Who Is Allah?

There are 256289 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?”

It does not matter whether or not Jesus spoke Greek, what matters is that the text was written in Greek and Jesus' words/meaning were translated into Greek.
It can not be said whether or not Jesus knew Greek. What was He doing for the first 30 years? Learning Greek?
I am now thinking think Jesus had a flare for languages. He spoke Hebrew and Aramaic.

In his early teens, he learned Hindi/Sanskrit on his trip to India. The reason I say this is because he sounds more like Indian sages.

On the way back, he learned Arabic and Persian.

Earlier, when he was a child, he learned Egyptian, whatever that was. In his early twenties Jesus went up North and learned Latin and Greek.

So, when he spoke, he used all the languages and that is why he became incoherent. That led to the failure of his mission.

Another stupid lie.

There were no written teachings of Jesus. He did not know how to write. All his teachings were oral. Jesus never wrote down a word.

Each time you post you prove the religion of Muslims is a fraud.

We all are sinners, we all make mistake, But in the religion of the Muslims every Muslim is a perfect being.
No non-Muslims can point a crime to a Muslim.

No.

It was the Father, who was Jesus' alter ego. Jesus, who was schizophrenic, thought that he was the Father.

Muhammad never said anything silly and absurd like this:

"You have seen me, so you have seen the Father."

You obviously have never seen real money or how all this can be done through lawyers and bankers. That's why you didn't understand anything about escrows or using reputable lawyers to DX their confirmation of clients' financial standing!
I said you set the bet stupidly because:

1) You are begging other posters to pop in, but fail to realize that many of them do not care whether you are rich or struggling to arrive to the end of month.

2) What sense does it make the 3 out of 5? It can be 1 or 2 or 4 or 5 out of 5, or 3 out of 3. You have the mindset of elementary school kid.

3) Who is so idiot to give personal infos online to a stranger?

4) You have been exposed as a fraud, you are none of what you said to be and it was showen and recorded in this thread.

5) Since you are a liar the only way you can get me in is only when you provide with proof you have that amount of money. Only by showing them I'll be more than glad to give whatever amount you want and go on with the bet, but I let handle by lawyers not by your stupid set, abecedarian.

It is far worse to want to kill ones self as mohammad wanted to do. mohammad did not have the Spirit of God in him to discern the spirits. It was a women who told him the demon troubling him was Gabriel.

Exchanges with Joel are usually full of cynicisms, innuendos, double entendres plus humour you brainless moron!!
Joel is posting from India where the majority live on a shoestring.
I feel sorry for them and occasionally remind Joel to spend his money on charity instead of wasting it on Taj.
That's why sometimes tell him I am poor living in a cardboard box or that I have never seen a £50 note!
You lack insight..so won't understand English humour!
In your case I shall be arrogant...I have issued you a challenge.
Get your lawyers to write to BMZ and let's take it from there.
I don't need your money but it will be fun.
Ok..let's make it more interesting...
The winner will give £30,000 each to the five (not three!) people mentioned in my previous post as a thank you on top of the expenses paid to the 3 people for their 3day stay in london.
We can make it even more interesting...let's get down ALL FIVE.
Go for it punk....
Alexia you are not well off and I don't think Joel thinks you are. So you don't fool anyone with your lies and BS.

Jesus read from the scroll in the synagogue; so if He could read He could write.

We were discussing whether the expected Messiah of each religion was the same person.
The problem with this view is that the various scriptures are at loggerheads with each other in key points and so I wonder how this so-called messiah would reconcile all the conflicting views, rituals, belief systems and philosophies.

Besides, each scripture gives different details and expects different results from this so-called future messiah.

One scripture places the birth of the messiah in Jerusalem, another in India, another in Iran and so on.

Most importantly, how would this messiah solve the numerous problems facing the earth nature and humankind? Would he abolsih the teachings of the past prophets in view of the numerous flaws in their expositions? What degree of consciousness and energy would he wield to regenerate the terrestrial nature? What would be the outcome? Will all this be done in a few years? What about the evolutionary nature of the earth consciousness?

Why can't G-d speak to more than one faith?
A petty supraphysical being speaks, gets angry, judges, punishes, kills, heals, loves and the like, while the absolute (that is a unified field or a system of the totality) is something much more than this anthropopathic entity called G-d.

The dualistic view is based on the observer and the observed or the on the subject and the object and so on, while the nondualistic view takes a singular stand and recognizes no extra-cosmic or extra-personal G-d except the Self that is a direct projection of the Absolute in manifestation.

That's why s/he would be the Messiah. S/he would overcome all of these minor issues by fulfilling the major prophecies.

That's why Jesus isn't the Messiah. Jesus didn't objectively fulfill the major prophecies. The Christians had to invent a deus ex machina--the second coming--because Jesus didn't fulfill the major prophecies.

Why can't there be one prophet recognized by all religions? If all recognize him/her, why won't that event cause peace?
No, peace is a graduated effect of the higher consciousness-energy in manifestation and each graduated effect of peace has diferent results.

So, what is peace? Is it a power or an effect of something else? Explain. This is a critical question on the definition of peace. Please answer it before we proceed to the higher aspects of the age of truth.

Besides, what degree of consciousness and power would the so-called messiah wield? What problems would he solve?

Let us see if we can agree on one definition of the word "prophet".

So, how would you define a "prophet"?

Call G-d what you will. Give G-d whatever attributes you want because each culture can't get it's arms around a Deity that isn't "man-like". Still, why can't this "Absolute" speak to all in ways that each can understand and accept? After all, if the Deity is the "Absolute", that Deity can do all. The Deity can break thru the barriers knowing what's necessary.

bmz said Jesus could not write, he didn't say he couldn’t write in a particular language. If the scroll was in Hebrew then we can say Jesus could write in at least Hebrew. There is also a record of Jesus writing in the sand when they wanted to stone the woman caught in adulatory.
