We are defined by our faith, and the works produced from that faith, not just a few definitions and explanations that seem cohesive to some. If they try to parallel a few similarities that exist with Muslims they should be able to do the same with Jehovah Witnesses, Mormon, Christian Science, Worldwide Church of God, Pentecostal Oneness and others. That is a fruitless effort and compromise on our part. We know what they believe and should have no part of darkness.

I think the church truly needs a lesson from Joshua 22 on how to react to things we hear other Christians are saying or doing. A few tribes build an altar and all of Israel is ready to slaughter them. They even asked, "What is this breach of faith that you have committed against the God of Israel in turning away this day from following the LORD by building yourselves an altar this day in rebellion against the LORD?" (Joshua 22:16). The very reason they built the altar was in case some later descendants might argue and say to these few tribes, "You have no portion in the LORD." When the priests and chiefs took a minute to hear Reuben, Gad, and Manasseh's side of the story, "it was good in their eyes."

Perhaps Paul's warning in Titus is also needed:

But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
(Titus 3:9-11 ESV)
