“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?”

This is what I wrote:
" People; who believe in the absurdity and idiocy that God has a son and that God is triune, being dishonest themselves think that others, who do not believe in their junk and stuff; are dishonest.
When have you ever been honest about your own absurd scripture and your false and crooked belief system?
You do have an absurd book called the Book of Revelation. Right? Was that absurd revelation given to John in the form of a book?"
Answer this first and then ask questions?
There is nothing absurd or idioic about the teachings of God as found in the Catholic Church.

Now answer my questions.

The koran says it's a book. You say it's a recital. Which is it? When did allah hand out this book to mohammad? Wait, allah never had any contact with mohammad, so when did the spirit hand the koran, book, to mohammad?

Before Jesus' death and resurrection the Gates of Heaven were closed and those dying before then went to Paradise, also called limbo or hell. When Jesus died His soul and divinity went to Paradise, hell, to preach to those who died waiting His coming. After Jesus’ resurrection those in Paradise, hell, went with Him to the Father in heaven.

You are a fool, Shamma!
There was no threat. You are just doing what Jesus did to himself.
You must realise that Christianity is a religion, which is neither accepted by the Jews nor by Muslims. It was inspired by pagan philosophers and has no legs to stand upon.
You are so obsessed with a failed person that you foolishly consider him your God. Then you look at others through the same fractured lens and think others believe a man is their God too. This is rubbish!
Everything about Christianity is a rotten lie. There is not a shred of truth in your religion. Yours is the only religion where the funny teaching and preaching goes against your humorous scripture.
Truth against a lie brings out evil in people who do the lying.

Islam is evil and it brings out the evil in those that are brain washed to do evil from the god they worship.

Islam is not about the God of the Holy Bible its about obeying the evil narcissistic man man Muhammad.

Muslims eat sleep and murder for Muhammad.

How do you know any spirit talked to mohammad? Did someone see this angel beside mohammad? Did mohammad talk to God? No. He talked to some angel who spoke for something called allah? Who is allah? allah is the alter ego of mohammad! Whenever mohammad did something allah would not like allah would say it's okay for mohammad to do it.
Where is the original koran that tells how mohammad asked the people to pray to three goddesses that were allah's daughters?
How do you know who spoke to Moses, Abraham, David and all those prophets?

How do you know who spoke to Mary and gave her glad tidings of a son?

The process by which you believe that angels of God spoke to those prophets, by the same process, we believe that angel of God spoke to our prophet too.

Because any one who says that "Worship the True Lord of the Universe, the One who created this heavens and earth.." cannot be from Satan.

Because it is not the job of Satan to invite people to the worship of True God of this Universe.

This is so simple a test!!

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-64

Chapter 135 Punishment for sinners

Then said Peter: "O Master, tell us how the lost shall be tormented, and how long they shall be in hell, in order that man may flee from sin." Jesus answered:'O Peter, it is a great thing that you have asked, nevertheless, if God please, I will answer you. Know you, therefore, that hell is one, yet has seven centres one below another;. Hence, even as sin is of seven kinds, for as seven gates of hell has Satan generated it: so are there seven punishments therein.

For the proud, that is the loftiest in heart, shall be plunged into the lowest centre, passing through all the centres above it, and suffering in them all the pains that are therein. And as here he seeks to be higher than God, in wishing to do after his own manner, contrary to that which God commands,

'The envious, who here chaffs at the good of his neighbour and rejoices at his misfortune, shall go down to the sixth Centre, and there shall be chafed by the fangs of a great number of infernal serpents.

The covetous shall go down to the fifth Centre, where he shall suffer extreme poverty, as the rich feast suffered. And the demons, for greater torment, shall offer him that which he desires, and when he shall have it in his hands other devils with violence shall snatch it from his hands with these words

To the fourth centre shall go the lustful, where they that have transformed the way given them by God shall be as corn that is cooked in the burning dung of the devil. And there shall they be embraced by horrible infernal serpents.
To the third centre shall go down the slothful who will not work now. Here are built cities and immense palaces, which as soon as they are finished must needs be pulled down straightway, because a single stone is not placed aright.

To the second centre shall go down the gluttonous. Now here there is dearth of food, to such a degree that there shall be nought to eat but live scorpions and live serpents, which give such torment that it would be better never to have been born than to eat such food.

The wrathful goes down to the first centre, where he is insulted by all the devils and by as many of the damned as go down lower than he...

Chapter 136 Continued

In this accursed spot shall abide the infidels for evermore: insomuch that if the world were filled with grains of millet, and a single bird once in a hundred years should take away a single grain to empty the world if when it should be empty the infidels were to go into paradise, they would rest delighted. But there is not this hope, because their torment cannot have an end, seeing that they were not willing for the love of God to put an end to their sin. But the faithful shall have comfort, because their torment shall have an end.' The disciples were affrighted, hearing this, and said:'So then the faithful must go into hell?'

Jesus answered:'Every one, be he who he may, must go into hell. It is true, however, that the holy ones and prophets of God shall go there to behold, not suffering any punishment and the righteous, only suffering fear. And what shall I say? I tell you that thither shall come [even] the Messenger of God, to behold the justice of God. Thereupon hell shall tremble at his presence.

And because he has human flesh, all those that have human flesh and shall be under punishment, so long as the Messenger of God shall abide to behold hell, so long shall they abide without punishment. But he shall abide there [only] so long as it takes to shut and open the eyes. And this shall God do in order that every creature may know that he has received benefit from the Messenger of God.

A lie comes in on the back of the truth. satan would say you are worshiping the one true God while in truth you are worshiping him. The muslim nations do not follow the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. You will know this by their fruit: their inhumanity.

so the christian Heaven and Paradise are two separate places,
Paradise = Limbo = Hell

serving eternal damnation in this "Hell" would be so much fun!

it is also not in his mission to tell humankind to "treat Satan as an enemy" (Quran 35:6) because Jesus said: How can Satan go against himself?

his job commission is to whisper to Paul and "John" that God came as a human and a ghost

You cannot have dialogue with morons.
And Muslims are intellectual morons.
Muslims are screwed for life by the false teachings of Muhammad.
The Quran is the contradiction of Gods teachings.
Only the moron mind of a Muslim would believe that cherry picking Scriptures from other religions represents Gods words in truth.

Muslims believe that the angel Gabriel went around to other religions and told them different revelations, and Muhammad cherry picked from those revelations, and claimed them taken from those other religions as revelations given to Muhammad from Gabriel.

So when Muslims claim Muhammad got revelations from Gabriel they believe they are speaking in truth.

Muslims are morons.

Since Islam began people have charged Muhammad with borrowing stories and religious material from other religions and repeating them as the Quran.

Muhammad's contemporaries had heard those stories before and voiced that Muhammad was repeating them. The exposure of Muhammad's borrowing continues to this day.

Modern Islamic scholars continue the assertion. These scholars come from Atheist, Jewish, Christian, and even Muslim backgrounds.
They've all agreed that Muhammad borrowed religious material. A moderate selection of quotes from about a dozen scholars is presented at the end.

Specifically, scholars assert that primarily Muhammad borrowed from Judaism and Christianity. He also borrowed from Arabic paganism. They add that he injected quite a bit of his own concepts, desires, and philosophy, into the Quran.

On the other hand fundamentalist Muslims claim, as Muhammad claimed, that he received pure revelations from a spirit he identified as the angel "Gabriel". They believe that this spirit, "Gabriel" had previously received these words from God and repeated them to Muhammad. Muhammad then recited them as the Quran.

Since other religions already had scripture they claim came from God, it is only logical to assume that Muhammad's spirit Gabriel also contacted those other religions before Muhammad's spirit angel contacted Muhammad.

Yet there is contradictions in the Quran given to Muhammad by this spirit Muhammad called Gabriel.

I have read all of Paul's Epistles.

It is evident you are void of understanding Scripture.
Hell did nor exist before the coming of Jesus.

Muhammad borrowed from the Jews Scripture and claimed it was a revelation from Gabriel.

There is another passage in the Quran that has its origins in the Mishnah. This passage is Sura 21:51-71. The Mishnah passage is found in Rabbah Genesis.
Here is the Quranic story:
We formerly bestowed guidance on Abraham, for We knew him well. He said to his father and to his people: "What are these images to which you are so devoted?" They replied: "They are the gods our fathers worshipped." He said: "Then you are your fathers are in the grossest error." "Is this the truth that you are preaching," they asked, "or is this but a jest?" "Indeed," he answered, "Your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. It was He that made them: to this I bear witness. By the Lord, I will overthrow your idols as soon as you have turned your backs." He broke them all in pieces, except their supreme god, so that they might return to him. "Who has done this to our deities?" asked some. "He must surely be a wicked man." Others replied: "We have heard a youth called Abraham speak of them." They said: "then bring him here in sight of all the people, that they may act as witnesses." "Abraham," they said, "was it you who did this to our deities?" "No," he replied. "It was their chief who smote them. Ask them, if they can speak." Thereupon they turned their thoughts upon themselves and said to each other: "Surely you are the ones who have done wrong." [Confounded as they were, they said to Abraham:] "You know they cannot speak." He answered: "Would you then worship that, instead of God, which can neither help nor harm you? Shame on you and on your idols! Have you no sense?" They cried: "Burn him and avenge your gods, if you must punish him!" "Fire," We said, "be cool to Abraham and keep him safe."

Here is the quote from the Mishnah Rabbah, Genesis (Noach)(CH 38:11-13) Vol. 1, pp. 310 -311, Soncino Edition, Soncino Press London, Editors Dr H Freedman and Maurice Simon.[28]

13. AND HARAN DIED IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS FATHER TERAH (XI,28). R Hiyya said: Terah was a manufacturer of idols. He once went away somewhere and left Abraham to sell them in his place. A man came and wished to buy one.'How old are you?' Abraham asked him 'Fifty years' was the reply 'Woe to such a man!' he exclaimed.'You are fifty years old and would worship a day old object!' At this he became ashamed and departed.

On another occasion a woman came with a plateful of flour and requested him,'Take this and offer it to them.' So he took a stick and broke them and put the stick in the hand of the largest. When his father returned he demanded,'What have you done to them?''I cannot concealed it from you' he rejoined. "A woman came with a plateful of fine meal and requested me to offer it to them. One claimed 'I must eat first' while another claimed 'I must eat first'. Thereupon the largest arose, took the stick, and broke them." 'Why do you make sport of me' he cried out; 'have they any knowledge!''Should not your ears listen to what your mouth is saying' he retorted. Thereupon he seized him and delivered him to Nimrod.

'Let us worship fire' he (Nimrod) proposed.'Let us rather worship water', which extinguishes the fire' replied he.'Then let us worship water!'' Let us rather worship the clouds which bear the water.''The let us worship the clouds!''Let us rather worship the winds which disperse the clouds''Let us worship the wind!''Let us worship human beings, who withstand the wind''You are just bandying words' he exclaimed; 'We will worship naught but fire. Behold, I will cast you into it, and let the God whom you adore come and save you from it.

Behold, I will cast you into it, and let the God whom you adore come and save you from it.

Now Haran was standing there undecided. If Abram is victorious,(he thought), I will say that I am of Abram's belief, while if Nimrod is victorious I will say that I am on Nimrod's side. When Abram descended into the fiery furnace and was saved, he (Nimrod) asked him,'of whose belief are you?''Of Abram's' he replied. Thereupon he seized and cast him into the fire; his inwards were scorched and he died in his father's presence. Hence it is written, AND HARAN DIED IN THE PRESENCE OF ('AL PENE) HIS FATHER TERAH.
