Transhumanism is alive and well, and exists in a community near you. At least if you live in Florida, USA. The dream of the rich and famous to live for ever – without the free and certain promise based on what Jesus purchased at the cross – is shaping up. The same old deception that caused our first parents to fall from grace, is still being offered after all that God did to restore right standing for us before Him.
Transhumanism spirituality revolves around how technology can impact the greater truths our species faces, including whether a God exists or not, or even theistdeism – the idea that God might have once existed, but no longer does.
S0-called “mindfiles” are created where adherents can store information about themselves from which to download their personalities or consciousness when their frozen bodies can one day be brought back to life. Think it is crazy? Not everybody does.
In addition to mindfiles, many Terasem supporters are, naturally, believers in other life extension technologies. Most Terasem members also want to use cryonics, where dead patients are frozen for long periods of time as they wait for new medical technologies to revive and cure them.

His name is Zoltan Istvan, a transhumanist “aiming to put science, health and technology at the forefront of American politics,” his campaign advertisement says. Read more here
Why is this important to know for Christians? Because it confirms that the deception that Jesus warned us about for the last days, are happening right before our eyes, and it comes from successful professionals and highly educated people.

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption– that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:27-30
