Can attending church really help you live longer? This study says yes

New research says worship services might be just what the doctor ordered.

A recent study by Vanderbilt University professor Marino Bruce has found that people who attend religious services live longer and are less stressed. The findings held true across faith traditions, said Bruce, the associate director of Vanderbilt’s Center for Research on Men’s Health, in a video posted to the university's YouTube channel.

"We found in our study that actually attending church is actually good for your health, particularly for those who are between the ages of 40 and 65," said Bruce, who also is a Baptist minister. ...

That reminds me, I've seen people carry around their pet snakes, look I've got no beef with that as long as you have it under control, but when you're Pentecostal and walking snakes around (like the folks I saw) then we've got problems, because I've heard of too many stories...

Advert:“Ahab’s armour-the best marksmen couldn’t shoot an arrow through its joints!”


I Kings 22 the Lord wanted Ahab to attack and be killed so Ahab could not resist the lying spirit that God sent by decree. We know the story, the arrow is unaimed yet God directs the instrument of death through the aperture in Ahab’s armour. God controlled Ahab’s decision and sent the arrow exactly to its destined place.

Ephes 1:11
being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will

The second causes-sword, fire, famine, bullet, arrow, Judas Iscariot’s whole prophesied existence, the cross, wicked hands, wicked choices, wise choices … part of ‘all things’ predestined?

See Acts 2:22-23 and 4:24-28 28 ‘to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place’

From a human point of view the scriptures show our responsibility, yet God has appointed our exact time to die, ‘being predestined... ALL THINGS’, according to His unchangeable perfect plan.

These are often hard things; consider the millions of second causes that brought Judas to his predetermined destiny and Christ to His appointed hour EXACTLY to the nanosecond

Here is something for consideration An all knowing God definitely knows the time of our demise, and all have an appointment with death unless they are caught up. The question would be, is the date a fixed date from the time of your birth?

Job mentioned that his days are determined and the number of his months are with God, bounds that cannot be passed. (14:5)

Yet we have the following Scriptural admonitions

Proverbs 3:1&2 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, SHALL THEY ADD to thee.

Proverbs 10:27 The fear of the LORD prolongs days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

Deut. 5:16 Honor thy father and they mother...that thy days may be prolonged (see also 6:2)

Ecc 7:17 Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time

Can our actions hasten or extended our destiny with death?

Pr3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Ps91:14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
1Ki3:11"And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, ...but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; ...
14And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, ..., then I will lengthen thy days"

" How many nongs did it take to work this rubbish out, not to mention the cost for these peanuts to conduct this bulldust. Wasn't this same survey put up a while back?"

Yeah I thought I remembered a survey like this, I'm guessing it's a different one.

You learn something new every day. I was thinking the mortality rate was 100%

Mortality risk today? The Lord knowth-
- and might be lessened by brethren's prayer-
Your mortality risk over your life time ? 100%
Heb 9:27"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

Some of these places do have a higher morality risk- depending on their doctrine.

Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."

Do Christians really want to extend their lives amongst all this persecutions?

Phil 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you." (Paul's words)

James5:11Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. 12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. 13Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Church with power of prayer will raise thee up!
Thy health restored in Christ the Lord!

Eph3:20Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Our Shepherd guards the flock and heals us.

I would have thought it would shorten one's life. Especially in places like N Korea, China, Pakistan etc.

I guess the article is talking about "love one another" churches, which today seem to be almost extinct.

This is the silliness of things like this that promise a longer life if you __________ {fill in the blank}. The bible is clear, it is appointed for man to die once. God has appointed the day of our death and nothing will prevent that day from coming. I have read stories where older folks claim the secret to longevity is this or that, but in reality, the real reason they are still on this earth is because their appointed time has not come yet.

" Specifically, the study says those middle-aged adults who go to church, synagogues, mosques or other houses of worship reduce their mortality risk by 55%. "

I take this with a grain of salt personally, I'd have to see strong evidence to see that it really does increase one's life, I know that the early church didn't have a high life expectancy, nor do some of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world who are experiencing persecution, like Cuba, India, etc.

David Brainerd died young, George Whitefield died at age...54 I believe. John Wesley died at age 84, but is healthy eating, exercise and homeopathic remedies probably was a factor in his long age.

Nonetheless, I don't gather with the church to live longer.

Depends on the church I guess, in the church of Christ you are always burdened for lost souls, plus all the contending for the faith and studying to show yourself approved as a unashamed worker of God will tire anyone out, not to mention constant preaching on how sinful we are, yeah I don't think this article is talking about that kind of church.
