“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?”

Really glad to see you, NQ and thanks for your thoughts.

Jesus always kept God Almighty high above himself and considered himself one, who was sent by God.

He had never said, "I am God in flesh or God". The ignorant fools, who wanted to appease and please the Roman pagans, caved in to the liars, who promoted the absurd Trinity.

John 17:3 destroys the lie that Jesus was God.

"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."

He said himself acknowledging: "that they know you, the only true God".

In other words, it is not me.

I don't know how can the trinitarians accept that Jesus was God.

First of all, it is important to note that “Allah” is the same word that Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews use for God. If you pick up an Arabic Bible, you will see the word “Allah” being used where “God” is used in English. This is because “Allah” is a word in the Arabic language equivalent to the English word “God” with a capital “G”. Additionally, the word “Allah” cannot be made plural, a fact which goes hand-in-hand with the Islamic concept of God.
To say that Muslims worship a different “God” because they say “Allah” is just as illogical as saying that French people worship another God because they use the word “Dieu”, that Spanish-speaking people worship a different God because they say “Dios” or that the Hebrews worshipped a different God because they sometimes call Him “Yahweh.” Certainly, reasoning like this is quite ridiculous! It should also be mentioned, that claiming that any one language uses the only the correct word for God is tantamount to denying the universality of God’s message to mankind, which was to all nations, tribes and people through various prophets who spoke different languages.
You think all normal people say God?
YOU THINK ALL CHRISTIAN SAY GOD?
How many of you think Christian Say God?
You know better bcoz the majority of Christian do not speak English and its for sure NO PROPHETS NEVER USE THAT WORD AND JESUS HIMSELF NEVER USED THAT WORD.
ITS AN ENGLISH WORD. THERE WAS NO ENGLISH LANGUAGE UNTIL THE NORMAN INVADED THE SAXON IN THE YEAR 1066 AD. A thousand years after the MESSIAH JESUS (PBUH). But the word Allah was Here because the word Allah is part of the Semitic Language.

But, the Hebrews borrowed their deity, El, from the older Baal-Molech cultures of the region.
El worship existed since the days of Ugarit or earlier (that was later taken up by Abraham) is a form of Baal-Molech (Moloch) worship based on violence, murder, war, bigotry and other negatives.
So, your god is El, who, like Allah, is an asura (adverse being).
LOL.
I am well aware of what you are saying.
That is why the God in the Bible makes sense to me.
The God in the Bible is the only God that makes any rational sense.
The Jews got them self mixed in with the demon gods and demon rituals.
The God of the Bible tries to set the Jews straight but the Jews them selves kept going back to their demon gods and rituals.
This link is a history of the Jews.
It has hours of study if you care to study all of it.
It goes back to the Hindu's and the Jews.

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."

Read this part from John 14:

14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Jesus the Way to the Father

5 Thomas said to him,“Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus answered,“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Jesus said, "You know the way to the place where I am going." Now watch and see what Thomas, your twin, said. Thomas said, " “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus was simply telling them that he was going to die. That was the only way to the Father.

And the fools could not understand anything. And note Jesus did not show and tell them any way.

Of course, trinitarians will say it is a mystery. Yet even when Jesus said he was one with the Father, that is not difficult for a person to understand, IF they have the right attitude. To say it means that he IS God is completely without understanding, in my opinion.:-) Peace to you as well, bmz. It is like a representative of an administration to say he IS the administration.

Here Jesus sounds like George Bush.

Matthew 12:30-32 is clearly a forgery and one can notice that it does not fit in. It is a post 450 AD forgery. The following is totally and hopelessly out of place.

30 “This is war, and there is no neutral ground. If you’re not on my side, you’re the enemy; if you’re not helping, you’re making things worse.

31-32 “There’s nothing done or said that can’t be forgiven. But if you deliberately persist in your slanders against God’s Spirit, you are repudiating the very One who forgives. If you reject the Son of Man out of some misunderstanding, the Holy Spirit can forgive you, but when you reject the Holy Spirit, you’re sawing off the branch on which you’re sitting, severing by your own perversity all connection with the One who forgives."

Look at the question in verse 22.

And note that Jesus did not provide any answer at all. Verse 23 shows an off-topic answer.

So, we call them meaningless verses fitted in by scribes and editors.

Jesus gave you the answer in verse 23. and you ignored his teaching.

Jesus revealed Himself to the word and they did not love him, for they did not accept his teaching.

Only those that accept Jesus teaching love Jesus.
And only those that accept Jesus as he reveals himself to us will inter in the Kingdom of God.

Those that don't accept Jesus will perish.

That is what Jesus is talking about.
It amounts to, if only one person accepts Jesus and the rest of the world rejects Jesus, all the rest of the world will perish.

Salaams, NQ
It is sad to me that it is one of the most pervasive teachings of those who say they believe in Jesus re: the Bible. I have read some of the writings of the church "fathers," yet they went far beyond what the scriptures say about Jesus and who he is concerning God. Because never did Jesus intimate that he was God. In fact, everything he said alluded to the fact that he was NOT God, but was God's messenger. It is also a sad thing that scholars themselves at at variance, take that to mean disagreement, among themselves as to what the Greek really means. But there is no doubt in my mind that Jesus is not God, never said he was God, and most particular, never spoke of a trinity within him.:-) Peace again.

One more thing regarding teachings of theologians and religionists: Here is what Jesus said, yet who would say they follow this (a rhetorical question):

Luke 6:46 - And why call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Again, sadness fills my mind and heart, because it is so obvious that many simply do not understand this statement at all.

May you have peace, bmz.
