Who Is Allah?

There are 254833 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?”

Muslims are afraid to accept God as he really reveals Himself for it would destroy Muhammad as a prophet.
And that is being dishonest by keeping God in a lesser form than God is.
We can't accept your absurd Triune God aka Trinity.

God never revealed himself as a man or a woman or a lamb or a donkey. So, please cut the nonsense that God revealed himself as Jesus.

You have already made yourself a lesser God. Either Jesus was dishonest or the Church was. Your choice!

It is shameful and disgraceful to equate Jesus, a failed man, with God.

Trinity is the biggest Horse Shit since 460 AD.

Acts 9
English Standard Version (ESV)
9 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3 Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. 4 And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him,“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?”
5 And he said,“Who are you, Lord?” And he said,“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 6 But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do.”
7 The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one. 8 Saul rose from the ground, and although his eyes were opened, he saw nothing. So they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. 9 And for three days he was without sight, and neither ate nor drank.
10 Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision,“Ananias.” And he said,“Here I am, Lord.” 11 And the Lord said to him,“Rise and go to the street called Straight, and at the house of Judas look for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying, 12 and he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight.”
15 But the Lord said to him,“Go, for he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel.
16 For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name.”
17 So Ananias departed and entered the house. And laying his hands on him he said,“Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
18 And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized; 19 and taking food, he was strengthened.
Read 15 and 16
Jesus showed Paul all he has to know about Jesus to preach in the name of Jesus.
The meaning is "I will show him" is that all that Jesus taught him to preach will cause Paul to suffer death for preaching what Jesus taught him to preach.
Paul was personally blessed with wisdom and understanding given to him by Jesus.
So Paul didn't need to be taught by the other Apostles as what to preach about Jesus.
Fiction! How can you believe cock and bull story, when Jesus did not even speak a word about Paul to his disciples and never met Paul at all.

Do you even know what dimension is?

God can be in any dimension but it has to God, not a man or an animal. No one has seen God. Period!

Sorry BMZ, but you are going to gave to accept reality.
You can no longer go on pretending that Muhammad was a prophet when the scriptures in the Quran show that Muhammad was a false prophet.

God is beyond of our comprehension, but that does not mean we should ignore Gods way of revealing himself to us in the scriptures.

Jesus spelled it all out in the Scriptures of who he is, and how we are to accept Him as our Lord and Savior.

Muhammad took the task of bringing the pagan Arabs into believing God is one, but the God Muhammad sought to bring the Arabs to worship as one God was the god of Muhammad's childhood, of which was the Pagan moon god called Allah.

The scriptures in the Quran reveal that Muhammad gathered Scripture from other religions and claimed them as his own revelations as coming from his moon god Allah.

The evidence of this is in the Quran and Hadiths written about Muhammad by credible Muslim writings.

Muhammad was considered an honest person on the grounds of his belief in the god and idols that the pagan Arabs also believed in.

So his revelations although false were given creditability by his followers.

The self pride of the Muslims won't allow them to come to the truth.

You are a defeated man pleading for your ignorance to be accepted as truth among those that have the truth.

Your rhetoric is that of the false prophet Muhammad.
That is all you have in defense of your lies.

The Holy Trinity of God does not have to be defended by Christians, for the Trinity is God in all His wonder, Glory and Splendor.

This filthy blasphemy that God is triune or a trinity, came from confused and ignorant fools, who were uneducated men. And finally Constantine decided what the Christian God would be.

You made another silly and stupid statement: " Jesus spelled it all out in the Scriptures of who he is, and how we are to accept Him as our Lord and Savior."

That is another bull shit!

Read this from John: "Who are you?" they asked. "Just what I have been claiming all along," Jesus replied."

And you can exhaust yourself but you will not be able to find him telling them who he was.

If Jesus had explained the scriptures to his disciples before he vanished, it would not have taken the Church to take 500-600 years to come up with her absurd and preposterous doctrines and trinity.

Trinity is nothing but a junk stuff. You have no proof that trinity exists.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-67

Chapter 143 : Story of Zacchaeous

So one Sabbath morning, Jesus came to Nazareth. When the citizens recognized Jesus, everyone desired to see him. A publican named Zacchaeus, who was of small stature, not being able to see Jesus because of the great multitude, climbed to the top of a sycamore, and there waited for Jesus to pass that place when he went to the synagogue. Jesus then, having come to that place, lifted up his eyes and said: "Come down, Zacchaeus, for today I will abide in your house." The man came down and received him with gladness, making a splendid feast.

The Pharisees murmured, saying to Jesus' disciples: "Why [has] your master gone in to eat with publicans and sinners?" Jesus answered: "Why does the physician [enter] into a house? Tell me, and I will tell you why I am come in here." They answered: "To heal the sick." "You say the truth," said Jesus, "for [those who are] whole have no need of medicine, only the sick.

Chapter 144 For whom the prophets are sent?

As God lives, in whose presence my soul stands, God sends his prophets and servants into the world in order that sinners may repent; and he sends [them] not for the sake of the righteous, because they had no need of repentance, even as he that is clean has no need of the bath.

But truly I say to you, if you were true Pharisees you would be glad that I should have gone in to sinners for their salvation. Tell me, do you know your origin and how the world began to receive
Pharisees? I will tell you, seeing that you do not know it, so hearken to my words.…

Whereupon the Canaanites, beholding those of our people that were separated from the world to serve God, when they saw such an one, said in derision 'Pharisee!' that is,'He seeks God'; as much as to say:'O madman, you have no statues of idols and adore the wind; look to your fate and come and serve our gods.

' Truly I say to you," said Jesus, "all the saints and prophets of God have been Pharisees not in name, as you are, but in very deed. For in all their acts they sought God their creator, and for love of God they forsook cities and their own goods, selling [their goods] and giving to the poor for love of God."
