- The Promise of Transhumanism Appeals to Lost People Who Want to Achieve Eternal Life Apart from An Almighty God Who Created Them

A transhuman future in which mortality is optional may sound like paradise, but if it arrives sooner for some of us than for others, it could prove to be a dystopia. Transhumanists, many of them associated with nonprofits and think tanks like Humanity Plus and the Extropy Institute, have long been driven by the fear that our entire species could be wiped out by nuclear war, asteroid collision, technological accident—or a pandemic.
Covid-19 has spotlighted the promise and peril of transhumanism, the idea of using AI technology to overcome sickness, aging and death and achieve eternal life.
Ever since the Tower of Babel, fallen man has dreamed, schemed and plotted a way that they could have eternal life apart from the One who created them, that is God. They don’t want to die, no one does, but neither do they care about or wish to be accountable to a holy and righteous God who has every right to demand that from His own creation. Transhumanism is the idea that with enough advances in technology, unregenerate man will eventually figure out how to be immortal. But that will never happen.
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” Hebrews 2:14,15 (KJB)
It will never happen, because in order to do that through transhumanism, man has to somehow be able to leverage the intellect God gave him, in the body God gave him, while breathing God’s air, while feeling his heart that continues to beat in his chest only because God allows it to, and create an eternity that God is not allowed to be a part of. Did you know that the bible has a name for a place where that will happen? It’s called Hell. Don’t go. Transhumanism offers the illusion of eternal life while blinding you to the truth of the word of God.
