GOD ‘S CHILDREN

How might GOD use people with disabilities, mental retardation and ADHD to his glory?
Jeremiah 29:11 states: For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “ They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. When our circumstances look hopless, God has a plan for his people. The abilities we have been blessed with at times lie dormant, a display of love given to maybe a person in need, shines the light on all involved. R OMANS 8:28 States: And we know that GOD causes everything to work together for the good of those who love GOD and are called according to his purpose for them. Our purpose as people of GOD are interwoven to one another, this is my belief, I cannot be selfish and expect to receive any good while my purpose is to dispense the gifts GOD has blessed me with. I wonder if children or people with exceptionalities are guardian angels watching over us instead of we thinking we are watching over people with disabilities.

This possibility, known as gene therapy, is only in its infancy. At present, no one knows how effective it will prove to be, even in the few conditions on which it is being tried - whether it will only be of relatively limited application, or whether it will open up many wider possibilities. It suffers both over-optimistic claims from some quarters and exaggerated dangers from others, over which the church needs to be discerning. It is, of course, not possible to assert exactly where the possibilities opened up by today's technology will lead in terms of future developments, but various ethical and moral issues are implicit in the technology which it is important to draw to the Church's attention, so that it is forearmed in an area where developments have been taking place at a bewildering pace. An editorial in the "New Scientist" in April 1994 drew attention to the need to weigh up what may still be future issues today, before the technological "horse" bolts from the stable and it is too late to lock the door. Potential Ethical Issues Perhaps the most basic underlying questions centre on a Christian......
