Prophet Muhammad ﷺ specifically prohibited shaving any part of one’s child’s head and leaving the rest unshaven. According to scholars, this prohibition applies to adults too. > Imam Birgivi mentions that the prohibition is due to the ugliness of such a look, and that it is based on the Prophet’s ﷺ love for balance, since partial shaving is a type of injustice to the head, leaving some of it covered and the rest bare. In that sense, it resembles the prophetic discouragement of wearing only one shoe.

As I said, you need to believe that Jesus is the Christ, whose coming as the Messiah was prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament, and chronicled in the New Testament to be a Christian. I know that Muslims believe that Jesus (ʿĪsā) was a prophet and messenger of Allah, but not the prophesied Messiah.

I assume you’re a Christian who doesn’t view other Christian denominations as actually Christian? A Christian is someone who believes that Jesus is the Christ, whose coming as the Messiah was prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament, and chronicled in the New Testament.

Distributism isn’t Third Positionist. Third Positionism tends to syncretise reactionary right-wing cultural views and radical left-wing economic views. One of the Third Position’s precursors was Strasserism.
