Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 Full story: The Brussels Journal 215,462

“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?”

"Answer my questions and be bold:
"So, who were those people, who crucified him and did not know what they were doing?
Spit it out, please!"
Isaiah 53:5:
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

There is not a limitation here. If you are a sinner, you belong in that group of "our," every one of us.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all (Isaiah 53:6).

When you look to the question who crucified Jesus? Well, I did. Every one of my sins cried out,'Crucify Him!' Without Jesus, there is no forgiveness. There is no hope for me. With Him, there is. But I have got to recognize and I have to own that every one of my sins is responsible for the Crucifixion. I can't lay the blame on Pilate. I can't lay the blame on the Sanhedrin. I have got to own it. That's what it is all about when we come to the Cross is acknowledgment that it is our sin that put Jesus there. It was His love that drove Him to do that. He didn't have to do it. He could have escaped it. He could have said,'I am not going to do this. I am not going to sacrifice Myself.' His love compelled Him; my sins made Him. It is me and you and every one else. who is responsible.

Marriage - an artificial institution?
That's the conclusion of my narrative which means that marriage has no causal mechanism supporting or favoring it nor does marriage confer any psychological, vital, emotional, physical or evolutionary advantage on the partners to the act. It's just a human convention and not a law of matter, emotion, or mind.
I use the term "artificial" in this sense.
Those ten points simply brought out the horrors and hypocrisy of marriage.
One can live in with a partner without being married - neither a mumbo jumbo religious nor a hollow civil ceremony.
Loyalty or fidelity depends on one's nature and if one sticks to just one partner throughout in marriage/live-in relationships then one's force fields remain relatively more stable than if one goes through multiple affairs/relationships that damage the balance of one's force fields since intimacy always results in concentrated exchange of forces and sex involves the greatest intimacy and the most intense exchange of physical, vital, emotional and mental energies.
So, to protect one's force fields, it is always better to remain loyal to one partner or at the most have no more than 2 or 3 relationships in a lifetime but the former condition of monogamy is better provided one has marked monogamous instincts.
You clarified that you used words out of the context.

Yes, marriage is pretty much an useless institution.

All problems of existence are essentially problems that arise due to a lack of harmony among the planes and parts of nature and being.

If harmony prevails among the planes and parts of nature and being then existence would manifest perfect harmony and this superior poise would obliterate disease, death, natural calamity, misery, wars, hatred, bigotry and other negatives that're manifestations of disharmony.

A closed physical system moves towards disorder. A sentient system can oscillate between order and disorder and enter into a state of perfect harmony if a superior principle of consciousness/intelligence can be infused into the disordered arrangement. In such a case, the entropy or state of increasing disorder of the physical system is nullified and the resulting harmonious physical system that's supported by an innate principle of a superior unifying grade of intelligence can go through cycles of manifestation, dissolution and non-manifestation.

Zero is the unified state of existence in which the additive inverses of numbers or in general where the opposite aspects of existence are unified.
JOEL

#164360 Feb 19, 2013
The state of existence prior to zero is indefinable in symbolic terms as it represents the thatness of the unmanifest state of existence in which consciousness and energy are so completely unified or undifferentiated that nothing can be said about this rarefied poise except that it is THAT.

I have read notes and articles by the self-loathing sinners of Christianity, but this self-loathing post of yours is far superior to that of St. Paul, the master of all self-loathing sinners and liars.

Since you killed Jesus, I want you to go and get nailed to a post.

By the way, who had asked him to get killed? Was it the Father or the Church?

I don't see the Father saying anywhere, "Here is my son with whom I am pleased and whom I want killed on a cross."

Lies upon lies and nothing but lies.

Christians are nailed to the cross with Jesus through their daily trials. Those Christians persecuted by muslims are all nailed to the cross with Jesus for the sins of muslims and their conversion.

Christians make up in their flesh what was lacking in the sufferings of Christ for His Body the Church. When you martyr a Christian for Christ sake you only build up the Body of Christ and further the conversion of muslims to Christ.

The Romans thought they could stamp out Christianity, but through the blood of the martyrs the god's of Roman came to naught and Christ was lifted up!

We are nailed to the cross every day with our Lord, and will remain so until He calls us home to Himself in heaven. As we hang on the cross with our Lord and God we will say: "Father forgive them they know not what they do!" We pray from the cross for the conversion of muslims.

They will never stop. After that they will insult God by saying the man was God.
