    Can someone please explain why he's so afraid of offending Muslims? He sure offends Christians every chance he gets. http://mrctv.org/blog/

    He doesn't want to take any chances and offend his god Allah. And he offends Christians by claiming he is one.

    Allah in Arabic and in some African languages means God. So an Arab Christian and some African Christians will say Allah when they are talking about their Christian God.

    Now aren't you the Dumb one, acting like you don't know what it was a reference to. The JW's use Jehovah, which is a name that I have heard Christians using. So using your logic, the JW's are true christians also. How many religions of the world use the name "God", are they all christians brothers. Only the pope comes up with garbage like that....Are you the pope??????????

    Your rudeness is noted and assumed to stem from you ignorance of the word Allah. I forgive you rudeness.

    I simply wanted people to know that the word Allah is not restricted to the god [note little g] in whom Muslims believe.

    Likewise in Chinese if a Chinese Christian said Tianzhu would be talking about the same God you and worship. If they were Buddhist they might used the same word, Tianzhu, but they would not be talking about the same God as you and I.

    Also you logic is faulty. Just because a person uses the word Jehovah does not mean they are Christian. And, just because an Arab Christian uses the word Allah for God does not mean they are not Christian.

    From your previous posts I had thought you were more knowledgeable then you have showed in this thread.

    Below is more for your enlightenment.


    From wikipedia

    Allah (English pronunciation: /ˈælə/, /ˈɑːlə/ or /əlˈlɑː/;[1][2] Arabic: الله‎ Allāh, IPA: [ʔalˤˈlˤɑːh] ([​IMG] listen)) is the Arabic word for God (al ilāh, literally "the God"), referring to the God in Abrahamic religions.[3][4][5] The word has cognates in other Semitic languages, including Elahin Aramaic, ʾĒl in Canaanite and Elohim in Hebrew.[6][7]

    It is now mainly used by Muslims to refer to God in Islam,[8] but has been also used by Arab Christians since pre-Islamic times.[9] It is also often, albeit not exclusively, used by Bábists,Bahá'ís, Indonesian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews.[6][10][11] Christians and Sikhsin West Malaysia also use and have used the word to refer to God. This has caused political and legal controversies there as the law in West Malaysia prohibits non-Islamic uses of the word.[12][13][14][15]

    Rudeness, you should have seen what I wrote and deleted... LOL

    My frustrations with trying to post on here may have gotten to me. I will stand by what I said for the most part, but apologize for the rude part of it.

    Were Christians likewise offended by Mitt Romney claiming to be a Christian?

    That's the nice thing about Democrats--they don't even pretend to be Christians anymore. Obama was a member of a black liberation theology cult. Bernie is Jewish.

    There is a difference between you and me. I know enough to know I don't know. I also know enough to know when people like you do not know and are proud of not knowing and do not want to learn as it might force them to change their minds.

    They are Republicans who are pretending to be Christians, based on their works I have observed.
