AMERICANS PREFER FAMILY OVER GOD

A 2007 study by the Barna Group found that seven out of ten adults choose their earthly family over their heavenly Father when asked to choose the most important relationship to them. Of the 1004 adults over the age of 18 that were surveyed,

    -One-third said their entire nuclear family is more important than God.
    -Twenty-two percent named their spouse as the most important relationship in their lives.
    -Seventeen percent said their children were of chief importance.
    -Three percent identified their parents as the most important relationship in their lives.
    -Interestingly, when asked to identify the most important group or network in their life, 29 percent named their church.
