Ronald Sider's article in the current Books & Culture "The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience -- Why don't Christians live what they preach?" is now online.

+ Only 6% of evangelicals tithe.

+ Evangelicals give 4.74% of their income, down from 6.15% in 1968.

+ While evangelicals are less likely than the general public to cohabit before marriage, they are more likely to get divorced after marriage.

+ "...it is not surprising that born-again Christians spend seven times more hours each week in front of their televisions than they spend in Bible reading, prayer, and worship. Only 9 percent of born-again adults and 2 percent of born-again teenagers have a biblical worldview."

But there is hope...
