In January of 2011, Our Full House gave away a great video to one of our readers called Children Are a Blessing. Our family greatly enjoyed the film. Moore Family Films is now offering the movie Children Are a Blessing for FREE until April 20, 2012. Here is a little bit about the movie...
There is a popular saying in the Church today that goes something like this: "If the Lord is not the Lord of all, He is not Lord at all." Of course, the Lord is the Lord of all whether we acknowledge Him as Sovereign over all things or not. In Christendom today, what is meant by this popular phrase is that we desire to submit willingly to the Lord in every area of our lives. But do we? Just saying this doesn't make it so. We must look to the Word of God to provide us with the answers to all the issues of life and from a willing heart, obey the principles found therein.
Children are a Blessing is a testimony of how the Lord worked to open our hearts and minds to trust Him as Sovereign over all things- even the womb. The purpose of this film is to encourage families to trust in the truth of the Word of God for the blessing of children and to stop allowing the current humanistic and secular philosophies of the day (which have even infiltrated much of the church) to impact our thinking and ultimately our actions. The church at large today considers itself to be pro-life, and rightly so. Pro life is most certainly an anti-abortion stance, but doesn't the very name mean "for life," also implying "not preventing life?" Should we not also consider that the prevention of children with potentially abortifacient drugs such as the birth control pill or other methods of "planning" family size would be wrong as well?
The opening and closing of the womb is clearly articulated in Scripture to be the Lord's doing. Shouldn't we as Christians simply and willingly trust Him in faith to open and close the womb as He sees fit? Does it please the Lord when His people prevent the blessing of children? We must think through this issue with Biblical principles, not human reasoning.
