An Evangelical Presbyterian Church pastor points out the sharp contrast between American Presbyterian churches and Malawian Presbyterian churches. The Malawian churches are fairly bursting with children, while the American churches are sterile, barren, and dying. He blames homosexuality and abortion. But what about the birth control bill and the abortifacients? What about the existentialist worldview that has seeped into American Christianity? There is also the almost-inevitable generational apostasy happening with White Gentile Christianity in America, Canada, and Europe. Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner talk about what to do when the glory is departing, and apostasy is raging in your generations.
Great Sermon! Although Barrenness and Sterility have always been associated with the death of a Christian family, most no longer even care. Planned barrenness is the modern expectation even for the most conservative married Christian. However, the earliest 1st Century Bible commentary's opening sentence puts this intentional sterility in context: "There are two ways: one of life and one of death; and the difference between the two ways is great." In other words, intentional "Barren American Presbyterians" are in diametric opposition to this way of life, the way of the Gospel. How can the PCA, the CRC and the EPC on one hand say they love Christ but on the other despise the fertility that He gave them? Any denomination that allows birth control or abortifacients, embraces the way of death, intentionally participates in its own extinction, and, in the final analysis, does not love Jesus. If you're following this way of life, how can you pop the Pill everyday and consider yourself saved?
