It's not about me ...

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: A fine thesis- up to a point

Exo 20: 3 "You shall have no other gods before me."

Exo 20: 7 "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

Exo 23: 13 "Be careful to do everything I have said to you. Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.

zzaazzeefrazzee, It is not I who says the Jews (and Christians) should not use the NAMES of other gods in reference to the ALMIGHTY ... it is the ALMIGHTY Himself.

I have clearly expressed, in other posts of this thread, that the use of Allah in arabic translations of the OT & NT is pure deception (or absolute ignorance) on the part of the translator. SHAME ON THEM - MAY THE ALMIGHTY FORGIVE THEM. Should all copies of these translations be destroyed - no - just the NAME Allah should be blotted out and the word ilah put in its place.

And, oh yes, (IMO) arabic (as a language) has been 'hi-jacked' by islam - arabic has been completely islamasized. Arabic speaking Jews and Christians should eschew the use of arabic when they speak of matters of religion - so they do not inadverdently transgress Exo 23:13.
