Over the past 25 weeks we have been looked at the various parts of the so-called Simple Cell.  For your convenience I am listing each week’s article below along with the link to that article.  You may wish to bookmark today’s article for this valuable reference.

This will be the last installment in this series.  Next week I hope to start a new series on the human body.  In that series we will look at the various systems, organs and special features of the human body that clearly demonstrate that we were wondrously designed by an infinite Creator God.

From the beginning of this series we have seen that nothing in the cell just floats about nor is anything left to random chance.  Each and every structure of the cell has a specific purpose with many of them having multiple functions.  We saw that the cell has its own infrastructure much like a city. It has its boundaries, streets and transportation system, an internal and external communication system, a manufacturing complex, a central processing center, and a waste disposal system.  In the vast majority of instances, all of these complex systems perform far more efficiently than anything man has yet to construct.

Also realize that in many of the installments of this series, we only skimmed the surface of the structures studied.  There are volumes published on the details that we have omitted.  Just imagine then if what we saw was only a sampling of the complexity of the cell, how much more there is left to learn.  The complexity of the cell is so vast that it is incomprehensible to many.  New discoveries are being made on a regular basis.  The more powerful microscopes get the more intricately woven detail we see.

Truly the cell is far from simple and is a testimony to our awesome Creator God.

To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever.  Amen. 1 Timothy 1:17

When does life begin?

Take a journey from conception to birth with Dr. David Menton, former professor of anatomy at the prestigious Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Dr. Menton provides both a biblical and scientific answer to the question of when life begins.

Taken from one of Dr. Menton’s lectures, this video will reveal the wondrous design of the womb along with the numerous miracles involved along every step of the development of the unborn child.

Following the tragic starvation induced death of Terry Schiavo, Dr. Menton clearly shows the value and sanctity of human life.

With grace and sensitivity Dr. Menton concludes with a salvation message and explanation of the second birth process as described in John 3
