Who Is Allah?

There are 256371 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?”

Indeed! Paul's posts do not make any sense.

When you respond to Paul, make it very short. Do not go into detail as that would be a waste of time.

The Bible declares that Jesus is God:
"In the beginning was the Word(The Son), and the Word was with God, and the WORD WAS GOD. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3).

"Who, being IN THE FORM OF GOD thought it not robbery to be EQUAL WITH GOD: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." (Philippians 2:6-8).
Jesus is the very image of God himself, but he humbled himself and became man. This is why he calls God his Father and his God, for he had made himself like man, and the ruler of man is God.

Because Jesus humbled himself to become like man, and submited himself to his Father, his Father has highly exalted him again, set him at his right hand:

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus (Yeshua) every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ IS LORD to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11).

The Trinity, can be explained in scientific terms as: Three Clones, all identical, yet all One and the same.One person duplicated three times. One God, yet in three beings, all identical in essence, just like clones. This is why Jesus said,”I and the Father are One.”
If you can't understand scripture, maybe you can understand science!

That is a fraudulent translation. It is not present in any of the ancient manuscripts.

Why did Jesus not talk about the third at all here? There are only two in that. Right?

He did not say, "I and the Father and the Ghost are one."

Why did he leave the ghost out and who brought the ghost in?

Trinity is absurd and a lie, JP. It does not have any support from Jesus. Trinity was concocted long, real long after Jesus had passed away. Please let him rest in peace. Thanks

Hypostatic union is another absurd doctrine, which took about 80 years (451-533) to be fully fabricated.
You may not realize but this absurd doctrine was against the so-called in-dwelling of God in men.
So, if you are for the hypostatic union, then please DISCARD the in-dwelling of God in men.
Arianism, Apollinarianism, Ebionism, Eutychianism, Nestorianism and many other 'isms' were totally against this absurd doctrine. The Church declared them heresies and declared her own heresy 'the hypostatic union' as correct.
Only the Catholic Church has the divine authority, through the Keys given St Peter by Jesus, to declare what is truth and what is heresy. Get it, Divine Authority. Jesus remains with His Catholic Church, Emanuel, so that now we can proclaim we are 'taught by God".

There is no such thing as fully God and fully man. Cut that rubbish out, please! You can't sell that horse shit to me, dear Paul.

You tell us things, which the son of Mary never said. You have no proof of this junk and stuff, over which men quarreled for three centuries and were shut up ny force.

Instead of telling Muslims what is "wrong" in their Quran, it would be easier to bring a "Duplicate Quran", since you know the source of it. And it is very easy. Just copy stories of Bible, divide it into pieces and just distribute it here and there.
No Chronology, No theme, no grammar, anything would pass.
Why not conjure a single four short verse chapter like Chapter 112, that blows away Trinity, Idol Worship, False gods worship, Son of God and Father of God and every other cobwebs that humans have ever designed to worship any one else, except the True Lord of Universe.
It should be a "piece of cake" for some one like you.
I did not hear any thing from you so far, go have a hand at it. Write something in English first, then get it Translated in Arabic thru "Google Translator"!!
Vow, that would be fine!!
In case you have not understood what I told you before, let me repeat it in other words. If you are 30, 40 50, 60 years old and still believe in Santa Clause, not matter what one says or shows to you, you still remain a retarded person that believe in Santa Clause.


Let us look at 112nd chapter of Quran that excites MUQ so much:

Say, "He is Allah ,[who is] One,
Allah , the Eternal Refuge.
He neither begets nor is born,
Nor is there to Him any equivalent."

Can you explain little MUQ how the piece blows idol worship, trinity, false god worship, son of god and father of god?

Those simplistic words are mere affermation backed up by nothing.

For instance I can say yesterday Mr John Smith was in NY, you may say that yesterday he was in Paris.

Who is right? Anyone can say what he wants. What makes the difference are the evidences to back up those affermations that your god accidently forgot it.

Meantime where is the proof that a god exists? And even if it exists, where is the proof that that god is indeed Allah?

Stupid book for stupid people.

Dr. Barnabas,

http://quran.com/22/52-53

"And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But Allah abolishes that which Satan throws in; then Allah makes precise His verses. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.[That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension."

By this declaration -or, "The devil made me do it!" defense- which Mohammad made to excuse his own screwup with regard to the supposed "daughters of Allah" whose intercession he commended and then revoked, Mohammad saw fit to not only accuse Allah of malicious INCOMPETENCE, but to also smear every other prophet of God who has ever walked the earth, and somehow it doesn't matter to Muslims that this is both libel and blasphemy.

What would "Jesus" of the Gospel of Barnabas think of Mohammad's "The devil made me do it!" defense?

Was Quran revealed in English?

Quran uses the Arabic term "ALAQ" and not English "Clot of Blood".

ALAQ has many sense of meanings. In reality one of the meaning is "some thing which clings" (Like the insects which suck blood), so in the initial stages of pregnancy, the "mingled sperm" is like some thing which clings to the womb.... and this is exactly as we discovered "only recently".

So those who translated ALAQ as "Clot of Blood" made a mistake, it was not the mistake of Arabic Quran. It was not prophet who said "Alaq" means Clot of Blood. Some one translated it, based on the look of fetus in the early stage of pregnancy.

So there is and there was nothing wrong in Quran, when it was revealed 1400 years ago.

If we did not had the original manuscript of Quran or someone had "inserted" his own interpretation of ALAQ, we could have problems as we have in Bible.

Jesus' Two Natures: God and Man
http://carm.org/jesus-two-natures

Jesus is the most important person who has ever lived since he is the savior, God in human flesh. He is not half God and half man. He is fully divine and fully man. In other words, Jesus has two distinct natures: divine and human. Jesus is the Word who was God and was with God and was made flesh,(John 1:1,14). This means that in the single person of Jesus is both a human and divine nature, God and man. The divine nature was not changed when the Word became flesh (John 1:1,14). Instead, the Word was joined with humanity (Col. 2:9). Jesus' divine nature was not altered. Also, Jesus is not merely a man who "had God within Him" nor is he a man who "manifested the God principle." He is God in flesh, second person of the Trinity. "The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word," (Heb. 1:3). Jesus' two natures are not "mixed together," (Eutychianism) nor are they combined into a new God-man nature (Monophysitism). They are separate yet act as a unit in the one person of Jesus. This is called the Hypostatic Union.

The following comparison should help you see the two natures of Jesus "in action":

GOD - MAN

He is worshiped (Matt. 2:2,11; 14:33).
He worshiped the Father (John 17).

He was called God (John 20:28; Heb. 1:8)
He was called man (Mark 15:39; John 19:5).

He was called Son of God (Mark 1:1)
He was called Son of Man (John 9:35-37)

He is prayed to (Acts 7:59).
He prayed to the Father (John 17).

He is sinless (1 Pet. 2:22; Heb. 4:15).
He was tempted (Matt. 4:1).

He knows all things (John 21:17).
He grew in wisdom (Luke 2:52).

He gives eternal life (John 10:28).
He died (Rom. 5:8).

All the fullness of deity dwells in Him (Col. 2:9).
He has a body of flesh and bones (Luke 24:39).

How come if St. Peter was given the keys St Paul became the Key Keeper?

When did St. Peter handed over the Keys to St. Paul?

We do not see St. Peter speaking much in Christian Theology, only St. Paul!!

So you are playing a double role? When it suits you, you say Catholic Church derives authority from St. Peter the Rock on which Church was to be built by Jesus.

And when it comes to theology and teachings, you hide behind St. Paul, the Spokesperson in Chief for Jesus?
