Birth Control Condemned In Bible
disagree most vociferously!...& if you think God killed Onan because he practiced birth control you're completely delusional!
No, you are wrong. Even in the early Church it was understood that God killed Onan for birth control. Here's St. Augustine (4th century):
"Intercourse even with one's legitimate wife is unlawful and wicked where the conception of the offspring is prevented. Onan, the son of Juda, did this, and the Lord killed him for it."
The claim that God killed Onan for failing in his duty toward his brother is false, and it makes no sense because the punishment for that was not death but a slight humiliation (Deut. 25:7-10). Onan was killed, however, for a contraceptive act. It sounds like you are lashing out in order to justify a sin. The primary purpose of the marriage act is the procreation and education of children. When people take positive steps to avoid that, they sin. That's why the Catholic Church has correctly taught that contraception is a mortal sin.
