Who Is Allah?

There are 220758 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?”

But G-d did not say to his partner: "Let us make a Son in our own image".

And G-d also never said to his partner: "Let me beget a Son from you."

Hello,
I was never a Christian.
Born again is a useless word. Jesus wanted people to turn to God and repent.
That sums the law and the prophets.
This is to certify that the New Testament is imperfect.
Coming from a heathen/pagan it means nothing; of course you will deny the truth of the Gospel.

I asked you to explain HOW your god made a son.
Are you not being disingenuous...when you say "son of god" while you "mean"
- God THE son
- Son THE god
Is there ANY biological connection?
Exactly how is Jesus the son of god??
I also asked you to keep your answer very precise/concise and to the point!
But you digressed!
In answer to above comments...
You make an erroneous claim that muslims worshipped many gods! Pagan arabs may have worshipped many gods but Muslims always worship ONE God.
You are correct about Jews worshipping ONE G-d.
Unfortunately your master pagans tried to change THEIR G-d into a THREE HEADED MONSTER.
Islam came to CORRECT this GRIEVOUS ERROR/INJUSTICE

So, if the word is final, you don't believe in the coming of the Messiah.[Second coming for those of the Christian faith.]
That is the final word of God, the second coming of Jesus.

Zechariah 14:5
New International Version (NIV)
5 You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake[a] in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

The final result of the Second Coming will be fulfillment of all the promises of the kingdom of God. Satan will be destroyed, and there will be no more sin, suffering or death.

And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.(NIV, Revelation 20:10)

"As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear." (NIV, Matthew 13:40-43)

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.(NIV, Revelation 21:1-4)

For doctrine all I need is the Cathecism of the Cathlic Church. The Holy Bible has been correctly interpreted through Sacred Tradition and all that is needed now is the Cathecism.
For the first 325 plus years, the Church did not have a single copy of any gospel. Gospels were picked up only after the Church was founded.

Try not to wriggle out of it ok?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A ramaic_of_Jesus
It is generally agreed that Jesus and his disciples primarily spoke Aramaic, the common language of Palestine in the first century AD, most likely a Galilean dialect distinguishable from that of Jerusalem.[1]
Most of the apostles from the Galilee region also spoke Aramaic and the towns of Nazareth and Capernaum in Galilee, where Jesus lived, were primarily Aramaic-speaking communities.
Aramaic was the common language of the Eastern Mediterranean during and after the Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, and Achaemenid Empires (722 BC 330 BC) and remained a common language of the region in the 1st century AD.
In spite of the increasing importance of Greek, the use of Aramaic was also expanding, and it would eventually be dominant among Jews both in the Holy Land and elsewhere in the Middle East around 200 AD[2] and would remain so until the Arab conquest in the 7th century.
rabbee: there was no palestine in the 1st century. the whole area was called, phlistia by the romans. which included all the area from what is called iran today to egypt.

but i am also sure, that the area controlled then by the romans. also could speak, some latin. and because of the roman conquests, that latin was growing faster than any other language. but i do not believe that the multitudes, had given up on speaking eevreet either. as eevreet is a specific, aramaic dialect. or kind of like, visiting boston.

inscribing epitaphs on tombstones/ossuaries was NOT a Jewish custom
it was adopted from the custom of the Greeks and Romans
in Jesus' days, only priveleged Jews, not the common Jews, get to have their own epitaphs engraved

You mean that the Hebrew scripture (that's a copy of the scriptures of the older occultish civilizations of the Middle East) came from the mouth of a demonic being calling itself G-d.
There are many such demonic beings giving themselves grand titles but whose teachings are based on murder, wars, rapes, baby bashing, stoning sons to death, human sacrifices, animal sacrifices, incest/hypogamy, enslavement of the weak and other evils.....

In my humble view, the Jews did something great for God, which even Jesus did not do or could not foresee or could not think of.
It is also possible that Jesus led the crook Paul away from the holy land and diverted him to pagans' lands, thus saving his own religion and the religion of his Israelite brothers.
They dispatched Paul to Damascus and saved their religion, which was also the religion that Jesus followed faithfully. The disposal of Paul, saved Judaism. And for doing that, God must be happy.
God has made that small minority so strong that all of you cannot move any of your muscles against them.
Before every US Presidential election, candidates must go and address the Jews first for approval.
See how powerful God has made them over you? God has ensured that you repeat your allegiance every year to them. From your own mouths, come the words, "Israel is our best friend" and that is how God has made sure that you Christians can never trouble the Jews again at all.
rabbee: mythological conjecture, is never humble. and 'jews' are so strong, that not even 2billion muslems. can drive 7 million of them, out of Ysrael. as only a fool would think, they can drive the alleged as jews out of Ysrael. when G-D says they are there to stay, till the end of this same again story.

Duh, the Gospel is not some text but the preached Word of God. Preserving the writen Gospels was just an after thought and not a necessity. Even without the Holy Bible God's Word would have went on. Did Jesus write anything down? No! Yet His Word went on.

WARNING:

If a scripture begins with the words, "God says....," know for certain that it's a demonic being claiming to be God.

God is NOT the Absolute.

G-d or God is simply a minor being, a formation, of the cosmic manifestation, while the Absolute is the ultimate source of God and the rest of the cosmic manifestation.
