we have had a few threads about aborting children if you believed they would be born with major diseases / issues....how about if you believed there was a strong possibility any children you had would be born that way....would you still go ahead and procreate?

Not talking aborting....talking the impregnating in the first place.

I'd get a vasectomy and adopt.

Plenty of unwanted healthy children out there.

When you really do believe in a God who is

1) absolutely sovereign
2) absolutely good
3) absolutely desires (and gives) good gifts to/for us, even if we don't see them as such

......then it's really easy to leave such matters in God's hands.

I have no dispute with people who decide not to have children out of fear of genetic defect, etc, FWIW.

Is there a way you can know something like that ahead of time?

I'm thinking he's referring to genetic diseases or diseases transferable from the mother.
