Christianity use Allah before Islam so it was Islam who mock identity of "Loving" Allah to become "T3rror" Allah.

You wrong totally wrong. IF all prophets never use the word "Allah", why we all still use the word "God"? Why not use the word like "Ellohim, Abba, Eli, and so on"... This misconception of the name of God is deceitful. Name for God was not "name" like we calling someone name. Nobody created God so literally nobody know the God Name. Israeli/Jews know that angel cant lie..so Israeli / Jews often asked someone name when they meet others. When Moses asked who is God name? God answered him "I AM is I AM" aka JHVH. so when people call God name? no body call God real name but Jesus call God as "Abba- Father in Heaven".

Name in old Jews itself is not a "name" like worldly name but it is a reference of identity. like we call Schumacher which literally mean a shoe maker. Father as God is how Jesus referencing God identity and how God love Israel. So I believe its no problem when Christianity referencing the word "God" or "Allah" as another identity of God. But Yes referencing Christianity "Allah" to Islamic "Allah" is somehow make different identity. Allah in Christianity is compassion, Loving, caring, and forgiveness. While Allah which is use by Islam referencing the identity of T3rror and Non forgiveness. I am not sure Christianity in Arabs want to use Allah. Why they didnt use Baal or Agni to reference to God? I believe far before pagan, Allah is the word used by "Ishmaelites" to refer to El roy (Elohim). I am sure Christianity in Arabs and Middle East use "Allah" word far before Islam. Means it was (and it is) Islam who put deity link to the holiness of "Allah" word. Christianity in Middle East and Malaysia must be allowed to use Allah as reference to God.
