Who Is Allah?

There are 252826 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?”

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.
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?

St Paul, apostle and prophet to the gentiles, wrote in Greek. So you are wrong once again.

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.

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.

Paul taught the same Gospels that all the Apostles preached and taught about Jesus.
The death and resurrection of Gods Son Jesus.

In your story, I detect an inner feeling of your resentment of the Apostle Paul

Christians have a personal relationship God, Muslims don't.
Muslims want to kill Christians because God loves Christians and God
dwells inside the heart of Christians.
God loves Muslims, but Muslims are not willing to accept God as their Father.

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.

God is not stupid that He should speak only in one language.
When God say we should speak with one voice, it is meant we should not allow evil to have a voice in our lives.

We filled our houses with all sorts of gadgets but our minds have not changed. My religious friend is still a believer.---------
I have read the Bible and the Quran and both are full of so many absurdities and mistakes, both logical and factual that there is no way they can be true. Islam is just the word of one man.
A real God could do a lot better than that.

Paul was not a Jew. He was a Roman. That Paul was a Jew, is rubbish. Had Paul been a Jew, pagans would not have accepted him. It was the Roman brand that worked.

My point is that Greek is not God's scriptural language. That language is the culprit, which led to a massive confusion and you got the absurdity known as the Triune God, man God and God man, etc.

Please stop talking nonsense.
You read translations of translations of translations of copies of copies of copies of copies with more mistakes than the number of stars in the galaxy and talk about your personal non existent relationship with your invented god.
Your god can only be satan because if you understood Jesus in his OWN language you would have known that he NEVER wanted you to worship him.
If you understood Jesus in his OWN language you would have realised that he NEVER claimed divinity.

Until you can understand what Jesus said in his OWN language you should stop pumping your lies and misconceptions on others.
