However, in our end times, our planet is extremely overpopulated (over 7 billion people), and our world’s natural resources, are almost completely depleted. Also, the international global crisis are reaching a boiling point of utter calamity, and our sheltered homes in the West, will not be safe from the devastation. If we bring another life into this world now, we are simply creating another victim of nuclear genocide, and environmental mass extinction.
It’s hard to deny that the end of Earth is neigh, but people so easily ignore that fact when they indulge in the bliss of making love to their partner, which often leads to pregnancy. We should ask ourselves, ‘What future do the children even have?’, and ‘How can we protect our children from the dangers of a dying world, if we do nothing to stand against our own destruction?’. Sadly we wasted the blessings of our children, by taking everything for ourselves, and soon they will not even have their most basic needs met, in the great tribulation to come.
Yes, it is a joy to have family, and leading a young one as they mature gives a sense of fulfillment, but why would anyone want to bring someone into a world that teeters on the brink of a global nuclear holocaust, or absolute environmental failure. When the end comes, how will we explain to our children, that they are going to die? How will we comfort them amidst so much pain and suffering?
In underdeveloped countries, millions of children die each year due to food shortages and inadequate sanitation. Meanwhile, in the west young ones are treated like princes and princesses, and are raised in a godless culture that encourages greed. All over the world, children are suffering because of the choices previous generations made on their behalf, while we are continuing to multiply, simply bringing more casualties into the massacre. Bringing another child into the world, only adds to the problem of overpopulation and third world shortages.
Ultimately, we really need to stop procreating, whether using protection, or abstaining from sex. If you do conceive a child, you must take responsiblity for it. If you cannot provide your child a good home, (or don't want to) you must find them somone who will. Abortion is murder and God detests it! If you really don't want children, then either use a condom or don't have intercourse.
If you want to be a loving parent, why not adopt a underprivileged child? You want your life to have meaning by being a parent? Then bring a young one out of their torment of poverty, into the blessings of the West. It is a fact, God adopted us into His family, while we were undeserving and radically depraved. Why can’t we follow God’s example, and love another person’s child as our own?
We are one human race, and ultimately a family of many variations, but few truly see it that way. There is a great divide between the world’s people, often based on ethnic differences. Our religious, national, racial, cultural and linguistic differences, are examples of things that drive us apart. That doesn’t have to be our plight, for can be overcome our differences by showing the love of God to our neighbours, no matter how far away they may be.
Jesus stated in Matthew 25:35-36 - “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me”, He goes on to say in a verse Matthew 25:40, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
This would suggest, that serving others is actually service to the Lord. We can give unto God, by giving to the needy. There is no greater expression of God’s love, than to act as the hand of God, by blessing those in the deepest darkest dungeons of our World. There is such a great need on our planet for God’s servants to rise up and take action. Religious words are not enough to quench the thirst and fill the bellies of the hungry. In fact, religion has been on this world for thousands of years, and the problems only get worse as the time goes by. If you want to see God’s blessing in your life, try to be a blessing in someone else’s life. If you truly want to have a lasting legacy, seek a need and meet it. Don’t live to fulfill your own dreams, but to make the dreams of another come true, and adoption is a great way to do that. There’s a mass multitude of needy children, who would be blessed greatly, if they had a guardian that loves them, even if they are adopted.
Truly you will have purpose without giving birth to your own children, by accepting the cause of the Christ, and fulfilling God’s will in your life. Universally the Lord loves us, not because of our religion or piety, but because we are His handiwork, and a part of His created universe. Our mission should be seeing God for who He truly is, and living to show others how great and loving are His ways. Maybe God’s will for your life is in fact parenthood, but with so many unmet needs in the lives of children, even in your own city, I don’t think its necessary to procreate.
The Epic Testament is the final revelation of God to humankind. It is full of truth and light, in a dark world that longs for the dawn of Christ. Don't dwell in the darkness, but seek the path that Christ illuminates. Walk in the will of God and you will be blessed, as you bless others in need. Read the Epic Testament and share it with others, so they can come to an understanding of a truth more real than any other. Knowing the true God is essential if you want to have a meaningful life. False God’s are everywhere. Hook and bait capture the plenty, but with the help of #EpicTruth you can walk in the light of Christ and serve the true Lord of our Universe in worship.
