Misconceptions? Christian choices in family planning

Session date: Wednesday 6th August 2014 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: LT13 Session track

Since the middle of the twentieth century rapid advances in contraception and fertility treatment (including IVF) have made it increasingly challenging for Christians to know how to honour God in the area of family planning. Some churches take an absolutist line against all forms of artificial birth control, while others leave decisions entirely to the individual without ever discussing the underlying issues openly. This seminar will lay biblical foundations for thinking about the beginning of life and God’s purpose in procreation with the aim of helping Christians to follow Jesus faithfully in the choices they make.
