Quoting the bible incorrectly

All key Protestant reformers, until 1930 upheld the natural law, Martin Luther said, “The exceedingly foul deed of Onan, (Gen. 38:8–10), is a most disgraceful sin. It is far more atrocious than incest and adultery.” Other key Protestant , John Wesley, John Calvin were just as horrified by any use of birth control.

For those who quote the bible incorrectly stating the bible dose not forbid artificial birth control had best find someone to interpret the Word Of God for them as the Eunuch did, (Acts 8, 31).

So many of us have selfish reasons to misquote God, but the true anger is aroused in believers for the countless souls that will be lost by this one person incorrectly reading Holy Scripture, because they, as this person must do, do scriptural gymnastics to continue this and other immoral lifestyle acts.
