This article discusses the relationship between genes and innate behaviour, using the issue of homosexuality as a key example. The author maintains that our genetic makeup does not mean that we are not responsible for our choices and our sin. The author also discusses living with our limitations, specifically in terms of disability.
The field of human genetics is vast, involving many different technologies, offering many possibilities. The field of human genetics is also moving at great speed.

The article suggests how the church should respond from an ethical, pastoral and theological perspective.
