Thoughts of an evil genius. Well, evil anyway.
To call Yahweh "Allah" is a very alien concept to me, and I have looked on in this matter with some bafflement.If Yahweh is Allah then why bother?
Probably as alien as calling Yahweh "God" is to a Malay or Arabic speaker. In our language, if Yahweh is not God, then why bother?Actually, "Allah" is closer to "the God", than simply "God", making the case even more relevant to Gordon's point.
It could be a cultural thing too. In Islamic culture there is respect for the name "Allah" Whereas "Yahweh" is seen as part of Jewish culture not Western culture.
