Today we live in a culture of death. Society glorifies death. The focus is no longer on finding real cures and helping the terminally ill to get well and live, but that they should supposedly “die with dignity.”
Nowhere does the Bible say anything about “dying with dignity.”
God sees death as an enemy, and He has promised to destroy it someday.
1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked.
Ezekiel 33:11a “Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live:”
Even though Christians go to heaven, God does not like the deaths of Christians either.
Psalms 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.”
Most Christians misunderstand this verse. Usually when we think of something being precious to us, we think of it meaning that something is dear to us, and we really love it.
That is not what the word precious in this verse means. This word was translated from the Hebrew word “yaw-kawr” which means costly (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance number 3368 in the Hebrew dictionary.)
This verse means that the death of Christians costs God something, not that God likes it when a Christian dies. You can also see this meaning by reading the verse in context with the other verses around it.
Now everyone dies, because Adam sinned and we all became sinners.
It is now just a natural thing for people to die. Jesus takes the sting out of death for Christians, because we go to heaven and someday we will be resurrected and live in our glorified bodies, never to die again.
God even has a set time for each person to die.
So yes, it is true that each person will come to a time, when it is God’s will for them to die (unless Jesus comes back first). But God still sees death as an enemy, He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, and the death of Christians costs Him something, because they are no longer able to serve Him and help Him lead others to Him.
Therefore, we should never take action to end an innocent person’s life, or fail to take action to keep someone alive, no matter the condition of their health. Because if it is God’s will for a person to die, then there is nothing that anyone is going to be able to do to keep them alive. If someone is on life support and they are still alive, then God wants them to be alive. And we are to do everything we can to keep them alive, until God takes their life from them. Otherwise the Bible says we are guilty of murder.
Genesis 9:5-6 “And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.”
Proverbs 24:11-12 “If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?”
The Bible commands us to have compassion and support the week, not kill them!
1 Thessalonians 5:14 “Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.”
“Mercy killing” is Murder and the Bible says it is cruel!
Proverbs 12:10b …”the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”
The God honoring attitude about terminal illness or permanent disability is not “I wouldn’t want to live that way, so end my life” but rather “I would not want to live that way, so do everything you can to get me well until I die a natural death by the had of God.”
I have been there, I know!
15 years ago I was poisoned with mercury by Jesuits. I lost my cognitive abilities to the point that at times I did not know my own name. I also had stage 4 lymphoma cancer that had spread to my liver. My doctor gave me 3 weeks to live. Before I lost my mind really bad, I had heard my Dad imply that he wanted to euthanize me. He said, “How long do you ALLOW someone to live, if they don’t know anything”?
About a year before I was poisoned I had spent 2 years working on the Terri Schiavo case, and my Dad had been right there by my side helping me with it.
When I heard him say this I felt the worst betrayal of my life! I learned how to fight against euthanasia literally by sitting on my Daddy’s knee! But now that I am the one who is sick and he has to be inconvenienced by taking care of me, he wants to kill me!
A flood of adrenalin hit me, and my body went into flight and fight mode! I immediately downloaded and filled out a legal document call a “Will to Live.” Stating that I in no way ever wanted to be euthanized or “allowed to die.” I also designated my brother as my legal guardian in the “Will to Live.”
Canada had offered Terri Schiavo asylum, if someone could have gotten her there. Therefore, I told my brother that if I got bad enough and Dad started to take legal steps to euthanize me, then he was take me in my car and get me to Canada and beg for asylum. One of the last things I ever said to my brother, with a look of fear and desperation in my eyes, before I completely lost my cognitive abilities was “Don’t let them kill me!” He promised me he wouldn’t.
Soon after that I did completely lose all awareness and recognition of anyone. There are about 5 days I still have no memory of. My Mom and my brother have told me that I slept most of that time, and they were very careful not to let Dad know that my mind was gone. At the end of those 5 days I woke up in the middle of the night, and I started dying. Jesus asked me if I wanted to live and I said “Yes.”
The next morning when I woke up my mind was much better, and ironically that evening it was my Dad who came home with a supplement called DMSO. That ended up curing my cancer, restoring my cognitive abilities, and controlling my seizures.
Over the next 15 years I struggled a lot with seizure, mini strokes, and anxiety. I did not want to live that way, so I was determined to get fully well! I continuously looked for anything that would cure me. I did hyperbaric oxygen, chelation, sound frequency therapy, specialized diets, different supplements, and we anointed me with oil and prayed for healing a lot. Finally one day in October 2021, God fully healed me when again my brother anointed me with oil and prayed over me.
The doctor said I was going to die! My Dad wanted to euthanize me! And no I did not want to live that way! So I fought hard, I kept looking for answers, I kept praying for and believing God would do a miracle, and now after 15 years I am alive and fully well!
Do not take the easy way out of death! Do the hard work, and fight to live and get well!
My brother fully supported me for 12 years after our Dad left. I am now able to work and I am going to school to become an Internal Auditor. I work from home and I go to school online, so I will not be poisoned again (I was actually poisoned twice at 2 different jobs see the About Page).
My brother also wants me to keep living with him for safety reasons.
Someone just tried to kidnap me about a month ago at Walmart, and a few weeks ago our burglar alarm went off at 3AM, because someone tried to come through the kitchen window. My brother works nights and was at work. Now, he is panicked and is using credit cars to fence and gate the whole property.
I have had 4 kidnapping attempts on me in the last 5 years. My brother had me take a self defense class taught by people who had been in Mosaad, Black Opps, Green Berets, and other Special Forces. That training has now kept me from being kidnapped 2 times.
After he bough his house a couple of years ago, my brother also bought me a hand gun and taught me how to use it. Tennessee has now passed Constitutional carry, so I carry it everywhere I can now, and not just at home. Showing my gun is what stopped the last kidnapping attempt.
Internal Auditing is a job that I can do 100% from home. I have checked online job boards and there are a lot of those jobs available, but they all require a degree, So I am working on my degree. Also, I have a 4.0 GPA and I plan to keep it.
Fight to live and get well! Support the weak and help them get well! Chose Life! Never Chose Death!
Deuteronomy 30:19b “…choose life…”
