Do children of religious families grow up to make better "life choices" than the "godless" children, so to speak?

  • I don't think so. Just because a child is "Godless", doesn't meant he family doesn't have morals and values. And, maybe they have a belief in God, but don't attend Church. they are two different things. There is always the Golden Rule.....

  • No, I do not think religion has anyting to do with the choices we make, examples are more suitable to guide.
    There are no Godless children regardless of whether they beleive in him, he beleives in them.

  • There are so many more factors to consider. Socio-economics plays a big role in the "life choices" that are available to a young person. Some religions in this country have a higher percentage of wealthy people giving their children more financial opportunities. Statistically in the US, Jewish families have a larger income than fundamentalist Christian families. That doesn't make one superior to the other, but it does mean that speaking ONLY on statistics, Jewish families have a greater financial capacity to influence "life choices" for their kids.

  • I don't think so. I wasn't raised in a religious family and I'm just fine. I'm not perfect, but I'm good. I don't smoke, drink, do drugs, commit crimes, etc. So no it doesn't matter.
