Godless Societies Don’t Reproduce

Godless Societies Don’t Reproduce

God commands young women to “marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” (1 Timothy 5:14) therefore, if you are a young woman who loves the Lord, you should be obeying this command to the best of your ability. Too many Christians have been swayed by the culture they are living in instead of reading and obeying the Word of God. This world needs children and no, it is NOT overpopulated as the left wants you to believe. They have left out God so they believe they know better than Him but they don’t. “Godless societies don’t reproduce. The death of God is the death of reproduction.” (Dennis Prager)

The New York Times has an article titled Where Have All the Children Gone? “The share of children in San Francisco fell to 13 percent, low compared with another expensive city New York, with 21 percent. In Chicago, 23 percent of the population is under 18 years old which is the overall average across the United States.” California has the lowest birth rate since the Great Depression. San Francisco has as many dogs as children, the article states, but I bet it has more dogs than children since people value pets more than they value people. In 1970s, a quarter of the people in San Francisco were children. The city is doing what it can to bring back children but to no avail because godless societies don’t reproduce. They are more into their pleasures than into sacrificially raising children. “Mr. Florida, the expert in urban demographics, said a lack of children made a city ‘a little bit more of a colder or harder place.’..the city seems detached from the life cycle.”

I don’t know about you but I wept when I read this article. (Yes, I weep more in my older age.) Our children have brought so much joy into our lives and if I hadn’t gotten so sick, we would have gladly welcomed more into our family. Now, we are enjoying our precious grandchildren who make us laugh and fill us with joy just as our own children did when they were young. My oldest granddaughter calls me “Mommy” once in a while but the last time she caught herself and said, “Ooppss, I called you Mommy!” I told her it was okay since I am her Mommy, her Grandmommy! I just have a grand in front of it! 🙂

Christian women, you need to begin having children and raising them in the wisdom and the knowledge of the Lord. You saw the depravity of the so called Women’s March and it’s the product of children being raised by a godless government run school system that has taken God completely out of the schools and replaced it with securalism. They worship the creature instead of the Creator and it has caused havoc. Take your children out and you be the one to train them in the ways of righteousness. The Lord has given you this job, not an unrighteous institution. Have children, lots of them and enjoy them. Love your time at home. Sure, there will be difficult days. I raised four children while being sick as a dog but God gave me strength all along the way and now I am blessed with four great children who married precious spouses and are having children.

There is nothing in life better than loving the Lord and living for Him by obeying what He has commanded us to do. His ways are perfect for us because He is our wonderful Creator. If you think you don’t have enough money to have more children, the Lord owns everything and He is our provider. If you have a hard-working husband, the Lord will provide for you. All He asks of us is that we step out in faith, obey what He has told us to do, and He will provide and give strength to accomplish His perfect will. If godless societies don’t reproduce, godly people cheerfully reproduce if they are able because God’s command to be fruitful and multiply has never been rescinded!

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
Psalm 127:3-5

  1. This is so sad. In our area right now there are a few schools closing because of this (I assume), and the children then need to get bussed to bigger schools further away.

  2. I have read your blog for a while, and although I don’t always agree 100% with you, I respect your dedication to your faith and have learned a lot from you about how to better respect my husband, which has enriched my marriage. I thank you for that. However, I have to respectfully disagree with you when you make the generalization that the Women’s March was “depravity” and the product of children being raised in a Godless society. I implore you to avoid characterizing all the women who might have taken part like this, because it just isn’t true. While I didn’t participate, I know personally some of the women who did, and they love God and are good people who their country, they just may have different views than you do. I know you don’t like it when people criticize you on social media by making generalizations about you because of your beliefs, so I don’t believe you intended to do this with your comment about ALL the women who participated in the march. Thank you for considering my comment.

    1. Hi Kelly,

      I write specifically to Christian women concerning biblical principles, as I am sure you know.

      From all I saw at that march, there was nothing good about it. We are the richest nation that has ever existed, all of our needs our abundantly met, even our poor are richer than the kings of old, and a woman was almost our president. To me, it was a big, fat temper tantrum because women have all the rights they need and then some. I’m sorry but I can’t agree with you on this issue.

      I’m sure there were some good women who marched and maybe many but the cause was terrible, especially the day after the inauguration of our new President. They never did this for President Obama who voted for full-term babies to be able to be murdered in the womb and everything else that is unbiblical. Everyone stands for something and I stand for godliness and goodness.

      1. Yes, you write to Christian women, and believe me, there were many Christian women who were marching this weekend. I know you stand for godliness and goodness, and I believe your intentions are good. That is why I didn’t think you could possibly mean to judge every single woman who participated with your characterization. You can’t possibly know what’s in each woman’s heart, and it is not up to us as Christians to judge another’s faith. That is all I was pointing out. I respect your views and your disagreement with the march, I just think that lumping all the participants into one description using such harsh words (i.e., depravity, Godless) is not only incorrect and judgmental, but it, I believe, detrimental to the points you are trying to make. Again, I thank you for all you have taught me, and I look forward to reading your blog in the future.

          1. Not really, Lori, because I’m not very political. As I said, I did not participate in the march. But, I do know personally some of the women who did, and they are good Christians, good mothers, good wives, and good people. They are not depraved or Godless. That is all I’m saying. I don’t want to argue about the march or politics, because that isn’t the point, and honestly, neither political side is perfect (surely our new President doesn’t model the Biblical marriage values that you teach). In fact, as I’ve stated before I respect you and I don’t want to argue at all. I just don’t think ALL the women who marched this weekend deserve harsh words such as depravity and Godless. You and I cannot possibly judge, and shouldn’t judge, their relationship with God. Just as they should not judge yours and mine.

          2. How can you make a judgment call then to whether or not these “good Christians” that you know personally marched for goodness? We all make judgements all the time, Kelly. You are judging me for judging them. We judge when someone treats us kindly or mean; “That person sure was kind” or “She sure was mean!” This is life and we are called to judge good and evil so we can flee the evil and run to the good.

          3. Kelly,
            They were marching because they fear that President Trump will take away their rights to have an abortion with his threat to defund Planned Parenthood. Women cannot call themselves good Christians if they support abortion, because abortion is seen as murder in the eyes of God and goes against the commandment “Thou Shalt not Murder”.

        1. No, I am not judging you. I’m merely asking you not to lump the millions of women who marched into a depraved, Godless category. I think it hurts your teaching and your credibility to do that. I don’t think the people who gave you negative book reviews based on generalizations about you and your beliefs were right to do so, and I don’t think it’s right for you to make generalizations about all the women who marched, either, especially when it comes to questioning their faith. It’s one thing to judge someone for being kind or mean (your example), but who are we to judge another’s faith in God?

          1. I am judging their actions, Kelly. Not one of my Christians friends wanted anything to do with that march. It disgusted them.

            I would love for you to ask some of the Christian women who you know that marched and come and tell me what their answer is since then we will know why they did what they did. The overall theme of the march was extremely ungodly.

          2. Kelly, you made a judgement that Lori was being judgemental. So how were you not being judgemental? As believers, we are commanded to judge other Christian’s if they are approving of, or taking part in sinful behaviours or speech. To do otherwise would be sinful and unloving. While I dont totally agree with Donald Trump. I would of more readily voted for him over Hillary Clinton. For reasons that I will keep to myself. I no of a couple of well known christian females that came out in support of Hillary. And their reasons were based on emotions due to past events in their lives. Not on logic and on God’s word. And as Lori pointed out, there was nothing Godly about the march. For several obvious reasons, firstly, the speakers, secondly, the companies/political parties that supported the march.

            As for these women being ‘Godly’, on what basis are you calling them Godly? Because they say the right things or is it based on God’s word and their willingness to live transparent lives? You are using your judgement to declare that these women are Godly. What place does a Christian have with supporting groups that uphold abortion and homosexuality as being something to be glorified? According to the gospel, if they do not repent of their evil ways they will suffer a horrible eternity in hell. I’m not saying one should of voted for Trump in order to be regarded as Godly. But as a Christian I cannot in good conscience vote for a person such as Hillary Clinton.

          3. I’ve never said that I support Hillary Clinton, AnonM, or that I supported the march. In fact, I made it clear that I did not attend. All I have said is that I think it is un-Christian to use disparaging terms about an entire group of women, many of whom are women of faith, even if you disagree with them. More to the point, I think it hurts Lori’s intentions to teach women and to spread the love of Christ, which I respect.

            Lori, you asked me to ask some of the Christian women I know why they participated, and here is what two told me. One said that she marched because she disagrees with the leader of our country setting such a poor example of Biblical marriage (which is what you teach). A second woman said she marched in support of immigrants, because she believes God’s love is for everyone, and because she wants to protect the environment, which she believes is God’s gift to us. I have not yet received responses from the others. I do suspect that one of the women I know marched because she has gay family members, but that does not make her any less of a Christian. I AM NOT DEFENDING THEIR REASONS, or the march. I am simply saying that these women are not depraved, nor are they Godless. It’s unfair, and unkind, to make that kind of sweeping judgement about people we don’t even know.

          4. I saw this on a facebook page of a liberal man asking women why they marched:
            This woman stuck out as she says she is Christian (there were a few others too who specifically mentioned that).

            I wonder if these are the reasons Kelly’s friends would cite.

            “I marched because institutional sexism was a significant factor in my mother’s death, because I’ve been sexually harassed throughout my life and it has cost me economically, because I’ve been abused and victim blamed and that has cost me in incomprehensible ways, because I’m surrounded by people who believe women should submit to men and have helped to fray my relationship with god because I won’t be a submissive wife, because my surrounding culture tells me that my opinion isn’t valid and that my husband needs to be home to provide me with a gutter guard estimate, because when I personally owned our home in Charlotte every contractor asked to speak to my husband, because trump is a dangerous demagogue and his cabinet is contrary to women, the disabled, people of color, other religions and sexual orientations, because a covert war has been waged by the religious right for decades and the fruit of their labor is coming to bear now, because of gerrymandering and stripping Cooper of power in NC, because we have been betrayed by some women, because a new wave of voters who appear to be aligned with Phyllis Schlafly have emerged in their Candice Cameron Burr hallmark movie worshiping ignorance advocating for female submission as a pop culture conservative trend, because the southern baptists are disguising their efforts to bring children into their folds by working through non-denominational appearing churches with huge children’s ministries to attract seekers and indoctrinate the youth while the parents are theologically asleep or apathetic because it is the “cool church” all their friends attend. Because my great grandfather marked my grandmothers shoes, because my boss called me a babe-raham Lincoln after I gave a speech and told me I was too hot to be a venomous bitch lawyer, because the evangelical church has brushed domestic violence under the rug and blamed women for not being submissive enough, because silence is acquiescence, because I don’t want anyone but a doctor controlling my daughter’s body and won’t let her die because a zealot has decided that even if it means her precious life that bore into this world, she will be denied medical treatment to prevent her death, because my brilliant daughter should not make .70 to her brother’s 1.00. Because a woman of color should not make .60 to my daughter’s 0.70. Because gay and trans people are children of God and worthy of love and protection. Because I believe in both freedom of and from religion as well as the equal protection clause. Because Jews were burned in the name of white nationalism!!! Because black boys and men are being killed without cause. Because black women are being hog tied and arrested even during peace making efforts. Because as a result good police officers are being executed. Because mental and physical wellness and a social floor for everyone is the best anti-crime and anti-violence policy we can offer and caring for our people is unapologetically Christian as well as ethical. Because I identify as a Christian but don’t want to live in a theocracy governed by laws that reflect the most radical interpretation of the Bible by choice. Because I adore the constitution and its promises and protections. Because I will not allow alt-news become our controlling narrative. I will speak the truth and call out lies everywhere I go. Because I have a vision of unity for our Country and our world but I won’t go along to get along. I want real unity not the appearance of it. Because my God loves us all and we were all created equally. Post away because this is my truth.”

          5. Did the one who marched against “biblical marriage” march against President Obama who is the first President in the history of the world to institute same-sex marriages which is unbiblical too? Does the one who marched against immigrants know that President Trump is mostly going after the ones who have committed crimes and is closing up our borders to stop the truckloads of illegal drugs coming into our country and that loving the environment means you don’t make it a god like the left is doing today and saving eagles’ eggs but allowing the murder of unborn babies? I live very environmentally friendly but as a Christian, I know this earth is temporary and that God values human beings far above the environment.

            Are you a born again Christian, Kelly?

          6. Here’s a great response by Matt Walsh on building the wall and the immigration situation your friend marched for:

            Trump signed an Executive Order today to begin construction of the border wall. The Left has been sent into hysteria yet again (but I guess they never really settled down from the last bout). I’ll just say a quick word on this subject.

            There may be financial and logistical challenges to building a wall. If you make arguments against it on those grounds, I think that’s reasonable. But that’s not really the argument — at least not the primary argument — made by Leftists. Instead they paint this as a human rights abuse. Of all the arguments on both sides of the wall debate, that one is by far the most asinine.

            We have not violated anyone’s human rights by making it more difficult for them to break our laws. They have no right to break the law in the first place. They have no inherent right to come here in the first place. Coming here is a privilege, one that is granted through a certain process. Those who circumvent the process have broken the law. In so doing, it is more accurate to say that they have infringed on our rights than that we have infringed on theirs by trying to prevent it.

            And if building a wall is a human rights abuse, isn’t Mexico guilty of it? Isn’t every country with immigration laws guilty? Or is it just us? Are we the only country on Earth that isn’t allowed to protect its borders? That seems like a pretty unfair rule, doesn’t it?

            But it turns out that it’s not really a rule. We have the right, as a nation, to fortify our borders and protect our national identity. Most countries on Earth do the same, and the ones who don’t (see: most of Europe) are paying the price for it.

            One other point: I’ve seen a lot of Leftists on social media arguing that turning away immigrants is “not Christ-like.” They say the Bible forbids such laws. Well, here’s the problem with that: First, it’s not true. Second, I thought you people are AGAINST crafting laws based on the Bible. If you’ve suddenly abandoned that position then I guess we need to have a second look at our laws permitting abortion and gay marriage, shouldn’t we? Oh, but you don’t want “Christ-like” laws in those areas, do you? You just want to apply the theological argument where it suits you, right? And even then you do it inaccurately.

          7. I am a born again Christian, Lori. So blessed to be one. And the last thing I want is to argue — or even talk — politics on your blog that is about so many more important things, in my opinion. (There is nothing more important than motherhood, for example). I thought I made it clear that I did attend the march, so why would you start presenting political views to me as if I were defending any? I share many of your views, but that’s not important here. What is important is that we don’t assume that ALL women who participated in the march are depraved. I didn’t like it when I read your book reviews and people were calling you unfair names and making character assumptions when they didn’t know you. The same holds true here — I didn’t think it was fair to make assumptions about other women’s faith, characters, and how they were raised. Lori, one of the women I know who marched is one of the finest people I have ever known. She radiates Christ’s love to whomever she meets. Depraved, she is not. I want to continue reading and learning from your blog, and I thank you for considering my thoughts. Let’s love and respect one another, including those who may see things a bit differently.

          8. You wrote, ” I thought I made it clear that I did attend the march…” I think you may have meant you did not. As you are welcome to your opinion, Kelly, I am as well. I am happy we are sisters in Christ but you will never be able to convince me that this march was anything but evil because of the many things that I saw and heard about it. Blessings!

    2. I, too, avidly read this blog. And have gleamed useful, Biblical-based information to strengthen my relationship with my husband. I have discontinued my nagging and when disagreements arise, allow him to be grumpy and soothe (like providing a back massage!) when appropriate. This allows us to discuss our disagreement and come to an understanding about each others behavior. This new perspective on my relationship has also allowed me to see that nagging others on topics I disagree upon isn’t an appropriate course of action and coming from a place of love and understanding allows for greater discourse and communion with those whose beliefs differ.

      These lessons, through Lori’s interpretations of God’s Word, have led me to be be a participant in the march last weekend. I consulted with my husband (who was also initially hesitant due to pro-life organizations being rejected from sponsorship), we consulted God’s Word together. I felt called to show compassion and was hoped my presence might open the dialog of the protest in a productive manner to include rights for the unborn. I was also deeply troubled by Trump’s language of assault and his insults towards women, the disabled, and immigrants (whom my husband is one). And even though he supports a pro-life platform, none of his rhetoric resembled Christ. After discussing, he agreed I could go but declined to attend with me as he is an immigrant and is uncomfortable publically displaying his status as he has a few years still for full citizenship and didn’t want to jeopardize the process. (It’s precarious not being a citizen at times, and I quite often take my citizenship for granted having known nothing else)

      In marching, I hoped to affirm the dignity of ALL human life including after birth, mothers, the disabled, the immigrant, the poor, and the marginalized. Not all in this nation have been blessed with Godly upbringing and financial resources. And while Churches are called to support their vulnerable parishioners, this does not regularly happen. I wanted to show vulnerable mothers who may otherwise turn to abortion in the face of adversity love and support by working towards a safety net to support and affirm that their lives and the lives of their children and family matter. I also feel that more pro-life citizens ought to show up these sort of things as how are we, as a nation and as Christians, to encourage a respect of the unborn without dialog and respect for the born? As I Peter 4:10 says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”

      I recognize my story may not receive the best reception (I’ve not been allowed to add my story before, so I hope that in this edit, it is respectful enough to be posted) but am open to gentle rebuke. It feels that this nation is in turmoil because we are so quick to judge in black and white terms and discuss only with those who view the world similarly. But, ultimately, we are all responsible to God who is our Judge so I feel that discussing and being being open to criticism is the best way for Christians to take a lead in this nation to bring it into God’s loving fold.

      1. I decided to publish your comment, Amy, Tessa, Rachel, Susan (all the names you have changed on your comments that you rewrote in order to try to get me to publish this) because of your tenacity and because if you lie about what your name is so many times in trying to get published, I am sure you are lying about what you wrote here as well, but not with the mean comments of yours directed towards me that I didn’t publish. I pray your eyes will one day be opened to the Truth of God’s perfect will. Blessings.

        1. I use pseudonyms due to my background in tech and my right to privacy. I am also aware that some of your readers want to engage in in-person confrontations with those who dissent – which you have encouraged at times. This makes me uncomfortable, and while intentions may be pure, one can never know with strangers on the internet and it is in my best interest to keep myself and my family safe. I mean no ill-harm with any comments that may have rubbed the wrong way (I am working on my knee-jerk reaction of being being outspokenly frustrated at times) only hope to hold you accountable for your own words, which, at times, seem to display a double standard.

          1. Thank you for explaining, Amy, but you don’t need to hold me accountable. I have plenty of godly people, especially my husband, holding me accountable. Blessings!

    3. Kelly,

      You said, “While I didn’t participate, I know personally some of the women who did, and they love God and are good people who their country, they just may have different views than you do.”

      You know… if they are supporting something as evil as abortion, they aren’t obeying God and to love Him (as Jesus said) is to obey Him. So you saying that they “love God” while they support killing millions of babies each year is just wrong. They’re putting their selfish desires above really loving God, and they may even be in danger of going to hell for supporting something so horrendous and evil.

      Even some feminists have spoken out that they were saddened and even horrified by the “Women’s March.” You know why? The main reason they cited was because they said abortion should never be something to be “proud of.” That these women were putting their selfishness on full public display and with absolutely no care or respect for what abortion really does. That should tell you something, when even hardcore feminists didn’t agree with how “proud” (prideful) and selfish these women were. Your “Christian” friends may not really and truly be Christian… they definitely do not have the Holy Spirit convicting them over something even Atheists can understand.

    4. Kelly,

      I felt the way you did when the march was going on that some Christians were there to support the good things of women’s rights, such as eradicating abuse and sex trafficking around the world. It was only until after I started hearing the speeches that I realized how these Christian women were duped. They were used by their desire to be part of a limited set of values to become a part of one big evil show. There was not one redeeming value that came out of that march that I would want my daughters to aspire to. No, you could not go into this barn full of crap and come out with a horse no matter how much you searched for it in the poop. They made it seem that the horse existed and that somehow this was going to champion women, but really all it did was champion Satan’s old lies. Our Christian women were much deceived, except for those who tried to march to champion life, and were rejected as unworthy women because their values did not align with the evil agenda of the day. Satan comes disguised as an angel of light all the while leading many forward into the darkness of so many evil things that go against God’s Word and ways. May we keep or eyes wide open as we enter a perilous time when right will be consider wrong and wrong right.

      LBGTQ, abortion, filthy language, accusations against Christ and Christianity, hate speech, threats of wanting to blow up the White House, and somehow we are to find a silver lining in this for Christian women who made the mistake to go March on Washington? No… there was no redeeming value to the march for Christians, but if they want to go again for the March for Life in March they can redeem themselves standing up for something true, and pure and honest, and loving… none of which was part of the January March. Let’s be honest…

  3. Lori, I’m happy you briefly mentioned valuing pets over people in your post. It is a sad reality. I had an opportunity to work at a daycare and a veterinary clinic before coming home to be a wife and mother so I was able to make some comparisons.

    Too many women expressed greater guilt leaving their pets overnight for routine spays and neuters than they did for their children abandoned at daycare. For children at daycare it was common to have necessary supplies forgotten at home. Women found excuses to drop their children off earlier and pick up later. But a pet scheduled for surgery? Many possessions would be hauled in from home. Pets were admitted at the last minute and picked up as soon as possible. The guilt these women suffered over a surgery to promote healthy lives for their pets was too extreme and should have been directed towards their children in daycare instead. Most instances the pets were bouncy and went home like nothing happened; unfortunately, that’s not the case for children at daycare.

    1. It’s tragic, Holly, since Jesus created this earth and the animals for human beings to enjoy and to cause us to worship Him by seeing His glory all around us but many people today are worshiping their animals and spending a ton of money on them instead of doing everything they can to be home with their own children whom Christ died for. He didn’t die for pets.

  4. My sister unfortunate can not bear children, as much as she wants to. Does that make her Godless? I know you probably will not post my comment or reply because you might take it as me challenging you but I truly just would like to know your stance on that, because I could only wish sometimes that life was as black and white as you make it. Thanks for the post and for you opinion on such matters.

    1. I am sorry, Riley, I know that is a difficult trial for women to go through and this is why I wrote, “if you are a young woman who loves the Lord, you should be obeying this command to the best of your ability.” I understand there are quite a few women who would love to have children but can’t. There is adoption and foster care if they really want children.

  5. Aw, Grandmommy! That is so sweet! Is there a better sound in the world? My favorite sound is baby laughter. What else can bring such joy?! I wish I had more children as well. We could only have two here with us. One more waits in heaven. What a day that will be when we are all together! Whenever I see a big family, I make it a point to tell the mother or father how wonderful it is to see a big family. It is a rare sight any more.

    Mother Theresa said “Too many children? That’s like saying there are too many flowers in the garden!”

    Blessings on your day, Lori!

    1. I love this quote by Mother Teresa, Tam! As long as we are open to the blessings of children and know that they are indeed blessings and not curses as many in our culture do today, the Lord is glorified since He knows our heart.

      “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” (Col. 3:17)

      Blessings!

  6. Hi Lori! First, I read 1 Timothy 5:14 and it says: “I think it is best for young widows to marry again and have children and a household to look after, and not give the enemy any chance to raise a scandal about them”. Maybe my translation is different than yours, but please explain how this verse from Saint Paul to Timothy became a command from God to all young women when it is a directive from our great apostle for young widows.

    Second, I’m Catholic and live in the Philippines where abortion is illegal. We have the opposite problem that people in developed countries have. Health care is limited, and while infant and maternal health are improving, there are still many preventable deaths and sickness. People have great faith that God will provide, so they have ten to twelve children, which seems more than they can reasonably feed, shelter, and educate. I pray for our people always and give to charities that help them, but there should be a balance according to God’s will. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Wouldn’t the same instructions to young widows be for all young women? He could have easily told these young widows to go out and get careers to support themselves but he didn’t. He told older women to teach the younger women to be keepers at home also in Titus 2:4, 5.

      If you research the founding and promoting of birth control, it is all evil with evil roots. Teaching natural birth control to married couples is a much better way to go since they can still have children and they have the mindset that having children is good. God owns everything! He provides for His children.

      Lastly, all of the old preachers of old spoke against birth control and the Church took a strong stand against it but as usual, unfortunately, the Church is not far behind culture in taking up its ways and allowing the 60 million deaths of unborn babies which is a result of birth control (controlling our fertility and being able to decide whether or not to keep a baby).

      “I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging bread.” (Psalm 37:25)

      1. Hi Lori! I read both 1 Timothy 5:14 and Titus 2:4-5, and many women here follow both verses. Many Catholics here are strongly pro-life and do not use birth control, and abortion is illegal. Maybe people are more forgiving here, families are more tightly knit, and most always see children as a blessing. But it’s sad that there have been 60 million abortions in the United States.

  7. While the world may continue to limit the number of children, the church should never have a birth control mentality. But unfortunately, the consensus among evangelicals today is that birth control is ok as long as non-abortive. Every famous evangelical pastor holds this position, even going as far as saying that birth control may be a form of “good stewardship”. This makes me very sad because I feel the church has caved to the spirit of this age, which is materialism and selfishness, but have put their own spin on it (being responsible, good stewards, etc.). I know this sounds very harsh but the more I think about it, the more I think birth control is due to faithlessness and worldliness.

    I grew up in the northeast surrounded by families with just 2 or 3 children. Later on, as I grew older, I found out that many of the women my mother’s age–relatives, family friends, mothers of my good friends, my own mother–all had multiple abortions. The reason I kept hearing over and over again was, there wasn’t enough money to support all the children, not enough for each child to go to college, etc. And these were all upper middle class families! But those are the same reasons I hear for why people use contraception. It’s this worldly and faithless mentality that leads to birth control.

    I did not think birth control was much of an issue until Exodus 1 struck me as never before. That God chose to bless the Israelites with more children when they were under the distress and hardship of slavery. And he greatly blessed the midwives who saved the hebrew boys with families of their own. Why are we limiting God? The greatest blessing of God on earth is another life, and his greatest blessing to us started with the birth of His Son. He is the Author of Life! So why as a church are we so anti-life? I do think Christians would help the prolife cause a lot more if they gave up their birth control mentality. It’s also good to remember that widespread use of birth control began only in the last century. All the reformers were vehemently against birth control and saw it as evil!

    1. I love this story about Egypt too, EC, and have used it many times to show that having children is never a bad thing and many times brings blessings. It’s a matter of trust. Do they trust in their own power to provide and care for the children they may have or do they boldly put their trust in a Creator who owns everything?

      All the preachers of old and the Church stood firmly against birth control and I am saddened they had relented to our culture because birth control came to America through very evil roots.

    2. Totally agree! It’s gets dicey if there are significant health problems with the parents, but I cannot understand why any Christian who is blessed with health would ever consider birth control.

  8. Ken & Lori,

    Just wanted to encourage you guys in what you’re tackling here! I’m SO PROUD of y’all writing posts on these issues even if people are now suddenly criticizing you for being “too political.” We need someone standing up and pointing out when our culture (which this women’s march seemed to be very extent in) is going in the wrong direction! You were exactly right in this post, the Christian women who went there are extremely misguided and may not even truly be “Christian,” or have the Holy Spirit convicting them if they’re that able to tricked and used as pawns. Soros funded a good portion of this march, and it seems like he’s behind everything recently where the people/activists are used like puppets to further his agenda of creating a divide (Black Lives Matter for instance).

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know I was so proud of you Lori, reading your responses to the accusations that you’re being “too judgemental,” against the “poor Christian women who didn’t know better.” You’re just stating facts. Even the lead organzier is a known anti-semetic woman who supports Sharia law of all things! How ironic that they were marching under the direction of a woman who supports massive assaults and abuses against women, and yet they THOUGHT they were marching for just the opposite. It’s amazing to me how these women were so duped!

    1. Thank you Stephanie! Ken told me long time ago that President Obama was a puppet in George Soros’ hands and he was right. I loved seeing many godly preachers and teachers of the Word stand up and say, “Vote for Trump!” We are called to pray for those in authority so we can live peaceable lives but there’s nothing that says we can’t have a voice in the process of who our leaders will be. Leftists will claim that the separation of Church and State doesn’t allow this but this was designed to protect the Church from the State not the State from the Church and God.

      I believe the majority of women in this march knew exactly what they were marching for and none of it was good. Even marching against Trump’s past character as if every single one of them have nothing in their past that is shameful. It was sickening and I have gone through my Facebook feed and unfollowed all of my leftists friends so I only see good, encouraging, and unlifting things now and I love it! 🙂 Dwelling on the good and lovely is a great thing!

      1. Donald Trump is also a puppet of George soros. The people in power do nothing on the own. The United snakes of America is a corporation. That’s why it goes against everything the scripture says. We cannot trust Donald Trump ant more than Obama because they are one in the same. We need to pray for the leaders as the scripture says that they will repent and forsake there evil ways.Donald trump is not a follower of Jesus Christ.

        1. Can you show me an article that states he is a puppet of Soros? What he is doing right now isn’t a puppet of him.

          I am not sure where President Trump is in his faith but I know a lot of Christians are praying for him, as they did with President Obama, and hoping he will have a much more pro-life, pro-Israel, pro-policemen, pro-military, and less government intrusions as President Obama was for.

          In saying all of this, I know our hope isn’t in any President or in anything on this earth. Our hope is in Christ and He is the Rock upon which we stand.

          1. I can’t find a article at the moment (we can’t trust media anyway). But using discernment and being lead by the Holy Spirit will show you that this man is not good for america. He’s cutting regulations which us definitely not a good thing. Yes we can pray that the Lord saves this man but he has to be willing. I know he’s proliferation because he’s trying to stop abortions, and remove the LGBT movement that’s happening. As far as immigration i don’t think that will be a smart move because certain jobs Americans won’t do because of the pay. If they are not bothering anyone why bother them? His statement regarding “black” people were highly offensive and very ignorant. This country is more divided than ever and it’s so unformatted that a group of people is only seen as 3/5th of a human. Anyway great article and I fully agree with bearing lots of children. If he’s able to stop abortions completely that would be a good and righteous thing….may we pray for the best during these next 4 Years.

          2. It’s more divided than every since President Obama was president for the last eight years, unfortunately. By your comment, I can clearly see that we value completely opposite things and you can’t find any article about it because I am thinking you just made it up for the sake of argument. Praying you will believe in the Savior of your soul.

  9. Hi, Lori! See you got a bit slammed for this post, so I just wanted to write in and encourage you that you were SPOT ON. Keep preaching truth. I’m sorry to see so many women vilifying you for something that is absolutely true.

  10. I was saddened that some of my acquaintances who are professing Christians participated in the march. Some wore vulgar shirts that were certainly not pleasing to God. They are all pro life, but they wanted to protest against Trump personally, and the inequality they feel they have received as women.

    1. And what “inequality” have they received as women? They need to go to Islamic countries to see what true inequality looks like. A woman just about made the presidency. Not sure how much more “equal” you can get.

  11. Lori, I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ of the bible. I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the way of salvation according to acts2:38. My biggest prayer is to not be deceived by the masses. Every president is under some type of authority. Just because we disagree does not mean I’m trying to argue with you. Yes Obama did everything that he was told to do so does Donald trump. Anyone who goes against the plan will be terminated. Example Jfk. They don’t think of these things themselves lori. A little research will show that. Don’t believe everything you see on the news. Everyone is going to be affected by trumps term. Some more than others. Thankfully our treasures are not in this wicked world and my hope is in Christ…shalom.

    1. We will have to wait at least fours years to judge what President Trump does with his term in office but I judge President Obama’s two terms as evil. I hope President Trump’s will be different and so far it is a lot different, thankfully, but I am an optimist, typically, and I hope for the best and pray a lot! But yes, I agree with you. Our treasures are in heaven and Christ is the Rock upon which we stand.

  12. Trump did more in the first hour of his presidency than Michelle Obama did in 8 years…
    Jeff, I couldn’t publish the rest of your comment because women are way too sensitive to these kinds of things but so funny! 🙂

    1. Okay this post is really confusing.
      So you, Lori, are actually both “Dave” and “jeff”? Are you “Trey” as well?
      All this time you’re welcoming men’s comments on your blog because you (wrongly) believe us women can learn something from them, when all along the men are really you?
      Unbelievable!! And also quite disgusting that you would be so deceitful!
      I’m so upset that you would do this. I only discovered your blog recently and have been having success putting your principles into practice for my marriage but this is so disappointing. I can’t think of anything more anti-Christian than this.

      1. I am not any of those men, Marjorie, and if you read my blog long enough you would easily be able to tell that they don’t have my “voice” in their writings. They write for themselves. I accidentally wrote “Dave” when the comment was actually from “Jeff” and they are both real men as far as I can tell. No need to get upset about nothing. Jeff wrote a joke about the Women’s March and I wanted to let him know why I couldn’t publish all of it. Blessings!

        1. Apologies Lori.
          I have not been reading your blog for long, only a couple of weeks, so I have not had a chance to get used to peoples different voices yet.
          Please forgive my incorrect assumption.

  13. It wouldnt surprise me if Obama was George Soro’s puppet. But as for Trump. I doubt it. Considering George Soros is outspoken against him. It could be for show. But its unlikely. If a christian woman was upset by trump. She would of been better off starting a petition or praying about any issues she has. Not lowering herself to a Godless, depraved parade. If Mexico dont like the idea of a wall, then maybe they should do something about their drug-fulled crime waves. And stop brining it into America. As for being ‘oppressed’ American women wouldnt know the first thing about being opressed. As Lori pointed out, try living in an islamic, war torn country. Or impovorished Africa, where young girls are sometimes in labour for days with out relief. Then tell me how ‘opressed’ you are. Anywho. The bottom line is, as believers we should obstain from all appearances of evil. And the majority of women of that march didnt just bathe in evil, they drowned in it. If you really have a heart to help some of these people groups, pray about ways you can help. Protesting doesnt get you very far. Prayer will accomplish so much more than a protest ever will.

  14. I appreciated the article. I wish I had not scrolled down and read the comments. I found the rhetoric on BOTH sides sad. It is always distressing to see Christians bicker. This does more damage and hurts credibility. What would an unbeliever think reading this!? We are all convicted by the holy spirit of different things and God is refining us ALL in our own unique way. I’m sure there were Christian women at the march. I hope they found many parts distasteful as a portion of it WAS truly unbiblical. However, I have plenty of planks in my own eye to worry about!

    The comments turned ugly and were not “gentle” or humble. I don’t expect anyone to be yielding in their convictions but arguing (or discussing) in this way does not benefit every reader. Especially unbelievers!

    Timothy 2 23-24
    23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.

    2 Corinthians 12:20
    20 For I fear that perhaps when I come I may find you not as I wish, and that you may find me not as you wish—that perhaps there may be quarreling, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, conceit, and disorder.

    2 Timothy 2:14
    Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers.
