Jesus says the commandment to love God with everything you’ve got, and to love your neighbor as yourself is important than any other law or religious ordinance. It would be a relief if it weren’t actually impossible in practice.
We tend to think of spirituality like fast food—we order something, we get it, and then we’re better people. The Jesus Way is different—it’s more slow food. A lifelong path of being healed from the inside out.
“It doesn’t matter what I think about Assisted Death. And frankly, it doesn’t matter what you think about it either. What matters is that we are called by God to confront the reality of our own mortality in the context of the cross which tells us that death is not something to be feared.”
