Sample text

6 Its counterpart in Islam would be the ummah, the community of Muslims, or the true ummah, those truly expressing God’s rule. The New Testament understanding of the church, however, did not have the same political connotations that the ummah developed very early. Since the gospel according to Matthew traces the theme of the kingdom of God (or heaven) in the life of Jesus, we shall follow the road Jesus traveled in this gospel and make comparisons with Muhammad’s path as he pursued the similar goal of God’s rule.

The group baptized one another on the confession of faith. They believed that baptism was a sign of conversion and new birth; it was a public testimony of a person’s decision to believe in and follow Christ. A commitment to adult baptism meant that the state could not determine a person’s faith. In that act the Anabaptists were planting the seeds that would transform Europe and eventually much of the world—a person is free to decide her faith. The implications were astounding. Church and state needed to be separate.

Muhammad chose to rule in God’s name rather than suffer and so made a flight (hijrah) from Mecca to Medina with his followers. He used an invitation to be an umpire between the tribes there to build a power base. Jesus took the other route of suffering in God’s name rather than ruling in an earthly sense. He rejected those who wanted to make him a king after the feeding of the 5,000 and instead “set his face to go to Jerusalem” knowing it would mean his suffering and death. Muhammad chose the military-political route while Jesus rejected it by telling Pilate that his kingdom was not of this world and that, if it were, his disciples would fight.
