Who Is Allah?

There are 254889 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?”

Hopefully, Jesus, Paul, Peter etc and the early Christians were not anti-Jewish given that they were Jews and that Christianity was known as a Jewish sect for centuries.

Hopefully, Judaites or members of Judaism are no longer anti-Christians and anti-Jews who believe in Jesus, the Jews, as the Judaites certainly got it wrong in persecuting the early Christians starting from the time of Jesus.

A quick one, Buford

And after another century or two, it it will find itself totally wrong and would disband itself.

Eric---The only true way to understand scripture is to read it in its original form and interpret it for oneself
HughBe--- How in the name of Jesus can YOU honestly make your first comment above when YOU know that I do not know Hebrew or any other language except English?
So instead you make toilet reference?

Eric is correct. You didnt desire an answer. You were looking for a response, aby response, so that you could move on with your preconceived argument.

Eric knew that. Not only was he correct, but he as being clever. Very clever.

Your response? "Wipe my butt?"???

Speaking of your studies into truth - How is that book I sent you the link to? Have you finished the first chapter yet? Do you know the aleph bet yet?

interesting take
why didn't Jesus, the apostles and church fathers find slavery and anti-Jewish sentiment repugnant? why must it happen eventually, after they were gone? by right, their version of Christianity should be the most ideal

because it was NOT Christianity that "found slavery and anti-Jewish sentiment repugnant"?
the eventual enlightenment came IN SPITE of Christianity

Like Christianity, Judaism is also informed and changed by its surrounding culture, no? Maybe it was inevitable, but imo the worst thing that could have happened to Christianity was when it became the official religion of Rome.

Keep in mind that Hughbe is a fundamentalist Christian with limited ability to perform biblical exegesis, and more significantly, he strongly does not believe in the interpretation and guidance of the sefer hamitzvot.

Excerpt:
The legality of slavery in Islam, together with the example of the Prophet Muhammad, who himself bought, sold, captured, and owned slaves, may explain why slavery persisted until the 19th century in many places (and later still in some countries). The impetus for the abolition of slavery came largely from colonial powers, although some Muslim thinkers argued strongly for abolition.

I can't help wondering if those Muslim thinkers who argued strongly THEN for abolition of slavery would TODAY be condemned as heretics and apostates and be subject to all manner of abuse and even death fatwas?

HughBe--- The CORRUPT teaching,CURSE OF HAM, of rabbis or the gods of Judaism explains the role of Jews in SLAVERY.

Of course, I expect Frijoles and company to deny both the CURSE of HAM doctrine of the Talmud or rabbinic teachings as well as the involvement of Jews in slavery. I have learnt about their manner.

The fact is Slavery has been practiced by virtually all peoples of the world and there are no VIRGINS there are certainly DECEIVERS but no VIRGINS.

HughBe--- If I were you I would focus on acquiring the ability to understand my own words. See below for an example of your LACK of understanding and RESPECT among other things.

Frijoles to another poster----"To begin with, call us Jews. Thats what WE CALL ourselves. Unless you are incapable of even that attempt of respect."

HughBe--- YOU my boy have called me "a fundamentalist Christian" BUT I have NEVER called myself that. Are YOU that "incapable of even that attempt of RESPECT" dear Judaite?

WE have had exchanges about me being called a Christian and from it even the simple knows that I don't call myself a Christian and to add FUNDAMENTALIST to it is nothing short of your typical MALICE.

Have some RESPECT for yourself and for others. You are not the only human and I am not a sub-human.

My dick is not big because I did anal and neither is yours small because of you doing anal it is small because of genes.

What's interesting here is that Bufford was not discussing the Jews (as he had already discussed them previously). Naturally Hugh had to deflect the discussion back to castigate the Jews as no discussion by Hugh would be complete without castigating the Jews. Note, however, that he fails to castigate the believers in Jesus as a member of the Triune by name.
