In this show, fifteen men will compete to be the one who gets to father a child with a woman who’s ready to start a family, but with no husband. Yes, you read that right. As one article described it, this show will “skip the dating and go straight to baby-making.” Love, apparently, is optional.
No longer is sexuality—and apparently even raising children—linked with love and commitment. Instead, it’s whatever feels right or good at the time.
Now, likely many people watching this show will think it’s very strange. But, in our day when morality is determined by what feels right, many will just say, “Oh well, it’s entertainment. And if that’s what they want to do, that’s fine for them.” But the fact that such a depraved idea is being approved by a network, the cast (including “dad-chelors” who are actually signing up for this “opportunity” to compete and prove they would make a good partner and parent), filmed, and aired really points to the rampant immorality of our culture. No longer is sexuality—and apparently even raising children—linked with love and commitment. Instead, it’s whatever feels right or good at the time.
This sad example stands in stark contrast to how the Bible views sexuality:
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous. (Hebrews 13:4)
This made me think: people will fear a virus like COVID-19, but the real problem is that most people in the media, many politicians, and, really, the majority of people in general do not fear the Lord. “Labor of Love” really should be titled: “There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Romans 3:18). The verses preceding verse 18 include:
As it is written: 'None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.' 'Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.' 'The venom of asps is under their lips.' 'Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.' 'Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known.' 'There is no fear of God before their eyes' (excerpts from Romans 3:10–18, with emphasis added).
