Is There Life Before Life?

Q. Jeremiah 1:5 states the Lord knew Jeremiah before He formed him in the womb. Are there any more verses in scripture that show we were with God in spirit form before we were born?

A. Life begins at conception. (Psalm 139:13) The notion of a pre-existence, or spirit life before birth, comes from Mormon doctrine and is not Scriptural. When God stated that he knew Jeremiah before He formed him, He was saying that knowing the end from the beginning, He had already seen all of Jeremiah’s life and had set him apart to be a prophet to Israel before he was even born.
