God and Fertility

Stories about a dangerous lack of fertility are becoming common in the conservative press.

Recently, Southern Baptists have become increasingly vocal about the need for biological reproduction.

Today, an article in USA Today links the "death of God" and empty European churches with a warning that Europe is slowly depopulating itself.

It is hard for me to comprehend why low rates of biological reproduction should be of concern to Christians. From the beginning, Christianity was a missionary religion. It is spread by the proclamation of the Word, not by insemination.
