Are children a blessing or a curse? I have not found any Scriptures to support the notion that it is a blessing from God to limit children. Nor can we expect God’s blessing to be upon us when we deliberately choose to limit our family size.

It is not my desire to judge or condemn, for God is our Judge. I believe, however, that someone has to be brave enough to speak the truth, despite all the excuses that the Christian crowd continues to throw against it.

Genesis 1:28 says, “God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it.” God has never taken this mandate away, for it is an eternal blessing that has never been withdrawn.

Even after the fall and the great flood, God reiterated His mandate to Noah to “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,” not only once, but twice. Genesis 9:1-7.

Even in times of great trial, God still looked for fruitfulness from His people (Exodus 1:1-21). And when He sent them into captivity, He still commanded them to be fruitful (Jeremiah 29:4-6).

Be encouraged. Colin
