Who Is Allah?

“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

Do you want purity in your religion? This is from James 1:27, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (NIV)

Looking after orphans and widows seems clear cut enough -don't let them die in the streets- but what is keeping oneself from being polluted by "the world?" Does it mean NOT reading Lady Chatterley's Lover, for instance? What might that mean to you?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism
Wiki has a long discussion about the definition of terrorism, that there is no international legal consensus due to the fact of its emotional connotations
However, it does cite this
Hoffman believes it is possible to identify some key characteristics of terrorism. He proposes that:
By distinguishing terrorists from other types of criminals and terrorism from other forms of crime, we come to appreciate that terrorism is :
1) ineluctably political in aims and motives
2) violent – or, equally important, threatens violence
3) designed to have far-reaching psychological repercussions beyond the immediate victim or target
4) conducted by an organization with an identifiable chain of command or conspiratorial cell structure (whose members wear no uniform or identifying insignia) and
5) perpetrated by a subnational group or non-state entity.[25]
Hey, if President Obama called it "an act of terror," then that's good enough for me!

So is Judaism and Islam you moron
you really think your religion has the monopoly on relationships?
Since you put it that way, yes, Jews and Muslims are morons for rejecting the teachings of God.
God hears every ones prayers, yet many that pray to God don't listen to God speaking to them.
Their relation with God is a one way relationship that demands of God without them giving to God what God requires of them to do in return.

To get to God you must go through Jesus and accept Him into your heart because God can't be in the presence of sin and since everyone has sinned Jesus is the only way to forgive those sins and to get to God and living forever!

John 14:6, 7 - Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."

This doctrine is prominent throughout the New Testament. In his first epistle, the Apostle John summarizes why one can come to God only through Christ:

1 John 2:1, 2 - My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

God hears all prayer, but God also ask of every one to accept His Son Jesus Christ as their Savior.

According to a family member, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a devout Muslim, was kicked out of his uncle's house because of his increasingly extremist views on religion.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother Dzhokhar, 19, are believed to have placed bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding 170. Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police early Friday and Dzhokhar was badly wounded and captured by police Friday night.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev spent roughly six months in Russia in 2012, but the relative, who insisted on anonymity to avoid offending other family members, insisted the young man had been radicalized in the United States before his trip..."

Thats wasnt what I meant. Religion is what man does with the question of how to organize their relationship with G-d. Purity is a question of Mans behavior, in relationship to an arbitrary benchmark created by Man.

Wow, the Ten Commandments represent an arbitrary benchmark created by Man, while purity is how we behave in response to these arbitrary Man made rules and regs, and this constitutes a relationship with G-d?

Prologue: Please pay attention, the Gospel's End is coming and these last chapters are very important-MUQ

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-92

Chapter 201 Women caught in the act

Jesus having entered into the Temple, the scribes and Pharisees brought to him a woman taken in adultery. They said among themselves:'If he save her, it is contrary to the Law of Moses, and so we have him as guilty, and if he condemn her it is contrary to his own doctrine, for he preaches mercy.' Wherefore they came to Jesus and said:'Master, we have found this woman in adultery. Moses commanded that [such] should be stoned: what then say you?'

Thereupon Jesus stooped down and with his finger made a mirror on the ground wherein every one saw his own iniquities. They still pressed for the answer, Jesus lifted up himself As and, pointing to the mirror with his finger, said:'He that is without sin among you, let him be first to stone her.' And again he stooped down, shaping the mirror. The men, seeing this, went out one by one, beginning from the eldest, for they were ashamed to see their abominations.…

Note: This incident is found in John’s Gospel. Is it not strange that they caught the woman in the act, but where was the man?!!- MUQ

Chapter 202 Jesus’ last preaching
'Tell me, by whom is the physician more loved: by them that have never had any sickness, or by them whom the physician has healed of grievous sickness?' Said the Pharisees to him:'And how shall he that is whole love the physician? assuredly he will love him only for that he is not sick; and not having knowledge of sickness he will love the physician but little.'

Then with vehemence of spirit Jesus spoke, saying:'As God lives, your own tongues condemn your pride, inasmuch as our God is loved more by the sinner that repents, knowing the great mercy of God upon him, than by the righteous. For the righteous has not knowledge of the mercy of God. Wherefore there is more rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents than over ninety and nine righteous persons. Where are the righteous in our time? As God lives, in whose presence my soul stands, great is the number of the righteous unrighteous; their condition being like to that of Satan.'

The scribes and Pharisees answered:'We are sinners, wherefore God will have mercy on us.' And this they said tempting him; for the scribes and Pharisees count it the greatest insult to be called sinners. Then Jesus said:'I fear that you be righteous unrighteous. For if you have sinned and deny your sin, calling yourselves righteous, you are unrighteous; and if in your heart you hold yourselves righteous, and with your tongue you say that you are sinners, then are you doubly righteous unrighteous.'

..Jesus weeping answered:'O Jerusalem, O Israel, I weep over you, for you know not your visitation; because I would fain have gathered you to the love of God your creator, as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! Wherefore God says thus to you

Note: Some part of this is to be found in other Gospels also- MUQ

The silent majority of international readers do not like posters, who give off-topic responses.

I had written this, so please comment on this:

You know you are worse than the men, who penned the books and letters of the New Testament.
Your incoherence and off-topic responses matches those writers.

I had actually written this:

"It is a lie against Jesus and is also a great blasphemy against God, the true LORD Almighty.

Could you please tell us the names of those ignorant fools, who made that junk statement?

It would have been different if the Son of Mary had said that himself. And in that case, we would have declared your Jesus a lunatic person."

So, why can't you tell us the name or the names of the bloody fool or the bloody fools, who first made the statement that Jesus is God?

Surely there must have been some ignorant fools, who said that. Tell us! name those clowns, please.

As far as we are concerned, Jesus never made silly and absurd jokes such as, "I am the son of God', "I am God in flesh" or "I am God" or "I am the Father in heaven". Jesus never unloaded any of the mentioned Horse Shit.

Now, a reply to your off-topic post.

Muslims worship and pray only to the LORD God Almighty of Abraham, Israel, Moses and Jesus. And this is what Qur'aan and Muhammad taught.

I despise the term OT. I find that term disgusting. You know very well that OT was copied from translations of Tanakh. OT is full of forgeries, distortion and fraud.

That God, who gave Moses the Laws, is our God. However, that God is not your God. Yours is a fictional character that does not exist.

Any Muslim, who commits a pre-meditated murder will go to hell, fool!

The Jesus you have is a Greek Version, not the real son of Mary.

Look at the Jews! They believe in one God. Then look at the Muslims! They believe in one God.

Now look at yourself! You believe in a monstrosity, which you call the triune God and mind you, the name Trinity already shows three Gods in one Godhead. So, you cannot say that there is one God.

Abraham never spoke of a Trinity Horse Shit and neither did Moses nor Jesus. So, where did the Horse shit Trinity come from?
