We are all born without beliefs. The mind of the child is hijacked by their guardians as it was not pre-installed with beliefs by any god. And if an opinion contrary to your own makes you angry, that is a sign that you are sub-consciously aware of having no good reason for thinking as you do.

Having said that, humans have a tendency to conform to whatever group they belong to, even if those views are unfounded and irrational. Religion lies to children & the uneducated and that is reprehensible. Fear is one of the main sources of superstition and main source of cruelty.....fear of the unknown. Religion divides people and that is why it is lethal.

I disagree. When I was born I was under attack by my mother's blood. I was what they called then, "an Rh baby." See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wi ki/Rh_disease I remembered this experience that required a complete blood transfusion. It became a recurring nightmare that persisted until I was 3 years old or so, of me, beholding an infinite field, and being savagely attacked by "things" that I can't describe. The attack would pause...and then resume with the same ferocity. My parents would tell me later that they could NOT waken me from this state of terror that I endured. Only much later would I DEDUCE that this had to entirely with my birth experience, and the transfusion. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

IOW, I remembered being born, and I BELIEVED in what I "saw."

Through the priest hood God took an active roll in the lives of his people.
And in the NT God sent His son Jesus as the incorruptible high priest replacing the Levitical priest, initiating an everlasting eternal priesthood for the Forgiveness of sins.
Through the Holy Trinity of God, God continues to play an active roll in the life of his people.
Through the Trinity of God, God is able to be omnipresent, meaning be in Heaven and here on earth at the same time and live in the heart and mind of His people through His Holy Spirit.
And at the same time His Holy Spirit gives witness to the Father of our good and evil deeds.
The oneness of Allah cannot be omnipresent, meaning Allah is out side of the universe and cannot be here on earth at the same time.
So by reason and logically Allah is not a God.
See this one sided response?

I asked what proof you have that Abraham and Moses got revelation from God?

Instead of answering that question, you started to make God as a party?

Is that not diverging from the issue?

Provide us proofs you have that Abraham and Moses got revelation from God?

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-102

When he heard this the governor marvelled greatly, so that he sought to set him at liberty. The governor therefore went out, and smiling said:'In the one case, at least, this man is not worthy of death, but rather of compassion.''This man says,' said the governor,'that he is not Jesus, but a certain Judas who guided the soldiery to take Jesus, and he says that Jesus the Galilean has by his are magic so transformed him. Wherefore, if this be true, it were a great wrong to kill him, seeing that he were innocent. But if he is Jesus and denies that he is, assuredly he has lost his understanding, and it were impious to slay a madman.'

Then the chief priests and elders of the people, with the scribes and Pharisees, cried out with shouts, saying:'He is Jesus of Nazareth;, for we know him; for if he were not the malefactor we would not have given him into your hands. Nor is he mad; but rather malignant, for with this device he seeks to escape from our hands, and the sedition that he would stir up if he should escape would be worse than the former.' Pilate (of such was the governor's name), in order to rid himself of such a case, said:'He is a Galilean, and Herod is king of Galilee: wherefore it pertains not to me to judge such a case, so take you him to Herod.'

Accordingly they led Judas to Herod, who of a long time had desired that Jesus should go to his house. But Jesus had never been willing to go to his house, because Herod was a Gentile, and adored the false and lying gods, living after the manner of the unclean Gentiles. Now when Judas had been led thither, Herod asked him of many things, to which Judas gave answers not to the purpose, denying that he was Jesus. Then Herod mocked him, with all his court, and caused him to be clad in white as the fools are clad;, and sent him back to Pilate, saying to him,'Do not fail in justice to the people of Israel!'

And this Herod wrote, because the chief priests and scribes and the Pharisees had given him a good quantity of money. The governor having heard that this was so from a servant of Herod, in order that he also might gain some money, feigned that he desired to set Judas at liberty.

Whereupon he caused him to be scourged by his slaves, who were paid by the scribes to slay him under the scourges. But God, who had decreed the issue, reserved Judas for the cross, in order that he might suffer that horrible death to which he had sold another. He did not suffer Judas to die under the scourges, notwithstanding that the soldiers scourged him so grievously that his body rained blood.

Thereupon, in mockery they clad him in an old purple garment;, saying:'It is fitting to our new king to clothe him and crown him': so they gathered thorns and made a crown, like those of gold and precious stones which kings wear on their heads. And this crown of thorns they placed upon Judas' head, putting in his hand a reed for scepter;, and they made him sit in a high place.

This happens, when you tell a lie and you don't know how to write.

As a pagan, you should have written the same in the following manner:

"Jesus is God.

There is no other God besides Jesus."

You can also add another foolish line this way:

"The other God besides God, is Jesus."

And to make it sillier, you can write:

"The other God besides God, is only Jesus."

But then what about the third fictitious character, the Ghost?

Which ever way you write, we will call it ridiculous and absurd!

Anyway, carry on lying.

<quoted text> Salaamz O wonderous wazeer. I have always been impressed with your natural inclination towards civilized candor,and do appreciate your responses.

Here,s another pointed fact that ALLAH never sanction'd; C 140 A.D. a monk named Marcion of Rome begins teaching of two gods(this may be the first authorized use of the term Father in reference to the Almighty),ABBA the kind and loveing Father-God,vs Yahweh The cruel dessert God.During his appointed tasks of writeing scripture he keeps only 10 letters from Paul,2/3rds of luke,and allows his anti semetic side to overcome logic by attempting to delete any and all references to jesus,s Jewishness! Fortunately the pope of the times intervenes,confiscates all Marcions writeings and forces the mainstream church to decide on a core-canon. Another "banner" example of the misled trying to mislead.LOL! CheerZ
Thank you, Rabbeen

Actually, Marcion, Tertullian, Justin, Polycarp, Melito, Theophilus, Jerome, Arius, Athanasias and all were heretics.

Martin Luther was quite fond of Marcio and continued the practices of the heretic Marcion. Some say that Marcion was the first protestant.

I cracked up when I read that Tertullian called Marcion a turncoat. Pot calling the kettle black.

The fighting among all was the Grand Prelude to the Council of Nicaea, called by a pagan emperor, who only wanted to strengthen his empire, not God's kingdom.

All the writings from above-mentioned men show that most were at each other's throat and nobody knew exactly what Jesus taught, who he was and what the disciples followed.

Jesus proved He is God by performing acts and deeds that only God Himself can do for us here on earth.

Jesus is never recorded in the Bible as saying the precise words,“I am God.”

That does not mean, however, that He did not proclaim that He is God. Take for example Jesus’ words in John 10:30,“I and the Father are one.” We need only to look at the Jews’ reaction to His statement to know He was claiming to be God. They tried to stone Him for this very reason.“… you, a mere man, claim to be God”(John 10:33).

The Jews understood exactly what Jesus was claiming—deity. Notice that Jesus does not deny His claim to be God. When Jesus declared,“I and the Father are one”(John 10:30), He was saying that He and the Father are of one nature and essence.

John 8:58 is another example. Jesus declared,“I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born, I am!” The response of the Jews who heard this statement was to take up stones to kill Him for blasphemy, as the Mosaic Law commanded them to do (Leviticus 24:15).

John reiterates the concept of Jesus’ deity:“the Word was God” and “the Word became flesh”(John 1:1, 14). These verses clearly indicate that Jesus is God in the flesh.

Acts 20:28 tells us,“Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” Who bought the church—the church of God—with His own blood? Jesus Christ.

Acts 20:28 declares that God purchased His church with His own blood. Therefore, Jesus is God!

Thomas the disciple declared concerning Jesus,“My Lord and my God”(John 20:28). Jesus does not correct him.

Titus 2:13 encourages us to wait for the coming of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ

2 Peter 1:1 &#9658;
New International Version (©2011)
Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:

In Hebrews 1:8, the Father declares of Jesus,“But about the Son He says,’Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.’”
The Father refers to Jesus as “O God” indicating that Jesus is indeed God.

In Revelation, an angel instructed the apostle John to only worship God (Revelation 19:10).

Several times in Scripture Jesus receives worship (Matthew 2:11, 14:33, 28:9, 17; Luke 24:52; John 9:38).
Jesus never rebukes people for worshiping Him. If Jesus were not God, He would have told people to not worship Him, just as the angel in Revelation did.

There are many other verses and passages of Scripture that argue for Jesus’ deity.

The most important reason that Jesus has to be God is that if He is not God, His death would not have been sufficient to pay the penalty for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2). A created being, which Jesus would be if He were not God, could not pay the infinite penalty required for sin against an infinite God. Only God could pay such an infinite penalty. Only God could take on the sins of the world (2 Corinthians 5:21), die, and be resurrected, proving His victory over sin and death.
