Who Is Allah?

“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?”

You have come back to your circular and rhetoric style.
Such posts need no answer and show how meaningless is to to discuss any thing reasonably and logically with persons like you.
There is nothing to discuss.
Mohammed was no prophet, and to promote Mohammed's lies is a sin against God.

Jesus volunteered to be under the law in order to fulfill the law,
so that being under the law He could redeem us from the curse of the law.
Now those that believe in Jesus are not under the curse of the law, but live by faith instead of the by the works of the law.
In other words God made it mandatory to believe in Jesus or live under the law like Jews and Muslims have put them self under and now must face the consequence of breaking the law, which constitutes committing sin under the law.
In which there is no more animal sacrifice for the atonement of sin, which means Jews and Muslims will die in their sins, and be judged by God and face damnation for their sins, since there is no more animal sacrifice for the atonement of their sins.
For as God put it is the blood sacrificed that brought atonement, and the only blood sacrifice now that brings atonement is the precious blood of Jesus shed on the cross, which of course the Jews and Muslims reject.
LOL!

Don't you know?
My main point was that consciousness is awareness.
Your fucked up Sri Sri Thakur Anukulchandra, Gurus and Yogis churned out balderdash, junk and stuff, which is based on mysticism and myths, not reality.
Now, tell me fool, how can consciousness be related to Energy and force?
I have also told you that force does not descend, it acts. Have you ever studied Mathematics?

<quoted text>Not really. Yet when a person is jealous, etc., or a country goes to war and the devotees of that person or country are all for it, that is ok, isn't it? As a matter of fact, people can enjoy football, soccer, and such games, even going along with the fact that they are competitive, encourage gambling for some, and some people get seriously hurt, sometimes get brain concussions and so forth. You are saying then it is wrong for a husband or wife to be unhappy (jealous even) when the mate takes a shine or moreso to another person? My next question is for you to think about since you think it's just awful that God would inflict a punishment such as death -- do you mind dying or would you rather not die? I hope these don't sound like ridiculous questions to you, but frankly I can't understand why you would think it's wrong to be jealous under certain cicumstances, and we can go by the other situations you bring up as an indictment against God, if you will.
You are equating god and man. Doesn't it sound silly? According to your reasoning if man needs oxygen, water, and food to live then I gotta find normal if god sayd it does too?

But who is more bastard someone who was recorded to have made and ordered to make bad things or the people who followed its instruction and if you try to point out all the terrible things attribuited to the deity they worship, they deny it or minimize everything?

It's a case of like attracts like.

If people were sensible, psycho-biologically normal, thoughtful, moral, rational and of good will and devoid of serious personality defects then they'd not have veered towards evils and abominations.

Birds of a feather flock together.

Once Muhammad walked in on naked jaynab, who was his daughter in law, and got horny. Right after that Allah spoke to him to tell that Zayed should divorce Jaynab so that she can marry Muhammad.

Fool,
What do names matter when the innate nature and deeds of an entity count for everything?
Will changing the name of YHVH to Aten or whatever convert this Lord of Evil, Murder, Falsehood, Bigotry, Jealousy and Rage into a true and benign God?
LOL.
The only fool here is one that is blind to the truth. There is one creator, there is no evil only created by mankinds own making. As to devil, demons, angels, must be created to exist by a primary creator. For them to play out influences of evil or good would be subject to the creator's direction. If the creator was truely evil you wouldnt exist as you wouldn't be of any value or have a right to exist.

Islams love of evil attact and kill innocent people.

QUETTA, PAKISTAN - A terrorist attack has claimed the lives of six Church of Christ members, according to a ministry trainer in the Middle East.

The deadly attack occurred June 11 near Quetta, the capital of Pakistan’s Balochistan province, the British Broadcasting Corp reported.

A bomb planted on a motorbike detonated, destroying a passenger bus. The apparent target of the attack was a bus of pilgrims who follow the Shiite branch of Islam,.

Apparently, the timed device attached to the motorbike detonated too late, missing the bus of pilgrims and instead destroying a passenger bus. Six people died in the blast and at least 40 were injured, the BBC reported.

The number of deaths has since risen to 18, said Philip Ganta, an Indian Christian who oversees the Dubai School of Preaching, a ministry training facility in the Middle Eastern nation of United Arab Emirates. Foreign nationals who come to Dubai for employment study at the school.

Christians from Pakistan and Afghanistan were on the bus, Ganta said, and six of them died. At least 10 more were injured. Some of the Christians had studied at the Dubai School of Preaching and were en route to work with believers in Balochistan, Ganta said.

The school’s students and church members in Dubai collected more than $1,000 to help the victims’ families.

Oasis Outreach, a church-supported ministry that works with the Dubai school, also is collecting funds. The ministry is a work of the Brooks Avenue Church of Christ in Raleigh, N.C.

“Over the coming weeks we are hoping to raise $5,000 in aid for the families of these believers,” said Mike O’Leary, director of Oasis Outreach.“Many of them have lost the only breadwinner in the family.

“Hopefully, we will be able to ease their suffering by showing God’s love to those of his household through those in his kingdom.”

So you do agree that evil exists. but at man's making, not God's doing.

[QUOTE who="Enlighten"] As to devil, demons, angels, must be created to exist by a primary creator. For them to play out influences of evil or good would be subject to the creator's direction. If the creator s truely evil you wouldnt exist as you wouldn't be of any value or have a right to exist.
Your last point was cogent, mentioning that if the one that created life and mankind were truly evil, he would not allow us to enjoy anything in life, I guess you could say he'd be torturing people right here and now in hellfire. However I'd like to ask you about why you think that devil, demons, were created by a primary creator.

Would you like to be like your god?
I can only answer you right now this way. Genesis 3:20+ "Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living. The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And the Lord God said,“The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken."

Question: since it seems you believe you are your own god, would you evict a bad and destructive tenant from a beautiful home you built? That's question number 1.

What is has to do with religion? Muslims and Non Muslims both are working in Saudi Arabia.
You are getting confused with Karl Marx ideas, what he wrote was wrong and without any proof.
There was much more exploitation in Communist regimes than any where else.
There were hollow words that look very good on paper.
Without proving that there is no creator and what is our purpose of our life, he had no authority or power to issue such statements.
And fall of Communism showed every one that what was Opium of masses was his philosophy and not religion.
Religion is as strong in Russia and all other communist countries as it was before they took over those countries.
The Marx comment was directed at the poster called MUQ who rationalized their place in life as a clog in the machine as Gods will. If that isnt an opiate answer, I dont know what is.

God turned His face away from the Jews till they recognize Jesus Christ as their Lord and Master.

Finally we have come to the place I knew we would. You don't have to abide by the commandments because you have the get out of jail free card - Jesus. It took a few weeks but I knew we'd get there. We were discussing Shabbat. We now have the answer. You don't have to keep Shabbat because you have the get out of jail free card. You don't have to abide by any of the other commandments because you have the get out of jail free card.
So, I ask you the question again. Why didn't Jesus redeem you and other Christians from the laws on homosexuality? Why is the law on homosexuality different from the laws on Shabbat, or the laws on diet, or the laws on festivals, etc.?
