The Fertility Advantage

baby-in-a-womb-pixThe American birthrate of 2.0 children per woman is slightly less than the needed replacement rate of 2.1. Social commentators have said that “homosexuals don’t reproduce; they recruit.” And, the pro-abortion movement in the U.S. has taken the lives of over 50 million babies in the past 40 years.

A culture must reproduce or die! A shrinking Christian population will not “inherit the earth” nor transform it “for the glory of God.” Fortunately, Christians tend to “choose life” and have more babies! Let secularists have their 1.3 baby birthrate, while those who value human life, the traditional family, and religious liberty gain the “fertility advantage” and become “fruitful” and “mighty in the land” (see Psalm 112:1-2, 10).

Many want huge churches, but tiny families. If the Lord tarries, children must be desired, as the shapers of the future of our world. Our Christian families must again be fruitful, fill the earth, and help make a maximum impact for the glory of God!
