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€

A new work on Paulโ€™s understanding of Jesus within Judaism draws some surprising conclusions โ€” Blogging Theology

Historian Dr Paula Fredriksen argues that the New Testament texts have often been read as antagonistic to Jews and Judaism due to the long history of Christian anti-Judaism. Paul too has been misread. Her conviction is that the Paul of history stands entirely within Judaism. Fredriksen makes the following insightful observations about Paulโ€™s exaltedย Christologyโ€ฆ

Song of Songs 5:16 prophesied Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be peace) by name

His mouth is full of sweetness; he is Muhammad in every way. Such, O women of Jerusalem, he is my beloved, my friend…

When dealingย with the fact that a Bible passage in the Song of Songs or Shir haShirim 5:16 ืฉื™ืจ ื”ืฉื™ืจื™ื ย ื”:ื˜ื– in Hebrew whereย the wordย โ€œMachamadimโ€ย ืžึทื—ึฒืžึทื“ึดึผื™ืย is clearly shown, Christian apologists like James White in his debate with Br. Zakir Hussain titledย โ€œIs Muhammed Prophesied in the Bible?โ€ย typically respond that it cannot refer to Prophet Muhammad (p)ย based on the following arguments:

  1. The context of the whole Song of Solomon is aboutย human loveย orย ย humanย sexual desire.
  2. The word is in adjective form and can be found in other places in the Bible.
  3. The word is in plural form.

White even boldly claims that this is the weakest argument the Muslims have on finding prophet Muhammad in the Bible.


Let us have a closer look and see if this argumentย is valid.

Human sexual desire or Godโ€™s beloved man?

Evidence That Islamย Teaches That There Wasย Textual Corruption of The Christian and Jewish Scriptures โ€” Blogging Theology

“One of the most common arguments that Christian missionaries pose to the Muslims is that Islamic teachings allegedly affirm the authenticity and divine nature of the Bible that Christians follow today…

“…There seems to be a misconception amongst Christians. They think that Islam teaches that there once was an original Bible and then the Bible got corrupted. This is not what Islam teaches…

Conclusion: “…After appealing to the Qurโ€™an, authentic traditions of the Prophet, his companions, early Muslims and greatest Muslim scholars we come to the conclusion that Islam does endorse directly and indirectly the textual corruption of the Torah and Gospel. There is no other source of religious Islamic authority one can go to. The issue is clear and Christian missionaries who are sincere and are truth seekers should stop using these out dated kind of arguments.”

‘Believers’ Throwing Revelation Under the Bus (Modern Muslim 3 of 8)

UPDATED (11/05/19): The original video by Paul Bilal Williams (which used to be located HERE) raised some important points. In the part that I think was especially meaningful to me was when he talked about how Western Christians have themselves become secularised. I just wanted to extend this point to a different conclusion.

The Brand of Christianity that is NOT about Love

“‘Christianity is about love.’

“How many times do we hear Christians say Christianity is all about love?

“But, what happens when somebody Bob mistakenly thinks is a Christian, when in fact he’s a Muslim… What was Bob’s response? When a Christian comes and says, ‘Look, this is not Christianity, you know it should be about love.’:

“‘Oh you’re a weak Christian.’

“What did he mean?”
