Christianity and 21st Century Science
By Mary Efrosini Gregory
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. — Mat 24:32–33
Christians living in the 21st century will be offered many luxuries and health benefits that are truly remarkable, even by today’s standards. In the future we will be offered immortality, be able to upload a computer to our brain, and get injected with stem cells that will repair any organ that would otherwise need to be replaced with an organ transplant. However, not all of the options that we will be offered are permissible in the eyes of God. There is a reason for this: either they will hurt us or else they will hurt someone else. Since this technology did not exist when the Bible was written, we will have to refer to what has been written on parallel issues in order to make our decisions. There are ample verses in the Bible that guide us as to which options to choose. We will begin by examining the viewpoint of the people in the labs who are engineering the technology that will affect our lives.
