Who Is Allah?

There are 219883 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?”

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

Suit yourself.
What does loneliness have anything to do with perfection? God looked on her creation and saw that it was good, not perfect. I never said God was perfect. "I have seen an end of all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad". God is only human.

In theory, nothing is keeping soldiers from exercising their freedom of religion. There have even been cases where Wiccans have held ceremonies.
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. And when one is a soldier, it is tough luck if they cant get a chaplain for their unit that meets their religion. Thats the part where I mean that soldiers dont have the same rights as civilians. A civilian can relocate to find a church or synagogue, a soldier can not.
pg 8249

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?

Why have many of the prophets been criminals who indulged in unbridled intolerance, wars, infanticide, mass murders, enslaving people, incest and other evils which only indicate that they were neither omniscient nor omnipotent with their vile actions militating against the innate laws of being and becoming?
They were false prophets.
It is evident Joe, the light in your mind is getting dimmer.
The of laws of being and becoming are based on the laws of "will or will not"
You are stuck in the will not category in your brain.
You will not allow your self to accept truth.
So your ability to reason with a rational mind has a mental block blocking out the truth.

Why do people of all religions/cults believe in the coming of a messianic figure who'll supposedly solve all the difficulties on earth when it's clear that the earth nature is evolutionary and that till date none of these so-called prophets and sages have been capable of solving a single problem facing humanity and of regenerating matter that by its very wear and tear, unplasticity and decomposition creates disease, fracture, death and suffering?
You are on the wrong track with your logic and reasoning.
The simple truth Joe, is that the truth will set you free, and you have not been able to accept truth.
You relieve your self of your own responsibility of acting upon the truth.
The simple truth is that evil is evil, and good is good.
But you have not been able to make that distinction with clarity.

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".

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.

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?
