I feel the strongest about designer babies. Based on my oversevation I fell that designer babies are good and bad. I believe that designer babies are bad for many reasons. I believe this because in the bible it says “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” The bible also says “This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.” Finally it says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” All three of these versus tell us that god created humans the way he wanted to.
Jesus Himself was proactive as He became the propitiation for sin, “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 John 2:2). His sacrifice made provision not only for sinners in the past and present but also for those who commit sins in the future. The same is evident concerning the gift of the Holy Ghost. Not only was it made available for those in that time, but it was imparted for all generations to come, “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call (Acts 2:39). Christians are to proactively obey God based on His Word and should never react based on feelings
Part 1: Abortion: Biblical stance for pro-life Several passages throughout the Bible support the pro-life position on abortion. First the focus will be on the relationship that God has with the unborn. In Jeremiah 1:4-5 God calls to Jeremiah proclaiming “before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” These two verses focus on the relationship God has with human beings by showing how He knows them before birth. In Psalms 139:13-16 David is praising God for forming his inward parts, and knitting him together in the womb. This also represents the relationship that God has with the unborn and how He establishes the days of his children when those days have yet to start.
A fetus is also able to react to sounds and touch while inside the womb. In addition, the bible teaches us that life is a gift, and every child should be treated as one. Many people believe that because a baby cannot survive without its mother, it has no rights or the privilege to live. Life has been proven to begin at conception through science, the bible, morals, and fetal development. Throughout gestational development, multiple benchmarks are met that show life begins at conception.
This is because Jesus is pre-existent to time unlike other beings that are born, he willed to be born of a virgin (Mudler, 2012, p.120), but in order for this to occur Mary needed to be free from original sin to prevent from impacting the pure nature of Jesus. The church believed and continues to believe that all humans inherit the stain of original sin from their parents at the moment of conception: thus we are all born in sin (McNally, 2009, p.101). Thus, Mary is born with sin; “but the woman destined to give birth to Jesus Christ can not have been born in original sin” (McNally, 2009, p.102), as previously stated. For Mary to be born without original sin her predestined life must have extended further than her birth but began at her conception. Pope Pius IX declared this is Innefabilis Deus: “Mary had been preserved from original sin from the first instant of her creation by a special grace in view of the foreseen merits of her son” (1854).
Ethel Song is the author of the poem “Spoken Into Creation” which talks about believing in God’s words. The poem is about how important the words are for Song and how in life people stole them from her. “Spoken into creation” talks about the challenges that come when people lose faith. Song had to fight in order to remember how strong she is with God. The poem uses faith to show how no matter what happens in life the words that god gives everyone are forever.
The resurrection of Jesus is a historical event that really happened, is not just a myth or a lie like some people say it is. It is so important that history is named after this, meaning it impacted the whole world and changed history forever. Jesus the Son of God did die on the cross and then resurrected from the dead. He did what no human has ever done or will do, all because of his unending love and grace for us. This has been concluded through a lot of resources like the Bible, circumstantial and historical evidence.
“The right to life is the first among human rights.” – Pope Francis Yet we, as people still consider abortion as a viable option for post-pregnancy. Do we, as humans, still have the right to be human when we deprive someone else, an unborn child, of his/her life? The 40th president of the US, Ronald Reagan had said to us a very significant point: “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” From this, I question that what if that unborn child was you? How would you feel if you know you had been deprived of your life merely because of someone’s irresponsibility? What right would someone have to be born when they themselves choose to kill their unborn child, someone who would have had a future just like any other person?
The best way to fix something is to tear it apart and rebuild it anew. God arranged my parents to be together even if they were unsuitable for one another, so that I could be born into the circumstances that I needed to grow into the person I am today. Jeremiah 29:11 states " For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil to give you a future and hope" (Bible Gateway). I now know that God does everything for a reason and though I might not understand it at the time, it is his perfect plan for
But why not try and push the barriers, of umbilical and adult, until we as a culture know every possibility. If scientists are quick to jump to embryonic research and destroying an embryo in the process, why not take the time and look at every single possible side. I know that not every person in this world has the same worldview as I do. I know that not everyone sees the embryo as sacred as I do, but I do hope that the world would push and challenge every option before this one. The Bible encourages us to stay away from evil even if it is to bring good to others in Romans 3:8
Each side brings their own points to the argument. Many people believe the only side Pro-Life advocates try to use to defend abortion is religion. That, however, is not true. This paper will set out to take a stand on why abortion should be illegal by looking at four main points that put religion aside. The medical world, political world, constitutional
Steve Cole says in a sermon that He wrote, What the Bible says about Abortion, “God directly created man in His image, which means that we have the capability of rational thought, personality, and moral responsibility” (Cole: What the Bible says about Abortion, 2). Knowing that humans on earth are made in the image of God, tells me and many others that there is an intended relationship between God and man. In Loades’ book, Creation: A Reader, this theory is brought up. That the purpose of the creation of man is to have a “continuing relationship with the Creator” (Loades, Brown, and Astley: Creation: A Reader, 1). Genesis 2:7 is another passage that stiffens my biblical worldview.
