Well, if you don't mind a healthy discussion, neither do I.

You state a belief common to a tiny minority of Christendom. I point that out. That is fact.

Whatever the size of group, it doesn't make that group correct. In fact, our Lord Jesus stated:

I would not set my store on the fact that billions and billions of people who believe one way are "right". Our Lord Jesus stated that the way is hard to find and few find it.

So perhaps it may be best to be in a tiny minority if it lead to eternal life. And, that to, is a fact.

“So perhaps it may be best to be in a tiny minority if it lead to eternal life.”

And yet, from the 1st Century the most respected teachers, preachers and successors of the Apostles disagree with that tiny, fringe teaching. To embrace error is not a path to eternal life.

Magnificat anima mea Dominum

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,
my soul shall exult in my God;
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Isaiah 61:10

Magnificat anima mea Dominum!
Yes, magnify the Lord, O my soul,
Yes my soul magnifies you, O my Lord,
for the glory of being touched by divine Fire,
touched only because of your love,
an amazing thing.
Magnificat anima mea Dominum!
O let my soul magnify you, O Lord,
For you dress me in dazzling white.
How precious the garment,
the robe of Your salvation,
of infinite value,
purchased by a price
no mere man could ever pay,
the threads spun in the pain,
and grief,
and blood,
woven in your death,
fulled in the fire
of Your glorious ressurection,
O Son of Man,
O Son of God,
O Lord who emptied himself
To call us home
just for love.
Magnificat anima mea Dominum!

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood.

“I Jesus have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.”

The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let him who hears say, “Come.” And let him who is thirsty come, let him who desires take the water of life without price.

Revelation 22:12-17
