The Human Body

I recently went to see the Bodies Exhibition down at the Atlanta Civic Center. What a treat. For those of you who still haven't seen it, it's open until September 10th. Check it out. There were so many different ways the human body was displayed. For those of you unfamiliar with the exhibit, it is a visual walk through of the human body. It is catergorized into all the different systems of the body and it displays the intricate details of how it all is put together and sustained. Coming out of that time makes me wonder how anyone who really contemplated the complexity of it all could really talk of random atoms bumping into one another to create the human body.

Also, the display of fetal development will stop any pro-choice person and cause them to reconsider their philosophy. Models and well as real fetuses were displayed to show the progressive development that goes on within the womb. At week 6...the heart, liver, and intestines are forming. At week 8... fingers and toes. By week 14...muscles and sex organs are formed. In this country alone, 4,000 babies a day are aborted. Internationally, 46 million a year. An overwhelming majority do it as a means of birth control. And about half of the abortions occur after the 9th week when most vital organs and tissues have developed. I bring this to light to make us all aware of this tragedy. Let us love those who have gone through it, and take a stand to preserve life as we are provided the oppurtunity. And let us give glory to the God who thought of and designed our bodies, and who sustains our every breath and heartbeat.

"As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything" - Eccl. 11:5


  1. I always find it so fascinating to hear the arguments of those who would say that a zygote, embryo or fetus is not a person. And interestingly enough, our own laws are contradictory: kill a pregnant mother and you will be charged with TWO counts of murder. But if the mother decides to kill the SAME child at that SAME stage of pregnancy by having an abortion, it is perfectly legal. Either it is morally wrong or it is not. There should be no double standard.

  2. good verse man...sorry i missed the exhibit
