Was Jesus Really A Muslim?

 

 

Sure Islam started some 700 years after Jesus was alive and sure this claim is essentially no different than saying Jesus was, I don’t know, an American, but hey, facts are just inconvenient annoyances that get in the way of real truth!
 

CHRISTIAN PROF SAYS JESUS WAS MUSLIM

By Bob Unruh, WND.com

A professor at an Iowa college says as a Christian, he has to say that Jesus was a Muslim.

Ignoring the historical timeline in which Jesus taught some 2,000 years ago in the Middle East and the advent of Islam is dated six centuries later, after Christianity had impacted much of the known globe, Robert F. Shedinger, who wrote “Was Jesus a Muslim?” said his research convinced him of Jesus as aligning in thought with Islam.

In a video report that was uncovered by CampusReform.org, the professor is interviewed by In The Community television in Raleigh, N.C.,

Shedinger said the issue arose when a Muslim student challenged his teaching about Islam, and he rethought not only Islam, but all of religion.

He came to perceive Islam as a social justice system instead of a religion, and found that he thought the same about Jesus.

“I had to rethink what Islam is,” Shedinger said in the interview. “I came to the conclusion that it was a social justice movement and I think that’s who Jesus was in the first century so I conclude Jesus is more like a Muslim.”

    No, Jesus was an Independent Fundamental Baptist. He was also white,loved to serve grape juice at weddings,spoke the king’s English and had very short hair!

    The Koran says that Jesus escaped crucifixion. How, you may ask, does it know this? It was written 600 years from the event in question, after all.

    This is no objection. You see, the Koran could have been written a million years later and it wouldn’t matter: it’s divinely inspired by the one true God. It is therefore perfect in every word.

    That’s what I’d imagine a Muslim saying. Sacred scripture has spoken. End of story.

    Christians say the same thing, but with a different book.

    Just for the record, in the first paragraph of Shedinger’s introduction he states, “Obviously, since Islam developed in seventh-century Arabia, hundreds of years after Jesus lived, it is chronologically impossible tor Jesus to have been a Muslim.”

    So, yeah, he’s already acknowledged your point.
