If we ignore whether he was a good man or not, should we declare Mohammed to be a prophet?

The Church I have been attending up until very recently, has been continuing on a downward spiral of heresy. We have been engaging a lot in interfaith work - something which I have gone on record as saying that I have no objection to interfaith work and providing a place of welcome, however I am mindful that we have a tendency to overlook people in our own flock who need welcome and support. We fail to properly support our neighbour.

The Church I belong to think nothing of insulting Donald Trump and calling him a a narcissist, a mysoginist etc - never anything good out of their mouths. Then they claim that although Mohammed wasn't perfect, he showed extraordinary gifts which were prophetic and our vicar says he has no problem calling him a prophet. He says he does this to respect his Muslim friends. Though presumably his Muslim friends wouldn't show him respect and call him the son of God. Then he questions why I say he makes exceptions to explicitly support the Islamic community instead of supporting his own Christian community and doesn't see the total contradiction.

Forgetting whether Mohammed was a great man or not (I know what I believe), I still wouldn't call him a prophet. I believe he was erroneous in many areas, but also as a Christian, who believe fully in the life death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as him being the son of God, there's no way Mohammed could possibly be a Prophet.

Now I believe that Muslims are secure enough for me to call Jesus the Son of God and say that I don't think Mohammed is a prophet. But if they want to believe that, then that's up to them. That's fine. You follow God the way you feel you should, the way you believe he has been revealed to you. I happen to think they're wrong.

Technically, Mohammed is (or was) a prophet - it's just that Christians believe him to be a false prophet.

Im happy to accept that he is a prophet for Islam, but that doesn't mean I have to accept him as a Prophet, and technically, he's completely wrong about so much stuff that his prophet credentials are largely invalidated.
