Time magazine’s August 12, 2013 cover story is “The ChildFree Life: When Having It All Means Not Having Children.”
The American birthrate is at a record low. What happens when having it all means not having children?
Out-of-wedlock births are increasing while married women are having fewer children. What madness!
To suggest that “having it all” might mean “not having children” illustrates how far the world has gone in its rejection of God in its quest for self-seeking.
The world at large – pop culture, if you prefer to call it that – is living in defiant rebellion against its Creator. The contempt that this world heaps on the God-fearing minority in its midst only grows with each passing year. The judgments this world is bringing on itself are going to be painful, and they have only just begun.
In the meantime, God bless the mothers. They bear their children in pain, but it is the kind of pain that leads to joy. The pain brought on by the selfishness of the world will lead only to despair.
