Who Is Allah?

There are 252846 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?”

Ouch!
Why do you stoop so low? You force me to run down the biblical Jesus and all your apostles.
Actually, brother Jesus never appointed any one a priest. Priests were appointed by Rome.
Your sin is forgiven. Don't do that again.!
Islam is pure evil.
It was founded by a liar, rapist, robber, and Murderer.

Just as Sin entered the world through the 1st Adam, it returned with the
so-called 2nd Adam or the Last Adam. He found it, brought back and released it.

Where do you find what they did in the teachings of the Catholic Church? The cover ups were the failures of human beings and not the Catholic Church. We are all called to be new creations in Christ, but sadly very few live up to this calling.
More media attention is given to the relatively few cases of cover ups, given the number of priests, then is given to the abuses islam imposes on women: rapes, FGM, acid thrown in the faces of school girls, women being stoned to death, women stoned for being raped. How about the homosexuals being hung, Christian churches being burnt, Christians be killed, tortured and imprisoned in islamic countries. Why are these atrocities not covered by the News media?
Relatively few cases of cover ups?

uhhhhhhh...."few"???

I could give a rats ask about what the teachings are. Its about the actual behavior.

Son, you must be an IDIOT or a JACKASS. I am more than aware that the word Jews was coined by men and long long after the giving of the law. I used Jews for communication purposes ONLY and this has been explained to you many times.
Communicate with whom?

You seem to be slightly deficient in this regard.

There are no straight pedophiles.
The mind of a pedophile is distorted in his sexual preferences.
He sees no wrong in the wrong he does.

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Because others have falling short does not mean we need to fall short. We must look at oursleves in putting on the New Man in Christ Jesus, and not others.

Glad that you finally recognize humility.

Now you can understand the futility in criticizing people of other religions. The glasshouse-stones thing.

I look forward to your faith-inspired change in behavior on this thread.

Please rest assured that neither myself, my ancestors (who were forced out of Spain in 1492), nor my landsman care from whence the impetus came. If the leaders of the church are infallible in matters of morals, their morals have proven to be severely lacking over time.
Now as far as teachings are concerned, you are truly aware that there exist at least 2 NT references to conversion. e.g., Matthew 16:15; Acts 2:38,41 There are no NT references on how.
We see encyclicals throughout your history exhorting "punishments" for not converting. Council of Basil 1431-1435
The ECUMENICAL COUNCIL OF FLORENCE (1438-1445) approved of punishing those who did not convert and supported the taking of property of those who refused to convert.
etc etc
The pope declared the Council of Basel heretical. Give links to your claims about the Council of Florence.

The truth must be preached in season and out of season. I will continue to point out the faults found in other religions as they fall short of God's call for us in Christ Jesus.

I guess your visit with humility was short lived.

The article states "SIMILAR" to straight. but makes a distinction.
Between straight and non-straight.
The same as gays there is a distinction between straight and gay.
A straight does not go through any period of pedophile sexual preference.

01. You are the only one who has not understood what I said. I didn't say that Quran every fifth sentence or so doesn't make any sense. Try to read it, instead to make things up.

02. As for the very recitation of Quran make tears strong men... well, I can only laugh about that idiocy.
Ans.

01 What else is my job if not reciting the Quran daily? Quran is the "most read" book in the world for past 1400 years. If you cannot understand anything after five verses, it is YOU who are at fault and not Quran.

If you find the smell of rose "offensive" and taste of honey "disgusting"….it is YOU who should see a "mental doctor"….there is no problem with Rose and Honey.

02. So you "laugh" at the idiocy of "strong men moving to tears just listening to recitation of Quran"? Do you?

Well there is similitude in Quran for people like you, where it says "Then yours (Jews) hearts hardened: they became like a Rock and even worse in hardness: for among rocks there are some from which Rivers gush forth; others there are which when split asunder send forth water; and others which fell down for fear of Allah…" (2:74).

So Quran tells us that there are people whose hearts are as hard as stones and even harder than stones.

If some one wants proof, they should look at your post!!

Now do not say that you did not understand this Quranic verse!!
