Who Is Allah?

There are 225119 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?”

He won't respond to you, unless of course someone says that he won't respond like I just did. Now he will respond since I said that. Otherwise, he would pretend you never said that. But the Muslims here encourage you and wish you well merely because they want you on their side. That's the same thing they pull with Jimmie Roswell.

Hope you are wise enough to see that. You may hate me, but I will never try to manipulate you or anyone for my own purposes. So you can hate me all you want, but I am honest and I always say exactly what I mean, whether you agree with it or not, and I don't even need you for an ally so that I have to manipulate you to be one. For as much as you hate me, just think about it for a moment. These are very very opportunistic, dishonest people. Hate me all you want, but you will know exactly where I stand.

We don't know the given context and why the Buddha made such a comment about living in the present that clearly is a half-baked solution to dealing with life.

Seeker,
I have had the fun and pleasure with men like Ali Sina, Haik Monsieur aka Khalil, Kamran Mirza, Abul Kasem and many others and I found them to be ignorant fools.
Even Ali Sina and Abul Kasem agreed that they do not understand a word of Arabic and discuss through translations in English. That makes them incompetent fools. But they are okay with you because you too discuss through translations in English.
Are you fluent in Arabic? Not just Koran Arabic but the Arabic language in general.

I just got done explaining to you for the fifth time why any serious debate with someone who thinks like you is pointless, and you even ignore that as well. There is no such thing as consistency within you, and one cannot have a debate with someone who cannot be consistent. You can't just apply one set of rules, when it suits your needs, and then change the rules when it suits your needs. For example, with Isaiah 9:6, you said it is talking about something that will happen in Isaiah's lifetime. But then, when it came to a prophecy that you think is about Muhammad, you acknowledged that it could have been talking about Solomon, but said that would be too soon and Solomon came too soon to be a fulfillment of that prophecy. Presto!! Allah Kazam!!! The rules change just when you need them to.
And for the fact that you can't even recognize your own inconsistencies where you change the rules to one thing if you think it will suit your needs, and change them again when you think it suits your needs, means that there cannot be any sort of truly rational discussion with you that will ever lead anywhere. If the bar keeps moving, how can any fruitful discussion ever take place when you can merely move the bar to whatever you need it to be?
Why don't you just continue the discussion with El Cid, until he learns the same thing about you and bags out on it as well?
Talking about consistency, are you?

You who change your stance every now and then, PROVING Jesus, where there is none and then deny our prophet when the reference is much more clear?

And you misquote, it was not Isaiah 9:6, but Isaiah 14:7, where the period itself was specified in the book itslef, not by me, but by Isaiah!!

And you ignored all that and said that it talks about a boy born 800 years after writing.

While in the case of "Comforter", you insist that he "must come" during the life time of Apostles of Jesus. And you say I am not consistent!!

The point is that, you people change your rules with each and every prophesy and are never consistent.

Look at this Deut. 18:18, there is no way that it refers to Jesus, but see the twists and turns which you people do to paste it on Jesus.

How you "prove" that Jesus was like Moses.

How you "confirm" that Jesus was a prophet (while on other forums, you say, He was God, He was Son of God, being just a prophet is a minor thing for him), but when it comes to Deut. 18:18, you blow up his "Prophet" part.

And you say, I am not consistent!!

What the Bible Says about Prophet Mohammad (Peace be on him) Part-7A

Analyzing Deut. 18:17-19 (Contd.)

a. He shall be a Prophet :

(He shall be known and shall be famous as a Prophet. In other words being Prophet shall be His Important Quality).

I know many Christians shall agree to the Prophethood of Jesus, just to satisfy this prophesy, but was Jesus ONLY A PROPHET?

No, calling Jesus ONLY A PROPHET is sort of Insulting him!! Because he was Begotten Son of God, God in Human form, one with God in Trinity.

He had come to die for the sins of humanity and save them from that original sin.

So being ONLY A PROPHET is really an insult to him, to equate him with lower people!!

But our Prophet was ONLY A PROPHET and nothing more than a prophet. In the same way Moses was also ONLY a PROPHET and nothing more.

Our prophet made this ONLY PROPHET thing so pronounced that it is part of Islamic creed and that he being a prophet is announced five times from hundreds of thousands of mosques all over the world.

In fact if you say Prophet, the first person people will think will be prophet Mohammad (peace be on him).

So our prophet satisfies this part of this prophesy in a much better way that does the Jesus.

Any Comments Please?

What the Bible Says about Prophet Mohammad (Peace be on him) Part-7B

Analyzing Deut. 18:17-19 (Contd.)

b. He shall be like Moses

(In mission, in duties and in its completion and execution).

I doubt anyone will dare to say that Jesus was like Moses, because according to Christians Jesus is also God, while Moses is only a prophet.

Then Jesus died for the sins of human kind and Moses did not die for the sin of human kind.

Then Jesus entered the hell for three days (after crucifixion till the resurrection) while Moses did not enter hell at all.

Then in Jesus’ law, there is no restrictions on eating and cleaning oneself, where as in case of Moses’ law these things are part of his law.

So there is very little similarity between Jesus and Moses, in their personality, in their preaching, and in their success.

However there is a very strong similarity between Our Prophet Mohammad (peace be on him). And Moses, because of.

1. Both are humans and both are “only” prophets of God.

2. Both were born in normal way from father and mother.

3. Both were married and had children.

4. Both died in normal way and were buried on earth.

5. Both brought law that included fighting with enemies and rules of governing nation.

6. Both law have instructions regarding purity, cleaning and lawful and unlawful foods.

7. Both law have rules regarding punishing criminals and adulterators and adulteresses.

8. Both laws have punishment for apostasy and those who worship any thing other than God.

9. Both’ mission ended in success and both were accepted as Prophets and Leaders during their life time.

10. Both had the Kingdom established on this earth and they were head of that kingdom.

In all of these we find that Jesus was opposite than Moses , whereas Mohammad (peace be on him) was similar to Moses.
So this part of prophesy that “promised prophet would be like Moses” is more applicable to Prophet Mohammad (peace be on him) than Jesus..

Moses and Muhammad were themselves products of incest and so I wonder about the kind of children they had - surely, their progeny must have been as degraded and perverted as they were.

1. Muhammad denied that Jesus is the biological Son of God.

2. Muhammad denied that God is a Trinity.

3. Muhammad denied that Jesus was crucified on the cross died for our sin was buried and rose from the dead by the power of God.

4. Muhammad denied that Adam's fallen nature was passed on to us through Adam's sin against God.

5. Muhammad falsely claimed it was just a mistake and God forgave Adam and Eve, and there was no consequence of that mistake Adam committed.

Apostasy restricts free will and squashes the free-flow of the mind-matter equation. Apostasy is a misnomer, since, God, according to the perverts, Moses and Muhammad, simply meant choosing one God out of many Gods, so I wonder how switching allegiance from one God to another God be an offense.

Moses and Muhammad were ignorant of the higher laws of nature and being as evident in their teachings and life deeds. Their earth missions were colossal failures since neither could establish the unitary Truth-Consciousness Force in their own small areas of influence nor could they save humanity. Judaism and Islam are the most ridiculed cults and have nothing constructive to offer. Moses and Muhammad failed to eradicate diseases, poverty, death, wars, violence, murders, personality defects and sufferings in their own lives and in humankind nor could they help alleviate the ignorance of humankind via revelations about deep scientific insights about the true laws of nature nor did they have the knowledge needed to introduce technology to make life efficient, networked and comfortable nor could they infuse the unregenerate terrestrial matter with a higher force so as to lift matter out of its unplasticity and unreceptivity to the higher truth forces. Not surprisingly, Jews and Muslims are a most unhappy lot and manifest high incidences of mental and physical illnesses and we see Israel and the Islamic nations in a state of self-destruction.

Wherefore they are no more twain,.... They were two before marriage, but now no more so; not but that they remain two distinct persons,

but one flesh; or, as the Syriac, Arabic, Persic, and Ethiopic versions read, "one body": hence the wife is to beloved by the husband as his own body, as himself, as his own flesh, Ephesians 5:28.

what therefore God hath joined together; or, by the first institution of marriage, has declared to be so closely united together, as to be, as it were, one flesh, and one body, as husband and wife are;

let no man put asunder; break the bond of union, dissolve the relation, and separate them from each other, for every trivial thing, upon any slight occasion, or for anything; but what is hereafter mentioned.

The sense is, that the bond of marriage being made by God himself, is so sacred and inviolable, as that it ought not to be dissolved by any man; not by the husband himself, or any other for him; nor by any state or government, by any prince or potentate, by any legislator whatever; no, not by Moses himself, who is, at least, included, if not chiefly designed here, though not named, to avoid offence: and God and man being opposed in this passage, shows, that marriage is an institution and appointment of God, and therefore not to be changed and altered by man at his pleasure; this not merely a civil, but a sacred affair, in which God is concerned.
