The Power to Create Life

April 5, 2018

The means by which mortal life is created is divinely appointed. Without a way to bring children
into this world, God could not fulfill His work and His Glory; to bring to pass our immortality and
eternal life with Him. God gave us, His children, the power of procreation; not for our pleasure,
but for His will, to accomplish His work. When we seek to use that sacred, God-given power
solely for our own pleasure; we work against Him and His plan, and we cause much pain and
suffering in our own lives and in the lives that we create. We cause a disintegration of families,
the foundation of our societies, that leads to the downfall of nations and eventually our entire
civilization.


God gives us commandments that help us follow His plan to become like Him. He gave us the
Law of Chastity; sexual relationships only between a man and a woman to whom we are legally
and lawfully wedded. And He commanded us, "Thou shalt not commit adultery "; have sexual
relationships with those we are not married to. He created these laws and gave us the true
pattern of marriage to help us know the best and most effective circumstances to create and
sustain life. 

 

God commands that the sacred powers of procreation be employed only between a man and a
woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife. God's purpose for marriage and sexual
relationships is to create life in a family and in a home where a child can be safely nurtured, to
learn and grow and become all that they were created to be. According to Mazlow, the most
basic needs of any human being are physiological, safety, and love, or belonging. When we
create life, it should only be within a family that is bound together within the bonds of matrimony
between a man and a women. This provides the perfect setting for the birth of a child and the
optimal support to meet their basic needs of food, shelter and security within a family that they
belong to, who will love and care for them. This family organization and lifelong support is
critical for raising healthy, happy and successful children, youth, and adults.


Additionally, when we seek to fulfill our sexual desires outside of marriage, we cause a multitude
of emotional and spiritual problems (not to mention physical - sexually transmitted diseases) for
ourselves, and those we use to satisfy our sexual needs, and the children that are often
conceived through these uncommitted relationships. Studies show that those who live this
lifestyle are more likely to divorce if they do marry, and they have a harder time creating a
lasting emotional bond with their spouse when they choose to marry. Furthermore, studies
show that children from fatherless homes are less stable and more susceptible to committing
crimes than those who are raised in a home with a married father and mother. Additionally, they
often follow in their parents footsteps by having premarital sexual relationships and divorcing if
they do get married. The children created in these free sex, no commitment relationships are
the real casualties in our society.

 

Another consequence of living an immoral life is the personal cost of disrespecting ourselves
and those we engage in sexual activity with, resulting in feelings of unworthiness and shame.
Thankfully, our God-given conscience is designed to help us follow God's Plan; it creates
feelings of guilt to warn us and help us to repent or change. The most dangerous consequence
of immorality is becoming spiritually weakened and more susceptible to Satan's temptations, 
buffetings and snares. When we sin, we cannot have God's spirit with us to guide, direct and
protect us. We become vulnerable to spiritual opposition that seeks to ensnare us in selfdestructive
habits and addictions. Since Satan and his followers do not have bodies and cannot
create life, they tempt us to misuse our bodies and our power of procreation so we cannot return
to our heavenly home, where no unclean thing can enter in. They try to make us forget who we
truly are, and stop us from achieving our divine destiny and receiving our inheritance in God's
kingdom.


Living our lives according to our own will and pleasure in sin only brings unhappiness and
misery. It interferes with God's Plan for us, and prevents us from progressing to become like
our Heavenly parents. On the other hand, living a life that is in alignment with God's Plan brings
us great peace, happiness and joy; it allows us to progress and become all that we were
created to be!
