¿Qué Tiene que Ver Conmigo? por Teófila Gottfried

¿Qué tiene que ver conmigo lo que dice la Biblia? ¿Sirve en estos días lo que se cuenta allí? ¿No son anticuadas sus enseñanzas? ¿Qué tengo que ver yo con gente que vivió hace dos, cuatro o seis mil años? ¿Es posible aplicar a mi vida algo de lo que dice la Biblia? ¿O los Diez Mandamientos es todo lo que enseña? En tal caso ¿puedo considerarme "buena persona" si los cumplo? Lo que leemos en la Biblia tiene que ver con todos los seres humanos, sean cristianos o judíos, ateos o agnósticos, budistas, musulmanes o adherentes a alguna de las filosofías o nuevas religiones que surgen en el mundo. ¿Por qué?

Cryonics and Suspended Animation: Eternal Life Through Technology?


Cryonics, which should not be confused with cryogenics, is the study of how to preserve an animal immediately after cardiac arrest (stoppage of the heart), in a frozen state of suspended animation in the hope of resuscitating him in the future. In the broad scope of things, there are only plants and animals; man is an animal since he's certainly not plant life. Freezing has to be accomplished very shortly after clinical death while brain tissue is still alive if there's to be any hope of reviving the individual. Understandably, the concepts of cryonics are fascinating to some and repulsive to others. And they stir thoughts and conversation about eternal life, ethics, and even spirituality.

Resurrection to Eternal Life From Suspended Animation?

There is nothing abnormal or twisted in man's desire to live forever. The biblical scripture of Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "...he (God) hath set the world in their heart so that no man can find out the word that God maketh from the beginning to the end." The same scripture in the Living Bible Paraphrased reads, "...But though God has planted eternity in the hearts of men, even so, man cannot see the whole scope of God's work from the beginning to end." Most people wonder about the afterlife, despise death, and desire to live forever and know the future. This is the "eternity" referred to by the scripture. However, after much pondering and investigation, people still cannot understand the innermost thoughts of the mind of God concerning the life that he created.

It is therefore no wonder that some people embrace the hope of enjoying eternal life or resurrection back to life through the technology of cryonics. But, is their hope a false one? There are those who believe that cryonics only needs to be perfected to allow for someone whose heart stops beating to be rapidly put into a state of suspended animation to live again in the future. These believers point out the fact that certain frogs experience a type of suspended animation when they freeze during the winter season and spring back full force to life in the summer.

Suspended Animation for the Spirit: A Biblical Perspective on Cryonics

It cannot be denied that some frogs do appear to be a shadow of the potential power of cryonics to cheat death through suspended animation and to even be instrumental in attaining some form of eternal life. Nevertheless, consideration of what can take place with certain frogs cannot really be encouragement for what can take place with a man. Experiments on cats have caused these animals brain damage to some extent; but, this should not be surprising. Not even some plant life with a high content of water such as lettuce or watermelon can be preserved through freezing. When thawed, it is obvious that the original product no longer exists.

Today's technology is amazing; tomorrow's will undoubtedly be even more amazing. Is it possible that cryonics will someday allow for the successful preservation of the body along with the brain which "houses" the thoughts, personality, and memories of a person? Even if both mind and body were somehow preserved, there would still be a grave problem. Man is not a two-part being. He is a THREE part being consisting of a natural/physical body, a mind (soul), and a spirit body. In the biblical scripture of 1 Thessalonians 5:23, the apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Christ saying, "...I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Although people in general, and biblical scripture will loosely refer to man as mind and body, the wisdom of God's word reveals that man is mind, body, and spirit, not just mind and body. The biblical scripture of James 2:26 even teaches that, "...the body without the spirit is dead...." The medical world has its definition of death; but, God's definition is not quite the same and while man's technology could possibly someday preserve the mind and body, how will he resurrect a mind and body that lacks a spirit that can only be preserved by God? Does man secretly understand this? Perhaps he does. Perhaps this is why those Hollywood movies about the dead coming back to life always end in tragedy.
