Belief in religion is irrelevant

The problem is not religion, but rebellion against God.

"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23.

"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned — every one — to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all." Isaiah 53:6

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23

"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'" John 14:6

Jesus also said, "All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out." John 6:37

There is no mention in the Bible that one has to believe in the right religion. Salvation is a free gift that comes by God's grace to whoever He chooses. This gift has nothing to do with what we believe, say, or do. "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
