"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."
Following the recent historic International Summit on Human Gene Editing, held in Washington DC, it has become clear that humanity is on the verge of experiencing a radical technological transformation that will challenge our preconceptions as to what it means to be human. And while these advancements rightly raise questions regarding the ethical application of these emerging technologies they are also challenging preconceived notions regarding theological belief. One place in theology where such technological developments will certainly have a dramatic impact is on the current Christian concept of spiritual gifts.
