Contraception & the Bible
In this teaching many will be shocked at the way many birth control methods actually work. From "The Pill", to "The Patch" to IUD's all are potentially "Abortifactive" according to the companies that make them. Gen 1:28: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it…” Gen. 9:7: And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.” While Catholics reject (or, at least, they are supposed to reject) contraception because their Pope tells them to, Christians are only supposed to listen to the Word of God. From the apostles to 1930, however, no true Christian denomination or group ever permitted the practice, and it was Christian state legislatures across the country that made the trafficking of contraceptives illegal until the Supreme Court intruded in Griswold v. Connecticut, paving the way for Roe v. Wade. So in other words 75 years ago this message would of not been necessary because the topic was not a topic worthy of debate. Contraception was considered by Christians a grievous sin, and that fact was a forgone conclusion that was not debated by Christians. Did you know the word “contraception” is not even listed in the Websters 1828 dictionary. So the next questions to ask yourself would be: Are the Christians of today more right with God than those of the times past. The Bible warns us speaking about the Laodicean church and current church age in Rev. 3:14-19.
