Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story 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?”

EVOLUTION OF MATTER OR OF CONSCIOUSNESS?

Evolution means the successive emergences in matter of the involved grades of consciousness with each gradation engineering its unique material form. To imagine that sentience emerged from insentient chemicals and that life-forms of superior information content evolved from life-forms of inferior information content is outrageously paradoxical and a shocking assault on the human intelligence.

Normally, the Pope does not get anything but death. That is his reward and he goes back home to reside with his Lord.
A few resigned and a few were deposed but received nothing.
If the Pope knows FOR SURE he goes back "home" to reside with his Lord after his "death" why does he go around in BULLET PROOF Popemobiles??? Surely he ought to make sure he goes as soon as possbile to sit on the right hand side of the right hand?

(I thought Popes conquered death & grabbed eternal life by accepting BJ's willing & "unconditional" sacrifice!)...

EVOLUTION is an act of VOLITION of the inherent consciousness in a system as it emerges from a state of involution with the materialization of its concomitant energy content.

The words "pure" and "impure" as applied to sentient entities are misnomers since being is a mixture of many states or gradations of existence. The parts and planes of a sentient entity can exist in either of the two states - "balance" or "imbalance".

PERFECT BALANCE among the various parts and planes of being means perfect immunity from wear and tear and decomposition with the result being physical immortality. The stupendous feat of attaining to a state of perfect balance cannot be executed via the ordinary consciousness.

MONEY is not a hollow convention; it carries with it a universal consciousness-force (of garnering material resources) that manifests in those who can efficiently galvanize their faculties and adjust these with the environment to yield the best results (within their innate capacity) in terms of material or financial gains. Dishonest means of earning money involve perverse universal mechanisms at work.

EXALTED HUMAN ACTIVITY involves making serious, passionate and sustained attempts at moving into the next plane of consciousness and manifesting that in matter to refine its workings. Oh! enough of unregenerate matter and enough of moving in mindless circles around the same set of puerile and evanescent material goals.

SUPERIOR GENES result in great physical beauty, ease in earning money, sound health, respect for life and nature, recognition of the law of unity in variety, mental sharpness, stable emotions, refined taste, healthy habits and capacity for mysticism.

Explain PRECISELY how YOU expect to have eternal life by believing in BJ's "sacrifice" while us "sinners" who don't believe in YOUR Church and in BJ's "sacrifice" would "die"!

Those who believe in Jesus shall have eternal life. When you are baptized you become a new creation in Christ, you are born again of the water and the Spirit, you become partakers in the life of God through grace, you become adopted children of God, and heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.

You who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit shall be cast into the lake of fire, the second death!

This is VERY interesting!

I used to sell this idea but NEVER charged for it

BUT..your God's Pope GREGORY VI (1045-46) filled with holy Spirit was DEPOSED by Henry III FOR SIMONY (SELLING CHURCH PARDONS AND OFFICES)!!

You Holy Church had Pagan leaning thanks to Holy Ghost filled Pope Marcellinus (296-304) who abdicated or was deposed after complying with Roman Emperor Diocletian's order to OFFER SACRIFICE to PAGAN GODS!!!! Did the Satanic H/Ghost give him the "right" advice?!

You are making some weird claims Paul WV.
I asked for PROOF but you are unable to provide ANY besides talking about BVM who gave birth to Jesus.
She should have a special place as the woman who obeyed GOD and carried the Child.

I asked you to explain PRECISELY how YOU expected to have eternal life by believing in BJ's "sacrifice" while us "sinners" who don't beli eve in YOUR Church and in BJ's "sacrifice" would "die"!

Surely Paul what you say here is based on BLIND FAITH without an ounce of Proof!

1a. You say:
- Those who believe in Jesus shall have eternal life.

1b. I say:
- There are many who are suppposed to believe in your Jesus including many Popes but there is NO proof whatsoever that they have eternal life!
THIS IS BLIND FAITH.

2a. You say:
-When you are baptized you become a new creation in Christ, you are born again of the water and the Spirit, you become partakers in the life of God through grace, you become adopted children of God, and heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.

2b. I say:

- "a new creation in Christ"? What happens? This is again BLIND FAITH.

- "born again"? What on earth is that supposed to mean. Any person can claim this!! There is NO proof yet again!

- "Heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven"?
Not a single person can vouch for this!!
This is BLIND FAITH with NO proof whatsoever.

3a. You say:
-You who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit shall be cast into the lake of fire, the second death!

3b. I say:
- You who blaspheme against GOD shall be cast into that lake of fire.
You HAVE to be ALIVE in that fire to feel ALL the PAIN for lying about God and for worshipping NAKED PAGAN SATAN WHO IS BLEEDING FROM A POLE BEGGING YOU TO EAT HIS FLESH AND DRINK HIS FRESH BLOOD.

YOU ARE THE BLASPHEMER FOR WORSHIPPING A MAN AS YOUR GOD.

You are ignorant Alex!
The Holy Catholic Church was Founded by the truth of God here on earth by Gods Son Jesus Christ, is attacked every day and every hour by Satan, and Satan's helpers, including Muslims who reject Gods Son Jesus Christ.
Peter an Apostle of Jesus was given the keys to the Church of God by Gods Son Jesus Christ.

International Standard Version (2012)
"I tell you that you are Peter, and it is on this rock that I will build my congregation, and the powers of hell will not conquer it".

So your attacking the Catholic Church in trying to discredit the truth of God is nothing new Alex.

God Himself is the protector of the Holy Catholic Church.

Let's see, you are a slave to an uneducated 7th century war lord and you are lecturing me on "BLIND FAITH with NO proof watsoever." One thing is for sure and that is you are self deluded along with all muslim leaders.
