by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Are We Degenerating?
Editor’s note: Nancy is trying to make the case that having less children comes from the same sinful mindset that causes movie and television viewing. It’s not even close. Many people limit family size due to realities like income and wanting to focus fully on a few children. It’s not all some big selfish ‘me-me-me’ going on.
What about family life? We have so many wonderful godly families in the nation who are raising godly children. And yet sadly, across Christendom, the majority of families have the mindset of the world. They have limited their families to two children. They are so excited when they have their son and daughter, and think, that’s it!
I remember talking to an elderly gentleman on one of my flights. He told me that his father came from a family of ten children and he came from a family of six. “How many children did you have?” I asked. “Two,” he replied. Very typical. Ten, six, two! Every generation has less children. Degeneration. Falling away from God’s original plan and purpose for mankind. We have become victims of a humanistic society. The blind leading the blind into the ditch!
It was normal to sit together as a family to eat meals. To communicate with one another. Now, if families do sit together they bring their iPhones to the table! They don’t even communicate face to face. Now that really is degeneration!
