Who Is Allah?

There are 256358 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?”

Demonic possession is associated with virgin birth - people born in this way display many paranormal powers of adept sorcerers from a very young age because the demonic being possessing the person acts through the possessed person.

MITHRA MYTH STOLEN BY THE CHRISTIANS:

MITHRAISM, this religion, cloaked in mystery and secrecy, has captivated the imaginations of scholars for generations. Many facts discovered sheds vital light on the cultural dynamics that led to the rise of Christianity. The National Geographic Society’s book “Great Religions of the World,” page 309 writes; “By Jesus’ time, East and West had mingled here for three centuries. Down columns of boulevards walked Roman soldiers loyal to the Persian god Mithras.” Mithras was a Persian deity. He was also the most widely venerated god in the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus. The Catholic Encyclopedia as well as the early Church Fathers found this religion of Mithras very disturbing, as there are so many similarities between the two religions, as follows:


1) Hundreds of years before Jesus, according to the Mithraic religion, three Wise Men of Persia came to visit the baby savior-god Mithra, bring him gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense.

2) Mithra was born on December 25 as told in the “Great Religions of the World”, page 330; “…it was the winter solstice celebrated by ancients as the birthday of Mithraism’s sun god”.

3) According to Mithraism, before Mithra died on a cross, he celebrated a “Last Supper with his twelve disciples, who represented the twelve signs of the zodiac.

4) After the death of Mithra, his body was laid to rest in a rock tomb.
5) Mithra had a celibate priesthood.

6) Mithra ascended into heaven during the spring (Passover) equinox (the time when the sun crosses the equator making night and day of equal length).


As you can now see, Christianity derived many of its essential elements from the ancient religion of Mithraism.

Mithraism became intertwined with the cult of Jesus to form what is known today as “Christianity.”

Although literary sources on this religion are sparse, an abundance of material evidence exists in the many Mithraic temples and artifacts that archaeologists have found scattered throughout the Roman Empire, from England in the north and west to Palestine in the south and east. The temples were usually built underground in caves, which are filled with an extremely elaborate iconography (illustrating by pictures, figures and images). There were many hundreds of Mithraic temples in the Roman Empire, the greatest concentrations have been found in the city of Rome itself.

MIRACLES

Among those 'saviors' who, like Jesus, performed countless miracles include: Horus, Chrishna, Buddha, Dionysus, Mithra, Osirus, and Adonis. Horus was said to have walked on water, just as Jesus did. In addition, Horus raised one man, El-Azarus, from the dead in front of countless witnesses. In the case of Buddha, it was told that he fed five hundred men with one loaf of bread, that he cured lepers, and that he caused the blind to see. Dionysus rescued a person from dying when the person was utterly desolate and placed them among the stars. And he gave food and drink, herbs and berries, to the starving people -- not to mention turning water into wine.

BOTTOM LINE:

Christianity stole all its myths from older cultures.

There's nothing unique about Jesus' mother, his birth, his teachings, his paranormal powers, his death, his resurrection and his disciples.

FU-CK the bloody evil sorcerers, JESUS and MARY.

You Jew make Mary out to be a young Jew whore eager to have sex with an unknown entity.
You disregard Mary's Mitzvah education. the Hebrew word mitzvah does not mean “a good deed” in that sense. Mitzvah literally means “commandment.” In fact, Jewish tradition understands exactly 613 mitzvot (plural of mitzvah) to be derived from the Hebrew Bible. It is not simply a “good deed,” for example, to refrain from murdering or stealing. And similarly, the mitzvot which deal with feeding the poor, acting kindly to the stranger, or observing the Sabbath are much more significant in the Jewish tradition than mere divine suggestions on how to be good. Mitzvot are commandments, traditionally understood to come from God and to be intended for the Jewish people to observe.
Mitzvah is the command from God to choose life.
Mary choose to bring the life of Jesus into the world.
Anything but. Mary, according to Luke was a witness to things beyond her control. Nobody asked Mary according to Luke.

Well wait a second First you suggest they made it all up. Then you call Jesus a sorcerer. Why would you call him a sorcerer? Is it based on accounts that you are trying to prove as fictional?

<quoted text>How did Mary define her own freedom? What was the purpose of her existence, in her own mind?
You cast aspersions on the Christian "god" because you are only thinking in terms of negation, that is, Mary could not be truly free unless she could say "No" to "an offer that couldn't be refused." I posit that Mary could only know the fullness of the reason for her own existence by submitting to the annunciation with her entire being. Saying "Yes" to God is how she defined her own freedom, and is how she defined it for her entire life. God did not barge in on her space and give her an ultimatum. She had been prepared for this from the moment of her own conception.
Mary could have said "No," but that would have been a repudiation of all that she was and ever hoped to be, imo.
Show me that in your scriptures.

To be honest, Mary lived in a time when women had no rights. Luke is a testament to the plight of women in the first century CE.

I don't really see the point. If I KNEW God was asking me to do something, I would not be crazy enough to question it. So I still don't even see the issue of consent entering in. As I said before, in a way we have all had things done to us without our consent, starting with our birth itself. Right from the very beginning.
