Let me try this again, part by part.
This question came to me while reading Genesis.
"16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them."
So basically, Adam and Eve were removed from Eden to the cursed land because they violated God’s rule. Unless there’s some other verse in other parts of the bible, it seems being born in this world is then coming to a cursed land. So part of the reason for this post is to get perspectives on this. Worthy of note is that, before the two broke God’s rule, he’d said to them to multiply.
That’s part 1.
Part 2 is predicated on part 1. Having a child is bringing another person into existence. Considering the above (if the above is accurate) then what good does it do the children to be brought into this world? Are there any unselfish reasons to bring children into this world? This is a question and not a statement.
I hope that clarifies it a bit.
Edit: Let me add this component. Would it be accurate to say there’s no command from God to have children? So a lot of choice (individual responsibility) is involved here.
