39. Some theologians such as John S. Feinberg have suggested that the problem of distinguishing the pathological from the non-pathological could be theologica1ly phrased as the attempt to discover those genetic anomalies which are the consequence of sin in the world. This approach may turn up a dividing line somewhere in the vicinity of that predicted by the traditional separation of therapy and enhancement, but it will exchange the problem of defining health for the problem of defining the consequences of sin. We may suspect that writers such as Peterson will not he terribly impressed by this attempt to exchange one set of demarcation problems for another, but perhaps sucb parallel analyses would utimately enrich each other.
