Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story 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?”

Did Jesus absolve you of the need to observe the Sabbath too? Thats a heavy one, I believe its one of the ten commandments.

How does one keep up their faith in a dogma like that while still interacting with the greater world?
It is precisely "a dogma like that" that can keep people grounded in truth, while the rest of "the greater world" is going to "pro-choice" hell.

The first five books of the Holy Bible have been translated by God's Catholic Church into many languages. These translations have been approved of, under the divine authority given God's Catholic Church, through the Keys given St Peter. Jesus said that whatsoever His Church binds and loses on earth will be bond and loosed in Heaven. When the Catholic Church puts her seal of approval on a version the Holy Bible then God puts His seal of approval on it as well.
rabbee: translated??? i think that is an extreemly poor choice of words, for what they actually fantacized.

Christians have a day of rest, or Sabbath. They call it "Sunday."

How do you know the first five books of the Holy Bible are of divine origin? Did some people who preserved them say they are? Who are these people? Maybe they just made it all up since they have no divine authority to speak for God on the validity of these first five books.
rabbee: so you have never, heard of TheTorah Scroll??? or are you even, more ignorant than a muslem???

Jesus promised to remain with His Church always, so when the Catholic Church speaks, Jesus, God speaks. We don't have to try to guess what some character from thousands of years ago may do, for we have "God with us", Emanuel, to teach us.

The Christian Bible is definitely corrupt. There are lots of forgeries, edits and re-edits. It is a never ending process. Now, they do it through translations.
Not other Abrahamic religions. It is Christianity that falls because it has no leg to stand upon.

Pardon me, I thought I recollected that you did follow the word of God - pure and unadulturated.
I follow Jesus, not a book, not even the Holy Bible. Jesus did not hand out bibles, or even the Torah, for His disciples to follow. No, he said come follow after Me.

I say that because the good LORD said there was no other besides the LORD.
This Holy Spirit, which you talk about, really does not guide as it does not exist.
If this thing known as the Holy Spirit really existed and had guided, then Arius, Athanasius and others would not have quarreled and there would have been no Council of Nicaea. Also, you would not have needed a pagan emperor to guide and fix them.
This Holy Spirit misleads people.
To many Christians it says that Jesus is the Son of God. To others, it says that Jesus is God. To some, it says that God came down as Jesus. How can one trust this Holy Spirit, which says different things to folks?
So, you can see that it has misled Christians. It cannot be trusted.
rabbee: then you automaticly denounce the authenticity, of your own scriptures. if you are not on, TheSide of G-D. then you cannot possibly be with TheHolySpirit of G-D. are you doing this, in order to deny your with the unholy spirit against G-D? this would be the resaon anyone would deny, Ruach HaKodesh.

God desires in the end of times to have His people keep holy the day of our salvation when Jesus rose from the dead. He conveyed this through His Holy Catholic Church.

I see no reason to read the first five books in Hebrew because we do not have the original manuscripts. We are dependent of men of God to pass on the truth to us through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit that gave us the original writings is still with us to guide us in whatever language we wish to read them in today.
rabbee: so you afraid, to find out, you and your church have been wrong all along???

God's Catholic Church has been given divine authority to speak for Him; I have not. God's Catholic Church has a prophetic mission to speak for God. Why would you listen to Moses when you can talk to God yourself? Don't you trust your relationship with God?

Jeremiah 31:31-34

New International Version (NIV)

31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel
and with the people of Judah.
32 It will not be like the covenant
I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt,
because they broke my covenant,
though I was a husband to them,”
declares the Lord.
33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
34 No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another,‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the Lord.
“For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.”

Hmm... maybe this new covenant business allows for the consumption of shellfish and an alternative Sabbath Day.

There is no word for word translation from one language to another. Each translation is subject to the judgement of the translator. In any event the Catholic Church can put God's seal of approval on those that conform to the original meaning God intended.
rabbee: they do not have the authority, to put G-D'S Seal on anything. they do not have the authority, to do G-D'S Job. even i and the woman, do not have that authority, for about another 60 years. G-D did not write their books, they did. and the pope, is neither G-D nor HaMosheeach. and i fear the alleged holy see, is unholy as hell. if the church were actually holy, they would not of allowed pedofile preists to exist. nor would they violate, G-D'S Command to be fruitfull and multiply.

Frijoles---I spent time and energy responding to your questions last night (24 hrs ago) in a serious manner

HughBe--- very UNTRUE. A YES or a NO even now would have settled the matter. Instead you have chosen to write epistles after epistles rather than say YE or NO.

The fact that you opt to write epistles rather than say YES or NO tells everyone that your claim about answering is FALSE.

How many letters are in your current post? Do you know that the MAXIMUM number of letters in the answer to my TWO questions are 6?

1.Are YOU telling me that God Almighty did NOT call Israel GOY?
2.Is the transliterated word GOY in the passage that follows? "And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy NATION. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel"
