Who Is Allah?

“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?”

You ramble on water, spirit, fire, flames, tongues of fire, born again, baptism and what not!
All that simply means that Jesus preached repentance! You could not answer my questions earlier.
So, it is better that I let you know that Jesus sent his disciples to teach repentance. And you should have known well that it was said, "They went out and preached that people should repent." This was Jesus' main theme.
And before the arrival of Jesus on the Jordan, John the baptist was screaming his lungs out "Repent!!!"
St John baptized with water, while Jesus' followers baptized with water and the Holy Spirit. St John's baptism did not effect a change in the person. It did not make the person a new creation in Christ, an adopted child of God, heir to the Kingdom of God.

I see no one complaining about the "massive" cut and paste of our Buford the Great.....

But when I post one page a day, many people are "up in arms" against me.

Why this dual standard? May I ask?

Brilliant!
You took the words out of my mouth and beat me to it. For a moment I thought I wrote that. Just wrote a note to Paul on the water, spirit, fire, flame, hot gas, etc.
I am sure you went through the irritation that I experience, when I hear the ugly words Born Again, etc.
Mark 6:12 "They went out and preached that people should repent."
Repentance is a very difficult word for the Church and Jesus freaks, hence the spin on Born Again.
Thanks
The disciples could not baptize in the water and the Spirit till after Jesus' death, resurrection and the descent of the Holy Spirit.

Baloney!
Read Mark 6 and see what they did after Jesus sent them out!
"12 They went out and preached that people should repent."
So, forget everything and repent! That was Jesus' core message.
One could not be Born Again till after Jesus' death, resurrection and the descent of the Holy Spirit.

And why they "all born again" AFTER Jesus' death and resurrection? Is their a secret key?

And I have seen many "born agains", they are "worse" than before, what happened ? Some genetic mutation while being re-born?

Boy, you should get your head examined!!

It surely made Jesus a new person.

If his baptism had not been carried out by John, the heavens would not have opened, no voice would have shouted, no dove would have landed and he would not have been led and handed over to Satan. Right?

Baptism was itself a sign of repentance. That is why Jesus told his disciples to preach repentance.

Please Refer to Mark 6. You will understand for the first time what the Baptism Hullabaloo is all about.

FFS muztard baptism is part of the SPIRITUAL ritual of Christianity and is beyond the understanding of the spiritually dead slaves of the paedophile false prophet.

Christianity is the only religion which is different to the rest of the world religions. All false religions, try buy heaven by doing good works, they all put their faith in themselves and their ability to earn heaven. Thinking that they can purify themselves. This is what is known as PRIDE. Your faith in not in God, but in yourself, and you think you can earn or buy your way into heaven. But christianity says, I am a sinner, and need God to save me. It puts its faith totally in God and what he has done for us.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9).
The Pride sin of Satan exists in all Satan's false religions. For they all look inwardly toward self and self exaltation. Literally thinking they can't somehow raised themselves to heaven by their own efforts. This was Satan's sin of Pride. And its found in all the false religions created by Satan.

There is no spirituality in Christianity. It has lots of Shits but zero spirituality.

Baptism is a big horse shit!

Let me tell you that this horse shit known as baptism has no place in judaism and neither it has any place in Islam.

Baptism has never been a requirement in the mainstream Judaism, so where did this shit of Baptism come from?

Jesus was living in a village far from Jerusalem. Various sects were living in those remote areas.

John had his own sect and he was dunking his followers in the river for a good wash and then the men repented. That is all there is to it.

This baptism of Jesus by John is such a horrible bad shit, which the Christians are not aware of and
do not realize what it means.

It means that John purified Jesus and that Jesus repented!

Cut that bullshit out, John Preacher!

Christianity is not a religion. It is a runaway cult from Judaism. It is a false religion and everything about it is based on falsehood.

This religion is even worse than Hinduism. At least, the Hindus have a clear Trinity. They know the three deities in their Godhead.

And look at the absurd and monstrous Trinity of Christianity:

Father is not the son. Father is not the Ghost.
The son is not the Father. The son is not the Ghost.
The Ghost is not the Father. The Ghost is not the son.

There are three in the absurd Godhead.

And then comes another , silly, stupid, false and absurd claim that Jesus is God. So, Jesus is the Father. Right?

See how messed up is Christianity? To me, Christianity is Satan's revenge against Jesus.

Moses slaughtered the lamb, as sacrifice for sin, on passover. Its blood cleansed the Jewish nation for the year. So why is it so hard to believe that a sinless man could take the place of the passover lamb, bringing atonement for sin by his blood, just as the lamb did?

My position is coming from a position of Truth. If I discovery a new atomic particle I would want to share this knowledge with everyone, whether they believe it or not. They may say I didn't find a new particle or they can perform the same experiment I performed to see if the particle truly exists. I found God and I will share the knowledge of Him to everyone, and they can say I am wrong or they can also seek God to see if I am right. As I said before there are many spiritual disciplines that may aid one in finding God.
Physics is a science has professional standards as per what is worthy of teaching others. Your philosophy does not scientific standards, so your argument is a false equivalence.

The point remains, you are not preaching because you WANT to, you are preaching because you NEED to, in order to construct your indentity (i.e. be who you are). That is an absurd way to go though life, in my opinion, and certainly very codependendent.

Who told you that Moses slaughtered the lamb as sacrifice for sin? Where does sin fit in the passover?

It had nothing to do with sin. Read Exodus 11.

Lies upon lies and nothing but lies!
