I was thinking about the boy who claims he saw heaven, and wondered if it would be more impressive had he seen Allah, and came out of that surgery with reports that leaned more toward a Muslim belief system, that he never heard anything about, prior.To me, his brain simply imagined more of the same stuff he was influenced to think.
That got me wondering, if Allah or the prophet Muhammad "revealed" himself to a christian, would they resist a relationship with him? Yes or no? Please explain your answer.
* If you are not Christian, you can exchange that denomination with your own, including atheism.
But that's just it, I have never heard of that happening. I have heard what you described (once by a close personal friend) but never Alla, Buddha, etc. Why is that? Because God is real!
Why is that? It's because it's far more common for people to "see" and give details about what they already know.
No God is any more real than any of the other Gods.

I don't think the name for God that you use is as important as the relationship you have with Him. If God told me to call him Allah, I would oblige.

The Devil has his way with dreams as well so I would not be quick to assume it was a revelation from God.
This statement makes me very curious. How would you know if the dream were something that "God" inspired, or if it was something the "Devil" created? On what would you determine this? How can you be certain of anything, then, if the Devil is up to such devious tricks? What is the litmus test that you use--or would you be skeptical of everything?

"I don't think the name for God that you use is as important as the relationship you have with Him. If God told me to call him Allah, I would oblige."
I have to agree with Scot mom. I feel the same way. I personally believe that all Gods are one God just with many diffent aspects and names(I believe the same with the Goddess) I (depending on what aspect I am needing at that moment/praying to) call the God Anubis or Cernunnos. but if He came to me and wanted me to sudenly start calling Him Allah then thats what I would call Him. just like I call the Maiden aspect of the Goddess Persephone, the Mother aspect Isis, and the Crone aspect Hecate if She came to me and told me to call her Artemis(maiden), Inanna(mother) or Inari (crone) then I would call Her that.
