I was wondering if it was bad for me not to like kids. Even when I was a kid, I had a problem with immature kids. It says in the bible to go forth and multiply but I don’t want to have children. Most people say I’ll change when I get older, but I’ve been this way for years now and my dislike for little kids and babies is only growing. Any helpful advice?

Of course not! I was much the same. And besides, God wouldn’t want a kid born into a house that wouldn’t love it. Even godly people can have no children. No one calls priests the pinnacle of unholiness, and on principle they can have no children. No one calls infertile people Un-Christian, or people with diseases they don’t want to pass down.

Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind.

While there are specific commands to “go forth and multiply” given to certain people in the Bible (Adam and Eve, Noah’s family), I am not aware of any that command every individual Christian to multiply. What verses in particular trouble you?
I do not believe that there is any Biblical mandate to have children nor that everyone is called to do so. I am unsure if I will choose/be able to have children in the future or not for a variety of reasons. And, while people say that you’ll change your mind when you get older and some people do, not everybody does and whether you have kids or not in the future is none of their business.

It was just the general ‘go forth and multiply’

I wouldn’t worry about “go forth and multiply” too much. The times when God commands it are two very unique times in Earth’s history where he is talking to the only people on Earth. If they hadn’t gone forth and multiplied, that would have been a serious problem. However, that does not mean that every Christian has to have children.

Not everyone is cut out to be a parent. God has very specific purposes for all of us. Maybe you’re not meant to be a mom, and that’s ok because He has something great in your future!
