This is an interesting discussion .......
Thank you, CareSoBig, for initiating this thread. Over time immemorial, scientists have tried to explain the 'how' of things but as much as they have endeavoured, none has been able to explain the 'why' of things. For example, scientists have tried to explain 'how' the universe was formed vide the 'black hole' theory (and many other theories) but 'why' was the universe created remains a mystery. Irrespective of whatsoever perspective we care to lean on, all points to a grand design of a sovereign Creator.|
I believe in a good God who has created this world and who has also created us for a purpose. The fact that we are alive today is convincing proof of His great love for us. During procreation, had it been a different sperm, you and I would have been a different person. We will all find life more fulfilling, more joyful and infinitely more purposeful, if only we can be made aware of His love, His grace and His mercy.
We all cry for the many babies whose life have been willfully taken away (through abortions like what have been shared in this thread) for doing no wrong on their part. We can only ask for God's grace and mercy for taking such creations away when God has already allowed them to be created and formed in the first place. God knows each one of His children by name. It pains Him, it grives Him when we hurt His children and when we choose to take His little ones away.
Thank you, machjo, for highlighting to us the basis for biblical truths. I agree with machjo's clarification. The words in the Bible are not just written by men per se. They are inspired by God and thus the words are really God-breathed.
I also agree with meln88 that the world is not getting any safer. We have seen many atrocities that have been committed by people in so many places. Our only safe refuge is to come back to our Creator who alone can protect us and gives us comfort in our times of need. He alone is faithful and His love is unchanging although we are less than faithful and that the best of our love for one another are often tainted for we are all less than perfect anyway!
I hope this sharing is helpful to all. Thank you for lending me your ears and giving me your time!
