Birth contraceptives, is this against God's will?
May 18, 2011 6:44pm CST
Hello guys, one of the most controversial happening in my country these days is all about our Reproductive Health Bill. Our legislators passed this bill to lessen our people's poverty. As usual there are who don't like and there are people who also in favor of it. Most people who are against on it, stand on the reason that it is against God's will. They based it on (what maybe the only verse they knew) to the phrase that God said "go to the world and multiply". Maybe, if they would just read the whose verse on it they would never argue about controlling population. The whole verse said in the book of Genesis; (King James Version) 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Notice the phrase "and subdue it"..what's that mean? Thanks guys for reading.. Let's stop population boom; Let's multiply job vacancy and opportunity Mobhomeir here..

I had occasion to go through wikipedia on the topic of Reproduct Health Bill. I am not going into full details. But let me add that family planning measues are very much required for any country whatever its population size may be. it is not sufficient children are given birth to but they must be given a good living conditions.

'To subdue' it means 'to whip it! Whip it good!' ( that is, to 'make yourself master over it, that it answers to your command'). Using contraceptives is against God's will like 'going to a shooting range' (instead of hunting endangered species) goes against our caveman tradition ... in other words, no it's not 'against the will of God.'

You remembered me of disco music.."whip it good"..yeah..sure it is not against God's will. Maybe they have another intension behind why they wanted the world to be over populated...maybe for supremacy. Thanks for responding my friend.. Mobhomeir here..

In my own opinion if you don't give the proper education, good shelter, a good life to your family or to your child that is the against the God's will. It's true that based on the bible God's said that go to the world and multiply but as a parent our responsible to decide what things that good to our child, But we can do it if we don't know the proper method that good to us. But I do respect all the opinion of every one of us and I hoping that God's will guide our legislators what the good to all of us.

I'm a Catholic by belief but the thing is our country does have that huge problem of poverty and overpopulation is quite a big factor on such issue. To tell you the truth, I really want this RH Bill to be approved as soon as possible. I mean, what's wrong with proper family planning and using counter measures so as not to give birth to more and more children as years pass with thinking if the family's income is enough to feed a large number of kids. It's going to result into further damage among family members especially among the kids. And by the way, subdue means to have control so I think it's also clear that control should be done with regards to child birth. I'm pro-birth controls and contraceptive. I'm against abortion though.

Personally, I don't feel like birth control is against God's will. I feel like there are so many impoverished families that love one another very much, but just can not provide for anymore children. One can be fruitful without filling up the world with children. Most of the time, when referring to the bible, there was only one of the children out of the whole clan that was actually blessed and kept in God's favor.

hi, but i think we should better to be practical now a days because due to over population and people will only get suffer because foods,shelter will lessen and lessen while population grow,this RH bill is not a kind of killing but controlling the growth pf population. !

I´m an agnostic but in all my searches for a God, the thing I cannot accept is this humanmade God so many people believe in. Wise men wrote about mankind multiplying, when there were so little of us and so many odds against surviving that we needed more children. But now that the Earth is overpopulated, there´s no need to have unwanted children. I would never look at the Bible as the only Holy Book though. And its holiness comes from being written by wise men a long time ago. It there is a God, it must be centered in all the Creation, far beyond the Universe as we imagine it, not centered in us higher apes from planet Earth.
