If there ever was a person who should be rallying for legalised euthanasia and assisted suicide, it would be Joni Eareckson Tada. She has suffered greatly for half a century now. She is a quadriplegic who has been confined to
Believe it or not, some people will be upset with my title. You see, some “Christian” teachings out there would question whether this woman is even a Christian. They might even claim she is a fake, a fraud, a phony.
You all should know about the short life of little Charlie Gard. His parents – and millions of concerned people worldwide – did all they could to possibly extend his life while some doctors and judges did all they could
The push to legalise euthanasia is never ending, and Victoria is one of a number of Australian states hard at it. Just the other day the Ministerial Advisory Panel on Voluntary Assisted Dying released its final report on the issue.
We all know about the murderous Islamic terror groups such as IS and all the horrific persecution of Christians and others they are involved in. Christians in the West are also facing persecution, although admittedly nowhere near as severe –
In my previous two articles I looked at some shocking cases of the pro-death culture in action. Some of these examples were actual cases of euthanasia or assisted suicide. Others were certainly in the same ball park, but could be
Sometimes an issue or event is so momentous that it is well worth talking about more than once. Just yesterday I discussed three recent cases of euthanasia (or cases closely related to it), and one of them was so significant
The push for legalised euthanasia, or assisted suicide, is taking an existing problem and making it much worse. All over the West suicide rates are high, yet the ‘compassion as killing’ crowd simply is making the situation even more pronounced.
We are living in what seems like unprecedented times, with little or no respect for human life, human dignity, and the well-being of our children. Everywhere adult desires and wants are trumping the rights of the child, the right to
Given that my website contains 2,233 articles on Christianity and 1,457 articles on the culture wars, it may be thought there is little left to say on these topics – at least from me. Well, there is always a new
Politics is not everything and politics cannot save us. But the political realm is nonetheless quite important and we avoid political engagement to our own detriment. It is incumbent upon all believers to have some political awareness and involvement. If
The culture of death seems to be on a roll, ever expanding its deathly grip on our culture. Instead of valuing and cherishing life, we now find ever new excuses to snuff out life. This is found in our daily
The push to legalise euthanasia continues in the West. The Benelux countries led the way with legalisation (the Netherlands, 2002; Belgium 2002; Luxembourg, 2008), and some other states and countries have followed suit since then. While euthanasia is presented as
With the push for the legalisation of euthanasia being made throughout the West, Christians need to think carefully and biblically about this issue. My forthcoming book, The Challenge of Euthanasia, will certainly offer plenty of detailed argumentation – both
The case against legalised euthanasia needs to be spelled out in detail. This is especially urgent since there seems to be so much moral and intellectual fuzziness concerning this debate. At the moment I am working on a book on
In a widely publicised case, a 29-year-old American woman who found out she had brain cancer announced that she was going to take her life on November 1, 2014. The woman is an advocate for a euthanasia group, and has
I have had the privilege of working on and off with David and Ros Phillips over the past 25 years on pro-family, pro-life and pro-faith activities. I have often shared platforms with them, and done joint projects
The euthanasia advocates do not just want legalised euthanasia for the terminally ill: they basically want it for everyone for any reason. And many of these pro-death advocates have made this quite plain over the years. They really are fixated
The Spanish philosopher Santayana said that those who fail to learn from history will end up repeating its mistakes. This has certainly been the case in secular Europe. It seems we have learned nothing from the horrors of the twentieth
