Bad Theology, Bad Economics

This Wall Street Journal editorial alerts us that Malthusian thought is still alive and well in America. Thinking that the way to save the environment or to alleviate poverty is to stop having as many children is both a denial of the creation mandate to be fruitful and multiply, as well as a denial of the reality that children are not merely consumers, they are producers. Children are a gift from the Lord (Psalm127), and we need to be teaching our children and grandchildren to beware the bad worldviews that lurk all around us.
