Do you think we should be told to not have children? Are you pregnant, have a toddler/child, a tween or teen, or getting ready to have a grandchild…maybe a child in the future? This is what the Environmentalist World View is propagating. It is not the Worldview of God. It is of Earth Worship. Be careful.
Yes, we are to care for and steward the earth. Tend to it and not abuse it…but this is not just about caring for the environment. This Worldview has an agenda. It tempts with movies such as Avatar, and is steeped in our culture. However, it seeks to pervert the truth, to control our lives and usher in Global Management…ultimately indoctrinating us away from God.
The inspiration for this blog post comes from an article by Grist that I have shared at the end of my blog post here. The following is one of many comments to the link I have posted below.
“Let the breeders have kids. Who cares? They are delayed abusers who are giving birth to people who will not have enough food or water in the future. It that’s their selfish legacy, than so be it.”
After reading the article and reading several comments, such as the one I just shared, I finally saw a comment I appreciated.
“Take a step higher. Take your selfout. Save room for my kids. No point being here right? Dumbest f’k-tard.
The basic primordial motivation of any life form – eat, live, reproduce. It’s science. Otherwise you’re a abomination by choice.”
Of course this rebuttal was steeped in sarcasm, however it spewed truth.
Here’s my response!
“I usually don’t comment on posts like this, especially in its clear opposition to my worldview, but I appreciate your comment and it should already have more likes. Your “argument” is the most compelling in this forums view.
It’s not only about freedom of choice (to have our children) which we should hold dear, but it is the very essence of who we are. We can chalk this up to an educated decision to “save the planet”…but I would never subscribe to a view that has humans not bring able to take part in life, as well as making us, never mind equal, but less than all other life forms.
Some of us here calling what we do as “breeding” is another abomination. God help us all when we choose to stop souls from being born. Some of you are essentially saying to “get off the planet”. This is not fixing the problem at its root.
Everyone has value…no one less than the other.
This argument of “non-breeding” should not be utilizing the “bate of adoption”….clearly we need to care for other children as well. Adoption is fundamentally important.
If you choose not to have children, so be it. Children are not the problem. Greed and control are. Control is what is happening here, at the very least, toyed with.
I know these next scriptures will not be tolerated well by many…still must share.
*****”Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late, To eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.
((((((Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;)))))
They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate.”*****
Psalms 127:1-5 NASB
*****”How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways. When you shall eat of the fruit of your hands, You will be happy and it will be well with you. (((((Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine Within your house, Your children like olive plants Around your table.)))))
Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed Who fears the LORD. The LORD bless you from Zion, And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. Indeed, may you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!”*****
Psalms 128:1-6 NASB
*****”Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
(((((God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it;)))))
and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.””*****
Genesis 1:26-28 NASB
To anyone livid at the usage of the word SUBDUE in Genesis 1, look at the link below.
*****””As for you, be fruitful and (((((multiply; Populate the earth abundantly and multiply in it))))).” Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying, “Now behold, I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your descendants after you; and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you; of all that comes out of the ark, even every beast of the earth.”*****
Genesis 9:7-10 NASB
No scripture, no Prophet, not even Jesus Himself has ever said to stop reproducing.
Every soul/spirit matters. We collectively are giving to much heed to the seen, as opposed to the unseen realms. There is much needed to be done spiritually that our new brothers and sisters being born are purposed for.
We are called to be stewards of the earth yes, not destroy it. However, we are not called to Worship it. Some of us environmentalists despise the notion of sacrificing human blood for a god. However, every child not being allowed to be born for the sake of Gaia is not far off from that sacrifice.
Let us allow the next 7 generations to live…even if we don’t have that much time here. Only guarantee is today. Treasuring, nurturing, helping, loving, sustaining, living.”
