The other day I saw a television program examining a deeply religious Christian family with 15 children born over 20 years of marriage.
There were so many children in the family the parents had to acquiesce their direct rights over morality and education and “Buddy Up” the children so an older child had responsibility for a younger one throughout the day. That struck me as morally wrong and educationally irresponsible.
The parents, especially the mother, were both terribly proud of their excessive progeny and they pronounced every action they made as a family was done in the name of God.
How does having 15 children from one mother honor God?
Are there better ways to serve God than to populate the world with an abundance of children that the parents cannot even manage or control?
