Who Is Allah?

“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?”

I see the Indian style in Jesus' response, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." Right?
Indian style?

You mean the impersonal nondual style.

The nondual experiences are related to universal states of consciousness-energy and as such there's nothing like Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Christian or Buddhist states of experience.

The above remark attributed to Jesus is a direct reference to the cosmic wideness experienced by him via the Illumined Mind Plane.

Creatures with a limited consciousness are confined to specific dwelling places like holes, nests or apartments but those rare ones in whom the higher consciousness is awake find their consciousness spread out over space in the cosmic wideness and so where can such a man with a universal state of consciousness lay his head? His consciousness is everywhere and so confining him to a tiny dwelling place is futile.

Thus, "....the Son of Man has no place to lay his head," is a direct reference to the universal state of consciousness that's spread out over the cosmic wideness attained to by Jesus.

BMZ (SINGAPORE):

I have to say something to you in dead earnest -

When I was 3 or 4, I got an erection as my nanny massaged me with oil and I made it a point to caress my erect dick in her presence and wanted her to hold it and massage it with the oil that she was rubbing over my body. Luckily, I was clothed in tiny shorts at that time. She was aware of my arousal and laughed away.

What do you have to say about this sexual awakening that I had at age 3 or 4?

You are asking the wrong guy here. That inquiry should rightfully be directed to the Jamaican who specializes in that topic.

HUGH's an expert on man-man sex not that homosexuality is unnatural.

Homosexuality is just one of the many modes of sexual orientation of the genes resposible for sexual preference.

I still remember in vivid detail that first sexual arousal when I was 3 or 4.

Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty.

John 8:24. "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am he, you will die in your sin".
It is you, who believes in Satan. Any one can see your post and declare it Satanic.

That, Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty, is a huge pile of bull shit and horse shit.

Even Satan never said anything so ridiculous and absurd!

How long Christianity, her Church built on mud and presbyters like you will fool the world?

John 8:24 is rubbish. Did they ask him if he were God? Of course not!

And then was asked: "Who are you?”

Jesus lied and replied:“Just what I have been telling you from the beginning,” No where in your gospels did Jesus tell them in the beginning that he was claiming to be the Messiah.

"I am he" DOES NOT MEAN "I am God". The "he" in "I am he" refers to messiah. Go back and read what he told the girl at the well, who told him that she was waiting for the messiah. He said to her, the same thing, "I am he".

Why could he not openly declare "I am the Messiah, you have been waiting for!"? What was he scared of? Multiple deaths?

Why do I have to explain your own post-Jesus bullshit to you?

That is correct. That must have come from an honest Christian.

The History Department of the Church wrote her own History as directed by the fathers. The Romans were only after the Jews. They would have surely welcomed the rebels and renegades of Judaism.

A poster had asked similar question on another forum. He had experienced the same, when he was 3. He screwed up his nanny.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it. It would have been great if you had screwed her up.

12 COMMANDMENTS (PERHAPS MADE OF 114 VERSES?)

Ten Commandments were for the People of Moses meaning Israelites, who have effctively ended up as Jews.

Ten Commandments were not meant for Gentile Christians who worship a Jewish man through ignorance.

Here are TWO more commandments for them:

11. Continue to ignore the above 10!
12. Seek knowledge and guidance from God who is wothy of worship by all creation.

Thank you...

IN RETURN for "TAKING" the JEWSIH BOOKS you could have SAID a SIMPLE “THANK YOU” INSTEAD of WORSHIPPING a JEWISH MAN while KILLING the JEWS accusing them of the MURDER of THEIR own MAN!

lol....
Did Jesus tell them he was God?
Why did he not tell the whole world because he should have known that the disciples would have been "bumped" off by paul's gang withoin a few months!!!
What a clueless god!!

Come on paul...Jesus NEVER claimed divinity.

He did tell the world; how do you think we know He is God; the second person of the Most Holy Trinity. Unlike islam, trapped in a 6th century book, dictated, supposedly, by an uneducated war lord, Christians have Emanuel, God with us, to teach us and call to mind all that Jesus had taught His disciples.

I think it is a stretch to call Hughbe anything but an expert on preoccupation and repression. He is so obviously gay, but can not come to terms with it because of his literalist religion.

"ISLAM is a peaceful Religion" or so say the world leaders.

I don't know enough about ISLAM to say that, but I can tell you that there can be no peace between Christians and Muslims.

The Christian GOD will not tolerate anyone who rejects Him. I notice the Muslims don't tolerate anyone who rejects Islam either.

This can only mean WAR!!!, we cannot live together peacefully. We cannot avoid WAR!!!, the only way Muslims can avoid a WAR with Christians is to convert.

So the ball is in the Muslim court, you only have 2 choices - Convert to Christianity or die.

Look how vastly superior Christians are to Muslims, we are destroying your countries and killing and poisoning millions of Muslims with depleted Uranium missiles.

Iraq and Afghanistan are full of Leukaemia and Cancer from the effects of Depleted Uranium. The future is very bad for all Muslim countries, the Coalition of the Israeli, Europeans, Americans and South Pacific countries will destroy Islam.

Where is your ALLAH to save you, it looks like He is hiding from the mighty Coalition of the willing as well LOL.
