Thinking Cap # 14 - The Question: Just How Many Kids Are Enough?
If you were a product of the 50's and 60's as I was, you were undoubtedly exposed
(indoctrinated) to the ZPG (zero population growth) concept. We were told that two kids
were sufficient and that having more than that was harmful to mankind. Now, for whatever
reasons, we seem to see that "mind-set" still in force. It is even entrenched in
the halls of our Christian Schools and the pews of our churches. Are we out of touch with
the Bible? Just how many kids is enough? Your responses are welcomed up to the deadline of
midnight, Friday, June 2.
I fear that in search for the "good life" and perhaps with a desire to ensure
that our kids were not deprived of the "things" we didn't have a kids, we have
swallowed a humanist lie regarding family size. I would suggest several points to support
I am not advocating the barefoot mother with a broken down station wagon dragging her
dirty brood of kids through the grocery store. But, I am advocating a return to Biblical
thinking on when to start a family and how many children to have.
