Consider the worldviews of those who conflate various religions rather than conflating souls on the narrow path. The Pharisees had to convert or fall further thereafter (sequentially) including in the hereafter (after this life). The religion of real Christianity states the error of Pharisaism. It does that for the sake of souls to keep them from that further fall and to even raise them up from here. To come along and to say that ecumenicalism in the form of silence on the matter (the error of the Pharisees pre-conversion) for the ostensible, expedient sake of harmony now is really disharmony. It leaves people to continue the fall who would otherwise convert from the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. It leaves the world in the condition of facilitating the abuse and suffering that is inevitable when hypocrisy is present in this world. Real harmony is hypocrisy dispelled. Jesus could not be syncretic or ecumenical with the Pharisees who were knowingly whores of the Empire. They were in bed with the Emperor at the expense of the souls of the people.
