Who Is Allah?

There are 256357 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?”

I don't dance at all. I am very blunt! And I do respond to posts that catch my attention.
An example:
Your post # 177687 on page 8379 and you wrote:
"Didn't Jesus say he would die so that sins may be forgiven?"
I replied in my post # 177698 on page 8380 and wrote:
"No, Jesus did not.
Where and when did he say that? Please quote the exact verse!"
It was a very important question and you did not reply. Why?
What sort of behavior is that? As far as I am concerned, I do reply.
Well said, brother.
I am waiting for his replies to these very simple questions?
- Are you a Christian?
(To which he says he is a follower of Christ or Jesus! Is he ashamed to be Christian? Then he goes on to talk about his own way of interpreting the gospels (or gossip-lies or gossip hell). He creates his own religion to suit him....!)
- Is Jesus your God?
(He then runs off)
- Do you worship Jesus?
(He runs off)

why was Jesus leaving in a hurry?
because he got scared and panicked,
"I have to go now. The anti-christ is coming as we speak!"
so without even saying goodbye to his grieving mother, he quickly ran away to the safety of his father's mansion
facing off the arch-enemy is out of the question for such a wimp ass
What was this great suffering by BJ??
2 hours of being kiccked about a bit, stripped naked, going on a pole and quickly coming down before start of shabbat?
After hiding in a comfy "Joseph of A." tomb for one or two nights,...getting out naked to bang 7 "demons" off poor mary...run off to scare the crap out of his old mates, grab their food...and then run of to daddy's mansion to live in comfort forever??
He was a wimp who could not put up with a tiny bit of suffering like a real man!
He CRIES out to "daddy"..."dadd y".....and rus off.

Many human beings suffer a GREAT deal more than this malingering BJ, woh has been MARKETED by liars a a GREAt sufferer.

Al-EX and bmz,

Not that you believe that Jesus actually said the following, because it isn't recorded in Mohammad's Hate Manifesto:

Matthew 26:26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying,“Take and eat; this is my body.”

27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,“Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."

We do not believe Jesus said that.

The language is crude and was perhaps inserted by an overzealous pagan convert or scribe, who was copying Mark. Luke and Matthew copied Mark wholesale (about 90%), so they included it.

It is only found in the fools' manifesto. I mean in Mark, Luke and Matthew. Looks like John was not there, otherwise he would have also reported it.

Was this reported by John?

My interpretation:

Jesus was fed up of his disciples and perhaps in a fit of anger said, "Chew me up or eat me up and drink my blood!"

This style of delivery can be found in Persian, Indian and other Oriental languages. The Church might have found it obscene and gave it a new twist.

Matthew 26:26 appears to be a 5th Century forgery.

WHO IS AN ATHEIST?
While the standard definition of an atheist is one who does not believe in God - yes, the extra-cosmic, anthropomorphic, anthropopathic, creationist deity is pure fiction - from another perspective, an atheist is a crass materialist who believes or who assumes that sentience somehow arose from insentient matter. What a shocking paradox! How naive!
The standard definition of an atheist is one who doesn't believe in god, god meant in the most widest sense, and not only refered to the extra-cosmic, anthropomorphic, anthropopatic creationist deity.

There are atheists that are crass materialistic and others who are not. Being crass materialistic has nothing to do with being atheist, as naively believed by you.

Actually, if you knew the least of Science, matter that you deeply lack of, you would have known yet that life arose from insentient matter to sentience. The issue is on how? This thing has nothing to do with religion, but with one's knowledge of Science. For instance a religious person can answer to the question of the how, by saying "god did it", while an atheist, who rejects the belief of god, may be not interested in Science at all, and ignore the issue of how life arose and claim to not know. By your standard then I have to assume that the religious person is an atheist, because believe life arose from insentience to sentience while that atheist is not an atheist, because ignore that issue, hence doesn't believe it. What a colossal paradox! Until today is still UNKNOWN how life arose from insentient being to sentience.

Even today you have not lost the occassion to show how ignorant you are.

Religion from the Latin "religare" means to bind, to yoke or to unite. Unite with what?- With the unregenerate passions. So, religion is all about the consciousness getting immersed with the play of the lower emotions or the baser passions.
Aside the fact that is uncertain the etymology of the word religion, but assuming you are correct, then to bind or to unite means to unite man with god. What kind of stupid question is "unite with what?

You can't neither answer to the most basic question that even child can answer, and because of your deep ignorance, you due to invent that religion is about to unite consciusness with emotions. LOL

It's doesn't say the sky will fall it says the stars will fall. Didn't the God that talks to you impart his wisdom on you and tell you this? And as far as the heavens being rolled up like a scroll, I don't think it literally can and John of revelations said so many symbolic things that we can't take anything he says literally. Do we really take the whore of Babylon on a horse with blasphemies literally? Do we take the beast with 10 heads literally? do we take a lamb with blood on it opening the scrolls literally? How does a lamb open scrolls? Have you read it?
But 69:16 in the Quran is quite literal and I can prove it. Right next to statements like this are the oceans swelling up and the mountains being crushed. Are those statement not to be taken literally as well? Of course they are literal. How come God doesn't guide you on such matters to know the clear difference between symbolic language and literal language?

Hello dear fellow human but a nutcase christian...
Why would ANY man say such a load of rubbish?
This is clearly a pagan/cannibalsitic approach?
Why would a decent man of god tell his close friends/relatives to EAT his raw/baked/cooked flesh and DRINK his fresh/fermented blood?
ONLY SATAN can say such things.

BJ was fed up...he knew he was in trouble...his mates were clueless after days/nights/years/hours of teaching...so he threw in the towel..AND SAID.hey morons,...just eat me up, drink my blood and be done with it..as am a spent force..i am finished..(unless God saves me from you lot and the jewish/roman mob!!

Well Muslims should believe that what Jesus said.
For with out belief in The Lords Table Muslims are not written in Gods book of life.

You are dumb Muslin.
Muslims think that rejecting the words of Jesus that they are rejecting Christianity, well that too, but they are also rejecting God.

Islam has been slain from the foundation of the earth.
God for knew the evil of Islam and ordained it to the fires of hell.

Jesus warned about the false teaching of Islam in the Gospels.
Muslims unbelief is a sign and verifies the truth Jesus spoke.
Glory to God in the highest.
Heaven and earth are full of your glories.
