    Among the findings in a survey by the Pew Forum on Religon and Public Life's U.S. Religious Landscape Survey of 35,000 Americans:

    70%, including a majority of all major Christian and non-Christian religious groups except Mormons, say "many religions can lead to eternal life."

    78% overall say there are "absolute standards of right and wrong," but only 29% rely on their religion to delineate these standards.

    " 70%, including a majority of all major Christian and non-Christian religious groups except Mormons, say "many religions can lead to eternal life." "

    Religion never saved anyone.

    Christ Jesus saves.

    That is tantalising! What are the titles of the other two, and what forum(s) are they on? I know there is a search facility, but I am not sure what to search for. I tried "Pew forum" but that brought up every thread with the word "forum" in it. So then I tried "pew" and was told that the word was too short, or too common, to be used as a search term!

    I don't believe I saw Him mentioned at all in this meaningless survey.

    Wrong questions usually reflect the bias of the questioner and are designed to yield wrong answers.

    That's the problem--too many people are trusting in their individual religion, their own goodness (which God says is "filthy rags"), or in a sinful, mortal man or woman to get them to heaven, and not in the finished work of Christ, Who is THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. He is the ONLY Way, the ONLY Truth, and the ONLY Life. Nothing that we can do will save us; it's ALL through Jesus the Christ. All other ways and man-made religions are false and only lead to destruction.
