Episode 76: As a Christian there is a lot of pressure and conversation about children… A question I find myself praying about and asking others about often is birth control. The Bible clearly says children are a wonderful gift from the Lord. Also, the Bible clearly says we should lay our will down for His. With that being said, should Christians use any form of birth control or is it sinful? Should we simply let the Lord decide how many children we have?

– We shouldn’t add prohibitions or commands to the Bible.
– That something is a gift from God does not preclude our responsibility to be wise stewards of it.
– Being a wise steward of our ability to procreate may entail controlling the timing and number of children we have.
– God uses human agency as a means to accomplish His will. Using birth control does not equal disallowing God to decide how many children you will have.
