I must admit that my assertion, made with clear intention in mind, did not
allow those intentions to be derived from it. The statement is a criticism
of the possible achievements of science. We may prolong life by harvesting
organs, etc.; however, eternity belongs only to God and not to carnal man.
Man cannot avoid death--will never erase the sin nature of man--and its
consequent encounter with God.
