Christian Fathers and Their Impact on Children

Christian Fathers and Their Impact on Children

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I knew a really nice girl; she dated a guy who called himself a Christian but certainly made no attempts to be at all like Christ. When I asked her if she thought it was a wise choice, she replied, “I can handle it!”

Maybe, but what about your kids? Below are some statistics from government studies which show how important it is to choose husbands who are strong, spiritual leaders:

If mother and father attend assembly/church regularly:

  • 33% of their children will end up attending church regularly
  • 25% of their children will end up not attending at all

If mother attends church regularly. Father does not attend church at all:

  • 2% of their children will end up attending church regularly
  • 60% of their children will end up not attending at all

If father attends church regularly. Mother does not attend church at all:

  • 44% of their children will end up attending church regularly
  • 34% of their children will end up not attending at all

If the mother is the first to become a Christian in a household:

  • there is a 17% probability that everyone in the household will follow.

If the father is the first to become a Christian in a household:

  • there is a 93% probability that everyone in the household will follow.

As you can see, it’s important to pick a strong husband. Often Christians pick poor mates because they’re picking impatiently and with spirituality being one of the lowest-ranking criteria. As 1 Cor 15:33 says,

“Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.”

Anyone can succeed, but why make it harder than it needs to be?

With love, always,
