Clearing Things Up

You would think people would read my sidebar where it states I don't post for debates and I don't approve comments as such. Yet, you always have those who want to stir up whatever they can.....sigh. CLEAR up what others may have took to mean something else let me make myself clear on the bearing children issue. Since I have received many comments from both sides and accusations, of which were grounded on them not reading the ENTIRE post or other posts about the same topic......let's set my stance straight here:

I do not take birth control pills.

I personally, don't take birth control and believe its wrong especially when taken with the motive of "I don't care what God wants, I'm not having kids" attitude. Take that up with him, but as for us, we don't take the actual pills because of research that shows it can kill an actual pregnancy and you won't even know it. I don't want to risk killing a fertilized egg and I don't care how you think they are safe.......I don't even want to get near the gray area!

Next, I also do not stand with those who let the babies come whenever. God has a plan, and wants us to use wisdom and do things according to HIS will. You should seek God in all things.

Also if the mother would die or is medically unable to bear a pregnancy, then HELLO should not try for one. There are methods that do not have chances of killing already fertilized eggs that you can use to prevent pregnancy in these situations and when it isn't God's timing. Those methods, I agree with.....I don't think we really need to go into detail about that.

I have prayed over the years to have children when it is God's will and ONLY when it is his will. Our first child was purely at a time when God opened my womb! I was sterile and unable to have children but after praying, God blessed and my miracle baby was born! HALLELUJAH!

Of course when I say God's will, I'm talking about the is his will for women to bear children but I also want to do it in HIS timing, when it is right.

So there you have it.....and no I didn't publish the comments and most of the time I don't even finish reading them if the first few words are debate-style. Just stating where I stand, so there is no confusion.

Thanks for the comment!

Hey...don't forget me!!! I wanna go for coffee!!! :-(

It's amazing people are still commenting about the birth control thing.
I honestly think people troll blogs looking for hot button issues like that or submission or modesty, etc even if the post is a few weeks or months old just so they can chime in their $0.02.

It's those issues that are 'controversial' so of course they get more traffic than say a post about washing

We have to do what God is telling us to do. We have to, as the Psalm says 'Be still and know that I am God'. We have to be still and listen for God's voice in the midst of our noisy lives so He can speak to us and direct us on the right path.

As Christians, our lives are not our own. The Bible says we were bought with a price. We belong to the Lord and it should be up to Him how we live our lives everyday.
Who are we to say, 'well I don't care if the Bible says we are supposed to have long hair, I like mine short' or 'I'm not going to go soul winning because I'm tired'.
If it's in God's Word, it's our duty as His servants to obey!

Sorry this is a little wordy...

Monday blessings to you Bev!

Hey Dawn, if you lived closer we could lol. ;)

So true what you said! Most likely it was a troll who visits blogs just to cause a ruckus.

The thing people don't realize about me is that I DO NOT blog to please! I don't do this for the applause of others or to be popular, I simply blog to please God and the righteous are bold as a lion is what my Bible says, maybe people need to put down their perversion version and pick up the good ole' KJV! ;0

I hope I am not the troll to which you are referring. I enjoy you blog and though you would want to hear the thoughts of others even if they didn't agree entirely with you.
I certainly didn't want to argue about it. I just wanted to say what I thought. If I am the person you consider a troll please let me know and I won't bother you again. Blessings, Leticia

Christian Homekeeper said...

No Ticia, you are not the troll! This person, is one that goes from blog to blog spreading trouble for the fun of it. To them I guess its fun lol. They left various comments that were in spite.

I really don't ask for others critique of my posts, that is why I didn't approve one of your comments. I do appreciate that you read and it is up to you if you want to continue to read but my writing is what it is and I don't worry what others think but God. I also prayed about my choice in wording and I didn't change anything. Hope that helps.
