From C.P. Smith

By Staff | Jun 23, 2010

To the Editor:

I am not writing this letter to be critical of anyone. I just wanted to write to find some answers, or perhaps, more opinions.

I heard a U.S. Senator make this statement before congress left D.C. for its August break. The Senator was Bill First. He said this: When we get back, we will begin a debate that will test our faith.

The topic was stem cell research. He then said: We will discuss the point of when does life begin. This is a great question for educated people to answer, when you think of how long we have been in existence.

So I decided to do some searching on my own. When he said the debate would test our faith, right away I knew he was talking about God stuff. So I looked in the Bible and I could not find the answer to his question. I don’t think anyone could answer the question.

I saw in Genesis where God breathed life into his creation. And He, God, called him Adam, which means “first man.” And from my understanding of the Word, that same life begat and begat and is still begatting today.

So I think the question isn’t “When does life begin?” The question is “When did life begin?” So if the good readers read this and want to respond I will be reading your letters. Be gentle it’s my first letter.

P.S. I was going to write about abortion not being a problem, it’s the symptom of the problem. Maybe I will get into that one sometime. As soon as I find it in the Word of God.
