Who Is Allah?

There are 228396 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?”

Who told you that God is triune? Can you really name the ignorant fools, who said that. I don't see Jesus talking about that hoax!
How can three be only one God? The alleged three are living in an alleged Godhead.
Jesus is not the Father and not the Ghost. The Father is not Jesus and not the Ghost.
The Ghost is not the Father and not Jesus. Those three are distinct and co-equal persons.
The Christian God is only 33.3% in terms of percentage.
Jesus and the alleged Holy Spirit are also 33.3% each.
Total comes to 99.9% and this shows that these Gods do not amount exactly to 100% and there is a shortfall of 0.1%.
So, who is the 0.1% God? That is Mary, the Mother of God. Without her the Trinity does not sum up.
Why don't you read the truth about who wrote scripture in the Quran?
After the negative experiences which depressed Mohammed, Khadijah sent him to her cousin, Waraqa, to convince him that Mohammed was called to be a prophet of Allah.

Waraqa succeeded in his task and became responsible for most of the Qur’anic verses at the beginning.

Waraqa inserted Ebionite doctrines about Jesus in the Qur’an, stating that Jesus was a prophet, and that He was not crucified, but God made someone to resemble Jesus. That one was crucified because the crowd thought he was Jesus.

This doctrine was first initiated by Simon, the magician from Samaria, who later founded a heresy which took his name, Simonianism. In reality, Simon created the root for such doctrine, before it was developed by the Gnostics in later times. Here, I present Simon the magician’s idea about Jesus, which Hyppolytus reported in “The Refutation of all heresies”:

Jesus Christ being transformed, and being assimilated to the rulers and powers and angels, came for the restoration (of things). And so (it was that Jesus) appeared as man, when in reality he was not a man. And (so it was) that likewise he suffered, though not actually undergoing suffering, but appearing to the Jews to do so.[xxx][30]

The idea that the people crucified someone whom God made to resemble Jesus was embraced by some heresy-believing groups which were known to have immoral values, such as free sex and connections with occultism. Waraqa belonged to one of these cults.

For OVER !400 years Muslims gave been murdering Christians over that false scripture in the Quran.

Out of context, you can't pick and mix sections of the Quran you need to understand it and what it is referring to, for example 8:12

This verse and the verses before and after were revealed about the Battle of Badr, which occurred in Arabia in the early seventh century. A battle in which the pagans of Makkah traveled more than 200 miles to Madinah with an army of about 1000 to destroy Muslims. Prophet Muhammad peace be on him and fellow Muslims had suffered severe persecutions and torture for 13 years in the city of Makkah. And now that they had fled Makkah and found a sanctuary in the city of Madinah, they were once again threatened. The Muslim Army was only about 300 strong. God Almighty gave the order to Muslims to fight to defend their lives and faith. The enemy came to them with the intent to kill Muslims. It was a war to defend themselves and their Faith. It was a war imposed upon Muslims.

This Surah / section of the Quran is speaking about this as above

All that you have quoted are taken out of context of the exact meaning, you can't just take extracts like that you need to understand what it relates to as a whole ... What is written before and after

Really I wouldn't practise a religion which encouraged violence....

In the case of Surah 8:55 all you had to do was the read the next verse!!!!!!Let us quote 8:55 in its context:

For the worst of beasts in the sight of Allah are those who reject Him. They will not believe.
They are those with whom thou didst make a covenant, but they break their covenant every time, and they have not the fear (of Allah).(8:55-56)

That is Surah 8:55 in its CONTEXT, all the critic had to do was literally read the next passage!!!!!!!According to the context, the worst of beasts that are being mentioned in verse 55 is referring to people who keep breaking their covenants with the Muslims!!!!!!Hence it is not an unrestricted label; rather the label is restricted on the people who are breaking their covenants with the Muslims! Basically the people who make an agreement with the Muslims, yet they constantly renegade, and turn back on those agreements.

And 3:56 is speaking about going to hell if you do not believe in god... And reject god

It isn't asking Muslims to incite violence... Bit confused there

Honestly it's easy to pick out sections and take them out of context

You know for an example if you studied English Literature, when you quote from a source you cannot ignore what comes before and what comes after what you have quoted, because the quotation can be taken out of context in regards to it's actual meaning

Many have failed English literature papers or dissertations by simply taking quotations out of context ... Same applies here

And the answer is the words in scripture that reveal that God is Triune.
You are an idiot!
For you have no ability to retain scripture teaching.
I presented my scripture teachings to you many numerous times, and you cannot retain that information in your brain.
You see I know your mind, and in that sense I know you believe you are expressing intelligence by not retaining the information I give you.
In other words you are playing a game in your own mind with your self.
Believing you are out smarting every one by playing the role of an ignorant fool.
You have done this for so long that you really have become the ignorant fool that you are today.
Why should I go and hide, Shamma? I am not Jesus, who went into hiding and vanished into oblivion.

Jesus himself never presented and never showed a triune God.

So, who did that? Who were those ignorant fools, who came up with the absurdity and monstrosity known as Trinity?

I have an excellent retention. I have not seen Jesus making any of the following statements:

1. I am the son of God.

2. I am God in person or I am God in flesh.

3. I am the Father.

4. I am God.

5. Your God is a Trinity.

For the first 450 years, nobody had heard of above nonsense. The Christianity that you follow and practice, started in the 6th Century.

And whatever you tell us is nothing but bull shit.

I copy and pasted this ..

The Church started killing unbelievers as early as the 4th century. The killing (often with torture) of heretics, church splinter groups, dissenters, atheists, agnostics, deists, pagans, infidels and unbelievers was supported by almost all mainstream Christian theology for over a thousand years, starting with the intolerant St. Augustine (died 430 AD).

As soon as Christianity became legal in the Roman Empire by imperial edict (315), more and more pagan temples were destroyed by Christian mob. Pagan priests were killed.
Between 315 and 6th century thousands of pagan believers were slain.
Examples of destroyed Temples: the Sanctuary of Aesculap in Aegaea, the Temple of Aphrodite in Golgatha, Aphaka in Lebanon, the Heliopolis.
Christian priests such as Mark of Arethusa or Cyrill of Heliopolis were famous as "temple destroyer." [DA468]
Pagan services became punishable by death in 356.[DA468]
Christian Emperor Theodosius (408-450) even had children executed, because they had been playing with remains of pagan statues.[DA469]
According to Christian chroniclers he "followed meticulously all Christian teachings..."
In 6th century pagans were declared void of all rights.
In the early fourth century the philosopher Sopatros was executed on demand of Christian authorities.[DA466]
The world famous female philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria was torn to pieces with glass fragments by a hysterical Christian mob led by a Christian minister named Peter, in a church, in 415.
[DO19-25]

Mission

Emperor Karl (Charlemagne) in 782 had 4500 Saxons, unwilling to convert to Christianity, beheaded.[DO30]
Peasants of Steding (Germany) unwilling to pay suffocating church taxes: between 5,000 and 11,000 men, women and children slain 5/27/1234 near Altenesch/Germany.[WW223]
15th century Poland: 1019 churches and 17987 villages plundered by Knights of the Order. Number of victims unknown.[DO30]
16th and 17th century Ireland. English troops "pacified and civilized" Ireland, where only Gaelic "wild Irish", "unreasonable beasts lived without any knowledge of God or good manners, in common of their goods, cattle, women, children and every other thing." One of the more successful soldiers, a certain Humphrey Gilbert, half-brother of Sir Walter Raleigh, ordered that "the heddes of all those (of what sort soever thei were) which were killed in the daie, should be cutte off from their bodies... and should bee laied on the ground by eche side of the waie", which effort to civilize the Irish indeed caused "greate terrour to the people when thei sawe the heddes of their dedde fathers, brothers, children, kinsfolke, and freinds on the grounde".
Tens of thousands of Gaelic Irish fell victim to the carnage.[SH99, 225]

Yes they try to lie in the face of Jesus. They try to blame Jesus for all their extravagant theories.

Jesus might not have any idea what these Johns and Pauls were writing about him, but now they blame jesus as the authors of these strange ideas.

How would it be when they meet Jesus face to face and he says I did not know what these people wrote behind my back?
