Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story 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?”

<quoted text> All you Muslims lack comprehension skills. that's why you are all Muslims.
You fail to investigate the validity of your own prophet and where the scripture in the Quran comes from.
This shows you have no interest in knowing the truth.
But are hard core followers of a man you cannot prove is a prophet from God.
Your own writings reveal that the laws of Islam are written for protecting your way of life with the creed of Jihad.
Now by your own commitment to your own laws of Islam there is no way you can comprehend the truth of Gods Holy Bible.
You have a forged Bible and a forged God. A God, which was not shown and preached by Jesus.

Shamma,
You forgot to answer my post #172815. Let me have your view on what I wrote:
"Liar, the Police have not made any such statement.
One of the bomber has already gone to hell.
Now, tell us what should be the best way to kill the second bomber and pack him off to hell?
I suggest that he should be publicly executed by attaching an IED and blowing him to pieces in an open field. The public should be kept at a safe distance.
What say ye? "
rabbee: one has already left getting hell, and the other may follow his brother soon. and so both reside, in the grave together. left in suspended animation, to wait for the judgement to get another chance or eternal oblivion.

and the song one tin soldier, is so relevant to this whole hatefull world.

Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago,
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley-folk below.

On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep beneath the stone,
And the valley-people swore
They'd have it for their very own.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

So the people of the valley
Sent a message up the hill,
Asking for the buried treasure,
Tons of gold for which they'd kill.

Came an answer from the kingdom,
"With our brothers we will share
All the secrets of our mountain,
All the riches buried there."

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Now the valley cried with anger,
"Mount your horses! Draw your sword!"
And they killed the mountain-people,
So they won their just reward.

Now they stood beside the treasure,
On the mountain, dark and red.
Turned the stone and looked beneath it...
"Peace on Earth" was all it said.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Muslim terrrorists who murder, maim and set off bombs to kill non-Muslims are doing so in the name of Allah. They make their intentions and source of inspiration crystal clear. Their thoughts, words and deeds are completely guided by the foul teachings of the Quran and their role model is the fanatical, deluded , murderous and demon-worshipping asura, Muhammad.

If the Father or God of Jesus is the Babylonian deity EL (that the Hebrew patriarchs worshipped after borrowing it from the baal-moloch worshipping people of the Middle East), then, poor Jesus is to be pitied since as well known El is simply a murderous Baal. The Islamic Allah is the same Babyllonian El because the teachings of the Quran are as evil as the teachings of the Tanakh and, as stated earlier, the vile contents of the Tanakh are direct copies of the demonic teachings and sadistic observances of the pre-Hebrew Baal-Moloch worshipping cults of the Middle East. ROFL.

Bull Shit!
Illiterate and unschooled means they could neither read nor write. So, everything written under Peter and John, was not written by the two illiterates. 60% of letters in the New Testament are confirmed forgeries, excluding the forgeries in the gospels.
Jesus himself could not write, so how do you expect the two illiterate men to write letters and books?
They were Taught by the Holy Spirit of God.
You are a Muslim. you lack having the Holy Spirit in you to enlightened you to the knowledge of truth.

You have the spirit of Muhammad in you, so you have the spirit of falsehoods in you.

You worship Muhammad's jinn devil god called Allah.
I received the Holy Spirit of God from my LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.

God never said that Jihad is the way for Muslims.
So Muslims love Muhammad more then they love God.

The whole Quran is a contradiction of Gods Holy Bible.
Muslims don't care about the false teaching of Muhammad.
To be a Muslim as you no doubt are, you must love Muhammad more then you love your life.
The laws of Islam are made by Muhammad to protect the life style of Muhammad.

If you don't obey the laws of Muhammad one cannot be a Muslim, for Muhammad's laws make Muhammad equal to the Muslim god Allah.

Even the alleged Holy Spirit did not know how to read and write. What did it write?

To read and write, one needs to go to school. Peter and John were unschooled.

And what exactly did this Holy Spirit teach that Jesus did not teach? I don't see that thing teaching anything.

What you need in your heart and mind, is the fear of God.

You have received nothing. I don't see anything of the good sort.

Everyone is born once. You cannot be born again.

Jesus wanted you to repent sincerely and to turn to God and that you be righteous.

1 Corinthians 1:23 is Paul's bull shit. He is the one, who preached the ridiculous resurrection.

Muslims love God more than Muhammad. It is you, Christians, who love Jesus, a mere mortal, more than the Father, who created the creature Jesus.

You should wipe out the word God from your texts and memory and replace it with Jesus. I strongly suggest that God should be eliminated from Christianity.

<quoted text>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?
Surely this ISN'T what you meant...
But I didnt say the ten commandments was an arbitrary benchmark. I said Mans organized response to Gods calling was the arbitrary benchmark. Dont you see the difference? The first is the word of God, and the second is the response. You can not take the humanism or the interpretative component out of the latter, which is why it is arbitrary.

Yes, God said honor your father and your mother. But what does that mean? How do you do that? That is religion.

Reading your holy book, it looked like that religion is how your G-d organized the relationship with Abraham and his seed... you know the promises and all the laws he gave to you guys, rather than how man does it.
<quoted text>
Reading your holy book purity does come from your G-d, and its not an arbitrary benchmark created by man. But this WASNT what you meant
There is no proper word for religion in Hebrew. The closest we have is "the law". Religion, the concept, came later, from Greek philosophy.

The earlier musing was regarding Bufords use of the word purity. My understanding was that he was offering a Christian definition

"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)

The Jewish religion does not share that concept of purity. Observing the law is a way to effectuate a sacred bond and not to effectuate purity, and it is linked to performing wordly activities, not in avoiding them.

Secondly, the goal to perform such activities is not to expunge sin, as in the case on several Christian theologies, as Jews do not share the concept of original sin either.

You got problems.
You are not born again.
In John 3:3, the term “born-again” literally means “to be born from above,” is what happens by Jesus sending His Spirit to those who respond to the gospel. The very essence of regeneration is by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. It is an unseen work that one receives when they believe, they are then sealed with the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13).

Born of God” To be begotten of God- to have his life, that is eternal along with the characteristics born anew is to love God and will certainly translate in loving the brethren. 1 Pt.1:22; 2 Pt.1:3 tells us we have been given His divine nature v.:5-8 “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The context of Jn. 3:5 must be related to Jesus’ previous statement in Jn. 3:3 :“Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” There is only one new birth mentioned in this verse and it is from the Spirit as other Scriptures uphold. John 3:6-7: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. "Do not marvel that I said to you,'You must be born again..”’
