Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 256266 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?”

the alleged as jews, were the first to come out with their errat new and alleged as old testament Torah.

and the rest of you, just blindly followed suit. writting your own new newer, old new, and allgeged as older testament Torah.

and very few rabbeem over the years, have ever questioned, if their is such a thing. as a new and old, testament tanach.

and the only reference, i can find to muhammeds new testament quran. is via the testimonies, of the least to the most subtle talking critters of the fields. and that is not, a compliment to muhammed or muslemanity.

Rabbee,

G-d never called any book a Testament or Bible. So, the question of an OldT or a NewT does not arise.

Another Bull Shit.
How can you expect me not to call a Bull Shit, Bull Shit, when you keep on piling more?
God always communicated with humans through the messengers, chosen to talk with us. No one has seen God.
God is still invisible and will always remain unseen till the Last Day.
If God wants to be visible and communicate direct, God has no other way but to come to earth or land on earth direct and present Himself.
Why did God create the world and us in the first place?
What is the reason for God staying invisible?

You were created to worship God and the world was created for you to live in, die and return to earth or turn into dust or ashes, only to be resurrected along with all on one Day.

You can't stand the sight of God. Remember what the people said at the Mount?

Such silly and absurd questions come from those, who want to show that Jesus was God and God made himself visible through Jesus, which is Bull shit anyway.

There is no reason for God to stay in a woman's womb, be born and turn into a pathetic man. That is beyond the Majesty of God.

God should stay invisible. If God came as a man to become visible, all of us will be laughing and ridiculing God.

The point is that Jesus was neither the son of God nor God. He was turned into God by making conclusions based on 4 silly and absurd gospels based on 3rd to 100th hand stories and a few letters written by a few men.

And this conclusion was not made by the wise and the scholarly. It was made by ignorant and confused fools, who never sat in the company of the wise and scholarly.

rabbee: what G-D knows, is not the problem here. any more than it is what i know from G-D. it is this worlds refusal to know, that is getting people murdered.

G-D and i do not appreciate, any new counterfeit testament. from TheG-D, of Only TheTorah happening is here in IT. in this world that ain't paying attention, to what G-D is commanding to happen. in this world so totally untrue to HIM here in TheTorah.

none of of this being commanded to happen, is because any one in this world is innocent. and it is a pretty sad world, when adam is the most innocent person here on earth. which is no compliment, from G-D to any or you or adam. and a hell of a lot more, innocent than you or that grandmother of you all.

so consider this carefully, you won't have any friends in the world. not after seeing, G-D. even Moshe and Aaron, did not have any friends among the multitude. not after they saw G-D, and the multitudes refused to. almost seeing G-D, does not count as seeing G-D. most people would balk, at the last second.

That is the lie of your pagan jinn devil moon god Allah.

Scripture teaches us that God created the world and all that is in it for His own glory and because He desired to share His life with others. The creation of all these things demonstrates His glory, His love, grace, mercy, wisdom, power, goodness, etc. Compare Psalm 19:1f; 8:1; 50:6; 89:5.

Psalm 19:1 A psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands

Psalm 8:1-9

New International Version (NIV)


Psalm 8[a]

For the director of music. According to gittith.[b] A psalm of David.

1 Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory in the heavens.

2 Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.

3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?[c]

5 You have made them[d] a little lower than the angels[e]
and crowned them[f] with glory and honor.

6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their[g] feet:

7 all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild,

8 the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

9 Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

2 Peter 1:3-4
New International Version (NIV)
3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

1 Corinthians 10:31 - Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Hebrews 1:3 - Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

John 11:40 - Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Colossians 1:27 - To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

The glory of God is the beauty of His spirit. It is not an aesthetic beauty or a material beauty, but it is the beauty that emanates from His character, from all that He is. James 1:10 calls on a rich man to “glory in his humiliation,” indicating a glory that does not mean riches or power or material beauty. This glory can crown man or fill the earth. It is seen within man and in the earth, but it is not of them; it is of God. The glory of man is the beauty of man’s spirit, which is fallible and eventually passes away, and is therefore humiliating—as the verse tells us. But the glory of God, which is manifested in all His attributes together, never passes away. It is eternal.

Isaiah 43:7 says that God created us for His glory. In context with the other verses, it can be said that man “glorifies” God because through man, God’s glory can be seen in things such as love, music, heroism and so forth—things belonging to God that we are carrying “in jars of clay”(2 Corinthians 4:7). We are the vessels which “contain” His glory. All the things we are able to do and to be find their source in Him. God interacts with nature in the same way. Nature exhibits His glory. His glory is revealed to man’s mind through the material world in many ways, and often in different ways to different people. One person may be thrilled by the sight of the mountains, and another person may love the beauty of the sea. But that which is behind them both (God’s glory) speaks to both people and connects them to God. In this way, God is able to reveal Himself to all men, no matter their race, heritage or location. As Psalm 19:1-4 says,“The heavens are telling of the glory of God and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands; day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their utterances to the end of the world.”

Psalm 73:24 calls heaven itself “glory.” It used to be common to hear Christians talk of death as being “received unto glory,” which is a phrase borrowed from this Psalm. When the Christian dies, he will be taken into God’s presence, and in His presence will be naturally surrounded by God’s glory. We will be taken to the place where God’s beauty literally resides—the beauty of His Spirit will be there, because He will be there. Again, the beauty of His Spirit (or the essence of Who He Is) is His “glory.”

Proofs that Gospel of Barnabas is 15th Century forgery- Part-2

Bryant-8

"Jesus drew near to the Priest (High Priest) with reverence, but he was wishful to bow himself down and worship Jesus, when Jesus cried out:'Beware of that which thou doest, Priest of the Living God! Sin not against our God!" (Chapter 93). This statement is so contrary to the New Testament, that it needs no explanation.“

MUQ:

1. How can you use New Testament to judge this Gospel?

2. Jesus’ statement is very correct on all grounds. If you have complaint against the way of writing, then it is the peculiar style of Barnabas. Does the language of John matches with other three Gospel?

3. Then do you say that John Gospel is forgery?

Bryant- 9

In Chapter 3 of the Gospel of Barnabas the birth of Christ is described as having been painless. This belief was not current in the Church before Thomas Aquinas (died 1278) but is mentioned in Sura 19:23

MUQ:

1. This is another absurd accusation. Quran does not mention that Birth of Jesus was painless, but it clearly mentions that “when Pangs of childbirth came upon Mary (19:23)”…how come you misquote Quran right on this thread?

2. This type of strange but “scholarly” writings are used to confuse common folks, who do not read frequently. How are you sure that birth of Jesus being painless , first came into he mind of Thomas Aquinas?

3. When John Just after Disappearance of Jesus, could think that God became human in person, how easy it was to say that his birth was painless?

Bryant-10

According to the Gospel of Barnabas Jesus was born when Pilate was governor, but in fact he only became governor between A.D. 26 and 27.

MUQ:

1. What does this prove? That GOB is a 15th Century Forgery?

2. Have you checked all the errors and contradictions present in the four Authentic Gospels? Are they all forgeries?

Bryant-11

“Jesus prayed five times a day according to the Gospel of Barnabas and all the Muslim prayer times are mentioned”

MUQ:

1. If Other Gospels did not mention, how many times Jesus prayed, then how can you accuse GOB of forgery on this regard?

2. Islamic names of prayers are not mentioned in GOB, only the times. Even if the names are mentioned, this could be the handiwork of some of translators or copiers, who added some words into the text.

3. This is not unique to this Gospel, but has been done to almost every book of OT and NT

Bryant-12

“Not before the Fourth Century A.D. was the title "Virgin" given to Mary, yet it appears in the Gospel of Barnabas”

MUQ:

1. It is strange for you to say that Virgin for Mary was used only in the fourth century, I have the word Virgin used for Mary used in Luke Chapter 1, V 29. Is Luke also a 15th Century Forgery?

Bryant-13

“Origen A.D. 184-254 was the first scholar to assume that Mount Tabor was the Mount of Transfiguration. The Bible does not confirm this. The Christian tradition that it was Mount Moriah begins only in the Third Century, and yet the Gospel of Barnabas contains this information.”

MUQ:

1. This is another of strange accusation, what proof you have that this idea first came into the mind of Origen?

2. What is so strange to say that Mount Tabor was the Mountain of Transfiguration? If other Gospel writers “forgot” to mention that, does it make GOB a 15th century forgery?

Bryant-14

“The Gospel of Barnabas mentions four archangels, which is also a tradition of the church that dated from the early Medieval period”.

MUQ:

1. This is another of your absurd assumptions. Like a drowning man catching straws.

His glory is revealed to man’s mind through the material world in many ways, and often in different ways to different people. One person may be thrilled by the sight of the mountains, and another person may love the beauty of the sea. But that which is behind them both (God’s glory) speaks to both people and connects them to God. In this way, God is able to reveal Himself to all men, no matter their race, heritage or location. As Psalm 19:1-4 says,“The heavens are telling of the glory of God and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands; day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their utterances to the end of the world.”
Psalm 73:24 calls heaven itself “glory.” It used to be common to hear Christians talk of death as being “received unto glory,” which is a phrase borrowed from this Psalm. When the Christian dies, he will be taken into God’s presence, and in His presence will be naturally surrounded by God’s glory. We will be taken to the place where God’s beauty literally resides—the beauty of His Spirit will be there, because He will be there. Again, the beauty of His Spirit (or the essence of Who He Is) is His “glory.”
My question was:

Did Jesus ever praise and glorify the LORD like David did through his Psalms? Any 'Poem' or 'Psalm' from Jesus glorifying the LORD?

Zilsch! Nada! Nyet! None!

Do not use stolen Scripture of others, who do not believe in your nonsense.

Please quote something which we can call the Psalms of Jesus.

We do not want to read lines from Peter, Paul, Tom, Dick and Harry.

John 17:1-5
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Prays to Be Glorified

17 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:
“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
