Is Family Planning a Form of Unbelief In God?

Posted on

This post has stuff about religion and a previous relationship. My perspective has changed

Well now that we’ve had our second child Mary is feeling a little worn out. Christian came one year and a few days after Madeline which means Mary’s body hasn’t had much of an opportunity to relax.

Mary and I used contraceptives for the first three years of our marriage. But I have to admit that I was never completely comfortable with it. There was always this nagging feeling that we were taking control of something we had no authority over.

I also have to mention that I am not 100% dead set in some belief that abstaining from contraceptives or natural family planning techniques is wrong. I really don’t know. But I’m interested in coming to some kind of conclusion.
