Jeremiah 1:5 begins, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, . . .”
All of our days are ordained long before we are even born. From Psalm 139:
“13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.”
As humans can we discern, decide, or even comprehend when life truly begins? Clearly, God recognizes us and knows us before we were even formed–formed by Him. Who are we to determine when life begins? Clearly, we cannot delineate a precise point in time which life begins or in which God recognizes our life. However, the prideful, all-knowing humanist thinks he can determine these things. The goal is to keep pushing the date back. The whole idea is to make life meaningless and of no value. That will pave the path to all kinds of ideologies such as abortion at any stage during and after pregnancy, euthanasia, etc.
