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?”

St Peter in Rome is a statue of a pagan character.

Christians Church people are liars.
They forced my Hindu relatives in India to become Christians so they could study free in Christian schools and convents.
They are now trying it on in Israel to convert Jews to Christianity before Jesus returns but we will not allow the Missionaries to lie to us.

Of course your extremely coherent PROPHET never endorsed any absurd idea. It's his most devout and extremely incoherent followers who have endorsed absurd ideas, like jailing a teacher in Sudan for allowing her students to commit the "blasphemy" of naming a Teddy Bear "Mohammad," for example, or forcing school girls to burn to death in Saudi Arabia because they weren't following the Allah mandated dress code.

Yes, your PROPHET was PERFECT.(No one can deny this fact!) It's his "ignorant fool" followers who are the problem...

God did not mention catholics in the Holy Bible.
Christ laughs at catholics who lie about him every day.
Catholics worship a man as god.
We worship the god who made men like Isaac Abraham and Judah.

Muhammad was a liar and a coward. He did not have any contact with the real god.
Kaaba is pagan and so is the ritual performed by muslims.
Satan has the key to Mecca
Christ called Muhammad a false prophet
Muhammad is suffering in hell for eternity. Allah didn't save him

I suspect that the Islamotards applauded your post, which is odd considering that Mohammad expressed great admiration for Jesus.

Come on please Paul. Try your best. You do know that "john" was made up by a bunch of naive folks who made many errors tryingt to promote a flesh god word of mangod.
Please PROVE to US where Jesus claims he was God.
You know you can't.
Therefore, you are lying.
TRY AGAIN...
You even said the I was not a priest. Now prove to me you know more than me.
You have to respond quoting chapter and verse instead of escaping.
Come on Paul don't let the Church down!
You made a claim that BJ and/or Jesus said to Jews he was God.
Now prove it from your Gospels!
Go on, give us chapter and verse, so our Jewish posters can also respond!(PROOF NEEDED PLEASE)
I you can prove that BJ (let alone Jesus) claimed he was God, then we have no hesitation in saying he was nuts!(PROVE TO US!)
Neither Jesus nor BJ claimed there were GOD.
The Holy Quran has authority over your ramblings.
Your holy books written by 3rd/4th century pagans and non theologians has as much authority over me as do the Harry Potter books.
Your books have to be written many times by many people to make them look believable but they are works of fiction that fail to measure up to even Harry potter books.
Why do you force yourself on Hebrew Abraham, Hebrew Isaac and Half Hebrew Ishmael? What have they got to do with you? WHAT GIVES YOPU MORE RIGHT THEN HEBREW ISHMAEL?LOL..
Did they ever admit that you are linked to them spiritually?(PROOF NEEDED PLEASE)
Did you know allah never spoke to mohammad. mohammad talked to a spirit that a woman told him was gabrial. Don't have much there, hey fellow?

God's Catholic Church is familiar with the history of each book of the Holy Bible. This history can be found as a prologue to each book in many Bibles.
The Catholic Church gave us the Holy Bible; it is her book and she is its the guardian.
The "Problem" is Holy CAtholic Church came into existence in the Fourth Century of CE.

before that it was free for all! So how could the Holy Catholic Church undo which was already done.

They tried their best and muddled things more than they were earlier.

You said "prologue" to each book? Want me to read you for a few of those books?

How dumb you people get, one cannot fathom.

YOU said, "Its all interpretation" so I take it that your sages were INTERPRETING "FICTION" or midrash. Brilliant of them.

Finally, your stories were meant for you to feel good and not to be transformative.

Excellent.

Study what follows and LEARN what halakhah is.

"The root of the Hebrew term used to refer to Jewish LAW, halakhah, means "go" or "walk." Halakhah, then, is the "way" a Jew is DIRECTED to behave in EVERY aspect of life, encompassing civil, criminal, and religious LAW. "

http://www.myjewishlearning.com/practices/Rit...

Remind me of the BS that you spoke.

Read about YOUR FICTION/midrash.

"Midrash is an interpretive act, seeking the answers to religious questions (both practical and theological) by plumbing the meaning of the words of the Torah."

Frijoles, the Judahite---midrash is stories and homilies - much of it acknowledged as FICTION,

My Jewish Learning--"Midrash is an interpretive act, seeking the answers to religious questions (both practical and theological) by plumbing the meaning of the words of the Torah."

Allah spoke direct only to Moses.

With all others, through revelations and visions.

With the biblical Jesus, God never spoke with him.

Do you know why God did not speak to Jesus? You will not give an answer, so I will give the answer.

Jesus made a big mistake by obeying Satan, when he followed Satan for the trip. He should not have committed that great sin. That sin made God angry and that is why God never spoke with him.

And only today you come to know through me, why God did not respond, when Jesus shouted or cried out loud, "My God! My God! Why have you abandoned me?"
