Sanctity of Life
I was asked recently to do a talk for Master Plan Ministries at Mesa State College (www.master-plan-ministries.org/msc/). The staff had heard my presentation on The Miracle of Life, Part 1, and felt it would be a good talk to present to their Christian college club Tuesday Night Live (TNL). This talk takes a look at the male reproduction system (a very conservative approach – no offensive graphics or terms) and why conception could never have even taken place unless designed functions were not in place from the beginning. One of the points I show several times is life begins at conception. The staff feels this talk is good evidence for the sanctity of life and want to share it with the students.
I have spoken to this group several times and have always had good response on different Creation subjects. Unfortunately, I will not be in town on the date they had scheduled. However, one of the Christian students volunteered to do the presentation in my absence. She is a junior majoring in chemistry with a minor in biology. I put the Miracle of Life power point slides on a CD, and then spent some teaching time with her. She had just finished studying conception (with an evolutionary bias) in her biology class and so had an understanding of the concepts. As I went through the slides with her, she was amazed at how much had not been taught in the class. She seemed to be in awe of her Creator. Pray for this young lady as she boldly stands firm in her belief, that she will be a shining light of Truth on campus.
Hopefully this presentation will help the students to see that life is too complicated to just have evolved … there had to be an Architect, a Precision Engineer. I pray they will see that human life is a precious gift from God. I pray that it might also give them knowledge to understand some of the issues of the next election dealing with the "personhood" of a child in the womb.
