Poll: 85% think they're going to heaven
Dec. 20, 2005 — Vast majorities of Americans believe in heaven and think they're headed there. But elbow room won't be a problem: About eight in 10 believers envision heaven as a place where people exist only spiritually, not physically.

Eighty-nine percent in this ABC News poll believe in heaven, which is consistent with data going back 30 years. Among believers, 85 percent think they'll personally go there — mainly in spirit, since 78 percent say it's a place where people exist only spiritually.

Who gets in is another matter. Among people who believe in heaven, one in four thinks access is limited to Christians. More than a third of Protestants feel that way, and this view peaks at 55 percent among Protestants who describe themselves as very religious. ...

Of course I believe in UFO's! Oh, you meant flying saucers and aliens? Nope, don't believe in those.

Unfortunately, I heard a story once of a man who believed he could go to Heaven as long as he had faith in something... anything... his example was a biscuit. He believed he could get to heaven by believing in a biscuit. Sad, scary times...

Daniel thankyou for mentioning that web site. I have been using Ray Comforts model which I believe to be the same model that Jesus used--- Loud to the proud grace to the humble. Thanks for bringing that information to this site, I should have included it in my last posting.

As RV clearly says
Hell's Best Kept Secret
is that the LAW is the schoolmaster to
lead to Christ:
How do you convert one to the Lord Jesus Christ?
The LAW of the LORD is
perfect: converting the soul.

I wonder if they polled those same people with this question.

Can any of you tell me if anybody can be good enough to go to heaven?

When I witness to people I will ask them if they died where would they spend eternity?

They almost always say heaven, and I ask how they know that, they will say because they are a good person.

This is when I go through the commandments with them and they soon realize that according to Gods standards they are not good at all.

People think they are good becasue they are measuring against men like Hitler, Stalin or some serial killer.

But the 10 commandments is the greatest measuring tool we could ever use to get a sinners attention.

When you throw Gods commandments at them, Gods word will peirce right to their very soul. AMEN

85% think they are Heaven-bound. No suprise here.

Years ago I was in traffic school with at least 40 other
motorists who, like me, were in the process of working off
a traffic violation(s) each of us had recently committed.

the instructor asked us to raise our hands if we considered
ourselves "excellent drivers". About 2/3 of us raised our
hands. Most of the rest raised their hands after the instructor
asked how many considered themselves "good" drivers. Only myself
and one other class member raised our hands when asked how many
of us considered ourselves to be "average" drivers. Since we
were the last students in the class to raise our hands the
instructor didn't ask how many of us considered ourselves
to be "bad drivers".

I'll NEVER forget this lesson in humility--or general LACK thereof--
which exists in our sinful human race, which this gifted instructor
so aptly illustrated.

MATT.7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

2 PET.1: 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Matt.7:7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

What miserable men and women!

"Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable."

Craig, quite right - the key issue.
Remarkable too is the prominence given by ABC. We're talking here of 78% of 89% of the US population sample - that extrapolates to 69% of the US population - over a two-thirds majority!
Woe to the abject preachers who created this miserable vanity.
(BTW, I wouldn't want ANY of that 69% on any jury, but that's another issue...)

May the sound biblical preaching of so many faithful pastors be heard in the public square, in the highways and byways compelling men to come in.
God have mercy.

About eight in 10 believers envision heaven as a place where people exist only spiritually, not physically.

Evidence of the pervasive Gnosticism among Americans.

So many believe in heaven, but reject the notion of hell. I wonder just how many of this 85 percent are actually born again or a Christian by the standards of the Lord and the Apostles...probably is a lot lower percentage (especially if you compare those who "prayed" to those who repented and confessed sins).

""Similarly, among all Americans, 21 percent think that only people who are Christians can go to heaven. Among the rest, 60 percent think both Christians and non-Christians can get in, 7 percent are unsure and 10 percent don't believe""

There is a lot of people in for a very big and nasty shock.

1Peter 4.17
"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
1 Peter 4:18
And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"
