These statistics could be applied to any religious group. The key to understanding this is in the question of how many “read the Bible” versus those who do not. IOW, how may actively practice their faith vs those who do not. This model is applicable across the board.

Culturally its expected and normal for people to be sexually active.

Of course that is biblically wrong but peer pressure is powerful.

I tend to doubt the number is as high as 80%. Even if it is, show me the numbers of practicing Evangelicals. Betcha its somewhat lower to say the least.

Well, if they’re reading their Bibles they’re finding that they should not deprive each other and they’re supposed to drink water from their own wells...

I would hope that married people who attend church are loving their spouses in all the right ways. =)

He is the vine; we are the branches. If we remain in Him we will bear much fruit, but apart from Him we can do nothing.

Remaining in the Word is critical to everything good.

In other news, America has a 20 percent chance of surviving the Obama presidency!

What is about human nature that causes us to obsess about whom other people are having sex with? We just can’t stand it if other people are happy?

We have all failed, one way or the other, in living the idealized lifestyle that God wants us to live.

The key is that we can access the grace that has been promised to us all to make those requisite changes.

When I was young, I’d have settled for a 10% hit ratio.

Do you mean to tell me that Christians are sinners? Say it ain’t so.

We’re fallen and redeemed ... not immune to temptation. We try. We fail. We try again.

Not just peer pressure. Genetics. The urges are powerful.
