Recently, a Christian friend wrote to me concerning some
questions he has regarding marriage, children and birth
control. Although he has read my article entitled 'Abortion:
The Slaughter of the Innocent' several times now, it seems
that he still hasn't been able to come to any firm
conclusions in his own heart regarding these matters; thus,
in addition to seeking my advice, he has continued to delve
into the Scriptures, hoping to find the Lord's answers to
his questions.

In thinking about this situation, the first thing that
entered my mind, is that if we are going to search the
Scriptures for the truth regarding a certain matter, as did
the Bereans in the Book of Acts, we must make certain that
it is not a self-defeating process. In others words, if we
search the Scriptures with the attitude that our minds are
already made up, and we are only looking for verses which
will support what we have already chosen to believe,
regardless of what the full counsel of God might tell us,
then we are just wasting our time. Not only that, but we
also place ourselves in the potential position of falling
under delusion. In short, as I explain in other articles
which deal with finding the Will of God, such as 'What Is
God's Will For My Life?' and 'Are You Crucified With
Christ?', we must make sure that our will is aligned with
the Lord's Will, and that we are not purposely resisting the
truth which He may be trying to show us through His Word. In
his Epistle to the Romans, the Apostle Paul wrote the
following wise lines:

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And
be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Romans 12:1,2, KJV

As you can see, Paul is telling us that in order to find the
perfect Will of God, we must make sure that both our body
and our mind, is yielded to the Lord in every area. In fact,
Paul tells us that we must have a renewed mind; that is, we
must forsake our own ideas, and what we think is right, and
put on the mind of Christ, as Paul explains in this verse:

"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may
instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."
1 Corinthians 2:16, KJV

We must think and act as Christ thought, and be totally
yielded to the Will of the Father, just as Jesus was. We
must be willing to wholeheartedly accept the Lord's program,
no matter how difficult and challenging it may be, even when
it contradicts our own personal plans, and what we feel we
want to do. In the following verses, Jesus referred to this
sacrificial surrendering of our will, mind and body to the
Lord, as taking up our cross daily, in order to follow Him:

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let
him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow
me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but
whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall
save it." Luke 9:23,24, KJV

While we might be tempted to view these verses as having a
purely symbolic meaning, the truth of the matter is, that
the physical is a manifestation of the spiritual; and if we
are not willing to submit our physical bodies to God's Will,
as 'a living sacrifice' in the words of the Apostle Paul,
might this be an indication that there is something wrong
with our spiritual attitude as well? In my various articles
concerning discipleship, I make clear that God owns all of
us. We are His possessions, bought with the precious Blood
of His dear Son. As such, He can do whatever He wants with
us. The Apostle Paul says this very thing in his first
Epistle to the Corinthians:

"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy
Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not
your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify
God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
1 Corinthians 6:19,20, KJV

Notice that Paul states quite clearly 'ye are not your own',
because we are bought with a price. Because of this fact, he
says that we are to glorify God in both our body and in our
spirit, which are God's. Your body, and your spirit, belong
to God, and not to you. Do you see that? God has first
rights over you entirely. Now, if we truly believe that our
entire spiritual and physical being belongs to God, doesn't
it stand to reason that in matters regarding pregnancy and
childbirth, the only right attitude for the Christian to
have, is to place our faith in God, by allowing Him to
decide whether or not He wants us to have any children? If
children are an heritage of the Lord, as the Psalmist tells
us, is not having children one way of glorifying God in our
bodies? While we sometimes like to boast of how many
spiritual children we have had, by leading others to the
Lord, what if the Lord wants us to have His physical
children as well? In such cases, are we just as willing and
yielded to His Will? Furthermore, might it be that by
practicing some form of birth control, we are in effect
trying to pre-empt what might be the Will of God, either due
to our own lack of faith, or possibly for even more selfish

In the world today, one major issue discussed between the
sexes, concerns who has the right over a woman's body. This
argument is particularly popular with those who advocate and
promote abortion as a viable and acceptable form of birth
control. Of course, those who support this ungodly practice
refer to it as an act of personal responsibility. While many
of these ungodly, selfish women claim that they have the
final say when it comes to deciding the fate of the unborn
child they carry within, the truth of the matter is, that
God, the Creator and Giver of life, has the final say,
whether they like it, or can admit to it or not. Sadly, in
many cases, the Lord has long since been rubbed out of the
picture, and some women and couples couldn't care less what
God thinks of their selfish actions. This is the only way in
which they can effectively resist the godly conviction which
the Lord places upon their hearts; that is, by denying the
very existence of the One who created them to begin with, as
well as their unborn child.

This person went on to say that since their marriage several
years earlier, both he and his wife have felt that children
may not be a part of their future. Due to my knowledge of
the Scriptures regarding this topic, I was taken back a bit
upon reading this comment. My initial question is to ask
whether or not the Lord has specifically revealed this to
them through His Word, or if this is just their personal
desire not to have children. I was immediately reminded of
the following verse found in the Book of Psalms, which I
mentioned a moment ago. In the Book of Genesis, we also find
the phrase 'be fruitful, and multiply' five times:

"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of
the womb is his reward." Psalm 127:3, KJV

"And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply,
and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in
the earth." Genesis 1:22, KJV

"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful,
and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of
the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the
earth." Genesis 1:28, KJV

"Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee,
of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may
breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply
upon the earth." Genesis 8:17, KJV

"And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth."
Genesis 9:1, KJV

"And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and
multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of
thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;"
Genesis 35:11, KJV

How very different is the attitude in the world today where
many unyielded men and women seek to go against the Lord's
original commandment given to Adam and Eve, to His natural
Creation, to Noah after the Flood, and to Jacob. Instead of
accepting the Lord's blessing of fruitfulness in their
lives, many married couples are resorting to every physical
means possible, from 'the pill', to diaphragms, to condoms,
to rhythmic birth control, to the murderous act of abortion,
in order to reject what may be God's Will for their lives.
It is truly ironic that while some couples desire with all
of their hearts to have children, others selfishly and
coldheartedly reject this blessing in their lives. Please
notice that in the previous verse from the Book of Psalms,
we are specifically told that 'children are an heritage of
the Lord'. The word 'heritage' is derived from the Hebrew
word 'nachalah', pronounced nakh-al-aw', which means
possession, property, inheritance, heritage, portion or

In one regard, we can look at this as meaning that our
children belong to the Lord; they are His possession; and we
are merely being made temporary Earthly stewards over them.
The fact that we have even been considered worthy of bearing
and raising the children of the King, should be counted as a
great blessing, and we should take it seriously. In looking
at the additional meanings of the Hebrew word 'nakh-al-aw',
we can also consider that the number of children we have in
this life is our portion, or share, from the Lord. The word
'reward' in that same verse is derived from the Hebrew word
'sakar'. Pronounced saw-kawr', it means hire, wages, pay,
fare, fee, or passage-money. In this case, given the context
of the verse, the most likely meaning is hire. Like the
servants mentioned in Jesus' various parables found in the
four Gospels, we might say that when a wife becomes
pregnant, she has been hired by the Lord, to raise His
children properly with a knowledge of the Lord and His Word.
Sadly, as I point out in such articles as 'Plight Of The
Children', so many many parents fail at this important
God-ordained task.

Disgracefully, as we have already seen, even though they
have been hired by the Lord, many modern, selfish women,
particularly those in the United States of America, do not
want the job. As mothers-to-be, they, and their spouses,
must realize that God knows what we can each handle, and
that He will bless us accordingly. A main part of the
problem is that because so many married couples in the world
today have rejected God in their lives, they have no one in
whom they can truly place their faith and confidence, except
in themselves, and in their own abilities and human
limitations. They think that they have to do it all on their
own. In fact, they foolishly think that they can do as they
please, and that they will never have to pay the
consequences for their acts of selfishness. Someday soon,
they will realize how terribly wrong they have been. In
thinking about this, I am reminded of something the Apostle
Paul said regarding the Endtime in his second Epistle to

"Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than
lovers of God;" 2 Timothy 3:4, KJV

Surely Paul's words are right on target in describing the
attitude which is prevalent in the world today. Many people
truly are more interested in selfish, carnal, unbridled
sexual pleasures, than in pleasing the Lord. They want to
enjoy sex, but not have to pay the price of the fruit which
may result from their sexual encounters. Thus they resort to
birth control, abortion, and unhealthy relationships with
persons of the same sex in order to steer clear of the
responsibility. While the world has labeled it as 'safe
sex', might a more appropriate term be 'selfish sex'?

To add some balance to my words, allow me to state that I
know that it is common for many parents, even Christian
parents, to worry about the future; particularly when their
number of children begins to multiply. We begin to consider
such factors as the high cost of living, limited living
space, an inadequate income, the cost of a formal education,
etc. There are all kinds of seemingly 'legitimate' reasons
for us to consider the option of planned parenthood;
however, when the temptation of birth control enters our
hearts, we need to remember the following words of the
Apostle Paul found in his first Epistle to the Corinthians:

"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to
man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be
tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
1 Corinthians 10:13, KJV

This is where personal faith enters the picture. As
God-fearing Christian parents, we must place our faith fully
and totally in the Lord. We must trust so much in His love
for His children, that we know that He will take care of
every situation, if we will only give Him the time to work.
Quite often, it is when we fail to do this, and blunder
ahead in our impatience, and in our own strength and wisdom,
that we make mistakes. As I have quoted many times before:

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5,6, KJV

The wisdom found in these verses can be applied to the issue
of planned parenthood as well. The last thing that we want
to do, is to be swayed by the fearful ideas of carnal,
Earthly, godless men, who erroneously think that they alone
possess the solutions to the world's problems. This is
secular humanism to the core. Fear is the opposite of faith,
and the world today is full of many unfounded fears, some of
which are intentionally created, or at least magnified
beyond measure, for the sole purpose of controlling and
manipulating the masses. As more and more people have
rejected the Word of the Lord, faith has diminished in our
modern world, while fear and mistrust have grown; and this
is precisely what Jesus said would happen almost two
thousand years ago when He questioned:

"...Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find
faith on the earth?" Luke 18:8b, KJV

One way in which this fear is manifested, is through the
issue of overpopulation. I recall how many years ago, when I
was a wayward child of the Lord, I possessed a poster in
which the artist depicted his views concerning the future of
the world. In this grim picture, the world's inhabitable
land is occupied by an unsustainable population. The Earth's
natural resources have dwindled down to nothing. In the
painting, people are seen desperately clinging to pinnacles
above the masses, while others are engaged in hand to hand
combat in the overpopulated lowlands, as the sea slowly
encroaches upon them. Scattered throughout this mass of
humanity are seen obviously-pregnant women, which serve as a
not-so-subtle hint, as to the cause of the problem.

I am also reminded of several movies I saw about two decades
ago, which also dealt with overpopulation. For example, in
the popular sci-fi classic, 'Soylent Green', which starred
world-renown actor, Charlton Heston, we are led to believe
that the situation is going to deteriorate to such a degree,
that humanity will end up placing themselves upon the
platter. At that time, due to overpopulation, at least
according to the movie, euthanasia will have become an
acceptable practice in order to sustain a viable population
on the Earth. It is towards the end of the movie, that we
discover that those delicious little green tablets referred
to as 'Soylent Green', are actually made from the
re-processed bodies of those who have patriotically and
dutifully undergone euthanasia. Nothing goes to waste!

The movie 'Logan's Run', starring British actor Michael
York, also employed a very fiendish, as well as deceptive,
form of population control. In this case, upon reaching the
age of thirty, the controlled inhabitants of an encapsulated
city are obligated to undergo a so-called process of
rejuvenation. Our smart protagonist soon discovers that more
people are participating in the process, than are actually
coming out of it alive. To his horror, he realizes that
rather than being rejuvenated, his friends are actually
being zapped out of existence by a laser beam; and thus
begins their flight to freedom, and the natural world
outside of their domed artificial prison.

Finally, in 'ZPG: Zero Population Growth', British actor
Oliver Reed and his wife become fugitives in a futuristic
society, when they decide to have a child without the
approval of the government authorities, who remain anonymous
throughout the movie. This movie employs a lot of fear, such
as a dark smoggy sky which requires the use of a gas mask
when one is out in public, helicopters with bright lights
and authoritative voices which boom out orders over
megaphones to the offenders, and traitorous friends who
become jealous when the couple has their 'illegal' child,
while they are forced to be content with robotic dolls which
talk and act like the real thing. As in 'Logan's Run',
rather than give up their precious child, the couple embarks
on a flight to freedom; and the movie ends with them
obtaining it far away from the oppressive government.

It is interesting to note that all three of these movies are
British productions; a land which obviously has limited
natural resources, due to the fact that the British Isles
are really large islands which must rely upon some imports
for their survival. This then, is Satan's dark and fearful
picture of the future, but it is not what God truly has in
store for His children whom He loves. To suggest that the
Lord would create this wonderful world, and we His children,
and then allow it to deteriorate to such a degree without
any form of Divine Intervention, is not only ludicrous, but
it manifests a total lack of faith in the love and caring
attitude of our Creator. God truly shall intervene, but in
His chosen time, and not until man has come to the end of
his rope, and learned a few important lessons. While some
people may not understand this, to allow a child to learn
from his foolish mistakes is a form of parental love. Jesus
Christ Himself, explained His Father's loving attitude in
the Sermon on the Mount when He said:

"Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one
of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of
your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of
more value than many sparrows." Luke 12:6-7, KJV

It is through mediums such as these movies, that the devil's
children slowly mold and manipulate the public psyche, and
pressure people, even God's children, into accepting what
they refer to as personal responsibility, for their actions.
For the foolish children of the world, accepting personal
responsibility seems to include taking matters of life and
death into their own hands through birth control and
abortion. This places Christians in an awkward position.
While we wish to be responsible for our actions, including
our sexual actions, we do not wish to defy the natural laws
ordained by our Creator. Because of this fact, we place
ourselves at odds with the children of the world who have
chosen to not follow the Divine Guidelines.

So what is the proper attitude of the God-fearing married
Christian? In my view, if the Lord blesses us with a certain
number of children, then we must also have the faith that if
we are earnestly seeking to please Him above all, that He
will open the right doors, and provide us with the means to
support and raise those children for His glory. As the
Apostle Paul also wrote:

"But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those
of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse
than an infidel." 1 Timothy 5:8, KJV

As children of the King, we are each a part of God's holy
Household. We are His sons and daughters. Surely, the
Creator of the universe is more than able, and willing, to
provide our needs when we are pleasing in His sight, no
matter how many children we may have. Please consider the
following verses:

"Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but
fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of
God;" Ephesians 2:19, KJV

"Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot
save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:"
Isaiah 59:1, KJV

"Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart." Psalm 37:4, KJV

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:19, KJV

As I have testified in other articles, and personally
witnessed in my own life, where God guides, He also
provides. The Lord is not one to say, 'This is the way; walk
ye in it', and then not provide for His children along that
way. It is through His provision, that we know that we are
in His Will. Of course, the Lord may also test our faith a
little, to see if we are still willing to believe and obey,
even when things seem contrary to what we expect. However,
if there is one thing of which I am certain, it is that we
are not to worry about the future. To do so, is totally
contrary to the teachings of our Lord who said:

"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow
shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto
the day is the evil thereof." Matthew 6:34, KJV

While the Lord may sometimes give us glimpses of the future,
even our own future, for the most part, as far as the
Christian walk is concerned, it is usually a matter of blind
faith. We must be willing to sign the dotted line on our
blank contract with the Lord, and then allow Him to fill in
the details, according to what He knows is best for us, even
when it comes to having children. When we begin to try to
control our own future, such as when it comes to matters of
birth control, we are placing faith in ourselves, instead of
in God. In fact, we may be placing our will above God's
Will. Instead of stating that children may not be a part of
one's future, it is better to say along with Jesus and
James, 'Lord, Your Will be done, and not mine', and that
takes a lot of faith. Consider the following verses:

"Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in
heaven." Matthew 6:10, KJV

"And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and
prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup
pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou
wilt...He went away again the second time, and prayed,
saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me,
except I drink it, thy will be done."
Matthew 26:39, 42, KJV

"Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh
away the first, that he may establish the second."
Hebrews 10:9, KJV

"Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into
such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell,
and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the
morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that
appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For
that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and
do this, or that." James 4:13-15, KJV

This attitude of 'If the Lord will', is found throughout the
Bible. Unlike many hardhearted people of our modern era, who
do everything possible to try to explain everything
rationally, or scientifically, thus keeping God totally out
of the picture, the God-fearing Israelites of old attributed
all things to the Will of God. Whether it was blessings or
curses, such as having children, or being barren, or having
good weather or bad, or being victorious over their enemies,
or else being defeated by the same, they knew, realized and
accepted that all things came from the Hand of God, and that
He was the source of all things. God was central to their
lives, and all things, good or bad, happened according to
His perfect Will. Consider the following examples which deal
specifically with the issue of childbearing:

"And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he
said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly
return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo,
Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the
tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were
old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah
after the manner of women. Therefore Sarah laughed within
herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure,
my lord being old also? And the LORD said unto Abraham,
Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear
a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the LORD?
At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to
the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son."
Genesis 18:9-14, KJV

"And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the
Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and
bare not. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman,
and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest
not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now therefore
beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink,
and eat not any unclean thing: For, lo, thou shalt conceive,
and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the
child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he
shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the
Philistines." Judges 13:2-5, KJV

"And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast
found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in
thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name
JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the
Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of
his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob
for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then
said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know
not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The
Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the
Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy
thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of
God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also
conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month
with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall
be impossible." Luke 1:30-37, KJV

Notice that in two cases, we have women who were barren, and
in the third case, we have a young woman who was not even
married yet. These were three impossible situations. They
knew it, and everyone else knew it as well. Based upon
modern scientific reasoning, and our understanding of
conception, we can also agree, that given the situation in
which each of these women found themselves, they simply
could not have become pregnant by normal or acceptable
means. Two of them were too old, and one had never had sex
before. It required a miracle; it required the Will of God;
and it required the Hand of God. Why were these messengers
able to proclaim such messages? It was because, in the words
of the Angel Gabriel, 'For with God nothing shall be
impossible'. These messengers knew that the process of
becoming pregnant was not merely the result of the physical
act of having sex with a person; it also required the key
factor of being God's Will. In the life of the Christian,
unless God's Will is present, it simply will not happen; but
if it is His Will, then a conception will occur. It is for
this reason that the Psalmist was inspired to write:

"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in
my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul
knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when
I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest
parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet
being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were
written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet
there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16, KJV

So you see, in God's Mind, you might say that we His
children are pre-fabricated. In His Mind, He has already
designed us. He knows exactly what we are supposed to look
like, even before we have actually been formed in our
mother's womb! Based upon these Scriptural facts, these
cold-hearted people who argue about when life actually
begins, in order to justify their murder of the unborn
innocent, are blatant liars and deceivers! This is precisely
as we are told it would be in the Endtime, for the Apostle
Paul wrote:

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived." 2 Timothy 3:13, KJV

Returning for a moment to the attitude of 'If the Lord
will', when Mary was informed of her soon-coming pregnancy,
what was her reaction? Did she say to the Angel 'What do you
mean?! You can't do that to me God! What will people think?!
What will Joseph think?! We aren't even officially married
yet! They'll call me a whore and a slut!' Or did Mary get
all uptight and think about the soon-coming loss of her
personal freedom and say 'I'm sorry, Lord, but I am not
ready for this. I am young. I haven't enjoyed life yet.
Becoming pregnant would be too much of an inconvenience for
me at this time. Maybe later, okay Lord? You understand,
don't you Lord?' Or did Mary argue 'Listen Lord. I am a
working woman. I am very career-oriented. I have worked very
hard to make it this far in life, and I really can't be
bothered with becoming pregnant right now.' NO!!! Mary was
so yielded to the Lord that she simply said to Gabriel:

"...Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according
to thy word. And the angel departed from her."
Luke 1:38, KJV

Simply put, Mary accepted the message from her Angelic
Visitor as being the Will of God. She didn't fight against
it like a lot of these so-called 'liberated women' do today.
She accepted her God-ordained, and God-given role as a
mother-to-be. Some people reading this may consider these
views to be 'old-fashioned', but they are Scripture-based;
They are the Word of God; so if there is any error in
thinking, it is on the part of those who would dare to call
God a liar, and His inspired Word a lie.

In the second part of this three-part series, we will
continue our discussion by taking a look at such topics as
becoming one flesh, Pharaoh and his devious plan, sacrifices
to Molech, Herod's mass murder, Satan - the destroyer of
God's children, modern child sacrifices, Michal's curse,
