One day, two babies were arguing in the womb… – Eliezer Gonzalez

twins-in-the-wombIn a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

I didn’t write the “parable” above. I found this on Facebook, and I thought it was so good, I would share it here. It applies to all who wonder about life after death, or whether a better world than this exists, or even whether life can change for the better.

The good news of Jesus Christ gives us the answer to all of these questions: Most definitely yes!

And that’s precisely why Jesus said, “You must  be born again.”
