How Americans view themselves? August 29, 2006

Barna Group is a pollster like Gallup and does very interesting survey of American Christendom. Some of it are controversial, while many are useful. This one is very interesting – How Americans view themselves?

The research reveals that adults generally see themselves as good people, spiritually stable, and living a good and honorable life. Yet, despite the spiritual focus people claim, the study found that people’s lifestyles, attitudes and self-perceptions are more likely to be affected by their life-stage and ethnic culture than by their faith commitments.

How important is religion to Americans? The study most Americans “feel accepted by God” (88%), see themselves as “deeply spiritual” (62%) and believe they can be accurately described as “a fulltime servant of God” (59%).

Very interesting! How much of this is true for Asian Indians in America?
