There is nothing wrong with helping people walk again or using technology to fix things in people that are broken so they can live the remainder of their lives with fewer problems and in better health. The problem is when transhumanism is looked at to become the progenitor of “eternal life.” This is completely opposed to God’s created order. He does not want us to live forever physically as fallen individuals. This is why death occurs. It is through death that those who are saved will have new bodies that will be incorruptible. Paul tells us as much in 1 Corinthians 15:53, when he says, “For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
We’ve all heard terms like “nanotechnology,” and possibly even the more recent, “big data.” The former was popularized by K. Eric Drexler in the 1980s and it refers to building machines and robots the size of molecules, so that they are one or two nanometers in width.
