As a Christian, the word of God should always be the ultimate and faith in Jesus the all. On this note, I bring to you the reasons why In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is unchristian and how the word of God is against it.
First, let me explain what happens in the process of IVF. A woman who is having difficulty conceiving or getting pregnant may opt for IVF. She goes to an IVF clinic and requests for one. She gets stimulated with an hormone that makes her produce eggs at a very high rate. She may produce up to 50 eggs
The eggs produced are extracted from her and placed in a petri dish. Her man of choice, perhaps husband, plays with his manhood and ejaculates into a container. What the man ejaculated is applied to the woman’s eggs which are now in a petri dish. Then fertilization happens.
After fertilization, the outcome is watched for a few days. All the eggs will be fertilized but many will be deformed. Why? Because conception is not supposed to happen outside of a woman. God designed it to happen inside of a woman’s womb.
Out of 50 fertilized eggs, 25 may be okay while the rest deformed. Out of the 25 that are okay, six will be carefully selected based on what is believed to be the best or desirable traits.
Now, out of 50, six were selected. What do you think happens to the 44 left? They are flushed down the toilet – that is human life getting flushed because life behind at conception. What just happened is murder.
1. IVF makes you commit murder
Exodus 20:13 KJV
13 Thou shalt not kill.
Sadly, humans are so depraved and blinded that they have no regard for those lives. You might want to say life starts at birth, not at conception. The Bible says life starts at conception and regards the conception as a child. Isaiah 7:14 says “a virgin shall conceive”. When that same verse was quoted in Mathew 1:23, it says “a virgin shall be with child”. What was flushed down the toilet are children, human lives. It is not your job to kill, because God said “I kill, and I make alive” Deut 32:39.
So, for the six, two fertilized eggs are injected into the woman, while the rest four are frozen.
2. IVF makes you pervert nature
It is not natural to have your baby in a petri dish. It is supposed to happen in a womb as God designed it. It is a sin worse than abortion. In abortion, you kill one life. In IVF, you kill 30 to 50 lives just to have a child. Stop perverting the ways of the Lord because you are desperate for a child.
Acts 13:10 KJV
And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
3. IVF makes you commit stealing
Psalm 127:3 KJV
3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
God rewards people with children. He’s the one that gives children. If you are married but yet to have a child, it means it’s not yet time for your reward of a child from God. It means God is not yet ready to reward. But since you are so impatient and can’t wait, you decide to put yourself in God’s position by rewarding yourself with a baby through IVF. You achieved this by per perverting nature and committing murder. You player God and designed your own baby. You have stolen from God because you couldn’t wait for him to give it to you.
4. IVF makes you out yourself in the place of God
Genesis 29:31 KJV
And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.
Now, let’s read the next chapter and see what Rachel did after she saw she couldn’t have children.
30 And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.
2 And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?
Rachel cried to her husband Jacob to give her a child. But Jacob was smart enough to know that it is not in his power to do so but it is God’s power. He cautioned Rachel by telling her that it is not in his place to give a child because it is God that rewards with children. But Rachel wanted him too play the role of God by saying “Give me children”.
Jacob replied saying, “Am I in God’s stead?” He made it clear that he won’t assume God’s position by creating a baby for her. But that is what people do today when they go have IVF. They neglect God and assume his role, design a baby and murder others. See sin Satan committed when he said he will be like the Most High. He lifted himself to the level of God. Jacob said no, he won’t go down that route.
Look, no woman in the Bible didn’t have kids. Sarah, Rachel etc all had children at God’s time. They asked for it and God gave them. They didn’t steal it or designed it.
5. It shows a lack of faith in God
Today, we have people who haven’t waited for more than two years rushing to have IVF. In the Bible, we have those who waited for about 20 years before having children. They waited for God and had faith in him. But not today, people prefer to do things their way, not God’s way. They go design babies for themselves against God’s will. What about having children you won’t enjoy?
Trust in God, because his time is the best. His reward is the best.
Stay away from IVF.
