Salvation through confusion?

Wouldn't that apply to everyone who lived before Christ? Circumcision was the Old Covenant version of Baptism, but even that wasn't instituted until Abraham, and we believe Adam and Eve are in heaven. Females couldn't be circumcised, but we don't believe every woman who lived before Christ was damned, nor did the Jews see them as not Jewish, even though the unbaptised aren't Christian.
