Who Is Allah?

There are 256489 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?”

what the hell does it mean you clown?
before abraham was born, i am (a clown)?
Before I was born Abraham was (born)....makes a tiny bit more sense.
Any human being can make that claim....the atoms/subatomic particles that make us have been there before abraham was born as a human being.
Good evening, Alex! It is nice to see you again. Many things religionists (theologians) say one must stand back and say "whaaa??" Yes - to distort a phrase ("I AM"??) and then say that means what it does not, does not make much sense (to me). Jesus never said he was the "Great I AM."

Good evening, bmz! Just stopping by to say hi. Jesus never did say he was God. Because he knew he was not God. He prayed TO God, not himself. He did not pray to himself in another form.
John 14:28 - Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for MY FATHER IS GREATER THAN I.
Explain your post.
Why did Jesus say: Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father:
Why was it important for Jesus to leave and ho to the Father?
The key in that verse is "I go away, and come again unto you"
What is Jesus saying in that verses?
You need to explain what you refute?

It is evident you are just as ignorant as Alex.
You make statements you cannot back up with rational reasoning.
Is Jesus the second person of the Holy Trinity?
If Not, explain who Jesus is?

Maybe we could take a day away from our current course of accentuating our differences, and try posting how we believe the same. The above is an example. Confession of sin. We don't have to talk about the difference in methodology. But it's nice to understand that confession of sin is important to all of us.
Chag sameach!

Jesus said He is God and the Jews wanted to stone Him for it; it is documented.
You are lying again.
READ the rest of the verses...
If BJ went around talking rubbish even the Hindus would have stoned him!
"before abraham was i am"!!!
If the Jews heard him say such rubbish about their Father Abraham they would kick BJ's ass.

Was it broken english or broken greek (greece for shamma!) or
was it a broken nose he was asking for!

If you pick your way through these verses written long after Jesus so they could promote BJ the clown as "god", you can still see how truth is being suppressed...
John 10:

31 Then the JEWS took up stones again to stone him.
32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from from god; for which of those works do ye stone me?
33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself (like) god.

34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, YE ARE GODS?

After getting rid of "upper cases" it is quite obvious Jesus was suggesting he was a "son" of JEWS who were "godly men"

No big deal there.
End of...

All the books of the New Testament were edited and forged during the period 325-561 AD.
Absurd and meaningless verses were added and such verses came from the early Church fathers, who wanted to show Jesus as God.
So true brother!
They further confused it with broken greek latin english and gibberish!

Alex your god Allah is not the God of the Bible.
Muslims have no connections to the God of the Bible.
Ishmael strayed from worshiping the God of Abraham and Moses.
In this article we would like to point out that the Holy Bible contradicts the Muslim assertion that the Ishmaelites were worshiping the true God Yahweh. We read in the 83rd chapter of the Psalms that the Ishmaelites did not worship Yahweh God:
"O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those WHO HATE YOU have raised their heads. They lay crafty plans against your people; they consult together against your treasured ones. They say,‘Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!’ For they conspire with one accord; AGAINST YOU they make a covenant - the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites, Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Asshur also has joined them; they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Selah Do to them as you did to Midian, as to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, who were destroyed at En-dor, who became dung for the ground. Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, who said,‘Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God.’ O my God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind. As fire consumes the forest, as the flame sets the mountains ablaze, so may you pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your hurricane! Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek your name, O LORD. Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever; let them perish in disgrace, that they may know that you alone, whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83:1-18
The Psalm is part of collection of Psalms which are attributed to Asaph. Asaph lived about 1000 BC, and was a leader of David’s Levitical choirs, and had descendants from his line who continued as singers for many centuries. Some think that Psalm 83 was composed in 1040 BC., others at 800 BC., others claim it dates from 600 BC., and still others that date it from 400 BC.
The implication this Psalm has on the Muslim claims is quite devastating. According to this Psalm the Ishmaelites, at least from the period between 1000-400 BC., were part of the nations who hated both the true God and his covenant people. The Psalmist asks God to bring utter destruction upon these nations so that they may come to the realization that Yahweh alone is the Most High God over the earth. This means that if the Muslim claims regarding the Meccan Arabs being descendents of Ishmael are correct, then the Allah of pre-Islamic Mecca was a false god. He couldn’t have been the same God worshiped by Jews and Christians.
In fact, there is evidence which points to Baal being the high god worshiped by the Meccans!
Muslims are just big bullies that force their words as truth without the truth to back up their words.
You need to do some research Alex on your religion of Muhammad's religion.
Muslims are too lazy to research their religion.
Muhammad was not a prophet of the God of the Bible.
Salaamz Shamma & Pardon my intrusion but I believe you to be in error. Inspite of all your scriptural ranting and postuering.Inspite of all the nefarious and humorous activities of clueless humanbeings thru history. It is God who remains the same! you may refer to Him as Adonai,or ALLAH,or the Almighty,or Hashem,or Jehoveh,or any of the miriad of names He has been given by men that they may attempt to understand and describe what is beyond their finite understanding.LOL! Therefore your statement that ALLAH is not god,is somewhat shortsighted and incorrect. May you be Guided to more factual proofs concerning the realistic identity of The Divine And Most Eternal Creator. Cheerz

2) "Be ye as perfect as thy heavenly father."

3) "The kingdom of heaven is within you."

So?
