to a cross but the judge immediatly over turned the convictions claiming that no reasonable trier of fact could have convicted me of any wrong doing. And I did admit to threatening the system and all the judges every step of the way in numerouus trials. I controlled every aspect of my trials including the witnesses, prosecution and the evidence which was entirely Biblical. When it comes to standing against the ways of this world there is no one who even comes to close to what I have been doing for decades.

Preaching to ignorant fools like you is not breaking the Sabbath.
Do not the Rabbi's read from The Torah and preach in the synagogue on the Sabbath?
Or have you not read in the law, that on the Sabbath days the priest in the temple break the Sabbath and are guiltless?
And you do not find your self being an accuser, and who is the accuser?
Is not the accuser Satan himself?
I paid my respect to the lord, I attended Church service and gave thanks to the lord for his blessings upon me and my family.
And I prayed for world peace, and for the sick, and hungry and the poor and for those that are in need of salvation, and for our armed service men and women, and for yes, even Obama that God might guide him and our Congressmen and women.
And yes I put a donation in the poor box to help feed those in need of food and shelter.
So what am I guilty of?

Ignorance my Indian vedandic brahmin is a fatal virtual floor within the deep recesses of your intellectual spiritual pagan assumptions. Your percieved prophet/avataar belief in the divine supreme manifestation of the absolute consciousness upon the earth plane.

The fool in actual fact is you, being so sure of yourself in the belief that all others are non existent and are evil in your view. Evil manifests itself in different ways, one is bitterness which you portray to others with spiritual ridicule.

Brahmin, Shiva, and Krishna are but all shadows to Aten. They bow with their heads to the ground in shame, as these entities know the real almighty primary living light creator. The day the living light creator reveals his presence to this world, the stars from heaven will fall, the day will become night, the heaven and earth shall tremble as the creator walks this earth, then all humans will know and fall to their knees in shame, all celestrial beings will bow, and the mountains will melt, evil will no longer exist and that day no living human will escape his destiny with the creator's judgment.
