Ask Doug: Is it a sin for a Christian couple to choose to remain childless?
Mp3 version HERE.
YouTube version HERE.
My problem here is that the Bible is a huge book and nowhere is the question answered: “Is it OK to have a marriage and intentionally remain childless? Is that lifestyle a sin or not?”
The bible does say “children are a blessing” but it is a huge (and unsubstantiated leap) to say “childfree people are sinners.”
The Bible also says ‘killing your enemies and conquering their cities’ is a blessing from God… Does that mean I’m a sinner if I’m not in the army and fighting battles? Of course not.
