This woman needs prayers, a bible , Sister White books and and some outreach.
God bless Brittany,
None of us have the right to judge one another.
I just had a friend die of terminal disease after seven months on ventilators and IV's in ICU.
She finally chose after months of fighting a lost cause to say no more. She went off life support an died in four days, which probably would have happened months ago had not family intervened.
I have no real answer, but as a physician I have seen this scenario over and over.
All I can say is it's in God's hands and between the patient and her God. Every one deserves the dignity to die.
Pray for Brittany and her family, and don't be to quick to judge until you have been in her place.
Brittany needs to be assured of God's never failing love, and reminded that miracles still happen. My she go to sleep in the hope of meeting her savior Jesus Christ.
My friends sister Pam Rhodes, whom some of you may have heard sing on 3ABN from time to time, in June chose to go off continued life support after a prolonged illness. She was a God fearing Christian, that devoted much of her life in service to God.
Is that choosing to not live any longer, or is that turning it over to God?
I think much prayer would be needed before deciding. Illnesses can cause deep depression at times. Personally I feel even a little life is better than none. But again prayer is needed in these cases. Prayer for those who are ill and those who are ill certainly must pray for themselves. Jesus still saves to the uttermost and that includes healing grave illnesses.
She needs prayer and it would be nice if she's even able to read to have the Bible. If I had days to live and someone told me I needed Sister White books I'd be praying for their salvation.
I think she needs every up lifting resource possible that points her to God, before she leaves this planet including yes, Sister White's books.
I'm not judging her. It's a terrible choice to be faced with, but this is a really serious situation. As far as the bible goes I see no precedent for euthanasia. However, I do see a precedent, for much prayer and the word of God and encouragement in situations such as this. King Hezekiah was terminally ill and he prayed to the lord and was blessed with 15 more years of life. Who is to say this young woman cannot receive the same miracle through prayer?
Personally, I feel it's wrong for one to end their life even in the worst situation, but only God can judge and only god knows what is going on in the heart and mind of a person. However, I do certainly believe that the choice of euthanasia is not a choice that should be chosen without meaningful prayer and council with Jesus. Based on the article I fear that conversation between her and the most high has not been had in depth. That's why I posted my comments and hoped some here might pray for her and others in this very same situation and even send books if possible.
