in response to reader comment: 'Allah,' Is Not the God of the Bible

Like Deborah, Balan is ABSOLUTELY right. But the problem is that a lot of work has to be done to PERFECTLY avoid the risk of recognising pagan deity. For instance, even the word "God" is logically of pagan origin. So, while we may use the word "God" in ordinary communication, we may not use it in our spiritual activities. Similarly, we should:

*Observe the Saturday Sabbath (which God says we must observe FOREVER anyway) instead of Sunday Sabbath, which is evidently of Roman pagan origin;

*Oberve the Passover etc instead of Christmas and Easter that are of Roman pagan origin;

*Observe the eternal aspects of Mosaic Law that distinguish beleivers from ordinary gentiles who are inspired by pagan experiences;

*Refer to Jesus Christ as Yashu'ah Mashi'ah and

*Refer to Church as Beth-El

It is very pleasing that there are many Christian scholars that have been calling for a return to original (Biblical) Christianity as against the Western Christianity (or Westianity actually) that is being practiced as a religion brought by Christ. Biblical (Semitic) Christianity would dignify the Christendom much more than the current lustful Western liberty called Christianity. If we go back to our original ways, many people will accept Jesus as their savoir as they will see the difference. However, as Helenistic as Christianity is, it is still much better than any other religion in the World.
