The Spirit is working in you, if I may be presumptuous. You’re absolutely correct.
One aspect of the argument against artificial means of contraception (or artificially induced sterility, as I prefer to call it), that Pope John Paul II emphasized, is that the act of contracepting makes the marital act a lie. “I love you, but not enough to give myself completely to you.”
Seriously, Google “Humanae Vitae.” It’s actually a very easy read. The pope bases his arguments in nature. In fact, he never appeals to divine revelation.
I’ve been where you’ve been.
Thanks very much, and thanks in advance for any other replies.
Yes, people can be taught, but realizing it and truly understanding the point has to come from within. And it finally did for me.
I appreciate the comments, and the encouragement!
Maybe one human being improved his world-view today. Only a few billion more to go! But that’s how things happen, one mind at a time, one soul at a time. :)
