Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 Full story: The Brussels Journal 211,877

“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?”

The Book of Leviticus (from Greek Λευ ιτι κός , Leuitikos, meaning "relating to the Levites"; Hebrew: וי&#15 11;רא& #8206;, Vayikra, "And He called") is the third book of the Hebrew Bible, and the third of five books of the Torah (or Pentateuch). The English name is from the Latin Leviticus, taken in turn from Greek and a reference to the Levites, the tribe from whom the priests were drawn. In addition to instructions for those priests, it also addresses the role and duties of the laity.[1]

Leviticus rests in two crucial beliefs: the first, that the world was created "very good" and retains the capacity to achieve that state although it is vulnerable to sin and defilement; the second, that the faithful enactment of ritual makes God's presence available, while ignoring or breaching it compromises the harmony between God and the world.[2]

The traditional view is that Leviticus was compiled by Moses, or that the material in it goes back to his time, but internal clues suggest that it originated in post-exilic (i.e., after c.538 BC) Jewish worship centred on reading or preaching.[3][4] Scholars are practically unanimous that the book had a long period of growth, that it includes some material of considerable antiquity, and that it reached its present form in the Persian period (538–332 BC).[5]

I flatly said the Jews are like the JW, and Muslims.
Then why would you bother to state something TO ME that has no meaning to me?

Why not just mumble it in the privacy of your own abode?

What I am getting at, THINK/SKEPTIC/SHAMMA, is at the motivations behind your postings.

Obviously noone here really cares what you think.

But yet you continue on incessantly.

Is it so that you can see yourself in print?(frustrated narcissist?)

Or do you REALLY think you get cosmic brownie points for your rants?(theological brown-noser?)

Or do you need to indulge your ego into thinking that your spoofs have any intellectual merit and that they may sway someoneone?(insecure philosophist?)

Or is it merely some type of biological pathology?(Glutton for punishment, or perhaps you are one of Darwin's losers, or just a garden variety mental disease?)

It was your comment to me on:
Isaiah 43:10,11 -“You are My witnesses,” says the Lord,“And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior.”
Your comment on Isaiah 43:10,11 inspired me to make that comment.

You need t study Leviticus and understand why God set up the priesthood.

God is Impeccable.

When did I discuss the priesthood?

Jesus never conducted a prayer in the Temple and neither did he conduct a mass.

Jesus was no priest. God never set up priesthood, popehood and other religious hoods.

It is amazing to see how comfortable are you with the lies of the Church.

You worship some unknown god called Allah.
In order to understand the Gospels you need to understand the OT and the priest Hood.
And you are completely ignorant of Gods teaching in the OT.
Muslims are a disgrace to God,
Learn about the priest hood.
Leviticus:

I wrote this and you went off topic:

Let us do this one now.

When the LORD said, "and understand that I am He", the LORD did not mean it was the servant, who was the He in the verse.

"I am He" means I am the one, who is the LORD.

And the last sentence is a killer of your false God.

"I, am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior."

So, the servant or Jesus is not God and no Savior!

The Church is notoriously famous for such ridiculous forgeries. Chew on this.

You are caught with your ignorance of the God of the OT in not knowing about the priest hood in Leviticus
Again your are playing God in telling God He should not have a priest hood.
You expose your rejection of God in favor of your false prophet Muhammad.
The priest hood is Gods way of communicating with His people on Earth

I exposed you as an ignorant fool, and you are to much of an idiot to understand it.
In order to understand Jesus in the NT, you need to understand Gods priest hood.
You are trying to cover up Gods truth by calling the Gospels in the NT as forgery.
On top of it you are playing God, by telling God how to be God.
The truth is, Muhammad's religion of Islam cannot save anyone from the fires of hell.

You are conflating the issue of what I respond to with the issue of what content is meaningful to me

I could give a rats ask about that content, however because you are needlessly haughty in attitude, it invites a response

One of my favorite passages:

"besides Me there is no Savior.”

Get it? G-d alone is the savior. No priests needed. No Messiah needed. Just G-d. We have a direct relationship.

And Israel is the beneficiary:

“You are My witnesses,” says the L-rd,“And My servant whom I have chosen,"

That's what happened with the person from Malawi yesterday. She had just joined and her post had the location of her IPA. She then took it off and the first post lost the IPA location. Then she added Brazil through putting it on the motto line and all posts picked up the motto line.
