George Barna’s Survey On How to Get to Heaven

George Barna does a great deal of research in religious circles. In surveys taken a few years ago (1996 and 1997), he found some amazing facts. Most Americans, including many professing Christians, believe that people are inherently good, and that their primary purpose is to enjoy life as much as possible. 38% believed that it doesn’t matter what religious faith you follow, because they all teach the same lessons.44% believed that all people will experience the same outcome after death, regardless of their religious beliefs.55% believed that if a person is generally good, or does enough good things for others during their life, they will earn a place in heaven.
