Jesus Was A Muslim- Claims Christian College Professor

There's a Christian professor who teaches Islamic Studies who just wrote a book "Was Jesus A Muslim?"

Yep, believe it or not, Robert F Shedinger is an Associate Professor of Religion at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa who believes that Jesus was more into "social justice" than spirituality, and Islam is more a "social justice movement" than a religion, so therefore Jesus must have been a Muslim. Using his logic, since a banana is yellow and so is a sunflower, does that make a banana a sunflower?

Did he somehow miss the part about Christianity pre-dating Islam (by a very long time) during his  M.Div. studies at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary or his Ph.D. studies at Temple University?

In Shedinger's own words:

“I came to the conclusion that [Islam] 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.”

What a fool and a dupe. And this man teaches college?

He's not the only one, however, who believes that Jesus was a Muslim. So does Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, but Farrakhan also believes he was black.

Only someone with a college degree could come up with an idea so ludicrous. There are many nonsensical notions which have had their birth on college campuses.

Ha... so very true. Sad thing is these people are teaching our kids.
