Wow!!! Anyone knowing any Bible at all knows this applies to adherents as well as non adherents. But many ...even those who claim Belief...get it backwards. For Believers on meat and not milk..know that they deserve hell and damnation as well as anyone..and are not guaranteed that they will go to Salvation. Their Salvation is up to the Lord..not to them.
Interesting to me to see someone of logic and reason get it so wrong when they have obviously read more of the Word than many on these threads and specialize in trying to use/misuse it on others in confusion.
Um, where did I say that adherents would definitely not go to hell?
I didn't, so before you claim an error on my part you should read and think about what I actually wrote
While it is possible that an adherent may go to hell, it is clear that a non-adherent, according to the Bible, stands no chance, so it is a statement that you shall believe or face the consequences - a very good tactic for getting people on board.

"The Word" is spread through the Holy Spirit putting a good conscience towards God into a individual....to where they search out more of "The Word". Also they are brought before people who can teach them in process of time about " The Word" and how it applies in our daily lives.
I never said there was an instruction to spread the word through force. Do you have reading difficulties?
Force and intimidation has certainly been a part of the history of the major religions of today.

This as compared to planting ones children in front of a television and movie screen many many hours a day ..or video games. A public school education. What religion is this one???The religion of the flesh?? For it is obviously a very devout belief system since it is so prevalent.
Brainwashing is brainwashing, regardless of what we may compare it to - nice try at dodging the issue though. Noted.
