Birth Control

Okay, this is a scary topic to open up at all, but here goes. First of all, Tim over at Challies Dot Com is going to be tackling the subject, and I'm interested on seeing what he has to say.

There are a lot of things I'm still working on, but one thing that has become rather clear to me. I wish someone had told me this, so I'm telling you. The birth control pill can cause abortions. Maybe you already know that. Maybe you're cringing in shock and disbelief. Maybe you just don't believe me at all. But I would encourage you to read Randy Alcorn's booklet, Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?. This is not a rant, but a carefully researched article, written by a well-known Christian author and pastor who didn't know either, but then had to know if it was true. Lots of people have lots of different opinions about birth control. But this is not an opinion, it is facts about life. The booklet is a free PDF file. So find out for yourself.

Well, I can't have anymore kids so it is a moot point in some ways for us--- but I still get all flustered when I think about it....I'd love to have a large family but alas, we can't. I like Tim Challies, but a few months back when he made the statement that miscarried/stillborn babies don't go to heaven, I quit reading him.

I looked for the post that you mentioned. I only found this one where he seemed to agree with John MacArthur's book, Safe in the Arms of Jesus. I'm not fond of the topic, as I have heard compelling arguments for both sides. I'd like to totally agree with John MacArthur, it does seem to make sense, but I've also read compelling arguments based on election and covenant families. I'm still working on this one. I will say that I do not fear for my children, as I believe that at the very least they are covered by the "blood on the doorposts" of our home until they are old enough to be accountable for their choices.

As a mom to 2 babies who died before birth, I have to believe they're safe in the arms of Jesus. It's what gets me through.

Sometimes my greatest belief-tester is that which gives me ultimate peace in my heart. I just have complete peace that my babies are in heaven. If God created them in my womb and knew them before they were born, down to the very hairs on their head, I have to believe He is a big enough God to take them to be with Him. I just have to have the faith to believe it and leave it in His capable hands.

So that is where I come from.
