What does the bible say about cloning? And Humans acting as gods?
The Bible says absolutely nothing about
cloning. Personally we do not believe such is
proper as God has given us a law of reproduction as recorded
in Genesis. To say the least it is a very dangerous route for man to
take. The cloning of animals has not proven
very successful or beneficial as yet, we best leave
human cloning alone because we may be setting ourselves up for
human disaster. As to man acting as god one is in very dangerous
territory in so doing. In Acts 12:20-23 we have an
account of Herod accepting the accolades that he was
a god, and because he did not reject such a
pronouncement and give God the glory or credit he was eaten by worms and
died. All of man's decisions should be made in accord with the Word of God.
God has given man the power to make laws and decisions but if one ignores the will of God he does so at his own peril.
What does the scripture say about artificial insemination?
There are no scriptures in the Bible on the subject of abortion and cloning as abortions were not done then and cloning was not something that was known until two or three years ago. There is one passage in Exodus 21:22,23 that indicates that an unborn child is indeed a person. In verse 23 when it says, "And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life" it means if the child that has been aborted dies the responsible party mentioned in the previous verse will have to pay with his life. As to cloning there is nothing we can place our finger on in the scriptures. I have grave reservations about the matter and I believe there are some unresolved ethical questions that must be dealt with. We are afraid that a can of worms is being opened when we start cloning human beings. We are not sure that God is going to look favorably on such a practice.
