The Sinful Part

(RH controversies)

Without pointing accusing fingers at others, it would be good to be sincere with ourselves in really searching for the truth in the contraceptive issue of the RH Bill which certain legislators are proposing. What is the moral truth behind, seeing that the Catholic Churchis opposing it.

The Catholic Church teaches that sexual relations outside of legitimate marriage is a grave sin, in fact part of the messages of Fatima were attesting that many souls go into Hell precisely because of sins of impurity. It would be a disgraceful thing if we would come to know why this Bill is being proposed by some legislators because of the money being offered, under the table. As you know, the contraceptives would entice people to sex, without the possibility of bringing in the concomitant responsibilities of unintended pregnancy. Even marital infidelities may be concealed this way, thus providing temptation to worse and continuing sins of the flesh.

The anti-life (culture of death) groups argue that no life is being violated by the contraceptives, only the union of sperm and ovum is being blocked. That is a very cunning style of arguing since the natural potential life is being blocked. Moreover, many of thesecontraceptive devices are abortifacient, thus killing a newly conceived fetus. This is against the first right of man: life, from which proceeds all others. Don't we understand that proliferating the contraceptive devices is tantamount to blocking future births of humans. Can you imagine the earth almost entirely depopulated?

"Perhaps you think that we are again apologizing; but no: we speak in Christ and before God, and I do this for you, dear friends, to build you up. I fear that if I go and see you, I might not find you as I would wish, and you in turn, might not find me to your liking. I might see rivalries, envy, grudges, disputes, slanders, gossip, conceit, disorder. Let it not be that in coming again to you, God humble me because of you and I have to grieve over so many of you who live in sin, on seeing that they have not yet given up an impure way of living, their wicked conduct and the vices they formerly practiced" (2 Cor. 12:19-21).

"Nothing unclean will enter it (the holy city Jerusalem), or anyone who does what is evil and false but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life" (Rev. 21:27).
