Bible Study Question of the week:
The Barna Research Group released the results of their recent study and poll about divorce on 1999-DEC-21. They had interviewed 3,854 adults from the 48 contiguous states. The margin of error is ±2 percentage points. The survey found:
|11% of the adult population is currently divorced.|
|25% of adults have had at least one divorce during their lifetime.|
|Divorce rates among conservative Christians were significantly higher than for other faith groups, and much higher than Atheists and Agnostics experience.
Barna report: Variation in divorce rates among Christian faith groups:
** Barna uses the term “non-denominational” to refer to Evangelical Christian congregations that are not affiliated with a specific denomination. The vast majority are fundamentalist in their theological beliefs.
