The beginning of creation is told in the biblical book of Genesis. We are told from the inspired word of God that our Creator made all things, and nothing made is not made by God. This is inclusive of all that exist.
The most impressive creation is that of life. So far scientist has not been able to synthesize life from a test tube. Will scientist ever achieve such a magnanimous quest? Yes, God has given the right and ability for man to fulfill Toyspace (space where we get illustrations of the Kingdom of God; nature with the purpose of God (UspVsp=Q); refer to previous articles). But, it seems that man must acknowledge God in all of His ways before being trusted by God and determined to be responsible enough.
The most outstanding problem when it comes to reproducing life is self-awareness. How is it that we are unique? One is one entity, and none other. Even if scientist synthesize life who and what is the unique soul? Does God have to contribute the soul or His part of the soul for a life to be aware of itself? The bible says that each life was in the mind of God before materializing in this world; God foreknew each soul. These would be the souls who can have self-awareness. Another consideration is does the spirit remain with God, our Creator, as God’s SPIRIT with our spirit. The bible does say that God is closer than a brother and that He inside of us is greater than he who is in the world. Also, there is a second death which is a death of our spirit if determined to be a hopeless sinner not saved by the Son of God. The biblical scriptures do lean toward our spirit being with God’s Spirit unless we suffer the second death which is spiritual.
Life is continuous; when it bleep life have ended. Although, the Son of God did raise the dead, and admonished His Disciples for not having enough faith in Him to raise the dead. This does give us an inkling that man can create life, but the key word is “Faith in God;” must one necessarily have to be mentally in tune to the stone (Uspace) of Isaiah 28:16 which represent the perfect Righteousness of God who is in the Son of God for all things.
Scientist can now grow a human life form from fertilization to be used as parts. The life form doesn’t have a soul; they only have bodily functions to a certain extent. This has raised moral issues, and has been contested by the church, and rightly so because men know not whether the life form has a soul or is aware of self.
God is the only giver of life at this time, and most likely forever. Evidently from the scriptures, only the souls that are in the memory of God whom He foreknew has self-awareness; thereby, constituting a life as we know it.
