Arabic speaking Christians all use the word "Allah" to denote the personage we refer to in English as "God".

Does anyone know what the problem here is?

How about if we call Allah "Pedobear"? It's far closer to the truth.

If one is speaking English, one calls God “God”; if one is speaking German, “Gott”; French, “Dieu”; Greek, “’o theos”;. . . Arabic, “Allah”.

Unless he is proposing we converse in Arabic, the bishop’s suggestion is blasphemy. Why? Because it is a Mohammedan conceit that the Arabic word for God is the name of God. To call God “Allah” when speaking any language but Arabic accepts false Mohammedan conception of God.

That said, Arabic speaking Christians call God “Allah” (elided from Al ilah, meaning literally “the god”, Arabic like Greek indicating the uniquely existing God by using the definite article, rather than capitalizing), but only when speaking Arabic, when they speak English they call Him “God”; German “Gott”;. . . because Christians do not believe the lie that the Arabic word for God is the proper name of God.

Fail.

The Manson Family's "God" is Charlie.

Is that just a linguistic transliteration?

Is a Mexican serial killer named "Jesus" the Hebrew Messiah?

He may be Dutch but he ain't no Christian. God told us His name in the Gospel, and "allah" isn't it.Nobody but a pigf*ing dog calls the Lord God of Hosts by the dogcrap name of "Allah."

You do know that Orthodox Christians in the Middle East were calling God "Allah" since before Islam existed right? Mizrahi Jews also say Allah.

"But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!

As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. " - Galatians 1:8-10

In my book, the problem is that the entity that spoke to Mohammed, was not God. 'Twas Satan who whispered his lies to that fool, calling himself God. Mohammed was but a useful idiot in a larger scheme.

Muslims believe that Allah is God but that is false. The god of Islam is not "the personage we refer to in English as 'God'."

Just my personal opinion.

Now, now. I never saw a dog so low that it would do anything like that to a pig and my dogs, at least, would not look to the Lord and call him Allah. I do have a special treat for the Bishop, should I ever meet the fornincating scum.

That's fine but what you believe is irrelevant. Mohammad didn't speak to any entity at all. About 99% of the story was invented in Damascus after the Arabs from Mecca conquered it. Mohammad, whoever he was, was long dead by that time.

A Christian handbook for converting Arabs has been discovered in the text of the Koran ~ it's in Aramaic.

We call him HaShem, which is Hebrew for ‘the Name’ as a sign of respect for His Name. We are not to be casual with that name, or His Torah. His Torah stands forever. We are to safeguard both.

Most Christians in the West aren’t aware that there are arabic speaking Catholic and Orthodox Christians and Jews in the East, muchless that they were calling God “Allah” before the Muslems.

To my understanding it’s like getting mad at German Christians because they and German pagans both use the word “Gott”.

Freegards

Jesus said. “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6

There aren’t “many paths” to God. Allah is a false god, an idol. Those who follow Allah and reject Christ’s divinity will perish for all eternity. (John 14:6)

Wrong. The one supreme being is God. All others are false. Allah is Satan.

Works for me. I knew the “other” name was special, but didn’t know what to use. I like it—HaShem. The Name-I Am-HaShem.

Didn’t mean to be disrespectful, though.

Yes. We are not Arab.

Secondly, Islamic apologists would spin it as a concession or least an acknowledgement that the God of Islam is on par with the God of the Bible, the great I AM.

1) You are never going to get us to call the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob “Allah.”

2) What is the purpose in trying to get us to?

3) Do you think they are going to refer to Allah as Jesus of Nazareth?

Get real.

To All - Looks like in many posts here we have three seperate discussions going on: 1. Theology   2. Language   3. History

We won't resolve this until we blend these three subjects. A few posts are trying.
