Quote# 44050

[irony overdose]

The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob cannot be manipulated by evil. As certain people act in evil - murdering, lying, destroying, etc. and say Allah told them to do it. This is not the one true God, the God of Israel. This is evil and has no place with God. My frustration is dying down now, as I remember that my God, the only God, is compassionate, merciful, forgiving and giving and loves justice. This is not Allah.

For crying out loud, they're the same deity!

In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful ...

... now why does that sound familiar?

God tells you to murder your son. What do you do?

"The God of Abraham"

Yes, that's who they're talking about. I'm guessing this one knows nothing about Ishmael?

"say Allah told them to do it"

Weren't some of these the ones defending the Knoxville shooter because "God" must have wanted him to do it?

"This is not the one true God, the God of Israel"

Um, yeah, it is, sorry. Maybe actually read sometimes?

"my God"

A bit possessive are we?

"the only God"

says who? Reading through your bible, I'm more lead to believe it's alluding more to the existence of others than denying it. Thus the need for "no other gods before me" not "shall have no other gods", not "there are no other gods" but "I come first". Man was the one who started the whole "one true god thing" changing your immutable word again, just like the whole incident in the Garden of Eden none of you ever pick up on.

"the only God"

again, yes it is. Unless I'm forgetting something, Abraham had two sons (that we'll discuss now). Isaac, and Ishmael. I may have it backwards, but first came Ishmael, but he was out of wedlock or not official for some reason. Then was Isaac who was what everyone wanted, but technically second. So when the big discussion came about as to who was the first son, some people said Ishmael, some people said Isaac, and so lines between Yahweh (Sorry, you probably know him best as simply "god") and Allah were drawn, but not really. So ultimately Allah and Yahweh are more the same than you insist "God" and Jesus are.

My apologies if there are errors in my history lesson, but I think for something I don't follow I probably did reasonably well.

Just replace 'Allah' with 'Jehovah' and you've got the Old Testament.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Why should your god, who is also Allah, be manipulated by evil? He created it!

2 Kings 6:33 - "Behold, this evil is of the Lord."

Isaiah 45:7 - "I form the light, and create darkness. I make peace and create evil. I the LORD do all these things."

Amos 3:6 - "Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?"

I read about your compassionate, merciful, loving God in the Old Testament. I must have overlooked something. To me he seems like a genocidal psychopath.

Does Timmy Boy know he just quoted from the Qu'ran?

Sounds like a wife denying the guilt of a violent and abusive husband.

"No! No! He wouldn't hurt me! He wouldn't do bad things! He's a good man. I don't believe you! It couldn't have been him!"

"Allah" is the Arabic word for the God of Israel. The Gospels call him "Theos". The Jews called him "Elohim". Is everybody who doesn't speak English worshiping a false god?

Allegory for Jesus

"As certain people act in evil - murdering, lying, destroying, etc. and say Allah told them to do it. This is not the one true God, the God of Israel. This is evil and has no place with God."

No True God puts sugar on the corpses of those who were killed in his name.

"Is everybody who doesn't speak English worshiping a false god?"

Yes. God wrote the Bible in English, don't you know.

And kudos to Mayhem to comparing the Biblical god to an abusive husband. "He's a good person; we just make him angry."

Yeah because no one ever manipulates the "Christian God" to commit unspeakable acts in his name. I smell denial.

Didn't Abraham marry his sister? Yes? And you worship him? You must be from the Bible Belt.

Bombing abortion clinics in the name of God?
Shooting abortion doctors?
Assaulting the women?
Lying for Jesus?

Just some of the common 'evil sins' done in the name of the Christian God.

Osiris: Interestingly, rabbinical tradition could be construed to imply that Abraham's reaction DID bring forth evidence of corruption within himself. According to Leviticus Mishnah (or thereabouts...), Sarah died of horror and grief when Isaac came down (before Abraham did) and told her why they'd been absent. At that time, Abraham was coming down, troubled by what he thought was the reason for the sacrifice being cancelled—that Isaac had a blemish that made him unfit.

Don't forget that in rabbinical tradition, it isn't counted as blameworthy to be angry at God (Job 42:7 can certainly be seen in this light).

Um... Muslims worship the same God as Christians, they just have an extra prophet and think Jesus was a prophet, not God. Jews worship the same God as Christians, they just think Jesus was a man and not God.

...what would these people think if I said Brahman was the same God as all of the above?

A false religion dreamed up by goat-sodomisers whose lungs and ears were filled with sand, and thier brains fried by the desert sun.
All these fucked-up religions started in the Middle Eastern deserts and should have stayed there.
Now here's a thought. Rupture Ready should ALL move to where thier belief originated. Why not? You all seem to be experts on that region, though I doubt if any of you have ever been there to see for yourselves.
I spent 16 years there.

We'll take bets are to how long you survive.

God is not Allah in the same way that Joseph is not Jose and not Giuseppe.
