Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story 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?”

Well maybe you are right. Calling everybody else except for himself nothing but mere talking critters that are wrong about everything is pretty decent. Calling all the rest of the world 100% wrong and him 100% right is pretty decent, even if he has zero authority to do that and zero substantiation for his claim. Not only condemning posters here but also condemning their families as well to hell or complete non forgiveness is pretty decent. I guess you missed that part where he did that. Basically, anybody who doesn't believe him and dares to question his stories is condemned, and not only are they condemned, even their family is as well. It really takes a lot of nerve for someone to speak like that. He can have whatever delusions he wants, but he continually crosses the line.
I hope God is forgiving of sincere mental illness because I really never wish punishment on anybody, but sometimes he doesn't even believe certain things that he says. For example, he knows that people did not see him glow blue and say that they want what he has. If anybody ever saw something like that, they would immediately see him as incredibly special and would follow him around and you wouldn't even see him here on topix desperately trying to get people to listen to him and believe his claims.
So maybe he believes that most of what he says is true, maybe not. I really can't even be sure of that much. It's hard to say when someone has an acute mental disorder, possibly even megalomania, but probably bipolar disorder at least. It's hard to predict what they are willing to do. But I know he lied when he said that people saw him glowing blue, so there is a desperation on his part to get people to believe him, even if he has to make up a lie or two. That's a classic symptom of megalomania. They make up claims of grandeur for themselves, but that isn't good enough. They need to suck others into it and believe them as well and often they are willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish that.
You have a habit of irritating everybody.
I am sure you are struggling to find and keep friends where you live.
So you come here to annoy the hell out of others.
Rabbee has a right to his views.
Why keep telling him to shut up or insult him?
You are describing yourself in your posts and you can't even see it.
You are desperate to show others that you know everything...but we all know that you know very little.

Thank you for that, Eric.
Jesus I am sure was a normal hot blooded male.
There was NO reason whatsoever for him to remain celibate.
Those who promoted a "mangod" decided to wipe off the MAN'S 29 years from records but ended up making him look like a freak.
As usual they made mistakes upon mistakes to cover up their lies upon lies.
Why else would Magda take oils/spices to rub on a body? This is na intimate act.
That was the job of men and they would have anointed the body before sealing it in the tomb!
Magda in my view went there knowing full well that BJ was wounded but alive.
She would have rubbed spices/oils on wounds so the man could gain strength to run away!
Mark 16:2 and 16:3 are comical!
Islam is a man made religion run by men that dictate the terms of belonging to that religion.

Muslims follow the desert bandit Muhammad.
Muhammad taught Muslims how to live their lives as bandits.
God does mot exist in the Muhammad's religion.

Like all bandits organizations Muslims must kill people to keep their
religion from falling apart.
Muhammad's Quran Alex promotes insanity in the mind of Muslims.
You are an example of the insanity that Muhammad's Quran promotes in the mind of Muslims.

Christianity is not a religion!
Christianity is a personal relationship with God.

It is God that lives in the heart and mind of Christians.
And it is God who speaks and guides us through our moral conscience.

God presents Himself to us through the 7 Holy Sacraments of His Holy Church.

Baptism
For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

Eucharist
Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.

Reconciliation
The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others.

Confirmation
Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Marriage
For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.

Holy Orders
In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness.

Anointing of the Sick
The Catholic Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness.

These Sacraments are an inter actions with the living God.
God is always present in the life of Christians.

small fragment of faded papyrus contains a suggestion that Jesus may have been married.
The fragment, with just eight lines of text on the front and six lines on the back, is from a fourth-century dialogue, written in the Coptic language, between Jesus and his disciples. In it, Jesus speaks of “my wife,” according to Harvard professor Karen L. King, who discovered the fragment.
“The most exciting line in the whole fragment…is the sentence ‘Jesus said to them [his disciples], my wife…” King said in a video posted to Harvard’s YouTube channel. The next line of text reads,“She will be able to be my disciple.”
“This is the only extant ancient text which explicitly portrays Jesus as referring to a wife,”
I can believe that. According to the Gospel of Philip, it is believed that Jesus used to kiss Mary Magdalene and the disciples did not like that and grumbled.

There is a hint in Luke 8:

"8 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God.

The Twelve were with him, 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; 3 Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others.

These women were helping to support them out of their own means."

Quite interesting, bro.
I have already pointed out how naked BJ (he wasn't wearing a shroud , was he?)whacked 7 demons out of Magda in Mark's made up verses.

But the wording is quite vague in 16:9 which obviously contradicts with 16:8.

Let's find out what these 7 demons are.
Do they have a name?
Why 7?

I already have explained the Trinity in the past but two dunces like you didn't get it, and so it's pretty much useless to repeat myself to people who are deaf or incapable to understand elementary things. I saw that a lot of posters love to talk about arguments yet discussed in the past like if we never discussed before. That's a sympton of something.

I conclude that you have made an affermation of your ass, as always.

Islam is a man made religion run by men that dictate the terms of belonging to that religion.

Muslims rely on the teachings of the pagan desert bandit Muhammad for your truths.

This is the future Muslims are promoting as the religion of God for the world on this link.


Muslims demand people must die so that their God can rule the world.
That is not the religion of God, that is the religion of blood thirsty demonized men seeking power and control over God.

Muslims are the living evidence that Muhammad's Quran promotes insanity in the mind of Muslims.

Christianity is a personal relationship with God.

affermation!
Now then....
What is a Trinity..Please explain.

Also...are you able to tackle any one of these without lying?
A)Is BJ(biblical Jesus) "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 a person answers these SINCERELY, they 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 own interpretations"
…………………………
Show us where Jesus makes 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)

C) Is Jesus "fully man and fully God"?

D) Define "Trinity" in your own words.

E) Here is a further Trinity conundrum:
Where was god the father when BJ was on earth?
Where was god the ghost when BJ was on earth?
Where was god the son when BJ was on earth (this question may sound weird but there is a reason for it!)?

Where is god the father right now?
Where is god the ghost/spirit right now?
Where is god the son right now?
