Euthanasia has been defined as “mercy killing.”
What I was reminded of this week is that, for honest Christians at least, there can be no such thing.
Bible-believing Christians know that judgment comes after death, and how can hastening God’s judgment on an individual be mercy? We do not know their hearts, only what they’ve shown us. How can we know but God’s reason for allowing the suffering (and therefore, continued life) holds more mercy then throwing someone unready on the unavoidable Judgment?
