Supersessionism

This article on “supersessionism” got me thinking about proselytizing.  One of the quoted authorities distinguishes between proselytizing vs. evangelizing – he declares that proselytizing involves demeaning the subject of conversion, but to me that seems like a matter of semantics:  The act of either proselytizing or evangelizing invalidates the subject’s religious path as a true way to the same God.  At the end of it all, we’re all talking about basic moral codes and the same God, or else by logic, our chosen deities must be battling it out in the heavens somewhere
