Who Is Allah?

There are 251273 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?”

No, because Latin and Greek, languages unfit for any Scripture, were not the language of my Scripture.
Did Jesus pray in Latin or Greek?
Well since the new testament scriptures were written in GREEK, obviously Greek is not unfit for any scripture.
Duh.

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.
Well you wanted a definition, and BMZ provided you one.

And he also explained why your premise that an authority is needed is baseless. That said, any serious scholar of scripture would agree 100% with BMZ.

All this time you spend arguing, you could be learning Aramaic or Hebrew. Or even Greek.

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?
It does not matter what language Jesus or the prophets prayed in, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob can understand all languages. allah apparently can't.

The NT Scripture was revealed in Greek proving once more you don't know what you are talking about. You claim the NT is not scripture which is not supported by experts in the field. You think because you say something makes it true, but you are on the fringe of intellectual inquiry. No wait, you are not even on the fringe, you are on the lunatic side.

Greek is used in the NT scriptures making you and bmz wrong. Now provide a definition from a recognized source saying Greek is not a scriptural language.

Almost all of Jesus ministry was in the "market or street" in the region of Galilee, where Greek was the common language, so yes Jesus preached and prayed with the people in Greek.

Depite all the arguings between you and them trying to push the other religion down and promote one's own, Christians and Muslims are not that different. You believe that all the other religions are false and who doesn't believe in the Nazarene is going to burn in hell. Muslims believe that Islam is the only true religion of god and who doesn't believe in Muhammad is going to burn in hell.
Ironic, isn't it.
There's no point in discussing the Bible with you as you have no idea at all.

You are completely lost in ignorance, one day you will wake up in hell then it will be too late.

Do you actually understand Greek?

I have a BETTER suggestion:
Greece is in a lot of trouble thanks to Euroland.
Let the Greek speaking people have exclusive rights to these Pagan NT books.

You can write your own pagan NT books in English!!

Being an Englishman I shall be delighted to see English as a scriptural language!

Hey plagiarizing book thieves:
Why did you steal a Jewish G-d and turn Him into a Jewish mangod?

Why did you get this Jewish mangod circumcised on the 8th day?

Why did you get this Jewish mangod killed?

Why you you let this Jewish mangod go to heaven leaving his foreskin behind?

>>>>Who died? God or Jesus?
<<<<God CANNOT die.
>>>>Jesus the man can die and it is no big deal.
<<<<But what happened to his foreskin?
))))Did it rise with him?

Please spare us the Horse Shit that only Jesus can save a person from hell. That is rubbish.
The man could not even save himself, so how can he save others? Jesus is no bloody savior, only the LORD Almighty is.
Sorry I only believe in Jesus.

I explored Islam and found that Allah and Mohammed are paedophiles, mass murderers, thieves and liars.

These are all proven historical facts, no Muslim can deny the reality of these facts.

This facts are accepted by all respected Western historians and theologians. You simply cannot deny the facts, I know the Islamic countries treat their populations like mushrooms. They keep them in the dark and feed them manure.

Thankfully, we in the free world have access to the facts. You can go to any library in the free western countries and access the full facts about Islam.

If you had access to the info we have, you would be ashamed to be Muslim. You would leave it immediately.

That's why he shouted out very loud in GREEK....

MATT 27:

46 About the ninth hour BJ cried out with a loud voice, saying,“ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?”

It is GREEK for:

“My god, my god, why have you FORESKINNED ME?!!!!....

But some think he meant in Hebrewish-Aramaic:

"My god, my god, why have you FORSAKEN ME?!!

There is no matter whether Jesus, or any Proclaimed Prophet, offered up address of prayer, sacrifices or demands in language or acts of a particular language. What matters is that the Prophet wore one of those cute little Prophet suits and that the assembled witnesses, there were/are always assembled witnesses to such acts (otherwise why bother, eh?) could lift up their collective inspired voice in song " Ohhhhh, you look so cute in your little white suit" whilst swaying and waiting as one for the punch line.

Obviously not you.
You should know however that it is possible to know 2 or more languages.
Almost all the people in the region of Galilee where Christ lived spoke Greek as the common language. Aramaic or Latin might be their first language but they also spoke Greek. The language of literature was also Greek in the eastern empire, which is why the new testament was written in Greek.
And please stop talking sick gay muztard crap about foreskins. You sound more pathetic than usual.

I shall have an italian aristo-visconte coming over to stay with me. He understands English and I understand him.
Good health.
LOL

What is aristo-visconte? Not just you made up your posts but even noble titles.

The term aristo comes from the Italian word aristocratico, in English aristocratic. So what's the reason to call a visconte aristocratic, as a title, when the word visconte include that?

If you understand him and he's coming to stay with you, well, happy homosexual love, Muslim.

READ again you sick little creep.
You have made some crazy claims about NT being "revealed" in Greek!!!
You need to be locked up!

Jesus has not seen a SINGLE word in your "holy" NT!

That poor man spoke aramaic.

That's why your Greek scripture looks so dumb...
