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?”

The scripture in the NT is direct from Jesus as he taught to his disciples.
That is Horse Shit, Shamma

The disciples were dumb and unteachable. Jesus contributed nothing to the NT. In fact, Jesus is unaware of this book, which was written centuries after he was gone.

If he comes by mistake and the Church presents him the NT, Jesus will throw it away.

<quoted text>The information in the Quran is not the same as in the NT.
The Quran reveals that Muhammad raped, robbed, and murdered for booty and shared it with a god Muhammad called Allah.
Qur'aan does not reveal or say anything like that. Keep lying like the self-loathing and lying founding fathers of the Church!

By the way, the biblical Jesus was maintained by women and that is very telling.

I am trying to find common ground between the Muslims and Christians as a starting point. There are other consistencies between the 2 works.
I await Shamma's response
There is no common ground between Christians and Muslims.

From the Muslim point of view:
They must face these people bravely and explicitly put it to them: "You have your own religion, and I have mine." Our religion is based on absolute monotheism whose concepts, values, beliefs and laws cover all aspects of human life and are all received from Allah and none else.

With out this basic separation confusion, double-dealing, doubt and distortion will certainly persist. And let it be clear in our minds here that the movement advocating Islam can never be constructed on any ambiguous or feeble foundations, but has to be built upon firmness, explicitness, frankness and fortitude as embodied in Allah's instruction to us to declare: "You have your own religion, and I have mine".

Such was the way adopted by the Islamic call in its early days.
And is still the Islam way to day.

Muhammad declared that declaration first in dealing with the pagan Arabs who worshiped Allah besides all the 360 other idols.
And that is the stand Muslims take against all other religions.

It does not matter to Muslims that the Quran is filled with falsehoods and contradictions.
The Muslim stand is: "You have your own religion, and I have mine".

But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you...But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." John 14:16,17,26
Jesus said, "When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me." John 15:26 Jesus also said, "But I tell you the truth: It is good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you....He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you." John 16:7,14

Hi Sham, is BMZ a prophet?

My reason for asking is that he said that you would not have dealt with or answered the questions in my post below. Interestingly, many will think that you have addressed the points raised but you have only gone off on a tangent.

----------

Shamma---All through Scripture the Will of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all the same Will as of the Father.

HughBe--- Please give a couple of examples of the will of the Holy Spirit. Do so from the OT and the NT.

Shamma---Show me where in Scripture you believe the Will of the Father differs from the Will of the Son and Holy Spirit?

HughBe--- Unable to do so.

Shamma---If there is no difference between the Will of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit than there is no difference in the essence substance of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

HughBe--- I see. What is your will for the life to come? Is your will different from the will of other Christians who look to that life?

Are all of you the same?

Shamma---Each are united in the one essence substance of the Father.

HughBe---support from scripture

Shamma---So show me how you MAKE the claim there are three different Gods out of the one Substance of God the Father?

HughBe--- I have never made such a claim. Also I am not in the habit of making Gods or gods by claims or otherwise.

Psalm 110 speaks of the Son sitting on the right hand of the father, please tell me if the Holy Spirit sits on the left hand and support with scripture.

Your intellect failed to grasp who the Holy Spirit is.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God.
God is Triune.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Where ever the Father and Son are the Holy Spirit is presence.
The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.

While on earth Jesus in the body could not separate himself from the Holy Spirit.

. Without Jesus coming to the earth and accomplishing what He did, there could be no ministry of the Holy Spirit. The whole plan of God hinges on the redemptive work of Christ.

But, once His work was done, it was actually to our advantage to have Jesus return to His Father and send the Holy Spirit to take His place.

"But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." John 14:16,17,26

Jesus said, "When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me." John 15:26 Jesus also said, "But I tell you the truth: It is good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you....He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you." John 16:7,14

When Jesus ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father, The Holy Spirit was sent by The Father and by Jesus to dwell into the heart and mind of the disciples and enlightened them to the truths of who Jesus truly is.

When you read my post it points out that the Holy Spirit is sent from the Father and from the Son, and together they are worshiped and glorified in unity with One with the Father.

The Holy Spirit of God is not limited to boundary's.
When God sends forth His Holy Spirit it comes forth from the Father and the Son.

Once the disciples received the Holy Spirit from God they were so enlightened that they willing gave up their life rather than denounce Jesus.

Your remarks reveal you are not reborn again.
You live in your fallen nature inherited from Adam and Eve.
Paul submitted to God and accepted Jesus as his Savior and was reborn again through the baptism of water and the Spirit and received the Holy Spirit of God and his sins were washed away with with the blood of Jesus on the cross.

Romans 6:1-4

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints... For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. Ephesians (1:16-18; 2:10-13).

When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, something happened to you. You were created in Christ Jesus. You were given an inheritance. Now, you are in Christ Jesus. You are born of God.

You are not born of God MUQ, you remain born in the fallen nature of Adam and Eve.

Hi BMZ, if you have no objection please give me your comments on my post below. It is a repost.

Listen to the tape below starting from 3 minutes and more precisely 3:30. It has Former Israeli Prime Minister Barak on BBC World when the 9/11 news was BREAKING.

Explain his following comments. Is he a prophet?

1. The WORLD will not be the same. He was correct. 1 out of 1.

2. Bin Laden is thrown into the picture immediately, by Barak. Why? What justifiable reasons did Barak have to mention Bin Laden while the thing was Breaking News? None, on the face of it but he did.

Was Barak right about Bin Laden? Yes. Based on the official story.

So Barak got 2 prophecies right out of 2 predictions and keep in mind that they were made at the time the news was Breaking. The man is a prophet.

3. Barak said, CROSSING BORDERS or going on a PLANE will become more complicated. He was correct. How did he know this? That is 3 out of 3.

You have the proof i.e. before you now board a plane you get a complimentary feel-up or you participate in a porn movie as the actor.

4. Why did he speak about crossing BORDERS? The planes were hijacked in the US. So why mention BORDERS? He was right about crossing BORDERS.

4 out of 4 for prophet Barak.

5. Barak said, it is time to launch a war against terror even if it takes (causes) certain PAINS from the ROUTINE activities of our normal society. Was he right? YES. 5 out of 5 for Barak the prophet.

6. Barak said there must be a global effort led by the US against terror against Iran, Iraq etc. without which there will be NO WORLD ORDER, NO WORLD ORDER possible.

Was he right?

Yes. 6 out of 6 for Barak the prophet.
