This week, the 7th grade Life Science class under the instruction of Mrs. Brenner, began studying embryology and reproduction. Students will explore this information through the lens of what God says in the Bible about His creation.
“At SCCS, we investigate all matters from a biblical perspective. Whether it be novels or wars, mathematical relationships or artistic expression, we strive to see how God's character and goodness is revealed, how human nature is manifested, how grace is extended, how the gospel applies and how Christ-followers respond,” shared Mrs. Brenner. “In this particular study, we see that the design and function of the reproductive system reflects God's purpose for man and woman to complement, serve and support each other. We see that God designed this process to protect two delicate cells and allow them to combine genetic material to form a zygote which can then grow and develop in a safe and nourishing environment. We consider that we are a special creation made in God's image, and that the process of sexual intercourse not only produces offspring, but also serves as a profound expression of sacrificial love and commitment that two people reserve exclusively for one another.”
