Who Is Allah?

There are 219896 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?”

Dotn shoot the messenger
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?

In the good old days FALSE messengers like you would have been STONED.

From that site

The Mosaic law did not establish slavery - at most it accorded to it a very modified toleration. It accepted it as an existing usage, labouring to the utmost to reduce, and as far as that was practicable, to abolish, the cvils connected with it. It could not well do more, for slavery, under the then existing conditions of society, was in some form or other almost inevitable, and was often the only alternative to a worse evil. Yet the law in its entire spirit and fundamental doctrines was opposed to slavery.

HughBe---They were either DECEIVED fools or CORRUPT men. Nowhere in the NT does it promote the enslavement of people.
Ephesians 6:5-9: "Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him."

Colossians 4:1: "Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven."

1 Timothy 6:1-3 "Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;"

Take your time to read OUR scriptures as they are going over your head. The passages are NOT ADVOCATING slavery.

Get help in understanding them.

I shall not waste time, self-deceiver. My questions about Jews being involved in slavery etc. came long before the BS that you are asking. Are you that STUPID not to know this? YOU are deflecting, you dumb ass.

Oh yes they do. They do not speak out against it. They tell the enslaved that they should obey their masters like a member of their Triune g-d. They fail to tell the masters that slavery is wrong. If they tell the slaves that they must obey their masters as G-d, what message is that sending to the masters about the correctness of their actions?

Did you read the LAST part of my post i.e. 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.

Explain my words above.

Post 157811 my questions to you.

1.Were Jews involved in SLAVERY?

2.Is there a teaching in Judaism about the Curse of Ham?

Post 157814 is where YOUR question is.

Where I live 157811 comes before 157814. I suspect that you at least know this but you have to resort to your training of DECEPTION.

Is their a teaching amongst the believers in Jesus as a member of the Triune about the Curse of Ham? Read Goldenberg's book.

Is Goldenberg a Christian? If not, using your consistent logic of the past he is NOT in a position to truly understand OUR scriptures and neither are YOU. He should let Christians explain it to him. In addition he should seek out the explanation from several denominations given that there are well over 30,000 DIFFERENT denominations in Christianity.

Now, very BASIC manners say that YOU should answer my questions which were asked BEFORE yours. Deception says that you should do as you are now doing.

Post 157811 my questions to you.

1.Were Jews involved in SLAVERY?

2.Is there a teaching in Judaism about the Curse of Ham?

Post 157814 is where YOUR question is.

My first comment goes like this , nowhere in the NT does it PROMOTE the enslavement of people. The passages below do NOT contradict this assertion.

The one that you have responded to says this, the passages are NOT ADVOCATING slavery.Again, the passages below do NOT contradict this assertion.

I'm now saying to you that because you are NOT a native speaker of English the context and the language of the passages are going over your head and so are my words i.e NT does not PROMOTE the ENSLAVEMENT of people and the passages are NOT ADVOCATING slavery

Again, the passages are NOT ENCOURAGING people to ENSLAVE others they are speaking about the treatment of servants and their CONDUCT. Get help in understanding the passages and my words but not your brain-dead deceptive rabbis.



Ephesians 6:5-9: "Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
