You Can NOT be a Christian Transhumanist

Transhumanism is a philosophical and intellectual movement that advocates for the enhancement of the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies that can greatly enhance longevity and cognition. It also predicts the inevitability of such technologies in the future.

The worldwide transhumanist movement is going forward without the true purpose of the One who created ALL things (JESUS CHRIST):

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being (Revelation 4:11).”

Let’s read this article on this same topic by Mr. Smith. He explains today’s mindset into being self-sufficient (as god) without the Lord God as the only source:

“So-called “Christian transhumanism,” or the attempt to blend the transhumanist agenda with the precepts of Christian theology, has been around for some time. But there has been a recent resurgence of interest in the project. The book Religious Transhumanism and Its Critics, published in 2019, claims to offer “first-hand testimony to the value of the transhumanist vision perceived by the religious mind.” The volume includes contributions from a number of Christians. The “Christian Transhumanist Association” (CTA), formed in 2014, is actively dedicated to promoting transhumanism as a means of “participating with God in the redemption, reconciliation, and renewal of the world.”

The problem with these efforts is that the transhumanist worldview and the Christian faith are incompatible. One cannot be a “Christian transhumanist” — any more than one can be a Christian Buddhist or Christian Muslim. 

Transhumanism is a futuristic social movement. Its adherents believe that immortality is attainable in the corporeal world through the wonders of applied technology. The goal is to become “H+,” or more than human. Transhumanist proselytizers include academics like Oxford’s Nick Bostrom, Big Tech gurus like Ray Kurzweil, and popularizers like 2016 presidential candidate Zoltan Istvan. They promise that “the singularity” is coming — the time when a crescendo of scientific advances will make the movement unstoppable and transhumanists will transform themselves into super-beings who can enjoy physical life without end. 

That transhumanism became a phenomenon is not surprising. Western society is becoming increasingly secular, with an exponential growth…”click to continue reading>>

‘I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture (John 10:9).

This scripture explains the Good Shepherd (Jesus Christ) taking care of His sheep (the Believers of God’s Word). We all require being saved. Sin has separated us from God. If we seek holiness and righteousness, God sent provision through His son, Jesus. We must believe His words, and do what is suggested (see John 10:9 above).

Jesus is ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved (Acts 4:11-12).”

“Truly, truly, I tell you (Jesus said), whoever does not enter the sheepfold by the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber (John 10:1).”

There is only one way to Heaven, where God lives, and that is knowing, believing, and receiving Jesus into your mind, body, and soul. Changing and renewing your mind from this combination of humanity without knowing the purpose of the Creator’s Son. He is the porter into morality. The fantasy of being “Superman or Wonderwomen” is just that a fable. Things mankind think of like transhumanism.
