1Co 7:13 And the woman which hath a husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
1Co 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
1Co 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
1Co 7:16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
1Co 7:17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

How about finding the truth and light within yourself?

If you love God, and repent your sins though you should never have to worry about that, it’s more of a punishment for someone who rejects God/Christ. As to the “Lake of Fire”, I am not sure that it is scripturally supported that it is an eternal punishment. It specifically mentions being burned up in a ‘Righteous Fire”, and other places in the Bible describe that as an all-consuming fire. In other words it is possible that it simply means that those who reject are simply destroyed outright, or cease to exist, not tortured for all eternity.

Apologies accepted. Sometimes I'm like Peter myself (lopped off ears lying around everywhere)

God is all powerful, supposedly, and somewhere in the Bible is says something like: "He is not willing that any shall perish but that all should come to the truth." If an all powerful God wanted to save everyone He would be able to... and refrain from the "free will" argument, because if an all powerful God can't override freewill then HE IS NOT ALL POWERFUL and if Heaven or Hell is at stake then I am perfectly fine with my freewill being violated...
