The contraceptive mentality lacks historical backing

Charles D. Provan, in his helpful book, The Bible and Birth Control, said,

“We have found not one orthodox theologian to defend birth control before the 1900s. Not one! On the other hand we have found that many highly regarded Protestant theologians who were enthusiastically opposed to it, all the way back to the very beginning of the Reformation…

Those in favour of birth control will find no one in the orthodox Protestant camp for the first four centuries to ally themselves with.”
