Followers of Christ should take note of the fact that the first listed command to mankind was "Be fruitful and multiply." This command is repeated over again in the Bible several times (for instance, in Genesis 9:1 and 35:11). This is a command of God, indeed the first command to a married couple. Birth control obviously involves disobedience to this command, for birth control attempts to prevent being fruitful and multiplying. Therefore birth control is wrong, because it involves disobedience to the Word of God. Nowhere is this command done away with in the entire Bible; therefore it still remains valid for us today.
