But today we are making some of those fantasy come true by cloning animals, people, and even curing illnesses. At the moment we can make this all come true. These days we can change people’s lives by changing organs and the improvements in gene technology have permitted researchers tochange a gene and modify genetics. We can grow mutations that are made to kill and or disable malfunctions in our bodies. In this day and age, we are able to genetically alter crops and even our animals. We have genetically changed a mosquito to aid in the control of mosquitoes that carry fatal diseases. What we once thought was imaginary is now starting to come true through testing and exploration. Some would say this type of treatment is challenging the laws of God, while others take it as a miracle in life.As stated by (Windelspecht, M., & Knight, J. 2013), gene therapy is presenting a genetically modified duplicate of a cell then placed into a cell that is diseased or has an unwantedtrait.

Further explanation from (Windelspecht, M. 2013) tells us that there are three forms of gene therapy. In-vivo gene therapy, ex-vivo gene therapy, and in-situ gene therapy.In-Situ gene therapy is a technique, when genetic material is introduced into a desired cell. Even though a great way to control the gene it is not always a good outcome because sometimes it’s difficult to hit the targeted gene. In-vivo gene therapy is a technique, when
