Who Is Allah?

There are 220696 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?”

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?

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.
Delusion multiplies Skeptic Shamma Stones.
You are not doing anything to dispel my "ignorance" by proving to me that you are deluding yourself WITHOUT A SHRED of EVIDENCE!

1a. You say...
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.

1b. I say...
Your "church" was probably founded by the lies of Satan here on earth who invented a son for god for pagans to worship. When the lies are challenged by seekers of truth you call them liars!
God by definition cannot turn up as a peeing pooing human subjecting self to the laws of universe! When god is controlled by the elements "he" ceases to be god!

2a. You say...
Peter an Apostle of Jesus was given the keys to the Church of God by Gods Son Jesus Christ.

2b. I say...
Rubbish! No such keys were given. No proof whatsoever. Jesus was just a teacher struggling to convince the majority of Jews that he was their Messiah. They rejected him and got rid of him!
Jesus on earth could not even save himself. Peter abandoned him and ran away lying many times!
Do you want a liar and a coward for Pope? Oh well. I suppose you have had many of them as Popes!

Peter and Rome is a good story!!
The REAL Peter the PAGAN in Rome is....

The statue of "Peter enthroned" with SUN WHEEL above his head is most certainly a PAGAN statue of JUPITER, that was removed from the Pantheon in Rome (a PAGAN temple), and moved into St. Peter's AND renamed Peter!!!

Do you know that his extended right foot has been nearly worn away from the many pilgrims who KISS it???

Even the pattern on the wall behind the statue utilises the symbol of Baal / Shamash!!!

This is what YOUR Catholic Encyclopaedia online says about Portraits of the Apostles:

The famous bronze statue of St. Peter in the basilica of this Apostle in Rome is by some regarded as a work of the fifth or sixth century, by others as pertaining to the thirteenth.
The latter date is adopted by Kraus and Kaufmann among others; Lowrie, however, maintains that "no statue of the Renaissance can be compared with this for genuine understanding of the classic dress and, therefore, this writer holds for the more ancient date.

The marble statue of St. Peter taken from the old basilica, now in the crypt of the Vatican, was originally, in all probability, an ANCIENT CONSULAR STATUE which was TRANSFORMED (!!...CHANGED? LOL...) into a representation of the Prince of Apostles.

You worship SATANIC lies.
Jesus is just a Jewish man. He is NOT God.
Peter has NO keys!

The lies must be challenged.

How can these be GOD's representatives guided by holy spirit?
These are SATAN'S AGENTS guided by an EVIL SPIRIT.

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?!

1a. You say:

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.

35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said,Do you believe in the Son of Man?

36 Who is he, sir? the man asked.Tell me so that I may believe in him.

Also, have you seen my posts about the Popes who resigned or were forced to resign?

So he is telling them "you will DIE as sinners or good people depending on what you do"

New International Version (NIV)
35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said,Do you believe in the Son of Man?
36 Who is he, sir? the man asked.Tell me so that I may believe in him.
37 Jesus said,You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.
38 Then the man said,Lord, I believe, and he worshiped him.
You are filled with spiritual blindness Alex.
You have changed verse 38 Shamma. verse 38 dose not say worshiped !(38 Then the man said,Lord, I believe, and he worshiped him.)
This is what it really says :
38 Then he said:I do put faith [in him], Lord. And he did obeisance to him.

Some other instances where the Septuagint uses proskuneo to refer to bowing down as a mark of respect are:

Genesis 33:3: Jacob bowed to his brother Esau

Exodus 18:7: Moses bowed to his father-in-law

Ruth 2:10: Ruth bowed to Boaz

1 Samuel 20:41: David bowed to Jonathan

1 Samuel 24:8: David bowed to King Saul

1 Samuel 25:3: Abigail bowed to David

Daniel 2:46: Nebuchadnezzar bowed to Daniel

These, and many other, occurrences of the verb proskuneo in the Septuagint help us to understand two points:

1. In a variety of cultures in Bible times it was customary to bow down before someone as a gesture of respect, with absolutely no religious meaning at all.

2. The verb proskuneo is frequently used to describe such actions.

I see ralations are going great;P|

Benedict claimed to have developed some theology to better (reconciliation may not be used given the meaning the RCC gives to it) relations with the jews in particular. And humanism.

Let's see:
http://www.vatican.va/archive/hist_councils/i ...

And contradicted oft.

Great relations with the muslims...the offer their deserts to receive all the dead at judgement day.

Hmm i first thought it was a typo.
Given this folktale: Heaven and hell are the same, in both people get very long spoons. But in heaven they feed each other and in hell they don't.

Nah, it's going to be just deserts.

But a new theology as claimed by the panzer-pope?
I also read the letter 2005.

the Shoah, which was inspired by a neo-pagan racist ideology, worked courageously to foster reconciliation and improved understanding between Christians and Jews.

In laying the foundations for a renewed relationship between the Jewish People and the Church, Nostra Aetate stressed the need to overcome past prejudices, misunderstandings, indifference, and the language of contempt and hostility. The Declaration has been the occasion of greater mutual understanding and respect, cooperation and, often, friendship between Catholics and Jews. It has also challenged them to recognize their shared spiritual roots and to appreciate their rich heritage of faith in the One God, maker of heaven and earth, who established his covenant with the Chosen People, revealed his commandments and taught hope in those messianic promises which give confidence and comfort in the struggles of life.

Christians and Jews will offer an ever more compelling shared witness to the One God and his commandments, the sanctity of life, the promotion of human dignity, the rights of the family and the need to build a world of justice, reconciliation and peace for future generations.

If you read nostre aetate you find respect for all ways of life.
Well tel that to gay people on whom all the evil of the world was heaped this year. Include feminism and the denial of womans sexual health rights (the right to say no agaist unwanted sex is denied, the condom issue) etc.

Yes! You are truthful.
I agree with your post that Muslims are violent and evil people.

But! You replied to the wrong post.
I am not a Muslim.
You need to ripost your post to Muslims.

Gods truth cannot be contradicted.
Alex, The words dictated by Muhammad in the Muslim book the Quran contradict Gods Truthful words in Gods Holy Bible, written by the disciples that Jesus, the Son of God taught to them Himself.
Alex, nowhere in Gods Holy Bible is there a statement by God stating that -I God have no Son.
The information you call truth does not come out of Gods Holy Bible, so your information are falsehoods.
It is quite funny when your god's truth is rejected by the very people to whom Jesus came....the followers of Judaism!

You haven't answered my questions.
Your "belief" and "opinions" don't mean anything...

You like to believe that a Jewish man died for your sins when he himself said he came only for his own people who were Jews.
You have put your shirt on BJ who is NOT God!

Look at your "John" which appeared long after the synoptic gospels.

1a. You say...
Jesus Himself stated:
John 8:24
New International Version (1984)
I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am [the one I claim to be], you will indeed die in your sins."
1b. I say...
I agree! He is talking to HUMANS and he is NOT stupid. He knows ALL humans DIE!
So he is telling them "you will DIE as sinners or good people depending on what you do"
He also meant to say: "I tell you that you would die with a lot less sins; if you believe that I am your Messiah, you will indeed stand a chance of dying with a lot less sins."
2a. You say..Jesus claimed that he is the Son of God.
John 9:35-38
New International Version (NIV)
35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said,Do you believe in the Son of Man?
36 Who is he, sir? the man asked.Tell me so that I may believe in him.
37 Jesus said,You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.
38 Then the man said,Lord, I believe, and he worshiped him.
You are filled with spiritual blindness Alex.
2b. I say.. John was written long after other gospels were formulated. The agenda here is to promote.."son of god" or even god!
To most "son of man"...Ben Adam refers to human being! There are no upper case "S" or upper case "M" in Aramaic Arabic or Hebrew.
Heve you seen a human being. YES!
Jesus is NOT saying he is son of god as clearly they have been deliberately playing with son of man, messiah and son of god!!
Messiah is not son of god per se.
Jews had many "sons of god", just meaning powerful humans and also "children of god" !

In ugaritic the story of Moses asking who shall I say... Just say I AM...get's the meaning : bow down.
