What does the Bible say about contraception?
If they can’t find a ‘no’ in the new testament on what they feel should be ‘no’ they dive into the old testament to find some old law put upon the Jews, not to Christians, to fool or please you. Jews were told to multiply and therefore it was a sin for them to spill semen.
Christ brought the new testament and has said nothing about contraception and so it is lawful to use contraception. He was surely was capable to tell us 2000 years ago, in his own words or parables, his desire that we refrain from contraception – but he did not do so. Remember, God would not send his messiah to execute incomplete works and leave the rest to corruptible menkind to concoct. We are told all we need to know to find a better life on earth and salvation in heaven; even biblical errors he did not allow to be of such a nature that they could affect our salvation, would we follow them.
We are not forced to born children if we can’t afford to raise them; nor are we forced to discomfort our self by bearing kids we are not ready for. Could we prevent this?
Such ways are from men, Nicolaitans for example. Remember the incident of circumcision in Acts 15:5 where we were almost to be made subject to this Jewish law. So know that when kids are born to Christians while they’re not ready, they must put faith in him and spend much time in prayer for his support in the name of Jesus Christ, for it is him who bestowed the child upon you.
If you wish to use a permanent contraceptive, it is also allowed, as Christ did not say anything about that either. Suppose this contradicted the law, would not monks, nuns and celibates-by-choice contradict the law also? What is the difference between those refraining from begetting children and you taking a contraceptive?
Baptism the commandments of God, not those of men. Contraceptives may be used but, do mind, if you use them in fornication, why do you inquire?
What does the Bible say about the morning-after pill?
The ovarian follicle develops and begins emitting the hormone Oestrogen (which causes the uterine lining to thicken so that it will be ready to accept a fertilized egg). Just before ovulation, the ovaries also secrete progesterone, this for about two weeks.
The hypothalamus and pituitary gland sense the level of Oestrogen rising in the blood. When the level is high enough, the pituitary gland releases luteinizing hormone (LH). This hormone tells the follicle to release the egg into the fallopian tube. Sperm can fertilize this newly released egg during a 24-hour window.
If sperm fertilizes the egg during that 24-hour window, and if conditions are right, the fertilized egg implants itself into the thickened uterine lining and the woman is pregnant. If the egg goes unfertilized or if something prevents implantation, the woman does not become pregnant.
How does the pill or 3-monthly injections work?
Morning-after pills contain hormones to stop ovaries releasing eggs. They also make the womb slippery so that fertilized eggs can’t stick to it, and so the eggs can’t develop into a baby.
So it either:
a) stops ovaries releasing eggs
b) prevents fertilized eggs from sticking to the uterine, where they grow into an embryo.
As a fertilized egg without the uterine cannot bring forth life, it is not complete to accept the inflow of life, and so it just disappears if it can not stick to the uterine.
As the fertilized egg, therefore, is not complete to produce life, it merely has the potential to accept life; but it does not live, which is proven by its inevitable death, without human intervention, when it does not stick to the uterine.
As what does not live cannot be murdered, you may use the morning-after pill.
