No technology can ever thwart God’s sovereignty. His oversight extends even to those advancements that seem to take his place.
Are IVF babies knit together by God too? It’s a question from Carly. “Pastor John, hello! How can a Christian explain to non-Christians that every child is a gift from God when some children are conceived medically through IVF and other fertility treatments? I’m at a loss and I really want to be able to answer this question. I believe all children are from God. But how do I answer this question? I recently saw a story about a lesbian couple who conceived a child through IVF. The child was fertilized by donor sperm and implanted in one woman and then harvested and implanted in the other woman to carry to term. It’s so unnatural, but I know that child is meant to be here.” Pastor John, how would you help Carly answer this dilemma?
