All right, suppose I have a machine gun, and I know that somebody is standing behind a door, and I fire that machine gun. That’s murder, right? Now suppose I have a machine gun, and I know that nobody is standing behind that door, and I fire the machine gun. That’s not murder, right? But suppose I’m not sure whether or not somebody is standing behind that door. Thinking there may or may not be, I fire that machine gun. Am I, then, guilty if somebody dies? Yes.
You see, before I can take that life, I need to be sure of something: not whether or not that it is life, but that it is not human life. If everyone says, “We can’t be sure,” then I say—if you’re going to err, err on the side of life.
Jeremiah 1:5a says, “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.”
