Re: The Bible regarding life at conception
I'm not as well versed as others here, but my persoanl opinion is:
Sperm has life bearing abilities, as does the egg. One in itself is merely an organism.
When the two are combined and new cells are created, you have life.
The cells split into more of the same, and you have a growing 'thing'.
What amazes me is how we choose to differentiate between what is viable and what is not.
The lady that lives below me has a daughter that is wheelchair bound.
One guy I work with has a son that is wheelchair bound.
If ya talk to either one of them, they have NO regrets of the children that were given to them. Note: Given to them.
Sorry for rambling but my 1st was lost in a misscariage. I never had the chance to meet him/her. My son... I would gladly die for.
My opinion is life starts at the 1st cells creation.
It's not Biblical, but it's my belief.
