Who Is Allah?

There are 225573 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?”

No group is blameless.
But...stealing the books of Jews, changing them around to create a mythical mangod as an insult to the G-d of Jews and then accuse them of having killed "their G-d in the form of a man"!!
This is the worst form of hypocrisy.
Thanks for a short but an excellent post.

I can't think of anything worse than that.

Are these poor mangod worshippers desperate?

Xtian..Priests are becoming Muslims because they can't keep telling lies to the world.

RCC is in tatters...and PANIC has "gripped" the mangod worshippers...

IF ONLY......they bothered to LISTEN to Jesus Pbuh, WHO NEVER CLAIMED HE WAS GOD/SON OF GOD ....OR NEVER TOLD THEM TO WORSHIP HIM!!!.......if only...if only...

JESUS WORSHIPPED GOD...JESUS NEVER CLAIMED DIVINITY...

The leaders of God's Catholic Church are infallible in matters of faith and morals. This does not mean they are impeccable. The Catechism of the Catholic Church was given us by God through His Church, point out where she teaches these atrocities committed by some of her members are in accordance with her teachings. The atrocities committed by muslims can be found in their koran.
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.

Any Catholic priest that leaves the Catholic Church and converts to Islam was not worthy of being a priest in the first place.

Those that do convert to Islam more likely are pedophiles.
Good riddance to them.

And they were not Jews before the giving of the law either. They were Hebrews. They were Israelites (as I said in my first post). They came from many many tribes.

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.!

Face it. Your church is full of pedophiles and all you do about it is blame Muslims. Weak.
Gay Pedophiles are Satan's attack on Gods Church.
And God is cleaning them out the Church.
Islam is pure evil.
And God will deal them.

Even Christianity is the result of Satan's attack on God's religion, which Jesus the Jew, practiced and followed faithfully till his last breath.

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.
