This is usually not something I would normally write about, at least not from the source I'm drawing from. However, I think it is a message that needs to be heard and expounded upon, especially when those in Hollywood raise the issue. Starlet Megan Fox, dubbed the "sexiest woman in the world" at one time, recently came out saying that pregnancy was "creating a life inside of you" and endorsed monogamy as "hot."
For many in the Hollywood community, this will rattle their cages. Pregnancy creates life? That's a foreign concept for many Hollywood liberals who openly support the murder of the unborn.
However, when the "Transformers" actress was asked by the trashy magazine known as Cosmopolitan whether or not pregnancy was "hot," Fox replied that it is "hot."
"You are creating a life inside you," she said, "who will become a person who will change the course of history, no matter what they do."
"There's a power that comes with having a child" because "you've done something incredible that no man could ever do or understand," she told Laurie Sandell of Cosmopolitan.
She also expressed that her career was somewhat bitter-sweet with regard to her being a mother.
"I'm grateful for my career, but I also resent it because it takes me away from the thing I feel I'm meant to be doing," she said. "Once you become a mother, especially a working mother, you feel like you can never give enough of yourself."
Fox didn't stop there either. She also promoted monogamy, something that is becoming more frawned upon in our culture. "There's no other option. You can't be in a relationship without monogamy," she expressed.
Understand, these three things… yes there are three issues here, are biblical in nature, though Fox does not cite particular Bible passages.
First there is the issue of life. As I've written about, without safeguarding life and understanding that is what grows in the female's womb, then all bets are off when it comes to the murder of the most innocent among us, which leads us to progressively extending those murders to beyond birth.
Moses reiterated this in the text of the Old Testament, long before the scientific studies revealed that life is in the blood and therefore, when the sperm and egg join together, there is life:
For the life of the flesh is in the blood (Lev. 17:14)
And that it is God forming people in the womb, not blobs of tissue:
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)
Second, there is the issue of motherhood. I'm sure as Ms. Fox grows older she will realize more and more what many women have, and that is that time with one's children is incredibly important. As has been said, the hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world. She obviously alluded to that in her statement about about a "person who will change the course of history." I agree, and so does Scripture as it admonishes older women to teach younger women to:
…be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. (Titus 2:3-4)
Furthermore, parents are to teach their own children. The State is not to be involved in education.
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:5-9)
Finally, there is the idea of monogamy. Fox was married in 2010. While I don't know if she is referencing monogamy in a general sense, which might include sodomites or not, the idea of marriage and monogamy go hand in hand, which is why we should not be trying to redefine it. Marriage is a good and honorable thing, according to Scripture.
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4)
Marriage is also the way God designed for a man and woman to not only satisfy their sexual desires and produce children, but is a picture of Christ and His Church.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. (Eph. 5:22-27)
This is a picture of what it means to love, and those who would seek to pervert this holy institution by redefining it or making it a cause for any sort of abuse will be judged by God.
Fox has been known as a "sex symbol" for her photos and some of her movie roles. There are things that she continues to promote in the article that definitely requires repentance, such as her finding Ellen Degeneres "sexy" and the desires she had as a teenager to read Cosmo, which was not what he mother wanted her reading. The photo shoot that goes along with the article is also troubling, considering what she is attempting to promote with monogamy.
Megan Fox is not the best example for promoting life and marriage and this interview was definitely against the grain of the stuff Cosmopolitan normally puts out, which includes various sexual ideas and the promotion of the murder of the unborn. Perhaps, it will erupt into a conversation that will get many men and women contemplating these issues more and it should be an opportunity for Bible believing Christians to speak out even more on these issues.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
