Nice play on words, it's spelled Kabbalah not kaballah
And it is Jewish, so if anything, it would do nothing but link Judaea and Islam
and "ab" means father in both Arabic and Hebrew, so where are you getting your translation?
The last paragraph of the text above does give a clue regarding the title of this thread though, depending on how you look at it (perhaps even changing it to "Christendom, Islam and Judaism").
The apostle Paul described the Devil as “the god of this system of things.” (2 Corinthians 4:4) As “the ruler of this world,” the Devil has promoted countless false gods. (John 12:31) Hence, all worship addressed to man-made gods is, in effect, worship rendered to Satan. But Satan is not a god who merits our worship.
There is another reason for the Bible’s stern warning against worshipping anyone or anything other than Jehovah God. Such worship would be a monumental waste of time and effort. The prophet Isaiah aptly stated: “Who has formed a god or cast a mere molten image? Of no benefit at all has it been.” (Isaiah 44:10) The Bible also says that “all the gods of the peoples are valueless gods.” (Psalm 96:5) False gods are nothing, and worshipping nothing achieves nothing.
Often these imaginary gods are represented by idols made of materials found in nature, such as metal or wood.

A fool thinks the majority has truth on their side. History says differntly. Its always the majority that brings the free thinkers and innovators down.
Jesus was killed because of the majority who thought the jewish path was the real truth. Now christians are the majority who think they have the truth.
I think there is a verse or two about narrow path in the bible. Even they know that most will not find this "truth" or experiance that they are refering to.
Well, i hate to break it to christians, but they are far from that narrow path.
Then again, who really knows what they were talking about. It's all so very interpretable. Only a mad god would inspire holy half-literate books with unclear messages.
Unless that is the point. To decieve and divide under the guise of a "good" god.
I can't stand Paul. Loathe would probably be a better word. I also loathe YHWH.
