Al Mohler on the Pill

Though these have been out a while, I only just read them today. As always, his thoughts are well-articulated and interesting. Feel free to post responses and/or thoughts. I'm not saying I agree 100% with him; I just like that he's bringing it up as a question for Christians to consider and discuss. He's right: for so long we've just accepted birth control of all kinds, for all reasons-- sex both in and out of marriage-- without looking deeper and trying to discern the world view behind it... and trying to peer ahead on its effect on our worldview and our health. (Of course, here he isn't discussing the use of the Pill or other hormonal therapies for things like skin conditions or regulation of irregular cycles-- those uses of the Pill are medicinal, not elective.)

Randy Alcorn has a great booklet about using birth-control. It's called Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions? I found it very helpful anyway.
