First, I am totally against all forms of homosexuality. It is a sin and abomination before God and Man.


However, on the issue of Artificial Insemination, there are arguments in its favor. Mary had Jesus through a process that we can describe as Spiritual insemination. That is a wisdom of God which He expects us to imitate.


Hence It is not a sin for a woman approaching her menopause who is not lucky to have a husband to have a baby through artificial insemination. That is applying wisdom to solve a problem following the Bible's teachings.


It is very similar to adopting a child. In adoption, you legally buy a seed that has already germinated, while in artificial insemination, you legally buy a raw seed and have it grow in your womb. So what is the difference? Since you are buying the origin of a man that is not your husband in both cases.?

You cannot compare the pregnancy of the Immaculate Virgin Mary to artificial Insemination. Why? The seed of Mary's pregnancy was not the seed of a man. Artificial Insemination is using the root of a man to cause fertilization.


It is a sin if the seed is not of a woman's husband.


Adoption and Insemination are not similar. Have you just stated their difference? One is making a baby; the other is making a baby yours.

The only legal way to make a baby in God's sight is to get married; another is sin.


There is no argument here.


Note artificial Insemination is not a sin if the seed is from the husband.

The only problem is that you have refused to be pragmatic in your approach to this issue. I did not say that your 'Immaculate Virgin' Mary had Artificial Insemination with the sperm of a man. She conceived through the Holy Spirit, similar to Artificial Insemination since the seed was not from her husband. So since Mary was of the human body, so the Holy Spirit would have Artificially Inseminated her with a SPERM!


You agreed with me that adoption is not a sin. When you adopt a child, are you not buying seeds from a man that is not your husband? Is that not the same ideology as Artificial Insemination?


Religion has made many of us rigid. Do you even know that God permits a man to have kids for his brother if he is dead or impotent? No Pastor will tell you these things, but you have to reach the point of maturity where you will not regard all compromise as sin. I forgot to select anonymous in my previous post.

The Holy Bible, the Word of God, is the Standard and guide for all who desire to please God here on Earth and make Heaven in Eternity.


Gen 1:27-28

So God created man in his image, in the image of God created him; male and female created him.


And God blessed them, and said unto them, Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the Earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth.


GOD Almighty is the Owner and originator of our lives, the Institutor of Procreation, the Institutor of Marriage, and the Institutor of Life. Whatever He proscribes for Humanity is the only acceptable way.


Whatever humans try to do outside GOD'S order is Ungodly, Unnatural, and an abomination. It does not matter how palatable your reason sounds.


GOD'S order for Copulation is between a man and woman. Husband and wife. Anything outside is evil.


If you do not desire to get married as a man or woman, you should not also choose to carry the benefits of marriage. No matter how the world, technology, and so on change, the world of GOD will not Change.


So let's quit trying to Innovate, advance, and modify Iniquity, debasement, and evil because everyone will stand before GOD to account for what is done in this body.


Getting inseminated because I don't want to get married is unnatural, abomination, and evil and is the same as homosexuality, Beastility, etc.


Let us Fear GOD ALMIGHTY and obey HIS word.

Proverb 3:7

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.


If you desire to make Heaven, you will seek to obey and please God and quit trying to be wise in your own eyes.

Who is this writing nonsense? The OP is about a lady who is scared of getting older and if this is an option for her in the future. So you expect that she should wait and let her menopause come and snatch the only opportunity for her to have a child in life abi? YOU ARE A COW.


Why are so-called Nigerian Christians so daft to take a decision that will better their life, except they look at it through the lens of religion? Why do they think their lives should conform to the norms of the church?


Mr commenter, there are only two people in life that are interested in one's life. God and the individual. Every other person na wash. Let any lady that's interested in artificial insemination, if she has no other option, get it and feel the joy of motherhood, and shut that your trap called mouth spewing rubbish

Everything is sin, yet Nigeria is the world capital of sinners.

So who are the righteous ones, then? Don't blame the useless commenter. They are lost sheep. I blame poverty and poor quality of life. Else who will have time listening to them and their heaven versus hell stories?

Ladies, please don't listen to the fool up there. The same bible that said the woman was created out of man cannot be supported by nature or science. All men come through the woman.


The quote you made is not even related to artificial insemination. You were busy saying the bible is the word of God and a guide to all, yet no verses mentioned up there denounce insemination.


Just because you are not okay with it does not mean you use the bible to back up your claim. There was a time people were saying rapping and breaking dance in the church was a sin.

Today is world pharmacist day. Let's join hands and celebrate pharmacists' contributions to health care.

The same Bible told us to be as wise as a Serpent. Remember, the Serpent is another name for Satan. Hence if Science is satanic, as you claim, then God expects you to know and believe in Science.


The truth is that God is the first Scientist in existence. He created the heavens and Earth. He told us to dominate over His creatures by also becoming creative - Genesis 1: 28.


That is the origin of Science. We now have Dominion over the Sea through Ships. We now have Dominion over the air through Aeroplanes and rockets. We have Dominion over our body through medicine.


Artificial insemination is an imitation of the Spiritual insemination of Mary by the Holy Spirit. It is not a sin if it is done with good motives. If you do not believe in menopause, then marry a 60 years old woman and wait for her to have a child.

Man of little faith and understanding. Buy knowledge and do not sell it. Pray to God to help your confidence.

My people die spiritually for lack of knowledge. Because you reject knowledge, I will leave you - Hosea 4:6.


It was God that gave the Scientist who invented Artificial insemination such knowledge. Hence a man will be mocking God if he rejects a solution God has provided for his problem.


It is not an act of faith but foolishness. It is like a man refusing to send his kid to school, believing that God will make the child begin to read and write by faith.


Only when you have tried all available solutions to your problem within your means can you hold God by His Word and await His Divine intervention if the problem persists.

They can adopt children.

Add a comment...

I agree with you that they can adopt. However, what is the difference between adoption and Artificial insemination?

Adoption is like someone buying an orange fruit, while Artificial insemination is like someone buying seed of orange to plant on her farm.


Hence both adoption and artificial insemination have the same objectives. However, Artificial Insemination has the advantage of creating a bond between the mother and child and also preventing the child from being ridiculed as an adopted child by society.

And finally, whether single or double, any lady can decide to do whatever she wishes to do with herself—her life.


You say those who don't desire to marry should not choose the benefits of marriage. Abeg, who are you to decide what a fellow human should or should not desire?

The Almighty God did the first insemination when Mary got pregnant without sexual intercourse. That can be described as Spiritual insemination.


Artificial insemination is an imitation of what God did with Mary. Is it a sin to imitate an act of God when a lonely woman without a husband is approaching her menopause? This is the reason the Bible advised Christians to seek Wisdom.

Childhood indoctrination is the reason why religion is still vital today. Remove that, and faith would have died centuries ago.

WomenLast activity 2 days ago

Why do we people have to rationalize everything through religious eyes before doing it? I mean, when you look at what you wrote, a single lady that's growing older now asks if it's a sin or not. Let her go for what she needs, and she should forget what people will say.


The pastor dishing out hell, fire, and heaven attributes; how are you sure he will make that heaven sef? She should do what she needs to do to have children that she'll call her own now that she's still fertile

Well, humans are natural followers. We all look for something, someone to believe in. If not religion, then science. If not science, then cosmic imagination or mythology. The notion that we can do anything we like at any time is a theory that only a select few genuinely dare to explore, especially women, as they tend to second guess most of their decisions.

The said Sister will have a lot of explanations to make as many will conclude she committed fornication. The Bible admonishes us to abstain from all appearances of evil. Pregnant fornicators would soon start claiming they had artificial insemination if such practices were allowed by the church.

Add a comment...

God defines sin in His Word, not by your church of men. And what scripture refers to as evil is that which God has declared sin, and not what your churches, your pastors, and MOGs think. 


As for Artificial insemination, there is no indication that it is a sin against God, either literally or inferred, since God never decreed that conception, as far as childbearing is concerned, must only take place via intercourse between a man and a woman.

Pastor Kumuyi has been trying lately to unfetter the members of his church from unnecessary dogma and traditions of men, which had made his congregation shrink and unappealing to the younger generation and, therefore, not have any future sustainability.


He is trying to untie them from dangerous beliefs that they had previously assumed were the manifestations of holiness but are mere human standards.


But in doing this, baba has sometimes got more people confused than before. In this case of women covering their heads in the church, it is clearly written in the scripture he quoted (1 Corinthians 11:5). So one wonders what exactly the trouble is if an usher demands that a woman cover her head at the entrance of the church.


Maybe prophecy is not general, given that prophecy is a gift for a select few, which makes it exclusive, but can anyone enter the church and not pray? The rest of the verses in the chapter explained the whole issue clearly (from 1 Corinthians 11:6).


Pastor Kumuyi should be careful in throwing his church into confusion. The younger generation he is trying to attract is even those who need biblical guidance from their entitlement tendencies. They should not be indulged in creating their own rules.


Baba should know that not everyone will be comfortable coming to church. There is nothing wrong with women covering their heads in the church. Christianity is by faith.

But we have 17 Governors in the Southern part of Nigeria and all of them are Christians and some of them with a Christian deputy is that not Demonic??, which mean No MUSLIM Governor in the whole Southern Region of the Country, where is Mr. Babachir Lawal to speak for Southern Muslims ??? But the truth is that this Mr. Babachir Lawal was one of those that recommended Kasim Shetima as one of the running mate for BAT??


Why didn’t he raise alarm and speak again it before confined by BAT, Nigerian politicians always like to ride on the emotion of the people to fight their own W@r for them. Why the noise when we have many other presidential candidates like Atiku, Obi, Sowore and others, abeg stop all the noise and go for any candidate you believe in. God Bless Nigeria 🇳🇬.

yes, which is why we have other candidates, if anyone is not representing our interests, we are free to choose another one, no need to set the country on fire. Nigeria politicians are desperate ALL OF THEM.

are those states Muslim dominated? How many northern states have a Christian governor?


That’s not the case here! This is a federal case and Muslim Muslims or Christian Christian should never be encouraged.

then where is the main development that reaches the happen, at the federal or state level??? Meanwhile in the north at least there are at least 2 Governors that are Christians, Also we have a Pastor as the VP right now, what impact has he made rather than sharing money to market men and women??? We need to think beyond religion in order to progress in Nigeria. No country on earth with religious sentiments ever progresses.
