Who Is Allah?

There are 256421 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?”

OK, so the Jews made a huge mistake by wanting him to be killed, and may God forgive them. And which parts of his message did his followers pervert and exactly what do you use to make that determination? The Gospels?
The Gospels are propaganda written long after Jesus' death by those who wanted to bolster their own forgone conclusion that Jesus was the Messiah and Son of G-d. Peter and James the Just (cousin/brother of Jesus) did not believe Jesus was the Messiah and Son of G-d. But they lost the battle. For example, Constantine told the scribes who codified the New Testament to make changes--300 years after the death of Jesus.

A case of HOPE, right?
If we all remove our tainted glasses...we will clearly see that Prophet Muhammed PBUH, has successfully encouraged billions of ex pagans to turn to the worship of ONE TRUE ALMIGHTY L-rd G-d who created heavens and earth, Adam/Eve ..Abraham..Moses..Jesus and others!
Through Holy Prophet Muhammed PBUH, access to L-rd G-d has been made a lot easier to all humanity.
G-d is not a naked man and G-d is longer the preserve of one race or tribe.
This is truly powerful.
But humanity has suffered ever more war and conflict since Muhammad on a global scale. Open the newspapers. Muhammad has not brought an end to war. He cannot be the final prophet.

You don't understand the hypocrisy of religion as to the unborn. Historically, the Jews and the Catholics did not recognize the unborn as a human unless it survived 30 days after birth/leaving the mother's womb. That included the still born and those that died after birth. Those that didn't survive 30 days were not accorded the rite of a funeral and were not mourned. They were discarded with the trash. If life begins at conception, why weren't those who didn't survive 30 days accorded the basic decency of a funeral and having their parents mourn them? Do you see the hypocrisy?
You can see a reference to this treatment of the unborn in Job 3.
How many centuries ago are you talking about? I don't like the "religious" argument in any case. The better argument centers on the denial of legal recognition. When did you become a legal "person" under the 14th Amendment? Was it when you drew your first breath, or was it when your mother decided that you were worth keeping alive in utero?

You are Misinterpreting what Job is saying.
All that this chapter really means is that Job, in the depths of his misery, wishes that he had never been born, or that he had died in infancy.

If job died in his infancy he feels he would not have all the misery he is suffering now in his life.
Job is complaining about his own life.

Were you ever a Catholic?

The Catholic Church has always respected the life and integrity of the embryo and the human fetus and directed towards its safeguarding or healing as an individual person.

In the case of a lost child during pregnancy it is the duty of the parents to immediately baptize the born dead child and offer prayer to God on its behalf.

In an emergency anyone can baptize an infant baptizing them in the name of Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

So I don't know where you are coming from with all your wrong ideas?

I wasn't crying, I was laughing. What do you think that LOL means? That was an absolutely ridiculous attempt on your part. That parable said nothing at all about different groups of people or religions. Nothing. It was talking about the important, successful people of this world will be last and the discard, less important people of this world will be first. It coincides with "the meek shall inherit the earth".

You got whipped on that horribly you nutcase and you merely ignored 75% of the things that I said to refute your silly claim, and I even used the scriptures themselves to do it and you did no such thing. Yet another reason to not continue with you because no matter how badly you get whipped, you just ignore it and declare victory out of nowhere. What a cross eyed moron.

You can expect no behavior from me about that except to identify you as the cross eyed moron that you actually are. And you don't even have the faintest idea of this. That's the worst and most hopeless part. Like I have said before many times, get a proper education and learn how to think and reason properly and correctly. Until then, nobody could ever have any sort of rational debate with you. You'll just continue to make up whatever you want and completely ignore the proper refutations you receive. So it's pointless.

Helpless. LOL!!! You remind me of someone who gets punched 20 times until the other guy's arm gets tired of punching you, and then you throw one punch and stand up and declare victory. Why do Muslims always seem to do this and see no problem with it? It's like when Lebanon was left in rubble, and Hezbollah declared victory because they managed to indiscriminately lob some rockets into Israel hoping to kill civilians. You call that a victory?? LOL!!! Only the twisted Muslim mind could ever think that way and it must be due to desperation. That's all that I can figure. If you can't win, just go ahead and tell yourself that you did, and maybe people might actually believe you, right? LOL!!! Go ahead, tell yourself whatever you want, but don't expect people to actually believe it.
Self grloifying? Are you?

The one who quits the discussion half way, is he the one who has logic on his side.

The way you people twist and turn OT prophesies and try to paste it on Jesus, we do not do not even 1 % of that and the prophesies are just being applied to our prophet.

Look at that Emmanuel prophesy, the OT original in Hebrew did not have meaning for the word Emmanuel, but when the Christians translated it, they added the phrase. Emmanel, that means "God with us".... now this explanatory phrase has become part of the Scriptures. And you cannot see any book that does not have this explanation for Emmanuel!!

Is it not strange?

You are just forgetting your posts in which you said you had enough and I was tricked into this this discussion and you were cursing the day when you enetered into this discussion etc.

Learn from this MUQ!
Learn about God!

God is "Spirit"
Is a singular noun meaning God is One.

The point Muslims are missing is that only God is life!
There is no other life out side the life that God alone possesses.

God is the maker and the giver of life to all creation.

God created the angels giving them the spirit of life through Gods own spirit.
The same with God creating us and giving us life through His own Spirit.

All things are created by the Spirit of God.
Without Gods breath of life in all things there is no life.

Those that don't understand that are confused and cause confusion in their interpretations of Scripture.

God contains all spirits

The wisdom of God;
Chapter 7:21-30

And all such things as are hid and not foreseen, I have learned: for wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me.[22] For in her is the spirit of understanding: holy, one, manifold, subtile, eloquent, active, undefiled, sure, sweet, loving that which is good, quick, which nothing hindereth, beneficent,[23] Gentle, kind, steadfast, assured, secure, having all power, overseeing all things, and containing all spirits, intelligible, pure, subtile.

[24] For wisdom is more active than all active things: and reacheth everywhere by reason of her purity.[25] For she is a vapour of the power of God, and a certain pure emanation of the glory of the almighty God: and therefore no defiled thing cometh into her.

[26] For she is the brightness of eternal light, and the unspotted mirror of God' s majesty, and the image of his goodness.[27] And being but one, she can do all things: and remaining in herself the same, she reneweth all things, and through nations conveyeth herself into holy souls, she maketh the friends of God and prophets.

[28] For God loveth none but him that dwelleth with wisdom.[29] For she is more beautiful than the sun, and above all the order of the stars: being compared with the light, she is found before it.[30] For after this cometh night, but no evil can overcome wisdom.

First of all, you are not debating all Christians, you are debating me, and I didn't even want to bother to talk about Jesus as it was not the topic that I originally agreed to speak about, but you forced it into the conversation. Second of all, I am the one who actually uses the scriptures themselves. I used the scriptures themselves to determine the criteria to determine what like Moses means. You just made up whatever criteria you thought would suit your purposes. So who is doing twisting to suit their own needs and who is not?

Why don't you ask a Jew what Emmanuel means, oh uneducated one? Now why don't you just go away. You don't have the mental capacity nor the education level to participate in any sort of serious debate. Your reasoning skills are completely warped and self serving and you don't even have a clue about what objectivity means.

And why should we debate anything anyway? We both know that if you see a convincing refutation, you will merely ignore it or sidestep it and move on as though it was never even said. And don't accuse me of doing the same thing, because as you know, I refute every single thing you attempt, piece by piece, point by point. So much so, that you have complained that my posts are too long. You ignore at least 60% of the points that I make and you use the excuse that my posts are too long and detailed

After you find out that even Jews say that Emmanuel means God with us, you will pretend as though you never made the mistake you made. Just like when you said that 18:18 should have said "from yourselves" if it meant fellow Jews, but failed to apply that same rule to 17:15. And I asked you about that three different times, and you never said a peep about it and tried to sweep your clear logical error under the rug.

So what would be the point of me offering any refutations at all? And if there is no point to that, then what would be the point of debating at all? Like I have said over and over again, take a few courses in logic and philosophy where they will teach you about things such as objectivity. Memorizing the Quran is not an education in rational thinking.

"When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her,"

How does a woman travel to her own honey tunnel to draw water?

“Sir,” the woman said,“you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep."

So does this mean that Jesus does not have a penis? The rest of your post is just too silly to even reply to.

Actually, he was never a priest. He doesn't even know half of the scriptures. But it is quite possible that he was abused by one, and that he actually liked it. That is a distinct possibility and his behavior and obsession with porn and penis does suggest that.

Good question.
Psalm 2:7 shows that the LORD loved David and took him as a son just as a man loves his son.
Looking through the lens of Semitic languages, "This day I have begotten thee" means "Today, I have taken you as a son". God did not beget David, when David was already a grown up man.
Also, David was unknown and unheard of as a child.
In 2:8 God tells David to ask anything, be it nations or possession of all the earth.
However, I do not see David asking for that. His kingdom was only within the boundaries of Israel. The entire earth and nations were not under David and neither the entire earth was in his possession.
Psalm 2 is actually a warning to the rulers, judges and kings to fear God Almighty and wants them to be fair and to rule justly.
Off to bed now.
All that I did was to explain the basis for Christians using the word son in the verses you mentioned by including contextual verses that you omitted. You always accuse others of cherry picking, but in your point, you did not include the verses that I included. So congratulations, you do the same exact thing that you accuse others of doing. Why are Muslims so consistently unaware of their own behavior?

I don't have any idea how your mind tells itself that you answered the question above. Obviously, you did not, nor will you ever. And I knew you wouldn't, which was why I told you to just shut up in advance. And everybody is just supposed to ignore the fact that you can't answer it.

At this point, I don't even think that even YOU believe that living water means Jesus' semen, but you are a little kid and think it's fun and funny to be a purposeful annoyance. That's how little kids think. So did a priest offer you living water? Is that what is the matter with you?
