Who Is Allah?

There are 256266 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, that is not what you had said earlier.
You should stick to what you said and re-write: "The language of the native people of the land of Greek is Greece".
These are the words I posted.
Greece is the language of Greek speaking people.
So the Apostle Andrew it appears spoke the Greek language.

Greece is the native land of the people that speak the Greek language.

Greece is a language translated as Greek.

The ancient Greece language is a composition of the Greek alphabet
to form words relating to its people to form a language called Greek.

V Maccabees.
I.
There are four books which pass under this name—I, II, III, and IV Maccabees. The first of these is the only one of the four which can be regarded as a reliable historical source.
I Maccabees: The First Book of the Maccabees covers the period of forty years from the accession of Antiochus (175 B.C.) to the death of Simon the Maccabee (135 B.C.). Its contents are as follows: Ch. i. 1-9 is a brief historical introduction; i. 10-ii. 70 treats of the rise of the Maccabean revolt; iii. 1-ix. 22 is devoted to the Maccabean struggle under Judas; ix. 23-xii. 53, to the fortunes of Israel under Jonathan; xiii. 1-xvi. 24, to the administration of Simon. The events are followed with intense interest and sympathy. At times the enthusiasm of the writer rises to a high pitch and breaks out into poetry of a genuine Semitic character (comp. iii. 3-9). The style is simple, terse, restrained, and objective, modeled throughout on that of the historical books of the Old Testament. The fact that just proportions are observed in treating the different parts of the narrative proves the author to have been a writer of considerable skill. He dates all events in terms of the Seleucid era.
Original Language.
It is clear from the Semitic idioms which occur throughout the work that it was composed in a Semitic language (see, for example, ii. 40, iv. 2), and certain passages indicate with great clearness that the original language was Hebrew (see ii. 39, iii. 19). To this fact Origen and Jerome also bear testimony, though it is possible that the version or paraphrase known to them was Aramaic.

The Hebrew original seems not to have borne the name "Maccabees," though it is not known what was its real designation. Eusebius ("Hist. Eccl." vi. 25) quotes Origen as authority for the name &#931;&#945;&#961; &#946;&#951;&#952; &#931;&#945;&#946; &#945;&#957;&#945; &#953;, a name which has been explained in many different ways. For some of these see Grimm ("Das Erste Buch der Makkabäer," p. xvii.). Dalman ("Grammar," p. 6), whom Torrey (Cheyne and Black, "Encyc. Bibl.") follows, takes the name as a corruption of (= "Book of the Hasmoneans"). If this be the correct interpretation, an Aramaic translation of the book must have been made at an early time, and it was this translation which was known to Origen and Jerome—a view which does not seem improbable. Be this as it may, the Hebrew was translated very early into Greek, and the Greek only has survived. The Greek version seems to be a literal one, often preserving the Semitic, and sometimes even the Hebrew, idiom; but it is clear, and probably it is, on the whole, a satisfactory translation.

Those books represent the fall and rise of the Jews in history.
Not much different the history recorded in the OT.

But it does reveal that the Jews found it worthy to pray for the dead.

A thing that Christians also find worthy to do.

Does your quitting the integral yoga have anything to do with your Master letting you down, big time? Also, what joy is there for you in earning "big money" when you know that it's all an illusion?

Jesus revealed the triune nature of God, because there is no way the human mind alone could have known this. God wants to be worshiped in His triune nature.

There are muslims who do believe allah has a body like any other human being. muslims have no clue who/what allah is. I know what allah is; it is the mohammad's alter ego.
If one wants to learn how to bull shit about religion and God, one must learn it from the Christians.

It is Horse Shit and absurd to say that Jesus revealed the triune nature of God and that God wants to be worshipped in triune nature. This is really a pile of horse shit and manure.

Jesus never revealed this absurdity. He is not on record for saying anything that the Church and her monsters said. There is nothing from Jesus on Trinity or this absurd triune nature of God. Absolutely rubbish!

The idiotic minds that came up with the triune rubbish could never explain their confusion and neither can you.

No Muslim believes that. Such Horse Shit can only be found in Christianity.

If Jesus had said himself that God was a trinity or triune, I can safely say that your biblical Jesus was a bloody fool! Sorry for being brutal but that is the truth.

Christianity is based on lies and nothing but lies from wicked men. For every damn thing said about Jesus, there is nothing from Jesus to support idiotic claims.

How long can you guys keep that fraud trinity alive?

How long are you going to fall for the lies of a seventh century uneducated war lord? The heresy that Jesus is not God was settled at the Council of Niacea in 325 AD. mohammad tried to resurrected an old heresy. Jesus revealed to us the triune nature of God because that is how God wants to be worshipped.
