Transformed Americans

According to the latest Barna poll half of all American adults said that their life has been “greatly transformed” by their religious faith.

I suspect that people just tell the Barna surveyors what they think the surveyors want to hear or that individuals perceive of themselves as being more transformed than they are.

If so many of us are transformed, how is it that society is so untransformed and that people of faith divorce at the same rate as everyone else, are unfaithful in their marriages at the same rate, and spend their money in an almost identical fashion as the rest of society?

My bologna detector is registering pretty high on this one.
