What is Considered Life?

Facebook Pro-LifeI often read article and pictures on the site reddit, which has some interesting things as well as some stuff you should avoid…  One of the things I like about the site is the ability to look at and analyze the arguments of those that do not agree with us, and see insights from the other part of the culture.

I strongly believe that Christianity is the truth, and that we have answers to all of the questions that can be brought up, but unfortunately we are often ill equipped to deal with reason and logic.

So, I’ve bookmarked some of the things there, and I’ll use this blog to help you see what I’m seeing and how to deal with these types of arguments, if you so choose to do it.

One of the most difficult things for me, as a Christian, to process is that there seem to be “good things” that people do apart from Christianity.  Why is this a problem?  Because the Bible states quite clearly that only those that are in Christ can do good.

Rationally, this poses a problem.  If the Bible states that we can’t do anything good, that all our goodness is as filthy rags, and yet people around us are doing the same good deeds that we’re supposed to do to show our Father in Heaven, what’s the deal here?

Happy CoupleAnother aspect to this discussion has to be the care for which the man had for his woman in the Old Testament. This is seen in a variety of locations.

In the story of Ruth and Boaz, Boaz takes up the cause of Naomi not having kin and Ruth’s husband’s death by being her kinsman redeemer. Jacob was willing to work for Laban for 14 years to get Rachel, his daughter. Proverbs put a high value on a good wife. The whole Song of Solomon places the physical and intimate parts of a married couple, putting emphasis on the love between the couple.
