As Ordained by God in the Garden of Eden

The chart below can be deceiving. To get the actual percent of women’s devoutness compared with men’s devoutness you must divide the women’s percent by the men’s percent. As follows:

53/46 = 1.127

In other words, 13 percent more Christian women attend weekly versus men attending weekly. If you look at daily prayer, it’s even more startling.

61/51 = 1.196

In other words, 20 percent more Christian women pray daily than Christian men!

68/61 = 1.114

In other words, 11 percent more Christian women than Christian men consider religion important.

There is one thing they did not poll and that was Bible reading. I would like to know what percentage of women and men have read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation at least twice.

Among Christians, women are more religious than men on all measures; gender gaps among Muslims are less consistent


Don’t pay attention to every word that is spoken or you may hear the curses of those who serve you.
