Worshiping Jesus in the Mosque?

Here is an article from the January/February 2013 issue of Christianity Today, Worshiping Jesus in the Mosque, about Muslims who have come to faith in Isa al Masih (Jesus the Messiah), but remain Muslims. They find that the culture of the traditional church is too alien to them. So,though they are Christian in theology, embracing Jesus as the Messiah, Savior and Lord, they remain Muslim in culture, "worshiping Jesus in the mosque," as the title of the article says. Very interesting. I would like to see more about this.

CT featured additional articles along the same lines:

Jeff - I think it also might be due to avoiding certain alienation or persecution from family, as well as being able to live as Christ in the Muslim community. I am sure plenty will argue that they shouldn't be afraid of alienation or persecution. And I understand. But we, in the west, can't really relate.

I wonder if these kinds of articles by CT will actually be somewhat counter-constructive for our brothers & sister within a Muslim context?
