Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 256358 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?”

From the desk of Soeren Kern on Fri, 2007-08-24 11:56 Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society. via The Brussels Journal

The holy spirit mentioned in the verse, which you quoted, is Gabriel. So, Gabriel is the "Holy Spirit" there.
Ruh means Spirit and Quds means Holy.
In case of Jesus, Qur'aan says that he was strengthened with a holy spirit. But that does not mean he was strengthened by Gabriel.
It means Jesus was granted with a noble spirit. In other words, like me, Jesus ah a noble soul.
78
37. The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, the Beneficent God, they shall not be able to address Him.
38. The day on which the spirit and the angels shall stand in ranks; they shall not speak except he whom the Beneficent God permits and who speaks the right thing.

The spirit seems to mentioned as something different or distinct from the angels. I've seen all of the instances where spirit and holy spirit are mentioned in the Quran and it kind of seems like a confusing mess where one can't tell what the Quran really means by spirit or even holy spirit. The meaning seems to keep changing. It's kind of weird or almost like the author isn't keeping track of how this termed was used in the past in the Quran and gives it another meaning, then switches the meaning back again.

What does Lebanon have to do with Israel?
The Temple will be built with cedars from Lebanon. They are the ancient Phoenicians and are semitic as are most of the nations in the middle east. According to scripture, the Messiah is about to enter the world stage.

Just to quote again what statement that I brought up that caused your response above. "Heaven is like a mustard seed"
Well if you think what you just said above, then I have gained a true look into how you think about or the approach that you use to understand any of these things. So you have told me that any conversation between us will always be pointless. Don't ask me any more questions anymore, and I will not respond to anything that you say on this forum anymore, whether it is directed to me, or someone else. Deal?
Your last statement said it all. Now I KNOW how you approach things. You are actually more stupid than I ever previously imagined, and that says a lot, because I knew you were stupid, but I just had no idea just how stupid you really were.
hey deranged MPD cherry picker.
There is nothing that you can teach me from the "bible".
Been there, done it and worn the mustard t'shirt!
You are still at my feet making a slave of yourself.

Stop cherry picking from what BJ said:

If the fool said something was like a mustard seed....did he mean sunflower seed?

Hey fool...there is NO logic or reason in the NT claptrap.
You are too dumb to understand it.
So you are making up your own reality!

Here is something to keep you going....

1. "Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?"

2. "But why did you need to search?" he asked. "Didn't you know that I must be in my Father's house?"

3. And He said to them, "Why is it that you were looking for Me? Did you not know that I had to be in My Father's house?"

4. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

What did BJ actually say and mean?

Supertramp? Is that your Godly name? LOL!!! Nah, I recognize the band's name, but I don't recognize much of what you said. First it was Israel and the U.S., now it's Lebanon. The story keeps changing. And the Temple will be built in Lebanon? That's really going to piss Hezbollah off a lot and Israel too.

Look, I don't even need to get into it. There are many different views on it. But just the statement alone that Jesus existed before Abraham means a reference to his divinity. Would you care to explain how someone who claims to be a normal prophet can make a claim of existence before Abraham?
You idiot...many things existed before Abraham.
Every atom/molecule that made up BJ, existed before the "person" called abraham was born.
Predestiny.....all the characters have been included in the script from day 1.
The new prophet is more important than the old prophet as he is addresseing current issues that affects his people. Therefore, he comes before, the old chap.
More importantly, you haven't a clue as to what BJ said in Aramaic. Try not to confuse yourself using english!

So the Jews wanted to stone him merely for saying that a new prophet is more important than an old one? Especially after they saw him do miracles?

Supertramp is the Rock that beget me. Deut. 32:18. Roger Hodgson is a friend on Facebook but it's been months since I've been there. The movie "Desperately seeking Susan" in 1985 was about me. The Temple will be built on the Temple mount in Jerusalem and the Messiah will not go to Israel until then. The Jews have rejected their Messiah, prophecy fulfilled. "The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner".

Hey sicko....I am not here to prove that BJ is God or if BJ was phycially present before Abraham, which is a biological impossibility...BJ came out of the female organ of Mary about 2000 years ago and long after Abraham.

READ what BJ says....

"Before Abraham was born, I am".

If Rabbeen Al Jihad says this...What would you do?

"Before Seeker was born, I am"

What did BJ mean?

Do you know anything about "I am" and how it is misquoted by idiots like you?
