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?”

When the Sun comes up in the Morning, does it have to say to You....Hey, Here I am, I am the Sun? No,....Neither did Jesus have to say "I am the Son of God" Because it was self evident to the People Who he was.... The Masses followed him! They were telling him who he was, as Peter did. And when Peter raised Tabitha from the Dead by the Holy Spirit, the Gospel spread like Wild Fire throughout the region!!

Jesus was definitely unschooled.
Consider this, Scholar,

Luke 4:16 And he (Jesus) came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, "This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."

I do not believe that he read that out. You must know that the Tanakh wasn't compiled in the form of a book then. The Church cherry-picked such verses to show Jesus prophesied.

Let us assume that he did read it out. And this is what he must have read out:

"The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to bring good tidings unto the humble; He hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the eyes to them that are bound;"

It is Isaiah, who is clearly saying that the spirit of the LORD God was upon him. Taht is no prophesy either.

Isaiah did not write: "The spirit of the Lord GOD will be upon him; because the LORD will anoint him to bring good tidings unto the humble; He will send him to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the eyes to them that are bound; "

When did he ever proclaim liberty?

And why did he not go on further?

I've never lied once, nor do I ever need to. Anybody can make mistakes, but purposefully lying or purposefully making things up that don't really exist is inexcusable.
And I actually was stupid enough to actually take the time to answer all of your stupid 16 questions that you have repeated for over 100 times, one by one. So obviously, that was a complete waste of my time to only see you repeat them again after I answered them, and I will not waste my time again. You have deep issues and deep problems. Simon was spot on in his observation.

But isn't school a place where people learn things?

In the case of the Nazarene he was schooled by god.

Apparently why we need years to know many things, his god was able to give all the knowledge possible one a fraction of second.

He was never a student but always a teacher.
Besides your sentence of before you put in contraposition Yeshua and Jake sounds like one is ignorant while the other is educated. The using you made of the word unschooled you made is as synonymous of the word ignorant You even added that people need educated Messiah.

As a Muslim you are the most blasphemous.
Yes, the school is a place where people learn but Jesus did not go to school.

And then like a true anti-Islam bigot, you wrote: "In the case of the Nazarene he was schooled by god."

What a double standard!

Even Qur'aan says that Jesus was taught by God. How come you did not believe that? Same was the case with Muhammad. God taught him. Both Muhammad and Jesus were unschooled and wrote nothing.

If Jesus were literate, he would have left some notes behind. He left nothing. And since the disciples were also illiterate, they left nothing in writing too. Now, don't give me the crap that John and Matthew were his disciples. Even John was unschooled.

Why am I being called blasphemous? Is it a blasphemy to say that Jesus was not schooled or Illiterate?

The biggest blasphemy against God is to say that Jesus was God and this blasphemy is fine with you. Right?

Such verses were cherry-picked just to show Jesus, when he was not even mentioned in there.

There are a millions of people like this guy, if you will discuss with him,a dn that guy, and these guy, those guy... believe me brother you will be tired!
The best solution is ignore him, this guy wants to play with us!
And he wants to prove that he's exist!

I wonder where he's from, and what is his religion?

If he's Christian, i'm sure he doesn't know any think about Christianity, and the last time he went to the Church when he was little kid with his parents!

Even Jesus was Muslim, and he believed in the Message of Mohammed the prophet (Peace upon him) be fore he comes!

The Holy Quran proved that:

http://www.qtafsir.com/index.php...

Look at the last verse in Surah Al-Imran (Imran Chapter)!

Brother, this guy doesn't deserve to waste your worth time!

You are from Republic of Singapore which's the fourth most important financial center in the world, and the fifth port in the world in terms of activity!
Also it's global city which plays an important role in the global economy!
It's an advanced country!

Thank God, and Mashallah, we are so proud of you, and keep up guys, and go forward!

And this guy, i'm sure he's homeless, and he wants play!

Nice talking you brother, and i wish you and your amazing people well!

I shall rub your nose in Isaiah, and I am not surprised that you don't know about this:
For a child has been born to us, a son given to us, and the authority is upon his shoulder, and the wondrous adviser, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, called his name, "the prince of peace."

Prove that the version of the Torah that the world has is counterfeit. You made the claim, now back it up. Otherwise, don't even bother with the claim as nobody will believe you unless you back it up. All that it is, is merely your own unsubstantiated claim unless you back it up. And I know you will say next that you don't have to back anything up, but then again, nobody has to believe any of your claims either. Just because YOU say so, that means nothing at all.
