MissesAwesome:  I’m glad that, even though we come from opposite sides of the spectrum, we can both feel supported by our communities. That is a truly amazing thing πŸ™‚

I grew up going to catholic school, and DH and I are about 90% sure we are CFBC. I never thought of the two being conflicting until this thread.

Yep.  Generally my church has no issue with birth control and they are a big proponent of having the ability to choose.

I would aruge that something like the Quiverfull movement is sinful when it overrides someone’s choice.

MissesAwesome:  Oh, absolutely guidelines for the marriage bed but in terms of, okay, sex should be between both of you (so you dont commit adultery, obviously you dont involve anyone else/perveseness like animals of any kind, etc.)…but I was talking in terms of the KIND of sex you have with your husband and what you do with each other’s bodies. Anyway, I agree with your post.

MissesAwesome:  Oh no, this thread doesn’t give me reservations about push back from people.  It just had never occured to me that there *may* be more push back with Christians.  It’s honestly all very interesting. 

Anywho, it’s all just very nice and neat to see a like minded community for this πŸ™‚

MissesAwesome:  wait…. πŸ˜‘ i dont mean to be condescending…. but how does this even work….. what about “be fruitfull and multiply”? And the fact that to be CFBC you have to be on BC and some churces forbid it… so yeah…. how does this work. Or do you just nit pick what ever works out for you and that’s that? I think the only way to really be child free and religious is of you just cant have kids or you are celebrate like a nun, not cause you choose not to and use all kinds of BC to make sure you stay that way. πŸ˜‘

I’m CFBC and Christian. I never saw my choice as incompatible with my faith and I have never gotten any pushback except from my brother a long time ago when he told me he thought the decision was selfish. I explained that it was more selfish to bring a child into the world that you didn’t really, really want.

My mother had 5 kids that she didn’t want and put the responsibility on other people to raise. She damaged us all with her choices and she’s the main reason my sister and I chose not to have kids. I never felt a ticking clock, an urge or a tingle, so I never sought out motherhood. I didn’t want to roll the dice that some magical “maternal instinct” would kick in at some point and risk leaving some innocent baby hanging the balance.

I can’t find the article, but essentially the author states that “be fruitful and multiply” is not a commandment but rather a blessing given to those in marriage.
