Who Is Allah?

There are 230470 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 need for mumbo jumbo religious vows when marriage is a mere contract of convenience for unpaid sex, sexual procreation, financial security and companionship?

Why don't animals marry?
Even though animals can't technically "marry" (since that's something that only humans can do), there are some animal species who will mate and commit to each other for a long time. Over 90% of bird species are "socially monogamous" (meaning that the same two parents will help raise their babies); penguin dads will keep their eggs warm while mom goes off to look for food, while bald eagles will remain faithful to their mate until one of them dies! Other animals that mate for long periods of time include gorillas, dikdiks (a type of African antelope), and anglerfish.

In your case you are claiming that a man is your God which is totally crazy. So you are the person who needs to provide evidence.
No wonder you have forgotten God and worship a naked man.

Do religious vows sanctify or make pure a bond between man and woman? Far from it. Mere words uttered in the name of some god do not make marriage a sacred institution nor do they confer on the couple any psychological, vital or physical advantage. One can live together as man and wife even without taking these hollow vows. There's no causal mechanism that favors marriage. It's just another human device of convenience.

You don't need you tube for that.
Jesus was a JEWISH messenger sent to JEWS as THEIR Messiah (nobody elses) but they refused to accept him tried to kill him but God helped Jesus escape and hence probably the second coming?
Jesus did NOT come for Gentiles because he refused to deal with them and called them DOGS and PIGS.
If you love Jesus STOP worshipping him.
He will be at risk of being in hot excrement and semen as claimed in Talmud if you continue to worship Jesus instead of God.
If you worship Jesus you prove to them that Jesus was indeed a seducer who takes worship away from God.
Now that is the task of Satan.
Those who truly love Jesus must praise him and worship GOD who created Jesus.
Period.
rabbee: with about 7billion liars in this world, and you think they need more of your only true lying help? and i have some bad news truly for you, The Both of We did not escape being crucified again. just like it says, in TheTorah here in IT again. TheOnly One in TheTorah with two comings, and you deludedly call Him jesus. when you all can't even put two and two together, with Adam just again.

Fine.

So, the exchange of religious vows is mumbo jumbo and is just another hollow human invention.

You say most birds are monogamous but most animals, fish, mammals, insects, reptiles and other life forms are not monogamous.

Thus, monogamy is not a universal law nor is it hardwired into the consciousness of most species.

You god of abraham is certainly not the god of abraham as worshipped by Jews. Why do you ignore them? They keep telling you this!
A naked man on a puny planet who could not even save himself is NOT God.
Allah Is GOD.
You post your own infantile views here and these are quite idiotic.
How can any person claim credibility if he/she worships a naked pagan on a pole beleiving him to be a Jewish man?
You don't worship God ..you worship Satan because Jesus did NOT tell you to worship him ...Jesus did NOT claim divinity.
rabbee: yes and TheG-D of Noach, Avraham, Yeetzak, Yaachov, Moshe, Daveed, Shlomoh, Adam, adam and chaooah, tells us to not worship the other g-ds of noah, abraham, issac, jacob, moses, david and soloman, muhammed, and mr and mrs jesus christ too.

Besides books written by men, can you prove that Jesus is God.
Can you even prove the paul spoke to ghost?
Can you prove God spoke to Jesus?
Can you prove even moses spoke to God!!!
You can't prove anything.
So we have to use a bit of common sense.
It is IMPOSSIBLE for a man to be God.
Therefore, your claim is the nuttiest of claims.
so can you provide VERY SOLID evidence for a very stupid claim..

On the contrary, sex was established as the definition of marriage and the purpose of marriage by God. Its placement in the Genesis account of the creation of Eve pointedly explains the creation of the help mate for Adam that would be one with Adam. The explanation in Genesis 2:21-23 says,

“And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

This explains that the creation of woman from man demands their union. They were created from the same flesh to be the same flesh.

Jesus, the Christ, spoke on the subject of the divine institution, marriage.

When the Pharisees asked our Lord a controversial question on divorce, He not only quoted what He had said in Genesis, but, added commentary on the law and the provision of divorce. First consider His answer. He starts by defining marriage from His Word in Genesis. In Matthew 19:3-6, we read

“The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him,‘Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?’ And he answered and said unto them,

‘Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said,‘For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh’. Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.’ What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.’”

So, first Jesus answers with the Word given in Genesis 2:25. He defines marriage from the Word. As Jesus is God, and is named as “The Word” in John 1:1, His explanation and interpretation of the Word given in the Old Testament is the ABSOLUTE basis for our understanding and interpretation of the Old Testament and law anywhere He explains it or quotes it.(Also, as John chapter 1 goes on to say that He created all things as He was in the beginning, one can fairly argue that the Word given in Genesis 2 was Jesus’ Word as He is the Word who created all things.) Therefore, marriage is defined by God as sexual union of a man and a woman. The statement of “They shall be one flesh” is established as the statement made by God.
Jesus, the Christ, quotes “and they shall be one flesh” as the very statement of God.

Satan is the "one-eyed" naked pagan pole dancer posing as Jesus, seducing worship away from God to him by begging you to eat his raw flesh and drink his fresh blood.
If you truly love Jesus stop worshipping Satan believing him to be Jesus who never claimed divinity.
By worshipping Jesus you help drown him in hot excrement and semen as claimed in Talmud.
Say no to worshipping naked men.
Say yes to GOD.
rabbee: do you really think that your blastphemy against G-D, and your grandmother and grandfather are going to save you? because muslems blastphemy do not believe, G-D is The HOLY SPIRIT.
