A word like will would indicate certainty.

Nevermind that. Not important. What is important is what happens to those who do not believe, and why John would even worry about heaven at all if we all wre going there. If we are all going, what does he need to preach about belief for?

In fact, what do you need to preach for?
We are all going to heaven, we are all perfect, we are all right. Go have some fun with your life. You do not believe in the Bible, so why worry about what it says? I am not being offensive, but if you think it is all wrong, that we are all going to heaven, you should be having just as much fun reading any other human book about God.

Re: Physical Discipline trumps Mental Discipline
Oh shoot. Totally forgot. There is more than one advocate here for the water-and-moonstone Gospel of Inclusion.

We are perfect, going along just fine. No need for stick, carrot, or evangelist.

Did you forget your smilie?

Yes. I needed it to explain 'water and moonstone' which was just a joke about 'fire and brimstone'.

If not, I agree with you, but the writers of the Bible might not have.

I see that GIA would rather trash the whole Bible than give up his position. This is his choice, but he must at the same time relinquish his desire to prove his case using only Genesis. Very humorous; those who believe the Bible to be true, are most often given to calling Genesis myth. Those who disregard the rest of it, would take Genesis literally.
