Oh oh!! I kind have a feeling that something is going to happen on this thread. so no matter what it is, let us keep civil Don't worry, I am intent on keeping the peace.
That is good then
Then I come along.
It does not surprise me that Evangelicals are heavier in faith. This is because most evangelicals try to accept and follow the scriptures & the commandments of God. When you inbreed "church tradition" including "pagan influenced church tradition" over the very words and commandments that Christ gave us, make excuses for it, and the bishops allow people to usurp the scriptures with tradition, it renders a weaker faith.
When people adhere to the "pagan Christians" and allow them to be recognized as saints, along with claiming Saints (absorbing) that practiced worship unlike your own faith, it proves an entirely weak foundation.
I wish the Anabaptists were included on this, as the stats would probably be shocking.
I am married to a moderately conservative Mennonite. I have been to their churches and know their families. I have not seen any evidence that one supports homosexual behavior or does not believe in God. They all abhor abortion and keep religion fully in their life. Even the school curriculum they use - every lesson revolves around God. The group varies yes, and I'm sure there are exceptions, but generally I find very heavy faith within that people.
When you allow church tradition to let you disobey God, what else can you expect but for people to become less faithful, but rather let their tradition become their idol.
