Hence the large number of self-described "Evangelical" or "Bible" Christians who accept the teaching of Margaret Sanger on fertility and reject God's.
What makes witchcraft and sorcery evil is that it involves humans usurping powers and rights which are only God's to grant.
Article:”With few exceptions, I could trace every marital breakdown to the couple saying “no” to the fertility with which God had blessed them.”
What does the Roman Catholic church say about “family planning”? In other words, are ANY means used by married couples to reduce their number of children acceptable? I have heard many Catholics talk about natural family planning but this seems to be “saying ‘no’ to the fertility with which God has blessed them” (as the author states).
What is the official RCC view?
Back in 1975, I learned from a priest that the Greek word “pharmakeia” used by St. Paul in Galatians, was referring to the “occult use of medicinal herbs”, among which were those that enduced abortion.
So over 30 years ago, I was taught that back in the days of Paul, the practice of abortion was considered a form of witchcraft or “occult medicine” and Paul warned his Galatian church about that.
Interesting. I think I’ll request the books he mentions in his article. We might even have them in our library, since the author is a local university professor!
Thank you for this information, since no numbers are given anywhere about the history of abortion. I need to know if abortion was practiced in pre-war Germany and Europe, and now I know what to look for in my research. I could never understand the holocaust, but if abortion was being overlooked and practiced, then a Bible study I have done will be confirmed in my mind, and a great fear of the LORD fills my heart.
“Holy Scripture may never use the words abortion and contraception; however, the Bible is not silent on the issue.” God definitely lets us know that He hates child sacrifice.
What is interesting is that many pastors are starting quietly change their view on chemical contraception, so the tide is starting to turn.
