衍宜 You are right in saying the use of Allah existed before Islam. It was the principal idol out of 360 idols. Islam was born of idolatory. All because christians used it in the past and even now, doesn't mean it's right.Why would you prefer using the name Allah if you have another choice? Muslims claim they worship the same God as the Jews and Christians( except our concept is wrong) by using the name Allah you may just be seen as agreeing with them. I pray the Holy Spirit will convict your heart and God will give Arabic christians another word for God and the courage to use it. I live in a muslim country and christians converts here still struggle with a lifelong habit and fear of offending the majority of muslims. Most of all, they are young in faith and walk yet some immediately change by the power of the Holy Spirit. Even as a christian I have to guard my mind and lips daily. I pray you will seek God for yourself and your country on this matter. http://www.bible.ca/islam/islam-allah-pre-islamic-origin.htm

Beyond the intellectual, historical, cultural & possible human errors of past generations.. the names of God reveal who He is. He demonstrated His love and power by the death and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ, given for our salvation. The name(s) of God is more than a linguistic or semantic issue, it describes His character/attributes. For one, Allah of the Kuran does not have a son and does not describe the same God of the bible. Allah is not just arabic for God but rather it is the name of 'the god' in Islam. I understand the social and cultural pressures of living in a Muslim country can lead some to what is comfortable and convenient. It's the wrong battlefield.It is wise to saperate or fall into syncretism and deception.The names of the gods of other religions is not my God. As for me, the names of foreign gods will not be on my lips.

i understand we should not cast pearls before swine but i also think it is worth speaking to people if it makes them think about what is right, i can but try, but i understand that i should not waiste too much of my time. If it does not work then i will walk away especially if i put myself in danger but at what point do we draw the line or simply do not bother to speak the truth. I pray that God guides me and puts a stop to what im doing if it is wrong and use my initiative at the same time but the the answers are not always clear.

Ruth Fiction you know the truth I am not going to keep casting pearls so get a KJV bible and ask the Holy Ghost to reveal it to you

so your right but judgement should be taken with great care and i suppose i am not used to meeting many that do judge with great care i have had much stigma like so many others

Robert Roop Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.” john 7, 2:4

sorry didn't put the notes in caps but they are in the parenthesis

Ruth Fiction That's why it is important to understand why other than KJV translation is watered down. Here is the 1611 King James Translation Matthew 7:1-5 my expository notes are in parenthesis and in all caps. 1 Iudge not, that ye be not iudged. (basically saying if you do not want to be judged don't judge others; was also spoken to the pharisees because of what took place previously in Matthew chpt 6) 2 For with what iudgment ye iudge, yee shall be iudged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you againe. (Again this is showing us it is ok to judge other Christians. How ever we must judge in love; a lot of Christians attach condemnation to judging which is far from what true judging is; it is correcting, to make right. Why wouldn't we as Christians want to be held accountable ; to be judged. But if we do judge we will be judged in the same manner as we have.) 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers eye, but considerest not the beame that is in thine owne eye? (For the Christian this is telling us to look into ourselves and make our paths straight before we can help other to correct their paths; again this was being directed to the pharisees) 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let mee pull out the mote out of thine eye, and beholde, a beame is in thine owne eye? (Redundant notes from above; This is also illustrating that we as Christians can't help another bother or sister with anything that they are struggling with if you are struggling with the same thing yourself; Basically put it would be hypocrisy.) 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beame out of thine owne eye: and then shalt thou see clearely to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye. (Notes redundant from verse 3 and 4; this whole lesson was mostly aimed at the pharisees seeming how that all the man made laws , Decalog, wasn't even given by God but by man to put lessors in submission and under a fearful tyrannical rule of the upper classes i.e. Pharisees, Sadducees etc etc. So you see Ruth without proper exposition and with a Bible that is far from being infallible you will always get a doctrine that isn't what God has in place for us as Christians.

Robert Roop Mat 7 1:5 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

Ruth Fiction ummm What version of the Holy Bible are you reading? It doesn't say judging isn't up to us. It does, how ever say that if we are going to judge you might want to be careful in how you judge. The bible also calls us to judge our fellow Christians, if they claim to be Christians.

Jaime L. Alviola Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Don't let them get to you brother, I too know how frustrating it can be to talk to those that know the truth and still refuse to hear it that's why Jesus gave us these words.

衍宜 You also understand the Koran also teaches Muslims to do anything they can to convert the infidel even if it means having to lie to them.......I have a concordance and no where do I find the etymology of Hebrew roots pointing to anything close to the word "allah". Not even in the Greek. How ever we do find Yahweh and Yeshuah etymological roots in both the Hebrew and Greek.

Deuteronomy 13 1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether yes love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.4 Yes shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and yes shall serve him, and cleave unto him.5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the Lord thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.s.

Allen Warren, Arabic Christians accept Allah as Father but Muslims are forbidden in the Quran to call Allah their Father. You will never find Allah mentioned as Father in the Quran and they are told not to call him Father.

I have read the whole Quran twice, two different English versions. The truth is, the Quran contradicts itself. In one place we just heard Surah 4:157 says that Jesus did not die but later we read in the same Quran in Surah 19:33 Jesus saying, "Blessed be the day that I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I will rise again." See, even there own Quran can not completely deny the truth.

That is more of a reason why i have to stand firm for what i believe in because a muslim man can marry a christian lady but she has to convert to be a muslim. The Koran states that you should look after the poor and it is preferable to have one wife but you can have up to 4 but you find that the reason why some men marry more wives is because they have been left fatherless for their chidren and cannot support them. some muslims do not have sexual relations with them they are just supporting them.I understand honour killings as many as 1000 women have been killed in the last year in Pakistan but this is more of the reason why we need to raise awareness, filter the system and try and understand their cultures, beliefs and backgrounds and it is worth the trouble in my eyes to try and form relations
