Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Brussels Journal

“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?”

From the desk of Soeren Kern on Fri, 2007-08-24 11:56 Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society. via The Brussels Journal

Greek was the language of scholars, administrators, and the upper classes
no Jew would discuss his religion using Greek,
the Talmud has the mishnah part in Hebrew, the gemara part in Aramaic

inscribing epitaphs on tombstones was NOT a Jewish custom
only the elite hellenized Jews practised it, hence the majority of Greek inscriptions found

So, if the word is final, you don't believe in the coming of the Messiah.[Second coming for those of the Christian faith.]

What he said! And, what of the ossuary of James with Aramaic inscription?

That is not the Tanakh. That is the mutilation and forgery known as the Old Testament.

What can be said from your post is that you are not a Christian. You need to put on the new man in Christ to properly understand Sacred Scripture. You are going about in the futility of your own thinking.
You are also off-topic like a true Christian.

I wrote this, so please address the points that I have brought up.

"The true Scripture would have said, "Do not give to Caesar what does not belong to him and do not throw your pearls to Caesar and stand up for your rights!"

I do not believe that Jesus made such a stupid statement.

If he did, then he was being diplomatic!

It is a forgery and was added in to please HM Constantine and appease the Romans."

A man like Jesus, who stood up to Pilate and the San Hedrin, cannot be expected to make that silly statement like a wimp!

The verse shows Jesus as a hypocrite, who either tried to gain favour from the Romans or bent backwards to appease them. I don't like that silly and absurd verse. In other words, he submitted to the Roman occupation.

<quoted text>LMAO!
Muhammad was no prophet of God.
Muslims are the wild beast of the world.
You are a Muhammadan MUQ.
Muslims preaching that Muhammad was a man of God is shameful.
St. Paul was chosen by Jesus to be an Apostle of God.
Paul was instructed and taught by the Holy Spirit of Jesus to preach the risen Jesus the Son of God.
That is the good news of the Gospels of Jesus.
There is not even a word from Jesus on Paul. He did not even mention the Satan's minion to his disciples.

Paul was the Apostle of Satan.

When Jesus was handed over to Satan for getting tested and certified fit, Satan checked and found out that Jesus was not the son of God but Satan always had wanted to give God a son.

And Satan did achieve that finally through his minion Paul, who saw Satan masquerading as Jesus.

The so-called Holy Spirit taught nothing! In fact, like an evil and a lying spirit, it misinformed many.

Example: Mathew 28:19 and Acts 2:38

It shows you are not a born again Christian and so can not understand God, Jesus. The NT is perfect and correct as it is written and has no need of your commentary.

What do you know?
You don't even believe in God.
You believe in Muhammad.

You believe that rape, robbery, and Murder is the character of God.
For you accept those evil deeds of rape, robbery, and murder committed by Muhammad as righteousness unto God.

But you admitted you dont follow the Greek. Nor do you read the Syriac.

What you are left is an English translation - flawed and mangled.

If you actually followed the Greek I could see a tiny spot of merit on your argument.

You bypassed his assertion, which is actually based on a standard.

We have a standard - the Hebrew. We also have a Greek version. And then we have your version. When you compare your version with the Greek and the Hebrew we see the flaws.

If you bring a group of the Church fathers for a lie-detection test and they are brought near the machine, it will immediately print out "No test required for these liars!"
rabbee: lie detectors are only usefull, when the person knows they are lying. it does not work on those, who are unaware they have been truly lied to. as long as a person, believes they are telling the truth. they will pass a lie detector. a lie detector, cannot tell if it is the real truth, or a common lie that is accepted as the truth. and your derogatory statement, is totally out of order. and your acting like, you have already lost an argument.

Allah Ta'ala is One. There is no one equal to Allah Ta'ala, either in being, qualities, actions, commands or names. Allah Ta'ala is "Waajibul Wujood", in other words, His Existence is compulsory. His destruction is impossible. Allah Ta'ala always was and always will be.
Allah Ta'ala is neither anyone's father, not is He anyone's son. Allah Ta'ala does not have a wife. Anyone who shows Allah Ta'ala to have a father or for Him to be anyone's son or to prove that Allah Ta'ala has a wife is a Kaafir (non-believer). If anyone thinks or imagines this to be possible, then that person he is misled and irreligious.
Allah Ta'ala is present and in existence. The term used to define this is "Hai". Everyone?s life and existence is in the control of Allah Ta'ala. He gives life and causes death to whomever He pleases.
It is also not necessary that everything in the power of Allah Ta'ala should come into existence even though it is possible for it to come into existence. An example of this is that if Allah Ta'ala wills, He may create a mountain made from solid gold, but there is no such mountain. However, if Allah Ta'ala wishes, then it will exist even though it does not exist at present.
Islam, with its clear and direct expression of truth, has great appeal to anyone seeking knowledge. It has a solution for all problems that arise during the course of one's life. It is the most recommended guide towards a better and accomplished life.

inscribing epitaphs on tombstones/ossuaries was NOT a Jewish custom
it was adopted from the custom of the Greeks and Romans

in Jesus' days, only priveleged Jews, not the common Jews, get to have their own epitaphs engraved

Is there ANY biological connection?
Exactly how is Jesus the son of god??
Thanks...please keep answer very precise...to the point!

Only from your heathen/pagan point of view. The OT is translated in accordance with how the Jews understood the text in Hebrew to mean.
