Review of the Birth Control Movie

What is the Birth Control Movie?
Take the time to watch their trailers...

BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here? Trailer 1 from The Birth Control Movie on Vimeo.

BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here? Trailer 2 from The Birth Control Movie on Vimeo.

Birth Control the Movie is unlike any documentary out their on this topic. It truly walks through the transition within history where Christians truly did see contraception as sin, and stood on the biblical principles of being fruitful and multiply and how it changed within the mind of Christians which in turn has effected and integrated itself within the Christian church.

It also shows how the ungodly, godless woman who founded plan parenthood used Christianity to her benefit and to help turn the minds of those in influence to discretely condone "family planning".

If you ever wondered how these things became a part of the church, how abortion, birth control, integrated into our foundation, and how the question of "how many children should we have?" even entered the church. This film, is insightful, and full of information.

Thank you to those who put this together o bring to those who need it!( the Church)

new season

We are entering into a new season.. not weather wise though I am anxious to see spring arrive. This season has to do with spiritual things. One that brings so many challenges to us all and one which we have tried so hard to honor Christ in.

One of our sons has decided to court a young lady, one in which he has known of for years, and when he was young had very strong feelings for. He started this process with emotions I believe based on the past in which he had for this young lady when he was like 14 years old and not biblically keeping emotions out of it till he knew for sure.

From the very beginning this "union" has been difficult and has had many obsticles thrown in its way. One being we believe that courtship should involve both sets of parents, but her parents have decided he wanted  no part of it. His protest had to do with the color of his skin. Though I do not think he has wavered much in this area, he has decided to dismiss responsibility or involvement in stating that she is an adult and has never sought his approval before why start now, and by seeking his approval and involvement makes it sound like a prearranged marriage. Of course that brought up our first concern and red flag.

Secondly, my son is willing to do whatever he needs to spend time with her. Whether it be a small amount of time or a great amount of time.. he goes to great efforts to do it. She on the other hand is unwilling to make any sacrifices. She is unwilling to make any changes to her life to accommodate the courtship. She is trying to fit this in to her "already full" and very busy life. (second red flag)

Already they have experienced arguments and he has experienced great frustration with her, and they have just started and have barely spent any face time with each other. She has deceived and lied to him,(third red flag) stating to him that she was going to the mall with a friend and it turned out to be with a young man that always has had feelings for her, but she doesn't like him that way. (she made sure to state)

All these things make me think what are you not seeing ? Why aren't you running in the other direction? You keep asking the Lord to show you clearly, is it just me but I think he is showing you quite clearly the answers but it is not what you want to hear because you have feelings for her. It reminds me so much of the parable or story of the man drowning...

There once was a man stranded in the middle of the ocean. His ship had crashed and he was left with nothing but the clothes on his back and a slowly deflating air tube. So in this hopeless situation, he prayed, "God, please bring me a miracle! Rescue me! Send angels to help me! Get me out of here!". No more than five minutes later, a boat came by to rescue the man; but the man didn't get in the boat. When asked to get in he simply replied, "I don't need your boat! God is going to save me". So the ship went on. Exactly an hour later, a helicopter flew right above the man. The man in the helicopter begged the desperate man to climb into the safe helicopter, but the man just replied, “No! God is going to save me!". So the helicopter went on. After another hour of floating aimlessly in the ocean, the man noticed a small island off in the distance. As he began to drift towards it he rapidly started paddling the opposite way, thinking, "I don't want to be on that island, God is going to save me!”. Shortly after that, the man drowns. Once he got through the proverbial pearly gates of heaven, he went straight up to God, infuriated about his death. "Why didn't you save me like I asked?", the man said in frustration. God just looked at the man, and replied by saying, "I sent you a boat, a helicopter and an island! Why didn't you use them??"

So tell me what do I do as a mother let him drown? Let him die in this relationship because he refuses to see the truth, refuses to adhere to counsel... refuses to be guided... Lord help me because I know you have shown me what you have shown me to bring them forth in Your glory and Your will.. but our will.. our flesh always gets in the way. Guide me Father as I seek your truth.

Sisters.. I know there are some of you who read and have wisdom please please please share!
