Can a person be a Christian Muslim?

In Matthew 10:34-39 Jesus said, "Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person's enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it."

Nevertheless, this video reveals a new, very influential trend in missions:

On the surface, this doesn't look good. To make a final determination, one would have to see if these people professing Christ while also claiming to be Muslims will actually persevere. Can they continue to say "Allahu Akbar" while also saying "Jesus is Lord"? One of them has to rise and the other fall in their lives.

Are some of them truly converted and only confusing their cultural Islam with the religion itself? If so, I believe those people will be drawn by Christ (and probably by persecution) further away from cultural Islam. But persecution will reveal their true colors. Will they wither, or will they bear fruit?
