Wrong again ... as usual ...

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: By your own logic, Christians are just as guilty.

In contrast, allow me to counter that YHVH, which had been translated into Greek Κυριος, Latin Dominus, and English "Lord" was translated into Syriac by early Christians as the word "Rabb". That exact same word is also prominently found both in Arabic bibles as well as the Qur'an.

Adonai = Kurios = Dominus = Khoda = Rabb = LORD

YHVH has never been 'translated' as any of the above - the Jews 'substituted' Adonai for YHVH so they would not inadvertantly use YHVH inappropriately.

You are wrong again ... as usual ...
