“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?”

Hello Shamma, have you ever wondered what your religion was before the "church" forced its will on people about 1700 years ago?
For many thousands of years before that people lived and died without a Jewish man dying for their sins!
** I have aksed you many questions. While you answer them...
*** You say God is the creator of all human beings. I agree that God is the CREATOR, and Jesus is a CREATION just like all of us.
*** Then you switch on your "guilt" complex stories!!
*** Did you tell Adam to sin? So why are you worried?
*** Who told you Adam's sin lands on your head? Why?
If Adam steals a wallet do you get punished for it?
*** If you didn't tell adam to sin and didn't tell Jesus to die for the sins, then surely they should leave you alone!
** Did you know that Jesus NEVER claimed he came to die for your sins!!! So why are you blindly listening to nutcases?
*** The church gives you the cock and bull story about sin and guilt to extract money and confession from you...They have NO power to absolve anything!
*** God can EASILY forgive sins. There is no need for this PAGAN drama...using HUMAN SACRIFICE, FRESH BLOOD drinking and RAW FLESH eating with a naked pagan dangling from a phallic pole. These are SATANIC, CANNIBALISTIC and vestige from PAGAN FERTILITY RITES!
*** The biggest misconception that is brushed under church carpets is the FACT that PEOPLE still DIE..NOT a SINGLE PERSON SINCE CREATION has ESCAPED DEATH!!!
THEREFORE, the ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE of JESUS has CHANGED NOTHING!
The BIGGEST LIE they PUMPED was "ETERNAL LIFE ON EARTH" soon after the POOR FALL GUY was put to DEATH ON THE CROSS!
NOTHING HAPPENED!!!...
ALL THOSE who BELIEVE in this STUPID DEATH also DIE!!!!!
JESUS NEVER CLAIMED HE CAME to TAKE ON theE SIN of the WORLD.
READ THE GOSPELS...HE CAME ONLY for the JEWS and was NOT generally INTERESTED IN THE WORLD as such!!! LOL
YOU ERRONEOUSLY CLAIM "the penalty of death for sin remained for those that did not believe in Jesus and the redemption works of Jesus on the Cross"
WHAT the HELL do YOU MEAN BY THIS?
YOU DIE, despite your BELIEF in your "JESUS"?
ALL HUMANS DIE ONE DAY irrespective of what they believe!!
WHAT CHANGED FROM the DEATH on the CROSS??? NOTHING!
YOU ARE TALKING RUBBISH!!
PROVE to me that THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN YOUR MANGOD DON'T DIE!
You are are expressing you ignorance Alex.
You disregard the law of God.
A sin, mistake, or miss the mark under the law is a punishable offense.
Repentance does not change the law.

You steal a car and break the law, no matter how much you repent and are sorry for what you did, you still are sent to jail.
Gods law are no different then our civil laws.

You are ignorant Alex.

Don't forget to explain Trinity to me. Trinity was inspired by Satan.
Nothing new, the Catholic Church is well aware of history of the Holy Bible and since it is not a fundementalist church, as protestant churches are, it does not matter there are changes made to it. What is important is that the Catholic Church preserved the Holy Bible and it is her book and she only can properly understand it. It is the Catholic Church that speaks for God today not some book. The Holy Bible can only be understood in light of Sacred Scripture.

Get a good approved Catholic edition of the Holy Bible and you can find in the prolouge and foot notes comments pointing out many of the problems with the early manuscripts.

The Catholic Church has no problems with these manuscript problems because the Catholic Church does not say the Holy Bible is a word for word dictation from God. The very fact that there is no original manuscript proves the fundemenatalist approach to the Holy Bible, as it is with the koran, an error. God never intended the Holy Bible to be elevated to the place some protestants place it. On the other hand God has had no hand at all in the making of the koran.

This is a great question and my answer is: Yes, Yahweh died fro all Christians and behold! Yahweh is dead! He died for post-Jesus Christians.
Who else did Yahweh die for before Jesus?
Praise be to none! Yahweh is dead! And the alleged Son is alive!
“Jehovah is the God ...
of the Living”

Is death stronger than God? Of course not! How
could death—or any other “enemy”—be stronger
than “God Almighty”?(1 Corinthians 15:26; Exodus
6:3) God has the power to undo death by
means of the resurrection, and he promises to do
just that in his new world. How sure is that promise?
God’s own Son, Jesus, tells us with words that
can fill our hearts with hope.—Read Matthew 22:
31, 32.
Speaking to the Sadducees, who did not believe
in the resurrection, Jesus said:“As regards
the resurrection of the dead, did you not read
what was spoken to you by God, saying,‘I am the
God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God
of Jacob’? He is the God, not of the dead, but of
the living.” Jesus here referred to the conversation
that God had with Moses at the burning bush
about 1514 B.C.E.(Exodus 3:1-6) According to Jesus,
Jehovah’s words to Moses—“I am the God of
Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of
Jacob”—indicate that the resurrection promise is
certain to be fulfilled. How so?
Consider first the setting. At the time that Jehovah
spoke to Moses, the patriarchs Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob had long been dead—Abraham
for 329 years, Isaac for 224, and Jacob for 197.
Yet, Jehovah said “I am”—not “I was”—their God.
Jehovah spoke of those three dead patriarchs as
if they were still alive. Why?

Quran is not a biology or chemistry or other Science book but a book with gives authentic message to mankind. It has all scientific miracle and is explained indirectly. God says he created brain eyes mouth and we have to use them.
Incorrect.

A book claiming to come directly from God as an eternal guide to humankind should contain everything about the universe and serve as a reference manual for scientists but here we see multiple flaws in the Quran whenever it attempts dealing with subjects that science deals with.

Jesus explained:“He [Jehovah] is the God, not
of the dead, but of the living.” Think for a moment
about the implication of those words. If there were
no resurrection, then Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

would remain forever in the clutches of death. If
that were so, Jehovah would be the God of corpses.
That, in turn, would mean that death is stronger
than Jehovah—as if he were too weak to free
his faithful servants from the grip of death.
What, then, may we conclude about Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob, and all faithful servants of Jehovah
who have died? Jesus made this forceful statement:
“They are all living to him.”(Luke 20:38) Indeed,
Jehovah’s purpose to resurrect his faithful
servants who have died is so sure of fulfillment
that he thinks of them as living.(Romans 4:16,
17) Jehovah will keep all such ones in his limitless
memory until his due time to restore them to
life.
Does the prospect of being reunited with a
dead loved one appeal to you? If so, remember
that Jehovah is infinitely stronger than death.

Jehovah is infinitely stronger
than death

Nothing can stop him from fulfilling his promise to
resurrect the dead.Why not learnmore about the
resurrection promise and the God who will fulfill
it? Doing so will surely draw you closer to Jehovah,
“the God ... of the living.”

My original point was that what Allah challenged the law of cause-effect. You have not applied a scientific approach to my question but rather a superficial answer that any simple Muslim can give.
Also there is no such a thing as scientific miracle.
Where science is concerned you seem to be light years from it.
It will be useless discuss with you the Quran under scientific scrunity.

RE-THINK AMONG JEWS:

Circumcision is an act of mutilation that sends a searing shock along the nerves unbalancing the fine nerve currents leading to the brain. I am circumcised as per tradition. These days an emerging trend among forward-thinking Jews is to withhold from circumcising their male children as they find it a form of abuse done without the consent of the child.

Rabbee,
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is political and has nothing to do with Islam or Judaism.
To me, both the Israelis and the Palestinians are idiots. G-d is not going to care a damn about the two fools.
Why would others settle their problems? It is in their own interest that this problems remains perpetual and it is amazing to see both bloody fools asking others to settle.
rabbee: i was not talking about, the israeli-palestinian conflict. i am talking about the muslem to muslem conflicts all over the world, even in the philipines today. and yes G-D does care, or THEY would not be giving this world hell. since no conflict takes place, unless G-D has commanded it to happen.

and do not give me with this crap, that all alleged as politics does not have religious consequences. and if you are not going to do as G-D desires, then G-D is never going to give you with a settlement. muslems are on the verge of losing it all, just like everyone else in this world that has thouroughly pissed off G-D.

i do not think any of you, are living in the reality. of just in how much precision control G-D is of this world. or are you one of this hypocrites, who only think that global warming is not a sign of G-D'S extreem anger with this whole world? if you pleasing to the devil, your going to tick off G-D. and it is only a matter of time then, before G-D takes action.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-49

Chapter 103 On Penitence

The weeping of the sinner ought to be like that of a father who weeps over his son [who is] near to death. O madness of man, that weeps over the body from which the soul is departed, and [yet] does not weep over the soul from which the mercy of God has departed because of sin!

Tell me, if the mariner, when his ship has been wrecked by a storm, could recover all that he had lost by weeping, what would he do? It is certain that he would weep bitterly. But I say to you truly, that in every thing [for which] a man weeps, he sins, except when he weeps for his sin. For every misery that comes to man comes to him from God for his salvation, so that he should rejoice [when it befalls him]. But sin comes from the devil for the damnation of man, and [yet] man is not sad about that. Surely here you can perceive that man seeks loss and not profit." …

Chapter 104 Continued

'Truly there are men who have both the inward affection and the outward tears. But he who is thus, will be a Jeremiah. In weeping, God measures more the sorrow than the tears.' Then said John: "O master, how does man lose in weeping over things other than sin?" Jesus answered:'If Herod; should give you a mantle to keep for him, and afterwards should take it away from you, would you have reason to weep?'

"No," said John. Then Jesus said:'Now has man less reason to weep when he loses aught, or has not that which he would; for all comes from the hand of God. Accordingly, shall not God have power to dispose at his pleasure of his own things, O foolish man? For you have of your own, sin alone; and for that ought you to weep, and not for aught else.'
Matthew said: "O master, you have confessed before all Judea that God has no similitude like man, and now you have said that man receives from the hand of God; accordingly, since God has hands he has a similitude with man." Jesus answered:'You are in error, O Matthew, and many have so erred, not knowing the sense of the words.

For man ought to consider not the outward [form] of the words, but the sense; seeing that human speech is as it were an interpreter between us and God. Now knew you not, that when God willed to speak to our fathers on mount Sinai, our fathers cried out: "Speak you to us, O Moses, and let not God speak to us, lest we die"? And what said God by Isaiah the prophet, but that, so far as the heaven is distant from the earth, even so are the ways of God distant from the ways of men, and the thoughts of God from the thoughts of men?

You are very naive....
You do know that 0 to 1st century is less advanced than 7th century, meaning nearly 600 years behind the 7th century people?
You realise that you worship a 1st century Jewish teacher who applied to become Jewish Messiah and was rejected by the majority of Jews?
You also realise that your failed candidate was SO educated that he NEVER left a SINGLE verse in his own handwriting?
Which to many means he was possibly pretty clueless/uneducated too?!
