Who Is Allah?

There are 225684 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?”

Do you sometimes crave for God's love, guidance, protection and Mercy?

For a child has been born to us, a son given to us, and the authority is upon his shoulder,
.......and the wondrous adviser, the mighty God, the everlasting Father,.... called his name, "the prince of peace."

Not a SINGLE person during the time of Jesus called him..wondrous adviser..mighty god....everlsting father....or even prince of peace.

Sure, they called BJ a nutcase, possessed etc...but nothing very flattering.

Also he NEVER said..."My father, ghost and I are one and the same person...or co-equal bits of a 'whole' godhead"!
Jesus killed off trinity long before it started.

Salaams, bro

If one reads all the gospels, one would not find Jesus talking about the alleged Holy Ghost at all. He is found talking only about God and used the term Father.

If God were a Trinity, he would would have always mentioned 'My Father and my Holy Ghost OR My Father and my Father's Ghost'. However, we do not see that anywhere.

Trinity was created by pagan converst and philosophers, long, long after Jesus was gone. Jesus, his disciples and followers, even Paul and Timothy died without even hearing a word about Trinity.

Indeed...Jesus NEVER promoted this "gruesome threesome".
How dare they ignore him, gaffer tape him and carry on with their trinity delusion?
Paul was playing to some superstitious audience who believed when people died, their ghosts would return to haunt "the living".
Paul's ghost was never meant to be the "holy ghost".

Do you sometimes crave for God's love, guidance, protection and Mercy?

There is no right answer.
I know through logic and yogic experience that all power is innate in the individualized unified consciousness-energy field taken as a totality in all its planes and parts.

So, if I crave anything like release from psychological or emotional or physical distress, I simply aspire for that particular thing and after some time if the need is genuine and the aspiration sincere and deep enough and the being open and receptive to the higher force, the deeper degrees of the innate consciousness-energy sends the required helped and I tide over the difficulty of the time but of course to receive help in this way one has to have an awakened consciousness and should know something, via direct experiences, about the various planes and parts of being. At least some constant and direct contact should be made with the higher reaches of one's self then the help and power and insight descend into the frontal being to help, guide and/or console. However, one has to be constantly on guard since the asuric forces at times mimic the forces of harmony and may seek to invade the being and create more problems. So, the consciousness has to be awakened and potent enough to detect and ward off these negative intrusions. everything depends on the turn of the individual nature with its innate capacities.

Those living in the ordinary consciousness seek feeble external props like seeking out a friend, a fictional extra-cosmic god, an ordinary scriptural being posing as God, a lover, a psychologist, a priest or by turning to rituals and the like.

Assuming you are talking about an anthropopatic god, then your god cannot BE a monkey or donkey or dog or man, but he CAN come as each of them.

Unless you are suggesting that your almighty god isn't that almighty after all.

Apology? Yes you actually ARE like Alex. Unbelievable. Look, as far as I am concerned, you are nothing but an ignorant big mouth who does nothing but copy and pastes huge, long articles that monopolize entire pages, and then when it's time for you to actually write something yourself, you do nothing but insult and threaten, and you just repeat the same things over and over and over and over again. And you indeed, have a core hatred going on that you need to deal with. You are far more than just critical, you have a core anger and hatred, and as far as I'm concerned, you are an embarrassment for Christians and match every negative stereotype that some people have for them. And you have the nerve to think YOU are actually the one following Jesus' teachings? Takes a lot of nerve or even ignorance.
You are the one that is an embarrassment to Christianity.
You falsely accept the Muslim god Allah as the God of Israel.
That in itself is an insult to all Christians.
And by your accepting the Muslim God as the God of Israel you have become a slave of the Muslims.

You call my rejecting the Muslims god Allah arrogant, and hateful.
Rebuking evil deeds of murder is an Commandment from God you dumb slave of the Muslims.
Murdering innocent people using Gods name in vain does send people to hell according to Gods Commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain (KJV, also "You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God" (NRSV) and variants)
is one of the Ten Commandments. It is a prohibition of blasphemy, specifically, the misuse or "taking in vain" of the name of the God of Israel. Exodus 20:7 reads:Exodus

You don't understand what Sura 9:29 is saying:
Sahih International

Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture -[fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

The point you miss is that "And His Messenger [Muhammad]
have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the scripture".

Here Muhammad is falsely claiming he has the authority from God to murder those that do not accept the religion of Muhammad, and the man made laws instituted by Muhammad as Gods laws.
That is falsely using Gods name in vain.

So, it is you Seeker that refuses to accept Gods Commandment "Thou shall not take the name of thy Lord your God in vain".

There is a hell Seeker, and those that murder using the name of thy Lord God in vain is blasphemy, and the punishment for that sin is hell.

Anthropopathy has nothing to do with God becoming an insect or an animal or a man.

You don't understand. I made it so simple, when I wrote: God, the Most High cannot become the Most Low or the Lowest of the low. "I, the LORD, do not change" is the LORD's slogan!

Jews have their own problem in obeying God.
So you cannot personally use the Jews as an example of Gods Holiness and truth.
For when you use the Jews as an example of their sins against as Gods Holiness and truth you blasphemy God by using Gods name in vain.

You cannot defend the Muslim false prophet Muhammad by using the sins of the Jews as Jews being an example of Gods Holiness and truth.

You are ignorant of God BMZ!

Muslims blasphemy God by the mere suggestion that the Holy Trinity of
God not having a Son is based on God not having a wife.

Gods Holy Trinity comes forth from within God Himself as the Spirit Being of God Himself.

There is only one God!

God means different things to different people. So when you talked about god I made sure you were talking about Allah who is an anthropopatic god.

Anthropopathy is the ascription of human passions or feelings to a thing or a being not human, as to a deity.

How many times man wished to be an animal or a thing for its own purpose? So an anthropopatic god can become whatever thing he wishes, because he's anthropopatic, i.e. similar to us.

Hello dear Shamma, keep your hair on.
You claim that "God is a Trinity".
Surely such a claim needs to be verified by ATLEAST Jesus.
Please can you produce evidence from Jesus that "God is a Trinity" and that he is part of that Trinity?
Why not try showing me some proof from the Synoptic gospels.
While at it please answer the following in a DIRECT manner because Seeker is unable to tackle this:
We need you to show Jesus making claims in the first person as follows, in Synoptic Gospels starting with MARK:
1. "I am God in 'the' flesh"
2. "I am God!"
3. "I am THE only begotten son of God"
4. "I am God in person"
5. "I am God Incarnate"
6. "I am THE Father and Father and I are one and the same person" 7. "I am made of sin"
8. "God is a trinity and I am part of that trinity or triune"
9. "I am your God who came to earth in human form as my own son to die on a Roman cross for the sins of Gentiles or the world or the entire humanity/"
10. "Through belief in my unconditional/loving/willing sacrifice as your God in human form as my own son, you can have eternal life"
11. "Therefore, Worship me and the cross"
12. "Father, ghost and I are co equal, co eternal and consubstantial gods forming a godhead"
13.“I, Jesus, existed before God as Word and I, Jesus, became God” 14.“Hey Philip! I am THE Father"
15. "Worship and kiss the cross and get your pope to kiss it, carry it with him and raise it like Moses' serpent"
16.“My mission is not to bring a book, but to die for sins of GENTILES and JEWS”
17. "I am your saviour (dear gentiles)

If you can't show proof from the Synoptic Gospels starting with Mark, then you best admit it.
Thank you, Shamma.

When Man creates God in his image, his "god" inevitably turns out to be anthropopathic.
Allah does NOT need us. Allah is eternal, self subsisting, unique etc etc.
Ascription of human passions or feelings to Allah is very simplistic and a typical trait of of mangod worshippers and ex mangod worshippers.

Its all true Alex.
You have a mental block in your brain that is stopping you from coming to the knowledge of truth.
You are not a humble person Alex.
If you humble yourself before the Lord, God will enlighten your mind to Gods truth.
You need to repent and make an act of contrition from within your heart and confess your sins to God and put your self pride aside and allow Jesus the Son of God to come into your life.

An act of contrition is acknowledging you have sinned against God and you are sorry for offending the Holiness and Goodness of God your creator.

You're a retard.

The Christians have not ascribed human-like traits to Allah.

The Quran itself is replete with examples of the anthropopathy of Allah who raves, rants, threatens, curses, loves, forgives, sympathizes, gets jealous and so on. These are typical human traits.

So, little Allah is a minor being - a highly anthropopathic one.

LOL.

Inbreeding or marriage between cousins is turning the Muslims across the world into intellectually crippled and stupid people. But, Muslims are not ready to accept the well-researched reports of scientific investigations and argue that, since Allah has not declared marrying cousins as haram (non-permissible), there cannot, as a result, be any harmful effect due to such incestuous marriages. So, they deplore the scientific evidences in this field and say that all such scientific reports are concocted to malign Islam. ROFL.
