Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Brussels Journal

“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?”

From the desk of Soeren Kern on Fri, 2007-08-24 11:56 Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society. via The Brussels Journal

A cowardly ploy.
You have no response to facts that contradict your bullshit.
In the time of Christ most Jews spoke Greek, including Jesus.
That is why the Gospels are in Greek, because Jesus mostly preached in Greek so that the Jews could understand him.
This is a New Angle that Jesus spoke Greek!!

Then what about those words of Jesus preserved in Aramaic in the Gospels?

Just displaying his "dual language skills"?

How you translate 'Eli, Eli Lama Sabaqtani" in Greek?

The problem is when you speak one lie, to justify it you have to speak more than hundred lies and still the lie will be lie!!

Why malign the name of Jesus and involve him into controversy about which he knew nothing?

Christianity is already weakest of world religions to justify the "innovations of St. Paul"....why you want to weaken its further by "manufacturing truth"?

Shows God's Catholic Church - the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - never was a fundie church; Jesus did not hand out bibles. This makes your whole method of argument moot since it relies on a fundie interpretation of Sacred Scripture. Sacred Scripture can only be properly understood through Sacred Tradition.
Bible as we know today was "most certainly" not existing in the times of Jesus!!

It was not a bound book in his time and the copies were not so easily available as to be given as a "hand out"?

There were scrolls for each book and it was a prized possession, I doubt if many people in the city had "all the scrolls of OT books with them".

What new angle???
Christ lived in a Hellenised world.
This has been known for 2000 years.
The Jews of the time of Christ spoke Greek.
The gospels were written in Greek.
The words "Eli, Eli Lama Sabaqtani" are the only time he is quoted as speaking anything other than Greek, and then it is translated into Greek.
Face it wog, your bullshit about Greek being "non scriptural" is a joke.

All of this started with BMZ's comment that Greek was not a scriptural language. Furthermore, Eric pointed out that the NT is not a revealed text.

Nothing of consequence has been introduced by those posters to alter any of the above statements of fact.

A revealed text preaching mumbo jumbo and evil means nothing. Tanakh, NT, Quran, Ramayana and certain Puranas fall under this category. The language of revelation counts for nothing, content is everything.

MENGAL - The bones remain buried and hidden after the body has rotted. Cremation still leaves bones and fragments scattered unless ashes are collected and stored properly.

The new testament "scriptures" are written in Greek. Therefore Greek is a scriptural language.
Duh.
The new testament is a collection of Christian texts, some historical and some revealed, including the great revelation called Revelations.
Is Revelations a "revealed text" do you think???
Sheesh.

JOEL - Do you think evolutionary forces will throw up the new species through man by an act of emergence of the involved ranges of consciousness and energy?

MENGAL - No.
Why not?

How did the species arise? From nothing? How?

So, you naively believe that the universe as it is is the final expression of an extra-cosmic and anthropopathic God who created it from nothing?

Is the first word the last word?

What do you understand by the term - evolutionary forces?

MENGAL - Death will always remain there, regardless of any plane.
LOL.

That's an observation and a baseless speculation.

I asked - WHY is death an inevitability till now? I want to know the reasons underlying death.

JOEL - Is reincarnation possible given the cyclical nature of everything that we see around us?

MENGAL - No. Recycling is only for materials, not for birds, beasts, fish and humans.
I asked if reincarnation of the released consciousness and energy of an individual is possible after death since everything in nature progresses in cycles in keeping with the causal laws.

If there's nothing like nothing, as you say, then, why do you believe in creation from nothing as preached by that dumb fu-ck, who authored the Quran? Is creation from nothing possible? how?

Ripe comment from someone who can not read the native text. What is your basis for your judgement? a TRANSLATION made by an external party, with a theological bias, that you can not proof?
There is no logic in that.
My post explains it self.
Your main emphases is on a language and not on subject matter of its contents.

In translating Hebrew one can understand what it says.
But the underlining issue is why if the Jews understood their own language as the spoken word of God failed to obey God?

Their failure to obey God is evident that the language is less important.
For understanding the Hebrew language, it did not stop the Jews from disobeying God.

What I am saying is that it was the translations of the Apostles of the Hebrew language into other languages that spread the word of God to the people of all languages.

Its the obeying the Word of God in any language that is acceptable to God.

So what are you saying. Jesus did not hand out the bible but established the Catholic Church. To argue based solely on bible verses is a flawed approach to understanding Jesus and His mission to reconcile man to God and to open the gates of heaven.

Well he's as STUPID as a muztard.
I have just proven to you with archaeological evidence that Greek was the dominant language in the time of Jesus in the Holy Land.
Jesus lived in Nazareth, a short walk to the much larger Greek city of Sepphoris.
It would be "absurd and a big lie" if Jesus did not speak Greek very well.
This fool is making silly remarks without a full stop!

*** They haven't a brain cell between the whole bunch of "holy" church men. That's why they HAD to STEAL the books from the JEWISH people to give themselves some desperately needed credibility!

---What do they do in return by way of "thank you"?
---They believe their own made up lies and nearly WIPE OUT the Jewish race as Christ killers!!

*** There is something else this fool should know...

---If not for Islam there will be 2billion more people who would be questioning this mythical BJ asking questions like
"DID HE EXIST AT ALL?"!!!!!!!!!!

*** Now that would certainly stick a few cats among the already constipated pigeons!!!

THE TRUTH is as we all know here is that the truth is that JEESUS spoke in the language of the BIBLE. Which he wrote down during the times when he wasnt doing other important stuff at the time that took first place first because that is what he was doing then that needed to get done before writing any books. The BIBLE that has been passed down is in ENGLISH..so you gaots to know without tooo much pain in the brain that the book was written as you read it in ENGLISH. Now he dint go to no any UNIVERSTIES where they study stuff that nobody cares about or gets and they wont let you in unless you prtend you care and they want your tax dollars to pay for and to tax the upper classes for to. My state rep says we will win everything then everbody will either understand what is what or get gone.

LMAO!
Muhammad was no prophet of God.
Muslims are the wild beast of the world.
You are a Muhammadan MUQ.
Muslims preaching that Muhammad was a man of God is shameful.
St. Paul was chosen by Jesus to be an Apostle of God.
Paul was instructed and taught by the Holy Spirit of Jesus to preach the risen Jesus the Son of God.

That is the good news of the Gospels of Jesus.
