The point I wish to make from sharing all of the previous
Scriptures, is that when the Lord spoke of men becoming
eunuchs for the sake of the Kingdom of God, I tend to
believe that He may primarily have been referring to men who
chose to forsake sexual pleasures with women, and thus
marriage, before they actually became joined to a wife, and
not afterwards. There is a big difference in timing here,
and this understanding seems to be more in line with the
rest of the Scriptures, and does not contradict them.
Whether Jesus was actually referring to a man physically
becoming a eunuch through the process of castration, or
whether He was merely implying spiritual castration through
abstention from sexual relationships with women, I honestly
cannot say. The Greek lexicon states that the Greek word
used here, 'eunouchos', can apply to both. As both Jesus and
the Apostle Paul tell us, the primary reason that certain
men choose to become eunuchs, is so that they will not
become distracted by their sexual desire towards women,
which might ultimately result in marriage, and lead to the
responsibility of raising children, etc. In this way, they
can better dedicate themselves to the Lord's service. In his
first Epistle to the Corinthians, Paul made this quite clear
when he wrote the following. Notice his reference to
'trouble in the flesh' and 'without distraction':

"But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a
virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall
have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you...But I would
have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth
for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please
the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that
are of the world, how he may please his wife. There is
difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried
woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be
holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married
careth for the things of the world, how she may please her
husband. And this I speak for your own profit; not that I
may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and
that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction."
1 Corinthians 7:28, 32-35, KJV

In short, it is difficult to seek first the Kingdom of God,
as Jesus commanded us to do in the Sermon on the Mount, when
we have family responsibilities which take up our time and
our attention, and which drain us of our strength; and this
of course includes satisfying our spouse, as well as our own
flesh, sexually. In this regard, I suppose that I can be
considered a spiritual eunuch; being as since about nine
years ago, I too determined that I could no longer afford to
have a sexual relationship in my life. In fact, since about
seven years ago, I have refrained from having any personal
relationship with a woman. In my mind, time is too short,
and I simply have too much to accomplish for the Lord. I now
strive to keep His Word, and His Work, as the primary focus
in my life. In a sense, as I told a dear friend recently,
you might say that I have also taken the vow of a Nazarite
since this ministry began. Paul may have had the vow of a
Nazarite in mind when he wrote the previous lines, because
this vow can apply to both men and women who dedicate
themselves to the Lord. For a better understanding of the
vow of a Nazarite, please read Numbers chapter six.

While some of you may be a bit surprised to discover this
particular aspect regarding my personal life, the decision
to keep myself from women for the remainder of my life is
nevertheless a disciplinary choice I have freely made in
order to further the Kingdom of God. It is definitely not
for all men, and not all men can exercise such self-control.
The Apostles Peter and Paul both spoke of this self-control
of one's emotions and sexual drive, or libido, in the
following verses. Here it is referred to as 'temperance':

"And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in
all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown;
but we an incorruptible." 1 Corinthians 9:25, KJV

"For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not
selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker,
not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a
lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;"
Titus 1:7-8, KJV

"And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith
virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge
temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience
godliness;" 2 Peter 1:5,6, KJV

In the previous sets of verses, the words 'temperate' and
'temperance' are derived from three related Greek words. The
first of these is the word 'egkrateuomai'. Pronounced
eng-krat-yoo'-om-ahee, the Greek lexicon defines it as

----- Begin Quote -----

1) to be self-controlled, continent
1a) to exhibit self-government, conduct, one's self
1b) in a figure drawn from athletes, who in preparing
themselves for the games abstained from unwholesome food,
wine, and sexual indulgence

----- End Quote -----

The second word used in the Greek manuscripts, is the word
'egkrates'. Pronounced eng-krat-ace', its meaning is very
similar to the previous word. Notice again the mention of
sexual continence:

----- Begin Quote -----

1) strong, robust
2) having power over, possessed of (a thing)
3) mastering, controlling, curbing, restraining
3a) controlling one's self, temperate, continent

----- End Quote -----

The final word used in the original Greek texts, is the word
'egkrateia'. Pronounced eng-krat'-i-ah, we again see that it
means the control of one's emotions, particularly one's
sensual, or sexual, passions and appetite:

----- Begin Quote -----

1) self-control (the virtue of one who masters his desires
and passions, esp. his sensual appetites)

----- End Quote -----

It is interesting to note Paul's reference to sports in the
previous verse taken from his letter to the Corinthians. In
particular, with his use of the phrase 'every man that
striveth for the mastery', he is referring to how atheletes
must abstain from sex and unhealthy foods in order to build
up their physical strength, and thus win the race; what he
refers to as 'a corruptible crown'. In the verses which
follow that one, he then informs us how he too is running a
spiritual race; and as such, he must also exercise bodily
and emotional control in order that he might win the race,
and obtain the incorruptible Crown of Life, and not be
ashamed at our Lord's Coming:

"I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as
one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and
bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I
have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway."
1 Corinthians 9:26,27, KJV

The Apostle Paul apparently made the very same choice to
become a eunuch, if not physically, at least in a spiritual
sense. In addition to the previous verses, in his in-depth
dissertation on marriage and sexual relationships, which
comes only two chapters before the previous verses, he also
wrote the following lines. It is obvious that these three
chapters are one continual thought on the correct sexual
behaviour of the Christian family. In fact, it is because of
the serious sexual problem which occurred at Corinth, which
he discusses in chapter five, that he was motivated to write
this Epistle to begin with:

"For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every
man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and
another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and
widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if
they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to
marry than to burn." 1 Corinthians 7:7-9, KJV

Obviously, Paul is saying that he was not married. Whether
he was a widower, or a single person since birth, I cannot
say; however, from the time he began to serve the Lord, it
is evident that he was a self-imposed eunuch. Surely this
made his work for the Lord easier as he travelled throughout
Asia and southern Europe. Some modern antichrists have
interpreted Paul's marital status as meaning that he was a
woman-hater. This is the furthest thing from the truth. In
this chapter, as well as in all of his other writings, Paul
speaks with equal respect towards both men and women;
however, he does make clear that ultimately, the man does
have pre-eminence over the woman in regards to spiritual
matters; such as in these verses:

"But I would have you know, that the head of every man is
Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head
of Christ is God...For the man is not of the woman; but the
woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman;
but the woman for the man." 1 Corinthians 11:3, 8-9, KJV

Sadly, some religious organizations today, such as certain
Catholic institutions, have gone to the extreme with taking
the vow of a eunuch; that is, a vow of chastity. They have
placed their clerics under the heavy weight of the law, just
like the Jewish Scribes and Pharisees of old, and it has
resulted in some very serious problems within the Catholic
Church. This includes cases of homosexuality, lesbianism,
and pedophilia. The Apostle Paul apparently foresaw these
times, because in his first Epistle to Timothy, he wrote the
following lines. Notice his explicit mention of 'forbidding
to marry':

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times
some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing
spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in
hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats,
which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of
them which believe and know the truth."
1 Timothy 4:1-3, KJV

Allow me to point out to you that Paul is writing to the
Christian brethren in Rome; thus, when he talks about some
departing from the faith, he is referring to those who
depart from the Christian faith, yet who still claim to be a
part of the same. With that in mind, it is obvious that Paul
is associating 'forbidding to marry' with 'departing from
the faith', 'seducing spirits' and 'doctrines of devils'. In
short, he is saying that the modern Endtime doctrines of
'forbidding to marry', and 'abstaining from meats', is not
of God. They are false doctrines inspired by Satan himself.

Surely this exposes some of the wayard ideas espoused by
Roman Catholic theology, which claims to be the 'mother
church', and the 'one true religion' as I am often told by
Catholics. I believe that part of the problem is that some
of these men and women who decide to become priests, monks,
nuns and the like, do so at an early age before they have
really thought out their decision thoroughly through prayer
and a study of the Word. Perhaps some of them even feel
forced to make such a decision due to the pressure and
expectations placed upon them by their families or by other
people within the Catholic world, such as their spiritual
elders. Instead of counting the cost, as Jesus advises us to
do in Luke chapter fourteen, they make a hasty decision to
accept a vow which they later realize they are no longer
able to keep.

Sadly, by then, for some of them it is too late. They are
already trapped within the Roman Catholic system; and rather
than break their vow of chastity, in order to fulfill the
sexual desires of their bodies through a clean, legitimate
relationship, they choose to not risk disappointing their
family and peers, and embarrassing themselves as well, and
begin to secretly engage in unhealthy sexual practices as we
have seen exposed by the mass media. Paul said that it is
better to marry than to burn, yet ironically, just as he
exposed the sexual sins of ancient Rome in the first chapter
of his Epistle to the Romans, we find that today, the Roman
Catholic Church, which also finds its origin in Rome, is
plagued by the very same sins:

"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for
even their women did change the natural use into that which
is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the
natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward
another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and
receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which
was meet." Romans 1:26,27, KJV

Allow me to reiterate the fact that making the important
decision to become a eunuch for the sake of the Kingdom of
God, before one enters a marriage relationship, seems to be
what is being implied by our Lord's Words, as well as by the
Apostle Paul. Once a certain person has entered a marriage
relationship, and as long as they remain in that state, it
does not seem Scripturally-sound to me to suddenly declare
oneself a eunuch, and forego all sexual pleasure with his or
her spouse. Again, the Apostle Paul was very clear regarding
this matter when he wrote the following counsel:

"Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is
good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid
fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every
woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the
wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the
husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the
husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his
own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except
it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves
to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan
tempt you not for your incontinency."
1 Corinthians 7:1-5, KJV

What does Paul mean by the terms 'render...due benvolence',
and 'defraud ye not'? Quite simply, he is referring to being
kind to each other by meeting each other's sexual needs, and
not cheating each other out of what is one's sexual right
through marriage. That is the gist of these five verses.
Paul is saying that rather than burn with sexual lust, and
become involved in fornication, it is better to marry; and
once two people are married, they should do their best to
meet each other's sexual expectations unselfishly. He goes
on to say that the only time when a man and a wife should
withhold themselves from each other, is when it is by mutual
consent; and even then, it should only be for a very good
reason, and for a set time period; such as to give oneself
to prayer and fasting. I will expand on this thought a bit,
and suggest that it may also include when a woman is
undergoing menstruation, or perhaps when both parties are
extremely busy for the Lord, or perhaps when one party is
very sick, or maybe when your spouse is extremely tired. To
refrain from intercourse at such times is an act of
unselfish love in my view.

However, when your partner is constantly saying "Oh, honey;
not tonight; I'm too tired', watch out! Paul clearly says
that there must be a time when you come back into sexual
union at a mutually-agreed-upon time; otherwise, you are
asking for trouble! A married person can only go so long
without sex. They become used to having it; and if you
refuse to meet their needs because of your own selfishness,
then Satan will come along and tempt them to look for
someone else who may be more than happy to meet their sexual
needs. I have heard of this happening in many relationships,
even in Christian relationships; so if you don't want to
lose your husband or wife to another man, or to another
woman, you better be wise and do as the Lord commands you to
do, by keeping your mate sexually happy! If this happens,
you have no one to blame but yourself!

This leads us to our next point. In his letter to me, my
friend stated that in trying to justify his decision of
having a vasectomy, the only thing in the Scriptures which
he could think of which might validate his choice, was where
we are told in his words 'that if a man can go without a
wife, then it is good to do so'. Being as he was unable to
provide me with a Scriptural reference, I can only assume
that he may be referring to some of the verses I shared
earlier. If that is the case, then it is obvious to me that
he has misunderstood what the Apostle means. In this same
chapter, Paul also writes:

"Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou
loosed from a wife? seek not a wife."
1 Corinthians 7:27, KJV

In other words, in whatever state you happen to find
yourself, whether you are married, or divorced, that is,
'loosed from a wife', remain in that state, and serve the
Lord to the best of your ability. Although he wasn't
specifically referring to his marital status, in his Epistle
to the Philippians, Paul also made a similar statement which
shows that we must accept all things as coming from the
Lord, and to be happy in whatever state we find ourselves.
In that letter he wrote:

"Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in
whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
Philippians 4:11, KJV

As we have just seen, once a person is married, they have an
obligation before the Lord to meet their partner's sexual
needs. When Paul talks about going without a wife, as my
friend put it, he is not talking about getting married, and
then not fulfilling one's sexual obligations; and there is
no indication that he is talking about getting castrated, or
having a vasectomy performed upon oneself. Paul is talking
about not getting married to begin with. He is talking about
becoming a eunuch for the Kingdom of God as he apparently
was. He is not talking about resorting to divorce, sexual
absention, or an operation to make one sterile, in order to
back out of responsibilities to which one has already
committed oneself through marriage. Now, it is possible that
my friend might be a little confused by the following

"But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth,
that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that
rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as
though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as
not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away."
1 Corinthians 7:29-31, KJV

It is right after these verses, that Paul explains how being
married can be a distraction for the Lord's service, as we
saw earlier in this series. Taken in their proper context
then, what Paul really appears to be saying by the above
verses, is that, because they believed that the day of the
Lord's Coming was soon at hand, he was admonishing the
brethren to keep busy in the Lord's service, realizing that
their marital status, and their Earthly status in general,
would soon change. In other words, he was telling them to
keep their priorities straight. So again, for the sake of
emphasis, for a man to go without a wife does not mean that
a man gets married, and then abstains from sex with his
wife; it means that he goes without a wife by never getting
married to begin with. To do otherwise would go against
everything we have thus seen regarding 'they twain shall
become one flesh'.

Before concluding his letter to me, this young man does
honestly admit that there is a degree of selfishness
involved which has influenced their decision to not have any
children. I must concur. I feel that the fact that he would
even tell me this, is a clear indication that the Lord has
already begun working in his heart. There is definitely some
selfishness in this decision; and I can't help but wonder if
this couple hasn't been affected to some degree by the same
selfish spirit which is prevalent in many worldly marriages.
This is something they will definitely have to pray about.

My friend also states that while he feels that he can trust
the Lord regarding this matter, his wife has expressed to
him that she does not have the same faith. In my view, this
is a major problem. Because she cannot trust the Lord as she
should, believing that He knows what is best for them, she
wants to take matters into her own hands, and thus control
her own future. I have already discussed this topic in-depth
earlier in this series, so I will not belabour the point.
What it really comes down to is one simple verse which I
have shared with my readers many times before. Allow me to
share this wonderful verse with you once again:

"And we know that all things work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are the called according to his
purpose." Romans 8:28, KJV

Does Paul say that 'some things work together for good'? No;
he says 'all things work together for good'. The primary
issue here seems to be how much is this couple willing to
really submit themselves to the Lord on the Altar of His
sacrifice, by yielding both their spirits and their bodies
to Him fully? How much are they really willing to cast
themselves into His Hands completely, trusting and knowing,
that as their Heavenly Father who loves them dearly, He will
not do anything, or allow anything to happen to them, which
is not a part of His Plan, and which will ultimately be to
their own benefit; even if they don't understand it at the
time? In the Book of Isaiah, the Prophet wrote:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your
ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8,9, KJV

Does this couple want to do things His way, or their own
way? Do they want to do His Will or their will? This man
concludes his letter by stating that 'it seems that God
leaves marriage up to us'. My answer is yes, for the most
part, God does leave the issue of marriage up to us. As I
state in the article 'Free Will And Personal Choice', the
Lord does leave it up to us to make the right decisions in
our own lives; however, allow me to add once again that we
must strive to make certain that our decisions are in
accordance with His Will, particularly the major ones. I can
tell you all about what happens when you make the wrong
decisions; particularly those which deal with marriage; but
I will spare you. Quite often, it is through making the
wrong decisions, that we grow in wisdom, as well as in our
submissiveness to the Lord. After one has made enough
serious blunders in his life, he begins to realize that
maybe 'Father Knows Best'!

If there is any advice that I would personally offer to a
Christian brother or sister who is contemplating marriage,
aside from the old standby of 'make sure you really love
them', it would have to be, make sure they are a God-fearing
Christian. If you fail to follow this advice, someday, you
may live to regret it; particularly after children begin to
come along, and you want to raise them in the fear and
knowledge of the Lord, while your spouse opposes this. As
the Apostle Paul wrote:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for
what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and
what communion hath light with darkness?"
2 Corinthians 6:14, KJV

When the Lord told the Israelites of the Old Testament not
to marry the heathen, it was for a very good reason. He knew
exactly what would happen if they did. Not only would it
result in genetic corruption, but more importantly, it would
result in spiritual corruption and apostasy. Despite His
warnings, as I explain in such articles as the series 'The
Fruits Of Disobedience', those foolish Israelites failed to
heed the Lord's warnings, and they paid a dear price for
their disobedience. In like manner, if you, as a potential
husband or wife to-be, choose a partner who has openly
admitted that they do not share your Christian faith, and
that they have no intention of ever sharing your Christian
faith, then I don't care how much you feel you are in love
with them, or how hot sexually you are for them, you better
drop them like a hot potato, or else they might just end up
making your life miserable, and as hot as hell!

The Apostle Paul also had to deal with this problem;
however, back then, the situation was a little different.
You see, the Christian faith was young; and the word was
just beginning to get around about Jesus Christ. Because of
this fact, when many people came to Christ, they were
already married; and in some cases, the other spouse had no
interest in becoming a part of the new movement. It was
under these conditions that Paul wrote the following; again,
to those troublesome immoral Corinthians:

"But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath
a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with
him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath an
husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell
with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband
is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is
sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean;
but now are they holy. But if the unbelieving depart, let
him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in
such cases: but God hath called us to peace. For what
knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband?
or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy
wife? But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord
hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in
all churches." 1 Corinthians 7:12-17, KJV

Let me emphasize again, that Paul is giving advice to people
who are already married when they come to know Christ. You
will also note that he is telling his readers that this is
not 'Thus saith the Lord'. In other words, Paul is offering
his personal opinion regarding such matters. Furthermore, he
is not saying to go out and marry a heathen, with the hope
that maybe later you can win them to Christ. While that is
possible, as Paul even states above, that is not what he is
advocating here. In fact, as I point out in other articles,
after the Israelites returned to Jerusalem following the
Seventy Years of Captivity in Babylon, they brought many
heathen wives with them. These wives had seriously polluted
their faith, as well as their genetic heritage. During a
great moment of repentance, notice what happened under the
leadership of such men as Ezra and Nehemiah:

"And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam,
answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our
God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land:
yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing. Now
therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away
all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to
the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the
commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the
law...And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye
have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase
the trespass of Israel. Now therefore make confession unto
the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and
separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from
the strange wives. Then all the congregation answered and
said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do."
Ezra 10:2-3, 10-12, KJV

Do you see what these people did? They resolutely made the
decision to align their will with God's Will. They put God's
Will above their own. It is easy to imagine that some of
these people were really in love with their wives, yet
pleasing the Lord had to come first in their lives. This
very same principle applies to the life of the Christian
today. Whether we are discussing marriage, or childbirth, or
any other issue, God's Will must take supremacy in our
lives. To reiterate then, yes, as with many other things in
this life, God does allow us to make our own choices when it
comes to marriage; but if we are wise, and if we truly love
Him, we will do our best to try to find a mate who is
God-fearing, and who will be pleasing in His sight. While
this decision-making applies to marriage, as of this current
time, I have not found anything in the Scriptures which
shows that God has placed it in our hands, to decide whether
or not to have children. Nowhere have I found any kind of
instructions which give us this authority. The Scriptures
plainly state that children are a blessing and 'an heritage
of the Lord', and nowhere are we told to prohibit, or to try
to control their conception or birth.

As a final note, let me say that I cannot decide God's Will
for anyone. All I can do is share the Scripturs with you,
and offer what I believe are the general rules of conduct
for God's worldwide family. I cannot have faith for you. You
must have faith for yourself, and operate accordingly. As
Paul wrote, you must be fully persuaded in your own mind
regarding the Will of God for your life, because you alone
will be held accountable for your actions in this life:

"One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth
every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own
mind." Romans 14:5, KJV

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ;
that every one may receive the things done in his body,
according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad."
2 Corinthians 5:10, KJV

Are you doing good things in your body as Paul states; or
are you going against the Lord's ordained laws regarding
childbirth? For those of you who feel a little uneasy around
children, or who worry that you might not make good parents,
let me just say this: Give God a chance to work. Let go of
Satan's fears, and grab on to faith, because as Paul also

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he
that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a
rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
Hebrews 11:6, KJV

If you accept His Will by faith, you won't be disappointed.
If He chooses to reward you with a pregnancy, praise God;
and just remember, 'the fruit of the womb is His reward'.
Believe me; once that new creation begins to form in your
womb, God is going to begin to work on your heart. As each
day, week and month passes, a bond is going to begin to form
between you and that child; and once that child is born, you
are going to fall in love with it, and your natural
God-given parental instincts will kick in. You might even
feel a little ashamed and ask yourself, 'How could I ever
not have wanted this? What was I thinking?' That child will
then reward you by bringing many moments of joy into your
life. As he or she grows up knowing the Lord, you will feel
a certain satisfaction in your heart; and someday, you will
be able to say 'Here Lord; you made me a steward over this
child, and this is what I have done with her'. So again,
please step out by faith and give God a chance to work,
won't you?

If you are interested in reading more regarding family
issues such as children, abortion, birth control,
promiscuity, etc., allow me to encourage you to read such
articles as 'Abortion, Birth Control And Promiscuity', as
well as 'Plight Of The Children'. I pray that this series
has been informative and a blessing in your life.
