God's Genetic Programming

Me ~ There is a new agenda on the horizon, genetic enhancement. The argument is that such manipulation of genes is evolutionary for man. What do you think?

John ~ First of all, the idea of intentional evolution is an oxymoron. Darwinist evolution is a mindless process that takes place over eons of time without purpose or direction. Gene manipulation in the laboratory is not evolution in fact it is creation which is the very thing that scientists deny happens in nature. So, if we are going to manipulate our own genes, this is creation and we are playing God.

Secondly, the whole idea that life is getting better through Darwinist evolution is in contradiction to the second law of thermo-dynamics. I point this because, evolution requires energy. In a state of entropy any kind of change for the 'better' (and what would that be?) would not be necessary. Better actually would be conservation of energy and thus less evolution; it would be better in fact to be a single cell that stores energy.

Me ~ I know that we are in a state of entropy because this is a fallen world. However, when you look at the world, you see incredible complexity which definitely has the Creator's mark on it. God seems to have a plan... are we evolving in God's program? Some say yes as we select our mates. In fact, this is part of the argument being used to do genetic enhancement. What do you think?

John ~The idea that we must improve ourselves physically is not scriptural. In fact, the flesh is called the enemy of the spirit. Because the spirit is the true nature of man in the image of God. And, as scripture says over and over everything physical will be destroyed by fire included fools who think that they can live forever by becoming machines. The entropy in the universe was put there by the creator so that evil would not continue forever. It has an expiration date. And the entropy in the universe prevents corruption from spreading to far before succumbing to this natural decay.

Me ~ I agree, but what about man's (including woman) choosing a mate. Don't we make choices based on physical appearance? 

John ~ Yes we do. All based in the five senses which are of the flesh and are corrupt and not an accurate means of choosing a mate. But, certainly it is the means used by fallen man which is why it is not working so well. We should be choosing someone that God selects for us. I mean we should be making a choice based on God's selection for us, God brings you together. If you seek the Lord, you will know the 'right' person when you meet them.

What Consequences Can We Expect?

Me ~ Not so many posts ago, we blogged about marriage between a man and a woman. As of this past week, the US Supreme Court recognized 'gay' marriage. There is no need to go on about marriage between a man and a woman in this post because if anyone wants to know what we blogged they can go back and read it. Now, I just want to ask, what consequences can be expected from this decision?

JohnLegally, the supreme court has decided that laws no longer have meaning which means that laws are arbitrary and we no longer live under the rule of law which was established about 400 years ago. This essentially is where the Roman Empire was just before its collapsed as the emperors became arbitrary and tyrannical. What this means for the individual as the group is that we cannot trust the written laws to mean what they say.  

Socially, this means that the fundamental construct of human society is now loosely associate in fact by bare threads. What once was stable society held together by a strong fabric of God fearing people has been changed by costumed individuals playing God.  If the family wasn't already on death's door, it is certainly in the coffin now. What does this mean for the future? It means chaos and anarchy for social reality.

Religiously, it means that the state now will work very hard to shut down any religion that contradicts the dictates of the state. Which is essentially is where we were 200 years ago. So, we have gone from tyranny to liberty to corruption back to tyranny.

Ultimately, we have moved from a nation that trusted God to a nation that leans on its own whims. The covenant we made founding this country has been broken and now we will pay the price for our folly. It will be the most devastating, destructive and terrifying upheaval since the fall of the Roman Empire in Europe.

What will come out on the other end side of this is any one's guess, it may not be the country we once lived in nor be a country at all.  God is going to the only thing He can do once a society codifies sodomy into law and that is wipe it out.

Gender and the Bible

Me ~ Could transgendered people proclaim that their agenda is supported by scripture... as a way of overcoming the flesh?

John ~ They could claim it but what they are forgetting is that God's creation is very good. He created two genders which is repeated often in the Bible; there are mentioned only two genders that He the creator intended for humanity.

I would like to add that it seems to me that what is actually going on is an indulgence in the flesh. It is not just skin bones but the flesh includes the soul and mind. We have people who are poorly socialized or have genetic defects and are mentally ill. These are fleshy problems, not spiritual problems. So, by allowing their flesh to lead them, they are making changes that God never intended. When they stand before the creator, they will stand as the gender that He created them as either male or female, not regarding their feelings. Corruption enters us at birth, even before birth given that children in the womb as they develop are being socialized by godly or ungodly parents.

Me ~ Would you apply the same reasoning to homosexual and bi-sexual individuals?

John ~  Absolutely, because we are dealing with people led by the flesh rather than people led by the spirit.

Me ~ What about transhumanism as a means of overcoming the flesh, is that indulging in the flesh or is it trying to escape it?

John ~ Once again, the flesh is anything not of the spirit. When we indulge in anything that is not the spirit, it is of the flesh. So transhumanism is indulging in the flesh. Transhumanism main goal is immortality in the flesh rather than allowing God to do what He said He will do which will be to provide us with glorified bodies; which will lead us from death to life. Transhumanists mistakenly promote the idea that man can achieve eternal life. Mechanical things break down just as much as biological. the universe is in a state of entropy and everything is breaking down. This is because since the fall, the world as we know which includes our perception of the cosmos and even our experience of it is in a state of entropy.

Me ~ What should people be doing given their propensity for indulging in the flesh and their likely view that if this is a state of entropy then why not indulge in the flesh?

John ~ Indulging in something in that is always decaying is the height of foolishness. The Bible says that everything is going to be destroyed with fire when God returns to create the new heaven and new earth. That means that all humans and everything that the flesh can come up with with be destroyed. The better choice would be to indulge in the spirit which is eternal order to be saved before that event.
