Who Is Allah?

There are 253975 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?”

Read my post Alec:
Claims Equality with God
Jesus puts Himself on the same level as God by directly associating Himself with the Father. This is demonstrated by claiming that He is due the same honor as the Father:“that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him”(John 5:23). Jesus even makes it clear that you cannot honor the Father unless you honor the Son. When Jesus comforts His disciples about His leaving, He tells them “If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” The inference is obvious; to know Jesus is to know God. Jesus even claims that all that belongs to God belongs to Him. Jesus tells His disciples “All that belongs to the Father is mine”(John 16:15).
Since no mere prophet would make these claims of Divinity, and since God would certainly not authenticated a message from a false prophet, the only explanation is that Jesus is God.
Direct References to Deity
In addition to the indirect claims of Deity, on a number of occasions Jesus directly claimed to be God. There is a clear example of this in John 8:58. In this instance, the Jews accused Jesus of being demon possessed for claiming that whoever keeps His commands “will never see death”(John 8:51). When the Jews mocked Him for claiming to be greater than Abraham, Jesus replied “‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered,‘before Abraham was born, I am!’” This was a direct claim to Divinity. This was a reference to the Old Testament when Moses asked God His name. God responded with “‘I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites:“‘I AM has sent me to you’”(Ex. 3:14). So here Jesus is ascribing the very name of God to Himself. The Jews clearly understood exactly what Jesus was saying which is why “they picked up stones to stone him”(John 8:59).
This was not an isolated incident. Again in John 10:30 Jesus claims to be God when He told the Jews “I and the Father are one.” And again the implication was clear to the Jews who responded to Jesus’ statement by again trying to stone Him “for blasphemy,” they explained their attempt to stone Him by telling Him:“because you, a mere man, claim to be God”(John 10:33).
In yet another incident, the Jews persecuted Jesus for healing on the Sabbath. He told them “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working”(John 5:17). The Jews took this is a direct claim to be God. John records their response:“For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God”(John 5:18).
So we see that Jesus directly claimed to be God. His claims were not veiled in mystery, but open and clearly understood by those He addressed.
And here is the MasterBlaster, the Great Killer of all those silly and absurd claims made by ignorant fools. Read it and see how Jesus declares (not claims) that he is a LOWLY SERVANT OR SLAVE sent by God, the MOST HIGH.

The Master Blaster: "John 17:3 New International Version (NIV

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. "

John 17:3 destroys and pulverizes all false claims made by the Church fathers, who were minions of Satan.

All lies dismissed! Case closed!

Instead of wasting your time arguing in a going nowhere debate, especially when the other side don't even have correct understanding of the religion of Islam. Hey, did you know that it means "peace" in arabic? or that there are a lot of facts from both the Quran and the ways of the prophet, peace be upon him, that have been proven with science? Religion is such a mess to get in to, so how bout we don't get into it.

A chapter from the Quran is translated as this:

Say: Oh you who disbelieve!
I worship not that which you worship.
Now will you worship whom I worship.
And I shall not worship that which you are worshiping.
Nor will you worship that which i worship.
To you be your religion, to me be mine.

Isn't that some nice piece of advice?
You follow what you follow and I'll follow what I follow. We are all people, and we will always have differences. So lets put the big ones (religion, politics, etc)aside and shake hands.

But alas, the logic of man is to be bull headed when it comes to someone being different than you.

So, all can see that you are unteachable because lies have become Petra and truth for you.
"An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" was given the LORD Almighty. It is not just Muslims' belief. That law civilized the world.
Jesus himself did not believe in turning the other cheek. When he was slapped, he asked, "Why did you strike me?" and did not turn the other cheek.
No you are not capable of receiving truth.
You are in a mind state of denial of truth.

Your interpretations of the Bible is your own with out Spiritual Incidence from God.

What you read is what you discern with out relating to Gods commandments.

Every word God speaks must not contradict his laws given by Him to man.
And your interpretation of an eye for and eye contradicts Gods law.

God in setting up his laws for justice placed an eye for eye in the hands of the magistrates so that personal revenge if taken violates Gods Commandments.
For God said vengeance in mine protecting man from committing sin against God.

So your understanding of the Bible falls short.
This may help you to understand the Bible.

Wrong!
Your mind is the mind of Muhammad that rejected Jesus as the Son of God.
You cannot get by those words dictated by Muhammad in the Quran that says God has no son.

The Quran and Muhammad are one in the same person.

It is all the words Jesus spoke that he reveals Himself as God in human flesh.

I write so much about him that he comes quite frequently in my dreams.
However, the dreams are not sweet. We argue and reason. Sometimes he does not answer many questions I ask. Instead, he talks about other things, which are off-topic.
During one dream session, I asked Jesus , "Did you Jesus, son of my dearest mother Maryam, tell anyone that you were God or God in person?
Jesus replied, "BMZ, you are an intelligent man. I know you are well-read. It is a great pleasure to discuss with you and that is why I prefer to walk into your dreams.
BMZ, so many lies have been spread against me that I go no where else.
I did not even say openly that I was the messiah, so how could I have said such rubbish? I never made any absurd statement, BMZ."
I replied: "Jesus, truth will set them free one day and all of your misguided followers will return to the one true God of Abraham, whom you worshipped."
Jesus said, "Amen to that" and vanished.
You are barking mad bmz.
You are also a liar.

Your point???

John 17:1-3
When Jesus had said these words, he raised his eyes to Heaven and said, "Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son now so that he may bring glory to you, for you have given him authority over all men to give eternal life for all that you have given to him. And this is eternal life, to know you, the only true God, and him whom you have sent—Jesus Christ."
