This subject is being revisited by American politics and is causing evangelicals to rethink their position. A recent article I received states that Christian couples are not ordered by Scripture to maximize the number of children they could conceive. The author states that a couple who marry in their early twenties could have 15 children and goes on to say that this level of reproduction is not mandated in the Bible.

My answer to these statements is that we either believe the Bible or we do not believe the Bible. I believe that Genesis 1:28, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” was the first mandate given to man. This is supported and reiterated again in Genesis 9:1, 7.

The author of this article obviously has fears regarding larger families. He is trying to provide a way out for unwanted pregnancies so a Christian couple can enjoy sex without the fear of pregnancy.

Christians need to get a new mindset about birth control and let God take control.

Psalm 127:1 says, “Except the Lord build the house, they labor in van that build it.”

We need to have a new mindset to overcome the fears of pregnancy. This fear is not of God. Oh how ignorant we are on seeing children from God’s perspective!

Be encouraged. Colin
