“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?”

Well, the level of intelligence here is very low, while the degree of fanaticism of many posters on this thread is extremely high.

Level of intelligence is inversely proportional to the degree of fanaticism.

No - he fancies himself an atheist

But his real issue is his lack of exposure to the humanities and anthropology. He is incapable of understanding cultures from within.

She just told me she is Jewish but not ethnically.
If you bothered to follow her, you would notice she follows her own drummer.

Personally, even though I dont share her beliefs, I find her posts well thought out, interesting, and polite, basically the opposite of yours.

The drummer boy was the straw that broke the camels back and convinced me. Mainly because moments before that, I asked God for a sign and he was walking from the north, eating and dressed in blue, he was in the marching band at Blair middle school and was about 13 years old. I went out on my balcony and as soon as I saw him, I was believing and I said, "Play" and he hit the drum once and I told him he was the drummer boy. My next door neighbor, John also saw him. There is also a Mark, Matthew and Luke.

Yes, Papa, that was when I had a lower degree of perception and moreover the truth is that I was covering up or making excuses or justifying all the wrong actions of Jesus, Muhammad, Krishna, Rama, My ex-Master and others. I was influenced by several tricky apologists who gave me the impression that what these prophets did was the right thing to do and that they were infallible and could never err.

Now, that the blinkers are off and I have broken free of the vicious force hold on me I have no wish to defend anyone and am in a position to call a spade a spade.

Lots of Love and Best Regards.

First you stated she is not Jewish, and now you said she follows her own drummer? I say so what? None of the Jews today follows the Judaism of Moses.

Don't be more hypocrite than ever she follows her system while you follow your faulty system.

The gospels definitely show the Roman soldiers as dumb and stupid. Pilate is shown as a weakling, caving in to a mob and a dumb fellow.
The crucifixion story is a hoax. I don't know how can you believe it. Read Matthew and see, who did they run to report the escaped Jesus? And who offered them money?
It is all made up. The Church even wrote the history of Judea and the Romans. lol!
No one knows if it all made up, but one thing is sure, it was written not by eyewitnesses. So you are exaggerating.

my question is still non-answered. How IT was possible for the Nazarene to escape if he was escorted by the soldiers up to crucifixion?

SUSAN BLANGE TYPED ON THE MESSIANIC THREAD:

"The holy Spirit has taught me thru meditation..."

Susie,

1) What is meant by the Holy Spirit in terms of its basal constitution? Where is it?

2) How does this Holy Spirit connect with the universe?

3) What is meditation? How do you go about it? Have you entered trance, anytime?

4) What is the root vibration you focus on during meditation? Or is the Word that you focus on during meditation the mechanism of vibration which is even subtler and far more efficient when it gets activated than the vibration itself?

5) What're your supraphysical experiences in meditation?

6) What happens to the force centers along the spine and to the brain cells during meditation?

7) Are there any planes of consciousness above the head? If so, what're they? How can they be accessed?

There is no explanation in the Quran as to why the Jews wanted to kill Jesus in the first place.
Jesus said that Jews had killed (and crucified!) many prophets, sages and scribes before him, "from Abel to Zechariah"

he too didn't give an explanation why they were killed
was it because they claimed to be Sons of God? lol

the gospel quotes Jesus as saying,
"The wisdom of God said: I WILL SEND THEM PROPHETS AND APOSTLES AND SOME OF THEM THEY SHALL SLAY AND PERSECUTE" (Luke 11:49)

where is that in the tanakh?
