When Does Life Begin?




At the Tuesday evening Round-table Discussion Group at Wharncliffe Baptist, the pastor asked those at the table, “Ok, let’s discuss….At what point does life begin?”

A young lady that had just recently joined the group answered right away saying, "At conception, of course!".

All around the table nodded in agreement except for long retired Pastor Jacob. He just shook his head slowly from side to side. Finally he leaned forward and in his soft kind voice said, "My dear friends, you are all wrong. Life begins when your last child grows up and leaves home!”
