When did the Empire State building begin?

Was it when the architect first put pen to paper? Was it when the contractor began excavating the earth? Was it when the first foundation stone was laid? Was it when the final touches were made to the finished building? Was it when the inauguration ceremony was over and the building was opened to its first tenants?

We must also remember that the complete design for every human being is present in every cell of the human body. So when the chosen sperm enters the ovum and fuses with the cytoplasm thus uniting the male and female genetic information forming the 46 chromosome genome of the human body and cell multiplication begins there is an instantaneous combination of all the processes described above in the making of the Empire State Building.

We describe this as conception but as we know the Empire State building was conceived in the mind of the architect before he put pen to paper and long before a single shovelful of earth was dug. In the case of the human being the entire design is already present in the sperm and the ovum and needs only to be fused in order for building to begin.

The process of construction and renewal never stops from that moment on and continues until death. Human life is a continuum from the moment of fusion of the sperm and the cytoplasm until death. To say that human bodily life begins and ends in any other manner is to deny the evidence. This is why anyone who is pro-life opposes abortion and euthanasia which are extraneous interventions in the natural design of a human life and therefore a denial of the right to life of that human being.

Finally we are not our own. We are created beings and we are owned by our Creator who has given us life. He has granted us stewardship of our bodies that He designed and prepared for us to sustain our short lives here on Earth. We therefore have a responsibility to care for these bodies and cooperate with Him to learn His Law of Spirit and Life the better to follow Him through the veil of this human flesh into the New Creation that He has also designed and prepared for us.

In other words this human life we are leading has as its purpose the formation of the new creation, the new man in the image of God who will live forever. This means to abort an unborn child is to cut short this process with unknown consequences for that human being and for humanity as a whole since we are all part of the macrocosm which is contained in each of us, the microcosm, just as the design of the complete human body is contained within each cell of the body.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
