One must truly understand the deception and the sin and be convicted by grace. Some feel called to put off childbearing until they are in a better position to care for children. That means that birth control is not acceptable if it causes a fertilized egg, fetus, or baby to be aborted. No one hates his own body but lovingly cares for it, just as Christ cares for his body, which is the church.

Christianity is not supposed to be easy. There is nothing in God's word that is against limiting the number of children produced using contraceptives as a form of birth control. Focus on the Family holds that all human life is sacred, and that life begins with fertilization — the union of sperm and egg. They have an intense love for one another, and long to be reunited. In these areas, then, we can only advise that husbands and wives earnestly seek the Lord's guidance and then accept His leadership. It is a reward far greater than any given to anybody else in heaven or on earth.
One of them was that — what does God say about contraception, that are the methods that deliberately prevent or reduce the likelihood of pregnancy or childbirth? In most cases, both parties are to blame in a divorce. Still it seems to be against the spirit of what christian sexuality is supposed to be. They have no kids, and so have a concommitantly higher economic demographic. Makes you wonder if it is true that sexual denial can backfire and really mess up ones psychology because it is so unnatural. We don't believe that it's wrong to prevent fertilization, but we oppose any method of so-called birth control that functions as an abortifacient — that is to say, any method that acts after fertilization to end a human life by preventing implantation in the womb. Any thought, any temptation that is not pleasing to Christ is immediately Is to overcome the temptations to sin that arise when our lusts and desires draw us to react in ways we know to be evil i.

The choice would be hers, and I would not condemn her for abstaining from getting pregnant. Since early 20th Century, Protestants have acknowledged that sometimes there are constraints in life that see contraception as a reasonable way to postpone, space or limit the birth of children. However, this does not rule out the possibility that at times there will be reasonable grounds for using contraception, due to particular circumstances. We must conclude that abstinence as a method of birth control is not scripturally acceptable. However, in this situation, you are biblically considered the innocent spouse.
God created the human race and told it to be fruitful and to multiply, filling the earth he never gave us any instructions on when to stop or when to slow it down.
