Theology and Big Families


Al Mohler reports this morning on a phenomenon that has been widely noted and discussed in recent years - "those who take belief in God most seriously tend to have more babies. For many years, the conventional wisdom has held that demography determines destiny. Well, now it appears that theology determines demography." Over and over again, observers of all stripes are noticing that those who really believe that there is something to live for bigger than themselves reproduce far more than those who believe that life is all about themselves.

Makes sense to me.

As Voddie Baucham says about how to have a greater impact on an increasingly-pagan culture... "Outbreed 'em!"
