Who Is Allah?

There are 254910 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?”

It realy makes me wonder how that negotion went!
The Quran is a mixture of truth and falsehoods, the contents is not inspired by God.
So it becomes evident that Muslims are confused as to what is truth and what is false.

Their confusion has caused them to block out spiritual truth, their lack of it causes them to commit evil deeds in the name of God.

The inspired word of God, the Holy Bible was given by God to bring those that seek God to the truth of God.

It is apparent you lack understanding, and become offended by your own ignorance.

Aetate was meant to bring non-Christians to a dialogue with the Church.
But is was not brought before the council.

And it appears you are offended when you lack understanding.

Why the hell not? I have a Muslim fan base, you know, the people who worship Mohammad while denying that he is (or rather, was) Allah's partner on earth, and judging me is ALL that they do, "for Allah and His Most Holy Messenger Mohammad PBUH!!@!!!!!!"

Hmmm...Mohammad never explicitly claimed infallibility in his Holy Screeed, the Qur'an, did he?

No matter. His slaves interpret him accordingly...

PERFECTION:

Perfection means manifesting the whole of the absolute in the manifestation and that would involve complete mastery over the whole universe and beyond to its underlying mechanisms. It progresses in stages as each emergence brings in newer and higher faculties, phenomena and laws.

Yes, the world is imperfect till now as the evolution of the terrestrial consciousness has not been able to progress faster and arrive at a stage where the more harmonious ranges of consciousness and their concomitant energies can manifest and radically alter the material and human conditions - though, of course, there has been some progress in the material and human conditions over the ages due to minuscule emergences in the earth nature but it is far from satisfactory.

Altering the terrestrial and human condition can be done on the individual, collective and material scales. I have seen it happening in a few advanced individuals who're great yogis and have experienced a bit of this radical change in the planes and parts of my own being and in my immediate surroundings since when the higher force stations itself in the being of an individual it radiates outward and affects one's immediate surroundings as well.

To bring in the degree of perfection I speak of involving the complete supramentalization of nature, most of the human population will have to disappear as they're not fit enough in being, outlook or reflexes to endure the tremendous power of the manifest supramental principle.

Anyway, I am no longer involved in the radical supramental yoga due to unbearable suffering involving the worst kind of attacks on a continuous basis. This supramental yoga has entered the earth consciousness for the first time in the whole of the earth's history since say 50 to 60 years that it has now been in covert operation up to a certain degree but the difficulties are toooooo great and require a more than Herculean effort on the part of the pioneers of this unique yoga to push forward the supramental emergence in the earth consciousness.

Before the scope, outcome and faculties of the supramental yoga, religions, the old religious teachings, the prophets of their past, the rituals, the sciences of the past and present pale into almost nothing as there is no comparison between them in any way. The two are as different as chalk is to cheese.

2. Its moot because whatever I say you are going to argue - which is why I choose NOT to bother to respond to you. If you recollect, I told you earlier that I was responding to you in good faith that you would be interested in the topic. I was not interested in the latest version of Hughbe arguing against the world
Have a nice career here.
Dont bother to respond
Frijoles---Dont bother to respond

HughBe--- dear, I have long passed the days when I take instructions from others.

Once again.

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.(or what YOU call fiction)

"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."

Chalk and Cheese: A comparison of England and Scotland’s emerging approaches to regeneration

Abstract

To suggest that the Department for Communities and Local Government’s (DCLG’s) publication Regeneration to Enable Growth: What Government Is Doing in Support of Community-Led Regeneration,1 issued in early 2011, was a disappointment to many is something of an understatement. Consequently, the House of Commons Communities and Local Government (CLG) Select Committee’s verdict on the Coalition Government’s regeneration strategy for England was keenly awaited by commentators and practitioners alike. Regeneration, the CLG Select Committee’s report published on 3 November 2011, certainly did not pull any punches, focusing in particular on the Government’s ‘different approach’ to regeneration and its likely effectiveness.

This article reviews the current condition of regeneration policy in England – set against the views of the Select Committee and those submitting evidence to it and the Government’s response to its findings, and in comparison with the Scottish Government’s new regeneration strategy, set out in Achieving a Sustainable Future3 – and considers whether it is fit for purpose.

The Catholic Church does not require anyone to tug their 'Little Bibles' under their arms. You've been misinformed if you've believe that. Protestants have elevated the bible to a place it does not belong with the heresy Sola Scriptura. With a proper understanding of the Holy Bible, muslim arguements against it are all moot.

2. islam is based on the koran as if it was given by God, but in reality it is the word of an uneducated 7th century war lord who said some spirit gave him a message from something called allah. The original dictation is lost and contained satanic verses. This book can not be from God.

2.

And we are suppose to take the word of an uneducated 7th century war lord who never talked to God but some spirit? No thank you. muslims claim the Gospels can't be believed because they were written a few years after Jesus Ascended into heaven and yet they believe in a book written over 600 years after Jesus by someone that never even talked to God, but to some spirit.
Ans.

1. Have you seen any priest or preacher that does not have his "little Bible" tugged under his / her arms? I have never seen any priest or preacher quoting from Bible with his memory, except for some "well known passages".

2. Quran is God's revelation, because it challenges the whole wolrd to bring another book like it and no one has come forward so far.

3. Allah is the same Semitic name for God which Jesus called as Eli, Eli and which is El in Hebrew. They sound like same.

4. I have no problem in believing the words of gospels, provided we know who wrote and edited them and the person says that he heard Jesus say like this and this.

At present these Gospels are like anonymous books which no one really knows who wrote them.

Would just your "belief" turn them into word of God?
