Another name for Allah / Jehovah is God of War!

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Reeba (United States), May 8, 2009 at 16:29

Allah and Jehovah the same? I think they are. According to Muslims, Allah was the god of Abraham. Jews and Christians believe Jehovah was the god of Abraham. So isn't it the same entity known in different names? For example, Jesus is the English name and Yeshua is his hebrew name. Same person, different names. Allah / Jehovah is a living mini god. Another appropriate name is God of war! In Bible Jehovah is mentioned as the god of military and he likes the smell of blood. He directs blood baths, has no problem with killing innocents including animals in the name of war. So is Allah. He directs war and asks his followers to kill all infidels. Muslims, Jews and Christians say Allah /Jehovah ismercifyul. Yes, but only to those loyal to him! The most important criteria for loyalty is do not serve other gods. This god of war needs wars to survive. So he laid out the best plans. Divide his followers to 3 groups. Give them seperate laws and make them hate each other. Then there will be no shortage for wars as we see today.

Jehovah/Allah learnt from experience. The great greek gods and powerful ancient gods died when civilizations changed or advanced. Gods die when man do not remember them or worship them. Greek gods were so powerful that men sacrified their children to them. The relationship between Alla/Jehovah and humans is symbiotic. God of war needs humans to keep him alive and most humans needs a god for spiritual satisfaction. But what happened when man stopped worshipping gods? They became mythological figures. Jehovah/Allah has figured this out. If one group fails, the other group will be there as his followers. Should we fall for this conspiracy? Then the question is who is the true god. I believe there is a real god who created this universe and sustains it. This god doesn't need praises or worship or sacrifices from any creature he created. He is the almighty! He is god of peace because he wants his creation to survive! I believe Jesus is referring to this god when he said "father".

Nowhere in the new testament Jesus refers god as Jehovah or god of Abraham. Trinity was coined by christian leaders in later centuaries.jesus said god is within you and around you and it is foolish to wait for heaven as heaven is already here. Unfortunately Jesus's real teachings are not in the bible but you will see it in gospels written by Philip, Thomas and Mary Magdalene who are people who knew Jesus firsthand and learnt from him. The god Jesus depicts is an entirely different god, who is compassionate, loving regardless of your religious affiliation. Jehovah/Allah cannot be that god. Jesus had no rules on how to worship this god because this god doesn't need worship or sacrifices. It was Paul who had never even seen Jesus who created rules for christianity.

The true god is in all of us but we are ignorant of his presence. We have immense potentials but do not know how to turn it on. It is like giving a computer to a primitive man. We have evolved so much from cave men to this far. In coming centuries we will learn to tap into our own inner power which will make us mini gods. That is what Jehovah/Allah is afraid of. The gods, dieties etc whom we worship today are such entities who found the inner strength and maximized their power. Even some humans learnt to tap the inner power. They can perform telepathy, teleportation, miracles etc. The god of war doesn't want us to communicate with the god within us. May that is a good thing. When humans become minigods, their rivalry and thirst for power will lead to the extinction of all!
