Who Is Allah?

There are 255953 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?”

Jesus and the Samaritan Woman

When we read the Bible we must understand Gods word in truth and and in the Spirit.
From the Womb
The early church used the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Old Testament completed prior to the first advent of Christ.
A scripture often quoted by the early church fathers touching on the eternity of Christ is Psalm 110:3.
You'd never guess why, from the wildly varying English translations of a corrupt Hebrew text of uncertain meaning. But the Septuagint reads like so, "The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
The Lord shall send out a rod of power for thee out of Sion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. With thee is dominion in the day of thy power, in the splendours of thy saints: I have begotten thee from the womb before the morning." (Brenton Septuagint).
Here is how Justin Martyr quotes the passage: "From the womb, before the morning star, have I begotten thee." (Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, Chapter XXII); "In the splendors of Thy holiness have I begotten Thee from the womb, before the morning star." (Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, Chapter LXIII). "Before the morning" means 'before time'-- i.e., in eternity.
Rev 22:16 (NIV) "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."
So Jesus in saying: "I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star"
Jesus is saying "I am before Time" in eternity.

The Peshitta reads, "Thy people shall be glorious in the day of thy power; arrayed in the beauty of holiness from the womb, I have begotten thee as a child from the ages." (George M. Lamsa translation). The Vulgate for the Greek psalms reads, "ex utero ante luciferum genui te" (Psalm 109:3). The only modern Bible I have come across with anything like the old text is the New American Bible, "Yours is princely power from the day of your birth. In holy splendor before the daystar, like the dew I begot you."

This Psalm speaks of the Messiah, because Jesus Himself so applied it. Matthew Henry says of Psalm 110, "This psalm is pure gospel; concerning Christ, the Messiah promised to the fathers and expected by them." So if you had asked the Greek-speaking churchmen assembled at Nicaea for a proof-text on "begotten of the Father before all worlds", they'd have supplied Psalm 110:3.

One of the blessings of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has been renewed respect for the Septuagint. For centuries disrespected as a wildly non-literal,'free' rendition of a Hebrew text not much different from the modern Masoretic text, it's now realized to have been a literal translation of a older Hebrew text differing from that of the Masoretes. Thus, some of the 'stranded' New Testament citations of Old Testament verses one unhappily finds in the KJV translation, based on the Masoretic Hebrew, are starting to creep their way back into the Old Testament of modern Bibles, where the New Testament authors thought they belonged all along. Try to find the Old Testament verse the author of Hebrews is citing in Hebrews 1:6: "And let all the angels of God worship him" -- you'll not find it in the KJV, it's 'stranded'. It's Deuteronomy 32:43 in the Septuagint: "Rejoice, ye heavens, with him, and let all the angels of God worship him; rejoice ye Gentiles, with his people, and let all the sons of God strengthen themselves in him..." (Brenton Septuagint); but it's found its way back, albeit in debased form, into the NRSV and NEB. While usually the newer versions bring nothing good, only loss and defacement, one can always hope. Might one day this explicit statement that God the Father begot the Messiah before the morning star find its way home, too.

Clement of Alexandria quotes this passage also,

"And do not suppose that my song of salvation is new in the same sense as an implement or a house. For it was 'before the morning star [pro heosphorou]'; and,'in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.' But error is old, and truth appears to be a new thing." (Clement, Exhortation to the Greeks, Chapter 1);

"'Awake, thou that sleepest,' He cries,'and arise from the dead, and there shall shine upon thee Christ the Lord,' the sun of the resurrection, He that is begotten 'before the morning star [pro heosphorou]', He that dispenses life by His own rays." (Clement, Exhortation to the Greeks, Chapter IX).

How does one 'beget' a word? The answer is found in scripture:

"My heart is astir with gracious words [logos LXX];
I speak my poem to a king;
my tongue is the pen of an expert scribe."
(Psalm 45:1, Tanakh, Jewish Publication Society)

Modern commentators perceive this as an autobiographical confession by the human writer of the Psalm, because, "...out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." (Matthew 12:34). But the early church fathers realized the prophets do not speak from their own supply: "Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me:'Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.'" (Jeremiah 1:9). Even those passages in Psalms which record the plaint of humanity abandoned by God, like Psalm 22, were found ultimately to be prophetic and thus divine, foretelling the words spoken by the Messiah on the cross. So those early church writers who quote Psalm 45:1 as 'my heart has emitted my good word', were understanding the speaker here to be no mortal scribe, but the actual Author.

Another Septuagint reference proclaiming the pre-existence of Christ which has been 'lost' from the Masoretic text, is Psalms 72:5: "And he shall continue as long as the sun, and before the moon for ever." (Brenton Septuagint). Justin quotes this passage as, "...and He shall co-endure with the sun, and before the moon unto all generations." (Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, Chapter LXIV).

At the Beginning of His way

"The LORD possessed [qanah] me at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old.
I have been established from everlasting,
From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.
When there were no depths I was brought forth,
When there were no fountains abounding with water.
Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills, I was brought forth;
While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields,
Or the primal dust of the world.
When He prepared the heavens, I was there,
When He drew a circle on the face of the deep,
When He established the clouds above,
When He strengthened the fountains of the deep,
When He assigned to the sea its limit,
So that the waters would not transgress His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth,
Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman;
And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,
Rejoicing in His inhabited world,
And my delight was with the sons of men."
(Proverbs 8:22-31).

Who is the speaker here? A poetic fiction? A very powerful poetic fiction, to be God's master craftsman!: "The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens; by His knowledge the depths were broken up, and clouds drop down the dew." (Proverbs 3:19-20). Paul proclaimed Jesus Christ as the "wisdom" of God: "For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God." (1 Corinthians 1:22-24).

An unfortunate translation of Proverbs 8:22 in the Septuagint helped to precipitate the Arian controversy. But the Bible does not say God's Wisdom is created -- as if before inventing this novel thing, God had been a fool --, but known, found and declared:

"From where then does wisdom come?
And where is the place of understanding?
It is hidden from the eyes of all living,
And concealed from the birds of the air.
Destruction and Death say,
'We have heard a report about it with our ears.'
God understands its way,
And He knows its place.
For He looks to the ends of the earth,
And sees under the whole heavens,
To establish a weight for the wind,
And apportion the waters by measure.
When He made a law for the rain,
And a path for the thunderbolt,
Then He saw wisdom and declared it;
He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out." (Job 28:20-27).

'Qanah' literally means 'possess', just as the KJV literally translates it; only by extension could it imply 'creation' if that is the manner of coming into possession:

Reproach of Christ

"By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward." (Hebrews 11:24-26).

Christ's people continue to suffer reproach for His name: "If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified." (1 Peter 4:14). How did Moses share "the reproach of Christ"? He prophesied a Messiah to come (Deuteronomy 18:15), but those who reproached him: Pharaoh, the rebellious children of Israel,-- are not recorded to have thrown this future prophecy in his face. Rather Israel's personally following Christ in the wilderness brought them to share in His reproach. It is unclear how this could be if He did not exist at the time.

That's a pretty astounding revelation when one finally sees that. It was astounding to me when I first realized that this thing that I think is me, is actually nothing but a combination of the thoughts of OTHERS that I respect or follow for whatever reason. It wasn't until I realized this that I was actually able to think and create my OWN thoughts. I think that everybody has the spirit hidden inside of them, and everybody is supposed to awaken this spirit and become their own unique version of Jesus, given their own unique abilities and circumstances. You don't copy Jesus. Jesus was Jesus, you are you. You become your own unique version. I think that everybody is supposed to read and study and ponder the scriptures for themselves as much as their leaders do and come to their own conclusions, rather than the conclusion of others. Why do you think that God made everybody unique?

<quoted text>
1. "I am God in flesh"
John 14:8-9. But I have also explained that my interpretation of this is that he is God in the flesh because everything he did was God doing it through him and he had no will of his own and therefore everything that he did was God doing it in the flesh form of Jesus. You already saw my longer explanation of this.
2. "I am God!"
John 8:58-59
3. "I am THE only begotten son of God"
John 10:33-36
4. "I am God in person"
This is a repeat of question 1
John 14:8-9
5. "I am God Incarnate"
This is a repeat of question 1 and 4
6. "I am THE Father and Father and I are one and the same person"
Does not say that, and I have explained how Jesus can be God on earth, the Son of God also, and also how no one is greater than the Father. I have explained how all three statements can be seen as true from my angle.
7. "I am made of sin"
It says that Jesus became sin, not I am made of sin, which is not to be taken literally. He took all of the past sins and offered himself up as sin itself so that sins can be redeemed. It is symbolic, but also true.
8. "God is a trinity and I am part of that trinity or triune"
I have explained many many many times before that the word "Trinity" is a term that was invented to describe a relationship that people saw between God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Some verses would say this is right, others may not, but my theory on this whole thing, which I have explained, allows for this and can explain this, even if the "exact" word was never used. The "exact" word "Christian" was never mentioned either. It is a word that non Christians people made up for followers of Christ. Nothing wrong with giving a group of people a title and nothing wrong with someone calling themselves that. Everything needs a word if you want to group people into titles.
Then there is Matthew 28:18 and Corinthians2 13:14. Nobody seemed to ask what the heck Paul was talking about when he said that, so the idea was around right from the beginning. He wouldn't have said what he said if his readers were totally unfamiliar with the idea. The only thing that Nicea did was to formalize what was already there for hundreds of years.
9. "I am your God who came to earth in human form as my own son to die on a Roman cross for the sins of Gentiles or the world or the entire humanity/"
He said that in pieces in different places. That was very silly for you to ask for one long, run on sentence like that.
10. "Through belief in my unconditional/loving/willing sacrifice as your God in human form as my own son, you can have eternal life"
John 10:28 14:6 and other verses in those chapters. Jesus did not make long, run on sentences like you are asking that he should.
11. "Therefore, Worship me and the cross"
He did not say the cross, that is merely a symbol of something that Christians believe happened and the cross itself is NOT worshiped any more than Muslims worship merely ink on paper copies of the Quran. I see nothing wrong with it. Jesus didn't recommend any symbols at all and left that up to followers to do. He did not recommend against them either as long as the symbol itself is not worshiped.
12. "Father, ghost and I are co equal, co eternal and consubstantial gods forming a godhead"
Not specifically said, it is a conclusion drawn from many verses. Are people not allowed to draw conclusions? But it is actually not an iron clad requirement for one to believe that to be a Christian. They merely need to believe that Jesus was a physical form of God on earth and died for sins. Christians themselves debate the concept and all still remain Christians. Could be true, might not be. I have made no final decisions on that, nor do I need to.

If John was just people making up whatever they wanted to, don't you think they would have said things clearly the way YOU demand? So why didn't they, since they were just making all of this up to make Jesus look Divine? They could have easily just made up an instance where Jesus says "I am God in the flesh" to make their story convincing. So why didn't they? You don't think very much. If you want to get into Archeological aspects of John, then talk to Shamma. I think he did a really good job defending the legitimacy of John.

Anyway, your question did not specifically state which Gospels that you demand you answers from. But then again, they are all corrupted anyway, so why ask for anything from any of them? If a verse says what you want it to say, then that's the authentic verse, if a verse later in the chapter doesn't say what you want it to say, that's the unauthentic part. So you merely use the Gospels in a self serving way with no objectivity at all.

A few weeks ago, you asked where it said that they were supposed to preach to everyone rather than just the Jews. So I quoted to you from Mark where it said preach to all nations and you jumped all over Mark 9-20, but I also quoted the following from Luke and you had nothing to say about it.

Luke 24
45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them,“This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

So you just pay attention to whatever you think suits your argument and ignore or call corrupted whatever doesn't. So there's no point in having any "objective" conversation with someone such as this. The objective thing would be to not even ask about scriptures when you think they are all corrupted anyway. So the entire discussion is nothing but nonsense. Here is the definition for objective, because I know you are not even familiar with that word, let alone practice it in analysis.

They said: "Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: If thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy, we shall certainly be lost."
They take joint responsibility.
Quran often addresses men and woman.
Will be interesting to see similar recognition of women in "bible"
Adam was the serpent. It was a part of his anatomy. What they did was a sexual act (oral sodomy) Adam talked her into it. The curse on the serpent was the same as the curse on Adam. Her "desire" was in part a sexual desire. We blame the victim.
