Who Is Allah?

There are 250701 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?”

HughBe--- Since your focus was on Jews as is stated in point 1 explain your point 3 and in particular ISRAELITE. Where is your mention of JEWS which is your focus or what you are disputing?
From the fact that I deleted from your original quotation all sentences but the one with only the statement concerning the JEWS.

The fact that I corrected a passing mention is because one should correct when they make mistakes. This appears a foreign idea to you and Shamma.

Eric dear, they would NEVER be called JEWS before the law. The name Jews is a man given name which came hundreds of years after the law. I thought that this was common knowledge especially among those who profess to be Jews.
Thank you for finally agreeing with me. Contrary to your original statement, they were not called the JEWS before the law.

It is not love. It is a stupid reasoning.
It would have been a great suffering and a great sacrifice, if Jesus your God had remained dead.
If you go and die for your friend, you are supposed to remain dead. if you come back again, your friend will think you were never dead and cooked up a story.
So, same goes for Jesus, your Father.
If your friend thinks you 'cooked up a story' then your friend does not know you very well and realy is not your friend.

The Prophets had to be fulfilled and Jesus did this by suffering, dying and rising again.

Allow me to help you again.

1.Eric said---You reverted to the word "Jew" which was not the GIVEN name. Which was MY POINT from the beginning.

Hugh--- Let me explain your words. You are saying that JEWS is NOT the given name. So you are disputing JEWS.

2.Eric--- I actually did a search and the term Israelite is used. Not as frequently, but it is used

HughBe--- You are NOW saying that ISRAELITES is the word used and your expression suggests that you accept that you were WRONG.

You are effectively saying that they were called JEWS but the word used is ISRAELITES. These are the meanings of your words.

The meaning is supported by the fact that JEWS is being disputed and yet you made no mention of the word instead you seem to support my point.

Dear deluded demented pagan mangod worshipper!
ONLY "free will" that BJ gave was to for Roman soldiers and some disgruntled Jews to "choose" when/where/how to beat the Cr&p out of him, nail him and leave him to "die".
GOD gives free CHOICE to creation.
The WILL ALWAYS rests with GOD.
GOD is NOT a circumcised man.
BJ has NO authority whatsoever to play "god".
Jesus PBUH NEVER tried to play God because he was a pious human being who submitted to the WILL of GOD.
Jesus is God and was in glory with the Father from before the world began. Before Abraham He was. St Thomas on seeing the rising Lord exclaimed: "My Lord and my God!!!"

And what of the Prophets that said the Messiah would bring an end to war and sickness; and those that said that the Messiah would be the whole world to worship the monotheistic G-d of Abraham; etc.? Did they have to be fulfilled?

Taken from Eric's post 168109

Eric in prior post---Actually they weren't. They were Hebrews at this time. Even though they were technically and more properly Israelites, I don't think the term was used.

In 168109 Eric said--I actually did a search and the term Israelite is used. Not as frequently, but it is used

HughBe--- I am once again saying that Eric is effectively saying that they were called JEWS but the word used is ISRAELITES

HughBe---It is my hope that YOU understood the meaning of Pharaoh's words i.e. "who let the JEWS out".

Do YOU understand that the people were called JEWS/Israelites?

Do you understand that they were Jews before the giving of the law?

Help, is it the one with JEWS or the one with JEWS/Israelites? Note the order of the sentences are as they appear in the original post.

Jesus the Messiah is not dead and is working on fulfilling these prophecies through His Mystical Body, the Catholic Church.

Catholic means universal, that is God established His Church for the whole world. The Catholic Church worships the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
