    Luther wrote that birth control was the equivalent of sodomy (probably because of the likeness between homosexual wickedness and impotent sex).

    Calvin declared that birth control was the murder of future persons and the Synod of Dordt issued a Bible commentary which stated that contraception was the same as abortion.

    If you are shocked, by the strong statements from these Godly men, that really is not too surprising, because Protestant opposition to birth control has largely been forgotten in our decadent 21th century.

    This book proclaims Biblical principles which oppose contraception, as well as the historic testimony of the church on this important subject.

    It even includes the section of Calvin's Commentary, on this subject, which the later editors edited out - which in part reads,

    "The voluntary spilling of semen outside of intercourse... is a monstrous thing... For this is to... kill before he is born the hoped for offspring."

    John Calvin's full comments, which where edited out (in his commentary on Genesis 38:8-10, regarding birth control) by later editors, and are also translated at the link below, into English, from the original Latin.

    "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward" (KJV, Ps. 127:3).

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    I just wanted to say that I dont believe in birth control. How I found this book was because of my back sliding. I am 25 years old and have three children and just found out I am pregant. I wanted to encourage women that this is a way to become truly broken and devoted to God. This is a womens job of course. Our society doesnt show it that way at all anymore. Its all about being a "strong woman". Aren't we strong by raising are children as well? Women we must be like how God wants us to be that is the woman in Proverbs 31. Truly this is hard work but our husbands work hard as well. Don't you want your children call you blessed and your husband to give you praise? This is the walk with God it is not easy. "Experience is a tough teacher HE gives you the test first and the lesson afterward." I wish to hear from women who have listen to this sermon. If you need encouragement (we all do) please feel free to email me. It will enlighten me to hear your experience. May God Bless all who open their ears to GOD.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    I have just listened to the first part series of the Bible and Birth Control. It has been very positive and reaffirming for me as a new reciever of Jesus Christ. Now it pains my heart when I hear of fellow christians talking about birth contol like the natural order of things. As a new(young 23) christian in Christ, I dont say anything during these kind of discussions, as most of the time I am quite outnumbered and these other christians are much older and further down the path in spiritual maturity than I am. So I am really puzzled at their deliberate workings to hinder the blessings of God. It will also be very sad if my husband decides to practice birth control(he is an unbeliever) knowing that he will be wasting his seed, but I will be praying about these issues. I plan on and look foward to listening to the remaining sermons in this series. May God be with you.
