We have a unique opportunity in history to see
what happens when we ignore God’s command. God commanded us to be fruitful and
multiply, and encouraged us to obey Him by linking hearth and home, wife and
children as the mark of a man favored and blessed by God. The secularists have
spent the 19th century selling the opposite view to society, often with unintended
As a result, Europe, which has always been
decades ahead of America in secularization, is undergoing population decline at
an alarming rate; Europe’s dropping birth rate is leading to its de-population
“in numbers not seen since the Black Death in the fourteenth century.”
Even Newsweek recently reported on the
population decline in Europe: in Germany, a low birth rate and rural
swaths of the countryside back to its primal state, with
taking the place of people. Theologian and author George Weigel ties Europe’s dangerous population decline
to its spiritual decline, which is bringing about the disintegration of the
traditional family, in his book, The Cube and the Cathedral: Europe, America,
and Politics Without God.
What the Mohammedans could not do for the
valor of Christendom’s defenders from 732 ad at the battle of Poitiers through
the defeat of the Ottoman Turks in World War I, Europe is doing to herself by
committing generational suicide. The only demographic with a positive birth
rate is the immigrants, and the majority of these are Muslim.
So the next time someone asks you in the
grocery store, “Are all these children yours?!” in that incredulous and
condescending tone, just smile.
