Who Is Allah?

There are 248349 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?”

Jesus' spirit went to heaven although he did not deserve it. Heaven and hell are the realm of the dead. Jesus is dead and he's not coming back from heaven but he has been reincarnated. This time he'll get what he deserves which is death and hell. Jesus is a thief and a liar.

I really think the flood was limited to one region.
I don't think that it is possible for the whole globe to be covered in water at the same time....but I may be wrong!
Did Noah include penguins and polar bears with animals from warmer climate?
Tigers...lions...and snakes...all in the boat?
oh dear.
Torah says that the animals came to the Ark; not that Noah went out and got them.

And if it was a limited region, it had to be a big one. The story of the flood proliferates many cultures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_flood_my...

Paul was promoting a demon BJ.
If you had any brains you will know that Paul's vision was a cock and bull story.
He has taken worship away from G-d by introducing a tall tale.
Prophet Muhammed PBUH is promoting the LORD GOD of all creation.
You must be sick to even challenge that concept if you believe in G-d.
Islam is about PURE monotheism.
We are concerned with submitting our Will to the CREATOR instead of worshipping naked men.
Jesus is God Alex.
There is no other God besides God.
And that is what Paul preached Alex.

Ephesians 4:4
Unity in the Body…
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.…

1 Corinthians 8:6
yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

God is life Alex.
There is no life outside of God

Jesus is the Spirit of God in human form through from whom we are given life.

John 1:1-6
King James Version (KJV)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

So Paul taught that God is One Alex.

Jesus talks to me every day Alex.
And Jesus talks to you Alex but you block out His words from hearing them.
Jesus lives in your heart and mind Alex.
Jesus speaks to you through your moral conscience.
But you block out his words from your heart and mind.

Gods laws are planted in your heart and mind, and Jesus is there to remind you to void doing sinful things.
But your heart and mind is void of Gods laws so you don't hear Jesus voice speaking to you.

You said "It is also clear proof that many books have been "doctored" by the writers to give their own race an undue advantage." My question is that if that is so, why couldn't the final prophet/messiah still bring worldwide peace no matter what their ethnicity. Worldwide peace has nothing to do with ethnicity. Muhammad didn't do it. Muhammad is not the final prophet.
He has brought a much clearer message. I am confident that peace will prevail when people leave their prejudices behind and really try to understand the message.
When you say Muhammed didn't do it...you have assumed a time limit.
I think the message is for all eternity and I also believe that the message is getting through. I suppose I am an optimist.
You will agree that Islam is not shrinking yet.
The West is quite tolerant and accommodating.
The overwhelming majority of Muslims accept this and respect the West for that.
Unfortunately the bigots will always concentrate on nutcases and the uneducated folks.
Hope peace prevails.

Many parts of the world have had floods, quakes, tsunamis etc.
I am not convinced that water covered the whole planet at the same time.
The stories are actually concentrating on people closer to Noah. It doesn't mention folks from far off land...and it would have been impossible for them to get to Noah.
Does it mean they were all sinners? That will be a dreadful generalization.
It makes more sense when it is seen as a regional flood.

Jesus is NOT God, Shamma.
That is the MOST ridiculous and outdated assumption.
Do you really believe that God who created billions of galaxies was a little man from the middle east?
This is a BIG lie.
Why don't you listen to Jesus instead of listening to liars?

Jesus NEVER claimed that he was God.
Period..end of...

Stop quoting rubbish from John 1:1!!
STOP and THINK.... WHO SAID THAT?
WHO said what is shown in Jon 1:1?
Did Jesus say it? NO!
Did God say it? NO!

Some nutcase decides to write some rubbish and you believe him, because you are desperate.

In reality..we know this is also due to lack of originals and also due to deliberate "errors" through "translations" in a multitude of "versions"!!

Jesus did NOT say "I am G-d".
Stop lying.

I maintain that Jesus is NOT G-d.
Those who worship him make him a sinner by continuing to worship him.
Jesus only will have some hope when the idol worshippers stop calling him God.

Peace will never prevail in Islam Alex.
Your message from Muhammad is death and destruction of human life.
Following the laws of Muhammad and the Quran leads Muslims to sin against God.

That is because you are a child of Muhammad and not a child of God.
You sold your heart, mind and soul Muhammad.
You hear the voice of Muhammad in obeying the laws of Muhammad and the laws of the Quran.

You do not know anything about Jesus Alex.
You are a mindless talker that never takes the time to learn about Jesus.

You are only fooling yourself.
You have never taken the time to learn about the teachings of Jesus and how they affect your total life.

You are stupid in not knowing Muslims are being molded into Muhammad and not molded into the life of Jesus Christ who He alone is the giver of life eternal.

You are quite confused. Whether or not Jesus is "G-d," NO ONE "makes him a sinner by continuing to worship him." Surely this idiotic notion was NOT taught to you in seminary, EX-PRIEST that you claim to be.

This is interesting. Why isn't the Muslim world also tolerant and accommodating? Wouldn't that bring more adherents? With people like MUQ who tell people who are being killed in the Muslim world that they should move out, why would anyone want to join MUQ's belief system?

Peace prevailing? Hmm...By what means? Will it be an infusion of "peace" vibes that overcomes all contrary vibes, like those that currently reign in Egypt or Syria or Sudan or Somalia, or any other country where Mohammad's bloodthirsty religion has been inflicted/infused?

The problem for Muslims is that they prefer Moses to Jesus, because Moses, like Mohammad, the PERFECT MODEL for them, was a murderer, for "Allah." Jesus, on the other hand, taught his disciples to turn the other cheek, or so it is alleged, not that it mattered in any case to Rome...

You may have noted that bmz of Singapore prefers the "eye for an eye" OT mandate. Hell yes!

Why would anyone want to be an orthodox Jew? Without a Temple or a functioning priesthood, what's the point?

RICHARD the PROVEN IGNORAMUS and LIAR,

You NEVER WERE a priest.

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

Philippians 2:5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!

9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
