'The world is over populated.' Many would have us believe that, but it is not true.
God says: ‘Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it…’ Genesis 1:28 The earth is not over populated, nor could it ever be, because God’s Word stands. He has not changed his command. He has not added a codicil to the Bible saying: 'OK, stop, that's enough; you're having too many babies!'
If you drive across England, Scotland, Wales or Canada, the United States or France, the only countries I have ever travelled through, you will soon see that there is a lot of room and it is mostly empty. I suspect the same is true of every other country of any size, including India and China. “But we need that land to grow crops.” Nonsense. Many countries pay farmers NOT to grow crops. We have a superabundance of food. So why are some people going hungry? Not because of over population, but because of man’s evil, because of corrupt politicians, wars and human greed.
But surely India is over populated? Only with rats, which eat so much of the food that people don’t have enough. It is India’s religion which causes hunger, not over population. “But we are so overcrowded.” Only because we all clump up together in cities and large towns. If we would spread out more, we would find there is plenty of room for all, no matter how many children we have.
In Britain they won’t let people build on most of the land, so yes, we are crowded into small houses and flats. It is a political decision, nothing to do with having too many babies. One big regret of my life is that I did not marry young and have a large family. I believe that the world is under populated. Certainly the western countries are. We are having to allow large numbers of immigrants in because there is no one to do many of the jobs. Why is there no one to do the jobs? Because we have murdered millions of our babies who could now be fine, strong citizens, doing the jobs.
God, in His incredible mercy, forgives us individually, if we repent, but nationally we are under His divine judgment. We will not get away with it... Do not listen to the flawed mathematics of doomsters who predict famine caused by overpopulation. Famines will come. We know that because the Lord told us in Matthew 24. But they will not be caused by families having too many babies. God loves babies; in fact it is He who forms them in the womb. Since I found the truth (Jesus is the Truth) at the age of 36, more and more I realise that the love of the truth is one thing which marks out the true Christian. The Lord Jesus said that His Father wants those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. It is high time, dear fellow believer, that we embraced the truth and rooted out the lies. by Pat Franklin
