Who Is Allah?

There are 225753 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?”

rabbee: just the fact that THEY BOTH, were not stoned to death. should have told you, They were not a false prophet. do you really think that G-D, would allow any of you to stone a true propet to death? when you cannot even stone, me to death with 5.56 or 7.62 mm high speed rocks.

chances are the prophets were sane, and the multitudes who refused to listen were not. which is so, typical for them. if you think they were sent into captivity, or dispersed that many times. because they were all sane, then you have lost all your marbles too.

i cannot find anyone, who is considered as sane today according to G-D. there is so much lying going on, all you teach is their lying insanity. i tried to defend this world, when G-D told me the whole world had gone insane. now i wished i had not, even of tied to defend any of you.

rabbee: do not forget, to tell them to go and sin no more. or remind them about the gift, you might accept. there is no point in telling anyone, you forgive their sins. if you leave out, the most important points. or the fact that you, do not offer forgiveness unless they ask to be forgiven.

Yea and Jesus rejected his offer.

And as far as keeping commandments,

If we took your approach, every human on earth would be condemned. There is no such thing as a human that has kept all of god's commandments.

THE SUBCONSCIENT:
1) The subconscient is the sink in the being wherein is stored the impressions of all our thoughts, words and actions and imprints of heredity.
2) There's a mental subconscient, a vital subconscient and a physical subconscient.
3) Then there's a collective subconscient whose station in the being is the force field corresponding to the soles of the feet from where it radiates outwards.
4) The entire personality of the person lies in this field in the soles of the feet. It can be perceived through the subtle vision.
5) Never share footwear as by doing so the traits of another person to whom the footwear belongs to enters your force fields and if his/her instincts are perverse or inferior to your own then you'll get harmed.
Your #5 makes no sense. If a man walks bare footed then the force feild of every thing that walked on that ground would enter the mans force feild and if an animal walked there then the man gets anamalistic instincts and when animals are hungry they kill and eat with no regard of what it is they kill as long as it is meat with blood which means it has a heart so your #5 is bable coming from the mouth of a babbler. If this is the koran advise it's a no wonder muslims kill innocent people. sick F--ks.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-105

Chapter 220 Jesus meets Mary and Disciples

Jesus replied, embracing his mother:'Believe me, mother, for truly I say to you that I have not been dead at all; for God has reserved me till near the end of the world.' And having said this he prayed the four angels that they would manifest themselves, and give testimony how the matter had passed.

Thereupon the angels manifested themselves like four shining suns, insomuch that through fear every one again fell down as dead. Then Jesus gave four linen cloths to the angels that they might cover themselves, in order that they might be seen and heard to speak by his mother and her companions. And having lifted up each one, he comforted them, saying:'These are the ministers of God: Gabriel, who announces God's secrets; Michael, who fights against God's enemies; Rafael, who receives the souls of them that die; and Uriel, who will call every one to the judgment of God at the last day. Then the four angels narrated to the Virgin how God had sent for Jesus, and had transformed Judas, that he might suffer the punishment to which he had sold another.

Then said he who writes:'O Master, is it lawful for me to question you now, as it was lawful for me when you dwelt with us?' Jesus answered:'Ask what you please, Barnabas, and I will answer you.' Then said he who writes:'O Master, seeing that God is merciful, wherefore has he so tormented us, making us to believe that you were dead? and your mother has so wept for you that she has been near to death; and you, who are an holy one of God, on you has God suffered to fall the calumny that you were slain amongst robbers ;on the Mount Calvary?'

Jesus answered:'Believe me, Barnabas, that every sin, however small it be, God punishes with great punishment, seeing that God is offended at sin. Wherefore, since my mother and my faithful disciples that were with me loved me a little with earthly love, the righteous God has willed to punish this love with the present grief, in order that it may not be punished in the flames of hell.

And though I have been innocent in the world, since men have called me "God," and "Son of God," God, in order that I be not mocked of the demons on the day of judgment, has willed that I be mocked of men in this world by the death of Judas;, making all men to believe that I died upon the cross. And this mocking shall continue until the advent of Muhammad;, the Messenger ;of God, who, when he shall come, shall reveal this deception to those who believe in God's Law. Having thus spoken, Jesus said:'You are just, O Lord our God, because to you only belongs honour and glory without end.'

Note: The truth of Jesus’ message is clear from every word of this narration- MUQ

The force field of the earth would absorb the imprints of those who earlier tread the same patch of ground. It works on the same principle as earthing in an electrical circuit. The physico-vital energies are closest to the gross electrical energy and so the earth would absorb every physico-vital imprint.

read again your "scripture" from the impostor John,
the Jews handed over Jesus to Pilate: "We have a law and by our law he ought to die because he made himself a son of God" (John 19:7)
no such law exists, every Jew can say he is a son of God

He was CRUCIFIED becasuse he was accused of a particular CRIME.
so what was that particular crime?

was it because he said he is a son of God?
or because he made himself out to be a king?(John 19:12)
or because he forbade the people to give tribute to Caesar?(Luke 23:2)
or because he stirred up the people with his teaching?(Luke 23:5)

Totally UNTRUE, Uhuh. Go back and read the text and when you do look at CONTEXT i.e. who was Jesus talking to, was He talking to or accusing His JEWISH disciples, was He addressing the LYING pharaohs/religious leaders etc. Also look at whether or not he was speaking of the past or future.
ok i have read Matt 23 again, basically Jesus was saying,

"You scribes and pharisees, you brood of vipers, your fathers have murdered the prophets. Therefore I will send you more prophets -some of them you will kill and crucify- so that you will bear the guilt of your fathers as well as your own."

No.

All three problems - over emphasis on religion, high population growth and excessive corruption have kept India backward. They form a triune and are as such inter-related.

I am disgusted with India and Indians - such degradation and horribly low standards in everything.

I may, in the near future, think of shifting base to Europe.

Archeology confirms the Bible teaching.
So the testimony of Abraham and Moses in the Bible confirm God talked to Abraham and Moses.
Ans.

So the "proof" has to come thru a "Link"? Will it?

Why are you shy to put those proofs are on pages so we all can see it.

Which Archeology "confirms" the truth of Bible? I think according to "real archeology"…. Moses and Jesus are "Mythical figures"!!

You are just clutching at straws, and so far you have not provided a "single proof" that God Spoke to Abraham or Moses.

You are using the "same source" (i.e. Bible) for making the claim and the same source as its proof.

This is what is called a "circular argument".

This is ALSO the first alphabet from which all of our alphabets, yours, Arabic, Greek, Aramaic, modern Hebrew... it's the ancestor alphabet.

If you're going to insist we read the word of God in the original form then you read THAT.

If you want to go there. Because if you truly believe in God, then you TRULY understand that it's no coincidence that the word was written in the ancestor script, OUR ancestral script.

Dont' come in here with Arabic this and Arabic that, when we all know Arabic is one of many descendents of the same Paleo-HEEEEBREWWWWWWW alphabet. Alep, Bata, Gimel, Dalet... Gee whiz YA THINK???
Ans.

I fail to understand what is purpose of your writing?

The same way as Humanity spread from a Single Pair (Adam and Eve)….so ALL languages in the world started from the language which Adam and Eve Spoke.

Now which language was that? Moses came many thousands of years after Adam?

So the MOTHER of all languages was thousands of years before Moses and from that language Hebrew also got developed.

And what is the point of some language being older than the other? It does not give it any superiority per see.

A lie or falsehood spoken in Hebrew is as wrong as spoken and written in English or any modern language.

And a statement of truth is as sacred irrespective of written in Oldest language or Modern language.

Speaking of a "circular argument,"

When you're not entertaining us with the fiction that is the "Gospel of Barnabas," you are using the "same source" (i.e. Qur'an) for making the claim and the same source as its proof, specifically, that Mohammad was a true prophet of Allah and not just a bloody con artist.
