“If One Believes Salvation Is Only Available Through One’s Own Faith, How Do You Deal with People of Other Faiths?”

“All these horrific conflicts were rooted not in religion but in religious intolerance. They involved, in many cases, the aggressors ignoring the principles of love, tolerance or respect inherent in their own religious scriptures.” - RNS


Has a few good points but the truth is way simpler than all that. Any belief system that claims to be “a faith” isn’t really one if it believes in coercing others to claim it as theirs or believes in denying others the opportunity to do their own searching. It isn’t faith if its forced. Those just don’t go together.

… so what you do to people of other faiths is attempt to persuade them of the truth of your own.
