I was thinking about this question in terms of characterization, how each character expresses religious belief. Each of the Cartwrights attends church. We see that in Blessed are They. Outside of community worship, though, how religious is each character in day to day life?

Ben and Hoss seem to be the most overtly religious. Ben readily turns to scripture and references God. I don't know how often Hoss reads the Bible, but I remember him talking about God.

I don't recall Adam discussing God specifically, but he is very familiar with the Bible. He quotes scripture from memory to Ruth, and Ben reads it out loud to him in The Avenger so he knows Adam will take comfort in it. Adam also seeks out the local minister's advice in The Dark Gate and calls him by his first name so he is obviously friends with him.

I'm not sure about Joe, though. I don't recall him mentioning God or religion. He seems to be the least religiously inclined, at least during the first six seasons. Does anyone recall any Joe scenes dealing with religion?
