God Reveals Himself in Nature
God’s Word is often revealed in the natural world. The Bible says: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament proclaims His handiwork.” Psalm 19:2 NAB.
Even people who cannot read or who are uneducated can understand some truths about God by examining nature.
Take a seed. Contained in even the tiniest seed is the fullness of the plant that seed will become. All the seed needs is air, food, water and sunlight to grow to fulfillment.
In the same way, even before science discovered genetics and the DNA of each cell, God was showing us through the seeds in nature that the seed of human life, the embryo, contained the fullness of the person. Not just a hope or a promise, but the whole person contained in that little seed. Those who believe that it's morally acceptable to abort a child deny this truth. It's a child, not a choice. It's a person.
