ALIVE! When Does Life Begin?
We believe that life starts at conception. From the very moment we are conceived, there is life!
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. - The Psalm continues..."All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be". God has a plan and purpose for every life, and His plans are for good.
God's Word is VERY CLEAR that life starts and conception, and science supports this! In we read, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."
Science shows us that human life begins at conception. The moment the egg is fertilized, the baby's genetics are already complete, the gender has been determined, the hair, eye, and skin color has already been determined. This child is All that is left is for the baby to continue to grow and develop.
With ultrasound technology, we can detect life in the womb as early as . Additionally, the "Father of Modern Gentics" - Dr. Jerome Lejeune states, "To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place, a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion ... it is a plain experimental evidence. Each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception."
The last piece of scientific evidence I'll share with you now is perhaps the most visually spectacular! Scientists were able to observe and record a spark of light at the moment of conception! You can see it here in this.
As clear as modern science makes it that life begins at conception, it's taken science a long time to catch up to what God had revealed from the beginning! Here's a quick look at some other scriptures that show us when life starts and from where it originates.
As we've mentioned before, in Psalm 39 David talks about how God is present in every part of our lives, that He is the one who formed us, and how all our days were given to us, even before we were conceived. In Jeremiah 1:5, we read that God knew us before we were even formed in the womb. also tells how God formed us in the womb, while Paul in shows us that God sets us apart even before we are born!
Let there be no doubt, life is precious and it begins at conception!
