The young, restless, and reformed Kevin DeYoung has used the phrase “militant fecundity” in a appeal for evangelicals to have larger families. Reviewing a new book by Jonathan Last called, What to Expect When No One’s Expecting: America’s Coming Demographic Disaster,DeYoung has used a phrase that, when googling, only turns up either apologetics for the patriocentric movement or their writings by their critics. Interestingly, Steve Brown from the Nation Center for the Family Integrated Church claims to have coined the phrase. Just a few weeks ago I linked to an ad for a discernment conference where Brown is sharing the speakers’ platform with notable evangelicals like Phil Johnson. What is going on? Can these people who are opening the door to the reconstructionist movement really not get it that they are legitimizing their agenda?
If anyone still thinks militant fecundity is about seeing children as a blessing,I encourage them to listen to these podcasts from my archives.
