Introduction - Did you know that birth control pills actually cause early silent abortions?
Dominique Davis: Most people think that birth control pills simply prevent a woman from getting pregnant which is sometimes the case however, birth control pills also act as an abortifacient, snuffing out a young life that has already begun. Not only that but the bible actually condemns other birth control methods as well. In our modern society, birth control is something that most people take for granted and have never even questioned but we as Christians have been commanded by the bible to prove all things and in the course of this film, you will learn the shocking truth about birth control.
Dr. Marie Anderson: “Currently in the United States the pill is used by over 11 million women many of whom are unaware of its mechanisms of action even though they are printed on the packaging. Our message today is that the pill kills babies with its abortifacient affects”
Steven Anderson: Birth control pills cause silent abortions. If you are taking birth control pills, you are inadvertently, literally killing your children and remember this is the most commonly used birth control method. So before we get into the subject from the bible of whether birth control is right or wrong, let me just start by saying that the most commonly used, the most popular method of birth control, the one that four out of five women have used is a pill that will literally cause your unborn children to die. Let me start out by proving to you, from the bible, that life begins at conception. Look down at your bible at Isaiah chapter 7 verse 14.
Dominique Davis: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Steven Anderson: Now flip over if you would to Matthew chapter 1 because in Matthew chapter 1 this exact scripture is quoted in the New Testament. In the Old Testament it said “a virgin shall conceive and bare a son” while in Matthew chapter 1 verse 23 the bible reads:
Dominque Davis: “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
Steven Anderson: So isn’t it interesting that in the Old Testament it says conceived and in the New Testament it says she’ll be with child. You know what that tells me? That conception produces a child. Not a blastocyst or an embryo or a fetus but God considers that a child. When we talk about life beginning at conception the devil loves to change the meaning of words. Now conception has historically always meant fertilization when the seed from the man and the eggs from the woman come together and that egg is fertilized. That has been known as conception but now they’re starting to change the definition and even in some dictionaries they’ll put a definition that says “well its fertilization or implantation”.
Dominque Davis: Dr. Vanesse Cullins, Vice President for medical affairs at Planned Parenthood Federation of America was asked if hormonal birth control pills cause abortion. Her response was “No. Abortion ends a pregnancy. Contraception pills work before a pregnancy begins. Pregnancy begins with the implantation of the developing fertilized egg in a woman’s uterus” yet in the next paragraph she admits “implantation doesn’t occur until five to seven days after fertilization”.
Steven Anderson: Let’s see what the bible defines as conception, let’s make the bible our final authority. The bible says in Hebrews 11 verse 11
Dominque Davis: “Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.”
Steven Anderson: So let me ask you this, could conceive seed refer to implantation? Let me explain to you the terms here, the seed of the man travels into the woman’s body and finds the egg and the egg is fertilized up toward the top of the fallopian tubes. That fertilized egg, that developing child that’s multiplying and growing and so forth is traveling down that tube until it gets to the uterus and when it arrives at the uterus it implants itself into the wall of the uterus and then eventually that’s where the placenta is going to be attached and then there’s going to be a cord and the baby and so on and so forth. But that developing life comes down that tube and implants in the wall of the uterus. Now when the bible says that she receives strength to conceive seed notice that conception is tied in with the seed isn’t it? Is the seed involved with implantation? No, because the seed is long gone. The seed from the man fertilizes that egg and then all the seed is gone. Okay and then a week goes by and then it implants. How could you call implantation ‘conceiving seed’? You can’t, there’s no seed there anymore, the seed has been gone for over a week. So we see that the worlds definition, that’s a new definition that they’re twisting and changing things to meanand that planned parenthood has pushed, is not in tune with the bible. It’s just a lie of the devil to try to get you to say ‘oh yea life begins at conception, that’s 7 to 14 days after fertilization’. So here’s how these birth control pills work, the combination pill works according to two mechanisms. There’s a primary mechanism and then there’s a backup mechanism. The primary mechanism is to stop a woman from ovulating, she does not release an egg therefore no pregnancy can occur now. If a woman just doesn’t release an egg and no pregnancy occurs is any human life being snuffed out, is anyone being killed? No, it’s just no egg is produced and so there’s not a pregnancy but there’s the backup mechanism.
Dr. Marie Anderson: “The pill thins the uterine lining and depletes it of essential nutrients such as Glycodelin-A to the degree that it cannot nourish a newly conceived baby. IVF data has repeatedly shown that the minimal endometrial thickness which is required to maintain an early pregnancy ranges from 5 to 13 millimeters. The average endometrial thickness of a pill user is only 1.4 millimeters. This is simply too thin to nourish a baby. Consequently the baby dies and this is an abortion.”
Steven Anderson: You say ‘well how often is this happening’, well it depends on what type of pill is being taken. The most common pill, the popular pill, is the combination pill which is estrogen and progestin combination. Breakthrough ovulation, which is when an egg is released even though you’re taking the birth control pill, occurs five to sixty percent of the time.
Dominique Davis: Simple logic tells us that if an egg can be released and fertilized 5 to 60 percent of the time and implantation is being prevented close to 100 percent of the time, a silent abortion is taking place 5 to 60 percent of months that a woman is taking the pill because the 7 day old child is unable to implant and dies. The morning after pill functions after the same principle to destroy the lining of the uterus but in a shorter period of time due to higher concentrations of the same hormones.
Dr. Marie Anderson: “Women deserve to be told the truth about the abortifacient mechanisms of the pill. To deemphasize this information is unconscionable”
Steven Anderson: Same thing with the Depo-Provera patch, the Depo-Provera shots: any hormonal birth control method is an abortifacient that is causing you to have a silent abortion some percentage of the time and we as Christians should just reject it outright as being manslaughter or murder to take these types of pills knowing what they’re doing to your body and knowing what they’re doing to your children.
Dominque Davis: The term birth control pills is accurate since they do not prevent conception but birth. Perhaps the reason God has not entered the abortion holocaust in America is that God’s own people are unknowingly murdering their own offspring.
Dominique Davis: (Proverbs 24:11-12)
“If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?”
Steven Anderson: And not only that, I’m doing you a great favor by warning you about these things because honestly birth control pills are very harmful to your health in the first place.
Dr. Angela Lanfranchi: “You know the pill kills and I’m gonna tell you during this talk how that happens. There are four major mechanisms how the pill can kill. They cause your blood to clot, they cause cancer, they make it easier to get potentially lethal infections and they make it more likely you will die a violent death. So what about this blood clotting? Well, if the blood clots in a artery of your heart it’s a heart attack or an MI, if it clots in your brain that’s called a stroke, if it causes clots in the veins in your legs that’s called a DVT or a deep venous thrombosis and if those clots in your legs break off and go to your lung that’s called a pulmonary embolism. In 2005, the international agency on research of cancer which is part of the World Health Organization, a U.N. body, put out monograph 91 that stated estrogen-progestin combination drugs in hormone replacement therapy in birth control pills were group 1 carcinogens for breast, cervical and liver cancer. And yet that didn’t make it on the 6 o’clock news. 2006 Chris Kahlenborn published a meta-analysis on the pill in the Mayo Clinic Proceeding Journal. In 2009, Dolle and other authors put out this paper that showed that you had a 320% increased risk of triple negative breast cancer. Triple negative breast cancer is the hardest breast cancer to treat because it’s not sensitive to hormonal treatment, it’s not sensitive to that monoclonal antibody drug Herceptin and there are a lot of deaths from it in premenopausal women especially. So if you took the pill 18 and under and that’s very common I have patients that come in, they’re 22, and they’ve already been on it for ten years cause they got put on it when they were 12 and they had painful periods. So since 1975 by the governmental seer data that you can also look up on the web, the incidents of insight to breast cancers non-invasive breast cancers has gone up 400 percent in premenopausal women. So you also increase the risk of cervical cancer and you also increase the risk of liver cancer.”
Steven Anderson: If you look at the history of birth control in this country first of all historically it’s been considered ungodly and immoral to use birth control by Christian people throughout history in fact it was illegal in the United States until the 20th century.
Dominique Davis: Before 1936, all contraceptive devices and birth control methods were illegal in the United States of America. In 1938, Judge August Hand lifted the federal ban on birth control. In 1965, the United States Supreme Court overturned one of the last state laws prohibiting the prescription or use of contraceptives by married couples. What the world in the civil government considered immoral and even criminal fundamental Christianity embraces less than seventy years later.
Steven Anderson: Preachers used to be against birth control. You know one of the most famous Baptist preachers of all times names is John R Rice and whether you love John R Rice or you’re not a fan of John R Rice isn’t really the point, he was a mainstream, very popular independent Baptist preacher. John R Rice said this in 1946:
Dominique Davis: “Birth control measures, if generally practiced, would be disastrous to public morals and public welfare.”
Steven Anderson: Here’s what else he said:
Dominique Davis: “The use of artificial means, drugs and appliances to prevent conception has for centuries been regarded as immoral, wrong for the individual, and dangerous to society as a whole.”
Steven Anderson: Yet people today will act like “aw you know, what are you preaching? You’re an independent Baptist and you’re preaching against birth control? You’re wild, you’re crazy you fanatic” But this is what everyone used to believe.
Dominique Davis: In the words of our 26th president Theodore Roosevelt “Birth control is sinful”. Could a Baptist preacher today say in his pulpit what the president of the United States said in a public speech only one hundred years ago?
Steven Anderson: The woman who is responsible for bringing birth control into the mainstream and making it legal in the United States was a woman named Margaret Sanger. Now this Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist
So where did this campaign for birth control as a means of ‘better health’ and empowering the family for the black community originate? We have to understand something called eugenics which was basically people’s thoughts that the unfit should not reproduce and the fit should. So from this background of eugenics someone named Margaret Sanger and if you’re not familiar with her she’s the founder of Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger was a proponent of eugenics and she believed that the racially unfit should not reproduce and during her time in the early 1900s who would be the racially unfit? Well, they’d be African Americans.
Steven Anderson: She believed that white people were superior to other races and she would, like the Nazis you know believed that certain races were inferior to others and that we need to encourage those people not to reproduce so that we can just have good people reproduce and the fittest and the strongest people reproduce.
So in comes Margaret Sanger with her slick talk but in reality Margaret Sanger thought of these people as human waste which really they should not be reproducing anymore because they’re just like weeds and so she came in with her talk of family planning and better health to try to basically trick the community into buying her program which is really sterilization, birth control and abortion.
Steven Anderson: She started an organization called the Birth Control Federation of America and you know what the Birth Control Federation of America later changed its name to? Planned parenthood which I call planned baronhood. Planned Parenthood, that wicked organization that conservatives rail against for being pro-abortion and pro-death was actually originally known as the birth control federation of America. So you can see the type of evil people that are behind this agenda. She’s the one who pushed this through and got it legal in the United States. She’s the one that promoted it and made it mainstream. This wicked, evil person named Margaret Sanger who was an evolutionist and not a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ by any stretch of the imagination.
Cut Scene – “This is Margaret Slee, President of America’s Planned Parenthood Federation maintains that European women should stop having babies for the next ten years.
Question to Margaret – “Don’t you think such a theory, such a radical theory is anti-social?”
Response – “On the contrary, it seems to me that it is more practical and humane but from my view I believe there should be no more babies”
Another question to Margaret – “Do you believe in sin? When I say believe I don’t mean believe in committing sin do you believe there is such a thing as sin?”
Response – “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners all sorts of things just marked when they’re born: that to me is the greatest sin that people can commit.”
Steven Anderson: The bottom line is that biblically speaking, God wants us to have children and he wants us to be fruitful and multiply. Let’s look at some scriptures on this.
Dominique Davis: (Genesis 1:28) “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.”
Steven Anderson: And you say well Pastor Anderson, God’s just telling them to be fruitful and multiply because there is only two of them. Obviously when there are only two people you have to be fruitful and multiply but what you have to understand is that he used the word replenish for a reason. Now if he were just talking to Adam and Eve only the word replenish would make absolutely no sense because replenish means to refill. Well guess what it had never been filled before so how could he tell them to refill or replenish. The reason he tells them to replenish is because of the fact that it’s not a command just to Adam and Eve but rather a command to all of mankind to continually replenish the earth. Children are gonna be born and people are going to die and it’s our job to be fruitful and to multiply and to replenish the earth on an on-going basis and the word replenish proves that he was not speaking to just Adam only in that scripture. But even so we have tons of other scripture, look at Genesis chapter nine what God said to Noah.
Dominique Davis: “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Genesis 9:1
“And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.” Genesis 9:7
Steven Anderson: You say Pastor Anderson there’s only eight of them of course they need to replenish. I’m gonna show you that this is a theme that comes up over and over again. This wasn’t just Adam, this wasn’t just Noah. Over and over again God’s people are told to be fruitful and multiply. It says in chapter 17 verse 20.
Dominique Davis: “And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.” Genesis 17:20
Steven Anderson: And by the way notice that being fruitful and multiplying is always associated with blessing, being bless. When you’re fruitful, when you multiply that’s a blessing in the bible. Genesis 28 verse 3.
Dominique Davis: “And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;”
“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
“And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.” Genesis 48:4
“For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.” Leviticus 26:9
Steven Anderson: This is when the children of Israel are already numbering in the millions. There are millions and millions of the children of Israel and they’re out of Egypt and they’re going into the promise land and God says if you obey my voice and if you keep my commandments I will make you fruitful and I will multiply you. God wants his people to be fruitful and to multiply and it’s a blessing when they do. Now in Exodus chapter one we have a story about the children of Israel, they’ve gone down into Egypt and when they went down into Egypt the bible tells us in verse five.
Dominique Davis: “And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already. And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.” Exodus 1:5-6
Steven Anderson: So, the children of Israel that go down into Egypt are seventy souls, seventy people and they’re going down to Egypt which is one of the most powerful nations in the world a great big giant powerful nation, they are seventy people. Let’s fast forward a few hundred years and look what the bible says in verse seven.
Dominique Davis: “And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.” Exodus 1:7
Steven Anderson: Let me ask you this, are God’s people multiplying? And look what the bible says in verse 8.
Dominque Davis: “Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:” Exodus 1:8-9
Steven Anderson: So are the Egyptians multiplying at the same rate as the Israelites? No, the Egyptians are obviously not multiplying and by the way, if you go to Planned Parenthood’s website they’ll tell you birth control was invented in Ancient Egypt. That’s what Planned Parenthood says on their website. The oldest known birth control we’ve found was found in Ancient Egypt and the bible here shows us a contrast of God’s people being fruitful, multiplying and increasing abundantly while the population of the worldly Egyptians is not keeping pace at all to the point where seventy people outpace them. And they say the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we. Now look Pharaoh here, this evil king that wants to kill children later in the chapter represents the devil and so what we see in this story is that number one God’s people multiplied greatly, number two we see the devil didn’t like it, the devil is upset about it. So what’s the devil gonna do about it to stop it, let’s read it. It says in verse ten.
Dominique Davis: “Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.” Exodus 1:10
Steven Anderson: They said look we need to do something about this, we need to stop these people from multiplying.
Dominique Davis: “Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel. And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.” Exodus 1:11-13
Steven Anderson: And what do we see here in all these verses over and over again they’re making him do what work and serve with rigor and have burdens and have to do all this hard work and be in bondage. But even in spite of all that they keep multiplying and growing don’t they? So look what the next step is, it says in verse number 15.
Dominque Davis: “And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.” Exodus 1:15-17
Steven Anderson: So what do we see here in this story? Number one God’s people are multiplying greatly, number two the devil doesn’t like it, number three he afflicts them with burdens, hard work, servitude and makes their lives rigorous and difficult and then number four he instructs the Hebrews to murder their children. But you know what the devil has done to try to stop God’s people from multiplying is he says you know what let’s put them to work and notably he wants to put the women to work. Put the women to work, that’ll stop them from multiplying because what was the devils answer in Exodus one he said put them to work and then kill the ones that are conceived and that’s exactly what the devils agenda is today he says number one send the women to work and then they won’t be able to reproduce because they’re not gonna be able to miss work, they’re not gonna be able to take care of the kids so they’re gonna be so busy with their job they’re gonna be forced to use birth control and then not only that but the ones they would conceive we will slay them through what birth control pills that do cause silent early abortions and also through abortion itself surgical abortion itself. Now the United States Department of Labor has these statistics for 2013 that women participating in the labor force in 2013 that are of a working age, is 57.2 percent and men working is 69.7 percent. It’s not even that different I mean think about it, it’s only about what a twelve percent difference between the men working versus the women working. It didn’t used to be that way folks. It used to be that men went out to work and the women stayed home. That was the norm that was the accepted societal norm that men would go to work and provide and that the women would stay home, marry, bear children and guide the house. I think I read that in the bible first Timothy chapter five verse fourteen.
Dominque Davis: (1 Timothy 5:14-15) “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan.”
Steven Anderson: I will, God’s will, I will therefore that women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully for some are already turned aside after Satan. That’s what the bible says. But this story that we see playing out in Exodus chapter one is the devils modus operandi in 2014 as well, same thing. Put the women to work and then slay the unborn that’s the plan you say okay pastor Anderson you’ve at least convinced me that the birth control pills are wrong because they are taking a life I mean how can you be against the morning after pill and not against normal birth control pills when the morning after pill is just a high-dose birth control pill that’s all it is. The morning after pill contains the same hormones at a higher dose that will just quickly change the lining of the uterus to make it a hostile environment for the child, that’s why it works. But you say well pastor Anderson okay I’m convinced that uh you know birth control pills are the wrong way to go, they’re abortifacients but what about other birth control methods I mean come on are you telling me that birth control’s just wrong and that there’s no acceptable birth control method, in a word yes. But let’s just go through the methods quickly and I don’t wanna you know I’m not gonna get into any detail or be graphic or anything but there are a few different types of methods go to Genesis chapter thirty eight, if you would, Genesis chapter thirty eight because Genesis thirty eight is the only mention of birth control in the entire bible, it says in verse 8.
Dominique Davis: “And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew him also.” (Genesis 38:8-10)
Steven Anderson: God got angry and killed him. Not a very good advertisement for birth control right here in Genesis 38, it’s not looking good and especially when you realize this is the only mention of birth control. You say oh ho pastor Anderson you poor ignorant fool don’t you realize that the reason God was mad at Onan was the reason why he spilled it on the ground why what was wrong with his reason. You say well its cause he did it for a selfish reason yeah but everybody who uses birth control is doing it for a selfish reason. Name for me a birth control motivation that’s not selfish.
Dominique Davis: Why do today’s Christians seek to limit the size of their families by means of birth control? Not one reason can be given as to why a Christian would want to bypass the blessing of children that is not motivated by either selfishness or a lack of faith in God. The bible clearly teaches that it is the LORD that opens the womb of a woman and causes her to conceive a child. Who are we to tamper with the will of God?
(Genesis 20:18) “For the Lord had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.”
(Genesis 29:31) “And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.”
(Genesis 30:22) “And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.”
(1 Samuel 1:5-6) “But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the Lord had shut up her womb. And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the Lord had shut up her womb.”
(Isaiah 66:9) “Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.”
Steven Anderson: You say okay well what other methods are there, there’s gotta be an acceptable method out there of birth control. Well, these are the basic classifications of birth control methods. First of all you have hormonal birth control and that’s gonna include your IUDs that release hormones these Mirena ring things and the patch and the shot and the mini pill and the combination pill. All hormonal birth control methods we’ll put those in the same category and those should be immediately ruled out for being manslaughter or if you do it intentionally on purpose it would be murder if you do it by accident it’s manslaughter okay? Those are ruled out then another method that people would use is the Onan method we’ll call it, you know spilling it on the ground. You know the bible isn’t really saying anything positive about that method. Then another method people would use is a barrier method is what they’ll call it and to me a barrier method is pretty much the same thing as Onan’s method, you know, I’ll put it in the same category personally okay and then another method that’s pretty popular amongst Catholics and this is what the Catholics teach that you should be doing is called natural family planning or NFP. Now natural family planning you know you’re not really using birth control per se because you’re not using barriers, you’re not using the pills or anything like that. I’m just gonna say it right now I’m against natural family planning I don’t believe in it, my children are approximately two years apart and we do not use any birth control we use none, zero, zilch okay. The only birth control method we use is getting on our knees and praying for God to give us more children that’s our only birth control that we use okay but we never use any so how and I’ll explain to you a little later how our children are two years apart and we do not use natural family planning, NFP, this is also sometimes known as the rhythm method, we do not use it and I’m repeating this because people often mistakenly think oh pastor Anderson believes in natural family planning or pastor Anderson is you know believes in the rhythm method, no I don’t, I’ve never taught that, never believed that. We don’t use it none of our children are spaced through natural family planning. Natural family planning is where you chart out a woman’s cycle and they chart out her monthly cycle and sometimes they’ll use computer software, smartphone app, different charts maybe even take your temperature and chart all this data and enter it into a computer and this software will tell you when you are the most fertile each month. So there’s about five to seven days a month that are blacked out as okay this is the time she’s most likely to get pregnant so if you abstain during these five to seven months she’s probably not going to get pregnant. That’s called natural family planning or the rhythm method. Now a lot of Catholics will use this and that’s what the Catholic Church promotes and they’ll say this they’ll say well God could still make you get pregnant if he wanted to so it’s not really birth control you know this is kinda like well you know it could still be but here’s why I’m against natural family planning, because of the fact that first of all there’s another big blackout period each month if you know what I mean so now we have two major blackouts each month number one okay but number two the fact is that during the blackout period is actually the best time for a husband and his wife to hit the sack because that’s actually when a woman is going to enjoy it the most. I’m not trying to- I’m keeping this G rated but it’s just a scientific fact that women actually desire intimacy the most during that period why because when their body is ovulating and when they are releasing that egg and able to become pregnant they naturally desire that union with their husband so it’s, isn’t it kinda foolish to blackout the best part of the month for intimacy between husband and wife and say well okay the best time for doing it, the best week, we’re not gonna do it that week. That’s not very good for your marriage okay especially because now you have these two big blackout periods each month so half the month is x’d off the calendar okay but not only that look what the bible says in first Corinthians chapter seven. Defraud ye not one the other except it be with consent for a time that you may use natural family planning is that what it says? It says 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. What is the purpose of God saying hey do not abstain from a physical relationship with your spouse, do not defraud one the other he said because you don’t want Satan to tempt you for your incontinency. And the blackout period of natural family planning is the time when the husband and wife would be the most open to temptation so and God’s not even making any allowance for it here. He’s not teaching us hey abstain every month in order not to have children no children are a blessing, you’re supposed to be fruitful and multiply, we’re supposed to be having lots of children according to the bible. Psalm one twenty seven says this
Dominique Davis: (Psalm 127:3-5) “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”
Steven Anderson: God says children are a blessing we should wanna have our quiver full of them, it’s a joy and a blessing and a good thing to have children so when you teach and you say hey be fruitful, multiply, increase abundantly, exceedingly, have children, don’t use birth control you don’t need to be Onan and you don’t need to murder your own children, you don’t need to sit there and abstain from a physical relationship from your spouse during the best parts of the month no the bible is telling us to have children. People will say this that well if you do that you’re going to get pregnant every nine months and that’s not healthy. That’s what they’ll say won’t they have you heard this opposition? Now personally I don’t think that that’s healthy for women to have children every nine or ten months and frankly that’s why God didn’t design it that way. And that’s why even though my wife and I use no birth control we do not have children every nine or ten months. You say pastor Anderson how do you do it, how are you not having children every eleven, twelve months pastor Anderson what’s the deal, what’s your secret? Hosea chapter one verse eight says this.
Dominique Davis: “Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.”
Steven Anderson: When did this woman conceive? When she weaned why? Because breast feeding will stop you from getting pregnant.
Simply breastfeeding your baby regularly and exclusively can help you prevent another pregnancy for six months. How does it work? Well, if you breastfeed exclusively that means no formula or other baby foods, the hormones in your body will naturally change to prevent ovulation, the release of an egg. No egg, no pregnancy. This all happens naturally without a prescription or any medication. Breastfeeding is safe, simple and convenient. There are no negative side effects, there’s nothing to buy, there are a lot of great health and nutrition benefits for your baby and for you. Breastfeeding is incredibly effective as birth control, so effective that for every 100 women who breastfeed continuously for the first six months after birth, only one or two of them will get pregnant.
Steven Anderson: It is ninety nine percent effective if you do it properly. If you breastfeed on demand your child, that will prevent you from getting pregnant again until it is naturally safe to do so. Look God designed it in his wisdom. Think about how smart God is. God designs it where a woman gives birth to a child and then breastfeeding that child keeps her from getting pregnant again until her body has a chance to recover. And then by the time the child is older and grown and you know able to eat a lot of solids and breastfeeding less and less, then the woman’s fertility will come back and then she’ll be able to have the next child and this is not a birth control method because we were gonna breastfeed the kid anyway. It’s just called doing it normal. It’s called just having your kid and feeding it the way God planned so this isn’t natural family planning that’s why I wanna make sure there’s no confusion here. This is not a birth control method this is not using birth control and yet having children that are spaced normally and naturally and healthy. But this is why it doesn’t work for most people because if you put your kid on a four-hour feeding schedule not gonna work. You must feed the child on demand meaning when it’s hungry feed it and with a newborn that’s pretty much every hour so when my wife has a little baby she’s feeding the baby constantly, she’s nursing it constantly okay that’s one of the rules, number two the baby has to sleep in bed with you because if you don’t have the baby in bed with you then you can’t feed it on demand throughout the night every hour. Now a lot of people will say oh baby in bed with you that’s a bassinet next to the bed no see and this is why it doesn’t always work for people because they don’t follow the protocol that’s gonna work. They try to do a four hour feeding schedule they’re supplementing with bottles, they’re having the baby in a bassinet or crib or something like that, no, the baby has to be in bed with you but society wants you using birth control. I think exodus one shows us why because the devil doesn’t like it when God’s people multiply and while the Mormons are multiplying and while the Muslims are multiplying, God’s people are having 2.5 children and it’s a shame. We as God’s people need to multiply abundantly and churches would be filled with a new generation that’s growing up and learning the word precept upon precept, line upon line and they’re gonna grow up and be a by the army for the Lord but instead people are refusing to have kids cause they’re serving the idols of this world and chasing after materialism or they’re buying into the ideology of the Satan worshiper Margaret Sanger because they’re being brainwashed by TV and school and everything else and I’m here to tell you, today, that God’s way is the best way the natural way the Christian way and if you would get on God’s program by faith and just step out in faith and say hey I’m gonna do it God’s way you know what you’ll find that God will provide and that God will give you a lot of joy and happiness in your life and God’s gonna bless you because the path to God’s blessing is through the door of obedience.
Dominique Davis: The people of God have been heavily influenced by the ungodly world system and the key doctrines of the bible presented here have all but fallen by the wayside. We have gone from condemning all methods of birth control to condoning and even promoting birth control pills which are the most heinous form of birth control. Would to God this generation would stand up and fight for this key doctrine of God’s word and cleanse our churches from the blood of our sons and daughters
After Credits: The bible is really clear on salvation. It is not based on how good you are. A lot of people think that they’re pretty good, and that they are going to get to heaven because they’re pretty good but the Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) The Bible says, “As it is written there is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10) I’m not righteous. You’re not righteous, and if it were our goodness that would get us into heaven, none of us would be going.
The bible even says in Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful and unbelieving, the abominable and murderers and sorcerers and whoremongers and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” I have lied before. Everyone has lied before, so we have all sinned, and we have done things worse than lying. Let’s face it: we all deserve hell.
But the Bible says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) Jesus Christ, because he loves us, came to this earth. The bible says he was God manifest in the flesh. God basically took on human form. He lived a sinless life. He did not commit any sin, and of course, they beat him, and spit on him, and nailed him to the cross. The Bible says that when he was on that cross he “himself bare our sins in his own body on the tree.” (1 Peter 2:24) So every sin you have ever done, and every sin I have ever done - it was as if Jesus had done it. He was being punished for our sins. Then they took his body when he had died, and buried it in the tomb, and his soul went down to Hell for three days and three nights (Acts 2:31). Three days later he rose again from the dead. He showed unto the disciples the holes in his hands. The Bible is really clear that Jesus did die for everybody. It says that he died “not for our sins only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 John 2:2). But there is something that we must do to be saved. The bible has that question in Acts 16, “What must I do to be saved? And they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” That is all. He did NOT say, “Join a church, and you’ll be saved. Get baptized, and you’ll be saved. Live a good life, and you’ll be saved. Repent of all your sins, and you’ll be saved, NO. He said “believe.”
Even the most famous verse in the whole Bible, whose reference is written on the bottom of the cup at “In and Out Burger.” It’s so famous. Everybody’s heard of it: John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” And everlasting means everlasting. It means forever, and Jesus said, “I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28) The Bible says in John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” So if you believe on Jesus Christ, the Bible says you have everlasting life. You are going to live forever. You can’t lose your salvation. It’s eternal, it’s everlasting. Once you’re saved, once you believe on him, you’re saved forever, and no matter what, you can never lose your salvation.
Even if I were to go out and commit some awful sin, God will punish me for it on this earth. If I went out and killed somebody today, God would make sure that I got punished, I’m going to prison, or far worse, or the death penalty. However this world punishes me, and God is going to make sure I get punished even more, but I’m not going to Hell. There is nothing I can do to go to hell because I’m saved, and if I went to hell, then God lied. Because he promised that whoever believeth has everlasting life, and he said, “Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.” That is why there are a lot of examples of people in the Bible who did some really bad things, yet they made it to Heaven. How? Because they were so good? NO, it’s because they believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. Their sins are forgiven. Other people who may have lived a better life in the world’s eyes, or maybe they really even lived a better life, if they don’t believe in Christ, they are going to have to go to hell to be punished for their sins.
Let me just close on this one thought: one thing that I wanted to be sure and bring up today is that there was a question that was asked to Jesus by one of his disciples, and that question was this: are there few that be saved? That’s a good question, right? Are most people saved? Or is it few that are saved? Who here thinks that most people are going to heaven - that most people in this world are going to heaven? Guess what the answer was: he said, in Matthew 7, “Enter ye in at the strait gate because wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way that leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14) Then he went on to say this: “Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name have cast out devils, and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23)
First of all, the majority of this world doesn’t even claim to believe in Jesus. Thankfully the majority of this classroom claims to believe in Jesus, but the majority of the world does not claim to believe in Jesus. But God warned that even amongst those who claim to believe in Jesus, even among those that call him Lord, many will be saying to him, “We did all these wonderful works! Why aren’t we saved!” He is going to say, “Depart from me, I never knew you.” That is because salvation is not by works, and if you are trusting your own works to save you, if you think you’re going to heaven because you’ve been baptized, if you think, “Well, I think you have to live a good life, I think you have to keep the commandments to be saved, I think you have to go to church, I think you have to turn from your sins…” If you are trusting in your works, Jesus is going to say to you one day, “Depart from me, I never knew you.”
You must have all your faith in what he did. You must put your faith in what Jesus did on the cross when he died for you, was buried, and rose again. That’s your ticket into heaven. If you’re trusting other things, and you say, “Well, I’m going to heaven because I’m such a good Christian, and I do all these wonderful things.” He is going to say, “Depart from me.” Notice what he said, “Depart from me, I NEVER knew you.” He didn’t say, “I used to know you.” Once he knows you… remember I mentioned this earlier: it’s everlasting its eternal. Once he knows you, you are saved forever. He is going to say, “Depart from me, I never knew you,” because if you go to Hell, it is because he never knew you. Because once he knows you, he knows you. Just as my children will always be my children. When you’re born again, when you’re his child, you’ll always be his child. You may be the black sheep of the family. You may be somebody who gets disciplined by God heavily on this earth. You can screw up your life down here, but you can’t screw up salvation. Once you are saved, it is a done deal. That is the main thing I wanted to present to you about the end times, and we do have just a few minutes for questions about either salvation or about the end times.
