See how the Bible defines "GOD", when used for humans....

As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

As I was reading the Bible online (a hobby that I have for reading the Noble Quran and the Bible during my downtime), I ran into the following:

**************************************
 THE DEFINITION OF "GOD" IN THE BIBLE:
**************************************
 Ezekiel 28
 New International Version (NIV)
 
A Prophecy Against the King of Tyre
 28 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, say to the ruler of
 Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
 
“‘In the pride of your heart
     you say, “I am a god;
 I sit on the throne of a god
     in the heart of the seas.”
 But you are a mere mortal and not a god,
     though you think you are as wise as a god.
3 Are you wiser than Daniel?
     Is no secret hidden from you?
 4 By your wisdom and understanding
     you have gained wealth for yourself
 and amassed gold and silver
     in your treasuries.
 5 By your great skill in trading
     you have increased your wealth,
 and because of your wealth
     your heart has grown proud.
 
6 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
 
“‘Because you think you are wise,
     as wise as a god,

7 I am going to bring foreigners against you,
     the most ruthless of nations;
 they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom
     and pierce your shining splendor.
 8 They will bring you down to the pit,
     and you will die a violent death
     in the heart of the seas.
9 Will you then say, “I am a god,”
     in the presence of those who kill you?

 You will be but a mortal, not a god,
     in the hands of those who slay you.
 10 You will die the death of the uncircumcised
     at the hands of foreigners.
 
I have spoken, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”

Also don't forget, that the Old Testament also called the Jews "Gods, Sons of the Most High": http://www.answering-christianity.com/godtitle.htm.

Feel free to share your thoughts dear brothers and sisters.  The Bible clearly uses the "God" and "Son" titles loosely.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
