Who Is Allah?

There are 251047 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?”

God bless you, BMZ.
So how do you feel about Muslims nullifying Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection which was the most important part of his mission? As a Christian, which you at least "claim" yourself to be, how is this not highly insulting or even downright blasphemous? Do you think that Jesus would approve of you passively accepting people that try to wipe out the most important part of his mission?

HughBe has already challenged this fool on the subject.
Instead of responding to him he is bouncing up and down like a ball on heat! LOL..
Why should I correct the fool when he can't even answer these VERY simple questions?

Let's ask him again...
A)Is BJ "The Only Begotten Son of God" or "The Only Begotten Son of god the father"?
(who is BJ's daddy? God or god the father?)

B)
……
If you answer these SINCERELY, you will know that Jesus is NOT G-d.

READ the instructions carefully and answer the questions.

The instructions are very simple...
"Give YES or NO answers providing relevant chapters and verses as proof. No need for any additional comments or your own interpretations"
…………………………

Show us where Jesus is making DIRECT claims in the first person as follows, in the Synoptic Gospels OR EVEN GOSPEL OF JOHN, by giving us chapter/verse as proof:

1. "I am God in 'the' 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)

I am sure your intentions are sincere, Eric.
Unfortunately, I don't trust the politicians who are destroying nations by emotionally blackmailing us.
They pretend to help the innocent but punish them even more severely.
Can you think of one mideastern country that they have really saved lately? None.
I sure hope that we both have similar concept of humanity.

But right from Quran that we know Al Ilah is a male chauvinistic god.
Another case of pot calling the kettle black.
By using the expression..."a bit fairer" (I said ..Quran is a "bit" fairer than your male chauvinistic books), I am being very modest, although in my heart I believe that Quran is infinitely superior.

Can we find many verses in OT and NT giving men and women equal rights by addressing both? Perhaps I may have missed some of them. That is why I said Quran is "a bit fairer" and NOT "a lot fairer" or "infinitely superior".

According to Islam there is no difference between men and women in their relationship to Allah/GOD, as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct.

The Quran says:

"And for women are rights over men similar to those of men over women." [Quran 2:228]

The Quran, in addressing the believers, often uses the expression,'believing men and women' to emphasize the equality of men and women in regard to their respective duties, rights, virtues and merits.

It also says:

"For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward." [Noble Quran 33:35]

This contradicts the assertion of the Christian Fathers that women do not possess souls and that they will exist as sexless beings in the next life. The Quran says that women have souls in exactly the same way as men and will enter Paradise if they do good:
