Household or family, you've used both terms now. Are you claiming it is impossible for a Christian family to produce someone who was not a believer and follower of Christ?

Why would you believe that murderers are Christians? They are not.
So was it Christians who came and conquered the nations already here? The witch burning puritans weren't Christian? Is this country founded on Christianity? I'm trying to follow your mind set, but much needs to be clarified.

But he can deceive, right?

God doesn't make threats. Warnings , yes.

Revelation 20:15 (NKJV)
15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Christian = Christlike... Christ did not condemn people, you are, therefore, YOU are not a Christian.
Threatening people will not save anyone. It would only serve to push people away. I dismiss your crazy invisible sky-fairy ways just as easily as you copy and paste your hatred into this forum.

Of course. God's word means nothing to you now. But it will on Judgment Day. It goes in His Books.

Revelation 20:12-15 (NKJV)
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

No, I'm not claiming that. Many Christians do not believe the promises. But they are still Christians. And so, many will lose their loved ones forever, even though they are saved themselves.

It's quite simple. Professing to be Christian doesn't make it so.

James 2:19-20 (NKJV)
19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe--and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

First you claimed a Christian and his household would be saved, now you've stated a conflicting premise. So, some in a Christian household are still at risk of not being saved?

Yes, I understand a claim doesn't make it so, but, what I am asking is, based on their actions, were the founders of this new nation Christian, and is this a now Christian nation?
