Liberalism a Folk Religion

Would it be fair to say that the general view of God and salvation is that as long as a man is not evil, or impossible to like, then he will “go to heaven”?  The issues of what a man believes about God and Christ, of regular attendance at the means of grace – the church service of the faithful – are really unimportant.  The only thing that would disqualify a man from “going to heaven” is actual evil, as evil is understood by the ordinary man, such as murder.

If this is the case, and I suspect that it is, then what we call Liberalism is just folk religion with a label.
