Who Is Allah?

There are 254914 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?”

<quoted text>You are mixing politics with spirituality. Such seems to be a mistake made by many who try to hold a monopoly on religion to control others. The scripture informs us "that without faith, it is impossible to please God." That being so, I assume it is your faith that validates the catholic church over the protestant church, right? I say that, because you were not around to see Peter give anyone any set of keys to do anything. Once again, you are inserting politics into religion. The only reason Catholics had a problem with King James, is because he took power from the Catholic church, via translating the word of God from Latin into English. I Guess that is what the catholic church refers to as heracy ?
When Jesus returns, do you think he will approve of your huge megaplexes called churches, and would he approve of the huge money maker that the church has become ? Would he approve of your using of politics to minipulate God's people ? Was it not Jesus who whipped the money changers out of the temples? When did religion turn into big business ? There is no one true church, just one true God. Those who love God and submit to him, are his beloved. anything else is politics, and I'm disgusted with political teachers.
Jesus established the Catholic Church and it is only in the Catholic Church that we have continuity between today’s leaders and the Apostles; this continuity is called Apostolic Succession through the laying on of hands from the present bishops to the Apostles. By the laying on of hands the Holy Spirit imparts a special grace on the recipient; giving the recipient a greater share in the life of God through grace.

King James had no authority from God to translate the Holy Bible into English or any other language. As can be seen from the many denominations of Christians the Catholic Church was right in knowing people would misunderstand the Holy Bible by interpreting it with a carnal mind and not the mind of God.

The temples of Jerusalem were richly furnished because they were the house of God as are the Catholic Churches are now. Catholics give but a small portion of their wealth to build fitting places for the tabernacles of the Lord to reside throughout the world. Jesus is now present physically in every Catholic Church tabernacle throughout the world.

muslims have built a large monument to a few black stones and muslims spend billions of dollars traveling across the world to gaze upon them; for what?

Dear Paul,
Have mercy on your own soul!
Paul, according to Shamma's post, wants everyone to suffer. Jesus does not.
Not only the Catholic Church is blind but you are also are really blind.
Jesus set the example and we make up in our flesh what was lacking in the suffering of Christ for His Body the Church.

Suffering comes to everyone, the just and the wicked, but the just can gain grace through their suffering by offering it up for the conversion of sinners. Why would Jesus support fasting if it had no spiritual value?

I am glad that you took the cue from my post.
But, but, but, Jesus never said, "God is the Holy Spirit". Please keep this Holy Spirit of yours, far, far away from God Almighty. Thanks
"No one can say 'Jesus is Lord' except by the Holy Spirit."1 "God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying,'Abba! Father!"'2 This knowledge of faith is possible only in the Holy Spirit: to be in touch with Christ, we must first have been touched by the Holy Spirit. He comes to meet us and kindles faith in us. By virtue of our Baptism, the first sacrament of the faith, the Holy Spirit in the Church communicates to us, intimately and personally, the life that originates in the Father and is offered to us in the Son.

You worship an unknown pagan god BMZ.

God, the creator of the world revealed Himself to us through His Son Jesus Christ.

And who was Jesus centred on?
1. Yes!
2.The men talking are inspired by the Spirit of Jesus,
3. Jesus is centered on spiritually preparing His believers in Him to accept the trials in life for His sake, so that we can have life eternally in the family of God.

I have never boasted that way. I boast this way:

There is one and only one God almighty, the LORD, whom we call Allah in Arabic.

That God is one, is Christianity's boast and it is used to show the absurd "Oneness" of God.

You should actually boast this way for your Christian God: "God is oneness"

We have told you that we worship only Allah, the LORD Almighty God. Muslims consider Moses, Jesus and Muhammad as obedient SLAVES of Allah, the LORD Almighty God.

Muhammad is not God, ignorant fool! Who told you that? Must be the Christian evangelists, another bunch of clueless fools!

We do not have any Man God, Mother God or Father God or Ghost God. We do not believe in that stuff.

So, who was that God, who revealed himself to Noah, Abraham, Jacob and Moses?

Please don't tell me it was your triune God!

The one true God is the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. He is the Creator of all things visible and invisible. Why do you skip Isaac? You cannot get to Jacob without Isaac! Isaac is the child of the promise.

Shamma,

If this so-called Spirit of Jesus or the Holy Spirit had existed and had guided people well, there would have been no triune God and no Christianity.

Those men were fighting at the Church Forum, which had gone crazy during 3rd to the 6th Century.

Can you stop writing His, Him and He for Jesus, please? He is not God.

Mental Blockhead,

What I note is that you are as arrogantly presumptuous as anyone that I have ever encountered online, even more than JOEL, who at least had the benefit of his informative "visions." You ONLY have a preference, one that was no doubt drilled into your thick skull by your parents, because it is clear that independent thought is NOT your strong suit.

Zayd ibn Thabit said,
"I was his neighbor" (Tirmizi), "I used to write down the revelations as they came down to the Prophet. He would dictate and I would write. When I had finished writing, he would say 'Read', so I would read it back to him. If there was an error, he corrected it." (al-Tabarani)

al-Bara ibn Azib said,
"There was once revealed a verse. The Prophet said,'Get Zayd here and have him bring al-lauh, al-dawat and al-katif'. When Zayd ibn Thabit came, the Prophet said 'Write'" (Bukhari)

Zayd ibn Thabit was also one of the scribes appointed by Uthman

i see here Quran can be easily traced back to the source (Muhammad)
compared with the unidentified authors of gospels,

Irenaeus narrated from > Papias who heard it from > the presbyteroi > who claimed to have met > the apostles who have met > Jesus

the unidentified/imaginary "presbyters" are the missing links

No, he is not. That Jesus is God is Satanic and this lie was spread by Satan.

This denies your false belief:

"Jesus said to him,“Away from me, Satan! For it is written:‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’[e]”

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him."

If Jesus had told "Him" (Satan) that he was God or the son of God, then "He" (Satan) would not have left him.

So, please worship the LORD your God. And if you keep on worshipping Jesus, Satan will not leave you and the Church, as long as you do that.

Once you have Abraham, all are covered. You do not need the absurd Genealogies by Matthew and Luke, who did not know their own grandfathers' names.

Ok, I will make it easier on you. We believe in the LORD God Almighty of Noah and Abraham. This covers all.

Ishaq (Issac) has also a place in our heart. He is mentioned in Qur'aan.

God granting babies to old and barren ladies is more factual. You should call the ladies as the Women of Promise. God gave one to old Zacchy and his old barren wife. So, Zacchy and his wife were the Couple of Promise.

What went wrong with the "children of promise" of the so-called "child of the promise"?

Bye now.

That is not the problem between Christians and Muslims.
Everyone has a right to worship God in their own manner of ways.

The problem is that Muhammad took his god that he called Allah and formed a religious government, and became a dictator in claiming all nations of the earth are to be under the rule of Muhammad's god Allah, under his newly formed religious government.

The other problem is, while the Church corrected its error of being a religious government, and abandoned its political ambitions of wanting to rule the nations of the earth, Muslims wrongly continue to express Muhammad's government religion as being Gods ruler on earth.

The error of the Church's political ambition of the past was an abomination to God, and so it is Muhammad's Muslim followers are an abomination to God in today's world.

We Called to love one another
It was the scene of the last supper. As the Lord Jesus finished telling His disciples that He would soon return to his Father, He gave them a new command:“Love one another, as I have loved you,
so you must love one another.” Then He added,“By this all men will know that you are my disciples”(John 13:34-35).

Notice that the Lord does not give them “a new suggestion” or “a good idea.” It is a command, not an option. But what is new about it?
Earlier, the Israelites had been given a clear command from God to “love your neighbours”(Leviticus 19:18).

But the Lord’s command to His disciples involves a new standard: not “love your neighbours as yourself,” but “love as I have loved you.”

Just imagine. Our new model is the love of Christ Himself!
The Lord presents this quality of love as a test before “all men” as to whether or not we are all Gods Children.

Raping, robbing, and murdering one another in the name of God is an abomination in the eyes of God.
