Is contraception a sin?

This question wasn't really an issue until the 20th century (year 1901 and afterwards). These days the wicked and the ungodly claim that there's no problem with the birth control. Let's think about the topic for a moment!

The creation

Everything started from the paradise where God announced the curse upon the serpent, saying:

15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel. (Genesis.3)

Now it's clear that the devil himself got to know that there will be one who crushes his head. To protect himself, he was against all children being born into the world. Who would like his head being crushed? Nobody. There wasn't more information about who that would be, so every one being born was a threat to the devil. Now that Jesus Christ is in the heaven, the devil knows that the world will end one day - he has read the scriptures. He thinks that by advertising contraception less people will inherit the eternal kingdom. He might even think that by attracting people in his ways, the final judgement will not apply - he wishes he can avoid the verdict. Moreover, one should understand that every child is a believer when born, like Lord Jesus has enlightened:

15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. (Luke 18, KJV)

Powerless god

In these last days people are worshipping powerless gods that are made of bronze and wood. These gods don't have any idea about how many children a married couple should have. In addition, these pagan gods don't know what's best for their worshippers. Thus, these people take the rights on their hand: they have to design their family sizes based on their very own knowledge. They might think they believe in God but they confess, although implicitly, that their god is a powerless creature. These wicked people wish to be smarter that the living God. Wicked are their ways and many are following them. Don't they have any idea that this kind of a road goes straight to hell? They might even claim that they don't have money to raise the children, or that they are depressed - there's a great number of excuses.

A gift from God

Children are a gift of God. What does a gift mean to you?

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. (Ps.127, NAS).

Isn't it something you wish to receive with joy? Is such a thing a gift anymore, if you don't wish to receive it? It becomes a curse instead - an unwanted gift. One must be really twisted to claim that a gift becomes a curse! If Santa Claus is giving you a gift, aren't you happy with it? Understand that a gift from heaven is much more precious than one from the Santa Claus! Childred are a good example, they gladly receive the gifts they're given, even if an adult may not always like gathering temporal stuff. The heavenly Father hands out heavenly gifts, and the one not receiving will surely offend him! If you were giving a present to someone and he just says it's something he doesn't want even before opening it, wouldn't you be also offended? It's like claiming: I know you fool, I don't need your gifts!

Early Church opinion

John Chrysostom (347-407) mentioned that birth control is even worse than a murder (Homilies on Romans 24). Similar was the opinion among the Christians. Even ancient Egyptians had means to perform contraception (The Ebers Papyrus from 1550 BCE and the Kahun Papyrus from 1850 BCE), see the wiki "History of birth control" for more details. In other words, contraceptive methods were present also during the early church.

Almighty God

It's an honour and a source of inexpressible joy that the Almighty God, the living God, the God of Abraham, Iisac and Jacob takes care of his children. There's no need for contraception as He knows better than us the amount of childred we're supposed to get. He gives just as many children that's best for us. If someone is worried that there's too many people on Earth - don't fall into this trap - as if this really become an issue some day, the Almighty God can make more room for us upon the planet earth. It's the living God that can perform such miracles.

Maybe you're asking whether it's a sin to use birth control? I wouldn't dare to stand against the creation - that's the work of Satan that started in the Paradise. Don't stand in his flock! He is only deceiving you. Following him is the way to hell.

Contraception and the law

The words "Be fruitful" (Gen.1:28) means that a person who trusts the living God takes all the children that are given. By using birth control mechanisms, it's not possible to be fruitful! Accepting only a few childred one declares that she/he is partially fruitful - not completely. Likewise, it means the person doesn't love God from all his heart!
