I was going to follow-up with a few notes in the comments section on the last blog post, but it’s easeir to make another blog post, especially when I show you what I found about R.C. Sproul, Jr. regarding his tweet. If you recall, this morning he sent out this tweet:
One person who challenged this tweet was Kenny Kerr who has a blog here (earlier blog reader opinemine noticed Kerr used Piper and Mohler’s names in his post to promote his point of view). Sproul took up Kerr’s invitation to visit his blog and left this comment to help explain his short sweet. Kerr and I both responded after Sproul’s comment (if the font is too small below, click here).

Ok, so I thought that was going to be the end of that, but something prompted me to do another Google search: R.C. Sproul, Jr. birth control and I stumbled upon a goldmine. Yes. I found the reason why Sproul is so adamant about birth control. I’ve been noticing that people who tweet enticing tweets usually have an agenda. I think I found it right here in the movie: “Birth Control: How Did We Get Here?”
Here’s the blurb on the movie:
“This engagingly fast-paced documentary takes a historic look at the modern church’s public embrace and overwhelming acceptance of child prevention as biblical theology.
The reinterpretation of Scripture and rejection of our church history in the mid twentieth century allowed for responsible planned procreation. No longer was the raising of godly seed seen as the primary purpose of marriage; but now marriage was redefined as a union “intended for companionship and mutual spiritual aid“. This new view, brought on by the European spread of eugenics, brought rise to a departure from centuries of universal agreement among all branches of the church. In essence, the church was complicit in championing “privacy in marriage” to allow the liberty of responsible planned parenthood, heedless of scriptural authority or precedence.
How Did We Get Here? took the team around the United States capturing captivating interviews with authors, historians, theologians, radio talk show hosts and others, such as Dr. George Grant, Dr. Allan Carlson, Geoffrey Botkin, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Lila Rose, Kevin Swanson, and Julie Roys.”
Take a look at those names. These are key people in the homeschool movement who promote the full-quiver lifestyle, Patriarchy, courtship, homeschooling, Reconstructionism. It’s the same ol’ stuff, same people, same agenda trying to get you hooked into it with their spiel because they have the right interpretation of scripture and if you aren’t doing it their way, you are wrong.
So, there you have it. His tweet was part of his agenda.
Oh, before I forget. R.C. Sproul, Jr. did respond to some of my tweets here:
So he says he’s not Reconstructionist. Ok, I suppose it really doesn’t matter. Here, you decide for yourself. There’s one thing I’ve noticed about Reconstructionists. I’ve never heard of any self-identified Reconstructionist. I’ve never seen any church labeled as Reconstructionist. But if you look at what they believe and watch their actions, it sure seems like evidence speaks for itself. You know the saying, “If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a
