Giving Birth Brings Salvation
Sermons and Missionary Services of Melvin J. Ballard, comp. pgs. 203‑204; “The greatest mission of woman is to give life, earth‑life, through honorable marriage, to the waiting spirits, our Father’s spirit children who anxiously desire to come to dwell here in this mortal state. All the honor and glory that can come to men and women … is but a dim thing whose luster shall fade in comparison to the high honor, the eternal glory, the ever‑enduring happiness that shall come to the woman who fulfils the first great duty and mission that devolves upon her to become the mother of the sons and daughters of God.” – Melvin J. Ballard
Matthew 22:36-39; “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
And just how do we obey the first two greatest commandments? It’s easy enough to say this is what you have to do without giving any particulars of how to do these things, but God in His mercy has even given us directives on how to honor and love Him!
Jeremiah 9:23-24; “Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.”
Here it says that we love and honor Him by acknowledging He is God. He is the One that executes judgment on us and even gives us the righteousness we need in order to spend eternity with Him!
This isn’t about us doing one more thing or fulfilling the role of motherhood. What a debasing characterization of what we need to do to gain salvation! Why would sex fulfill the means of salvation?
