Our Spirit And God’s


I just read your reply to the question Does God Create Every Person? I agree that God does not create each of our bodies but “the process of procreation was designed and instituted by God.” I believe, however, that our spirits which we receive while in the womb were created by God. What is your thinking on this?


We’re born with our Spirit attuned to the Spirit of God. Once we reach the age of reason we have to choose whether we want it that way or not. If we don’t chose to stay in tune with God then we’re free to go our own way. Later we can choose to reinstate the union between God’s Spirit and ours by becoming born again, in a sense returning to the way we originally were. This might be what Jesus meant by saying we have to become like a little child in order to enter the Kingdom (Matt. 18:3).
