In his sermon today, my pastor gave some interesting statistics (I do not know his source and it is really late, so I apologize for not fact checking the source):
33% of children in the US have no consistent/any father present
If a father is present and spiritually active, then the chances of their children being spiritually active in their lives are 75%.
If a father is absent and/or not spiritually active (didn’t catch the exact qualifications here), then there is only a 15% the offspring will be spiritually active.
These stats are independent of the spiritual activity of the mother.
Pray for the fathers in this nation.
