There is an interesting discussion regarding Contraception going on in the "General Baptist " section of the forum. The pro-contraception crowd seems to take and imply certain positions which just shows how far the anti-life mentality has reached christian circles. Pro- contraception Arguments and positions(as restated and summarized by me) Argument 1-"Because contraception is possible it must be from God not from Satan" FYI back in the day when all christians taught against contraception pre-1935, Planned Parenthood (then known as the Birth Control League was fighting for contraceptive rights, they tried and have succcesfully indoctrniated the public into thinking that children are burdens not blessings. Ofcourse their next natural move after convincing the public and some churches that contraception was moral because it stopped burdens (aka children)was to stop those burdens through other means abortion) Argument 2-Yes scripture teaches fertility is a blessing and barrennnes a curse, so its only natural that I try to make myself barren through chemical or other means Argument 3- Yes children are a blessing from God according to scripture but God gave me a brain to pro-actively block any blessings he may want to bestow on me (not from scripture- Also first known as "First my will be done then yours Lord") Argument 4 -If I trusted in the Lord as you say the I couldn't go to the doctor to treat or prevent any disease, because I equate the possibility of children as an attack on my body from an unwanted disease. This one really shows how successful Planned Parenthood has been indoctrinating the public that children are a curse not a blessing from God. Please let me know your thoughts especially any that relate to scripture.
