Since “be fruitful and multiply” isn’t in the New Testament, does that mean Christians shouldn’t?

    Christians take what they want from the Old Testament and ignore the inconvenient bits.

    You know that 1 Corinthians passage says absolutely nothing about being fruitful and multiplying, right? Christians just decide what they want to see in the Bible and see it in passages that are only tangentially related.

    "For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy" (I Corinthians 7:14).

    Consequently, husband and wife are still "Being fruitful and multiplying" producing "children" under the New Covenant as well.
