Whereas in the line of human thought life begins at conception, the Bible does show that life commences even before conception takes place. God told Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5 (KJV) "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." How could God have known someone who was not in existence yet? God is saying we were all in existence in his divine realm even before the union of our parents in conception. It is not therefore biblically correct to declare that life begins at conception. God sees beyond our limited dimensions and perfectly knew us even before we were born. Isaac was not born out of chance but through divine providence. God knew him even before his birth was prophesied to his parents. However for the sake of engaging with secular laws, we have accepted the logical but unbiblical view that life begins at conception.
