Episode 10: Matthew Eppinette
HOW DOES A CHRISTIAN NAVIGATE BIOETHICS?
Today’s conversation comes from the intersection of science, technology, ethics, religion, and culture. I sat down with Dr. MATTHEW EPPINETTE, Executive Director of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, to talk about a vast array of bioethical issues – everything from transhumanism, vaccines, emerging medical technologies, end of life care, and the large amounts of data we have at our fingertips. As a leading voice in this area, Matthew holds a PhD in Theology with concentrations in Christian Ethics and Theology & Culture from the Center for Advanced Theological Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. One of the biggest points Matthew emphasizes is how to enter into these topics with humility, grace, and a worldview that is rooted in Christ.
