Pastor Dan Gayman


“Lo children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”

(Psa. 127:3-5).


This is an urgent appeal to the covenant children of the Living God to consider the most endangered species on our planet. White Children have never been listed on the “Most Endangered Species List” but I assure you they deserve to be at the very top of that list. White children conceived and born from a genetic background of Anglo, Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian blood are indeed the most endangered species in our time of history.   As a voice crying out of the wilderness I appeal to all who love God, revere His Word, and have any sense and confidence in those called to proclaim the Word of God to give heed to this call.


Conservation efforts to save species of plants and animals from extinction in the U.S. began very early in the 1900s. A species of plant or animal is considered extinct when there are no living members of that group found alive anywhere on earth; or when all members of that group have died off. In December, 1973 the U.S. Congress signed the Endangered Species Act of 1973, to protect and preserve certain threatened and endangered plants and animals from extinction. This act of Congress replaced two previous laws, the Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966 and the Endangered Species Conservation Act of 1969.


Sadly no one in the U. S. Government, and even more importantly very few voices from the Pulpits and those responsible to stand as Watchmen presiding over spiritual and moral values have responded to the most endangered species of all; that of Anglo, Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian children!   Only an occasional voice has been raised to warn of the ever plunging birth rate of Anglo Saxon children and the steadily declining population of the White Race not only in America but throughout the entire Anglo-Saxon world. The “total fertility rate” or the number of children the average White woman in America is predicted to have in her lifetime, based on current age-specific rates is 1.8. This is of course much lower than the Hispanics who are reproducing at the highest levels of any racial group, followed by the Blacks and other non-white groups.


Demographic experts warn that the declining birth rate of the White Race is plunging throughout the world and this is especially true throughout the countries of Northwestern Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere. Plunging fertility rates combined with ever accelerated levels of non-white racial immigration into homelands occupied by the White Race is rapidly becoming a crisis in many of these countries. Russia, for example in an effort to boost the fertility rate among Russian women has proclaimed a National Conception Day with special prizes for families who conceive a child. Other countries in Europe are giving financial incentives to couples who will conceive children.


The “civilization crisis” that now afflicts America and the nations of the once Christian West is poised to bring about the genocide of the White Race. Abortion is the ultimate form of birth control. When the pill and all the other contraceptives fail then abortion is the final step into the abyss of birth control. Sodomy represents a total war against the conception of children as men and women involved in this heinous crime against God and nature make utter fools of the bodies God has given them.   The horrible sin of miscegenation poisons the blood of every child born into a racially mixed family.


Birth control is unknown in the Bible.   The only form of biblically endorsed birth control is mutual abstinence that is mutually agreed upon by the husband and wife (I Corinthians 7:5) and those times of abstinence called for by God Himself (Leviticus 12 and 15:19-28, 18:19, Ezek. 18:6, etc) and this to preserve the health of the woman, enable the seed of the man to become stronger, and strengthen the bonds of the marriage covenant.   The Christian Church has never historically speaking, endorsed any form of birth control beyond abstinence.   The wide spread acceptance and practice of birth control was foreign to former generations of our people. Only after about 1930 did the Christian churches in America begin to accept and endorse birth control.


Shame on the parents and American educators providing sex education in the public schools that not only teach young people how to become promiscuous but actually teach them the multiple forms of birth control, some of which are lethal to the life that has already been conceived.   The bitter fruit of this liberal humanist education is a nation where millions and millions of teens and young adults are rife with multiple sexually transmitted diseases, some of which will bear life long consequences.   Our young people need to be taught the moral absolutes of God’s Law and converted to a personal walk with Jesus Christ. The last thing they need is instruction on how to safely practice the sin of fornication!


From the beginning of the creation God commanded and ordered the multiplication of children (Genesis 1:28; 9:1-2).   The Divine Call for Adam man to take dominion of the earth and all things therein necessitated the multiplication of children. Children are the future of any people and without children there is no future for the family, the church, or the nation! The primary purpose of the marriage covenant is to provide the means by which children can be morally conceived, nourished, trained, and educated to become the carriers of promise for a civilized people.


In the absence of children, unless God for His own reasons has chosen to make the womb barren, (Genesis 16:2, 30:2; I Samuel 1:5, etc), marriage has lost it primary reason for existence.   Ministers who render pre-counseling before marriage should caution couples who do not plan to have children to reconsider and unless there is some very serious reason reverse their decision to abstain from conceiving children. Ministers should also give careful instruction to any couple contemplating marriage the biblical position on children and birth control.


I pray to the Living God that across this land called America the voice of Rachel can be heard as she weeps for the children that are not only not being conceived but those that are being murdered in the bedrooms of America by lethal methods of birth control as well as in the murder mills of Planned Parenthood!   “Thus saith the LORD; A voice heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children refused to e comforted for her children, because they were not.” (Jeremiah 31:15).


This is a call for repentance! A call to refrain from birth control except for the times of abstinence previously cited.   Can we not trust the wonderful and mighty God who created heaven and earth to known when and how many children He has planned for the man and woman joined in the covenant of marriage which He Himself ordained? Can we simply trust in the sovereignty of God to know when and how many children He has purposed to be conceived?


May I encourage and thank every member of the covenant family that embrace Jesus Christ and the divinely inspired and providentially preserved Word of God, to personally thank, encourage, and help in every way that you can those married couples who are attempting to defy the anti-Children propaganda of the 21st Century and multiply children to the glory of God and the everlasting blessing of our people. The greatest and most important ministry that families and the church can promote is the blessing and multiplication of children.  


May the Living God by faith in Jesus Christ bring a spirit of repentance upon our people and let them learn to love children as Jesus Himself loved them.   May the heart of every married woman of child bearing age be as eager to conceive a child as was Sarah (Genesis 16), Rachel (Genesis 30), and Hannah (I Samuel 1). And may every husband become convicted of the importance of children in the man’s call to exercise dominion of God’s earth! Indeed “children are an heritage of the LORD; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.” (Psa. 127:3, 4).



No Christian can read the Word of God Divinely inspired and Providentially preserved through the ages without coming to the knowledge that Marriage and the Family are the cornerstone, the very bedrock of God’s Plan for His covenant children on this earth.   The biblical definition of marriage is one man and one woman of the same flesh (genetic background) joined together in union with God for the duration of their lives on this earth. And that the primary call from God for Adam man to take dominion of the earth and of all things therein are to be accomplished through the institution of the family; resting on the twin pillars of a Godly Marriage and the multiplication of children!


The biblical model for marriage, dominion of the earth, and the multiplication of Godly children is and forever shall be in all of time and history the only lawful means by which a civilized people can build churches, communities, and a nation.   Marriage and children patterned after God’s model plan in Scripture will always and forever be the only lawful means by which a civilization can endure.   Any attempt to alter, circumvent, or deny God definition of marriage, family, children, and the call to dominion will never find success.   The 21st Century model for marriage and the children is a total rejection of everything God and Scripture teach and the consequences are beyond human calculation.


One family holding fast to the biblical model for marriage and the multiplication of children is a family in Rockford, Michigan. Jay and Kateri Schwandt welcomed their newest child, a boy who joins 11 brothers. This couple have welcomed the newest arrival as a gift from God and even though they had hoped for a girl, they are content with the birth of their 12th son into the world. The 12th child, Tucker Ray Schwandt, was born August 4, 2013 and joins 11 other brothers ranging in age from 21 to 19 months. The entire family of boys are all delighted to have another boy join this family of twelve sons.


The oldest son, 21 year old Ty, can’t quite understand the reaction the family gets. “Everyone says it’s crazy,” he said. “It’s just normal, though. It’s how it is.” Jay and Teri Schwandt started their family at a young age. They grew up in Gaylord, were high school sweethearts, and married at 18. They didn’t plan on having 12 children. Jay has only one sister, and he thought three or four kids would be a big family.


Teri is the 13th child of a family of 14 kids. But even she thought they would have “only” seven kids. Their first son, Ty, arrived while they were students at Ferris State University. Zach was born three years and three months later. Drew arrived two weeks before Teri graduated. The couple kept going to school----Jay studied for his law degree from Cooley Law School, and Teri got her master’s degree in social work. Jay, now 39, runs a land surveying business. Teri, 38, does not work outside the home. Through the years they just kept on having babies. “We just kind of opened up to it,” Teri said.


Along came Brandon, Tommy, Vinny, Calvin, Gabe, Wes, Charlie and Luke. Faithful Catholics, the couple occasionally used the natural family planning method to space out the births of their children and it worked well, Teri said. But most of the time they simply were open to having children. “It’s up to God,” she said. “We figure God knows what he’s doing.”

As the family grew, the parents encountered a range of reactions, from “Are you crazy?” to “What a blessing.”


“I am surprised how many dads say “I would have loved to have more (children),” Teri said. Although she sometimes feels like she’s living in a locker room, Teri says she enjoys living in a house full of boys.

There is plenty of activity---wrestling matches and competitions---but boys also learn to be nurturing as they care for younger siblings. If a little one creates a fuss during Mass, an older brother will pick him up and take him to the back of the church, without being asked. All the older boys can change a diaper. “They don’t like it,” Teri said. “But they can do it.”

And they learn to pitch in with the chores, doing dishes, cleaning and vacuuming. In sixth grade, each boy starts doing his own laundry.


In Summary


What now appears as an anomaly, that is a large family of twelve children, used to be very common in this country.   21st Century America has drifted far from the former foundations of marriage and the multiplication of children.   And we have paid a very dear price for casting aside God’s model for the institution of a covenant marriage and the multiplication of Godly children. The U.S. is now essentially a dysfunctional nation with our homes, churches, communities, and the nation at large witnessing a meltdown of the moral standards that once characterized the American nation.


Jay and Kateri Schwandt are to be commended for their willingness to challenge the social and cultural restrictions now imposed upon the biblical definition of marriage and children. The willingness to allow God to determine when and how many children should be born is a tribute to the faith walk and trust in God’s sovereignty that this couple shares.   When they did space their children they employed the only biblically sanctioned method of birth control known to God and Scripture and that is abstinence (I Corinthians 7:5).


May the God of Israel inspire and bless in supernatural ways those couples who will purpose to cast aside the human reasons and lame excuses used to endorse birth control and prevent the conception of children.   God loves children and calls for their multiplication. God does not endorse the addition of children but rather their multiplication!   The key to the future of Christianity in this country is resting on one profound question?   Will God fearing men and women resist the cultural mold of the 21st Century and build a marriage as defined by God and bring forth children in the absolute trust and sovereignty of God who alone can determine when and how many children should be born into a family!
