Muslims Who Follow Jesus

I've lived with and near Muslims since 1983. If you ask any Muslim, "Do you believe in Jesus?" 100 percent will say yes. Some will quickly qualify that "yes" with something like, "We believe in all the prophets." And others will note some of Jesus' great attributes found in the Quran -- he was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, worked miracles, called the Word of God and other impressive things. I have found many who will speak in hushed tones out of their great respect of this prophet and messiah -- Jesus Christ.

Some Muslims will even say they "follow Jesus." They follow his way, or his teachings or his path. There are ample scriptures in the Quran about "the straight path" and if followed carefully it's notable that they often refer to the way of Jesus of Nazareth.

One such Muslim is my friend Mo Sabri. Mo is a Pakistani-American who studies pre-medicine at university in Tennessee. He's written and performed the following song clearly entitled "I Believe in Jesus."

The revelation of The Urantia Book does not favor one religion over another...devotion to God and love of the Master can be practiced from many religious platforms. What is needed is a unity of vision - of ideals. This article reminds me of something that Jesus said about unity vs uniformity:

141:5.1 One of the most eventful of all the evening conferences at Amathus, was the session having to do with the discussion of spiritual unity. James Zebedee had asked, “Master, how shall we learn to see alike and thereby enjoy more harmony among ourselves?” When Jesus heard this question, he was stirred within his spirit, so much so that he replied: “James, James, when did I teach you that you should all see alike? I have come into the world to proclaim spiritual liberty to the end that mortals may be empowered to live individual lives of originality and freedom before God. I do not desire that social harmony and fraternal peace shall be purchased by the sacrifice of free personality and spiritual originality. What I require of you, my apostles, is spirit unityand that you can experience in the joy of your united dedication to the wholehearted doing of the will of my Father in heaven. You do not have to see alike or feel alike or even think alike in order spiritually to be alike. Spiritual unity is derived from the consciousness that each of you is indwelt, and increasingly dominated, by the spirit gift of the heavenly Father. Your apostolic harmony must grow out of the fact that the spirit hope of each of you is identical in origin, nature, and destiny.
