We live in a day when most people, Christians included, eagerly apply for what God calls a curse – debt – but never give a second thought to preventing or even destroying what God calls a blessing – children.
If we are to live our lives according to the Word of God, we must ask ourselves, “What saith the Scripture?”
Join the Moore family in this timely documentary as they briefly expose the evil history of the birth control movement on the 50th anniversary of “the pill.” Listen as they transparently share their testimony of how God, in His grace and mercy, opened their eyes in spite of their own sinful beginning. Be encouraged as they casually answer questions often posed to large families. Then, experience the joy of Biblical family life as they anticipate, give birth to, and welcome their tenth child into their home. Most of all, be inspired to look to the Word of God for answers to everything in life, but specifically to see that Children are a Blessing.
Psalm 127:3 – Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
This documentary gave me a lot to think about! I was horrified at some of the quotes that came from different individuals in regards to children, as well as women’s rights. This was interesting and informative and the children are ADORABLE.
One of the things that really made me think was the fact that we say we trust God but our actions show something different. This reminded me of that scene in Revelation Road when the store owner asks which do you trust, this bullet proof vest or God? God has really been dealing with me on this issue. Teaching me and I believe all of us to trust Him fully.
I loved how they spoke of raising righteous seed – the purpose for marriage – man and woman becoming one – to raise up righteous seed – to raise children for the glory of God. Pretty powerful thought. Malachi 2:15 – And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. (The next verse talks about divorce and how God hates it.)
Even those that don’t or can’t have children can still benefit children through adoption, fostering, as well as helping to raise other people’s children by offering to help. Something to think about seriously even though this was NOT brought out in the documentary, it’s just what I’m considering after watching this, as well as Camp, which I reviewed a few days ago.
