Evidence and Proof of Christianity?

Bassam Zawadi said on fb @24.12.19:

“William Lane Craig said:

โ€œI am not saying that where there’s a lack of information you can make a leap of faith. Believing on the basis of the witness of the Holy Spirit is a rational decision โ€“ it is not a leap of faith. We have another source of warrant for our Christian beliefs that makes that belief rational. So I’m not advocating a leap of faith. Now, I disagree heartily with this nonchalant stance of the Christian apologist who says, ๐ˆ ๐š๐ฆ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ญ๐จ ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž ๐ฆ๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ข๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ž๐ฏ๐ข๐๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐๐ข๐œ๐ญ๐ฌ ๐ข๐ญ. ๐“๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ฆ๐š๐ค๐ž๐ฌ ๐ฆ๐ž ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ฆ๐›๐ฅ๐ž. ๐“๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ฌ๐š๐ฒ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ˆ ๐š๐ฆ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ญ๐จ ๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐จ๐ฎ๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐‚๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฆ๐ข๐ญ ๐š๐ฉ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ฌ๐ฒ ๐ข๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ž๐ฏ๐ข๐๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ˆ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฌ๐ก๐จ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ง ๐š๐ ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ฌ๐ญ ๐‚๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐š๐ง๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ.

Never would you be justified in renouncing Christ and outraging the Holy Spirit of grace that is within you by committing apostasy.โ€

English Girls Wearing ‘Hijab’ 100 Years Ago

Professor Venessa Toulmin is a cultural historian. In this video she makes an interesting observation about a correlation between ‘respectable’ forms of ettiquette in Edwardian midlands and its similarity to the Muslim practice of Hijab both united in upholding a conservative, traditional and I would add a ‘normative’ notion of modesty in the Abrahamic part of the world.

This has been evidenced by rare footage, that is practically lost to/lost on contemporary popular culture and its populace, whose direction is being led by market interests.
