Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 256016 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?”

Then why are you still shackled in the grasp of Satan?
Why is your message a message of doom and gloom.
Why do you suppress the god news of Jesus Christ that sets a man free from the shackles of Satan?

rabbee: well conjecture on your part, is not a fact on G-D'S part.

and the message is doom, because you all are. though i rather give a better message. you all made that, impossible to give. and you have no idea, to whom you are speaking, more or less who you are really talking about.

You haven't answered this question yet.
The question is "What reason would God have to create the world and mankind"?

God does not need the world and mankind.
So why did God create the world and mankind?

You claim the Quran is Gods word, so the answer should be in the Quran.
Can from the Quran you answer that Question?

I have already done that. Scroll back and find it. Your problem is that neither you answer any question nor do you read an answer.

I have already told you that the Bible has not answered that question, Qur'aan has.

According to Qur'aan, God created humans to worship God.

What does your Bible say on this question. Zilsch!

Rabbee is not anti-Christ.

It was the Father, who was the real Anti-Christ. Had him killed for no valid reason.

For what purpose did God create the world?

In general, Scripture teaches us that God created the world and all that is in it for His own glory and because He desired to share His life with others.

The creation of all these things demonstrates His glory, His love, grace, mercy, wisdom, power, goodness, etc. Compare Psalm 19:1f; 8:1; 50:6; 89:5. Usually, people want to then know, why did God allow sin?

As a summary of some of the issues, the Bible teaches us God created both the angels and man with volition, or the freedom of choice. He created both as holy and without sin that they might not only serve Him as the Creator, but bring Him glory.

In particular, man, being created in God’s image (Gen. 1:26f), was created to have fellowship with God through the exercise of that image. Man was created to glorify God through the exercise of his personality—mind, heart, and will.

With his mind he was to know God, with his heart he was to love God, and with his will, in response to his understanding and love of God, he was to choose for God in obedience.

But God did not create robots. That would have brought very little glory to God. Because His creatures were not robots, there was the risk of a negative choice. But God, by His sovereign will, purpose, and foreknowledge, determined to allow this, indeed, He ordained it by His own eternal wisdom without Himself being the cause.

Many struggle with this, but in the process of all that has occurred, God’s glory is supremely revealed in all His Holy attributes—His holiness, righteousness, justice, mercy, grace, and love, veracity, truth, etc. God did not cause the creature to sin.

If the creature was to really have the freedom to know, love, and choose for God and respond in worship and obedience as a free and independent agent, he had to have true freedom of choice.

Thus, compare the temptation of Eve by the devil. He attacked her knowledge and understanding of God to get her to doubt God’s love, etc. The race fell because of Adam and Eve’s negative response to the grace of God.
But in the process, God’s character and glory is revealed in a more total or complete way.

So, through the cross, man’s sin, like diamonds reflecting the light against the backdrop of black velvet, reflects God’s love, mercy, grace, holiness and justice in infinite ways.

Finally, the Bible clearly shows us that God has perfectly provided for us so that we can be reconciled to Him, walk with Him and even overcome sin’s power through the finished work of Christ on the cross and the many blessing we have in Him.

In this regard, there are three aspects or phases to the salvation God offers us in Christ—the past—by faith in Christ, we are saved from the penalty of sin; the present—we are being delivered from the power of sin (if we will walk by faith and in fellowship in Him); and the future—saved once and for all from the presence of sin with the return of Christ.

So we can’t blame God. He has made more than sufficient provision for us and our sin problem even to the point of giving us His Son.

I do believe THE G-D who created the universe and Adam and I know Adam remembered all names.
My G-D is no less TRUTH than yours.

DEAR LOVING "CHRISTIAN......

GOSPEL "according to" Luke Chapter 23:

A) NIV:
28Jesus turned and said to them,“Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29For the time will come when you will say,‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore (note carefully!!) and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30Then “&#8239;‘they will say to the mountains,“Fall on us!”and to the hills,“Cover us!”

B) NLT
28But Jesus turned and said to them,“Daughters of Jerusalem, don’t weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29For the days are coming when they will say,‘Fortunate indeed are the women who are childless (note CAREFULLY!), the wombs that have not borne a child and the breasts that have never nursed.’ 30People will beg the mountains,‘Fall on us,’ and plead with the hills,‘Bury us.’

C) ESV
28But turning to them Jesus said,“Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29For behold, the days are coming when they will say,‘Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore (note carefully!) and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30Then they will begin to say to the mountains,‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills,‘Cover us.’

D) KJV
28But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that never bare (Note carefully!!), and the paps which never gave suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

QUESTION to loving "Christians":
Why do you think the above run contrary to the idea..
"god in the form of his mangod son, died willingly lovingly & unconditionally for the sins of all mankind including gentiles" AND smashes that idea into a zillion worthless pieces of fool's gold?

Thank you.

Regarding Matthew 26:63...

" ..that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ,(COMMA), the son of god", do you not think that the ignorant writers made a FUNDAMENTAL ERROR which helps destroy your claims about BJ’s divinity?

Can you spot it??

Hi Y'all!!!
This is a great time to let you know that our next woman in the white house, our POINT LADY OF TH SWORD OF GOD, the beloved Bachman has proven once and for all that the earth is 6, 428 years old and that there are only 623,496 people on the planet and that these people are drugged and moved here and there so that when you go there it looks like a lot of people are there who have hnagovers and want money from you in gobble-de-gook languages and this is only because they are too befuddled to speak and tired from being moved around and that is why you always have a stomach upset when you visit these lands and everybody there is dirty and smells bad and dont make sense and holler a lot because they are always on the move to keep this hoax going and that GOD, the true GOD of the GOSPELS is NOT a bank wher you can run when you need stuff and get refused because you dont have credit but you really need the money prayers answered but just dont get it. Now god wants all medicare to stop and god wants all retirement payouts to stop and god wants all wellfare to stop and god wants all unions to stop and for you to stop bothering the upper classes and demanding they do stuff they dont want to do and that is that and so there.
