Sometime ago Time Magazine ran an article that reported on the benefits of religion and the church, and some of the observations included:


1. Heart-surgery patients who draw comfort from their religious faith have a significantly higher survival rate than those who do not.

2. The blood pressure of people who attend church is 5 mm lower than that of those who do not.

3. People with religious faith who attend church regularly experience less depression than nonreligious people.

4. Suicide is four times higher among non-churchgoers than churchgoers.


What might be the reason behind these correlations? What is it about the church that offers such healing? God? Purpose and meaning in life? Psychological support? Support from a loving church family?
