Who Is Allah?

There are 256289 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?”

OK. It means you have never read it before. It is in Acts.

Acts 4:13 New International Version (©2011)

"When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus."

According to this, John was also an illiterate.

Allah is the proper name, personal name, of the Arabic pagan moon-God!
The word "god" in Arabic is 'illah' not Allah.
That's interesting. Can you link something that talks about this and substantiates this? I'm all ears.

<quoted text>
For example: There is no 'god' but 'God'?
That would be a very stupid reason to blow yourself off or killing innocent people.
If "Allah" is "greater" then there MUST be some OTHER being being compared too, right?
Well it could just mean that Allah is greater than people and their plans. But others say it means that Allah is greater than you God.

Here's an interesting article that seems to back what you say and even shows the Arabic. It seems somewhat convincing, even though it is from an anti Islam site. Just because it's an anti Islam site, does not mean it is always wrong and it seems to lay it all out very factually.

Well, I don't believe anything about Islam except that it was a con by Muhammad to create a monotheistic religion for the Arabs. So I don't think that I have anything to worry about. This guy had no scriptures to use from the descendants of Ishmael before him, and he was supposed to be a descendant of Ishmael. so he had to hijack the scriptures of the descendants of Isaac to use as his basis and platform because he couldn't just make up a new religion out of nowhere. Then, after he hijacked them, he had to level the charge of corruption against them so that if he says anything that contradicts them, he could just say that part is corrupted. And then, to attract the pagans, we have the name Allah, and the Kaaba, Black Stone and the Jinn were all taken from the Meccan pagan religion and incorporated into Islam. So it seems like he was willing to incorporate anything, if it meant gaining more followers and growing his army. And, after the Jews essentially rejected him, he changed the prayer direction of Islam, which was originally Jerusalem, to attract the Jews, to Mecca and the previously pagan Kaaba. And then to explain this bizarre change of prayer direction after thousands of years, he says it's a test from Allah. Hmmm..... Quite the con artist this guy was.

Paul is THE Master of "Christians", you agree.
His "word" is their command.

Ya know, I would have to agree with that. And fools just drink it all up.

Matthew 7
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

21 “Not everyone who says to me,‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly,‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

You don't understand anything including the NT!

Oh, I knew about that verse. I'm not sure that unschooled means illiterate. Most ordinary were literate because they had to learn how to read the scriptures of Judaism. I took that to mean that they weren't scholars, they were just ordinary, rather than literally meaning illiterate. How could they make the judgement that they were illiterate without first asking them to read from a book? Think about it. Once again, you just didn't get the meaning.

http://biblehub.com/acts/4-13.htm
"Unlearned and ignorant men. The term unlearned (&#7936;&#947;&#96 1;&#8049;&#956;&#9 56;&#945;&#964;&#9 59;&#962;) means that they had no "knowledge of Jewish culture" beyond the Scriptures. Ignorant men was a technical term for those who had not studied in rabbinic schools. The word hediot occurs frequently in the Talmud (Farrar's 'Life of St. Paul,' vol. 1. p. 106). They took knowledge, etc. Annas and Caiaphas or some of their people, it is likely, had seen them in the high priest's palace"

And BMZ, look at Phallics. We could call him very unlearned because he never studied Islam formally and never really researched it and read tafsir, but that doesn't mean he's illiterate. Even rabbee isn't illiterate, even though he has a tough time creating a coherent, understandable sentence.

hey phallus seeker.
Did you know that you haven't a clue about the Gospels.
However, I must say that you are "consistent"....Cons istently wrong!!
You get almost everything wrong but carry on without stopping!
Did you not kow that you are the "thread idiot"?
Now we can give you another chance to redeem yourself if you can find some really good verses from the synoptic gospels, starting with Mark...
Did Jesus say any of these?
1. "I am God in flesh"
2. "I am God!"
3. "I am THE only begotten son of God"
4. "I am God in person"
5. "I am God Incarnate"
6. "I am THE Father and Father and I are one and the same person"
7. "I am made of sin"
8. "God is a trinity and I am part of that trinity or triune"
9. "I am your God who came to earth in human form as my own son to die on a Roman cross for the sins of Gentiles or the world or the entire humanity/"
10. "Through belief in my unconditional/loving/willing sacrifice as your God in human form as my own son, you can have eternal life"
11. "Therefore, Worship me and the cross"
12. "Father, ghost and I are co equal, co eternal and consubstantial gods forming a godhead"
13.“I, Jesus, existed before God as Word and I, Jesus, became God”
14.“Hey Philip! I am THE Father"
15. "Worship and kiss the cross and get your pope to kiss it, carry it with him and raise it like Moses' serpent"
16.“My mission is not to bring a book, but to die for sins of GENTILES and JEWS”
17. "I am your saviour (dear gentiles)"

Hey, latter day Peter!!
Try this one for size...
HERE IS THE BIGGEST "jesus christ messiah god" BUBBLE BURSTER THAT TOTALLY WIPES OFF CHRISTIANITY FROM PLANET EARTH.......

Instead of saying..."Andrew said/thought BJ was "this", Peter thought/said, BJ was "that", Thomas thought/said "BJ was the other"....

YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE “PURPOSE” BEHIND THE QUESTIONS BY THE JEWISH ELDERS…

** The people who asked the questions from Jesus were NOT Christians or Pagans.

** They were JEWISH elders!

** That's why I give a list of JEWISH elders....WHO KNOW WHAT THEY WERE/ARE LOOKING FOR!!

** The ONLY PEOPLE who can LEGITIMATELY BURY this dumb "god" ARE JEWS!!

** The JEWS are STILL ALIVE despite ALL the efforts by the moronic "christians" to DESTROY ALL of THEM for nearly 2000years!!!

** The JEWS are STILL AWAITING THEIR MESSIAH just like the ones who lived 2000+ years ago!!!

** The LEARNED JEWS at that time denied Jesus as messiah.

** I have GIVEN a sample list BELOW of the JEWISH ELDERS of TODAY from AROUND THE WORLD who as A GROUP are PROBABLY MORE LEARNED than the ones 2000YEARS AGO....

** If a man comes forward as a Messiah of the Jews TODAY and gets QUESTIONED by this group of ELDERS...

HOW will THEY FRAME the QUESTION?

.."ARE YOU THE MESSIAH, OUR L-ORD G-D BRINGING US SALVATION?"
.. "ARE YOU THE MESSIAH, SON OF OUR L-RD G-D....ETC"

OR SIMPLY...

"ARE YOU OUR MESSIAH SENT BY OUR L-RD G-D"?

..........
THE SAMPLE LIST OF ELDERS of TODAY....

THIS ALSO BLOWS Matt 26:63 TO A ZILLION PIECES...!!!!

hello phallus worshipper...
Did you not know that cross..pole...etc are quite phallic?
Why do Christians use the Celtic Cross

Whilst the circle might have originally represented a moon god, the Sun god, a cosmic wheel, or a phallic symbol plus an association with everlasting life; when the stone crosses were carved by Christians, they were doing so with their Christian God in mind.

god"head"? lol
