Is being a sperm donor a sin? Is it a sin to use a sperm donor?

    To me it is like a parent giving up parental rights.  I don't know whether or not it is considered sin.  It is a self-serving act that could have traumatic consequences.  Not the same but today a woman was on Dr. Phil talking about how dirty she felt because her mother, while married, decided to have a child with another man.  She is ashamed, humiliated and says she hates her mom.  Another lady, 5 months pregnant, was there with her boyfriend.  The boyfriend has a wife.  It didn't stop them from getting pregnant.
    Adoption is a much better option in my opinion.

    I think it is a sin for Lesbians to use a sperm donor. These are women who are forsaking nature's design and God's will, to make a mockery out of creation. I think it could also be a sin if a woman does not want to be married and bypasses a husband in favor of a turkey baster. In both these cases, these women are working outside of God's will and forsaking nature's design.

      Perhaps you could quote a bible verse were is states that it is a sin to donate or recieve sperm. If you cannot do that then who gives you the authority to invent new sins?

      D.H.: By what authority can you prove me wrong? Give me a Bible verse that says it's not a sin. I think I know my Father's mind. Besides, you may not have noticed, but the Bible was written well before human cloning, sperm clinics, and gay marriage.

      Ah so you live by the philosophy that everything is a sin unless a bible verse says it is not, rather than allowing people freedom to live their lives avoiding things that the bible explicitly states are sins.

      Head: Are you willing to concede that abortion is a heinous sin? It isn't listed in the Bible as such, but it will be found under murder. Is gay marriage a sin? Sure is, but the notion of gay marriage in the Biblical world would've been ridiculous.

    No it is not a sin. A sin is only a sin if it is mentioned in the 613 Mosaic laws and where the act requires a blood sacrifice; noting that Christ was the final blood sacrifice.

    If an act does not require a blood sacrifice as defined by God, then it is not a sin and no man has the authority to create new sins or reclassify acts as sins.

      You speak without wisdom. Are you telling me there have not been heinous acts invented by mankind since the Bible was written? Were there lesbians getting knocked-up in sperm clinics back then? No, I don't think so. By who's authority do you speak?

    2. Disappearinghead profile image76

      All heinous acts are covered by the 613 laws by such commandments not to murder, kidnap or rape. What heinous acts specifically do you believe are not covered?

      By who's authority do you invent new sins?

      One sin is parental responsibility.  Dropping sperm is not "training a child in the way you want him to go."  Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.  Eph 6:4

    6. Disappearinghead profile image76
      Disappearingheadposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Dropping sperm has nothing to do with parenting. It is not a sin otherwise the world's adolescent males would be guilty of some parenting sin each time they had an emission of sperm in the night.

      Of course the circumstances would have to be taken into consideration. Such as a family who have tried and just aren't able to have children. This is a God send to infertile couples.

      CJ. Christ never mentioned lesbians or homosexuality, let alone condemned any of them, so why do you? Don't bother quoting Leviticus unless you also wish to condemn those that wear mixed fibres, eat prawns, pork, and rare steaks, and work on Sundays.

    Why would it be a sin?  I think about women who want a child, but are single.  They go to a sperm donor to get pregnant, and bring a life into this world.  Where is the sin?  There was no premarital sex, so where is the sin?

      CJ Sledgehammerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Renee: Should single women be having children? Do you really think this is what our Heavenly Father would want? 80% of all prison inmates come from single mother households. Having a child without the benefit of a father is unhealthy for everyone.

    2. ReneeDC1979 profile image61
      ReneeDC1979posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      If a woman wants a child, sure.  Just because the parent is single does not mean the child will go to prison.  My mom raised me by herself and I have a bachelors, masters, townhouse in my name, car paid for, started 2 businesses, etc., etc.

      Renee: I am glad your mother was able to raise you right and I am glad you are a success story. Please understand that you are an exception to the rule. I don't believe the Lord wants women to have children outside of a marital relationship...period.

      So what about all of the adopted kids??  Should they not go to a single parent who can raise them, for the sake of a jail statistic?

      CJ Sledgehammerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Renee: I think we are straying from the original question somewhat. Having said that, I think anytime a child is operating with just one parent...they lose quite a bit. So, no, it is not ideal for an adopted child to be placed with a single parent.

      Too much of a good thing can be bad, right dianetrotter?  I believe that's what you're getting at.  But, why is a single parent raising a child a bad thing, or a sin?  Or being a sperm donor a bad thing or a sin?

      I can understand that some people want kids of their own;  however, there are many, many orphans that need adoption.

    The way I see it is that each and every one of us should create our own relationship with God.Everyone likes to argue and say this (what ever the subject may be) is or is not a sin. We know what the bible tells us. We know that murder is a sin, cheating is a sin and so forth. But when it comes to things that are not spelled out in the bible I am not ever going to say what you say or do is wrong. But in return you can't judge me and say what I do or believe is wrong either. How do you know who is right and who is wrong? How can any human person on this earth know for sure that the things that they say or do are not really sins? Or how can another person tell you what you believe is right is not? I never let people stop me from doing what I feel to be true in my heart. Desires are their for a reason I believe. People who have a close relationship with God know and can feel what he tells us personally, so if you cannot have a child and you feel as if God wants you to have a child and you use a sperm donor who am I to tell you that is a sin? Judging others for their beliefs is a sin. If you judge others for what you think is right or wrong then you are sinning yourself. So in reality one can not really answer this, only God can.

      If you claim to be a Christian then you are accountable to Christ's Bride, which is the body of saints. This is important, otherwise people slip into moral relativism and begin to make their own rules and forget how to administer righteous judgment.

      Jenn: The Bible tells us that one's heart cannot be trusted, so please be careful looking for it to guide you. As a child of God, you are not to judge the spirit of those outside the body of Christ. However, you are to keep other saints accountable.

      Hi CJ. I value your opinion, and are happy you have your beliefs, but the way I see it is that the bible also tells us that God puts desires in our hearts. These are things he desires us to have or to accomplish. These are the things to pray for.

      CJ Sledgehammerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, Jenn, in this respect you are as right as rain. I think the point I was trying to make is that we should lean upon God's word and not unto our own understanding. Sometimes our hearts lead us astray and sometimes we mistake our desires for God's.

    I suppose it would be determined by the way you approach the question and the way you perceive your fellow man. If you need to find sin in the actions of others, then there are ample reasons to condemn the act. If you attempt to take a compassionate course and see how the act of donating sperm can bring joy to childless couples and individuals, then you wouldn't see sin.
