“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?”

G-D can confuse any of their enemies, and have muslim fighting muslim, christian fighting christian, jew fighting jew, and atheists fighting atheists or all of the above fighting any number of each other.

there is little value, of americans as terrorists, trying to stop everyone else's terrorism. now you got yourselves in a jam, if american terrorist pull out. then russian or some other terrorism, is going to fill it in.

pull out of afghanistan, some other terrorism is going to fill it in. and you've truly, accomplished nothing. you just made room, for other terrorists. this world has more enemies of G-D, than you can shake a stick at. just waiting for their terrorist chance, to fill in somewhere.

your only hopes is for one government to start telling, the truth of G-D. and take the chance with G-D, that somebody might listen. otherwise G-D is not going to, even take notice of us at least trying. and telling the truth, of all your other false g-ds is not going to cut it.

It is the pagan-founded Church that saw God as a man and gave Christians a pagans' Trinity.
When God created the first two people, he had a very special relationship with them. Adam and his wife Eve lived in a beautiful garden-like paradise called Eden (possibly in the vicinity of modern Iraq), and they experienced close and loving fellowship with God all of the time.

God did not want to force Adam and Eve to love him. Rather, he wanted their love to be sincerely and freely given. Perhaps as a test of their love, he placed a special tree in Eden that had delicious-looking fruit. This tree was called “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. There were many wonderful things to eat in Eden, and God said that Adam and Eve were free to eat any of those things … except the fruit of this special tree.

In our Famous Names in the Bible reading we were introduced to Satan, an angel who rebelled against God some time before Adam and Eve were created. By this time, Satan’s hatred of God was so intense that he wanted to destroy the relationship between God and those he loved.

So Satan disguised himself and visited Adam and Eve in the Garden. He worked hard to get them to doubt what God had commanded. Then, Satan suggested that God made the rule about the tree because he didn’t want them to have god-like knowledge. Finally, he had them look at the fruit of the tree and said,“Doesn’t that look delicious?”

Sadly, both Adam and Eve took Satan’s advice, and they ate the forbidden fruit. At that instant, something horrible happened: their special relationship with God was broken, and they became spiritually separated from him. The Bible refers to this condition of separation as death. Even though Adam and Eve were still alive physically, their spirits became dead to God from that moment on. They were so aware of their new condition, they even tried to hide from God.

This separation was more than just a bad feeling. In their life before eating the fruit, they could not imagine doing anything to displease God. This is why there was no need for God to say to them,“Don’t lie,” or “Don’t steal.” But now their hearts were changed. Not only was it now easy for Adam and Eve to imagine disobeying God, they often did so. The second sin followed quickly after the first, and many more followed after that. They didn’t hate God like Satan did, but neither did they love God like they used to.

Not only did Adam and Eve’s first sin corrupt their own hearts, it corrupted all who came after them. The tendency to rebel against God’s perfect standards of right and wrong became a part of mankind’s nature, passed on from generation to generation:

When Adam sinned, sin entered the entire human race. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.

— Romans 5:12 (NLT)

This means that every person since Adam and Eve—including you and me—is born spiritually dead. People who are spiritually dead tend not to value the things that God values. Whenever a person is presented with the choice of obeying God or disobeying him, he usually prefers to disobey. Sometimes he does what is right, but even then it is often only because doing so benefits him in some way.

Adam and Eve Driven Out of Eden
In the Bible, acts of disobedience to God are known as sin. A person can disobey by doing something God has commanded him not to do — for example, when he steals something. He can also disobey by failing to do something God has commanded him to do — for example, when a husband fails to love his wife. We have little trouble understanding that acts like murder are sin, but many see little harm in telling a lie. However, all such disobedience is offensive to God.

My reply:

Muslims talk about sin, and teach that man can become spiritually pure again through his own effort — through self-discipline or through righteous deeds that “outweigh” the sin.

The Bible differs with this idea very sharply. Man’s problem is not that he is spiritually impure; his problem is that he is spiritually dead! No act of man can undo the damage done by even a single sin.

But let us imagine for a moment that man could do something to become acceptable to God. Based on the Bible’s description of God and sin, what would that require?

For a person to be acceptable to God through his own effort, he would have to live his entire life without disobeying God even once! In other words, a single small act of theft, a single lie, a single instance of arrogant pride, a single envious thought, a single unkind word spoken to someone else—any one act of disobedience of God’s standards of right and wrong (God’s “moral law”) would be enough to condemn a person. It is easy to see that every one of us has failed in this.

Adam and Eve were forced to leave Eden and live out the remainder of their lives without that close and loving fellowship with God that they had enjoyed at the beginning. They always remembered with great sorrow that special relationship. They lived to see several generations of their descendants before they died, and saw the awful consequences of their choice to disobey God.

Struck off one useless para, to fit in my response.

That is a waste of precious bandwidth.

The point is that Adam and Eve committed no such thing known as the absurd original Sin.

Just tell me who was the ignorant fool, who came up with this ridiculous Original Sin or the First Sin?

Was it Jesus?

Can you show me a word from God and God's obedient slave/servant Jesus talking about the original sin?

Jesus never talked about this absurd and filthy doctrine. It was Paul's bull shit.

One cannot find the word 'sin' in Genesis 3 at all.

Sin is not a bacteria or a germ or a virus or a disease that can be transmitted.

Dear BMZ,

It is far better to worship a Man who taught only the message of Love to humanity and then go to Hell, rather than following the false and hellish teaching of the Imposter Mohammad who in the name of God instructed Muslims to hate and kill followers of other faith especially Jews and Pagans so that they can go to Heaven and lead a luxurious life.

What a ridiculous statement!

It is silly, absurd and idiotic to say that Jesus taught people to love humanity and as if he were the first person to do so. The ancients loved their people many, many centuries long before Jesus became a zygote.

Then you better start worshipping Confucius, Buddha and many other great philosophers
and sages, who taught the same.

Mischievous and clueless fool, tell me where and when did Muhammad instruct Muslims to hate and kill followers of other faith especially Jews and Pagans so that they can go to Heaven and lead a luxurious life?
