Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story 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?”

Hey Robotic catholic!!
BJ was an uneducated 1st century trouble maker with no power whatsoever besides hiding behind 12 cowards.
BJ screws a woman and says he is chasing 7 demons!!
BJ didn't say anything at all sensiblle and left idiots like you praying to a naked pagan on a phallic pole. it would have been better with three naked goddesses on poles as you will have more attending empty pagan temples.
BJ was so clueless that he never a saw a single vesre in the NT!!!
BJ had his followers killed by nicey paul and his gang ending up with idiots like you kissing statues of naked men and feet of pedo men in vatican!!
Muhammed Pbuh was a man just like Moses pbuh who made many "apparent" mistakes.
But we are talking about your "god" here!!!
Is he so vindictive that he came as a human to get killed by Jews so they get condemned till eternity and get persecuted by your Church and "christians" for more than 1800 years murdering them in their millions as christ killers nearly wiping off the jewih race!!
Either your god arranged to have his son murdered or he pretented to come as a human to get killed by jews!!
You are suggesting that you worship a callous little minigod, right?
On top of all this your "god" is making cockups after cockup!
Look at his rockman on whom your holy church stands!!
Your "god" could not find many educated, intelligent, courageous, honest, proficient students!
The First pope was:
- Married
- A coward (fled at first sign of trouble)
- A liar (denied the poor teacher several times)
- Incompetent fisherman (relied on teacher's miracles to catch fish!)
- Terrible warrior (chops off ear of defenceless temple servants)
- Immodest ( hangs around naked fishing)
- Uneducated (clueless)
- Satan (The teacher himself called him by that name)
- More bothered about this world than the hereafter (The teacher himself accused him of this)
Yes, a great "church"(pagan temple) rock and an honest key holder of "heaven" (heel in reality)?
mohammad was an uneducated 7th century war lord who tried to kill himself on many occasion because an evil spirit was troubling him. After a woman told him the spirit was Gabriel he stopped trying to kill himself.
mohammad asked the people to pray to three goddesses who were the daughters of allah.
mohammad could not even preserve the original koran.
mohammad had his followers bowing to a city and kissing a rock.

We are all sinners rabbee and through that book that God gave to you God shows what sin is and how and why we are to strive in life to avoid doing sin.
When God created Adam in the image of God Himself, Adam became the first created human being, and in Gods plane He gave His image of God himself to us through and in the descendants of Adam.
Your message you give is mus-guided.
rabbee: i do not need, your antiG-D help. i already got enough of that, from the mother of all living. in case you don't know, scripture here in IT. that G-D so loved the world, that HE came to tell TheHisSon adam about the woman chaooah.

as apparently you cannot figure out, what story we are all here in from TheG-D of Only TheTorah. so therefore i am not a decendant of Adam, i am TheHisOnly Begotten Son adam. in exactly the same old, story again from G-D.

because TheG-D i know is not, ever a new testament liar. for i find it extreemly ignorant, that after G-D has Adam put to death. this world has no idea, what happens next. G-D'S Story Line of the physical creation, does not ever change. no matter how many other times, G-D has given it.

hey cathartic...
listen to yourself you idiot!
You claim that, BJ=god.
You claim that, god=BJ

So you are saying....
""BJ" the innocent Lamb of "BJ" was accused of many crimes and was put to death for your crimes/sins. But "BJ" would not let his "Holy One" rot in the Grave and rasied Him up after three days in the tomb."

Many people ask this question!!

Is holy one= foreskin?

because he was circumcised. When he rose what happened to the foreskin?

Did it rot or get up with him?
You are pathetic.

HughBe--- Paul, please don't allow that clown that judges your post funny to reinforce your errors. Pay attention to the scriptures as I point them out to you and you shall be ok.
FIRST, I shall repeat my previous words for your meditation and then address your current post. I have noticed that you have a tendency to ignore issues.
Your words, Paul-- "the leaders of the Catholic Church blessed St Paul's mission to the gentiles and gave him ADVISE on what he should REQUIRE of his converts"
Scriptures for comparison -- Galatians 1
"I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is NOT after man. For I neither received it of man, NEITHER WAS I TAUGHT it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." KJV
"I immediately prepared to do this work WITHOUT asking for ADVICE or HELP from anyone. I did not go to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was. But, without waiting, I went away to Arabia. Later, I went back to the city of Damascus." Easy-To-Read version
DO YOU understand that Paul's ministry started for years before he met any other apostle? If so what was he teaching?
Do YOU understand, that Paul did NOT learn his teachings from any other apostle?
VIP--(QUOTE the passage that supports your claim that Paul was blessed by the other apostles)
Paul---The governance of the Catholic Church was well established during the life time of the Apostles as this excerpt from Acts clearly shows (emphasis in capitals are mine):
Acts 15:
The apostles and elders, your brothers,
To the Gentile believers in Antioch
HughBe--- Did YOU notice the words YOUR BROTHERS? what do they mean to you? "The apostles and elders, YOUR BROTHERS"
The gentile Christians SENT the APOSTLE Paul to Jerusalem and so my question to you is, did they have AUTHORITY over the apostle Paul?
Explain, Acts 15:2 below and link it to YOUR "governance of the Catholic Church"
Who was the GOVERNOR in the gentile churches was it the membership or the apostle Paul?
Acts 15:2 "Paul and Barnabas ·were against this teaching and argued [&#8239;had no small argument and debate] with them about it. So the CHURCH ·decided to SEND [commissioned; appointed] Paul, Barnabas, and some others to Jerusalem where they could talk more about this disagreement with the apostles and elders"
St Paul was a prophet of God and God's messenger to the gentiles. However, even with his commission from God as a prophet of God he still recognized the AUTHORITY of the leaders of the Catholic Church and went up to Jerusalem to get their blessing on his ministry.

I am not a fundy and thus do not have to demonstrate anything using only the Holy Bible, for Sacred Tradition and the Holy Bible can not be separated; they form one whole.

HughBe--- I have no doubt that the pope gave YOU and others like you your bible.
As for me, God gave me my bible via Moses, the Jewish prophets,the Jewish writings, Jesus and the Jewish APOSTLES including Paul, a former Pharisee, Peter, John and the non-Jew Luke, the physician.
Now, you spoke about documents being INSPIRED by the Holy Spirit and I say let us explore that some more.
Share the 10 commandments as taught by your church and at the same time quote the 10 found in the KJV or the Tanach.
There is no need to compare anything to the kjv of the bible since king james had no authority from God to translate the Holy Bible into English. There are many links on the net that will explain the comparison between the Ten Commands as used by various churches. This thread is about "Who is allah" and I have no desire to be diverted into some Christian/Christian apologetics.

Brother HughBe is trying to educate you. So, please learn. He is taking you to task in this thread.

You are the one, who is already into Christian apologetics. So, be a good apologist and discuss points raised by brother HughBe.

It is good to see two Christians argue. So, offer some good rebuttals.

HughBe--- 1.support your claim by quoting scripture.

2. Is it because he recognized their AUTHORITY why he had the following approach to them and their AUTHORITY?

Approach "I immediately prepared to do this work WITHOUT asking for ADVICE or HELP from anyone. I did NOT go to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was"

Paul--- Sacred Tradition and the Holy Bible can not be separated; they form one whole

HughBe--- man-made traditions maybe good but they should NEVER be equated to the words of God.

Recall, you spoke about documents being inspired by the Holy Spirit and as such I wanted to see your inspired works and to compare them with the KJV or the TANACH. Did you see the word TANACH?

Compare the 10 of your church with the TANACH 10 or the Septuagint 10

Trusting that you do not find fault with those versions as well.

Just curious, is your version older than the Septuagint?

I go to the sacrement of Reconciliation and have no need to confess to you who can do nothing for me. It was through Jesus' death and resurrection that my sins can now be forgiven.

The Holy Spirit has not left me, I am a temple of the Holy Spirit.

You said the holy spirit is the mother of allah's three daughters, so is that why you think he left me?

Mr "Know It All" here
Fact is you don't have any better a clue than anyone else. And neither do I. The main difference between me and you is that I admit it and you don't. Real sign of intelligence is knowing your limits.
Sounds like I deflated your ego and you are trying to build it up again by personally attacking my moral integrity.

You are trying to apply Psychology in reverse instead of applying your intelligence to come to an understanding and meaning of the post I post

It appears to me you are trying to take away the intelligence I bring to this forum.

What is the Bible?
Is it not an invitation by God to have communion and converse with Him?

If that is not what the Bible is all about, then why did God inspire the prophets to write about Him?

Shamma---Paul did not need teaching from the Apostles. Paul was instructed by Jesus.
HughBe--- I believe that it will be instructive if you reread my words with care.
Here are some of them, "NEITHER WAS I(Paul) TAUGHT it(gospel), but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."
"I immediately prepared to do this work WITHOUT asking for ADVICE or HELP from anyone"
1. That is what is called intelligent communication.
That is not a teaching instruction of the Gospels from the Apostles.
That fell under the assignment of what Paul was to receive from the Apostles.

2. Yes, When Paul was baptized he received the Holy Spirit and was enlightened in wisdom and understanding of who Jesus Christ is.
And through the Holy Spirit Jesus instructed Paul in the knowledge of the Gospels.

3. That is correct.

4. So in all instances Paul's testimony in the Scriptures is correct.

NO! You attacked my message without understanding the moral value it contained in my post to rabbee.

And you still don't understand it.

You attack my post in ignorance of the message it contains.

For instance: your "What if " question was questioning the moral truth of what I posted.

And I replied; Your "what if" question was poorly conceived in your mind.

You didn't consider my characterization of God being "love" to be true.
