dc.description.abstract Genetic engineering has the potential to drastically change man, his environment and his future. This study project endeavours to contribute to the debate from a theological-ethical viewpoint - more specifically from creation theology. The problem is thus formulated: "To what extent does genetic engineering influence the question of the source and essence of life and what is the effect it has on the theological perspective of God as the Creator and Sustainer of life." In order to use genetic engineering as an instrument to subdue the earth as God ordered man to do, certain guidelines should be followed. Every new experiment should be subjected to certain ethical questions. At the end of Chapter 3 some of these questions are being discussed. In the "what" question the facts are being weighed. This forms the basis for all responsible ethical reflection. The "why" question scrutinizes the motive of the scientist and inquires about the ultimate use of the new technology. In asking "how", the means and methods used in experiments are being put under the spotlight. The "who" question has on the one hand the object of this science in mind - man's integrity must always be maintained. The question "whither" brings the potential future consequences to the fore. Chapter 4 gives the results of this study project. Genetic engineering is, in my mind, still part of the implementation of the commission in Genesis 1:27-28, provided that it is done in dependance on and in responsibility to the Creator. en
