U.S. Religious Landscape Survey Report II, 6/23/2008 [Excerpts]: The U.S. Religious Landscape Survey Report by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life details the religious makeup...beliefs and practices [and] social and political attitudes of the American public. This survey of more than 35,000 American adults is one of the largest and most comprehensive studies of its kind.

Data on their beliefs and practices reveal that although more than half of Americans say religion is very important in their lives, most hold a non-dogmatic view of their faith, with majorities believing that there is more than one way to interpret the teachings of their own faith and that many religions-not just their own-can lead to eternal life.

Examples include:
-53% of evangelicals believe there is more than one true way to interpret the teachings of my religion
-57% of evangelicals believe that many religions can lead to eternal life
-83% of mainline Protestants and 79% of Catholics believe that many religions can lead to eternal life
-82% of Jews believe that many religions can lead to eternal life.

[TBC: What is obviously disturbing about this survey is that more than half of those who profess to be Bible-believing Christians reject what the Bible teaches about God's truth and His way of salvation. This growing trend, along with other data from the survey showing that all other religions overwhelmingly believe that there are many ways to obtain salvation, supports the prophecies that indicate that there will be an ecumenical religion in the end times that will accept all beliefs. That of course is the religion that will bring together "all who dwell upon the earth" to worship the Antichrist (Revelation:13:8).]
