Euthanasia continued....


Holy Scripture does not address the subject of euthanasia directly, as it does not seem to have been an issue in those days; but it does give principles for our guidance. For instance, mankind was created in the image of God, so this gives human life a dignity and sanctity that we must acknowledge. In the New Testament book of James, we are even forbidden to curse our fellow men because they are made in the similitude of God.(1) Cursing would be an affront to their dignity. Many countries agree with the Judaeo/Christian life-values.
