Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 Full story: The Brussels Journal 203,556

“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?”

Inscription

Mark 15:26 - The inscription:“The King of the Jews.”
Matthew 27:37 - The inscription:“This is Jesus the King of the Jews.”
Luke 23:38 - The inscription:“This is the King of the Jews.”
John 19:19 - The inscription:“Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”

If an inscription which is a visual thing could not be correctly translated, now imagine how would verbal narrations be distorted ?

Num 11:15,
"bera'ati" (my evil) was previously "bera'ateka" (Your evil), so that Moses' complaint to YHWH was,
"If you're going to burden me as a babysitter to these people, please kill me at once, that I may not look at Your evil"

Indeed!

It was a great observation, reader.

If there were a writer Tom, he would have reported:

"The inscription: "Jews' King"

Enjoyed reading that.

A great example of your valid question can be found in John 1 and Bible Gateway has opened a new door for Wycliffe's translation:

" John 1 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was at God, and God was the word.[In the beginning was the word, that is, God's Son, and the word was at God, and God was the word.]
2 This was in the beginning at God.
3 All things were made by him, and without him was made nothing [nought], that thing that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men;
5 and the light shineth in darknesses, and [the] darknesses comprehended not it."

Amazing disgrace!

soooorry if i am not, exactly what any of you didn't expect. but i do not answer to any of you, but only to BOTH MyPARENT in HEAVEN only. THEY are in charge of my life story, here in ThisStory of Creation not any of you. so don't think for one milisecond, that all of you and your grandmother cannot be replaced. for i shall do, as commanded by My Parent.

and your absurd statments about me, are no better than thier absurd statements about me. because none of you, are dealing in TheReality of being here in ThisStory of Creation again. and your delusions of not being here in TheTorah Happening, are just that vanity from that same old devil again...

Jesus is body, blood, soul, and divinity. Man is body, blood and soul. The divinity of God was hypostatically united with the His body, blood and soul. As our souls are united with our bodies God's divinity is united with Jesus' body making Him God.
Actually, this Jesus of yours and his 'father' are both men.

Let us help you find the real God, the LORD Almighty Allah, so that you can forget the two men and a ghost.

Hypostatic union is another absurd doctrine, which took about 80 years (451-533) to be fully fabricated.

You may not realize but this absurd doctrine was against the so-called in-dwelling of God in men.
So, if you are for the hypostatic union, then please DISCARD the in-dwelling of God in men.

Arianism, Apollinarianism, Ebionism, Eutychianism, Nestorianism and many other 'isms' were totally against this absurd doctrine. The Church declared them heresies and declared her own heresy 'the hypostatic union' as correct.

Indeed! Paul's posts do not make any sense.

When you respond to Paul, make it very short. Do not go into detail as that would be a waste of time.

The Bible declares that Jesus is God:
"In the beginning was the Word(The Son), and the Word was with God, and the WORD WAS GOD. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3).

"Who, being IN THE FORM OF GOD thought it not robbery to be EQUAL WITH GOD: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." (Philippians 2:6-8).
Jesus is the very image of God himself, but he humbled himself and became man. This is why he calls God his Father and his God, for he had made himself like man, and the ruler of man is God.

Because Jesus humbled himself to become like man, and submited himself to his Father, his Father has highly exalted him again, set him at his right hand:

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus (Yeshua) every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ IS LORD to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11).

The Trinity, can be explained in scientific terms as: Three Clones, all identical, yet all One and the same.One person duplicated three times. One God, yet in three beings, all identical in essence, just like clones. This is why Jesus said,”I and the Father are One.”
If you can't understand scripture, maybe you can understand science!

That is a fraudulent translation. It is not present in any of the ancient manuscripts.

Why did Jesus not talk about the third at all here? There are only two in that. Right?

He did not say, "I and the Father and the Ghost are one."

Why did he leave the ghost out and who brought the ghost in?

Trinity is absurd and a lie, JP. It does not have any support from Jesus. Trinity was concocted long, real long after Jesus had passed away. Please let him rest in peace. Thanks

Instead of pointing "mistakes" of Quran, won't it be easier to bring a "Duplicate Quran"?
Follow the advice which I gave to SC, that would be easier and nice.
And who says that Quran says that humans were created out of "Clot of Blood"?
Did you know what Arabic word Quran used? Check its different shades of meanings and you will find that it matches with whatever views we have as on now and what we might have in future.
Why do you not read the books, Quran and Bible in the light of Modern Science by Dr. Maurice Buccaile?
Are you saying the koran does not say human conception starts with a clot of blood? So what does the koran say?

Only the Catholic Church has the divine authority, through the Keys given St Peter by Jesus, to declare what is truth and what is heresy. Get it, Divine Authority. Jesus remains with His Catholic Church, Emanuel, so that now we can proclaim we are 'taught by God".
