Combat sin through behavior change drugs?
n ‚ÄúScientific solutions to sin?‚ÄĚ, Suzanne Morrison (April 08, 2011) of Canada‚Äôs Mcmaster University asks,

Most people are familiar with the seven deadly sins ‚Äď pride, envy, gluttony, lust, wrath, greed and sloth ‚Äď but could there be molecular solutions for this daily struggle between good and evil?That‚Äôs what first year bachelor of health sciences students in the undergraduate biology course at McMaster University were asked to find out: their assignment required that they explore the molecular underpinnings of human misbehaviour.

At the Physiological Society’s DC annual meeting, they are to be feted for their project in which

181 students were divided into 18 groups, randomly allotted to deal with one of the four deadly sins ‚Äď sloth, gluttony, lust and wrath. They were expected to read sources to devise molecular ways to counter these sins.[ ... ] ...

Who took this pharmacological control jpw or was it given over? What are we suppose to learn from this take over? What are we to do or change in our lives to be part of the solution? Did you disagree with what I said below your post with regards the moral law? Not as a means of salvation, but of our sanctification and conformity to Christ; after he has brought us to a knowledge of sin through this school master. The laws incredibly high demands no fallen man could ever meet. That is what brings us to see our great need for something far more needed than cleaning the outside of the plate, so to speak.

simplistic approach  Find all comments by simplistic approach
In the gospels when addressing the 'health' issues of the mixed multitude there seems to be a distinction in terms; i.e. sickness, disease, and evil spirits.

John 5:13-14 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

This article seems to put the cart before the horse. The seven deadly sins mentioned are only dealing with second table violations. Yet, I find that most definitely the first table violations precede the second table and then there are the "hinge commandments" or (+) 4th and 5th commandments that will offset the others considerably, when (+)disregarded (-) consequence follows. That's where I started in my consideration of behavior changing drugs, a correct diagnosis of the problem and the Scriptural treatment considered.

This article addresses the symptoms and seeks to play science, it isn't addressing the sickness/sin in the whole of the moral law approach.

Anything to keep us from turning to Jesus Christ, repenting and having the relationship with the Father that He paid for on the cross.
