I just read an article on a church leaders web site which talked about the value of reaching out to men. They used this stat: "If a child comes to Christ first, there is a 6% chance the entire family will. If a wife/mother comes to Christ first, there is an 18% chance the entire family will. If the husband/father comes to Christ first, there is a 94% chance the entire family will. " How does your soterilogical view affect how you respond to a point like this? And if this stat is true what does that say about the doctrine of election in particular? If salvation is purely based upon God's unconditional choice prior to creation what difference would one's father coming to faith make and why would such stats show evidence of such relational influence? This stat is only one of many which present this type of question. What say you?
