How the church promotes having children out of wedlock
At first glance at the title, you might think that there is no way the church will knowingly promote such a thing... and you would be right. They are doing it unconsciously. I was at the local christian fellowship on campus around valentine. And of course the topic of the day was relationships. They had people write questions on a piece of paper to ask the panel (consisted of 4 students, a boyfriend/girlfriend and 2 single people of the opposite sex). At first people where asking punk ass questions like, how can i find the person of my dreams and other fairy tale questions. Then they messed up and let me and my friends get in our questions. I wont go through all the questions we asked except for one.
I dont remember how the question came up but it consisted of whether as a christian male we should carry around a condom. We knew what the answer would be but we wanted to spice up the event. Well one of the responses was, you shouldnt because when you buy the condom that means you are intending to use it, intending to sin. One other guy in the crowd said he leaves his own in the car so that he has to go all the way over to the car to get it, and by the time he walks to the car he would have been able to think it through and not do it. And everyone was commenting on his genius. I think to myself, what if the thing is about to happen in the car, what will you do? Or lets say he tell the chick he has to go get the condom and then she says dont worry i got one. Wetin he go do?
I have noticed christian organizations have a problem talking about protection, it is all about abstinence. They wont even fund programs that talk about protection, they say it leads to promiscuity. They forget that we are all human, that we are made in "His" Image not a carbon copy. We will fall, and if we dont know how to fall safely, we will dislocate/fracture/sprain/bruise our lives. Talking to my fellow christian compatroits and i realize a lot of them are ignorant about sexual stuff. I pray that some guy/girl does not use this ignorance and do them bad thing. Because the thing i have found out is that it is harder to remain a virgin/celibate because it says so in the bible than it is when you are doing it because you want to. For me, knowing i am doing it because i choose to made it so much easier.
Back to the title, the church's refusal to talk about protection leads to babies being born out of wedlock. Because they do not want to be a bad christian, they wont buy the condom or learn how to put it on properly or go on the pill. Because they are a good christian after they "fall" they will pray to God to forgive them instead of going to walgreens and buying that plan B. Because they are a good christian they wont have an abortion. Because they are good christians they will have a beautiful bouncing baby out of wedlock. Church- 1 Christian- 0
wetin una think?
