The idea that sex was dirty and evil was an idea that crept into Christianity from the early Catholic teachers, who taught that sexual activity was only necessary to have children. Yet there is no such instruction that could be found in the scriptures. In fact, the Bible encourages husbands and wives to give sexual pleasure to each other. “The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife. Do not deprive each other of sexual relations.” 1. Corinthians 7:3-5 NLT  Therefore, there is nothing wrong with married couples using contraceptive methods to postpone having children until the time of their choosing as God direct them. It was God’s plan from the beginning for husbands and wives to be joined together and to become one flesh through sexual relations! (See Genesis 2:24)
