Why is cloning wrong?

The very essence of human existence is love, because, we are created in the image of God (who is love) (Gen. 1:27) and are a product of God’s love expressed through our parents union of love (Eph 5:25). Artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilization and cloning procedures therefore, dehumanize human reproduction, by taking the act of unitive love (Gen. 2:24) out of it and converting it into a purely cellular process. Furthermore, during in-vitro fertilization and cloning procedures, lethal violence is committed against many human beings, who (as embryos) are destroyed; thus breaking God’s commandment (Exodus 20:13). Some of these procedures also deprive the resultant human beings the dignity of knowing their origin (biological parents), causing them grave injustice and psychological trauma. Unitive love, which is conjugal union in marriage, is inseparable from procreation, because, conjugal union’s physiological purpose is procreation. These procedures, therefore, dehumanizes unitive love. This causes division, divorce and turmoil. Therapeutic cloning, human beings are cloned, then killed in their embryonic stage and then their cells are harvested for medical use. This procedure, therefore, is one-step up in its evil intend compared to the other type of cloning.

Biologically, our humanity is determined by our genetic make up and not by our stage of development. Furthermore, an embryo is a stage in human development; just as infant, toddler, youth and adult are. Therefore, to justify killing of frozen embryos, which are doomed to die from being discarded, is similar to killing prisoners in the concentration camp for research, because they are doomed to die.

Its like playing God - He created man in His image. and no person on earth can do that. Only he can breath the breath of life into man. Thats how man became a living spirit. What the world may do is clone a body and soul (intellect, will, emotions) but he cant produce a spirit. An animal has a body and soul but no spirit. It would be a freak and a disaster. They are treading on dangerous ground to try to clone a human.

I believe the image of the beast will be a human clone and the anti- Christ will use his evil powers to make it speak.

The world will show us what we never imagined before, nor want to see. The whole cloning thing is turning star trek / blade runner movies into sick reality.

One day, we'll be at full eternal peace with GOD in heaven, one day.
