Does God exist?

Two Babies Talk In The Womb
(A Faith Parable)

Two twins talk in womb of life after delivery in a parable about faith in God.

Faith is a tricky thing.  It’s having complete confidence in what we cannot see.   But how can we possibly believe in something we can’t see?   After all, if we can’t see something, how do we know it’s there?

Well, there’s a modern-day parable that’s been circulating on the internet for some time in which two babies talk in the womb.  Their discussion about life after delivery tackles this challenge perfectly!  The babies’ understanding of “Mother” is a beautiful analogy meant to parallel faith and God.


In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other:

Do you believe in life after delivery?

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

Nonsense. There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?

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.

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.

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

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.

Well, I don’t know, but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.

Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?

She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.

Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.

Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.

It’s not always easy to trust in what we can’t see, but it’s a choice we need to make.  God's word says in Romans 10, If you acknowledge with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you are made right with God.
