Who Is Allah?

There are 253944 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?”

Christianity is the only religion which is different to the rest of the world religions. All false religions, try buy heaven by doing good works, they all put their faith in themselves and their ability to earn heaven. Thinking that they can purify themselves. This is what is known as PRIDE. Your faith in not in God, but in yourself, and you think you can earn or buy your way into heaven. But christianity says, I am a sinner, and need God to save me. It puts its faith totally in God and what he has done for us.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9).
The Pride sin of Satan exists in all Satan's false religions. For they all look inwardly toward self and self exaltation. Literally thinking they can't somehow raised themselves to heaven by their own efforts. This was Satan's sin of Pride. And its found in all the false religions created by Satan.

There is no spirituality in Christianity. It has lots of Shits but zero spirituality.

Baptism is a big horse shit!

Let me tell you that this horse shit known as baptism has no place in judaism and neither it has any place in Islam.

Baptism has never been a requirement in the mainstream Judaism, so where did this shit of Baptism come from?

Jesus was living in a village far from Jerusalem. Various sects were living in those remote areas.

John had his own sect and he was dunking his followers in the river for a good wash and then the men repented. That is all there is to it.

This baptism of Jesus by John is such a horrible bad shit, which the Christians are not aware of and
do not realize what it means.

It means that John purified Jesus and that Jesus repented!

Cut that bullshit out, John Preacher!

Christianity is not a religion. It is a runaway cult from Judaism. It is a false religion and everything about it is based on falsehood.

This religion is even worse than Hinduism. At least, the Hindus have a clear Trinity. They know the three deities in their Godhead.

And look at the absurd and monstrous Trinity of Christianity:

Father is not the son. Father is not the Ghost.
The son is not the Father. The son is not the Ghost.
The Ghost is not the Father. The Ghost is not the son.

There are three in the absurd Godhead.

And then comes another , silly, stupid, false and absurd claim that Jesus is God. So, Jesus is the Father. Right?

See how messed up is Christianity? To me, Christianity is Satan's revenge against Jesus.

Moses slaughtered the lamb, as sacrifice for sin, on passover. Its blood cleansed the Jewish nation for the year. So why is it so hard to believe that a sinless man could take the place of the passover lamb, bringing atonement for sin by his blood, just as the lamb did?

My position is coming from a position of Truth. If I discovery a new atomic particle I would want to share this knowledge with everyone, whether they believe it or not. They may say I didn't find a new particle or they can perform the same experiment I performed to see if the particle truly exists. I found God and I will share the knowledge of Him to everyone, and they can say I am wrong or they can also seek God to see if I am right. As I said before there are many spiritual disciplines that may aid one in finding God.
Physics is a science has professional standards as per what is worthy of teaching others. Your philosophy does not scientific standards, so your argument is a false equivalence.

The point remains, you are not preaching because you WANT to, you are preaching because you NEED to, in order to construct your indentity (i.e. be who you are). That is an absurd way to go though life, in my opinion, and certainly very codependendent.

Who told you that Moses slaughtered the lamb as sacrifice for sin? Where does sin fit in the passover?

It had nothing to do with sin. Read Exodus 11.

Baptism IS rooted in Jewish ritual. It is also rooted in ritual of many other tribal groups. LAter Christians just put their own spin on the ritual.

In Judaism, we have the Mikveh (Hebrew for gathering of waters - for purification), and Brit Milah (circumcision - entrance in the covenant). What the Christians did was kind of combine both ceremonies (without the snip snip of course) and added on the notion of original sin as to what one is being baptized from.

In Judaism we also have Tashlich before Yom Kippur (the collective "casting" of sins in the nearest river or waterbody). Which by the way brings up an interesting question as per the spiritual impact on anyone using that same waterbody downstream to "purify" themselves during baptism. Maybe that explains a lot of behavior.

Can you give a passage from Exodus/Shemot that backs your premise that the lamb was a sacrifice for sin? Where does G-d say anything like this to Moses and Aaron?

Any thing CAN happen if it has to happen inside your head.

But did it actually happened is some thing else.

is it not good and beautiful, that no one on earth dies of hunger and sickness and accidents?

It is very good, but people do die because of these things and shall continue to die.

No one can take the sins of others, do you mean to say that blood of that lamb "took the sin of people" for one full year? Are you mad?

Does not need blood to forgive sins? What type of God is He?

The sacrifice is for humans to eat the meat and not for God. To Him does not reach any thing of the lamb, except piety and sincerity of your heart.

Sometime I do not understand how Western People think? They are so "Literal" minded.

That was the "main reason" why Paul could pull wool over they eyes of so many Roman Converts to 'His Version of Christianity"!!

The True Disciples of Jesus had no chance against some one so slippery as this St. Paul!!

lol to the last para.

Actually, ceremonial bathing or washing and ablutions do not really fall under Baptism.

We do the same before prayers. For example, after sex with my wife, I do the same but it cannot be said that I went through baptism or baptized myself.

That is why I did not mention those in the two paragraphs of yours.

Christianity has made a religion out of a cocktail of sin and baptism.

Thanks for the note.

Now, you will be told that the entire nation was subjected to slavery because of sin.

G-d said nothing to Moses but the Church did. Christianity and the Church are obsessed with sin. Take out sin and Christianity falls.

Leviticus 4

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying,‘If a person sins unintentionally in any of the things which the LORD has commanded not to be done, and commits any of them,
3 if the anointed priest sins so as to bring guilt on the people, then let him offer to the LORD a bull without defect as a sin offering for the sin he has committed.

22 ‘When a leader sins and unintentionally does any one of all the things which the LORD his God has commanded not to be done, and he becomes guilty,
23 if his sin which he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring for his offering a goat, a male without defect.

32 ‘But if he brings a lamb as his offering for a sin offering, he shall bring it, a female without defect.
33 ‘He shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering and slay it for a sin offering in the place where they slay the burnt offering.

and none of this pertains to the paschal lamb. It was not a burnt offering. It was not a bull. It was a meal.

And, taking the idea that it was a sacrifice ad argumentum, how come you discount that it was a sacrifice for thanksgiving rather than a sacrifice for sin? There is no mention of sin in the passages.
