Why Christians should embrace Transhumanism

The Christian Post has published an article by Christopher Benek on why Christians should embrace transhumanism.

It has always been the goal of Christians to care for and heal the sick, give sight to the blind, help deaf to hear, the lame to walk, give voice to the mute and guide persons toward holistic betterment in community. 

He goes on to discuss Christianity's responsibility to use technology for the betterment of the world. Read more at:

    This premise is completely wrong and is based on a humanistic view. "It has always been the goal of Christians to care for and heal the sick, give sight to the blind, help deaf to hear, the lame to walk, give voice to the mute and guide persons toward holistic betterment in community. " The goal of Christianity as the name implies is to be like our Master Jesus the Messiah, the Christ and compel people to choose good and believe in Messiah . It is not “towards the holistic betterment in community” as this quote says. That the community will become better is inherent in nature when it embraces God’s forgiveness brought about by Jesus shedding of His Blood and resurrection as we in faith accept that forgiveness and confess Jesus Christ as our savior. Nevertheless, this transhumanism must happen. It was prophesied by Jesus when he said that in the last days it will be as in the days of Noe, (there was transhumanism in those days and was exceeding violent in those days as is in our generation) before the coming of the Son Of Man. he was speaking of his 2nd coming.

    Transhumanism does pose several difficult problems from a Christian perspective. You highlighted that the stigma of “narcissistic hubris… self actualization” does distress many Christians. I think that the concept of “Posthumanism” is a false one. I do not believe that God would have created us in a changing world if he did not intend that we change with it. I think that there is merit in seeking a “more advanced” condition. Where the danger lies is where the illusion of power over one’s own essence/condition causes one to turn away from God. The pursuit of physical or mental enhancement, I believe, can lead to a closer walk with God.
