    Why is of Spirit which is from above and of flesh which is from the earth spoken of as born? How relative is the analogy of the two?

    In the flesh; we are generated by our earthy father and born into the world of our earthy mother.
    There can be a miscarriage by the will of God in this birth.

    In the Spirit; We are generated by our heavenly Father and born into the kingdom of God of ??????????
    Can there be a miscarriage by the will of God in this one?



    Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut [the womb]? saith thy God.

    God is the author of life, humans are all madein His own image, why would He "will" the miscarriage directly?

    In same fashion, God is the One who brings spiritual life to honor and glorify him, why undo it?
