"Let me start off by saying that I've gotten incredibly lucky and have no student debt at all." - Said No One Ever

Just kidding. Many have been blessed tremendously to have graduated with some form of diploma or certificate without having any student debt to payback. However, that is not my situation.

And for me, this was not always the case.

Dr. John Oakes taught a class titled Christianity and Bioethics at the 2013 International Christian Evidences Conference at San Diego State University. The class includes a discussion of the various technologies which we can assume will be coming in the fairly near future. John proposes the kinds of technologies Christians should embrace and those which they should consider opposing. Compassion, the desire to relieve suffering and the concept of responsible spiritual stewardship can guide wise choices, while the push to enhance human abilities beyond the “natural” present problems.
