Biblical Principles on Responsible Parenthood in a World Challenged by Uncertainty
Keywords:Responsible parenthood, Christian responsibilities, higher mental abilities
In the increasingly uncertain world in which we find ourselves, parenthood brings
difficulties and responsibilities. The scriptures provide sound advice on the
principles that might direct decisions before parenthood is entertained. These
include considerations encompassing the physical, mental, social, and spiritual
domains. Are we able to provide the guidance and support necessary in the
environment we find ourselves? In making these decisions, alternative
interpretations are suggested regarding the instruction to “fill” the earth and to
have “dominion” over it. An overarching instruction given in scripture is for the
human family to reason analytically and creatively. This encompasses all aspects
of human endeavor.
