Earthly Families: A Reflection of the Family in Heaven
Family, Religious aspects, Seventh-day Adventists, Attitudes
"As part of the same survey, respondents were asked if they were able to talk to one or both of their parents about religious issues (Q22.03). While not all of the respondents grew up with Adventist parents, their continued relationship with the church suggests that, during their formative years, they were encouraged to speak about religious questions with one or both of their parents. Seven in ten respondents agreed (40.6%) or strongly agreed (30.5%) that they had this type of relationship with their parents or guardians, while 9.1% admitted they weren’t sure. Only 9.3% of respondents disagreed or strongly disagreed with the statement, indicating that they were unable to talk to their parents or guardians about religious issues."
