Who Is Allah?

There are 225193 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?”

You don't have to abide by any of the other commandments because you have the get out of jail free card.
So, I ask you the question again. Why didn't Jesus redeem you and other Christians from the laws on homosexuality? Why is the law on homosexuality different from the laws on Shabbat, or the laws on diet, or the laws on festivals, etc.?

Response:
There is no get out of jail free card.
Sin is sin Eric.
Your just another ignorant Jew

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.

I've seen at least one "response" to the post. I'm not going to answer such persons as continue in their pejorative way of answering. In fact, I don't believe some of them are really Catholic. Or maybe they are. It's possible. But sad. I'll be looking forward to the answer, but so far all we've seen is invective. But probably I think I'll be giving up looking for an answer in that direction. Even if it's not a good answer, but something other than invective and insults. Just as the scriptures say, from bad to worse.

SHABBAT - DAY OF REST IS A FARCE:

Day of rest? LOL.

Days, rest, work, etc, are petty human concepts.

While all talk about the Absolute Consciousness is futile since it is too remote and simply serves as the origin and support of the Manifestation, the operations of sustenance and smooth functioning of the planes of the Manifestation are the tasks delegated to the varied cosmic powers who rest not a minute.

These archetypal cosmic beings or powers ceaselessly function to maintain the numerous cosmic processes and if they fall into a state of quiescence the cosmos would falter and malfunction.

On the plane of gross matter, who has ever seen gravitation, electromagnetism, the weak force, wind or any other force taking rest at any point in time.

So, all talk about the 7th day of a week being a day of rest is meaningless unless of course a demonic being commands his possessed followers to take time out to worship it so that its ego, narcissism, megalomania get even more puffed up.

Right, didn't your mother tell you that just because everyone else does it that you can't do it anyway?

The question remains. If Jesus can redeem and relinquesh the sins of breaking the laws, why can't Jesus redeem and relinquesh the sins of homosexuality. The commandment breakers continue their actions week after week with impunity knowing that Jesus will forgive them. Why can't Jesus do the same for homosexuals. What is the difference from breaking the other laws and breaking the laws against homosexuality.

I mean to say that he was still a prophet after the so called fall. He was not stripped of the title.

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.

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.

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.

Instead of laughing your ass off, cry your ass off!

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.
