Who Is Allah?

There are 230291 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?”

There is nothing to defend Qur'aan and Isalm.
It is Christianity that has to defend her absurdities. I have not seen any Christian defending Christianity well. They know that they can't.
You are right about that, there is nothing to defend islam and koran. So you have to try to divert attention from islam and koran to Christianity.

So the koran does not say the spirit troubling mohammad was Gabriel? What makes you think it is Gabriel?

Look! Jesus went through hell and so will you. You have to follow his Way.
rabbee: it did not have to, happen this way. but it, did. your denial of being here in TheStory of Creation, made your horror stories necessary. and so now Adam must be returned, in the very next Torot time. because you all pretend to be, in some other story except TheTorah we are all here in again.

rabbee: well you are all the ones, denying where in the hell you really are. and there is no plan of of redeemption, for those pretending to not be physically here in TheTorah.
redemption is only for those, who recognize we are actually here in TheTorah physically again. to deny being here in TheStory of ThePhysical Creation again, is to deny the existance of G-D again.
there is no offer of GanEden, to the deluded we are not mentally also really here in TheStory Again. this world's mental denial, of not being here in TheStory is not the reality. and your only going to get, hell for it from G-D.
if adam and your same grandmother of all, does not give birth to all of you again. then you all, cease to exist again. you'll never actually be born again. as you all and your grandmother of all, only get three or four whole Torot chances at this.
your straining at seeing the small individual icons, and miss seeing the big picture for all seven days again. for we are all here, once again near the end of the sixth day. with the whole world, in denial of this again.
and with all the corruption, continually going on in this world. as a result of this world's denial, of us all being here in TheTorah again. the next thing to happen, when G-D returns from the day of rest, is going to be the day one deluvian beguining again.
so in conclusion, what redeemption is based on. is the acceptance of G-D, while we are all here in TheSame Story of Creation again. since this is the same old story again, about Adam being put to death on the tree, and being returned as adam and his mate.
and G-D is not about, to change this in TheHappening. as you only again, deny the existance of adam and his mate, with your delusion of not being here in only TheTorah from G-D for the third time again.
The Torah you are in rabbee is fictional.
It does not exist.

Three Heavens

The Scripture mentions three heavens (2 Corinthians 12:2), not just one!

The first heaven is earth's atmosphere where birds fly (Genesis 1:20, Jeremiah 4:25; 34:20, Lamentations 4:19, Zephaniah 1:3). One of the Hebrew words for 'heaven' is shamayim. This same word is translated as 'sky' in the Scripture, as can be seen by comparing Genesis 7:3, "fowls also of the air," with Genesis 7:23, "fowl of the heaven." The word 'sky' and 'heaven' are used interchangeably from the same Hebrew word (Psalm 8:8). So the first heaven is synonymous with 'heights' or 'elevations.'

Here are other examples to illustrate the first heaven. Exodus 19:20 says the Lord was on top of Mount Sinai when he called Moses up there, and God describes Mount Sinai as 'heaven'(Exodus 20:22, Deuteronomy 4:36). Here, everything above the ground is called 'heaven'.

Another example of the first heaven is in Amos 9:1-3, where God states that at the time of this judgment, nobody will be able to flee away (verse 1), even "though they climb up to heaven" (verse 2). This "heaven" is defined in the next verse, verse 3, as climbing to the top of Mount Carmel.

Another example is where the Scripture speaks of the "dew of heaven" (Genesis 27:28,39, Deuteronomy 33:28, Daniel 4:15-33; 5:21). The first heaven, from which dew comes, means the atmosphere, where the clouds and the wind roam. Therefore, everything above the ground is called 'heaven."

Another Hebrew word for the first heaven is 'shachaq.' This same word for heaven (Psalm 89:6,37) is also translated as 'sky' or 'skies'(Deuteronomy 33:26; Job 37:18; Psalm 18:11), and as 'clouds'(Job 35:5; 36:28; Psalm 36:5; 68:34, Pro. 3:20; 8:28).

The second heaven is outer space where the planets and stars exist (Genesis 1:14-17; 15:5; 22:17; 26:4, Deuteronomy 1:10; 17:3; Psalm 8:3, Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29). Usually the term "host of heaven" or "firmament of the heaven" is used to describe this second heaven.

The third heaven is literally called "the third heaven" in 2 Corinthians 12:2. This third heaven is what Christ calls his "Father's house" (John 14:2), and both Christ and the Apostle Paul calls it "paradise" (Luke 23:43, 2 Corinthians 12:2-4, Revelation 2:7). This is where God and the heavenly sanctuary exist (1 Peter 3:22). This third heaven is also known as the "heaven of heavens" (Deuteronomy 10:14; 1 Kings 8:27, 2 Chronicles 2:6; 6:18, Nehemiah 9:6, Psalms 148:4), "The heavenly Jerusalem" (Galatians 4: 26; Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 3:12), the "kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 25:1, James 2:5), the "eternal kingdom" (2 Peter 1:11), the "eternal inheritance" (1 Peter. 1:4, Hebrews 9:15), and the "better country" (Hebrews 11:14,16). The fact that there are more than one 'heaven' can be shown by Psalm 115:16, "The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S." There are obviously two different 'heavens' being addressed in this one verse.

Since Elijah could not have gone to the heaven of God's throne, then to which heaven did he go? He was not taken to God's heavenly throne (as some imagine). He was actually taken into this earth's atmosphere, the first heaven. There could be no whirlwind in any other place but in the atmosphere surrounding this earth.

OSHO CONDEMNS JESUS:

1) "If you ask Jains and Buddhas and Hindus that the crucifixion of Jesus Christ was for the salvation of humanity, that it is the greatest sacrifice God has given, His own son, to save humanity - all the three will laugh. They will say that this is stupid since God who is omnipotent can create the whole world, He can change it any moment - without any sacrifice, without any crucifixion, without all this drama."

2) "Secondly, the Hindus, Jains and Buddhists will not accept Jesus as enlightened, because he was crucified. According to Hindus, Jains and Buddhists - all the religions born in India - anyone who is enlightened cannot be crucified. Existence is not so unkind."

rabbee: only according to your own fictional, someone elses fictional mind.

and i would like some one, show me in TheWritten Torah. where G-D claimed, to of quit giving TheTorah here in IT again.

since only assuming we are not here in, TheSame Old Story again. is not sufficient mental only evidence, to support that adam and his mate are not actually physically here again.

since all you are doing, is denouncing G-D'S THE Version of this. with your own mental magic only version, that does not physically excuse from being here in IT.

JESUS - A CRACKPOT:

"Prayer is directed towards a mythological God, a fiction. Prayer is always directed outward. Meditation is an inward journey, not to some fiction but to your own reality. Enlightenment happens to those who come to realize their being - Jesus is still praying to a God, thinking still that he is the only begotten son of God - that proves him just to be a crackpot - thinking that after crucifixion God will raise him again, more luminous, glorious. But on the cross nothing happens. He is thirsty and he asks for water, and God cannot even give him a bottle of Coke. Frustrated, he shouts towards the sky,'Father, have you forsaken me?' The very word "father" shows that he is still a helpless child, he is not a mature person. He still needs a father figure, and is afraid perhaps the father has forsaken him. But now it is too late - he is crucified."

JESUS - A FALSE SAVIOR

"Jesus thought that he was the savior. No enlightened person has ever said that he can save anybody; he can only share his experience. Then to save yourself or not is your business. See the subtlety of the point: if somebody can save you, then even your being saved is not your freedom, it is dependent. What kind of saving is it?

Not a single enlightened man - Bodhidharma, Chuang Tzu, Basho, Nagarjuna - has ever said that he is a savior. All that he can say is,'I am saved, and I have an experience which you don't have. If you are ready, I can open my whole heart to you.' And then it is your decision to be saved or not saved."

- OSHO

NO ONE CAN SAVE ANYONE:

"Nobody can save someone who does not want to be saved. And if somebody wants to be saved, he has to find the way himself. The enlightened person is just like a bird: he flies into the sky but leaves no footprints. You cannot follow him; you can simply see the joy, the freedom - that the whole sky is available to him.

Perhaps that may awaken in you a desire also.

Perhaps for the first time you will find that you also have wings. And if that bird can fly, why can't you fly? The function of the enlightened person is just to create the milieu in which you become aware of your wings, you become aware of your potentialities.

Jesus is not doing that. He is the shepherd and you are the sheep. No man has insulted humanity in such a way as Jesus has done. Enlightened people don't humiliate; in fact, they respect you because they can see your potential - if not today, then tomorrow you will be flying. If not tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow.

Time does not matter, because we are part of eternity. On both ends it is eternity. Time does not matter. When you start flying has no significance; flying has significance. But to tell you,'I am the shepherd and you are the sheep,' is to destroy your individuality; it is to destroy your freedom; it is to destroy your integrity; it is to destroy everything that is valuable; it is to reduce you from human beings to animals. An enlightened person raises you, helps you to rise to super-human beings. He does not make you sheep.

No, Jesus was not enlightened.

In fact, in the Judaic and Christian tradition the orthodox have never been enlightened.

Amongst Jews, there have been a few enlightened people, but they are not accepted by the orthodox Jews. Those are the Hassids - rare and really genuine people. But the orthodox will not accept them... and they are the only beauty that Judaism has created. The very flowering of Judaism is Hassidism, but it is rejected.


The enlightened person is bound to be rejected by every tradition. In Greek tradition you will hear about Aristotle, Plato, Plotinus, and so many other philosophers; but you will rarely see Heraclitus mentioned as an enlightened man, or Pythagoras, or even Socrates. But these are the people.... But the very word "enlightenment" does not exist in the Greek traditions.

The same is true in Mohammedanism.

Mohammed is not enlightened, and the orthodox tradition of Mohammedans rejects Sufi mystics who are enlightened: Jalaluddin Rumi, al-Hillaj Mansoor, Sarmad, Rabiya al-Adabiya. These people are not part of the traditional religion. They are rejected, condemned.

The same has been true all over the world.

But now it is time - I can tell you things directly. Rejoice that you are accepted as capable of hearing the truth."
