It's fine for you to have your opinion that bc is inherently sinful, as long as you don't want to make it illegal.

I do find it a little offensive that you compare people who prevent pregnancy as basically the same as having an abortion, but I suppose you're entitled to your opinion. I also see that you're pregnant with #3, and your opinion of this may change if you've got ten kids and your doctor is telling you the next one will kill you. I come from Utah, and this situation (serious health problems after a high number of pregnancies) is surprisingly not uncommon.

Just curious, will you have as many children as you are able to until your body is no longer able to get pregnant?

little s, what I didn't mention was that I DO have health problems that require me to take medication, I have 4 children that are spaced over 20 years and I have nutritional deficiencies.

OOPS...forgot to add...God is very clear on tithing and paying taxes.

Hi Sue,


I'm sorry to hear about your health problems. I understand your decision, and don't want you to feel like I don't! I totally realize that this issue is debatable, even among otherwise like-minded Christians.


I agree that God has given us some choices in life, and that the choices need to always honor Him and that's why abortion is out entirely, but with non-abortifacient birth control the lines are still a little hazy when we are talking about

Thank you-- I hope that never happens too :)


Plus- just first thoughts. If I were told I would most surely die if I were to become pregnant, then a decision to not have sex would be a decision for birth control. So I'd probably just use normal birth control, so that my husband and I could continue to have sex, because that would be the least harmful to our marriage.

little s,


I understand what you are saying when you talk about not compromising your Christian beliefs or obeying what God is telling us to do.

Sue - that was a fabulous post!


<<< You have to trust that others know what God's will is for them just like you do for your own....other Christians have a personal relationship with Christ just like you do and hopefully we/they are listening and following.>>>


That says SO much!


I "heart" you.


When Gary told me he had found Jesus, I thought, Yahoo! We're rich! But it turned out to be something different.

I second your sentiment!


Also, IMO, the crux of Sue's statement hinges on the word "Personal".

"It is right to be contented with what we have, but never with what we are."
