Who Is Allah?

There are 256014 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?”

What nonsense is this Apostolic Succession? Such terms are junk and stuff coined by the minions of Satan.
Haven't you read the Catechism of the RCC, where it says that there was so much confusion that the Church had to coin new terms to explain her ridiculous balderdash? Don't you ever dare try to lie about RCC's Catechism. That junk and stuff is right here with me and I have wasted hours reading the damn lies! There is not a word from Jesus or God in it!
When did God tell Jesus to go and preach? Can you show me that in your NT?
As for Muhammad, God told through Qur'aan that he was the Messenger of God.
What is the Koran; a book like Harry Potter? So a book dictated by mohammad says mohammad is god's messenger? How convenient! Who in their right mind would believe such drivel?

It would be fun to see an Ex-Father and the New-Father in the Vatican.
They never had two Popes living in the same quarters.
Do you think that the New-Father will be sitting on the right hand of the Retired Father?
lol....
Two unmarried men living together in the same quarters?
What will the world think about them?

God does move in mysterious ways!

Finally Frijoles sees the collapse of homophobic Catholic Church during his lifetime!

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA - PART 3 - LSD:

Page 100

What is LSD and what is its effect on the human mind and body?

"This is a key question I asked myself for many years," replied Stan Grof. "The search for typical, mandatory pharmacological effects of LSD was an important aspect of my early analytical work on the LSD data.....After analyzing 3000 records from LSD sessions, I have not found a single symptom that would be an absolutely mandatory and invariant component of the LSD experience. The absence of any distinct drug-specific effects and the enormous range of phenomena that occur during these sessions have convinced me that LSD is best understood as a powerful unspecific amplifier, or catalyst, of mental processes, which facilitates the emergence of unconscious material from different levels of the human psyche. The richness and enormous variability of the LSD experience can be explained in this way by the fact that the entire personality of the subject and the structure of his or her unconscious play a decisive role. I realized that rather than studying the specific effects of a psychotic drug on the brain, I would be able to use LSD as a powerful research tool for the exploration of the human mind. When you compare material from consecutive LSD sessions of the same person, it becomes evident that there is a definite continuity, a successive unfolding of deeper and deeper levels of the unconscious. On this inner journey a person may first move through a Freudian phase, then pass through a death-rebirth experience that can be loosely referred to as Rankian, and the advanced sessions of the same person may have a mythological and religious quality that can best be described in Jungian terms. All these psychotherapeutic systems can therefore be useful for certain stages of LSD process."

QUESTIONS:

1) What is the unconscious as compared to the subconscious and the subliminal?

2) Why does a chemical like LSD confer on us these experiences in consciousness?

3) What is at the root of the LSD experiences?

4) What is the mind?

Christians say that the believe in only one God but they butcher that God into three co-equal and distinct persons. This butchery of God, was NOT taught and preached by Jesus. So, cut that out, please.
3rd-6th Century idiots and ignorant fools read the confounding garbage in John and through John, came up with the absurd Trinity or the Triune God.
Is it not ironic, BMZ?
The "holy" RC church that "allegedly" believes in "one god" has butchered that god into many unequal parts (although they claim co-this and co-that!).......

while the "satanic" muslims who "allegedly" believe in "god plus three goddesses"(Astaghfirullah !!) have put all these together to end up with "ONE GOD"!!!!!!!!!!

Joel, the problem with psychiatry and psychiatrist is that they have a measure of understanding the problem through educated analysing/guessing, BUT they lack the divine ability to deal with and bring healing to the inner being, the soul of man. Drugs are their only answer.

Dead religion like Islam, Catholics, Hinduism, etc, also can spot the problem but try by means of force or self-denial to address the issue.

Pseudo-intelectuals like you, JOEL and brainwashed goofs like MUQ and bmz are very wize in their own understanding but truly add no value by their excessive postings. Empty words, empty words, the blind leading the blind with both falling in the ditch!!!!

Incidently, stats show that the highest incidents of SUICIDE among the medical fraternal in the Western world is the psychiatrist, proving the point of him seeing the problem and having no cure.

Muslims are the same - suicide murderers, gang rapists, etc, is their only answer to the inner problem of SIN!

While you guys post so verbosely about the Bible and Jesus, you will continue to walk in darkness. To acknowledge to Jesus that you dont understand anything divine, and ask Him to open your understanding, will give God the permission to enlighten you with truth. Jesus said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."

EVOLUTION OF MATTER OR OF CONSCIOUSNESS?

Evolution means the successive emergences in matter of the involved grades of consciousness with each gradation engineering its unique material form. To imagine that sentience emerged from insentient chemicals and that life-forms of superior information content evolved from life-forms of inferior information content is outrageously paradoxical and a shocking assault on the human intelligence.

Normally, the Pope does not get anything but death. That is his reward and he goes back home to reside with his Lord.
A few resigned and a few were deposed but received nothing.
If the Pope knows FOR SURE he goes back "home" to reside with his Lord after his "death" why does he go around in BULLET PROOF Popemobiles??? Surely he ought to make sure he goes as soon as possbile to sit on the right hand side of the right hand?

(I thought Popes conquered death & grabbed eternal life by accepting BJ's willing & "unconditional" sacrifice!)...

EVOLUTION is an act of VOLITION of the inherent consciousness in a system as it emerges from a state of involution with the materialization of its concomitant energy content.

The words "pure" and "impure" as applied to sentient entities are misnomers since being is a mixture of many states or gradations of existence. The parts and planes of a sentient entity can exist in either of the two states - "balance" or "imbalance".
JOEL

#163000 Feb 11, 2013
PERFECT BALANCE among the various parts and planes of being means perfect immunity from wear and tear and decomposition with the result being physical immortality. The stupendous feat of attaining to a state of perfect balance cannot be executed via the ordinary consciousness.

MONEY is not a hollow convention; it carries with it a universal consciousness-force (of garnering material resources) that manifests in those who can efficiently galvanize their faculties and adjust these with the environment to yield the best results (within their innate capacity) in terms of material or financial gains. Dishonest means of earning money involve perverse universal mechanisms at work.

#163002 Feb 11, 2013
EXALTED HUMAN ACTIVITY involves making serious, passionate and sustained attempts at moving into the next plane of consciousness and manifesting that in matter to refine its workings. Oh! enough of unregenerate matter and enough of moving in mindless circles around the same set of puerile and evanescent material goals.

Those who believe in Jesus shall have eternal life. When you are baptized you become a new creation in Christ, you are born again of the water and the Spirit, you become partakers in the life of God through grace, you become adopted children of God, and heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.

You who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit shall be cast into the lake of fire, the second death!
