(Christian Institute) People wanting to be euthanized are traveling to Belgian accident and emergency departments and asking to be killed.

Last year, more than 2,000 people were euthanized in Belgium—more than double the number five years earlier.

Belgium legalized euthanasia for adults in 2002 and for children in 2014.

Dear Reader, our hearts are deeply grieved by the ongoing devastation in Iraq, and through this we have been compelled to take a stand at the gates of hell against the enemy who came to kill and destroy. Bibles for Iraq is a project to put Arabic and Kurdish audio Bibles into the hands of Iraqi and Syrian refugees—many of whom are illiterate and who have never heard the gospel.Will you stand with us and make a donation today to this important effort?

    Suicide is murder. Life must be lived out to the end as God has given it to man. Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.” (John ch.5) “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” ( 1 Corinthians ch.10) Listen to Jesus and choose life.

            You need Jesus to be forgiven of all your sins and get saved. Don’t love the darkness. (John ch.3)

      I hope you never face a painful slow terminal illness, one that has you wishing it would just be over, but should you i want the decision whatever you choose to be yours.

        Dying in a hospital bed is luxury for most of mankind. Mankind should worry over the life after death, not the manner of dying or even funerals, and trust in Jesus for salvation. “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so
        Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly
        wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for
        salvation.” (Hebrews. ch.9)

        Suicide is murder. All men including self belong to God. Read Exodus ch.20.

      So you would trust these Unethical doctors to keep there word in the case you lived through their botched attemps at killing you. Tell me did you give them money before or after they made you a living vegetable.oh never mind since now your unable to tell me.

    I imagine most (not all) of those who trust in Christ don’t choose this route. As hard as the suffering is they wait for Gods timing. When a person who doesn’t know Christ sees no hope and they are suffering, they see no reason to stick around. It’s sad.

    Come for the waffles. Stay for the ability to treat your own body as thou wilt.

    We had a young fellow here who wanted to be euthanized so he stepped out in front of a semi tractor trailer rig .After all the surgery,s and missing body parts such as legs and arms and .stuff he now sings a different tune he says hes fortunate to be alive. Strange how things work out ..but then Gods ways are not our ways..

  • Robert

    If I was a unethical belgian doctor i would rob your money by promising you death and keep you alive to harvest parts. You would be surprised at what people will buy for lots of money.
