So when do you think life starts?
Some people say one thing some say another.
It really does matter, especially if you are a preterm pre-born baby.
I wonder what the Bible says concerning when life starts?
Lets visit a few scriptures to see.
The book of Genesis tells us that we are made in the image of God. We are His image bearers. Each one of us is proof there is a God. We are created to bring Him glory and honor.
In the third chapter we see that Eve is named by Adam. Her name means she was the mother of all living. We are all her children by our blood lines.
Our DNA can be traced back to Adam and Eve. Our life code and plan in our DNA started with them.
Many people today are arguing about when does life start and when does the child in the womb have a spirit. In biblical times there were no ultrasound machines.
Here is a verse that talks about life being in the blood.
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life.
Scientist tell us that the blood cells start to form at three weeks of life.
The tiny human heart starts to beat at three weeks. As soon as it is formed it starts to beat. Now thats the miracle of life!
