The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

I'm starting to doubt whether or not having children in this God forsaken world is a good thing brethrens.

What's the point of having a progeny in a world that is going to hell ? They will witness things that no one should. Just to have more people in His kingdom ? Then why stop at 4, 5 ? Why not produce thousand of offsprings ?

Someone enlighten me on anti-natalism (or Nihilism as a whole) and Christianity, please. God bless.

things are going back to Christianity it's just slow burning

Also we have the kids God wants us too, All Christians agreed until the 1930s and the diabolic Anglicans tried normalizing contraception.

Without contraception it's God's decision, it's not yours. That's how it was done for thousands of years and how decent Christians still do it now.

>What's the point of having a progeny in a world that is going to hell ?

"The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." It's precisely because the world is going down the drain that we need as many Christians as we can have, and how else do you make new Christians except by evangelization + raising your own children as such?

>They will witness things that no one should.

Every individual has been witnessing something that no one should - death, and sin. Nothing has changed.

>Just to have more people in His kingdom ? Then why stop at 4, 5 ? Why not produce thousand of offsprings ?

Children are a gift of God. He decides how many you will have. Just don't go out of your way to prevent His will.

>Someone enlighten me on anti-natalism (or Nihilism as a whole) and Christianity, please. God bless.

Stop thinking in practical terms. Christianity is far from a "practical" religion. We only listen to the promises of our Lord Jesus and look forward to the parousia. Find a vocation to support the Church, and, through the Church, to heal the world - whether it is by getting married and having childen, by becoming a theologian and writing of our experience of God for the sake of others, by becoming a monastic, by getting a job that supports the Church, by becoming a lay ascetic, etc. - and don't think the world has more power than we do. Christ conquered the world.

Don't feel called to have children? Serve Christ and his Church in other ways.

Personally, I'm reluctant about having kids mainly because other people caused me so much suffering that I just want people to leave me alone.

Not having children is a specific calling from God.

For example, God commanded Isaiah to have children, but commanded Jeremiah not to.

Hi Noah, name’s Mark!

I think the point is that Noah had children even though the world was literally going to come to an end. It puts OP in perspective.

the world has always been filled with godlessness and sin since the fall. there is nothing new under the sun.
