Who Is Allah?

There are 230311 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?”

In reference to your last question. To be a better Christian, I think one must imitate Him.
It's useless to imitate Jesus. Everybody was created as an individual for a reason. One needs to become their own version of Jesus that is best suited for who they are, to the extent that they can. Imitating someone means nothing. If one does that, they don't get it.

So, if you were to investigate love, Paul writes extensively(I Cor 13:4-8).
Love means accepting someone aside from whether they benefit you or not. It means accepting someone for who they actually are.

This is love, perfectly explained.

43 “You have heard that it was said,‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect..

Do you think those barbaric laws were well-suited to those times?
I am not sure to what laws you are referring. But let me assume, those which required the death penalty....

In reverse, do you think that someone in ancient times, and living a morally good life, would be suited to live in our times, with our laws? Or do you think he would believe our laws and punishments were barbaric?(Such as letting murders, and thieves out of jail.)

I do not see Jesus as you do in your statement.
In a sense, to be compassionate, one must have compassion. Therefore, a spiritual person without compassion, may as well be useless.
Without emotions, one is but a robot.
To seek with one's mind without compassion and emotions renders one a rather sterile, and selfish person....Don't you think?
Peace
What's most important is that someone discover the true motivation behind their emotions and altruistic acts, and it ain't as pretty as the illusion that people love to paint for themselves. People love to create an illusion that allows them to paint themselves in glowing colors.

Jesus can be termed a third rate mystic whose teachings/deeds are rip offs from the lower teachings of the Vedanta, Buddhism and other esoteric teachings, while the higher teachings and the deeper practices of Eastern Mysticism remained way beyond his ordinary reach.

You're clearly clueless about spiritualism and about the manner spiritual personalities conduct themselves.

Expected.

Anyway, do good.

LMAO.

None of the above puerile and stale and copied teachings of Jesus can save a person from the causal laws governing human karma nor can they illumine anyone about the nature of reality.

<quoted text>
The word God indicates a typal being, usually an anthropomorphic and an anthropopathic entity, of any one of the numerous planes of the cosmic consciousness.
God is an inferior status in the manifested hierarchy.
The cosmic planes are exceeded by the supracosmic planes and the supracosmic planes lead directly to the absolute consciousness-energy (source) and besides the supracosmic as well as the cosmic planes are graded manifestations of the source.
So, one can unite in consciousness-energy with a typal being of any plane or one could unite with the entire range/plane of consciousness but to go all the way back to the ultimate source by uniting with plane after plane (cosmic and supracosmic) would indeed be a stupendous task that just a handful of the advanced yogis have executed.
JOE COOL DUDE

In a sense you are defining an undefinable God. The word God is an appellation.

People describe or ascribe what they think or believe God is.(On various levels.) This in the Abrahamic faiths is forbidden., and a form of idolatry. Yet one's mind often sways to what it is exposed to.....

So if something is undefinable one can accept that and become a mystic, and then approach things in mystical terms. This is the nature of being spiritual.

Your issue here, is that people do not accept your definitions. And putting God, on some lower plane of existence sounds rather silly to the mind that accepts God as undefinable....

With some respect, we all have to relearn what we know....

PLANES = GRADATIONS
Frequency, power and phenomena are the distinguishing typal features of any plane in the manifested hierarchy.
Thus, each plane has a different frequency of vibration, different degree of power and a different range of phenomena.
So, we have the gradations of the planes of the energy of consciousness in ascending order as follows:
inconscient, subconscient, gross physical, subtle physical, lower vital, higher vital, mind, higher mind, illumined mind, intuition mind, overmind-1, overmind-2, overmind-3, overmind-4, supermind-1, supermind-2, supermind-3, supermind-4, bliss-1, bliss-2, bliss-3 and then we encounter a scale of the supracosmic planes leading right to the source.
JCD

More or less the Standard Model in modern science takes care of physical phenomena, plus energy transmitting forces plus gravity, and that takes care of the universe(reality as it is). Some are just more aware of this than others....

Although String Theory is popular, it has yet to be proven.

Lao Tzu was a mere talker, a mere philosopher, not a mystic.
So, what can he know of the gradations of consciousness?

Anyway, what does this verse from the NT refer to?
"I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the THIRD HEAVEN.
Whether it was IN THE BODY or OUT OF THE BODY I do not know - God knows."
- 2 Corinthians 12:2

It is just my opinion, but Paul tried to describe the Third Heaven, in the entire Epistle of Ephesians....

(But that is my lowly opinion.)

What he calls hatred is actually people accurately quoting things from Muslim sources themselves. It's not their fault that Muslims publish this stuff. It's not their fault that the Quran itself indicts itself as a false scam if one can merely l0ook at it objectively. All of the problems with it are right there, right in front of their face, winking at them, waving at them, waiting to be noticed, but Muslims are completely hypnotized and cannot see them.
PUBH

The problem is that most people can't be objective, is that what you are saying?

But is it a problem, or just part of the logic equation that enters as a presupposition?

On that time brother, there was no arab

So that god told Abraham peace be upon him that prophet will be decended from ishmael
Peace be upon him

Genesis 17

 6 And I will make thee exceeding afruitful, and I will make bnations of thee, and ckings shall come out of thee

And so Language will change

So ishmael will be Arab

Abram ( Hebrew) turn to Abraham arabic

Genesis 17

20 And as for aIshmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; btwelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be aAbraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

Sarai Hebrew turn to Sarah Arabic

15 ¶And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but aSarah shall her name be.

HEY EVERYBODY!!!
You've got to check this out!!!
it's a post from way back from the resident liar and phallus obsessed gay porn comic strip character, ex priest and ex rabbi, PHILTHY PHATHER PHALLICS!!!!
Here, his name was Rabbi Cohen, before he decided to claim he was an ex priest. This is from 2008, so it looks like this guy was always a liar from the start here.
I found this rare treasure by accident. If you type in topix islam in google, you see a link for a thread that asks if this forum is an anti islam forum. I opened it and found him on the first page and here is the link to his post.
http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam/TTE...
The howling hysterical part is that you find a rare gem post like this, and what do you think the main subject of it was? IT WAS ABOUT PHALLIC SYMBOLS!!!!. LOL!!!! LOL!!!! LOL!!!!
COULD IT BE ANY MORE IRONIC???
MORONIC??
And Rabbi Cohen is from London too, just like Philthy Phather Phallics, the ex priest. Imagine that. Small world.
Nothing new under the sun.

He claimed to be an ex-priest, a scientist, worked for an investment bank, work for a pizza company, he's a multimillionaire, etc. And now you found out he went by name of Rabbi Cohen.

We already knew he was a liar.

Even as ex-priest, his theology was way below of what a priest is supposed to know. Thus I never believed any of his claim.

If you look to that link you posted and go to page 2 you can see the presence of bmz of Singapore. He believes Alex was a priest, even though he knew well he used to post as Rabbi Cohen. Bmz is just another liar.

Of course prophets are our model

Not committed adultery like old testonmies
Say about david that he killed urai ( his army)
To sleep with his wife

Neither prophets are killer

Islam totally disagree with above claim

It says prophets are peaceful good and nice people

Plus they are loveable
