The god of Abraham.

All pointless in my opinion. Faith will only continue to die, even the Chatholics, now proclaiming that homosexuals are welcome as a desperate grab for converts, will not slow their own demise.

As the Dalai Lama has said “Let this be a century of dialog.”

The Dalai Lama also believes that people of all faiths have the potential to be good people. So do I.

I have friends who are Christian Arabs and they refer to God as Allah.

In Buddhism we are taught that if we walk around thinking “I am Buddhist”, we have missed the point. Because we are more than our limited notions of identity.

As Rumi says:

Not Christian or Jew or
Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen.
Not any religion

or cultural system. I am
not from the east
or the west, not
out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not
natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all.
I do not exist,

am not an entity in this
world or the next,
did not descend from
Adam and Eve or any

origin story. My place is
the placeless, a trace
of the traceless.
Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,
have seen the two
worlds as one and
that one
call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner,
only that breath breathing

human being.
sufi mystic – jelaluddin rumi – 13th century

You people are dumb as a bag of hammers. Lie and deceive that’s your game. Ghosts and witches and talking animals and flying people that’s your style, force that on children. Anything to put cash in the basket and humanity on it’s knees. Despicable. Get an honest job.

I think you believe that the creator of all of us is the ‘Allah’ – in your language, or the GOD.

I am Indian. In our culture, we call our creator – ‘Father’. I think, so is in your culture also.

When the ‘Allah’ / ‘GOD’ is our creator, why shouldn’t we call him as our Father?

Jesus realised it to the full extent and procalimed to the world that he is the son of GOD.

In fact we all are. The only difference is whether we realise our Father and act always as his children.

Jesus acted 100% as his Father’s child. So he deserves his identity which rest of the world cannot claim always.

Regards,
Jose

The word “God” in Arabic is “Allah.”. Even Christians who speak Arabic call God “Allah.”

Point being — you are arguing about “God” being “God” seems rather silly.

If so then he can be called God. If not…is he realy the god that the Pope are talking about?
