Promoting observance with positive efforts

I'm a little confused then Sir.

I read the following in the Mishneh Torah:

.....a treaty cannot be made with a city which desires to accept a peaceful settlement until they deny idol worship, destroy their places of worship, and accept the seven universal laws commanded Noah's descendants. For every gentile who does not accept these commandments must be executed if he is under our undisputed authority.

- Law of Kings, Chapter 8 rule 9

....Moses was commanded by the Almighty to compel all the inhabitants of the world to accept the commandments given to Noah's descendants.

If one does not accept these commands, he should be executed.

- Law of Kings, Chapter 8 rule 10

I was wondering how you reconcile this to the answer you gave me?

It's probably just a mistake on my part, but..if you could just clear that up it would be great.

Thanks again for your time Sir.
