Quote# 75148

For me to say,"Lord I love you, Lord I trust you with everything, Lord take my life, take all of me," but then not trust Him with my womb, then I was a liar if I said that I trusted the Lord. The excuses that I gave for not wanting more children were all selfish and unBiblical:

1. " I can't handle the ones I have...I'm so tired! " - I truly needed to cast my cares upon the Lord. I was so wrapped up in "poor me" that many times it caused me to take my eyes off of Him.

2. "We can't afford more children...."- God supplies for our needs. If I am truly trusting him and acknowledging that all we have comes from Him, then I should be confident that He will supply what is needed for each additional child that He places into our hands.

3. " I'm getting too old! "- I found out many of the stories of dangers in child birth for moms in their 30s and 40s are just myths. But again, God knows how old I am and He is in control of my body. If he places a child in this old body whether it be 34 or 94, He knows what He's doing....do I trust Him?

4. "What about my other kids? They won't get enough attention from me...it just won't be fair to them" - Do you know that the more children we have, the less selfish the kids become? It's amazing how God has done such miracles in the family as it has grown! We're closer now than EVER. Also, it keeps me from spoiling the younger ones (my tendency) the older ones keep me in check on that one...you can BET on that! When you have a larger family, there's just no time for selfishness, excessive privacy, or petty fighting! It would get way too loud! They still try it now and then, but our family size forces us to keep things under control. I have also become extremely organized out of shear necessity. Just another "extra credit" for having a large group in the house.

1. " I can't handle the ones I have...I'm so tired! " - I truly needed to cast my cares upon the Lord. I was so wrapped up in "poor me" that many times it caused me to take my eyes off of Him.

This isn't answering the question. Also, if you can't handle the kids you have, DON'T HAVE ANY MORE!

2. "We can't afford more children...."- God supplies for our needs. If I am truly trusting him and acknowledging that all we have comes from Him, then I should be confident that He will supply what is needed for each additional child that He places into our hands.

So, God supplies nappies, formula (although you're probably breastfeeding as you're QuiverFull), childcare, school uniforms, and other things?

Child. At. NINETY. FOUR. That's horrible! Odds are it WILL do some major damage at that age, and that's if you even manage it - ever heard of the menopause?

This means that your kids feel like they have nothing. They know that Mummy and Daddy aren't going to give them what they want. That's not fair.

MARRY AND REPRODUCE.

While you're at it, refuse charity, even from friends. Stop listing dependents on your tax return. Don't apply for any state or federal aid that might come out of my pocket. God will provide.

The Lazy One

I really feel sorry for the children of these people. They're not going to have the same kinds of opportunities as the kids of people who aren't having as many as possible. They won't be able to have nice things, and what nice things they do manage to get is going to be snatched away almost automatically by some sibling or other. They won't be able to have a really good relationship with their parents, because they'll have over 9000 siblings to contend with for parental supervision. And don't get me started on the money issue. How do you expect to pay for food and clothes and stuff for all of those kids? Money don't grow on trees, to borrow my dad's saying.

1. " I can't handle the ones I have...I'm so tired! "

Then stop having kids! One child can be a handful, I couldn't imagine having 6 or 7.

2. "We can't afford more children...."- God supplies for our needs.

Mainly through government assistance and charities through your church. Face it, if you have to get outside assistance to take care of all your kids, you shouldn't be having that many kids.

3. " I'm getting too old! "- I found out many of the stories of dangers in child birth for moms in their 30s and 40s are just myths.

And then, a lot of them aren't.

4. "What about my other kids? They won't get enough attention from me...it just won't be fair to them"

And it's not. The older kids end up having to take care of the younger kids because mom is too busy/tired/frazzled to take care of them. And you just can't give each child the attention & love they need & deserve.

If you can handle that many kids, then good for you.
Having lots of kids do have its benefit (emotional and social support within easy reach, etc), but for some family, no.
Treat it as a de-facto standard for all family is a catastrophe.

1. Raising children isn't easy and you want to make sure you do it right.

2. No, no he doesn't. Tell that to some poor Mexican family with 8 kids living in the barrio.

3. Except for the fact that they aren't myths at all.

4. They don't get less selfish overnight, and they don't get less selfish willingly; it happens by necessity. You can train one or two kids to be unselfish; you don't need a living carpet of children for that.

What about immaculate conception? If God really wants you to have 10 children, you will become pregnant and give birth to 10 children no matter what, even without sex. So you should use birth control. If you're meant to have a large family, then by your logic God will make it happen even if you use protection.

QuiverFull women are truly hooked onto a string between the kitchen and the bedroom and the woman "loves" it!

Stacy, did you ever consider the idea that, if your god did not exist, you just screwed up the lives of children who do? It's called reality, darling, and parents have to anticipate possible consequences of their actions - especially in matters pertaining to their children.

Rationalizations and excuses kill children. Grow up!

Lying for Jesus.
The day your god decides to pay for my kids' food, clothing, shelter, health care, and education right through to university, is the day the fucker can dictate to me how many children I should have.
Until then he can blow me.

Menopause is god's way of saying "Alright, that's enough already!".

God is in control of your body. What an arsehole He is. Really, it's amazing how spiteful God is, making you type this idiotic tripe. God is such a bastard, He is making you look and sound like a complete drip. I suppose He thinks it's funny when He make it seem like you're several sandwiches short of a picnic.

Still, I suppose if making you look like a donut amuses Him, then OK. It's got to be better than Him having one of His genocidal days.

Maybe you should concentrate more on loving your kids and not taking your eyes off of them, instead of being so wrapped up in your imaginary deified version of yourself.

And I'm sure that once the God that you "trust" so much decides to bless you with another child, you don't sterilise its bottle, administer any medication or vaccination or even make sure its tucked up nice and warm in its cot, right? Oh, you don't? WHy don't you trust God? Could it be because you are a complete hypocrite? I think that might be it!

God supplies for our needs.

For many of the "Let's have as many kids as possible" crowd, it's the taxpayers who supply their needs. Does that make us God? Then again, we do have the disadvantage of existing, so that the IRS and the state department of taxation can find us.
