Once the church was seduced by Margaret Sanger, the angel of death and founder of Planned Parenthood, to embrace birth control, which separated sex from procreation, it paved the way for the world to embrace abortion on demand and all its adjacent evils (homosexuality, child molestation, the rape culture, and other deviant immoralities).
Sex with no commitment produces a people who treat their spouses or sinful partners (sex outside of marriage) as mere sex objects. Most, in this compromised state, refuse to muster the responsibility necessary to raise children.
Perhaps, it is past time for Christians to put the ax of God’s truth to the root of this bloody idolatrous tree. The church must first repent of the anti-child mentality inspired by the Devil himself, who came to kill, steal, and destroy.
The same reason why the world murders their offspring is the same reason why some Christians do the same or falsely believe that a barren womb is now the blessing and a fruitful womb is now the curse.
The American church, for the most part, rejects the Biblical truth that children are gifts, blessings, and God’s reward to faithful parents (Psalms 127:3-5). No, they believe children are burdens that interrupt our hectic American lifestyles that seeks personal fulfillment without being encumbered by the sacrificial love necessary to advance God’s Kingdom in the earth.
Yes, Jesus compared children to His Kingdom (Matthew 19:14, 15). A part of the Abrahamic blessing is having descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as plentiful as sand on a seashore. Why the marriage covenant in the first place? God seeks a godly seed to fill the earth (Malachi 2:15).
Who is afraid of the big bad baby today? Here is a clue. It is not just the unregenerate world inspired by demons, but tragically, those who name the name of Christ. To say this ought not to be is a huge understatement.
God has never withdrawn His cultural mandate, “Be fruitful and multiply, subdue and take dominion.” Time to get back to God, His word, will, and way. With all our seeking of God’s blessings, remember one of them is a fruitful womb within the confines of holy marriage.
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
