The Muslims that you have been talking with.. do you acknowledge their faith, their religion?
More than a few times I've prayed with my Muslim friends, and I tend to say "God, I believe that every man in this room wants to please you. We all also believe that there is one straight path to pleasing you. Please guide us to that straight path, so that one day we can all as one walk together in faith."
Now of course as I'm praying it...I believe if he answers that, we will all be Christian...and they believe if he answers that, we will all be Muslim. BUT, assuming ONE of us is right (cuz we could both be wrong) and God answers that prayer, somebody is going to be surprised. We just disagree on who that somebody will likely be.
So that's how I acknowledge their faith and they acknowledge mine. We all believe the other is pursuing pleasing God with all of their heart.
Oh, and as soon as that prayer is done, we go about being friends...playing some FIFA together on the PS5 or eating or working together on something. Example: the Festival of Nations, a celebration of cultural diversity, is coming up here in St. Louis in a couple weeks, and my Syrian friend has asked for me to find him help to run his food booth. So his booth will LIKELY be physically put together through tent and table donations from local churches and will be manned by my family and other Christians who love him and his family.
When we arent discussing our faiths...we are being brothers.
