Who Is Allah?

There are 253556 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?”

Hi. Shamma and others will probably tell you they believe in one God. I would like to make this clear. The Bible says that there is one God above all. It is helpful to define what the word 'god' means. It means mighty or powerful one, and the Hebrew word,'el,' translated as god, is said to possibly come from a Canaanite word for god. The etymology of the word 'el' is not clearly known. The God of Israel is a living God, and made Himself clear to the nation. Elohim, in essence the plural for god, signifies the majesty and absolute power of God above all, but does not mean multiple gods in one, according to the God of Israel, or true God.

The Bible describes others as gods, or el, occasionally elohim. Jesus, for instance, is said to be a mighty god in the sense of having been given power and responsibility. Others, such as angels and human judges, are also described as gods in the Bible.(powerful ones, el, or elohim) The devil is also figured as a god, the god of this world. So the word god can be used in various contexts, although to true Christians there is only one true God and God is not a trinity.

Jesus prayed to God in heaven. Jesus was not "God on earth" as if he were part of a trinity and 100% man and god at the same time. Adam, the first man, came from the earth. Jesus came from heaven. He described it this way, at John 8:23: He said to them,“You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world."

Jesus, although he came from heaven, was a man and not God on earth.

Christian Arabs in the Middle East also refer to god as Allah, Allah is just the Arabic word for god, Allah isn't a word just used by Muslims Allah is Arabic for God
rabbee: the g-d/s of the quran, and TheG-D of TheTorah. obviously are not, the same g-ds. G-D never gave, the quran to muhammed, or any one else. G-D only gave, TheTorah to Moshe. and TheTorah is TheOnly Accounting, ever transcribed by G-D.

TheG-D of TheTorah, is not the g-d/s of other accountings. G-D is only giving The Torah Accounting again, that we are all here in again. you all and your grandmother chaooah, all failed the last two Torot times. so obviously we, are all doing it again. and you have all, screwed this up thrice again.

the only reason there is still, hell and death on earth today. is because you all screwed up again, for not being true to G-D here in TheTorah Accounting just again. you have all, already passed up another chance for GanEden. so guess, what now?

one of the obvious signs, of not being true to G-D. is the lack of peace on earth, and good will to all men. none of your organized religions, are a peace within themselves, more or less with each other.

i am going to have to do this again, with or without all you and your specific grandmother as chaooah. for without your, specific grandmother of all living. none of you shall ever exist ever again here in TheTorah Happening or anywhere else. with TheWhole Torah beginning, day one again with TheBook of Noach.

as all of your grandchildren, are going to have to all drown again. because of all your flood, of not here in TheTorah lies.

and please do not tell me, that TheG-D of Only TheTorah. does not have the power and authority, to redo this whole story all over again.
since G-D has already given this same story, for more than three million times already. and THEY are not about to change it, to suit you mo with the subtle beasts of the fields.

HughBe---"Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven." (Genesis 19:24)
So one YHWH was in heaven and the other was not.
"I(God) have overthrown some among you as when GOD(another God) overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah" (Amos 4:11)
One God speaking and He makes reference to ANOTHER God who overthrew Sodom.
Note, I was NOT seeking to prove any trinity.
In essence, TWO Gods.

HughBe--- There are many reasons but here are a few.

1. They have the FREEDOM and I repeat FREEDOM to believe whatever they want to believe and this is unlike another religion where WE all are FORCED or brainwashed to believe the same things.

2. For the same reason why some don't understand that Jesus is the Messiah and that there shall NOT be any messiah riding on an ass in this lifetime or any to come.

This is HISTORY."Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass."

3. It is NATURAL for people to have different views. In your own family do you all believe the same things?

No, there are many competing beings each calling itself God.

Leaving aside all these petty beings of the lower planes of existence, we may conclude that there exists only one reality of which everything is a graduated manifestation.

This makes better sense and does away with crude ideas of a God and of creation from nothing.

Why are you so contrary to others against their silly belief of creation from nothing, when yourself believe in the creation from nothing of thousands Adam and Eve. At the top of that you believe that the ancestors of modern day Indians came out of North Pole out of nothing. LOL

As they believe their god materialized matter out of nothing, you believe that the unit of two forces materialized matter out of nothing.

Stop believing in such absurdity and being a hypocrite.

What I post is what Gods Holy bible is all about.
From Genesis to Revelations the Bible is about Gods Son Jesus Christ.
There is no other way to enter into Gods Kingdom except thru Jesus Christ.
No matter if you believe in Jesus Christ or not, at the last judgment you will face Jesus Christ as your judge.
No! That is not true.

Jesus cannot judge. Who is he to judge? The LORD will judge. Keep in mind that Jesus is not the LORD.

Psalm 7:8 "The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to my integrity that is in me.

1Sam. 2:9 "He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. "It is not by strength that one prevails; 10those who oppose the LORD will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth."

The muztard bmz still can't get the obvious through his head.
The "trinity" describes three faces of the one God.
NOT three Gods you lying gibbering bullshitting muztard beast.
One God, with one nature.
A nature very different from the nature of the raping murdering paedophile tyrant false prophet mad mo.

Why don't you quote something to make your silly point, Retard? Posting a silly comment like that shows you are an ignorant fool.

When we take trinitarian Christians to task, we show them absurdities in the Christian Bible.
