Some People Say the Old Testament Words “Children” and “Seed” Mean the Same Thing. In Light of God’s Command to Be Fruitful, Should We Use Birth Control?
article March 18, 2010
Question from a reader: I believe children are precious to God, and I would never use a form of birth control that could potentially kill a baby. But all of these arguments are confusing. My husband and I are praying God would give us convictions for our own family when it comes to family size. We don’t want to just follow what the world says to do (i.e. use the pill, stop having children for convenience reasons, have a vasectomy when we are “done" having children). What advice would you give me?
