“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?”

BUFORD,
I've told in the past to keep away from Rabbee.
He's evil, retarded, a liar, lacking in intelligence, uncultured, a fanatic, a satanist, deluded and possessed and please note that the adverse being possessing him is dangerous.
So, take care.
It'll be best if you ignore the brain-dead lunatic.
Stay safe.
Is there anything at all good about Rabbee? Does he eat his vegetables?

I would prefer if he just starts eating his meds again so that he could have a coherent conversation. But I doubt that's ever going to happen. Speaking of vegetables, he can start eating his head first because he has the brain of a lima bean.

ETs are here and the White House knows it, says actual former senator

"The whole alien conspiracy thing? Turns out it's all true. Extraterrestrials have visited Earth. At least that what Mike Gravel says, and he’s a former senator from Alaska, so he should know. And he knows a lot. It’s dangerous stuff. You may not even want to keep reading. "It goes right to the White House," Gravel revealed this week in Washington, where he was paid $20,000 by a UFO advocacy group to speak at the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. But how could this information be squelched so effectively, and by whom? "What we're faced with here is, in areas of the media, and the government too, an effort to marginalize and ridicule people who have specific knowledge," said Gravel, who should be marginalized and ridiculed. Trust us. We're the media."

It was a very specific question. You are given answers from the book you use to question people when you say where did Jesus say this and that and when someone quotes from them, you call them corrupted. So tell me what I am supposed to quote from to answer you? Why do you keep repeating the same questions when you refuse to answer any questions put to you? And the answer is that you are merely a parrot that has been told to ask these questions but you don't know what to do when someone presents an answer that you never thought of, because you don't even have a single thought that is actually your own.
<quoted text>
How could I when you will only claim the quotes come from a corrupted book when you don't like them? Where would you like me to quote from? The Quran?

5. "I am God Incarnate"
6. "I am THE Father".
7. "I am made of sin"
8. "God is a trinity and I am part of that trinity"
9. "I am your God who came to earth in human form as my own son to die for the sins of gentiles on a roman cross"
10. "Through belief in my unconditional/loving/willing sacrifice as your God in human form as my own son, you can have eternal life".
11. "Therefore, Worship me and the cross".

She was a dumb dumb.
She didn't know how to handle a man.
Her story is in rebellion of her own failings.
So she became a whore after her marriage failed.

You probably got a hard on reading that story wishing you could find someone like that.
I bet you could really satisfy her with your tongue.
Your mouth is probably drooling right now.

That was your point in trying to discredit abstinence before marriage.
Your point was that free sex is better before marriage in determining the out come of a marriage.

And the other point you were trying to make was that its better to become a whore before marriage to find the right person.

For every story like you posted there are many who found abstinence before marriage a blessing.

So it was the sex part you wanted high lighted in your post.
And now you are complaining about it.

Messianic Prophecy: What Is It?
Messianic prophecy is the collection of over 100 predictions (a conservative estimate) in the Old Testament about the future Messiah of the Jewish people. These predictions were written by multiple authors, in numerous books, over approximately 1,000 years. Messianic Prophecy is so dramatic today, because with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the reliability of the Septuagint version of the Old Testament (both of which have been proven to exist prior to the time Jesus walked on the earth) you can be assured that these prophecies were not “conspired” after-the-fact.
Messianic Prophecy: Fulfillment by Jesus Christ
Messianic prophecy was fulfilled by the Messiah, Jesus Christ. Although many Jews did not accept Jesus as their Messiah, many did, and they became the Jewish sect later known as the Christians. Christianity, based in dramatic part on the fulfillment of historical prophecy, spread rapidly throughout the Roman Empire of the 1st Century. Examine the prophecies yourself, and calculate the probability of one man fulfilling just a handful of the most specific ones, and you’ll be amazed.
But did Jesus fulfill the ones that matter most. The ones that the author's of the New Testament couldn't fabricate?

Bring Peace: Micah 5:5; Isaiah 2:4
Return the Jews to Israel: Isaiah 43:5-6
Build the Third Temple: Ezekiel 37:26-28
Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel: Zechariah 14:9

And that doesn't broach the subject of whether Jesus actually fulfilled the prophecies you claim.

The Account of Noah

The Qur'an also incorrectly retells many of the Biblical accounts. Here are just two brief examples. The Bible clearly teaches that all of Noah's sons came into the ark with him.

This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.... The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.... And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.(Genesis 6:9-10, 7:1, 7:7)

However, in the Qur'an one of Noah's sons did not come into the ark:

And Noah called to his son, who was standing apart (from the ark), "Embark with us, my son, and be thou not with the unbelievers!" He said, "I will take refuge in a mountain, that shall defend me from the water." ... And the waves came between them and he was drowned.(Sura 11:42-43, Arberry)

Thus the story of Noah in the Qur'an does not confirm the Bible's teaching.

Oh, and I've heard of the second coming. A do over for Jesus to correct his failings. A deus ex machina trying to bring the most pious of Jews into the Christian fold. The ones who truly understood what the prophecies were all about. The idea that was given to John by the angels in a dream.(Wait, where have I heard of revelation given by angels in dreams?)

You are the only one who calls that behavior "whore"

There is no data available I know of to back up your opinion that abstinence is effective. All the ancedotal data points in the opposite direction.

I have no complaints. Neither myself nor my wife was a virgin at marriage, and we are all the happy about that.

The people who I know that married young with no sexual experiences are the ones who divorced later to sow their oats...Those of use who had our experiences BEFORE we married, seem to forge more deeper bonds. Common sense, I believe.

May be you asked the wrong person (or you yourself answered your own Question).

I will ask you first , What is a Prophet and what are the qualities of a True Prophet of God?

Unless we agree on those, how can you say some one is a True prophet of God and some one is not?

PS:

Believe me, you people do not have even 1 % proof for ANY of your prophets than we have about the truthfulness of our prophet.

It was not because of no reason that God sent him as a last and final prophet for all nations till the end of world!!

That's assuming that God did. All I know is that God would not misunderstand the true nature of the sky and cosmos like the Quran did. You can start with 69:16 and tell us all how the sky is supposed to become weak and crack open or tear open unless it was thought of as some sort of dome, roof or canopy, which just so happens to be EXACTLY what 7th century Bedouin Arabs thought it was. Muhammad wrote that verse and many others that make mistakes about the true nature of the cosmos and the earth. Go ahead and ignore it.

<quoted text>Think what you will, and say what you want to say.
But Muslims are the living proof that they are missing out on the benefits of the gift of Gods grace to man.
Muslims possesses the sin of pride.
Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.
Biblical lists
In the Book of Proverbs (Mishlai), among the verses traditionally associated with King Solomon, it states that the Lord specifically regards "six things the Lord hateth, and the seventh His soul detesteth", namely:[4]
1.A proud look
2.A lying tongue
3.Hands that shed innocent blood
4.A heart that devises wicked plots
5.Feet that are swift to run into mischief
6.A deceitful witness that uttereth lies
7.Him that soweth discord among brethren
While there are seven of them, this list is considerably different from the traditional one, with only pride clearly being in both lists.
A Lesson in Humility! The inspired writer of the Proverbs states:“Pride is before a crash, and a haughty spirit before stumbling. Better is it to be lowly in spirit with the meek ones than to divide spoil with the self-exalted ones.”(Proverbs 16:18, 19) The wisdom of those words is well borne out in the case of the Syrian general Naaman, who lived in the time of the Israelite prophet Elisha. Naaman was a leper. In his search for a cure, he traveled to Samaria thinking that he would get a personal audience with Elisha. Instead, the prophet sent his servant with instructions for Naaman to bathe seven times in the Jordan River. Naaman took umbrage at the treatment and counsel. Why could not the prophet come out and speak to him personally instead of sending a servant? And surely, any Syrian river was as good as the Jordan! Pride was his problem. The result? Happily for him, wiser counsel prevailed.“At that he went down and began to plunge into the Jordan seven times according to the word of the man of the true God; after which his flesh came back like the flesh of a little boy and he became clean.”—2 Kings 5:14.
Muslims lack humility they pride them self in the foolishness of Muhammad.
Muhammad instilled all these deadly sins into the mind of Muslims.
Irrelevant and off-topic!

Answer the questions raised in the post. Here it is:

Who was the bull-shitter, who came up with that theory?

The man died for no nobody's sin. That is another bull shit that Jesus died for the sins of all.

I don't know where the hell all that junk and stuff comes from? I don't find Jesus talking about that stuff.

"It's finished" simply means, "It is all gone to waste and down the drain".

You must address the post and answer the questions asked. Be honest, if you fear God.

Once you have answered, only then you can write your usual rant!
