Who Is Allah?

There are 256599 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?”

The Psalmist used the singular heaven in verses 3.
In verse 16 he used heavens and heavens knowing God created more than one heaven.

@ Shamma
Shaman,
What is your stupid problem?
First, you do not know a single word of Hebrew, while we know Arabic, which is very close to Hebrew.
All your scripture came from a scripturally poor language Greek. Right?
What are the words for heaven and heavens in Greek? If you know the two words, you can then realize how unfit that language is for Scripture, including English.
In Greek, the word "heaven" is "paravisos" and the word "heavens" is "Oolamia".(Translite rated by yours truly. Correct me if I heard wrong)
See how absurd that language is? And you are foolishly arguing about Shamayim?
Your Church fathers and the men, who penned your books, were ignorant fools, who were not really fluent in Hebrew.
In order to justify the silly, idiotic and absurd plurality of God, you guys can go to the extent of even making a cow, plural.
yup, we didnt even get to the fact that Arabic works the same way

Exactly!

We have Samawaat and Samaa. Both mean the same.

The problem is that the Church has her own Christian English.

Hebrew should be abolished, Jews keep stumbling around like they are drunk in translating their scriptures.
Shame on you Frijoles.
The concept of multiple heavens is fascinating hooey as espoused by madlech hya zu'urin, is implausibel and tough to do for the managers of the place(s).

Heaven is not one and only one. There exists a gradation of the heavens (supraphysical planes).

Arabic may be close to Hebrew or to Zulu but what does it matter when Arabic has made a big mess in describing the reality as seen in the gibberish in the Quran?

Not one line from the Quran can be considered original or profound and befitting of a text dealing with cosmic existence in its gross and subtle aspects.

As in the past as well as in the present, Arabic is the language of the barbaric masses in the Middle East and elsewhere where it's spoken.

Fool, language means nothing, content is everything and it goes without saying that Arabic lacks both substance as well as style and is the lingo of ignorance and savagery.

So, what according to you, as a Christian, is the nature of the reality?

Please don't quote some bull shit verse from ignorant scriptures like the Tanakh or the NT.

Talk in terms of causation, conservation, unity in variety, nondualism, unified field, consciousness, energy, matter and the like.

LOL.

Anything without limits would collapse for want of centralized control.

Infinity is a number.

Almighty?

But, the world is in a big mess and this almighty God of yours, Jesus, failed to describe the reality in comprehensive, incisive and accurate terms and was pretty clueless about most things material as well as transcendental.

Anyway, keep the blinkers on and stick to your narrow tribal identity.

Idiot,

You are totally off-topic, clueless fool!

The point is that revelations for Judaism and Islam came in Hebrew and Arabic. Nothing was revealed in Greek or Sanskrit.

You don't know a word of Hebrew and Arabic, so how can you comprehend and capture the beauty of those languages?

Again, you write without reading and understanding what I wrote.

Everything of Christianity was written in Greek and I have said many times that it is a very poor and a crude language, which is unfit for a scripture. The Jews do not have scrolls in Greek. OK?

If your scripture had been written by Jesus' Hebrew speaking Jews, there would have been no absurdities such as the silly doctrines, the triune God, God-in-flesh, etc., and there would have been
no Christianity.

At worst, you would have been a sect of Judaism.

You say Greek is unfit for Scripture and yet God chose to use it.

St Paul, apostle, prophet and messenger to the gentiles, wrote in Greek. It is arabic that is unfit for scripture since words can be twisted to mean anything you want; for example, you say book in arabic can mean revelations or scripture. What a useless lanuage. The original koran, that speaks of the three goddesses, did not have any punctuation marks that were only later added by scribes who could have twisted it any way they wished.

God never revealed anything in Greek. Foreigners wrote about Jesus and Christianity.

The language that Jesus spoke, was different.

You think because you say something makes it true. The NT was written in Greek proving you don't have a clue what you are talking about. St Paul, a Jew, was an apostle, prophet and messenger to the gentiles.

Let's talk about how in accurate a language arabic is. What are the arabic words for book, revealations and scripture?

Once a disputation happened between the apostles and the other Jews on the Temple steps. Saul entered with some men inciting the people to raise an uproar, shouting "What are you waiting for people? Let us rip them to pieces". Thus in the midst of the fighting and confusion Saul the enemy pushed off James, the brother of Jesus, headlong from the top of the stairs.

Paul never quoted from the gospels, the things Jesus said and done, even in places where it would be most appropriate to insert them in his letters
proof that the gospels did not exist yet, NOT EVEN IN ORAL FORM
so which gospel he had in mind when he said "according to my Gospel" (Rom 2:16), "according to the Gospel which was entrusted to me" (1Tim 1:11)

it's only after clueless "John" wrote: No man has ascended up to heaven except the Son of Man (John 3:13), that christians had to revise back this concept of previous prophets' ascension to Heaven and they came up with this nonsense of locked gate of Heaven, righteous souls in a dark Hell etc.
so now they say that the whirlwind only took Elijah to another location on earth lol
Muslims treat sin lightly but God does not.

It is that simple.

Thomas Jefferson's assessment of christianity,

"A short time elapsed after the death of the great reformer of the Jewish religion before his principles were perverted and adulterated" (1810)
"Paul was the great Coryphaeus, the first corrupter of the doctrines of Jesus" (1820)
