you had to ruin a good thing didn't you. Well there goes hope for humanity.
Iv always wondered tho, And its a hard topic to research.
What god does the muslims exactly worship? I know they grovel to a man who claims to be a prophet( Which is a sin) as God but really. Who is the God
that charges the prophet with their power?
What is an Allah? What does an Allah look like?
In Islamic theology, God (Arabic: الله Allāh) is the all-powerful and all-knowing creator, sustainer, ordainer and judge of the universe.
Islam emphasizes that God is strictly singular (tawḥīd ) unique (wāḥid ) and inherently One (aḥad ), all-merciful and omnipotent.
According to Islamic teachings, God exists without place and according to the Qur'an, "Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives [all] vision;
and He is the Subtle, the Acquainted." (Qur'an 6:103) God, as referenced in the Qur'an, is the only God. (29:46)
*In Islam, there are 99 Names of God (al-asmāʼ al-ḥusná lit. meaning: "The best names") each of which evoke a distinct attribute of God.
All these names refer to Allah, the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name. Among the 99 names of God, the most familiar and frequent of these
names are "the Compassionate" (al-raḥmān) and "the Merciful" (al-raḥīm). Creation and ordering of the universe is seen as an act of
prime mercy for which all creatures sing God's glories and bear witness to God's unity and lordship. God responds to those in need or distress
whenever they call. Above all, God guides humanity to the right way, “the holy ways.”*
??? just sounds like they are describing moral attributes? But what is AN ALLAH?
*Muslims reject the Christian doctrine of the Trinity and divinity of Jesus, comparing it to polytheism. In Islam, God is beyond all comprehension or
equal and does not resemble any of his creations in any way. Thus, Muslims are not iconodules and are not expected to visualize God.
According to Vincent J. Cornell, the Qur'an also provides a monist image of God by describing the reality as a unified whole, with God being a single
concept that would describe or ascribe all existing things: "God is the First and the Last, the Outward and the Inward; God is the Knower of
everything." (Sura 57:3) Some Muslims have however vigorously criticized interpretations that would lead to a monist view of God for what they
see as blurring the distinction between the creator and the creature, and its incompatibility with the monotheism of Islam.
The indivisibility of God implies the indivisibility of God's sovereignty which in turn leads to the conception of a universe as a just and coherent
moral universe rather than an existential and moral chaos. Similarly the Qur'an rejects the binary modes of thinking such as the idea of duality of
God by arguing that both good and evil generate from God's creative act and that the evil forces have no power to create anything. God in Islam is a
universal god rather than a local, tribal or parochial one; an absolute who integrates all affirmative values and brooks no evil.
Tawhid constitutes the foremost article of the Muslim profession. To attribute divinity to a created entity is the only unpardonable sin mentioned
in the Qur'an. Muslims believe that the entirety of the Islamic teaching rests on the principle of Tawhid.*
So let me get this straight, The believe in just the concept of God as the same most Christians do ( without really understanding the bible) Claim
invisability and formlessness.
Well im sorry, but even formlessness even has a shape, Iv seen it in person. It looks exactly how its discribed. Formless, Like a black mass without
DIfference is, All the radical beliefs tied to this book.
Plenty of mention of love for god but for all i know it could be ba'al.
There is little in the way of identifying, Even Satan an be identified by the fact snakes and dragons are repeadily mentioned.
But where does that leave god?
Well he appears many times in a black cloud * formlessness* He has also appeared as a Lion on a couple of occasions.
At least thats something a little more direct in your faiths. Just praying to the cosmic enitity of no identity is vain. And what's even more
disturbing is the fact a man claims to be the prophet of this so called *allah*. He could be the prophet of an evil alien species when he points up to
the first paranormal craft he sees.
That's fantastic, The bible warns about doing that. That's why there were the stories of the watchers.
The Lion Has Roared Amos 3
3 Listen to this, Israel. God is calling you to account—and I mean all of you, everyone connected with the family that he delivered out of Egypt.
2 “Out of all the families on earth,
I picked you.
Therefore, because of your special calling,
I’m holding you responsible for all your sins.”
3-7 Do two people walk hand in hand
if they aren’t going to the same place?
Does a lion roar in the forest
if there’s no carcass to devour?
Does a young lion growl with pleasure
if he hasn’t caught his supper?
Does a bird fall to the ground
if it hasn’t been hit with a stone?
Does a trap spring shut
if nothing trips it?
When the alarm goes off in the city,
aren’t people alarmed?
And when disaster strikes the city,
doesn’t God stand behind it?
The fact is, God, the Master, does nothing
without first telling his prophets the whole story.
8 The lion has roared—
who isn’t frightened?
God has spoken—
what prophet can keep quiet?
9-11 Announce to the forts of Assyria,
announce to the forts of Egypt—
Tell them, “Gather on the Samaritan mountains, take a good, hard look:
what a snake pit of brutality and terror!
They can’t—or won’t—do one thing right.” God said so.
“They stockpile violence and blight.
Therefore”—this is God’s Word—“an enemy will surround the country.
He’ll strip you of your power and plunder your forts.”
12 God’s Message:
“In the same way that a shepherd
trying to save a lamb from a lion
Manages to recover
just a pair of legs or the scrap of an ear,
So will little be saved of the Israelites
who live in Samaria—
A couple of old chairs at most,
the broken leg of a table.
13-15 “Listen and bring witness against Jacob’s family”—
this is God’s Word, God-of-the-Angel-Armies!
“Note well! The day I make Israel pay for its sins,
pay for the sin-altars of worship at Bethel,
The horned altars will all be dehorned
and scattered around.
I’ll tear down the winter palace,
smash the summer palace—all your fancy buildings.
The luxury homes will be demolished,
all those pretentious houses.”
