“The decision to have children has always struck me as an essentially selfish one: You choose, out of a desire for fulfillment or self-betterment or curiosity or boredom or baby-mania or peer pressure, to bring a new human into this world. And it has never seemed more selfish than today. From a global perspective, having a child in a developed nation is among the most environmentally unsound decisions you can make — a baby born in the United States adds another 58.6 tons of carbon to the atmosphere per year. (That wipes out the net positives of my 25 years of vegetarianism in roughly three months). On the individual level, as fires rage and hurricanes form, as water grows scarce and fields lie fallow, it’s hard not to wonder: What kind of future can we offer a child?” (Written by Emily Holleman)
I didn’t have children for any of the reasons that she mentioned. I had children because I knew I was created to do this and this is what God wanted me to do. This “Save the World” movement that has taken a grip on our nation is satanic. It’s a way to rid the world of human beings so the earth can be as how it was created to be. The vital point they’re missing is that God, the Creator of all, created this world for human beings! He created them to marry and multiply! They are fighting against God’s ordained will.
Yes, mankind is destructive on this earth. Yes, we live in a toxic environment now, but this is due to sin in this world. God will one day burn this earth up. Mankind has no ability to destroy this earth as the environmentalist seem to claim. No, only God has the ability to do this. Nothing environmentalists have come up with even helps the environment. They want us all to drive electric cars. Don’t they know where electricity comes from? The new lightbulbs have mercury in them. All of their ideas and mandates are foolishness.
Having children is not selfish. In fact, it’s selfless. It’s hard being pregnant. It’s hard going through labor. It’s hard getting up throughout the night to nurse one’s baby. It’s hard training them to be good, disciplined children. It takes a lot of sacrifice and hard work to bear and raise children. But Satan is the master at twisting what God has ordained as good into something ugly, as this woman has done.
What about bringing children into this wicked world? This world has been wicked since the Fall. As long as God is blessing your womb, He wants you to have children. He has told us that children are a gift and a blessing. There is no greater joy than to have children walking in Truth. This world needs more godly arrows than it needs anything else. This world needs more salt and light! Bear and raise children, dear women. It’s actually selfish for married couples to not have children. All of the reasons they give are always selfish.
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.
