Who Is Allah?

There are 256358 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?”

Can any one understand meaning of this statement?
God came down from heaven "In the form of human thru jesus"? Does it looks like to you English?
God changed His form, from God He became Human? And when He was on Earth as jesus, whom Jesus (God) was praying to? To Himself?
Or One Part of God came down to earth and Two Third was staying in Heavens?
Did not Jesus had constant contact with God, while he was moving on earth?
This is the confused state in which Trnitarian Christians are, they even do not understand what they are talking.
You are a sinner MUQ.
Your soul needs to be saved by God.
Only the blood of Jesus on the cross can save you from the fires of hell.
God did not send His Son to condemn the world. He did not send him to punish the sinners but to save the sinners. This is the age of grace.

This is the age where God has extended His hand to the whole world and says “please be reconciled with me”(2 Corinthians 5:20-21). Indeed a day will come in which God will judge the world and those to whom He extended His invitation but they rejected Him.

This is “the day of wrath”(Romans 2:5), the day in which God will judge those that denied the truth of the gospel and will be to them “tribulation and anguish”(Romans 2:9). This is the day in which those “that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ .. shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;”(2 Thessalonians 1:8-9).

But this day has not come yet MUQ!
Today is NOT the day of wrath and punishment but the age of grace; the age in which, God, by giving His Son, has extended a hand of friendship to all and wants all to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4).

It is the day of reconciliation and not the day of judgment and punishment.

The Ultimate Authority

Even though Paul had approval from the eyewitnesses of Jesus' life, nevertheless, Paul claimed that his ultimate authority did not come from humans, but directly from Christ's revelation to him:

"For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ (Gal. 1:11-12)."

Paul himself saw Jesus via revelation on his encounter on the road to Damascus (Acts 9, 22, 26) in which Christ revealed Himself to Paul . He was an eyewitness in the sense of having seen Jesus after his death (1 Cor. 9:1). Therefore, Paul certainly had the authority to teach and preach the Gospel.

God want Muslims out of Islam!

When a Muslim, risking his life, leaves Islam there is joy in heaven!

It is easy for a fat arm chair air conditioned American to accept Jesus and feel a happened rush, but for a sweaty Muslim who had nothing tangible to gain and everything to lose, accepting Christ is a real life or dead decision!

Muslim converts are the most sincere Christians. The real work of the Holy Spirit is at work!

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.

My interpretation is correct, Buford.

Matthew 26:26 is a dubious verse.

Please check out Mark 14:22-26 and Luke 22:17-20 and compare all the three.

Luke 22

"14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15 And he said to them,“I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”

17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said,“Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying,“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.[a] "

And look at the footnote [a]: "Luke 22:20 Some manuscripts do not have given for you … poured out for you."

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...

Mark 14:22 "While they were eating, he took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to them, and said,‘Take; this is my body.’ 23 Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, and all of them drank from it. 24 He said to them,‘This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many."

Not poured out for the sins of all!!! He just wanted them to remember him. That is all there is to it.

It is all there in simple English, not in Hebrew or Aramaic or Arabic or Greek.

You wrote the above line in response to to following silly lines from Shamma:

"God came down from heaven in the form of a human man through Jesus to die on the cross for our sins.
It happened.
That is a true fact."

It is beautiful to know that Ezekiel 18:4 teaches that no one's soul will be condemned for the sin of another and that sin is not inherited. Here is what the LORD God said through Ezekiel:

"4 For all people are mine to judge—both parents and children alike. And this is my rule: The person who sins is the one who will die."

This is quite touching, bursts Shamma's Christian bubble and shows that Jesus did not die for anyone's sins.

The NT was written long after Jesus died and it wasn't even written by witnesses. That's why the NT is full of errors and contradictions, the authors are simply ascribing to Jesus what their personal views were.

The promises of the NT are mythology, delusion and false hope.
