Who Is Allah?

There are 255927 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?”

They can't and the tragic part is that they can't even pray in the native language of Jesus.
Maybe YOU can't. Doesn't mean no Christian can.
Can YOU pray in Latin?

Thats not the really tragic part.

The really tragic part is that many dont even know what Aramaic is. At least even the noneducated Jews know what Hebrew is, and the noneducated moslems know what Arabic is.

<quoted text>You are right to a point; that Christianity is no more relevance in the modern world, and has been replaced by intellectual inquiry that promotes debate on how to help the ignorance of people remain in their ignorance so that liberals can feel good about them self in finding ways to fund the needs of the ignorant.
Not my problem. My religion has ALWAYS valued inquiry and debate. As a result it never lost its relevance, or its popularity. You would be wise to understand this.

You might start by focusing on the fundamentals, such as what is scripture and why wouldnt EVERYONE (not just the command and control management)learn and possess the tools to interpret it.

The NT Scriptures were written in Greek; the native language. So where does your definition say Greek is not a scriptural language. What is bmz's definition of a scriputal language; I've been waiting a week for a reply to this question.
We werent talking about the NT - I never questioned any of your NT citations. I questioned the veracity of your mangled OT translations from the original Hebrew.

Jews keep borrowing from various cultures or sources to reinvent their beliefs, attitudes and practices.
If a faith is based on cosmic principles then it need not reinvent itself nor does it need to readjust its values since the cosmic principles on which it stands are eternal.
Vedanta and Buddhism are faiths based on cosmic principles as seen in their expositions and so these faiths need not adjust themselves with the march of time. Who can dispute the laws of consciousness, space, singularity, space, time and the rest? These are the cosmic principles that never change.
Straw arguments - off topic

The point is when one studies Torah in the Jewish tradition, one starts by raising questions.

And one ends by raising more questions.

I.E. the method encourages discussion, debate, dissent.

Furthermore, the religion has never really been anti-science. Science is not considered a theological threat.

Most forms of Christianity, otoh, are based on literalisms and the suppression of public inquiry into the meaning of the scripture. And many denominations do not support science.

Keep on lying like the Church did for centuries, Doc!
Ibn Ishaq was an idiot just like the writers of the four gospels, who wrote the atles based on hearsay.
His book cannot be found. And some work was re-written by his deputy, Ibn Hisham. There is no mention of any John or the gospel or the New Testament in his works.
We have been showing you corruptions and forgeries in your Bible daily. How can you say taht there is no corruption in your Bible?
The problem is that you have not really read your corrupt Bible, we have. Forgeries were rampant in the first four centuries and that 'tradition' was always maintained by the Church. Forgeries only stopped after the 18th Century.
You really are a mental defective bmz.
Any fact that exposes your insane version of history is somehow a lie.
Anything in any historical source that proves you are incorrect is somehow corrupted or a forgery.
You are the fraud attempting corruption and forgery bmz.
Like all muztards, you obey the murderous false prophet and lie to promote your sick cult.
You are evil.

The right premise for the question is why I was asking bmz the question in the first place. bmz was trying to imply Greek is not a scriptural language because it cannot articulate theological concepts in general. I asked bmz to provide a definition of a scriptural language by a recognized authority saying Greek is not a scriptural language.

UhUh brought to our attention that the Jews offer their prayers in Hebrew and Muslims offer in Arabic.

That is very true. You don't. So what is your problem?

Did Jesus pray to the Father in Greek, the market or street language in the area?

No, because Latin and Greek, languages unfit for any Scripture, were not the language of my Scripture.

Did Jesus pray in Latin or Greek?

Why does one need a recognized authority for a simple comment?

I have already said that the Greek language is unfit for any Scripture because it has never been the language of any Scripture revealed.

Hebrew or Jewish Scriptures were only revealed in Hebrew. so, Hebrew can be called a language in which Scripture was revealed and that simply means a Scriptural Language.

Greek is not. Nothing was revealed in that language by God. So, we call it non-scriptural language.

"Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" is Aramaic and that is the language that Jesus spoke. Why was nothing written in Aramaic?

The massive confusion which led to various absurd doctrines and the concoction of a triune God, came through Greek.

We've proven to you a hundred times that your bullshit about forged gospels is bullshit.
We show you fragments of the gospels from the first and second centuries, you say they're forged.
We show you quotes from the new testament in the writings of first and second century authors, you say they're forged.
LOL.
You're a fool.
