In recent years, as the culture wars surrounding euthanasia have raged on, I have often wondered whether Christians idolize life. Yes, we ought to honor the image of God in every person, yet we also ought to acknowledge the limitations of these God-given bodies and minds. If Scripture is clear about anything it is that God is God and we are not. God is the only eternal one, and the only one capable of bestowing eternal life. Human bodies are frail and human life is fleeting. We come from dust and return to dust.
