Who Is Allah?

There are 256487 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?”

Jesus said in Matt 23:34 that Jews had crucified (yes, CRUCIFIED) many prophets before him

While the occasional fit of bad temper is ok, savagery, and that too of the habitual kind, is always the sign of the asura whether in its own dimension or when acting through a possessed human being or animal. Anyway.

"ego eimi" is not the Greek translation of the name "YHVH"
osirica wrote:
Actually it is.
if it is, the Septuagint would've substituted all occurences of the Tetragram with "ego eimi"

"I am that I am, thus shall you say to bnei Israel: I AM has sent me to you"
Septuagint, "Ego eimi ho on, thus shall you say to bnei Israel: HO ON has sent me to you"

"HO ON has sent me to you"
not "EGO EIMI has sent me to you"

There were "unbelievers" among the Israelites? Really?
Jews did not have a problem with atheistic or polytheistic infection in that period.
Quran 5:78 "those who disbelieved" were Jews who did not believe that Jesus was sent to them by God

And really, relying on the Quran to give an excuse when it's clear we are discussing that the Quran has the facts wrong, that's really bright.

John 8:58 "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am! At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
John 10:33 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 God."

you rely on wiki, don't you? well this also from wiki,
"According to most modern scholars, John was not the author of Gospel of John.
The majority of NT scholars do not believe that John or one of the Apostles wrote it."

from the opening chapter, the impostor(s) "John"s agenda/propaganda was to promote Jesus as God

By the way it's kind of ironic your posts against El/Allah considering your name. Joel means the lord is El (god).
Your name is a sign of submission to El
What's in a name? Does the person take on the attributes of the name or is the name given because of the way the person is? God has a lot of names that describe some aspect of her personality or character and the names were given after the fact.

rabbee: if you do not know what it means, you can't translate it. leaving you with another only option, to transliterate it. and it is also impossible, to transliterate the tetragrammen into greek. since greek did not have, the correct phonetic sounds to completely do so. the last available option, is to use the origional eevreet consonants.

This was the language Moses wrote in.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleo-Hebrew_alp...

This is ALSO the first alphabet from which all of our alphabets, yours, Arabic, greek, Aramaic, modern hebrew... it's the ancestor alphabet.

If you're going to insist we read the word of God in the original form then you read THAT.

If you want to go there. Because if you truly believe in God, then you TRULY understand that it's no coiencidence that the word was written in the ancestor script, OUR ancestral script.

Dont' come in here with Arabic this and arabic that, when we all know arabic is one of many descendents of the same Paleo-HEEEEBREWWWWWWW alphabet. Alep, Bata, Gimel, Dalet... Gee whiz YA THINK???

I do not know what you mean by "original language of God's word"?
God's word remain God's word irrespective of in whichever language they came.
It is only a question of authenticity and purity of what people claim to be God's word are really God's word or words of prophet or historians or tribal story tellers.
When God sent revelation to Arabian Prophet, He send it in Arabic. When He send it to some one who spoke Aramaic, He send it in Aramaic and when He send it to some one who spoke Hebrew, He send it in Hebrew language.
And when He send it to people who speak Sanskrit, he send it in Sanskrit.
Where is the "Original language" concept in it?

rabbee: this world does not even know, anything about THE-WOMAN. they ain't never got that far. if you do not even understand THE-HE. there is no way, you are going to understand HER.this world don't even know TheTrue MALE SPIRIT of G-D, let alone THE True HER SPIRIT.

the males of this planet, don't even truly know themselves. so it is no wonder, they can't truly understand the women.

Prior to the manifestation of the supramental consciousness in the mental being (man) via an act of evolution from a state of involution, there should essentially be an intermediary stage which is the emergence of the overmental consciousness in the manu (mental being, man). The overmental being should logically precede the supramental being in the progressive evolution since the quadruple planes of the overmind are inferior to the quadruple planes of the overmind. Well.

The self is not the frontal personality nor is it the subliminal personality. The self is the central being in man and is stationed at the peak cosmic plane which is the 19th plane or so in the cosmic hierarchy.

really and this imposter...

who didn't name himself (imposters usually like to take credit), who didn't elevate himself in such a way as to contradict the other gospels (imposters usually like to make themselves the center of attention)

This imposter...

You know thanks for bringing this up. One thing that made me "not" convert to Islam was this:

The Gospels were written ABOUT Jesus, not BY Jesus.

Even Exodus, Moses doesn't go on and on about how great Moses is...

But the Quran? Oh my goodness, the guy goes on and on about himself, about how God favors him so much and how he's so important. it starts of telling me that if I don't believe in it, i'm going to hell because God has made me too deaf to believe. So it's blaming GOD for me not being convinced and I HAVENT EVEN READ THE BOOK YET!

It was proof to me that it's not right.

Just like the Book of Mormon. The guy finds the book and lo and behold it's all about HIMMMMM!!!!

The quadruple planes of the supramental consciousness - 13th to 16th planes - are inferior when compared to the individualized self which is poised at the peak cosmic plane which is the 19th plane of the cosmic hierarchy.

Beyond the peak cosmic plane is the supracosmic manifestation or the supracosmic planes wherein inhere the causal mechanisms of the cosmic planes. Beyond the supracosmic planes is the supreme causal mechanism and beyond the supreme causal mechanism is the absolute - the unified field of consciousness-energy.

and if i ever find any available woman, true to G-D on this planet. i would be asking her, to marry me to glorify G-D together. and the probability of finding any woman actually true to G-D, is not very optomistic here. when you can't even find one, who really wants to be true to G-D.

THIS is JOEL...

You're credibility has expired. All of your yapping is just like a bunch of sidekicks outside the main conversation. You want some attention too?

Oh here, everyone lets all tell Joel he's right. Good job Joel, Supramental and involution and overmental...

You know a mind is a terrible thing to use incorrectly...
