Science and faith in bioethics. Moral perspectives on bioethical decisions


Modern man lives in a world increasingly high tech. It manifests itself in every step of our life, and over recent decades it surpassed all expectations. But man risks being dehumanized precisely by using science and technology in the procreation of human life, in extending and supporting it. Bioethics already raises many questions to be answered and this answer is given by each person according to their own values​​. Faith and Christian morals propose more general or more specific guidelines, so that man, including the modern one, can find in them a considerable support for a decision in the field of bioethics. How man thinks depends on how he lives and his decisions depend on the way he thinks. For a Christian, to live in God means to have "the mind of Christ".
