How does the Coptic Church feel about birth control and contraceptives?
I have read your honorable response on birth control; I was more than surprised of that answer 'In the Q & A section'. How can the whole church, if this response really represents any kind of a Coptic Christian Orthodox view, be of any value? I really feel burdened to give any logical response, yet I will push myself to write:
As humans, we get married to constitute a family.
We practice sex for this purpose, "to bring forth children". Using the same analogy, we eat for biological reasons to survive. We go to work to provide ourselves with food and shelter, etc. Therefore we do not eat for eating, nor do we work for working, and certainly we do not have sex just for having sex.
Those who treat their partners as a substance for their sexual appetites are not Christians, but if I can even go further and say that they are not humans at all. Most regretful I am because I was going to join the church based solely on its decree of faith:
Christology; Christ is of one center humanity & divinity united
Procession of the Holy ghost
I would like to know the view of family planning from our Orthodox faith and which methods someone can use?
What is the Coptic Orthodox Church's view on birth control?
