Face it. If you use contraception, you are not in a position to oppose the recently-made-legal phenomenon being called ‘gay marriage.’
Christians who support a Biblical world view have a hard time wrapping their minds around this supposed redefinition of marriage.
After all, didn’t God create mankind “male and female”? (Gen 5:2).
Didn’t Christ Himself affirm that human beings were created “male and female”? (Matt 19:4, Mark 10:6).
So how then did our culture get so screwed up that a man and a man or a woman and a woman could be legally ‘married?’
IT GOES BACK TO THE CULTURE’S ACCEPTANCE OF CONTRACEPTION
How did we get where we are at?
The simple answer is that Western culture accepted the premise that married couples can use contraception.
As soon as you accept that premise, you create a cosmic tidal wave in society. We have been feeling the effects of that seismic blast for generations now.
A contracepting married couple becomes capable of breaking its marriage vows to accept and to love everything the other offers. The married couple now rejects fertility as an unwelcomed gift.
A married couple that can use contraception also becomes a married couple that can separate sex from babies. Human reason concludes marriage’s primary purpose remains the procreation and education of children. To use contraception would be a direct contradiction of the marital union.
THE RIPPLE EFFECT OF CONTRACEPTION LED TO SO-CALLED ‘GAY MARRIAGE’ BEING ACCEPTED
The effects of contraception are far and wide.
Once you accept the premise that married couples can use contraception, you have separated children from what it means to be married. It becomes an institution subject to the emotional whims of adults.
Thanks to the ubiquity of birth control use, the association of children with marriage has been all but erased. Now marriage has come to mean in the modern mind a union between any two people that may or may not be open to the next generation.
What’s more, as brilliant author, Ryan T. Anderson asserts in his article for First Things, “Redefining marriage to make it a genderless institution fundamentally changes marriage: It makes the relationship more about the desires of adults than about the needs—or rights—of children. It teaches the lie that mothers and fathers are interchangeable” (emphasis added).
Is that was those who use contraception believe? That mothers and fathers are interchangeable? Likely not many do. But that’s what the acceptance of contraception has ushered in. All because of the basic premise contraception requires you to accept: namely, that sex and babies can be separated.
On another note, the requirement to be married to engage in sterile sex simply erodes out of existence, thanks to contraception use. Ergo, high rates of promiscuity, one-night stands, and recreational sex become the norm.
And the need for the two marriage spouses to be capable of reproducing together also loses its validity.
For, if a heterosexual, married couple can use contraception to circumvent children, then what difference does it really make that a gay or lesbian couple cannot physically have children together? Hence, the legalization of sodomy becomess a federally-protected “right” called ‘marriage’ in our legal system.
And if you use contraception, who are you to argue it should be any different?
Follow my way of thinking?
Or do you have a counter argument as to how you can champion the use of birth control and still oppose so-called ‘gay marriage?’
