Study: Religious Students Perform Better in School

A recent study by a doctoral student at Stanford University appears to demonstrate a correlation between religious observance by adolescents and their success in school. The study by Ilana Horwitz, a Ph.D. candidate in Stanford’s Graduate School of Education, analyzed the differences in academic performance among public-school students based on the level of their involvement in religion.

Using data collected between 2002-03 by the National Study of Youth and Religion (NSYR), as well as interviews she conducted with over two dozen public-school students, Horwitz categorized students into five levels of religious observance: Abiders, Adapters, Assenters, Avoiders, and Atheists.

Among all categories, Horwitz was able to narrow down her findings to the differences between Abiders and Avoiders, finding that the Abiders — those who were the most religious — had the highest levels of academic ...

Sorry, sir, perhaps you need to read history more extensively.
Your blanket statements cannot be supported biblically either, because the children of God are not born in time out of ancestry or lineage in a particular group of faith.

God does not save people by groups, but individually.
Peter had a similar misconception in Acts 10 when he reckoned,
"... Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons, But *in every nation* he that feareth him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him."

At different times in history God has showned mercy in different ways, places, and circumstances, and one was by shaking the tyranny of Rome in raising simultaneously in different parts of Europe key men searching and preaching the Word.

"For he (God) said to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
So then it is not of him that wills nor of him that runns, but of God that shows mercy." Rom.9

Sorry, but God does not seem to be as denominational narrow-minded as you seem to be.

That all denominations and religious Christian groups suffer shortcomings is true, and undeniable, because no one saved becomes perfect in judgement in so facto as if given by a miracle wand.

The mainline Protestant denominations, including all of those founded by the Reformers, are descendants of Roman Catholicism and RC practices are evident in every last one of them. True Baptist churches (and not the Baptist in name only Calvinistic Baptists) are descendants of the church established by the Lord Jesus Christ and built up by His apostles. The former group are daughters of the great whore of Revelation; the latter line is the only biblical church that has ever existed.

Baptistic believers were bucking Rome centuries before the Reformers got in on the act.
Certainly, they were 'baptistic', (say they were NT patterned regarding the issue of baptism), yet they sustained often divers odd peculiarities in creed which Baptists of today would fluster and flush about. Nevertheless, never they were named or known as 'Baptists', so it is as jumping into an opportinistic wagon to make them part of direct Baptist ancestry historically.

Quite an indictment, Youth. Makes me glad I'm a Baptist and not a Protestant.
Inspite of differences in certain points, historically Baptists by doctrinal conviction adhered to the body of Bible believers rejecting the supremacy of Rome in the sixteen century,
Any believer before the Reformation with the same tenant were not named or known as 'Baptists', except by the later revisionists of church history, of course.

Besides, any present Baptist, like it or not, is greatly indebted to fierceless reformers who under the mighty and favourable sovereignty of God shook the powers to be chaining church and state under tyranny at that time, without which present Baptist's boastings would afford no chance or space.

To be clear, I am not here to bash the church, or make fun of it. Just yesterday I talked with a house church leader, what is the cure for apathy in the church? How do we encourage people to have a burden for the lost and ministry? Do we send them to seminary, or is there something we can do? My advice is to make the church precious, if you are a member, you have to commit to ministry, anyone can be useful. You can't just come every Sunday and do nothing. Make yourself useful. Maybe write a letter to an American or European Christian, pen pal, get together with other friends to pray, visit someone every week. If not, then the pastor has to ask why not? And usually that is where sin is exposed. And if a person does not want to deal with their sin, I would not invite them to church. Church is precious. Word of God is precious.

Thank you for your response and clarification. I am sure we could all blush at our inadequate love and devotion to our precious Savior. May our service be borne out a heart of gratitude and worship instead of the rigor of what amounts to meaningless religious duties to a false god. By His grace and for His glory may we cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit and perfect holiness in the fear of the Lord. Thank you for that reminded and admonition.

Protestants

Ah, many of our Reformed brethren would fit this category. A Protestant would be one coming out of the RCC in protest of its unbiblical and ungodly teachings. Thank God for the Reformation. I do, however, believe there has always been a Church that has been true to the Word of God and that was never part of the RCC, thus not Protestant.

Many who currently would claim the name Protestant, alas, are not of those our Lord would term His sheep. Hope that clarifies it for you. God bless

I guess I mean that is the current stereotype of them (not that it's a wrong one) . In my life I only had Mormons and J.W ever visit my house, to give out tracks and invite me to their church. I have not seen anything close to this, besides myself doing it. At the airport, you can the entire middle east take out their carpets and pray during the wait times. And not just a simple prayer, but maybe about 10 mintutes+. I have only seen the Chinese and the African charismatics pray like that. Too bad those charismatics say the name of Jesus like 60 times when they pray, and many are not saved. And the traditional Jewish people, liberal or conservative, how many do you know who are not circumcised? How many do not have a bar mitzvah? Not very many, if none at all.

Now, what is a stereotype for a protestant church? Bible thumping, ok, is that a majority of your church or the minority?
I hope it is the majority. But it goes back to my point, the reality looks very bleak.

And why should we not refer to Protestants as a legit Christian church? Does your church not consider itself Protestant? Even most non-denom churches, would say they are!!

For the sake of discussion we will equate protestants with Christians, not something I would normally do.

Are you asserting that the majority of LDS go door to door, Jews raise kids correctly? Are you then saying that only a small minority of Christians are diligent in doing both duties of sharing their faith and/or rearing their children according to the precepts found in Scripture?

Unbelievers are committed to a variety of religious ideologies, all ineffectual.
Faith is the gift of God to His elect.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast."

As for school performance?
I dislike the association by some of education to faith.
It sounds as though God only saves the educated, and the uneducated peasants don't get a look in. That's not how God works in His servants.
That's not what the Bible teaches.
And human merit of any kind has nothing to do with faith the work of the Holy Spirit.

In this fallen sinful world the christian will suffer and with many types of afflictions, will experience tribulation in a world which rejects him/her. We are not in our true home in the world.
Highly educated successful people are invariably the atheists, humanists, secular, and Liberals of this evil world.

Jesus the Son of God was an unemployed carpenter.
The pharisees were the religious and the educated elite of HIS world.
He choose poor people such as fishermen to be His Apostles, and didn't go anywhere near the educational establishments of His day.

"Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God." Luke 6:20
