Who Is Allah?

There are 20 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?”

Paul and John of Patmos (not the apostle John) thought they were communicating with the ghost of Jesus
but it was the master of disguise himself, Lucifer the "shining one", who taught them that "Jesus died for our sins" (to Paul) and that "Jesus is God!" (to John)
Lucifer gave himself away when he told John: "I AM the bright morning star" mwahaha
But "John" was pretty clueless after years of Pot smoking!

It is obvious these poor folks are worshipping SATAN.

The one-eyed naked pagan who is oozing from a pole begging folks to eat his raw flesh and drink his fresh blood can only be a scary vile Satan! This is NOT Jesus.

Just look at Vatican....it is supposed to represent a homeless fugitive in rags called Jesus!

How do they do that...living in huge palaces, carrying golden and ornate crosses, wearing expensive garments, sitting on fine thrones, drinking fine wines, having sumptious meals, using corrupt banks, encouraging bum loving priests...... and more!

Poor Jesus worshipped God and told his Jewish brothers to do the same, AND THE JEWS ARE WORSHIPPING GOD!!

But the clueless pagan gentiles worship Jesus!!!!

All through ignorance, stupidity and superstitions.

That's right clueless skeptic! All people have a language!
One version of the Bible is enough in English ok?
Then why Oh why do you need to come up with so many Versions of your "holy" bible JUST in English? LOL....
No, Alex you don't get.
The Church has copies of the originals, and the church is custodian of both the oral teachings and the written teachings handed down by the Apostles.

The Church knows what is authentic Scripture because it also has the oral teachings of the Apostles as taught to them by Jesus.
So the Church can verify what is authentic or false.

The translations of the Bible into English by other sources comes under the right of freedom.

The minor difference of wording does not change the true message of the Gospels.
In all societies at all times people have different views.

Even thou the Quran is written in Arabic, not all Muslims agree on every letter of the Quran.
In the original Quran the wording is Allah is the best deceiver, in the newer versions the wording is changed to read Allah is the best planner.
So you see Alex you are making noise over a non issue.

Hello clueless fool.
If you understood Arabic AND if you managed to read the HOLY BIBLE in Arabic then you will know what I am talking about!
Some Priests have to do a lot of work in different languages although Jesus was clueless about those languages because he was operating with limited language skills in his tribal village!!!!
Now let me repeat it so even you can understand it..lol...
You said Allah was Muhammed's alter ego.
Which means Allah= Muhammed's alter ego.
If so....
The Arabic Holy Bible Genesis says "Mohammed's alter ego" made heavens and earth; and
"Mohammeds alter ego" loved the world enough to give BJ for them to eat up!!!"!!
Yes, you are a clueless joker!
Makes no sense again, allah is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but the alter ego of mohammad.

Judaism does not agree with anything of your New Testament. It does not even recognize your Jesus.
So, please do not cling on to Judaism. Judaism does not believe in the absurd Triune God of Christianity.
rabbee: oh yes! it does. even when there are about 7billion misinterpeting or misunderstanding it. i can assure you, there is a much more closer relationship than you think.

and as for the other, oh yes! it does too: "(and G-D said, "let US make Adam in OUR IMAGE, after OUR LIKENESS, they shall rule over the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, and over the animal, the whole
earth, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. so G-D created Adam in HIS IMAGE, in The Image of G-D HE created HIM; male and female HE created them.G-D blessed them, and G
-D said to them, "be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it: and rule over the fish in the sea, the bird of the sky, and every living thing that moves on the earth. ")"

even if there are 7billion misintrepeting or misunderstanding it.

If there is God, there can only be ONE God.
If Allah is God of Ishmael then Allah WILL be God of Israel!!
Naturally a Jew will want to own God and you can see that from his books. But God hopefully will forgive him because he still believes in ONE true God.
What a Christian thinks is an insult to God and totally against God. To turn God into a pooing peeing man is not what God is about!
A Muslim believes in ONE God who is not a man.
It is not up to Jew Muslim Christian or others to own God!
God will decide.
At the end of the day the name of God should fit the NATURE of God.
Therfore, if we BELIEVE that we worship only ONE God then we all must be worshipping THE SAME GOD.
Simple!
No. Alex.
Muslims worship a different God.
For God gave the law-Thou shall not kill.
Muslims Kill innocent people.

"God no where in the Holy Bible said to Moses or any prophet,
Kill those people that worship me in error".

God recognizes that thou they worship God in error, they are not violating Gods law-Thou shall not kill.

So God does not give permission to kill them.

Do Muslims understand that?
No, they don't.
Muhammad on his death bed said for Muslims to kill Jews and Christians.
For there will only be one religion in Islam.

All Muslims are Muhammadan's they worship the words spoken by Muhammad.
And sin against God.

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 414:

Narrated Urwa:

Aisha said,The Prophet in his fatal illness said,Allah cursed the Jews and the Christians because they took the graves of their Prophets as places for praying. Aisha added,Had it not been for that the grave of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) would have been made prominent but I am afraid it might be taken (as a) place for praying.
__________
Mohammad's Allah was always cursing people for doing things that Mohammad didn't like. Strange, that.

And to have that same reply on authomatic repeat makes however the point that religion is still salient business in the U.S.A.

Leading up to salience in the psychological definition if you ask me.

But neither is the christina trinity.
Staking a claim does not mean it fits the hebrew books.
Ask why so much effort has been done is hstory (be it as written in the hadith or in church and actual history) to kill any vestige of jewish thought and writing...even the very people.

Both christianity and islam are replacement religions,but with the main intent of creating worldly rule over all.
So both have verses that point in this direction of universality unlike the Torah.

Constantine did Christianity no favors, but at least Rome is no longer burning heretics at the stake. Modern Muslims prefer public beheadings. I mean, car bombs are so damned messy.

Are you the roman empire or the church.
I'm very democratic in my criticism.
Otherwise i would not have a thread dedicated to each.

And though this is for me the judaism forum, there is not much to analyse.(Discounting obvious misrepresentations that just need to be corrected) Occasionally and rarely a thread is started that cuts more wood.

But the point is that no law in torah states that you are not allowed to be critical, even verging on atheism. The more interpretations the better.

No girls get beheaded for poetry nor anyone burned at the stake.
