IVF and the Destruction of Human Life

Albert Mohler posts this morning on reports that over one million embryos have been destroyed in Great Britain. These embryos were "left overs" from the process of in vitro fertilization. He writes,

Far too many evangelicals seem to turn a blind eye to this reality. While we celebrate the birth of a child and the gift of life, we cannot blind ourselves to the harsh and grotesque reality that this technology also means the destruction of human life.

I mention this because I want you to keep it tucked in your minds until we get to the sixth commandment in our series through Deuteronomy. Technologies are changing rapidly, but our moral bearings do not change. Technology must always be controlled by our love for God and for others as spelled out in God's Word.
