An encouragement to manly Christian men…
This has been out for awhile, but I just came across it in the course of some research. Basically, if fathers go to church, their children will when they grow up. If fathers don't, even if the mothers do, the children won't.
Yes, this is a study of Switzerland, which has many cultural differences from the United States. In Europe, women have been taking the lead in church-going, and this may explain the relatively sudden secularization of that once-Christian continent. The study is from 1994. Still, the results are fascinating. In your experience, do you think the study applies here?
It may be that the Lord has made it easy for fathers to carry out their calling to bring their children up in the instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). All you've got to do, dads, is take your kids to church. Can you do that?
