Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 256604 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?”

How do immans come up with a fatwah? A bunch of them sit around guessing what would mohammad do and then do as mohammad would do. So muslims follow a man, while when Christians say do what Jesus would do they are following God.
Fatwah is exactly similar to your Sacred Traditions, which are opinions of men. Fatwah is just an opinion, not a Scripture.

And that is another lie.
There are only a few Aramaic words in the NT and they are:
"Eli, Eli, Lama sabachthani?"
"Thalita quom"
"Raca"
"Ephatha", etc.
These words could not be translated into Greek, so they were left in. Equivalents were given later.
You have no original of anything.
Bull-crap.
You don't want to know the truth because ot destroy Muhammad and his bull-crap Quran.

Whether the Jews accept Jesus or not as there Messiah does change the fact that Jesus is the Son of God.
No, he is not. There is no proof and there is direct statement from the horse's mouth.

The day you discover "Jesus said,'I am the Son of God' " in any gospel, let me know, so that I can quickly dismiss that lie.

You have nothing from Jesus to support the absurd claims, claimed by Christianity on his behalf.

Double barrel or hyphenated expression? In other words you don't even know what you wrote before. LOL

For your information you only used the hyphen, so what? You cannot think hyphen can, in some way, justify your errant and invented grammar rules.

Let's not forget also a very important thing, you are the genius who made up a new terminology. The term aristo-visconte is totally wrong because the word visconte is yet an aristocratic title and doesn't need to be accompanied by the word aristo.

You called me fool and arrogant who thinks to know all, but the truth is you are calling names, because you don't know anymore how get out by your embarassing mistakes, thus, instead to shut your mouth or admit you wrote absurdity, you are showing yourself for what you really are, an ignorant fool incapable to admit its own mistakes and attack to not be attacked.

Who knows with what kind of term or concept you will come out next time... aristo-re? LOL

You are not a match for me by any chance, so stick with people of your same low level.

Where is this original scripture?

Why dont you learn Aramaic so that you can read it yourself?

And why did Mel Gibson have to rely on a JEWISH speaker rather than a Christian speaker of the language to assist him to make his movie?

that version was STILL a translation INTO Syriac

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peshitta

But what Theodore of Mopsuestia says of the Old Testament is true of both: "These Scriptures were translated into the tongue of the Syriacs by someone indeed at some time, but who on earth this was has not been made known down to our day".[4]

F. Crawford Burkitt concluded that the translation of the Old Testament was probably the work of Jews, of whom there was a colony in Edessa about the commencement of the Christian era.[5]

The older view was that the translators were Christians, and that the work was done late in the 1st century or early in the 2nd. The Old Testament known to the early Syrian church was substantially that of the Palestinian Jews. It contained the same number of books but it arranged them in a different order. First there was the Pentateuch, then Job, Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings, 1 and 2 Chronicles, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Ruth, Canticles, Esther, Ezra, Nehemiah, Isaiah followed by the Twelve Minor Prophets, Jeremiah and Lamentations, Ezekiel, and lastly Daniel. Most of the apocryphal books of the Old Testament are found in the Syriac, and the Wisdom of Sirach is held to have been translated from the Hebrew and not from the Septuagint.[3]

That has nothing to do with religion.
The credit to success of some European nations or the West does not go to Christianity, the enemy of knowledge and development of mankind. The credit goes to brilliant men, who stood up against the monstrosity.
Look at the condition of other Christian countries in the European backyard, Africa and South America! They are mostly backward, poor and life is not so pleasant. Do you think it is because the Holy Spirit does not know their coordinates?
Christianity has always been a bane of humanity.
Thanks for that, bro.

Why do you keep parroting out this post-Constantine forgery in Matthew? 

Peter and the disciples never baptized in that manner. Acts agrees with me, not with Matthew.

OOPS I posted the wrong paragraph

regarding the NEW testament

Of the New Testament, attempts at translation must have been made very early, and among the ancient versions of New Testament Scripture the Syriac in all likelihood is the earliest. It was at Antioch, the capital of Syria, that the disciples of Christ were first called Christians, and it seemed natural that the first translation of the Christian Scriptures should have been made there. The tendency of recent research, however, goes to show that Edessa, the literary capital, was more likely the place.

If we could accept the somewhat obscure statement of Eusebius[6] that Hegesippus "made some quotations from the Gospel according to the Hebrews and from the Syriac Gospel," we should have a reference to a Syriac New Testament as early as 160-80 AD, the time of that Hebrew Christian writer. One thing is certain, that the earliest New Testament of the Syriac church lacked not only the Antilegomena – 2 Peter, 2 and 3 John, Jude, and the Apocalypse – but the whole of the Catholic Epistles. These were at a later date translated and received into the Syriac Canon of the New Testament, but the quotations of the early Syrian Fathers take no notice of these New Testament books.

From the 5th century, however, the Peshitta containing both Old Testament and New Testament has been used in its present form only as the national version of the Syriac Scriptures. The translation of the New Testament is careful, faithful and literal, and the simplicity, directness and transparency of the style are admired by all Syriac scholars and have earned for it the title of "Queen of the versions."

There is another name far, far bigger than that of puny Jesus. That is the LORD Almighty God Allah.
I have already simplified and made baptism easy to understand for all dummies, when I wrote:
"Peter and company baptized their colleagues under Jesus' name, so that they could be called followers of Jesus. That is all that baptizing in his name meant. "
There is no other name under heaven by which one may be saved. Salvation is in Jesus alone and at His Name every knee in the heavens, on earth and under the earth shall bow and proclaim: "Jesus Christ is Lord!!!"

The moron may agree with this:
Technically speaking Allah/God/Yhvh cannot be the alter ego of Moses by definition, but it's clear from the Torah that behind God there is Moses. This is evident by the fact that God did whatever thing Moses wished to.
LOL....
The moron may agree with this? Are you talking to yourself, now?

The Torah is made up by different sources, 4 or 5. However it's evident the influence of the priestly class in most part of that book.

I don't see Moses taking advantages from it, nor he wrote that book. We have different story with Muhammad and Quran.

I don't agree with your post, unless you bring relevant verses that show else.

If only the likes of Paul WV understood the true nature of Jesus' religion and culture, they would be less likely to persecute the Jews and Muslims.
They have not only taken the poor man out of his habitat, but have moulded him to suit their own "pagan" needs, while claiming that your scriptures give them the authority to do this!
A case of literally getting away with "murder".
The Jews were scattered be cause they didn't follow Gods instructions to them.

The Jews wanted a warrior leader like Muhammad to kill and murder for their god.
So God scattered the Jews all over the world.

Muslims got Muhammad and are the murderers of the world.
Every day some where in the world Muslims are murdering innocent God loving person.

And you x-priest call Jesus Satan for commanding to love one another instead of murdering one another.

Think Alex what you say before you say Jesus is Satan again.
