This week, we’re looking at so-called “poor design” in the human body.
A common example is the birth canal. You see, as mothers well know, it’s painful to have a baby.
Here’s why: the female pelvis is fairly narrow, so it’s hard for a baby’s large head to fit. Is this bad design? Well, the Bible gives us the answer. Genesis chapter 3 specifically says that pain in human childbirth is a consequence of sin! It’s not because God designed us poorly. It’s because childbirth is broken by sin!
Our world isn’t the world God made—it’s a groaning, fallen version of the “very good” world God originally made.
