Who Is Allah?

There are 230655 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?”

there will never be enough medicine on this planet, that can replace G-D. there is no worldly idolaterous way, you can compensate for being without G-D.

Frijoles--I am giving you the honest answer. We have discussed the implications of midrash vs halacha in the past, and you havent grasped the difference. I fear you will lift my answer out of context as usual.

HughBe--- Correct me if I am wrong but midrash is interpretation whereas halacha is law. It is my hope that I have not taken your words out of context.
Incorrect. Its all interpretation.

The difference is that Halacha, as law is application, while midrash is stories and homilies - much of it acknowledged as fiction, and not meant for application as law. Midrash is a different textual genre, and therefore has different uses, none of them to derive normative, universalistically accepted theology or canon.

Early christianity would be the ODES of SOLOMON.
Just look it up, especially verse 19.
And than we go to the 4th century!
Even the church-history was written then, and does not match up with f.i. the Eastern church. Given the same start, all sources from the earliest on should match. Right?
Well they do not.
So once you are confronted with such things, you apply even more scrutiny.
So what you have is a book that has been reworked countless times, to make it the comfortable thing, you presume it to be now.
But as you state it did not start out like that.
Nice, to have at least that admission accomplished.

The koran is a different kettle. MUQ is more fun.
God's Catholic Church never was a fundamentalist church. It was not until the 16th century that martin luther took it upon himself to elevate the bible to a place it never was meant to be by God. martin luther made the bible into a god; much like the muslims make the koran.

The Catholic Church has the correct understanding of the Holy Bible and its place in salvation history. Read the prologues and foot notes in any approved Holy Bible and you will see the Catholic Church is not afraid of the truth in knowing how the Holy Bible came about.

Your holy books written by 3rd/4th century pagans and non theologians has as much authority over me as do the Harry Potter books. Your bookd have to be written many times by many people to make them look believable but they are works of fiction that fail to measure up to even Harry potter books.

In your so-called holy Bible, there is a book known as John. When ignorant fools read his book after two centuries, they started quarreling. Some fools took "The Father and I are one" to mean as if Jesus was claiming to be God or the Father.
Other clueless fools, who had no knowledge of the real Jewish Holy Scriptures fell foolish for John's opening line "In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God" and took Jesus as God. By the way, this translation is a 15th Century forgery.
For centuries, the fools never read the most important lines John 17:3 and John 20:31, quoted as follows:
"And this is everlasting life, that they know thee very God alone [that they know thee alone very God], and whom thou hast sent, Jesus Christ."
"But these be written, that ye believe, that Jesus is Christ, the Son of God, and that ye believing have life in his name."
These lines demolishes the false, stupid and absurd treacherous claim that Jesus was God.
So, now ye must know and understand that God was the Sender and Jesus was the dispatch rider.
Jesus told the Jews He was God. The first chapter of the Gospel of St John further proclaims Jesus is God.

The whole end days revolves around Islam and the restoration of their Caliphate (Beast Empire). The muslims and Iranian president are declaring the coming of the Islamic Messiah, called Imam Madhi. The Iranian president even preached this an the UN.

Finally the Mark of the beast has been revealed as the Mark of the coming Islamic Caliphate. Please don't take the Mark or bow to the Image of the Islamic Empire.
Read Gods Warning:
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." (Revelation 14:9-11).
rabbee: then you need to read, Revelation and Parashas Bereesheees again. that all on earth are decieved for a finite period of time even adam and his mate. so it is not necessarily they, who are all decieved but the you all also. as you all need to truly evaluate, where in the hell you truly are here in TheLivingScripture.

for we are not all here thrice again, on our own accord. but truly by, the accord of G-D. if you all think, you are all here. by the command of your same again parents. then you are, all mistaken. about who Commanded, all the exact same people here again. with everyone and everything, in the exact same place as twice before. and every baby that was born pysically before has been precisely physically born again.

When i mention the names of various bibles and translations as written and composed by your catholic church, yuo ask ME, what i'm talking about!
---- Look up bible criticism

The second post:
The roman catholic encyclopedia.
can also be googled
So reed that post again, and wiki might be helpfull in looking up certain concepts, but apperently 'catechism'(maybe this spelling, yup that's it.)
So i tried to point the way to concepts that most roman catholics are familiar with.

Which usually makes discussion easier and more interesting.
----
The salvation notion came later...now it is there...that is the point we are making.
it was not so from the beginning.
But you allready admitted that.
But reading the text some people still say that there is no salvation in the text!
Only by the church!

Ah they do if you have written the same thing hundreds of times to the same poster.

But the concepts of folkbelieve 'evil' that HB is on about, is not part of the universal set of believes.(see Frijoles post)
Judaism does not beive in branding people.
But every year you start over and make the firm commitment to 'hit the mark'(from the greek translation, but it is a nice image)'loser".
But you loose your temper and you are 'on course to miss the mark'.
But absolute EVIL and absolute GOOD find no place in the philosophy. And most certainly not as characters. Or branding who someone is.
Though we would have 'the simple folk' that would have their stories. Nothing wrong with that, we all like a good story.
Satan (to use the english form) opposer but mainly those that speak evil behind your back with the intent to cause malice. Anathema: giving false evidence, can be compared to that.

So judais is not that lugubrious dark religion people made it in christinaity.

Only the 16th century as persecutor? We and history disagree. it's an interesting history how europe got (gekerstend) christianized.
Slavs got their name from being enslaved farmers (kozaks) taken in the 10th century and forced to convert, and fight for Vienna. Muslims did the same. Well we had that little tif in former Yugoslavia. ;P It's a long and shady history.

There are no scholars who say there are two different Jesus' as you claim there are; making your arguments foolhardy and nonsense to the intellectual.
