I have seen the literal interpretation become a stumbling block to evangelism. Other religions may also teach that their path is the one exclusive route towards truth. It is not particularly helpful to point at them and say "You are going to h..." because they point right back at us and say the same thing for our belief in the Holy Trinity is blasphemy to some. The literal exclusivist track may lead to this unchristian condemnation. If you take an exclusivist attitude towards others, you may sabotage the message of Christ, "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." (John 3:17). As a Christian, I have the assurance that Jesus lives and is guiding me, other religions and the non-religious lack this particular assurance. Their paths are different, most of their simple pewsters have not studied the Gospels (nor have most of us studied their scriptures). Some have their own exclusivity rules, and would kill any members becoming Christian. Others are more tolerant as in the notion that the world's religions are like rivers, they all eventually will take you to the same ocean.
We believe in one God, one ocean, but the question is this, is there more than one way to the Father? Personally, I have found the Way through Jesus. Now, how do I share it with someone who has found another way? Is the Episcopal way the way for you? Why not become a Baptist? Some don't think we are on the path, but come to a similar conclusion
"In conclusion the intelligent reader is reminded that in a little while (Job 16:22) the name by which persons are known here will be a small matter; the supreme issue will be their standing before the Lord. No tradition, or sentiment, or human creed will then avail; but the Word of God will be the test of faith and character (John 12:48). Search the Scriptures. Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life (1 Tim. 4:16; 6:12)."
