Life Library — Cloning

Life Ministry   •   The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod

  • First National Savings and Clone — As our world desperately grasps for control of human life, let us proclaim the blessed helplessness that comes by faith and the grace of God that brings us eternal life.

  • On Human Cloning and Genetic Entropy — There are other moral approaches to ethics, but for Christians the direction of faithfulness in how we live is found in our being created in the image of God and not in the image of man as exercised in imposing our will on creating a clone.

  • To Be or Not to Be ... a Clone — When or if cloning becomes available, Christians are reminded that procreation is God’s work given to the union of a husband and wife. The use of technology must remain in service to God’s Word.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent. Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number: 43-0658188
