It’s a Sad State in Our Culture

when people begin to defend their reasons for not wanting children, as if children are a terrible, undesirable thing.

And these reasons are ones you have heard your friends saying!  They are reasons I have actually heard defended!  Apparently things like the perceived poor behavior of children, their supposedly low intellect, and the loss of the sex drive of the mother are reasons that now have traction!  What a pile of pride these reflect! These kinds of reasons show the selfisness and arrogance not only of those who speak them, but of all who agree with them.  What a poor example of manhood (and womanhood) indeed.

I would suggest that these child-haters grow up and learn some wisdom, namely, that we must see ourselves as children before the Creator (Matt. 18:3), and that God so designed children and the family to humble us into seeing our need for Him in serving each other (Phil. 2:3-4) rather than running around trying to gratify our own sinful desires.
