Christianity is the use of prayer to God to replace components of everyday sins and sicknesses engineered by man several thousand years ago in the Garden of Eve. Bioengineering applies the principles of science to problems involving biological material. It combines science, engineering, technology and medicine to create innovative devices, materials or processes for a diverse range of uses, but often related to improving human health.

Could it possibly be that one day bioengineering may resolve the acts of sin? Could there be a drug used from bioengineering that may manage the mental components of sins. Should it matter to God if science creates a solution that enables medicine to do greater things than prayer. Science made it possible for the body to fly in an airplane by Wilbur and Orville Wright but we are not sure whether prayer may or may not have contributed to it. The religious beliefs of these sons of a conservative clergyman remain elusive.

Science can replace the anatomy of the body. Science can change the anatomical structure of the brain. Why not use bioengineering to remove any components of sins from the mind. We thwart off pain with medicine and bring upon happiness with medicine. Although religion presents prayer to many different Gods to solve problems of the body and mind; bioengineering has a similar characteristic to solve problems of the body and mind through science. But what about ethics with bioengineering. Ethical issues in biomedical engineering are currently studied in the fields of bioethics, medical ethics and engineering ethics. There should be a religious ethics with stoning to death men and women in the Bible. It was a matter of ethics that went unchallenged because of a fear of the Old Testament God. To kill the body with a soul intact with rocks should not be on-par with modifying the body with medicine.
