Never mind. I see you are.
(Did you fry your brain on drugs ? Is THAT what you want to PM people about ?)

So, is your intent to see how many idiotic inane questions you can ask ?

You are aware that any theist that speaks Arabic believes in Allah, whether they be Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Deist etc. etc.

You are aware that Allah is Arabic for God, correct?

I did not want to assume he was speaking of Islam, because he could have been speaking about any of the above religions.

And since I do not want to be labeled as "presumptuous", I did not assume he was talking about Islam.

Especially when your possible eternity in hell depends on it. Dodgy

God has made it very clear to us what we must do if we desire to have eternal life.

We must believe in His Son Jesus.

That is clear, concise, and anyone can do it. Thus, this is about as far from jumping through hoops as I can imagine.
Bible: irrelevant
Ten Commandments: irrelevant
Murder, rape, steal, but believe in Jesus and you get eternal life.

Got it. Thumbsup

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Thanks for admitting you make up your own shit, and believe it no matter what anyone says. Do you know the definition of psychotic ? That's actually VERY VERY "non-Christian". Community authentication was the method for the determination of heresy. You really are a loony-tune.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Fucking hilarious. Little Jeremy don't know what an Abrahamic religion is. Christianity, Islam, and Judaism all worship the same God. Islam even recognizes Jesus as a Prophet. Poor little ignorant fella.

#sigh

Jesus came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

First you say "You are aware that any theist that speaks Arabic believes in Allah, whether they be Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Deist etc. etc."

Then you follow it with a total non sequitur question. (How idiotic do you think we are). If your assertions in 1 and 2 is what you think, then why would you have to follow with the question in 3.

You're blowing smoke out your ass, Germey. Get help.

Just because YOU believe in fairies doesn't mean anybody else should.

Allah is Arabic for God.

You should know this.

So in order not to be presumptuous, I simply asked for clarification from pablo about what he was asking.

Is this hard for you to comprehend sir?

Are you asking what makes the Bible the Inspired word of God and not the Quran?
