Major breakthrough in stem-cell research



Ron, Don't mistake me; I am


Don't mistake me; I am certainly not defending stem cell research resulting from embryonic tissue usage.  Having-said-that, doctors dance very closely to God everyday in many different ways.  It would be difficult to practice several types of medicine without doing so (surgery in a triage setting can come very close).  Some treatments were developed from poisons or illegal drugs ([opium] (a few even were poisons and/or nerve weapons initially).  It is difficult to know the influences or the mindsets of those whose research played some part in the pharmaceutical advances we take for granted today (you might find yourself equally distressed at the origins of some of them.)

Life is sacrosanct, and abortion is murder, none-the-less, if there is a cure for diabetes developed, I would hope that you (and your wife) would benefit from it.  In a strange paradox; if only those of this world were to benefit, we could lose the voice of too many like yourself (who, rightly, demand a Godly review of all such matters).  Again, you are correct in saying that God will judge (no one can possibly imagine the scope of the unintended consequences of genetic manipulation, other than God.) but, I can't believe that God would allow an answer to disease that was not good (in-and-of-itself).

27So God created humans in his image.  In the image of God he created them.  He created them male and female. Genesis 1

3When Adam was 130 years old, he became the father of a son in his own likeness, in his own image. He named him Seth. Genesis 5

15You haven’t received the spirit of slaves that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the spirit of God’s adopted children by which we call out, “Abba! Father!” 16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17If we are his children, we are also God’s heirs. If we share in Christ’s suffering in order to share his glory, we are heirs together with him. Romans 8

9Jesus replied, “I have been with all of you for a long time. Don’t you know me yet, Philip? The person who has seen me has seen the Father. So how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? John 14


“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Blessed are the people he has chosen as his own.” Psalm 33:12 GW
