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?”

Did I already post that you are crazy?
I wonder why everyone thinks I'm crazy. I could preach some things that would really make you think I'm crazy. The only thing is, all of my doctrine and theology is backed up by OT prophecy but a lot of it was kept secret and not canonized. I know a lot of these secrets because I was told them as a child in church. I could also interpret the visions and dreams in the bible for the minister and seemed to have insight and intuition. I am mental though and I will admit it. "We're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy" Seal. "The Lord is my Rock, my strength and my song".

HughBe--- Correct
Susan---and procreation is of the flesh.

Susan--- If Spirits could procreate, she never would've created Adam and Eve or this earth.
HughBe--- In essence man can do something GOOD that your God cannot do. I thought she was omnipotent.
OUTSTANDING ---
Susan B---spirits do not inseminate
HughBe--- Prove it. Cite the EVIDENCE.
Am I correct that God can create the universe but He cannot "inseminate"?
God can SPEAK and it is done and yet He cannot "inseminate"?
Recall, "And God SAID(spoke), Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so."
The seed being in itself was the potential for life in the female of the species. It's like the old riddle, Which came first the chicken or the egg? The hen and the egg were created together and the male (rooster) was created first. God created us to inhabit the earth and prove our worthiness to enter heaven. Don't forget that the angels (meek) will inherit the earth. It's the way that God designed it and I wouldn't question her abilities or motives.

Basically what you're doing Shamma, is projecting but almost everybody does it, so join the club. What falsehood have I stated about Christianity? If it's regarding salvation, you can find verses in the NT to support wherever you stand on that issue. The NT is full of contradictions and hollow, shallow theology. If you really understood the OT, you wouldn't be a Christian. Jesus is prophecied in the OT, not as the Messiah but instead as the modern day idol of Israel.

HughBe--- I take it that your comment that goes , " Their is a veil spread over the eyes of the ENTIRE WORLD " was made because the scriptures said "THIS PEOPLE".
In my opinion THIS PEOPLE is a reference to the people being spoken about and NOT the ENTIRE WORLD.
See if there is any merit in my CORRECT understanding.
I would need the chapter and verse HughBe but it probably does refer to Israel which would include the USA. Isaiah 8:14 "And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling, and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel..." I heard you are the pastor of a church in Jamaica, is that true?

I've met quite a few of those flakes already Shamma and they probably don't take their meds, they are delusional. Medicine will clear that up. I am not delusional though, I take my meds and have not been hospitalized in over 27 years. And yes, you could say I've started my own religion, it's called the truth. Daniel 8:12 "...and it cast down the truth to the ground, and it practiced and prospered" 1984 was the "acceptable year of the Lord" Isaiah 61:2. If you've ever read the book, there was a Ministry of Truth. and within the first three or so pages of the book, it contains the date April 4, 1984. That is the exact date of J. L. Emanuels' birthday.

No, ignorant fool, Jesus was not the prophet foretold in Deut 18:18 at all.

You have to go and look for verses, if any, to find if a stupid son of God was promised.

Jesus does not fit the description in Deut 18:18 at all. Yes, I read the link and found it is nothing but full of bullshit.

Your New Testament is based on a sack full of lies. Now, where can we find a prophesy to show that God had promised another God?

You've never even read it. It contradicts the Quran by saying there are nine heavens, not seven. It also talks about rolling wine in wood caskets, which was a 13th century technique and was never used during Jesus time and area. It is thought to be a purposeful forgery from around the 13th or 14th century as a sort of revenge against the Spanish Inquisition.
<quoted text>
It's people retelling a story that is supposed to have happened. Nobody ever even attempted to write a Gospel According to Jesus and Jesus never brought any book at all, contrary to what Muhammad claimed. Read Jeremiah 31 where it predicted a new covenant where the law shall be written on the hearts and minds of men, not in a book. Muhammad might have been crafty, but other than that, he was a very stupid, uneducated man with no philosophical depth at all.
Since when Quran has become your criterion of accepting or rejecting any Past scripture?

Quran contradicts so many things in other Gospels too, so will you reject all these gospels and OT books as forgeries?

The only objection against GOB is that it has not reached to us in authenticity, but the same objection is valid against every book contained in NT or OT.

Why only single out GOB?

If Jesus did not bring any "book" then why you object about True Gospels and Forged Gospels?

According to scripture, God has both breasts and a womb. You clearly do not know your OT and that's probably because you don't read it like you do the NT. You do know the OT is the basis for the NT? You should go straight to the horses mouth and make up your own mind. You must be a male or you wouldn't take such offense to the idea that God is a woman. I could give you multitudes of scripture that supports this. Eve was created as a "help meet" for Adam and was intended to rule over him. When the second and seed of Eve arrives, that purpose will be realized.

Frijoles---Where you are confused is that there are not enough chaplains to go around. That is a man(people)power issue, not a question of freedom of religion
HughBe--- Clearly the conversation is ABOVE your head. Eric, your man is trying to justify banning chaplains because there are NOT enough of them. I am saying that such justification is BS.
The issues from the start are captured below and they were NOT manpower issues. Please read slowly.
"Michael L. "Mikey" Weinstein is an attorney, businessman, and former Air Force officer. He is the founder and president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation,(MRFF) and author of With God on Our Side: One Man's War AGAINST an Evangelical Coup in AMERICA'S Military and No Snowflake in an Avalanche, both of which describe his fight against alleged coercive Christian Fundamentalist practices by some members of the military"
"In 2006, Weinstein was named as one of Forward Magazine's "Forward 50", a list of the most influential Jews in America"
"A former Air Force officer and White House lawyer during the Reagan administration, Weinstein is today a one-issue whistle-blower who has driven real change in religious policy throughout the military.
Advocating for SECULARISM in the military through the Military Religious Freedom Foundation he founded in 2005, Weinstein has fought a campaign against public prayer and proselytizing by Air Force officers...."
Question, is there a need for SECULARISM in the Israeli army?
Would the "PRINCIPLES" that he is championing apply to Israel?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_L._Weins...
Israel is not a secular nation. Its a Jewish nation that also attempts to the best of its ability to guarantee the rights of the other minority religions within its midst. Secularism is not a recognized religion.

America is a secular nation.

So the answer is no.

Also, I dont think Weinstein has a beef with religion per se, in the military. His beef is with the rampant EVANGELISM of religion. His background is from the Air Force, where this is out of control.

God has been incarnated in the body of a woman.
Now, a logical question:

If this God that you speak of has incarnated on the gross physical plane on earth then is the incarnation of this God a direct projection of Power on to the plane of matter or is it an incarnation via some intervening plane of the cosmic hierarchy?

A direct incarnation would be impossible since the intervening planes are put forth from the origin (God) and as such they share a causal relationship with this God who is their source and so if this God chose to incarnate on the gross physical plane then it would have to do so by incarnating via or through the media of the intervening planes or through any one of them.

So?

BTW, have you met the Avatar of the Age - your incarnated God in the form of a woman?

We have passed through this so many times, what's the point to repeat myself, once again, to a stubborn?

My answer found agreement with the Jews here.

I have no just said who was the prophet according to Deut 18:18 but I also have explained why the Nazarene and Muhammad can't be that.

Both the religious groups are a bunch of deluded.
