I have the following question: the science evolved without precedent, especially in the last 20 years, in all domains. It is true also that there are technologies that help us for which we need to be graceful to God. For me it is very clear that nothing can be discovered without Holy Spirit inspiration. For me is not clear, however, why God allowed to discover some technologies that are not for the benefit of the humanity, like invitro fertilisation, change of sex, organ transplant etc? And I don’t mention here the ultra modern war technology that could destroy the world if it would be out of control. Maybe because God wants to punish us, because we really deserve it … ? Thank you for your reply and God bless you!
God created the man perfect, He made the man in his image. And when God saw the man “it was very good”. But at the chapter 3 from Genesis it is described the bigest tragedy in the history of humanity, with the most affecting consequences, the fall in sin. In the garden of Eden, first man and woman chose to get out from God’s leadership and guide and to sale themselves to devil. Later on, Jesus taking human form, came and brought Himself as a offering for the sins of the whole humanity. He had no knowledge of sin, but God made Him to be sin for us, that we may be saved. When people have knowledge of God, but they do not want to worship and glory Him as Creator, God gives them up to an evil mind.
“For there is a revelation of the wrath of God from heaven against all the
wrongdoing and evil thoughts of men who keep down what is true by wrongdoing; Because the knowledge of God may be seen in them, God having made it clear to
them. For from the first making of the world, those things of God which the eye is
unable to see, that is, his eternal power and existence, are fully made clear,
he having given the knowledge of them through the things which he has made, so
that men have no reason for wrongdoing;” (Romans 1:18-20)
Those things of God which we can not see, His eternal power can be seen not only in the nature, but in each human being. Looking at us, at the way God created us, we can see already hand of God and we have no reason for wrongdoing. However people ….
“Because, having the knowledge of God, they did not give glory to God as God, and did not give praise, but their minds were full of foolish things, and their
hearts, being without sense, were made dark. Seeming to be wise, they were in fact foolish.” (Romans 1:21-22)
This is the explanation why we are the witnesses of inventions that are not in the benefit of humanity. When man voluntary chooses to commit to vain thoughts, his mind and heart will become dark. Then man starts to be proud of his wisdom (after the flesh), but in reality in the eyes of God he became foolish.
“For this reason God gave them up to the evil desires of their hearts, working
shame in their bodies with one another; Because by them the true word of God was changed into that which is false, and they gave worship and honour to the thing which is made, and not to him who made it, to whom be blessing for ever. So be it. For this reason God gave them up to evil passions, and their women were changing the natural use into one which is unnatural: And in the same way the men gave up the natural use of the woman and were burning in their desire for one another, men doing shame with men, and getting
in their bodies the right reward of their evil-doing.” (Romans 1:24-27)
One of your question was why God allowed the discovery of some technologies that are not for the benefit of the humanity, like invitro fertilisation, change of sex? I think God answers this question when He says that He gave them up to the evil desires of their hearts. As a result, man starts working shame in their bodies, body that when we look at it, it is impossible not to see hand of God. But these men …
“And because they had not the mind to keep God in their knowledge, God gave them up to an evil mind, to do those things which are not right;” (Romans 1:28)
When man chooses to depart from God, he becomes the victim of his crazy mind, doing things which are not right. Conseqences are many, please have a look below at some of them:
“Being full of all wrongdoing, evil, desire for the goods of others, hate, envy,
putting to death, fighting, deceit, cruel ways, evil talk, and false statements
about others; Hated by God, full of pride, without respect, full of loud talk, given to evil inventions, not honouring father or mother, Without knowledge, not true to their undertakings, unkind, having no mercy. ” (Romans 1:29-31)
Living in the desire of his crazy mind, the man becomes full of wrongdoing and given to evil inventions. The expression “given to evil inventions” is self explanatory and in Greeque has the same meaning of “invention” or “discovery”. In other words, these are all those inventions that contradict with Law of God.
Inventions that are not for the benefit of humanity are not from God, but are consequences of man’s sins. These are the result of a crazy mind that consciously choses to depart from God. God created us for His Glory, to reflect His character on this earth, but it is our personal choice how we live our life.
