Do We Have a Right to Die?

by on


This is Ken Ham, encouraging the church to begin a new reformation concerning God’s Word.


“Euthanasia” is the idea that those who are severely handicapped or terminally ill should be legally allowed to end their lives. Now remarkably, this idea is gaining popularity. Some countries have even legalized euthanasia for children.

But what does God’s Word say about this practice?

Well, euthanasia is really an attempt to “be as gods,” just like what Adam and Eve wanted. But we are not God . . . and we have no “right” to try and be gods.

The Bible makes it clear that the taking of an innocent life is murder. Euthanasia, under the guise of compassion and mercy, is really murder.

Life is precious and a gift from God. Decisions of life and death belong to our all-knowing God—not fallible humans.
