The Scriptures tell us God did not have a beginning, and He does not have an end. For you and I that may be hard to understand (possibly because on this earth we will have both!) Knowing I had a beginning (in my mother’s womb or even before that in the mind of God) serves to humble me greatly. I did not ask for life, and yet I have it! Think about it for a moment… the same God who put the stars in the sky conceived you in His mind before your mother conceived you. Then, the Scriptures tell us He “knit” you in her womb. While we probably will never be able to fully understand how God could always have been, we will one day move from the restraints time and space put on us and into eternity. Once we’re there, I’m betting our perspective on life will change radically. Then the thinking unborn babies are “choices” and human embryos are fodder for “experiments” will be exposed by God Himself. Until then, He relies in great part on you and me to carry the torch of “life!” Believe me; God is pro-choice in the sense He gives us choice in whether or not we follow Him. But the Scriptures are resolute in the fact He is pro-life when it comes to shedding innocent blood. Some 60ish years later we now look back at Adolph Hitler’s “experiments” as cruel, inhuman and even Satanic. Think back to your school lessons. In his mind didn’t Hitler believe he was advancing mankind through “selection” and through the sciences? Death only advances itself.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:13-14
