Divorce in the Church

Good Morning. I grabbed this off Rick Warren's website about the divorce within the church. I have been quoting Barna for years that evangelical Christians have a slightly higher rate of divorce than non-Christians. However, that may not be the case. Nevertheless, regardless of the divorce rate, we are to pray for married couples within our church, and especially for the rocky marriages.

Have a great day. Bryan

"While the prevailing wisdom says that born-again Christians are just as likely as non-Christians to divorce, that may not give the whole picture. Sociologist Brad Wilcox says that when church attendance is taken into the discussion, it isn't even close. Churchgoers - whether they are evangelicals, mainline Christians, or Roman Catholics - are far more likely not to get divorced than those who don't attend church."
