Most Christian couples enter marriage accepting the culture's view on birth control, without even questioning its history or morality. Birth control is just the means to an end, child limitation.
But Christian couples should not only consider if our actions are abortifacient, but we must question our heart motives. Instead of assuming the liberty of birth control, we must first question the morality of birth control.
We must look to see if controlling birth fits within our calling to be a witness before a lost and dying world. We must ask if our desire to control procreation displays an accurate picture of the gospel in our marriages.
The most important question Christian couples should be asking is “is the end acceptable, regardless of the means?” Abortifacient or not, is child limitation acceptable before God for modern Christians?
Once we agree on the validity of this question, a proper debate can begin. That debate must not look to emotionalism, nature, or our culture, but instead we must look to Scripture, the Word of God, by searching its pages and gleaning its wisdom in order to learn how God has called us to live.
