While it is true that tribalism, us and them, is what religions do, it is not scriptural.
God is a universalist and the way I read the Bible, we are all saved.
Believers tend not to believe me though.
They love to hate too much.
2 Peter 3:9 KJ
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but
that all should come to repentance.
1 Timothy 2
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
If God's will is supreme then we all repent and are all saved.
